Hey guys! How has your week been?

This has been a very long week. I had some work functions that I needed to go to on Thursday and Friday so I had two 14 hour work days in a row. So I have really been looking forward to this weekend. Lots of relaxing and cleaning and errand running yesterday and today I am just relaxing. Reading and watching tv and trying to stretch the day out before the the work week starts up again.

Great books in the mail this week and I have an awesome giveaway going on right now where 2 SIGNED copies of Black Iris and 1 copy of City Love is up for grabs.

May also means the start of two blog events. I am participating in Clean Sweep ARC and Blog ahead. I am trying to get ahead on my blog posts and reading again. Hopefully by the end of may I will have read enough books and scheduled enough posts that I will be two weeks out. That would be so wonderful.


Books I got this week:

*Thank you so much to Sourcebooks Fire, Berkley, Penguin, Full Fathom Five Digital, NetGalley, HarperTeen, Harlequin Teen, Katherine Tegen Books, Balzer + Bray, St. Martin’s Press,  HarperCollins, Dutton, Atria, and all of the authors for these awesome books! *

    Even though I was getting burnt out on Charley, i am so excited for Eighth Grave After Dark!

    Hope you have a fab week.

  2. Kathy

    You had a crazy work week so I hope you are getting some relax time. You have so many great books. Spelled sounds really good and I also have 99 Days, so hopefully we will both like it. I hope this week is not as stressful for you!

  3. Kristin

    Nice list! Nowhere but Here and Spelled both look like such interesting books. You’ve definitely got a lot of awesome reading ahead of you. 🙂

  4. Deborah

    Wow! A big week on your blog. Your books look as if they cross a range of genres. I’m trying to read a bit more broadly (thrillers, suspense and crime fiction are my faves) so admire people who can appreciate a variety of books!


  5. kimbacaffeinate

    Wow awesome haul and it looks like you have plenty of arcs for your challenges. Good luck Michelle. Hope this week isn’t quite as busy.

  6. Jeann @ Happy Indulgence

    Sounds like some very busy work weeks, they can definitely take a lot out of you! Looks like you’ve gotten so many wonderful books, I’m interested in Black Iris definitely! Have a great week ahead.

  7. Lekeisha

    Great books! I liked Invincible enough that I want to read the next book. Can’t wait to read Finding Paris!

  8. Alyssa Susanna (The Eater of Books!)

    Phew! You will have your hands full! I’m loving all of the covers. Black Iris is gorgeous! I’m not sure what the book is about but I’ve seen a lot of love for it. I see you read/reviewed Getting Lucky Number Seven – I did so today! I loved it as well. Such a great novel!

    Anyway. Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a lovely week 🙂

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

    Spelled looks adorable! And I am super excited for Nowhere But Here! That cover on City Love is soooo pretty! I may need to get that one lol. Happy reading!
