I screamed with delight ~ WIR & TSP

Posted January 11, 2015 by Michelle in WIReadview / 30 Comments

WIR vectorstock_43821-1-1Week 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:

Last year I saw this book that pretty much had me at “look at my pretty cover” and I have been hooked ever since. How can I pass up a story about Lois Lane before meeting Clark, a YA that screams for me to read it. I have been stalking Netgalley and the Switch Press website just looking at this book, I have read the synopsis a million times and I was very close to sending Capstone Publishing an email (I have never emailed a publisher) to see if I can get an advanced copy but I chickened out. Well I saw on the website that it they had a giveaway for advanced copies and just for the hell of it I thought why not…LOOK WHAT CAME IN THE MAIL ON SATURDAY!!!

IMG_2733I SCREAMED with delight and was pretty much in complete shock! I have to now reorganize my reads because I am not sure I can wait to read this book! I am praying that I’m not disappointed and that my usual instincts of knowing a great book just by looking at it (it’s like a super power and it’s weird) aren’t wrong. This week was HORSESHIT and I can’t even explain how this totally made up for it.

And yes this was a really shitty week, a lot of things with my son, this is another bump in the road for us, however, this bump is HUGE but like always we will take it one day at a time and we will get through it…together.

Because of everything that has gone on I am again behind on my bloggy stuff but I got a bunch of stuff done of Friday and plan to be a very productive girl today with setting up posts and visiting all my favorite blogs. I am hoping to be a bit ahead so I can concentrate on Bloggiesta next weekend, fingers crossed this week is a lot better.

  3. I’m so sorry you had such a rough week! I hope things smooth out soon. You will get through it (whatever it is), but it can be hard while you’re going through a bad patch, I know. I’ll keep you in prayers! And how lovely to get such a great pick-me-up in the mail.
    BTW, love how clean and streamlined your blog looks!

    • I’ll be able to explain soon, just a lot going on that I hope will calm down enough for me to tell whats going on. It was a wonderful mail surprise totally needed it 🙂

      Thank you! When I wanted to change the blog around I never imagined making it look like this but it just kind of happened and I LOVE it. So happy with it all. Took me forever and I am still adjusting every so often but I am over the moon that it came out so clean and simple. It’s perfect 🙂

  5. Yay on the book! How great to get an ARC for a book you’re really excited about. And in print! So sorry that you’ve hit a bump in the road with your son but it sounds like your attitude is right for whatever challenge you may face. Hope this coming week is better for you!

  7. Sorry to hear your week was horrible *hugs*. Yay for winning an ARC like that, I don’t think I ever got a physical ARC so I can imagine how exciting that must be, I hope you’ll enjoy it! I hope next week is better!
