Week in READ-view is a post I have posted on Sundays telling you what I have been up to this week and what I read or am reading. The Sunday Post is a meme sponsored by the awesome Kimba at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
Real Life & Blog News:
I was kind of missing this week since we had a bit of a family crisis with my son that needed my attention but things have settled down now and I am hoping for a better week coming up. My Son and I have a lot of bumps in the road to still get through but we will work together and get through it again, it just might take some time. Was able to visit a few people this week but if I missed you I am sorry I am working on getting better at that also if I haven’t responded to a comment you left me I will also be working on that this week 🙂
This weekend is Bloggiesta and I did a bunch of stuff on Friday a day early since I figured I can get a jump on it. I did a LOT of organizing with a spreadsheet I made and cleaned up my goodreads shelves. I still have some stuff to do but I had to take a break on Saturday to clean my daughters room which I now call the gates of hell. I never thought that this would take me 12 hours. At one point I wanted to cry it was such a disaster. Let me show you 🙂 Lol
Tomorrow I will continue with Bloggiesta and try to get a few more things done since I am so behind.
I did get a very awesome email…last week I read The Diamond Thief by Sharon Gosling and the publishing company Switch Press (Capstone Publishing) contacted me and asking if I would be interested in reading the next one in the series because I was tweeting about this one and they are the same publishing company that is publishing the book Lois Lane: Fallout that I got last week. The Publicist said that she would be happy to send me The Ruby Airship by Sharon Gosling and will even send me a finished copy of Lois Lane if they have any left. I was so excited, of course I said yes. This made me take a chance and send an email to Houghton Mifflin Harcourt to see if I can get a copy of a book they are publishing that I want to read. *whispers* see my books I got this week 😉 I was so excited!!! This once again was a good end to a somewhat crappy week.
