    You are doing great with COYER! You guys are totally blowing me away Lol.
    It really is nice to be ahead. I ahead on posts and some reviews I am getting very happy about it and it makes it so much easier to read and come up with original content 🙂

    You have an overflow of new books!!! Good for you!!! 🙂 Enjoy them all

    Have a great week, Michelle!

  2. Jenna @ Rather Be Reading YA

    A review cushion is so nice to have. What I do is get ahead then stop writing reviews or posts of any kind and my cushion disappears. Don’t let this happen to you! 😀

    I’ll be watching for your review of Crossing the Ice. I love figure skating and looked into that author’s books during the Olympics this year, but then I never got around to actually reading them. I still want to though. I’m adding Game Changer to my TBR too.

    Wow you got a lot of great books this week, look at them all! Kind of like Christmas. 😉

    I love the review )blog post) cushion! I think when I start to get low is when I start to get uneasy and panic. I hate only have a couple of posts prescheduled.I like to be at least two weeks ahead, it makes me feel better for some reason.

  4. Katherine @ I Wish I Lived in a Library

    Congratulations on getting your review cushion! I want to develop one but it seems like as soon as I do life gets in the way and I end up not consistently adding to it which means bye bye cushion! Great books this week! Hope you enjoy them and have a great week!

    Gates of Thread and Stone looks interesting. Wahoo for that review cushion, it really makes blogging, reviewing, socializing, life and reading more enjoyable and stress free!

  6. Rachel @ Paper Cuts

    I would love to have a review cushion! I’ve been formatting posts ahead of time, but I’m never quite ahead enough to get ahead of my reading. Maybe soon! 🙂

    I’m really excited to read Gates of Thread and Stone, because it sounds so cool, and look at the Harper pretties! I am absolutely dying to get to The Jewel, The Perilous Sea, and Illusions of Fate. 🙂

    I hope you love all of these and have a great week!

  7. Berls @ Fantasy is More Fun

    You’re doing fantastic with COYER! I’ve only done 11 reviews and have like 3 more scheduled at most. So you’re kicking my butt 🙂 Congrats on being ahead, I’m a little ahead right now too and it’s a fantastic feeling!

  8. Heidi

    I know what you mean about a review cushion I had one until summer came and everything got crazy and sad when I lost my dog. Now I am scraping by. Hope to get ahead again soon. You got some many lovely books up there I don’t even know where to start. I hope you find a few gems in there.

  9. Reviews from a Bookworm

    WOW! Now that is one amazing ARC collection you got, so many books I am excited to get to. I have eARCs of a few and plan to get to them soon. The Jewel has such a brilliant cover, I hope I end up loving the book. I also love the look of Illusions of Fate, and am really impressed with the cover for that one. I hope you enjoy all of your books this week 🙂 Here’s my STS.
