Summer is in full swing. I am not enjoying this super hot weather, but I have been inside in the air conditions reading a lot each night, so I guess it isn’t too bad.

I have been bitten by the organization bug. So I have been pinning lots of editable to do lists and organization labels.
We will see how long I stick with this, but I am attempting to make a blog to do list, a cleaning to do list and to make an excel sheet of all my books (eek! That intimidates me just thinking about it)

    Organization… I need me some! My basement shelves need serious reorganization (and a bit of pruning, as well.) I need to organize and catalog my ebooks, too. Good luck with your organizing projects; I hope they go well! Also, have fun with COYER (I’m doing it too.)

    • Michelle @ Book Briefs

      I can’t wait for COYER to start 🙂 It’s my first time with it.

      And the organizing is going slowly but steadily. It will probably be a week or two until I tackle my ebooks though.

      that is going to take FOREVER!

    It is funny because I don’t actually love the hot, I like the warm and the sunshine and of course getting to sleep in. But the 90 and 100 degree weather I could really do without. 😉

  3. Stephanie

    Nice haul Michelle. I see several that I would like to read along with several that re new to me, which is nice. Enjoy!

  4. Kathy @ My Nook, Books & More

    You had a list of great reviews! I would like to see the excel sheet you create for your books. I’ve been thinking of doing this for my Netgalley ARCs, so I can plan my reading based on their publication date. Good luck with the organizing and have a great week! Thank you for visiting my blog =)

    • Michelle @ Book Briefs

      Thanks Kathy 😉

      It will probably take me a few weeks to get all of my books and ebooks organized. It scared me to see them all listed out, but I need to keep track of what I have. We will see how that goes…. lol

  5. Shannon @ It Starts At Midnight

    Ohh Evidence of Things Not Seen! I really want to read that one! And I am pretty impressed at your attempt to organize. I am such an organizational fail. I have a calendar sitting right next to my desk, and I forget to write in it. I have another next to my bed, same thing. I have apps on my phone, on my Kindle.. nope and nope. Hope you are able to keep up with it, and enjoy all the new books!

    • Michelle @ Book Briefs

      Oh, don’t be jealous yet. I am fabulous at making to-do lists. But following through with them and actually staying on track is another thing.

      I found some really cool free, editable printables and I have been using them this week, so we will see if I actually stick to my new schedule.

  6. Katherine @ I Wish I Lived in a Library

    Good luck with the organization bug! I have a calender for blog stuff and an excel spreadsheet for review books but have yet to figure out a way to organize my TBR. I’m trying out LibraryThing but we’ll have to see. Have a great week! Looks like you got some great books!

    • Michelle @ Book Briefs

      I have a calendar for my blog posts as well, but things like responding to comments, visiting new blogs, updating goodreads, my review archives, netgalley, etc. were becoming overwhelming so I have started scheduling them for different days as well.

      Tackling making an actual TBR list will be a huge project in and of itself but I hope to start it in a week or two 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by

  7. Red Iza

    I can relate, the weather’s been super hot here too these last few days. We must be soul mates in a certain way, the organization bug bit me too and my Excel sheet is now complete, one list is made and the other is on its way lol 🙂 Burnouts, geeks and Jesus freaks look funny. Have a great week !

    • Michelle @ Book Briefs

      I am super jealous your excel sheet is complete. I need to do mine still. I am aiming to have it done in two weeks.

      Yea, burnouts does look funny. I am reading that later this week 🙂

  8. Margie aka The Bumble Girl

    Lots of interesting covers here! Normal is the Watchword sounds really intriguing, I love when a contemporary has a paranormal twist to it! Evidence of Things Not Seen sounds like a good one too, and such a cool cover!
    Looks like you have a great week ahead too! Enjoy your new reads 🙂

  9. Dre @ Sporadic Reads

    The cover of “Everything’s Fine” is the same as “I Love You to Death” by Natalie Ward, I thought it was part of the series. And thanks for the free ebook links on Amazon 😀

  10. Ginny @ Gin's Book Notes

    Awesome week planned. Looking forward to seeing how you liked Centaur Redemption!

    Great goals for Coyer. I signed up and posted my goal post but I need to go through and reorganize my books. 🙂

    I am off to check out your Pinterest boards. I’ve been bitten by that same bug. 🙂

    Have a great week and happy reading and organizing. 😉

  11. Heidi

    You have been a busy bee. It is funny how I live for summer to read outside while you have to head indoors, however I used to live in PHX so I know about heat. I will have to remember to watch your tweets for freebies! Have a wonderful week!

  12. Nicole Hewitt

    I’m intrigued by Everything’s Fine (based on that cover, it’s obviously not). Looks like you had a busy week over here. I’m heading over now to check out a few of the posts I missed!

  13. tonyalee

    Quite a few of your books this week are new to me, so obviously, I must check them out!

    Hopefully, when I am back to my normal schedule, I can do some organizing and cleaning! With the blog and home haha

    Have a good week!

  14. Michelle@Because Reading

    I tend to spend a lot of time in the Air conditioning in the summer 🙂 I hate the heat.

    You have some great reads this week!

    So happy you are joining us for COYER it will be a lot of fun! Good Luck on your goal!!! I still have to make the list of books to go with the list I already made 🙂

  15. Rachel @ Paper Cuts

    I’m so curious about Evidence of Things Unseen! I love the cover and like the concept, but decided not to request it just because of my TBR. But if people are loving it, I’ll have to change my mind. 🙂 Love the cover for Normal is the Watchword! I’m off to check that one out! Have a great week!
