Weekly Update #73

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.

There have been so many great books coming out and so many that I'm trying to read! This week is a little lighter in tours, which means I'll be focusing more on getting more read. :D Here's what to expect:

I'll be a blog tour stop for The Butterfly and the Violin by Kristy Cambron. All I can say is: beautiful and poignant.
The Butterfly and the Violin (Hidden Masterpiece, #1)

I may post for Top Ten Tuesday. I'll be a book tour stop for Magnolia by Kristi Cook. I'm looking forward to this one!

I'll be posting for Waiting for Wednesday, as always. Did you see last week's WOW for A Lady of Willowgrove Hall? We'll also be blitzing the Grand Finale of the tour for Reign of Shadows by Melissa Wright. In case you haven't heard it enough, I really love this series! I'll also be reviewing When I Fall in Love by Susan May Warren for its tour. So excited about this book! I just love this series and this author!!!
 When I Fall in Love (Christiansen Family, #3)

I'll be posting some more brief reviews, a review for The Fire Wish by Amber Lough, and possibly another review. I have lots of books to read and review. :)
The Fire Wish (The Jinni Wars, #1)

Friday Favorites will be up again. I'm not sure what I'll be picking for this week yet, so you'll just have to stop by to see.

I did get books over the past couple of weeks as well as a new bookcase (*cheers*) and included them all in my Stacking the Shelves post here.

We'll be finishing up the tour for Reese's Cowboy Kiss.

What do you have going on this week?


  1. Ooo you have some fantastic books coming up for review, I hope you adore Book of Life, and LaFevers books rocked my socks off! Have an awesome week Tressa!

  2. I checked out the emergency prep book and entered the giveaway. Thanks for the heads up.

  3. I've heard great things about The Book of Life. I hope you enjoy it! The Butterfly and the Violin cover is stunning. It sounds like the book lives up to the cover as well! Have a great week!

  4. Grave mercy was a book that really took me by surprise, I didn't think I would like it as much as I did but ended up completely hooked. I have yet to finish the series (or what's out of it so far) but cant wait to hear what you though of it.

    Look's like you've had a good week :)

    also new blogloving follower.

  5. Hope you'll enjoy all your new books :D I think you'll like Midnight Thief ;)

  6. I've been trying to read Book of Life for three weeks now! It's good, but takes time and I've had a pretty full schedule. I've also been meaning to read LaFevers books for FOREVER and will definitely get them read now since I have the third from Edelweiss and only have a limited time to read it. I'm glad you liked them. It seems to be the general consensus. :)

  7. It's so hard to resist some of those tours! I am doing better at that though. :)

  8. It is just such a good resource and it really sounds like you could use it from your other comment. That is a lot of natural disasters to be on the ready for all the time!

  9. The Butterfly and the Violin... *sigh* The cover is really gorgeous and the book as well. It is definitely in the Christian genre with the inspirational moments, but really good.

  10. They're not my normal fair per se, but the first book sucked me in and the writing and characters are just amazing! If you like paranormal and well-written books, I'd recommend them. The second book is in an historical setting and it was so well done! (There is mature content.)

  11. Everyone I know loved Grave Mercy and I think I'll enjoy it as well. I'll come over and follow you back...

  12. I think I will too. It sounds like my kind of book. :)

  13. Curious to see what you think of Magnolia because I didn't request it. Love the idea of a wedding-themed readalong. I recently read a book that would qualify!

  14. I really liked Magnolia in case you haven't seen my review. I haven't gotten to those comments yet. :) I love the pict they used for the button for that! I'm hoping more will enter.


I love comments! I try to read and reply to them all. Feel free to agree or disagree and generally share your thoughts with me.
