Weekly Recap #15: Week of 8/20 – 8/26
Hey everyone! It’s time for another weekly recap post of all things happening on and off the blog. This week I’ll be linking to the Sunday Post, which is hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer and to Stacking the Shelves, which is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.
Last week was such a hectic week for me that I can barely even remember what happened. Gotta love weeks like that! We were short-staffed at work so I spent all day everyday stressed out and running around like a chicken with my head cut off. My son also started soccer practice this past week and had two birthday parties to go to, so I think I also spent most of my non-working hours also running around like a chicken with my head cut off, haha! Needless to say, I’m very excited to be on vacation this week. I’m really looking forward to sleeping in, relaxing, and of course, getting lots of reading done. I’m also anxiously waiting to see if I can score tickets to Springsteen on Broadway since they go on sale this week. I desperately want to see his show so fingers crossed!
For the blog, I managed to finish reading Mask of Shadows this week so stay tuned for my review of that. I also just started reading Girls Made of Snow and Glass, which is a Snow White retelling. So far it is meeting my expectations and I’m enjoying it, so hopefully that will continue. I should also have a review for it up by the end of the week. I’ve also said that I’ll be hosting my next giveaway when I reach 1,000 followers on twitter and I’m getting really close, so hopefully there will be a giveaway soon! 🙂
I think that’s it for me. Have a great week, everyone!

WHAT I’M READING THIS WEEK
STACKING THE SHELVES
Almost at 1000 followers, that awesome! My daughter is now in grad school, so it’s been a while since I had to deal with the hectic school day schedule (confession: I sort of miss it, but mostly I miss her). Good luck with the new school year and all its accompanying chaos. I liked Flora Banks. It took a little bit to get used to be in Flora’s head, but that was what I thought was so brilliantly done by the author. Enjoy your week.

Oh gosh, I hate to even think about the day when my son goes off to college. 5th grade and turning 10 is hard enough, lol.
I’m really looking forward to reading Flora Banks. I’ve read a lot of great reviews for it.
Have an amazing week!
Sounds like a busy week! Hope you have a lovely vacation and get to relax and read. COngrats on being close to 1000 followers. Can’t wait to see what you think of Artemis. Have a great week!

Thanks! I’m really excited about Artemis, especially since I was so sure I would be rejected for an ARC. I literally screamed for joy for I received the approval email from Netgalley, lol.
I hope you have a wonderful vacation. You deserve some time off.

Thank you so much!
Have a great vacation! Oh, it would be so great to have just one more week. Maybe I can get the chance later. And I hope you can do a lot of reading and go to Broadway too 🙂

I sure hope so. Thank you!
Enjoy your time off! Hope you have a lovely time.
Hope you have a great week off, and score some tix to Springsteen. Sounds like fun! I can’t wait to read Warcross !!!

Thanks! Same here. Warcross is another of my most anticipated releases so I really hope it doesn’t disappoint.
HA! I love the ecard. 😀 I have heard so-so things about Mask of Shadows, which is disappointing because it sounds good and has a great cover. I am looking forward to reading Warcross soon. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!
Have a fabulous week, Suzanne. =)
Check out my STS post!

Yes, I had a mixed reaction to Mask of Shadows too. For the most part I enjoyed it, but I had a few issues. Posting my review for it today. I’m hoping to have much better luck with Warcross since everyone seems to be raving about it.
Hope you have a wonderful week!
Ooo you have Artemis. I will be listening to the audio and cannot wait. It does sound like you ran around like a chicken. So glad you have a little down time this week. I hope you get tickets to see Bruce!!

I’m so excited to have gotten approved for Artemis. I fully expected a rejection since it’s so popular. Can’t wait to read it!
Have a fantastic vacation and best of luck on those Springsteen tickets! Those are going to sell out fast. Fingers crossed!

Thank you! Yeah, I don’t have too much hope of getting those Springsteen tickets so I’ll be ecstatic if it actually happens!
It does sound like a hectic week, I can totally relate. Enjoy your vacation!
Yay for vacation!!! I hope you get all your relaxing and sleeping done!
I can’t wait to see what you made of Girls Made of Snow and Glass – it was a US only galley so I didn’t request it but I read about it in Buzz Books and it looked so good from the synopsis and the excerpt!
Well done for so many twitter followers!!!! That’s awesome!
Hope you’re having an excellent week and I hope to catch up properly soon!

I’m having a very relaxing vacation so far and I loved Girls Made of Snow and Glass. I’m working on my review for it now but it was just a wonderful read.
