Monday Wrap Up [2]

Monday Wrap up is my new weekly post where I link up all the posts from the previous week and mention whats coming in the next one. (All part of my 'get organized on the blog' 2011 resolution)

Had a very crappy week health wise this past week, which is continuing with the flu I caught from my sister. Joy. However, I still managed to get a lot of reading done and posts sorted. So first up what I read last week (links go to Goodreads):
Green-Eyed Demon by Jaye Wells [Sabina Kane #3] - really loved it! Best of the series so far for sure. Review will be posted on Feb 3rd, which is the UK release date.
Entangled by Cat Clarke - a 2011 debut which blew me away and left me all broken and hollow and unable to breath.
When The Stars Go Blue by Caridad Ferrer - had high hopes for this one, but sadly disappointing.
Other Words For Love by Lorraine Zago Rosenthal - another good 2011 debut that I really enjoyed.

Post wise:
Monday 10th Jan - Review - Secrets of the Demon by Diana Rowland [Kara Gillian #3]. Evil I tell you, Evil.
Tuesday 11th Jan - Review - Shadowspell by Jenna Black [Faeriewalker #2]. If not for the romantic plots it'd be a damn perfect book!!
Wednesday 12th Jan - Cover - Sirensong by Jenna Black [Faeriewalker #3]. Love! That is all.
And no, there was no post from the lovely Nayu this Weds as there normally is, like me she was sick :( She should be back to posting here on Weds this coming Weds. :)
Thursday 13th Jan - Review - The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting [The Body Finder #1]. Beautiful, creepy, romantic and awesome!
Friday 14th Jan - Review - Entangled by Cat Clarke. I already said it's awesome right? Well let me say this instead then: BUY IT!! :)
Sunday 16th Jan - In My Mailbox - no crazy buying this week, but still some great titles.

Week 17th - 23rd Jan will see these reviews going up:
Blood Feud by Alyxandra Harvey - okay, so this one was meant to go up last week, it was scheduled and everything, but then I changed my mind and posted my review of The Body Finder instead. So it's going up later today instead!
Delirium by Lauren Oliver - read an e-ARC of this one from NetGalley months ago, finally posting my review.
The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney - it's out on Thursday (20th Jan) in the UK. I suggest you all go buy it ;)
Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning - it's out on Tuesday (18th Jan, US) and I am dying for it!! Hoping to review it by the end of the week!

Reading wise, through the fog of flu (which, by the way, could describe basically all my day to day symptoms anyways, just x10 when I've got actual flu on top of them), I've got aims of managing 4 books again this week (I like to manage 3 on a normal week, so I'm probably asking too much of myself, especially as I have managed 4 a week for the last 3 weeks, anyways...). I've got 3 titles from UK Book Tours right now: Awakened by Ednah Walters (currently reading); Possessions by Nancy Holder; and The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller. I want (need) to get them read this week. But the only book I can guarantee being read this week is Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning. The final book in her Fever series and if you've not yet read any of them, you need to. Instantly. <3 I needs me more Barrons....

I hope you all have a much better week ahead of you than mine is looking to be right now (not self-pity, just fact). :)

Well I hope you're feeling better very soon and that you manage to read all 4 of the books you're hoping too.

I'm not looking at a good week either. 2nd round of blood tests for me and a virtually guaranteed diagnosis of something I really do not want for the rest of my life :(. Hoping both are weeks are better than they're looking right now. *hugs*

Oh I hope your week isn't as bad as you expect it to be! Good luck reading your four books as well :) I've had Eternal Ones on my TBR shelves for ages now, should really get to it as well..
