Weekly Recap #46: Week of 3/25 – 3/31
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.
Happy Easter to all who are celebrating today! I’m keeping it short and sweet today because my 6-day work weeks have me so behind on everything, both on and off the blog. I need to get caught up on blog comments and on my reviews so that I actually have something to post next week. I’m quite literally counting down the days until our deadline and the freedom that will follow!
I didn’t get much reading done this week, but I did celebrate my 2-year blogoversary. Thanks for all of the blogoversary wishes from those who have already seen my post. There’s a giveaway for a free book so make sure you check that out if you haven’t already. I still can’t believe it has been two years already!
The only other exciting thing that happened was that after nearly a year of trying, I finally managed to score a couple of tickets to Springsteen on Broadway. He extended his show’s run a fourth time and I was finally lucky enough to get one of those elusive verified fan codes and have the opportunity to buy tickets. I won’t be going until October but Springsteen is my favorite musician so I really can’t wait. I’ll also finally be seeing Hamilton that week so needless to say I’m broke, but extra Happy Birthday to me this year!
I think that’s it for me for now. I hope everyone has a wonderful week!

STACKING THE SHELVES
I can totally relate to the 6 day work weeks and counting down the days till it’s over. Happy 2-year blogoversary and cool about Springsteen on Broadway! Oh my gosh, I want to see Hamilton!
Enjoy your week.
I’m so excited for both of the shows. I’ve tried to get tickets for so long. I can’t believe it finally worked out for me. Thanks, you too!
What a nice treat for your birthday! I hope you enjoy both shows when you see them. I see you are planning to read Starry Eyes. It definitely made my favorites shelf. I just adored it. Fingers crossed, you like it too.
I’m reading Starry Eyes now and am really enjoying it 🙂
I’m looking forward to your reviews! Especially the Belles and Dark Matter!c Last week wasn’r great in terms if reading for me either! I Love Springsteen too so hope the show is great! Happy Easter!
Dark Matter was so good! A very trippy read that I devoured in less than 24 hours even with my crazy work schedule, lol.
Yay for the Springsteen tickets! You have some really good books coming up to read this week. I hope you enjoy them. Happy Easter to you and your family.
Woohooooo! Congrats on snagging Springsteen tickets. That’s awesome. I know it’s a long ways away but it will give you something to look forward to. 🙂
Thanks! Yes, just thinking about seeing Springsteen in the fall is giving me life right now, lol.
Happy Easter! And yay for Springsteen on Broadway AND Hamilton! Awesome. 🙂
All three of your books this week are either ones I want to read or am thinking about strongly. So yeah I hope they’re all good. Can’t wait to see your thoughts on Dark Matter and Woman in the Window too.
I really loved both Dark Matter and The Woman in the Window. Flew through them both!
Happy Easter. Congrats on getting tickets to Springsteen and Hamilton! Sounds like you’ll be having a fantastic fall. 🙂
I so want to read Dark Matter. I might just get the Audiobook instead. We shall see. Have a great week reading!
Mary my #SundayRoundup #12!
Dark Matter was awesome!
Happy Blogiversary! I have had Dark Matter for ages. No excuses…just not enough time. Hope you have a great week!
Thanks, you too!
Happy Easter and congratulations on your 2nd year blogoversary, Suzanne. And what wonderful news about the ticket:)). I hope the coming week is a good one.
Thanks! Hope you have a great week too!
Congrats on going to see Springsteen! 🙂
Haha, that random is totally me. I get distracted and never finish anything. Happy blogoversary! Have a great week!
Same here. I found it totally relatable, haha.
Let Me Lie and Starry Eyes looks interesting. I hope you enjoy the concert and Happy Blogoversary to you. Have a wonderful week.
Thanks, hope you have a great week too!
Niiice! Re the Springsteen tickets and Hamilton. That’s what I call a good broke. Beats being broke because…bills.
Good broke..I like that, lol, and I definitely agree with you.
I hope you love Starry Eyes! And congrats on the Broadway tickets! Hamilton is finally coming here next year so I’m anxiously waiting for tickets to be on sale, hoping I can score some!
I’m reading Starry Eyes right now and am really enjoying it so far. I hope that you get lucky with the Hamilton tickets too 🙂
Congratulations with the blogoversary! And you’ve got some great books lined up. Wishing you a great April 🙂
I hope that deadline passes and you have a drink or two! Hamilton sounds like it’ll be a lot of fun, I keep entering the giveaway but I’m not that lucky I guess.
Oh yes, we will have a big office party right after the deadline! 🙂
Dark Matter was awesome – I can’t wait to see your review! 🙂
OMG, it was so good!
Yikes, 6-day work weeks sound rough. But that’s awesome you got the tickets you wanted!!! And I’m sure Hamilton will be fun too. I haven’t seen it, but I’ve heard so much about it!
Thanks, I can’t wait!
Ugh 6 day work weeks suck. Husband works 5 days most weeks plus has one day that he has to go to school. He is so burned out. I hope he’ll get to go to 4 days working for a bit since the school bit is from his job too. I hope your freedom comes soon!
Oh yes, I’m counting down the days. 14 to go!
Springsteen and Hamilton in the same week?! Your October is going to rock… literally. 🙂 I hope you’re enjoying Starry Eyes. I’m reading Alex, Approximately right now and it’s so good. Porter is just the sweetest! 🙂
Right? I’m so stoked. I’ll be counting down the days!
Happy Blogoversary 🙂
I’m looking forward to see what you think of Starry Eyes. I want to read The Anatomical Heart before I read Starry Eye’s. Enjoy your upcoming reads this week and have a wonderful day.
I’ll be reviewing Starry Eyes this week, but I really enjoyed it!
A little late from, but happy blogoversary!
Arrgh. I’m still struggling HARD to catch up. Feeling so far behind with life right now.
Happy two years Suzanne! That’s amazing. And also congrats on the Springsteen tickets!
That totally random is THE BEST. I think I need it as a bookmark! Ha ha.
P.S. YOu seem to be SMASHING your reading goals! Awesome!
