Monday Wrap Up [6]

Welcome to my weekly wrap up post!

Last week was interesting what with all the kerfuffle of bloggers being ragged on and authors...not being smart. Plus real life stuff made it fun as well. Totally exhausting week, but pretty good too, I did manage to survive my parents being gone okay! Though, I didn't get as much reading done as I'd have liked.

What I Read
All You Get Is Me by Yvonne Prinz - finished this one up last Monday. I liked it, but it fell kinda flat for me.
Invincible Summer by Hannah Moskowitz - my second 5/5 rating for 2011. It broke me, but it's so freaking good!! Releases in April and I'll review it closer to that. But trust me, pre-order this one!!
Red Glove by Holly Black - ah Cassel. I love you! I love the Curse Workers and all the bad decisions and that Cassel isn't really a good guy, but kinda has his heart in the right place. Good read! Another April release to review closer to the time.
Half Moon by Jordan Deen - the second book in The Crescent trilogy and it's fantastic!

...and now that it's all laid out there and I realise I read 4 books the past week (give or take) I realise I actually did manage to read a fair bit. I think I'm just feeling overwhelmed by my giant TBR stack and my desperate desire to half it!!


What I Posted
Tuesday 8th Feb - Review - Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers.
Wednesday 9th Feb - Review by Nayuleska - Lies by Michael Grant.
Thursday 10th Feb - Review - The Eternal Ones by Kristen Miller.
Friday 11th Feb - eARC Review - One Hundred Candles by Mara Purnhagen.
Saturday 12th Feb - In My Mailbox - two weeks worth.
Sunday 13th Feb - Why I Do This - a very long post about why I do this!


What I'm Posting This Week
This week I'm reviewing Outside In by Maria V. Snyder, Flash Burnout by L. K. Madigan and...probably Half Moon by Jordan Deen as well, but this isn't quite for sure yet! I will also, for a change, be participating in Waiting On Wednesday this week. I was bored a few days ago and prepped the post cause I wasn't awake enough to read or write a review, so WoW post it is!


What I'll Be Reading
I will not give the brush off this week! This week, I have a reading plan. It consists of:
The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff (starting today)
Desires of the Dead by Kimberly Derting
Secrets and Shadows by Shannon Delany
Where I Belong by Gwendolyn Heasley
The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong

...an ambitious plan, and I don't even have my hands on Desires or Secrets yet! And they probably won't get read in that order. Still, at least I'm starting to get back in to knowing what I want to read next! Should be a good reading week, if I'm well enough to read lots.
