The Weekend Update - 11.29.14

Saturday, November 29, 2014 with 5 comments
So, since my end-of-the-week post isn't just about what I got in my mailbox or on my Kindle each week -- though that is a big part of it, I won't lie -- I decided to change up the title and intro a bit.  I might tweak the format a bit over the next few weeks, but for the most part, it'll contain the same stuff: stuff I got, stuff I did, and stuff that's coming up on the blog.  Plus, I get to use the awesome GIF you see here and blow kisses to all the people who sent me lovely books and bookish things.  Oh, and I've started linking up to Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews since I'm not using a specific meme title anymore.  April's also doing her own Stacking the Shelves posts on Sundays.  Stop by and say hi!  =)

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday if you celebrate it or a just a great week otherwise! :) I'm stuffed and happy and being lazy...thank goodness I have all these new reads to keep me cozy on the couch! :D

Jen's Currently Reading/Listening To:

Sabriel (Abhorsen, #1)Crimson BoundI know this doesn't release for awhile, but I can't help myself. I just loved Hodge's debut, and a Little Red Riding Hood retelling sounds PERFECT!

I didn't really know much about this book until Sarah J. Maas got all fangirly over it at #TTBF last month. The author was also there and I got a signed copy, but Tim Curry narrates this, so I'm going the audio route.

Upcoming Reviews:

  1. Awesome haul, Jen. I don't know where to start. Lol. The Improbable Theory looks cute! Enjoy everything, anyway. :)

  2. Brilliant haul, you've got a great selection of books. I have such cover love for the Illusionarium, it's so pretty. I also really like the look of Proof of Forever, tempted to download that one but my TBR is pretty full atm. I hope you enjoy all of your reads this week :) Here's my STS.

  3. Looks like I'm going to have to swing by edelweiss as there are quite a few of those that I'd love to get my hands on, with Crimson Bound and Illusionatarium topping the list :)

    Happy Reading!

  4. It looks like most of the people got great titles from Edelweiss this week. I'm especially excited because of Crimson Bound.

  5. You have some books that I want… to read and steal! Kidding, don’t steal! :)) Happy reading!
