Weekly Recap #8: Week of 7/2 – 7/8

 

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.

I hope everyone who was celebrating had a happy and safe 4th of July holiday.  My husband and I let our son dictate the festivities and ended up hosting the neighborhood kids in his age group for smores and a few fireworks.  It was great fun and the kids even helped with clean up, so that part was even better!

This weekend my husband and I are celebrating our 18th wedding anniverary, which doesn’t even seem possible.  I’ve almost reached that point in life where I’ve been with him for more years than I’ve been without him.

It was a pretty busy week for the blog too.  I managed to get those writing days I was hoping for and am now all caught up on my book reviews (well, for the moment anyway!).  Right now I’m in the process of writing a discussion post for later this week and am starting to read some of the books on my TBR for the summer reading challenge I’m participating in.  Up first is A Court of Wings and Ruin, followed by Strange the Dreamer.

I also had my first DNF in a while this week.  I just couldn’t connect with the characters in Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney. I found them abrasive and annoying so I ended up ditching that book.  I’ve had a run of great reads though, so I guess I was due for a DNF.  Hopefully that won’t be the start of a run of bad books.  Fingers crossed!

Well, that’s pretty much it for me.  Have a great week, everyone!

Weekly Recap # 7: Week of 6/25-7/1

 

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.

Happy 4th of July weekend to all who are celebrating!  I’m actually headed out of town today to attend a 4th of July bash at my aunt and uncle’s house.  It looks like we’re in store for some nice weather so I’m looking forward to spending some quality time outdoors, catching some rays and reading some of the July ARCs that have snuck up on me.  I had to backburner Heather Graham’s Perfect Obsession, which I had been planning to read this weekend, because I received an ARC for Final Girls, which comes out on July 11th so I really need to get that read first.  I started it today and it took me a while to really get into it, but now I’m flying through it and hope to finish it by tonight.  Then I need to read Conversations with Friends and The Library of Fates, which also have upcoming publication dates.

I’ve gotten a little behind on writing reviews, so I’m hoping that having a couple of extra days off this week will allow me to make some progress on that front.  Adjusting my schedule so that I get in my 40 hours at work and can still be off by noon on Fridays is taking some getting used to, and so several of my planned writing sessions this past week turned into impromptu naps instead.

I’m especially excited about the upcoming week because I’ll be posting my very first author interview!  Yay for a blogging milestone!  I’ll be posting that tomorrow, along with a giveaway to celebrate my milestone, so be sure to stop by and check it out. 🙂

Well, that’s pretty much it for me.  Have a great week, everyone!
