Weekly Update #74/Stacking the Shelves #51

Welcome to my Weekly Update where I post my blog's schedule for the week. I'm posting a little early, but I've been working on getting things scheduled ahead as I'll be busy with family for about six days next week starting Thursday. I'll be catching up with comments the following Wednesday.

I'm linking up to The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews.

Here's what to expect this week:

I'll be posting a review for Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers. I waited much too long to read this one, but you know what? Now I get to read all three books together, so I guess there are good things about waiting too. :)
Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin, #1)

I'll be reviewing and a book tour stop for Sense & Sensibility: A Latter-day Tale by Rebecca H. Jamison. This is a sweet LDS retelling of Austen's Sense and Sensibility.

Sense and Sensibility: A Latter-day Tale

I'll be posting for Waiting for Wednesday, as always. Did you see last week's WOW for Black Ice?

I'll be posting some more some reviews. I'm not sure which of these will make an appearance or if they all will. It just depends how much reading I get in. Possibilities include:
Among the JoyfulA Bridge Unbroken Magic Within Darkness Within

Friday Favorites will be up again, but I won't have time to pick a favorite. I've got a ton to do before our mini vacation and having family come visit. Although, I still always love hearing about your favorites, so please do share!

I did get some books this week. Of course I did. ;) HarperTeen released a bunch and I can never help myself, especially when several are books I'm dying to read and are already on my can't-wait-to-read list. Here they all are (from Edelweiss, NetGalley, and for review):
Remember My Heart and Other Black Holes Geek Girl Liars, Inc.
The Last Time We Say Goodbye Red Queen A Wicked Thing Everything That Makes You
Monstrous  The Winter People Not in the Script (If Only . . . #3)
Love Bites (Sugar City, #1) The Aftermath Miss Fellingham's Rebellion: A Regency Romance The Elementalists
Leaving Liberty Reign of Shadows (Descendants #3)

What do you have going on this week?


  1. I've yet to read Grave Mercy. With all the great things I've heard about it, it's been on my to-read list for a while now, but hasn't happened yet. Although like you, by the time I read it at least I'll get to read all three at once.

  2. Glad I'm not alone. ;) I'm glad that I'll be reading all three together because I'm not ready after Grave Mercy to let this storybook world go.

  3. Red Queen looks so good, and I love LeFevers books! Have a delightful week Tressa :)

  4. Your Stacking the Shelves is AWESOME. So many titles there I'm dying to read like Not In the Script and Red Queen.

    Have a good week! :)

  5. Great books this week! I'm dying to try the Harkness series but I have so many other books waiting on me it may be years! Have a fantastic week!

    Great books! I still need to read Grave Mercy myself. ;)

  7. I love your haul Tressa. I haven't heard of many of these books but will be looking them up shortly!

  8. Doesn't Red Queen look good? It sounds good too. I'm crossing my fingers that it will be. :) Thanks, Kimba!

  9. You're so much better at resisting than I am Jen! Geek Girl has been on my list for forever, but it wasn't released in the US, then I loved Cynthia's Hallowed series and must read this one. Four of the others are reads I'm really excited about... Anyway, hopefully I'll keep reading as much as I have been and get through another hundred books. Crazy, I know. :)

  10. Thanks, Milka! I'm really looking forward to reading them all!! :D

  11. Thanks Laurel! I'll come check out your week...

  12. I know what you mean. That's why I put of LaFevers' series. The first book in that series just sucked me right in so I've had to read the rest of the books. Lol!

  13. It does look and sound really good. Hopefully it will be. :)

  14. It was definitely worth it. I'm reading the second book now. I just love the setting and how well the characters are written. I hope you end up liking it when you do get a chance to read it!

  15. I hope you find a few to grab or add to your tbr. Thanks for stopping by, Chanpreet!

  16. I've been putting off lots of reads....it seems the vacation period has made me lazy >.<

    My Sunday

  17. The books by Robin LaFevers look good (among others), I love women with weapons ^^ Have a great reading week !
