The Weekend Update - 5.30.15

Saturday, May 30, 2015 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!  =)
This week was rather quiet. Not that work didn't continue to suck, but I kept my head down and did what was necessary and waited for quitting time so I could go home and be myself again. But my reading really picked up again this week as I tried to escape what was bothering me, and I read some really great books in the process.

And I took off yesterday so that I could attend Katie's rescheduled Field Day, so that was a fun break from real life. She's so carefree and isn't the least bit competitive…I really wish I could be more like her in that way. Just have fun and ignore the rest, ya know? Adulting is hard. :*(

Anyway, here's what I scored this week:

For Review:

Nada. I haven't requested anything and I haven't received anything and I am a-okay with that. :D I have enough to read as it is...

Nothing this week. I was busy catching up on last week's borrows. =)


P.S. I Still Love You (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #2)

P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han - I adored the first book SO much but I was glad I knew a sequel was on the way when I got to that "Dear Peter"! Oi! That was one heck of a cliffy. I already listened to this one and OMG it's just as cute and endearing as the first. I need to read more Jenny Han!


The Ring and the Crown (The Ring and the Crown, #1)Sea Hearts

I grabbed this week's SYNC audiobooks, and I'm almost through with both of them. You can find out more on how to download them for free yourselves below. :)

So, that's my haul. :) How about you? What did you get this week?

Jen's Currently Just Finished Reading/Listening To:

I just finished these last night and haven't decided on my next read/listen...

The Ring and the Crown (The Ring and the Crown, #1)The Witch Hunter (The Witch Hunter, #1)I really liked this one. I kept thinking it was going to go into territory that would make it less than the book could have been, but it didn't. Yay! More on that in my review soon.

I've had a finished copy of this since release thanks to the publisher, but I never could find the time for it. Thanks to SYNC, I didn't have to wait anymore. :) I do wish that I'd checked Goodreads before starting, though, because I was under the impression this was a stand-alone. And it could have worked as one, so I'm not sure about the sequel...

Upcoming Reviews:

Dream a Little Dream (The Silver Trilogy, #1)Every Last WordThe Witch Hunter (The Witch Hunter, #1)
