Jun 242012

I’ve had a very reading filled week. I finished 5 books this week, which felt really good. I am way behind in writing reviews and author features, but that seems to be pretty standard.

I think I’m finally back into the regular routine of being at home and going to work and everything “normal”. I have been having a really hard time since coming back from vacation. Every day feels like a struggle where I am forcing myself to go to a job that I don’t like. And that is never fun.

Summer seems to be here in full swing. The temperature has been soaring all week, and my apartment is cooking hot. My son is a regular sweat factory, but still wants to snuggle up with you, which feels really gross and hot. But still nice when he’s giving hugs and kisses, even while cooking me.

Books received:

Don’t Call Me Angel (Forsaken #1) by Alicia Wright Brewster
The Assignment by Geraldine Solon

I received a bag of books unexpectedly from Free Press, an imprint of Simon and Schuster. In it were the following books:

The Longest Way Home by Andrew McCarthy
Shelter: A Novel by Frances Greenslade
The Book of Mormrn Girl by Joanna Brooks

Y: A Novel by Marjorie Celona
Some Kind of Peace by Camilla Grebe and Asa Traff

I also received an unexpected package from Penguin Canada with the following books:

Pyg: Memoirs of a Learned Pig by Russell Potter
Y: A Novel by Marjorie Celona

Yes, I did get the same book from two different publishers in the same week. Obviously someone really wants me to read this book.

I had several giveaways end this week, so there are a few winners to announce. Apparently I had a few problems with giveaways ending early, and for that I apologize. I’m still trying to figure Rafflecopter out. I think I have it figured out for next time though.

Indie Author Giveaway Hop – $10 from Smashwords – Tiffany R
“Clear Your Shelf” Giveaway Hop – Box of Books – Brooke D

  1. Y: A Nolel looks interesting, I prefer the second cover though. Enjoy.

    Here is my weekly round up/book haul post
    Lauren from Northern Plunder

  2. That's so random about getting Y twice, but the book looks awesome so hopefully you enjoy it! I prefer the first cover also. I've heard nice things about Shelter too. Happy reading!

    And I know the feeling, I'm pretty sure I'm always behind on book reviews, and everything else in life :p

  3. Sounds like you got some great books. Happy reading!

  4. Interesting books this week. I really like the sounds of the ones from Free Press. And that's funny you got two of the same book in one week. Like Captian Biscults, I like the second cover. Happy reading, and happy snuggles with the little one 🙂
