Weekly Update #83

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, this week.

This week I have a lighter schedule and I'm rather happy about that. The kids are off of school for fall break and so I plan on reading when I can and posting reviews, but not doing as much as usual, at least tour-wise. Here's what you can expect this week:

I'll be participating in the tour for The Mason Jar by James Russell Lingerfelt.

I'll be posting for Waiting on Wednesday this week and I'm looking forward to it! Did you see last week's WOW for Waistcoats and Weaponry?

Friday Favorites will be up again. I'm hoping I'll have a favorite to share. We'll see.

I may be posting for Stacking the Shelves. Just depends on what I get this week. I did get quite a few books over the past week and so had a STS post yesterday that you can see here. Go check out what I got! I'll also be a tour stop for Gone for a Soldier by Marsha Ward.

I'll be reviewing Daughter of Highland by Carrie Turansky. I love stories set in historical England. This one is set in Edwardian times.
The Daughter of Highland Hall (Edwardian Brides, #2)

There is the usual Monthly Giveaway for October for a copy of Illusions of Fate by Kiersten White (US only), which I really loved. There is also my giveaway stop for Something Wicked Strikes open internationally and giveaways for Gladys Knight's new album and The Lion House's new cookbook.

Did you miss any of these posts from last week?

I'm planning on finishing these this week and reviewing them as well (hopefully):
Broken Forest (Daath Chronicles, #1) Wicked Path (Daath Chronicles, #2) Winterkill

I'm hoping to get through this one this week as well:
Snow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes, #1)

Then I'll be reading the other books on my currently-reading shelf on Goodreads and/or books from my sequels pile from the library.

What do you have going on this week?

    That's a lot of books to read and review. My list is crazy also. I'm doing good on the reading part. It's the reviewing part that's behind. I'm working on it though. I see severa; books I'll be adding to my TBR too. Thanks for sharing and for the giveaways. I entered some!

  3. The Daath Chronicles looks fantastic. I want to read Winterkill also! I cannot wait to hear what you think about it.

    I have not read any of the book..yet. I have not read dystopian books.

  5. I'm excited that you're part of my Book Tour, Tressa!

  6. Thanks, Laura! I'm behind on my reviews too, but plan on catching up soon.

  7. Very interesting stories, both of them. :)

  8. Me too! My ecopy won't open so now I get to wait until it's released. :(

  9. Your tour filled up nicely, Marsha. My mom, sister, and I have read this series and enjoyed it. I hope it does well!

  10. Too bad. I don't have a copy yet :(
