Wow, where is 2014 going?! May is already almost over!  I got to go to a Fierce Reads event this week and it was a blast! Book-wise, this has been a pretty great week as well. I got second and 4th books in series that I love, plus a whole lot of other awesomes 🙂

Books I got this week:

I love the Centaur Redemption series. This is the 4th book, and it is still the ONLY ya/na series that I have found about Centaurs. And then of course, I am THRILLED to get books 1 & 2 in the Mixology series from Alyssa Rose Ivy, because anything she writes is amazing. She is one of my favorite authors.

      Thanks Jenea. 🙂

      I have been trying to limit my review books as much as possible, but I just couldn’t say no to these… ::sigh:: it is the curse of a booklover. It’s so hard to say no to awesome looking books.

    So many good books. I haven’t read any books with centaurs, but yeah, it’s not like there are many out there. Oh I will go check out your post about the event!

      Those are still the only Centaur books that I have heard of. The first one came out years ago. (I think 2011) but still no others have popped up.

      Last week was a slow week for me book wise…and I was so proud of myself and then this week pops up and I completely undid my review book progress. I blame the ARC reading event. I have been doing SO WELL with it that I finally said yes to some new books, and now my progress is dwindling back down again.

    I hope you get to enjoy your weekend with your family a lot!! I noticed you got to similar cover books this week, both with a bottle, I hope they are not as similar as they look by their covers, no one likes reading the same book twice when they are expecting a different one. I’m excited for your shifting fates review, I know you are big Nadia Simonenko fan and actually got me excited to read her books, but this one I wasn’t sure because I’m not a huge fan of shifters, so I’ll wait and see what you thought.
    Have a great week.

      Thanks Valeria,

      I have noticed that a lot of my books lately have been “water” themed. Shades of blue or kind of beachy. I guess it is the season! haha.

      Thanks so much. It has been a nice weekend 🙂

      The shifters book is on the blog today. It was pretty good, and def an interesting and unique take on shifters, but it was a little short for my tastes.
