{The Weekend Update} 11.21.15

Saturday, November 21, 2015 with 4 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'm officially on vacation!!!! And it couldn't have come at a better time! I've been trying all week to convince the husband to combine the two Thanksgivings, but he won't reconsider, unfortunately. So I'm still stressing about hosting two dinners, but I have all week to prepare, at least. o_O

Of course, I plan to spend some of that time unwinding with a good book…or several. :D I have so many good ones in my stack, though, and I'm not sure which one to start with! So, I'll probably read a few pages of each and decide which one to read based on which one most peaks my interest. Might be a problem if they're all as good as I'm hoping, though. :)

Anyway, here's what I scored this week...

For Review:

The Vanishing Throne (The Falconer, #2)Plus One

I fee like I have been waiting ages for both of these. And I have. That cliffhanger at the end of The Falconer wrecked me for days. I'm going to re-listen, though, and then I'm diving into The Vanishing Throne, let come what may. And I've known about the Plus One audiobook for awhile, with the author keeping me apprised throughout the process since she knows how much I loved the book when I first read it last year. It's narrated by the inimitable Julia Whelan, which you know means it has to be amazing. And it is, trust me. I couldn't help but start listening as soon as it arrived in my inbox. =D

I loved Eon/Eona and I am soooooo excited about The Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman. I hope this becomes a favorite series, too! I hadn't heard much about Front Lines by Michael Grant, but after reading the blurbs on the back cover, I'm pretty sure I'm going to enjoy it, especially now that I've read the summary, too. :) Can you believe this will be my first book by the author?


None of my trades have come in yet. I haz the sads.


With Christmas on the horizon and all of the shopping I've been doing for #otspsecretsister, I've had to cut back on bookish purchases for myself. :(

So, that's my haul. =) What fabulous bookmail did you get this week?

Currently Reading:

I just finished Passenger last night, so I'm still deciding what to read next. So, I'll just be staring at my shelves for a bit. :)

Currently Listening:

Plus OneI absolutely adored this book when I read it the first time, and when the author told me she was having it made into an audiobook, my heart nearly burst. I've been wanting to revisit Sol and D'Arcy for ages, but I just couldn't fit in a re-read. I'm already loving this audio SO MUCH. It's amazing and Julia Whelan's French is worlds better than my inadequate attempt to pronounce it in my head. :P
