Weekly Update #169, in which the heat has arrived...


Welcome to my Weekly Update where I post my blog's schedule for the week! I'm linking up to The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer, as well as to Tynga's Reviews for Stacking the Shelves and Talk Supe for Bought, Borrowed, and Bagged showcasing the books I added to my shelves or Kindle this week.

Last Saturday we hit a high of 97 and this Saturday we hit 116 where we are in Arizona. Normally we don't really get that high until mid-July. I do okay under 110, but above that and it's just plain hot. My AC in the car doesn't really work either once it gets over 105 so unless we're in the car for over 30 minutes the air never really gets cool enough so that you're not still hot. I will say it is perfect swimming weather though. The water feels heavenly and there's not a chance of being cold. What are temps like where you are?

Here's what to expect on the blog this week...

Dawn at Emberwilde (Treasures of Surrey, #2)Finders KeepersThrough the Storm (From Kenya, With Love #3)
On the Edge: How My Crappy Job Changed My LifeIn the Shadow of the Dragon KingRelentless (The Hero Agenda, #2)

I got some fun stuff in the mail this week! My favorite would have to be my Porter jersey (thank you, Becky Wade!!!). It fits great and is comfy and I love how well it ties in to the last Porter Family book, Her One and Only (see my review here). I haven't been on NetGalley or Edelweiss for over a month, so I went and grabbed some eARCs that I'd missed, so you can check those out below as well.
