Weekly Update #88

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, and Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews, this week.

Dena from Batch of Books and I are hosting a read-along for the last two books of the Finishing School Series by Gail Carriger. We both posted out first updates on Friday. Check mine out here and Dena's here. This is such a great series!!

Here's what you can expect this week:

I'll be participating in the tour for Softly Falling by Carla Kelly. I've read one other book by this author and really enjoyed it. Come see what I thought of this one and enter for a copy of your own!
Softly Falling

I'll be posting a review of The Caller by Juliet Marillier.
The Caller (Shadowfell, #3)

I'll be posting for Waiting on Wednesday. Did you see last week's WOW for Love and Other Theories? I'll also be a tour stop for Sweet and Clean Romance Collection by Paige Timothy and Raine Gillespie.
And Something Blue For Love or Money Waltzing on Wheels (Love Notes, #2) Hearts in Harmony (Love Notes,#1)

I'll be a tour stop for Lady Emma's campaign by Jennifer Moore. I read Jennifer's first book, Becoming Lady Lockwood, earlier in the year and thoroughly enjoyed it, so I'm looking forward to this one!

I'll be posting my second update for the Finishing School Read-Along. We'll be finishing up Courtsies & Conspiracies and moving on to Waistcoats and Weaponry. Can't wait! I'll also be a tour stop for Forget Me Not and Remember Me by Stacey Nash.
Forget Me Not (Collective, #1) Remember Me (Collective, #2)

I will be a tour stop for The No-Stress Holiday Organizer by Angela Baxter, Rodney Fife, and Whitney Lindsley. This so got me in the mood for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and spending time with family. :)

    I have a hard time resisting books at NetGalley and Edelweiss. It's like my hand has no control. So I understand. Looks like a great stack of lots of different genres. Enjoy them.

    Looking forward to reading many reviews. Some of those ebooks look like new books from series. ;)

  3. I always end up grabbing too many books from NetGalley as well! And then I wonder why I find myself overwhelmed. LOL! It looks like you have some really great reading ahead of you. I'm a huge fan of Carriger's adult series and have been meaning to give this series a try as well. Have a great week!

  4. Wow. You have an awesome haul/weekly update this week, Tressa! Hope you enjoy these and I'll look forward to what the week brings at Wishful Endings.

  5. A week full of great books. I love Juliet Marillier's writing. Looking forward to THE CALLER.

  6. Holy Moly! :) Shadow Soul is AWESOME!

  7. Becoming beauty looks beautiful! And I'm super excited about Creatively Christmas! I live everything about the holidays! YAY!

  8. A lot of interesting books you got there :)

    Here's mine:

  9. Lol! Grace, I'm so glad I'm not alone in that trigger finger for ARC requests. I did better this week.

  10. A couple of them are. :)

  11. I am so not alone! Lol! You really need to read her Finishing Series. It just gets better with each book.

  12. I know! Isn't that a crazy haul!! Really, what was I thinking? This last week was better (behind on comments again - busy week).

  13. Well, I did grab it off of your recommendation. The series looks and sound really neat. I've just got to figure out when I can fit it in...

  14. I looked through it an I'm a little overwhelmed, but it has a CD and I'm excited to make some great decorations!!

  15. Quit a mix, huh? ;) I'll come check yours out, even if late.

  16. I really love the cover for that one!


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.
