Week in READ-view is a post I have posted on Sundays tell 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.
Now that my calendar is pretty much complete, I started setting up posts in advance so I am a bit ahead I am very excited. I haven’t been posting reviews lately, well at least since COYER and the reason for that is because I am trying to have a few so I can get ahead, does that make sense? I always seem to post a review after I read the book but since I don’t read that fast I barely post reviews so I figured if I hold off a bit I can post at least or set up a few reviews in the next couple of weeks and catch up with my reading….does this make sense at all, lol. I feel as a review blog I just don’t have enough reviews and unless I make my family move out so I can live alone and read, I thought by holding off on posting reviews I can gather a bunch a post then throughout the month post them and any other review I write I will be ahead….I’m giving up on this explanation now and pray that you all understand what I am talking about and not think I have gone completely mental..er than I am already 😉

I also have 2 reviews that might go up this week just not sure where I am going to put them 🙂
Books I read/currently reading
I killed this week on reads
I finished The Looking Glass by Jessica Arnold. I will have the review for this up with the tour
I am currently reading a book I got the chills from when I read the synopsis and so far it's turning out to be so much more then I expected and I am only 20% done. LOVING it.
Next I plan to read
I just got asked to read the second in the series so I am going to read this series next.
Books I received, downloaded and added.
I am totally not capable of controlling myself. I need adult supervision when I am on Netgalley, Edelweiss and Amazon.....I am also not allowed to go to Barnes & Nobles alone. With that being said this is what I got this week 😉
What else is going on?
Ok so I was a bit frustrated with BEA this year and I finally got it all straightened out but I am still am a bit annoyed. My sister and I went last year to power reader day on Saturday since I couldn't do the whole week because of work and I wanted to do Saturday again this year. Next year is the last year in NY and I plan to do the entire week even if I have to go alone since I don't know if they will be coming back to NY. So I got a ticket for my sister and me for Saturday's Power Reader day and you get access to the entire trade floor, pretty cool....Then they changed it without warning or giving anyone the option to cancel or switch days. Saturday's BEA event is now Book Con and you only have access to half the show and if a publishing company doesn't want to be part of the Book Con and only the Trade part I wont have access unless I buy a weeks pass or switch my day to Thursday/Friday. I tried to go Friday and Saturday but they wont let you it's either one day or all week (which is stupid, I think they would sell more tickets if it was done like that). Since going to Book Con and getting access to half the event wont benefit me at all I had to switch the day to Friday so I can be part of the trade show. I don't mind but I have to now find someone to get my kids after school and my sister had to take off of work PLUS it's $45 dollars more then on Saturday. So I am happy I will be going just a little annoyed the purchase didn't go as smoothly.
The family went to see the Easter Bunny on Saturday at the Rainforest Cafe. I love the Rainforest Cafe we go to see Santa and the Easter bunny there and the kids love it but wow do they have crappy breakfast but we had fun 🙂
Today we are going to celebrate Easter with my Parents since they will be in Florida for Easter on Vacation, the week they have at their condo falls Easter week and My Mom couldn't switch it so we are celebrating with them today and next week on Easter it will be at my house with My husbands family. Sometimes the Easter Bunny thinks
she's he's Santa and brings to much stuff, which is probably why my kids love Easter so much. I The Easter bunny just can't help her himself 😉
So tell me what have you been reading and up to this week?
Hope you all have a fantastic week!!!
