Week in Review: May 17


This week on the blog you can check out:

This week went by pretty quickly. On Monday I helped with a Toddler Spring Fling at work. I think the kids had a good time. Then the rest of the week flew by! I also did some book talks for school librarians (they should be posting next month on here) and one of the librarians checked out one of my books which I am calling a win.

Nicole and I have been hardcore planning for BEA and I’m getting pretty excited about it.

I also had a nice chats with some people on twitter about blog interaction and comments (if you ever want to talk about either please let me know, I am ready!) which I always find fascinating. That partly led to me reconnecting with a lot of people on Twitter which was excellent.

Blog-wise I’m pretty excited about this week too. I got to review one of my most anticipated 2015 titles Hold Me Like a Breath which I am actually getting even more excited about the more I talk about it. I also had a great time interviewing Tiffany about the book so another win!

But one of the zany views from my commute this week:

By the time this posts I will also hopefully have new glasses for the first time in FOUR LONG YEARS. I am inordinately excited about the prospect.

This week I read The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh and The Devil You Know by Trish Doller. Loved the first and totally re-evaluating my feelings about ancient historical fiction based solely on that title. I’m not sure about The Devil You Know. It was fun and it sizzled and it was smart but it was also a bit predictable. I think I am coming down in favor of liking it because it was kind of subversive but it might not be one I need to own.

No new book acquisitions but if you want to see how my month in reading is shaking out be sure to check out my May Reading Tracker.

How was your week?
