Hey guys! How has your week been?
Mine has been HECTIC! I have been so busy. I haven’t had much time to do much more online than get my reviews up. I am so behind in my commenting and blog visiting, and it makes me sad. I will be trying to make some of the rounds later today, and hopefully I will be better this week.
I have just been dead tired in the mornings and at night. Between work, looking for a new job, looking for apartments, reading, and random things that keep popping up, I have been pulled in a million different directions and I just want to catch my breath.
The 4th of july weekend has been nice because I have been able to just slow down and relax for a few days. It is back to the grind tomorrow, but this weekend has been nice. I am holding on to that. haha
In good news, it has been a truly EPIC week in books. I had two awesome prize packs that I won come in the mail, plus lots of awesome books for review and amazon freebies!

Books I got this week:

  1. Bea @Bea's Book Nook

    You’re doing well with COYER. You did get a lot of fantastic books and prizes! I hope you enjoy the rest of your break before the madness starts up again.

  2. Michelle@Because Reading

    Congrats again on the Tote Bag, I hope it’s super cute in Real Life 🙂

    I think everyone is having problems stopping by blogs lately, I have been trying to set aside time to do that just can’t seem to catch up. Sometimes I read blogs but don’t comment. I think we will figure it out soon…I hope Lol

    You are doing great with COYER! I am hoping to really pick up the pace in the next couple of days since I am trying to get ahead on all my posts.

    Have a great week Michelle and Happy Reading!!!

  3. Jenna @ Rather Be Reading YA

    I’m trying (TRYING!) not to download so many free ebooks because I never seem to get around to reading them. Some of the ones you linked look good, though, so I guess I’ll be going to see if they’re still free.

  4. Greg

    Sounds like you are very busy, glad you got a little break with the holiday weekend. You seem to be doing well with COYER, I fell a little behind this week but hope to catch up soon. 🙂 Looks like a pretty awesome haul of books…

  5. Lisa @ Lost in Literature

    I’m reading This Summer right now, and it’s pretty cute. I totally fell in love with the summery cover. 🙂 Lots of great books this week!! I hope you enjoy! I’m excited to read your Alyssa Rose Ivy reviews. I read one book by her, and really enjoyed it. I’m eager to read more! 🙂

    • Michelle @ Book Briefs

      Yea, I really like all of Alyssa’s books. I think I have read 7 by her now. She is consistently good 🙂 I have shaken not stirred and on the roaks reviews by her coming up this week 🙂

  6. Cyn @ Book Munchies

    Despite the busy week, looks like you still got out a lot of posts! Yay for prizes all showing up in the mail! Awesome book haul this week. I can’t wait to read Kiss of Deception, glad to hear you loved it! Have an awesome week (:

  8. Farzy

    The Soul of the Witch’s cover is sooo gorgeous! 😀
    I’m definitely checking out the Kindle freebies but I think the links are broken, I tried clicking on the “Aftermath” cover but it lead to the Ephemeral link.

  9. tonyalee

    wow you did good this week in books! it’s been awhile since I have browsed the freebies, so I will be waiting on your tweets!

    • Michelle @ Book Briefs

      The freebies are both a blessing and a curse! I started out keeping track of them to tweet out for my blog, but it ended up with me grabbing too many of them for myself haha

  10. Rachel @ Paper Cuts

    Woah, that really is a lot!! I don’t know that I’m familiar with any of the books you got, but I see a few I need to look into. 🙂 Glad to hear you got to rest this weekend, and I hope this week is better for you!
