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.
I am a bit late writing this post, so I am hoping it wont be riddled with more errors than usual. It’s odd that I am so late with it since I have had a very quite week and weekend just a lot of real life stress but I managed to finish one book, read another and start a new one.
I am participating in Bout of Books this week and I’m not sure I am doing it the right way. I have seen others update during the week of progress and stuff but I didn’t know you were suppose to do that and I didn’t but this is my first Read-a-thon so I will get it eventually. I also missed TWO twitter parties one for Bout of Books and one for Clean Sweep ARC Challenge (made it at the end) I am so bummed I missed it. Trying so hard to chat with fellow bloggers but I always seem to never know just how to do that. It’s nice to have a bunch of blogger friends to chat books with just need to get some 🙂 because I think I might be driving Kim (Berls) crazy 😉
Speaking of Kim, She and I have let COYER go on Summer Vacation and OMG I can’t wait for you all to see what we have planned, If you love participating in COYER you are going to love it on vacation. Check back on here or on Kims (Berls) blog Fantasy is More fun, Wednesday May 21st for all the super fun details.
June the return of My T0-Be Read List I can’t wait to share it, I have worked out most of the details just have to know write it all down. I think I might include a giveaway in it also once a month…shhhh I can’t say no more you will see the first Saturday in June (date subject to change)

I am now reading With Every Breath (Sea Swept #2) by Valerie Chase I am hoping to be done with this to add to Bout of Books.
I am Listening to Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi I’m not liking it at the moment
I am reading next The Kiss of Deception
Books I got this week
Edelwiess for Review from Spencer Hill
For Review ~ Thank You H.B. Bolton
If you haven’t been on Amazon in the last couple of days you might want to a LOT of box sets are on sale or at least they were. A bunch of freebies and .99. I didn’t have time to scope them all out and I might be to late to look at anymore but it’s worth a peek if you have time. This was all I was able to get but I plan to go back and see what other ones I want.
What else is going on?
Just a lot of stress, things are about to change and I will be able to talk about it in June (or next post, it depends). We originally thought things would work but we hit a snag and it was what I was worried about but I have been putting on a happy face and move through the days with as much positivity as I can but I am starting to lose hope. If it wasn’t for this blog and reading I would be a complete mess. Please don’t think I am looking for sympathy because I am not, I am the type of person that takes each day as it comes and just hopes for the best and if it doesn’t work out today there is always tomorrow to try again. I also realize it could be a lot worse and there are people in this world that are worse off than me. So like always I will take it day-to-day and just make the best of what we have and what life throws at us. I am ALWAYS up for a challenge 🙂
I FINALLY went to the ENT and I have Chronic Sinusitis and a bunch of Polyps in my nose/sinus. So I am on some steroids and antibiotics to see if they will go away and in 3 weeks I need a CT Scan to see what else is going on. Will the FUN EVER END!!! and the worst part of these meds is I wont be able to drink on my BIRTHDAY!!! The steroids I have to be on for two weeks and my birthday is the 28th of May so no celebrating my Mile stone birthday (I will be 40) with couple drinks, but on May 31st I will be drinking an entire bottle of wine to make up for it 🙂
This weekend is Memorial weekend and I will be away the entire weekend for my husbands birthday (25th) and we have a BBQ on Sunday for Mine and his Birthdays/Memorial Day. So I might not have a post up until the next weekend which I will have tons to tell you since I will be going to BEA on the 30th. I am still so bummed I didn’t do the entire week but I am doing it next year for sure. So if you are going to be there on Friday the 30th let me know maybe we can meet up to say hello 🙂
So tell me what have you been reading and up to this week?
Hope you all have a fantastic week!!!
