Sunday Book Share #20




I'm participating in Feed My Reader Friday hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A WriterThe Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer, and Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews. The  memes allow book bloggers the chance to share print and digital books they've received and different posts and events at their blog.

I'm back! Last week I missed because I was just too damn sick. The asthma flare that I've been battling since before Christmas was complicated by first, a sinus infection, and second, by an allergic reaction to the antibiotic for the sinus infection. When my body decides to have a temper tantrum, it goes all out. It's only been in the past couple days that I'm feeling better and seeing improvement. Another week or two and I just might be healthy again, or reasonably close to it.

So, this post is a recap of the past couple weeks. In the past few days, I finished several books and you will actually see some reviews soon! On Monday, I'll post a review of  a romance novella, "How to Misbehave" by Ruthie Knox; the short version - wonderful!

The Weeks in Review:








BOOKS

Library - Print


This was recommended to me by author Morgan Ashbury when she saw I was looking for new romantic suspense to try.

Kindle Freebies


Review - PDF


I'm reviewing this next month for a blog tour. The book also counts for all of my reading challenges this year, woo hoo! (Now that I think about it, I'll have to double check and see if PDF's count for the ebook challenge.)

Review - Print


I had to laugh when the postman delivered the hardcover yesterday - I already have the ARC. Apparently, they really want me to review this book. :D I'll give away one, or maybe both, copies when I post my review. Or, if you're dying to read it and willing to review it, email me and I'll send along the hardcover and share the book love.



That's it, the past two weeks on the blog. How were your weeks? Leave me a link in your comment and I'll stop by.

    1. The cover on my ARC is similar to the one pictured, same background, almost identical pose but different clothes and angle. I like it better.
