Weekly Wrap-Up 29

Posted November 16, 2014 by Kathy in Wrap-Up / 14 Comments

My Weekly Wrap Up is my version of The Sunday Post hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

There is nothing exciting to report for last week.  I worked only Sunday to Tuesday and then had the rest of the week off.  I was supposed to have the entire week off but because of our workload I had to cut it short. But it was still nice to have the time off.

The Ho-Ho Read-a-thon was really fun and now I’m in the holiday spirit so I’m working on some holiday themed posts.  Do you have anything posts planned for the holidays?

Here is what happened last week on the blog:

This week on the blog:

For the next 3 weeks my post schedule is really light.  Since the holidays are coming up I didn’t want to commit to any reviews or blog tours.  But I’ll still do posts for Book Blog Walkers Check-in, Book Looks and Bookish Mood Board.

Netgalley November Update:

My goal was to read 1 to 4 ARCs and here is what I’ve read so far:

  1. ARC Book Review – Midnight’s Surrender: A Dark Warriors Holiday Novella
  2. ARC Book Review – A Fool’s Gold Christmas
  3. ARC Book Review – A December Bride


Reviews coming soon:

French Kissed by Chanel Cleeton (for a blog tour next month)

French Kissed 500On the surface, Fleur Marceaux has it all. If only the facade matched reality. With one year left at the International School in London, Fleur’s struggling to graduate, her love life is a mess, and she can’t stop thinking about Max, her ex-boyfriend’s best friend. But all that pales compared to the blackmailer determined to destroy her.

There’s a social hierarchy at the International School and Max Tucker is outside the velvet ropes. After watching Fleur break his friend’s heart, Max knows to stay away from trouble, despite the crush he’s had on her since freshman year. But when they’re partnered on a project, Max learns there’s more to Fleur than meets the eye, and she just might be worth the wild ride.

The more time they spend together, the further Max falls. And when a kiss awakens a passion Fleur never imagined, she’s unable to resist Max, who she had thought was all wrong for her but might be the only thing that’s right. But will he stand by her when her secrets are revealed?


Currently reading:

Suspicion“There’s something hidden in the Maze.” Seventeen-year-old Imogen has never forgotten the last words her father said to her seven years ago, before the blazing fire that consumed him, her mother, and the gardens of her family’s English country manor.

Haunted by her parents’ deaths, Imogen moves to New York City with her new guardians. But when a letter arrives with the news of her cousin’s untimely death, revealing that Imogen is now the only heir left to run the estate, she returns to England and warily accepts her role as duchess.

All is not as it seems at Rockford, and Imogen quickly learns that dark secrets lurk behind the mansion’s aristocratic exterior, hinting that the spate of deaths in her family were no accident. And at the center of the mystery is Imogen herself–and Sebastian, the childhood friend she has secretly loved for years. Just what has Imogen walked into?

Combining a fresh twist on the classic REBECCA with a spine-tingling mystery and powerful romance, SUSPICION is an action-packed thrill ride.

      I use most of my vacation time for the kids too. It’s either because they are sick or for school events. So it was nice to have time off. I’ll try to schedule some posts ahead of time, just in case things get crazy for me too lol. Thanks Michelle!

  2. I have a few more holiday reads left over from the HoHoHo readathon so I’m going to try and read those and post some thoughts on them throughout the holidays. Hopefully I can think of some other fun holiday stuff too, but not sure yet. It did get me in the mood for the holiday!

    Hope you enjoy your current read and have a great week!

  3. Too bad you didn’t get the whole week off. Thanks for sharing with me about your daughter. It’s nice to know I am not alone. My blogging will be off the week of Thanksgiving since I will be out of town. It will be a nice visit with family. I never think of holiday stuff for the blog…. maybe this year.

      You’re welcome Angie! I hope you have a nice Thanksgiving. Taking a break from blogging will be nice. Have a safe trip!

  4. While I didn’t end up participating in the HoHoHo Readathon but I’ve been trying to read more holiday books. Other than more holiday book reviews I don’t have anything planned. At this point I’m barely getting my regular stuff up there’s no room for extra holiday stuff but I love seeing what everyone else does. Have a great week!

      I can’t plan ahead because of the kids and work, so that’s why I am always so last minute on posts lol. Maybe next year I can think ahead. Thanks for stopping by Katherine!
