Weekly Recap #54: Week of 5/20 – 5/26
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.
It was another pretty quiet week for me, a little boring, but after all of the deadlines, etc. that I dealt with up through the end of April, I’ll gladly take a few quiet weeks to recharge my batteries. I’m also really looking forward to our long holiday weekend. They’re calling for rain everyday but oh well, if it rains, that just means I’ll have 3 days to relax and get some reading and blogging done indoors.
Reading wise, I finished a few books this past week but with the exception of Legendary, most of them were not books I had originally planned to read. Mood reading and poor planning strikes again! I had misplaced my planner for a few weeks and forgot that I had two blog tours scheduled for the end of May so I had to set aside my planned reading and dive into LikeL1k3 and Baby Teeth asap. LikeL1k3 was great and there are several giveaways for that book on my blog tour post so be sure to check that out if you haven’t already.
I think that’s about it for me. Like I said, quiet, boring week. I hope everyone else has a great week! 🙂

WHAT I’M READING THIS WEEK
STACKING THE SHELVES
I hadn’t heard of it until a couple of weeks ago so it’s definitely not just you.
Quiet weeks are good!!! All this GDPR stuff is making my head spin lol. Hopefully I will get it close enough. Can’t wait to hear what you think of the new Ruth Ware. Have a great week!
Right? I love a quiet week, lol.
I have started Furyborn and hope to finish it soon but I can’t be certain. I hope you have a great week!
Mary my #Sunday Roundup #20!
Thanks, you too!
The GDPR stuff is SO very annoying, I agree. I have no idea if I did enough, but I’ve given up on it for now.
Same here. I’m hoping at this point that if I’ve made some glaring error with it that someone will kindly point it out because I just can’t deal with it anymore right now.
My new personal policy is to read my tour books right after I get my date. I like to have them out of the way, because knowing me, I will forget about them. I am sort of exhausted by all the GDPR stuff. I didn’t have to do anything myself, but the notifications and all the new checkboxes are making me batty.
I really need to adopt that policy too. It would make my life so much easier, lol.
Enjoy your 3 day weekend. It’s rainy today here also but being home is nice. Happy reading, Hunting Prince Dracula looks especially good.
Thanks, I hope you enjoyed your weekend too.
I’m looking forward to those upcoming reviews, those are all considerations on my to be read list!
Thanks. If you read them, I Hope you enjoy them.
I gave up on the GDPR stuff, too. Hopefully I’m covered. I’ll have to look for your Far From The Tree review. I have that book sitting on my TBR shelf. I hope you have a good week!
I’m really enjoying Far from the Tree so far. I’m hoping to finish it tomorrow.
Reading your About Me, you are definitely my kind of person. You have some great looking new reads there. It is supposed to rain here all this week. But especially tomorrow, all day. Usually, it just rains for a few hours. I’m happy to stay home and read and work on the blog. I had problems with my bed this month. I tried something new today and we will see. Just when I think I’ll have more time to read, other life stuff gets in the way.
We had so much rain over the holiday weekend. I ended up relaxing indoors and reading for most of it, which was okay by me since I’m life will be busy again this week and like you say, in the way of that precious reading time, lol.
Oh gosh, the GDPR stuff is so annoying. I THINK I have everything I need, but I don’t know…I hope so! Sometimes a boring week is good. I’ve been pretty busy this weekend – fun stuff, but I also need to spend some time actually blogging. LOL I’m getting behind again.
I just read about your weekend. It sounded wonderful!
I like quiet boring weeks. 🙂 And glad to hear Lifelik3 was good! I was wondering about that one a bit…
Hope your Memorial Day weekend is nice. It’s been hot here the last two days (90’s) so summer has definitely arrived! \
I keep forgetting Ruth Ware has a new one out. And LEgendary reminds me I still need to get to Caraval…
It has been a rainy holiday weekend but I relaxed a lot and got a ton of reading done, so it was all-in-all a good weekend 🙂
oooh, Suzanne, Baby Teeth! I read that blurb and it gave me the SHIVERS — which is why I’m grateful you’re diving in!
Baby Teeth is so creepy! I was reading it in bed last night and had to stop because I was afraid I’d have nightmares, lol.
I read Furyborn last week and really enjoyed it! I listened to part of it, and the audio was really good.
I’m so jealous that you’ve already read Legendary! I am working half day so I can go to the bookstore, get my copy, and go home and read!
Legendary was a great read for me. I actually really preferred it to Caraval. I hope you love it too!
Have a happy long weekend, Suzanne! Those are the best times to relax and have some time to yourself. 🙂 I hope you enjoy Furyborn more than I did; and I can’t wait to see your review for Far From the Tree!
– Aimee @ Aimee, Always
Thank you! I was a lazy slug all weekend and I thoroughly enjoyed it 🙂
The GDPR is so confusing. I am really hoping they aren’t concerned with personal bloggers because I’m sure my policy is not up to par with what they want.
I can’t wait to read your review on Hunting Prince Dracula. It sounds so good.
Hunting Prince Dracula was really good! I can’t wait to get my hands on the third book in the series now.
That whole GDPR thing has been driving me crazy…
Sounds like you’ve been a bit crazy lately! I HEAR YOU! This year has been incredibly manic for me. But that’s cool… GDPR. Yeah. I’m kind of done with it now too. Fingers crossed!!! Ha ha.
FURYBORN! I hope it’s awesome. I’ve been meaning to get to it and hopefully I will next month. Can’t wait to see what you thought of Legendary and also I really want to read that Maniscalco series!
Other than that, hope things have been well your side and hopefully I can stay in touch instead of falling off of the face of the earth!
Right? I’m the same way on GDPR. Hopefully we’re all good on it. I keep pushing Furyborn back but am determined to start it as soon as I finish the Ruth Ware book I just started tonight.
I did the bare minimum for GDPR and now I’m just hoping for the best. Haha.
Haha! Hopefully we’ve all done whatever we needed to do. It was almost impossible to know for sure.
