Week in READview:

Real life:

It snowed this week and we are getting another 6 inches tonight…Is it spring yet? Otherwise things have been pretty good, nothing major to report. Yay! 🙂

Blogging & Reading:

I found out on Friday that Blog Ahead started on Friday, I totally missed the sign up post so I plan to participate but I am going to jump in next Friday. Since I am at the moment still about a week ahead I should be able to finish out this month and start April with a few posts I have wanted to do. I also have to prepare the blog for when I will be away. Berls will hopefully be back soon (if she didn’t do a post today) Our schedule is perfect, I just now need to find time to visit like I want too, some weeks are better than others and sometimes it just doesn’t happen at all.

I am apparently unable to contain myself from grabbing books because once again I grabbed I few more than I intended.

COYER is officially over. COYER Summer will be here before you even realize and I think we will be going on a Treasure Hunt! 😉

My first Afternoon Tea posted this week and I loved doing it. I got a few more teas and I plan to try and do one once a month. It goes live in the afternoon and if you are a tea drinker I have found some really yummy teas, my be worth checking out! 🙂

My TBR List went live yesterday, if you have a moment stop by to help me pick a book I will read this month, it would be greatly appreciated. The selections are all MG Books. 🙂

What I am watching:

I was able to finish Bates Motel last weekend and have once again returned to binge watching Bones. I am hoping to do a binge watchers club post in a few weeks and figure out what to watch next…I am thinking Gotham.

What I am playing:

Star Stable had the last update to a story quest that has been going on for a few years now. It was so emotional and I was able to finish it all in two days. I am looking forward to seeing what quests they come out with next. Now I have about 25 horses to train and get to level 15.

(Read, Currently Reading & Next)

I had a hard time with Immortal Plunder, I found the MC very immature and it just wasn’t grabbing my attention. The cover is stunning but I don’t think it was what I was expecting.

I just couldn’t wait to dive into Warrior of the Wild, I am hoping to be finished with it today.

What I grabbed:

For THREE days I debated if I wanted the Physical, Ebook or Audio of The Priory of the Orange Tree. It is a 838 page book so I knew it would be huge as physical. However the price was at least $12 cheaper in Ebook so I grabbed that however, I might also use an audio credit since I love the girl who reads it’s voice and also might want to have moments of listening when I can’t read it but I am still trying to decided if I want to do that or not.

Grim Lovelies I wanted for a while so it was on sale this week on Amazon for 2.99 ebook, so I grabbed it. Tara West is Keepers of the Stones series I one I have been wanted to read for a while and it was FREE so I grabbed it! 🙂

Warrior of the Wild is one of my most anticipated and I had preordered that and got it on release day. I have already dived into it because I COULDN’T WAIT!

  1. I am curious about Warrior of the Wind! 🙂 You sure are racking up more books than me this year! Though I might have some for next Sunday to show off. 😉 That seems to be the theme, one week nothing the next week everything! 🙂

    Have a great week!

  2. Warrior of the Wild looks awesome. I need to get that one. And Priory looks amazing too. 838 pages- wow!

    I need to work on getting ahead too. I was for a while but I’ve been slacking lately. 🙂

    Hope you don’t get hit with snow too bad… have an awesome week!

  3. I hope you are staying safe and warm! I need to find time to get ahead on my blog, but it definitely won’t be this week. There is just too much going on. I understand not being able to resist bringing in more books. I’m guilty of that too, especially lately. I hope you are loving Warrior of the Wild. It sounds so good. The Priory of the Orange Tree is one I want to read too. I hope you enjoy all your new books! I hope you have a great week, Michelle!

  4. Its snowing here today and this week is suppose to be really cold. Unless it gets me off work, I’m not amused!! Sigh. Oh well, I am sure that we will be complaining about the heat and humidity in no time!
    have a good week!

  5. I always feel that Coyer comes at the most busy times in my life and I can’t participate as much as I wanted. I didn’t even realize that it had ended. Will have to count and see how many books I read in total. I think i forgot to link up everything.

    We just finished watching The Gifted Season 2, it wasn’t as good as we hoped. It’s a decent series, but the pacing was too slow in this season. Sounds like you’re enjoying your binge read of Bones.

    I am sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy Immortal Plunder, the MC is pretty immature and naive at first, I think the author did that on purpose as she really grows and changed a lot throughout the series so far.

    I also have troubling with grabbing too many books at times. I’ve been buying quite a few books lately. The Priory of the Orange Tree looks interesting. It’s so hard to decide what format to get a book in at times. I hope you have a great week!

  6. We’re doing Blog Ahead, too. Shari needs us to get ahead on posts for her vacation, too. Yay for a nice book haul. Yes, your pirate book does have a gorgeous cover. Too bad about the heroine.

    Have a good week, Michelle!

  7. It’s nice she is doing the Blog Ahead as weekly with a choice of how many weeks, it will fit for you just fine. I’m just practicing the skills not signing up this go round. I want all the books right now so I get you on that! Have a good week, hopefully with some sun even if the temps are cold!

    • I do like the idea of it being weekly. I hope she keeps it like this. I find it easier to follow.
      This year has some great releases and I can’t contain myself. Lol
      I hope for sun also but this week is going to be very cold.

  8. I’ve heard so many good things about The Priory of the Orange Tree! I’m planning to buy it myself, but I really need to finish others that I’ve started reading already 😉 Happy Sunday!
