Weekly Wrap-Up: 10/21

Hey friends! How has everyone’s week been? Mine was busy in the best way possible. John was traveling for work so I had to be super stealthy to post around the kids’ schedule, but thankfully all the most pressing posts were made on time. I embarked on a new adventure reviewing book-related products for a company called Barbara Grace, LLC, posted some book reviews, and posted in a blog tour I’ve been looking forward to for awhile now. I received some fun book mail, and I’m sure you can tell via my pictures that my week got crazier as it went on, which lead to little creativity. It was brought to my attention that I haven’t been mentioning my NetGalley approvals on here, so I’ll try to include those, as well as other ebooks for review periodically on these posts.

Well, after receiving 3 separate copies of this in the mail, I figured it was time to pick it up and read it! I’d seen a couple of early reviews, one by my Goodreads friend Linda (we have mostly similar taste in books), so I went in expecting to really enjoy this one. Having a book with a lead female police officer who is 6 months pregnant is intriguing; I’m almost through with the book and I have to say, so far it is a strong start to a new series that I can’t wait to continue. This one will be published by Minotaur Books on 11/01/16, and if you are a crime fiction/police procedural fan, you’ll want to pick this one up.

 

 

NETGALLEY APPROVALS:

29939148

I have been looking forward to this one for quite some time! I love Chevy Stevens’ novels; I was a bit disappointed with her last one so I’m hoping Never Let You Go gets back on track with her immensely creative talent. I decided to go ahead and request via NetGalley in case I couldn’t get my hands on a paper arc in time; this one has awhile before it is published on 03/14/17 by St. Martin’s Press. I love how the cover stays true to her previous designs, and it has me totally captivated, wondering where she’ll go with this one.

Yay! This was actually first published in Germany back in 2011, so it’s a republishing in English coming 02/07/17 by Pegasus Books. That cover-WOW! After that drew me in, the summary on this psychological thriller had me hooked. I’m hoping this book translates well into English and that it doesn’t lose too much of the feeling behind the story. Either way, I’m really excited to see if this one lives up to the general ratings on Goodreads.

 

 

 

 

#BOOKMAIL:

What a fun week for book mail! I received a few from Amy at Novelgossip; I’ve had Wrecked and We Are Unprepared on my TBR for awhile now and was psyched that she shared them with me! I also received The River at Night and Where I Can See You from their publishers, but The Girl from Venice was surprise mail! It showed up in a box labeled DO NOT OPEN UNTIL OCTOBER 18 from Simon & Schuster which was really fun! The last picture is a book I received awhile back but recently finished; I just wanted to highlight it once more as it was one of my favorite reads of the year to date. My favorite package this week, though, contained a paperback book all the way from the UK that I reviewed back in June featuring a quote from my blog!! So exciting, as this was a first for me and my little blog; I’m so proud to see it grow and flourish slowly but surely. I’m so grateful to each and every author/publisher, reader, and blogger that has read and shared my content these last 6 months; your support is what has grown my audience and I do not take that lightly.

That’s it for this week folks! Were any of the books above on your TBR list or ones you’ve read recently? If so, I’d love to hear about it! I’m planning something for next month and will need my readers/fellow bloggers help to make it a success-details to come! 🙂
