Monday Wrap Up [7]

Welcome to my weekly wrap up!

Before I go anywhere, for those who just catch the top part of this message: Check out my YA contemps giveaway!! It's open internationally, 2 winners, and a choice from 12 books! Go, go, go! ;)

Okay, now to last week. Last week sucked. A lot. For lots of reasons, but mostly because on Friday one of my babies, Sunny (one of my rabbits) got dangerously sick and spent a night at the vets. Very nearly lost him so spent all weekend very stressed out and worried. He's improving lots now, but still not completely better. Check up at the vets today, fingers crossed all goes well. Topped off a spectacularly bad weekend with a twisted knee, will make life interesting for a few days, anyways...

What I Read
The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff - took me Monday - Friday to finish it because for various reasons I was too sick/busy/worried to read, but it's good!
Desires of the Dead by Kimberly Derting - preferred book 1, The Body Finder, but still a very good read.

I knew 5 books this week would be pushing it, but that was kinda pathetic. Stress and exhaustion = no reading.

What I Posted
Tuesday - Review - Outside In by Maria V. Snyder [Inside Out #2] rating 3.5/5
Wednesday - Waiting on Wednesday - Love Story by Jennifer Echols
                   - What does it take for you to drop a book? - Some interesting comments, love to hear more!
Thursday - Review - Flash Burnout by L. K. Madigan, rating 4.5/5
Friday - Review - Half Moon by Jordan Deen [The Crescent #2] rating 4.5/5
Saturday - YA Contemps Giveaway! - 2 winners, 12 books to choose from.
Sunday - In My Mailbox - last week sucked, apart from the books!

What I'm Posting This Week
Good question. Reviews for Desires of the Dead by Kimberly Derting and All You Get Is Me by Yvonne Prinz, and...I've no idea what else. I'll come up with something. Maybe. I'm exhausted from the super stressful weekend and I plan on this being a quiet recovery week. I don't plan on being around the blogosphere or twitter much this week, but I'll try and catch up some next week.

What I'm Reading This Week
River Marked by Patricia Briggs (should arrive today, so it's up next!)
Dead Beautiful by Yvonne Woon
Hoping this week is a little better for reading than last week was, but given my current state, I'm sticking with low goals.

Actually, just hoping this week is all around better than last week!! I'll be more confident of that if the vet doesn't find cause for Sunny's problems. *fingers crossed* Hope you all have a great week.

I'm thinking of ordering River Marked on my Kindle since I have one now and am not 100% sure if I'm still attached to the series. So this way it will at least be a little cheaper! Plus I think I still have some gift card money...

Can't wait to see what you thought of Desires of the Dead! I liked it, but I think The Body Finder is still my fave!
