Week in READ-view is a post I have posted every Sunday telling what have I been up to during the week and I thought it would be great to link it with The Sunday Post….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.
Oh well I think I might be in a slump. I can’t find the motivation to read or blog like I was. So I have taken the weekend off to just try and organize some stuff, I fixed up my blogger book since I am old fashioned and feel better writing things down but I also use iCal on my iPad. I am happy to say I am feeling a lot better. I think taking sometime every now and again is like a reboot. I had some ideas in my head I was able to write down and I didn’t feel so rushed about what I needed or wanted to do. I am totally lacking original content so I have a chance in the next couple of days to come up with some stuff. I am working on my confidence this year so the “original” stuff I have been holding back on because I am scared people will think it’s stupid. At this age I thought I would be over this but apparently I am not. I think the next step in getting over it is just to make a post or two and see what happens. I’m still a nervous wreck lol
So I really didn’t read as much as I wanted to this week 🙁
but I did add a bunch of books to my kindle thanks to Amazon and the free books
but first this is what happened….

I finished reading Her Mad Hatter by Maria Hall
Berls @Fantasy is more fun & Reanna @ Phantasmic Reads and I are doing a new feature called “Was it good for you?” Pretty much the three of us read the same books then come together to chat about what we thought. We are hoping to do this once a month. Three different opinions on one book… I can’t wait to see what we all think. I have very strong opinions on this book. Stay tuned for this later this month 🙂
This months reads are from my actual bookshelf, I wanted to try and get to a few of them before COYER starts next month then it’s all Netgalley and Edelweiss reads 🙂
So….I was going to read The Fault in Our Stars but I chickened out and Just started an ARC of Sing Sweet Nightingale by Erica Cameron
Next I might read The Fault in Our Stars (maybe)
or The Forbidden Library by Django Wexler
I also was on edelweiss even though I promised myself not to… Since they are on my bookshelf I planned to read to read the first two (House of Secrets & The School of Good and Evil) this month. When I saw book two for both of them I squealed with delight and downloaded them immediately…. Thank you Harper Collins 🙂
These are the books I downloaded from Amazon
I also received this for review, I am so excited about it since it has been a book I have wanted to read for a while now and I am so honored she asked me to read it for her.
What else is going on?
Lots of friggin snow and a nasty ice storm. NJ has been a hoot the last two months lol. If I keep taking days off I will never no vacation time in the summer and by the time all the snow finally melts I’m going to need a canoe.
This weekend we are celebrating my little mans 9th birthday we got him the Xbox 360 so he can play minecraft and a few other games. He is super excited and that makes me very happy. We went to the Rainforest Cafe on Saturday and now tonight it’s his pick for dinner and of course he wants Pizza. I am also going to make him a cake, If I can I will post the picture If it’s not done before this post is live I will post it next month. It will look like the minecraft cake that you can make in the game. I hope he loves it 🙂
