The Weekend Update - 1.3.15

Saturday, January 3, 2015 with 6 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!  =)
Happy New Year!!! Usually, this is the point where I lament the fact that I can't believe another year has passed, but this year, it feels right. I'm ready to make some changes -- and stick with them! -- and it feels like it's time. I'm talking personally and blogging-wise, but I'm really excited across the board. I hope that this time next year, I can say I'm proud of what I accomplished in 2015.

The husband's at the deer lease for the last weekend of the season, so Katie and I are taking it easy this weekend. Which is to say, I'm trying to catch up on some reviews and readreadread while she plays Minecraft or watches Minecraft videos, lol.

Anyway, here's what I scored this week:

For Review:

Willowgrove by Kathleen Peacock - I haven't kept up with this series since I read an early copy of Hemlock but I remember enjoying the Veronica Mars-vibe I got from it. Can't wait to read all three of these books back-to-back.

That's it. That's my haul. I'm pretty excited that I only added one book to my TBR this week. A nice change of pace. :) How about you? What did you get this week?

  1. Happy New Year! I'm always trying to make changes and resolutions too. Sometimes they work sometimes I quit but trying is the first step! I've always wanted to read Hemlock! Never got a chance to yet. If it has a Veronica Mars vibe then I'm sure I'd love it.

  2. Ohh Willowgrove! Looking forward to that one. Enjoy!

  3. I am really excited about thenew year too! I'm ready for change and I just know 2"15 will be amazing. I've not read that series-I'll be on the lookout for your reviews.

  4. I keep meaning to read the Hemlock series. I have the first book. Yeah, I definitely need to read more from my own shelves and stop buying so much, but I just can't stop! Happy reading!
