Monday Wrap Up [1]

I've decided that as part of my attempt to get organized on the blog this year, that I'd post a weekly round up of my posts from the previous week, and mention what's coming up in the following one. Only way I can mention stuff coming up, is if it's already sorted, or half sorted at least! So I'm hoping this idea will help me stay ahead of myself and also give you guys an easy look at anything you may have missed over the past week as well. So welcome to my first Monday Wrap Up!

Sunday Jan 2nd: Review of Crave by Melinda Metz and Laura J. Burns. This was a book that went straight to my heart. It's a fantastic YA vampire story, with a nice twist in that it's the human girl who needs blood. Highly recommend you check this one out!

Monday Jan 3rd: Review of My Love Lies Bleeding by Alyxandra Harvey. The first book in the Drake Chronicles series really won me over with it's sassy and sometimes serious nature.

Tuesday Jan 4th: a release day post for Unearthly by Cynthia Hand. Includes the trailer and a link to my review and I basically tell *coughordercough* you all to go buy it ;)

Wednesday Jan 5th: Nayuleska shares some Anime and Manga recommendations. I confess I've never tried either, but I'm happy that Nayu can speak to any of my readership who do :)

Thursday 6th Jan: Mini review of Past Midnight by Mara Purnhagen. This is a ghost story where I found the side characters stood out a little better than the main character. For me at least, but it's still a really good read and I'd recommend it.

Friday 7th Jan: Another mini review, this one of Circle of Fire by Keri Arthur. The first book of her Damask Circle trilogy won me over easily, I loved it.
I also posted a little mention of the slightly edited blog design. Which after about 4 or 5 different headers, I'm finally very, very happy with! I hope you guys like it as well, but if you don't, I've no problem with that feedback either!

Saturday 8th Jan: In My Mailbox [14] - aka the week I lost my head and broke my credit card ;) I did though, get LOTS of exciting titles!

Sunday 9th January: Blog Tour for Wereworld: Rise of the Wolf by Curtis Jobling. Contains the trailer and my review of the book, which I loved! I'm not often a fan of fantasy (urban fantasy I adore though!) but this one had me won over within a couple of chapters. Fantastic book!

This coming week will see me reviewing:
Secrets of the Demon by Diana Rowland. The third Kara Gillian book, which is awesome but with an infuriating huge cliff hanger! (review coming later today)
Shadowspell by Jenna Black. The second book in the Faeriewalker series, which would be pretty perfect, if not for a few issues with the romantic plot.
Blood Feud by Alyxandra Harvey. The second book in the Drake Chronicles series is one I liked, but didn't love as much as book 1, My Love Lies Bleeding [Hearts at Stake in the US].

Reading wise this week I'm hoping to manage Entangled by Cat Clarke, Forsaken by Jana Oliver and One Hundred Candles by Mara Purnhagen, as well as finishing my current read of Green-Eyed Demon by Jaye Wells.

Should be a good week! Hope you all have a good one too :)
