Weekly Update #111

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 linking to Tynga's Reviews and Talk Supe for showcasing the books I added this week.

I finally have a week where I don't have a review scheduled every single day. There are still quite a few and I'll be adding in others for books that are just for review, but not for tours, which I need to do.

We found out this week that our little Shi-Tzu that we've had for almost twelve years has congestive heart failure and may not be with us much longer. They don't know if he'll last a couple of months or years, but the focus is on keeping him comfortable and happy while we can. I made my husband take him in to the vet because I would have just cried. I've already had some pretty rough nights with him, so I knew it was coming. :(

So, I'm happy for the lighter week. Here's what to expect this week:

I'll be posting reviews for The Continuous Atonement for Teens and Practicing for Heaven by Brad Wilcox.
The Continuous Atonement for Teens Practicing for Heaven

There will be some promotional posts and a possible review. We'll see.

I'll be a tour review stop for A Perfect Fool by Bethany Zohner Herbert. I've heard only good things, so I'm looking forward to it!
The Perfect Fool

I'll be posting for Waiting on Wednesday. Did you see last week's WOW for a YA fantasy and an historical Christian romance?

I'll be a tour stop for Some Kind of Normal by Juliana Stone. I really like the cover for this one and I'm also looking forward to reading it.
Some Kind of Normal

I'll be tour stop for The Impossible Race by Chad Morris. This is the third and final book in this series that my son just loves and we're both looking forward to seeing how it ends. Although, honestly my son finished it the day after it arrived in the mail, so I'm the one who still has to find out what happens. I've sworn him to secrecy. ;)

I will be a tour stop for Crave, Eat, Heal by Annie Oliverio. This is the first Vegan cookbook I've ever tried. I didn't realize it was Vegan until after I got the book, but so far I have been pleasantly surprised and enjoying what I've tried.
Crave, Eat, Heal: Plant-based, Whole-food Recipes to Satisfy Every Appetite

I added a few books this week:
When Grace Sings by Kim Vogel Sawyer (Thank you Waterbrook Press!)
A Love Like Ours by Becky Wade (Thank you Bethany House!)

EBOOKS (covers will take you to Goodreads or Amazon)
The Scorpion Rules Out of Control My Pride, His Prejudice
A Matter of Heart The Many Lives of John Stone The Artisans Come Away with Me

There's just my monthly giveaway going on right now for signed copies of Grave Mercy and Mortal Heart (the cover will take you to the giveaway):

Did you miss any of these posts from last week?

I also am still wishing to finish and review these books, at least, in additional to my scheduled posts:
Kiss Kill Vanish Deadly Alliance

What do you have going on this week?


  1. I'm so sorry for your Shi-tzu, they're such lovely little dogs :( Take good care of him - and of you *hugs*

    Oh my I am so sorry about your dog. On the book front looks like a great book haul. Come Away with Me looks good. I am excited to see more about the vegan cookbook - I am not vegan but I find that those or vegetarian cookbooks give great ideas on how to have more meatless days - Have a great week!

  3. Wishing your dog a couple more happy years with you. Looking forward to seeing your post on Some Kind of Normal. I didn't realize that was coming out!

  4. I am sorry to hear about your pup. I know it is so sad when they suffer. 12 years is a long time, I am sure you will continue to make him feel loved. I hope for the best possible outcome for you and him. (sorry, I am really bad at knowing what to say with things like this)

  5. It's heart breaking to see our pets suffer. My sister's black lab of 9 years recently passed away unexpectedly from congestive heart failure. It was hard on the family but it was also an amazing bonding experience for them too.

  6. I've been wanting to check out that series by Chad Morris. It looks super good!

  7. Excited to read Jessica Stone's book too! I love her contemporary romances.

  8. Wow! It sounds like you have a very busy week planned out. I'm sorry to hear about your dog....it is always so hard, isn't it, when stuff like this happens? I would love to have a review scheduled for each day of the week just so I could get caught up but I don't see that happening in the near future. I hope that this week goes better for you!

  9. Oh sorry to hear about your doggie! I hate when one of my fur babies gets sick and you can't do anything for them. :( Enjoy all your new reads! :)

  10. I'm so sorry to hear about your dog :( That's always rough.

  11. So sorry about your pup. Pets give us so much love and ask only for a good life with us. It sounds like he has had that with you. Hugs.

  12. Thank you! They are and I appreciate it!

  13. Thanks, Grace. The vegan cookbook did have some good recipes. :)

  14. Thanks, Jen. We hope so. It's going to be a long road either way. I think you'd like Some Kind of Normal. :)

  15. Lol! It's okay Karen. I know what you mean and we love him to pieces so we'll keep him comfortable as long as it's good for him.

  16. They would know how I've been feeling then. :/ He's such a sweet little guy. He doesn't hardly react to the pain except to be more mopey and more affectionate. He's doing better though.

  17. It is definitely Middle Grade. I still really liked it, especially for my 10-year-old, but for YA and older it might be more of a stretch. Let me know if you read it and what you think.

  18. It was good. I hope you like it when you read it!

  19. Thanks, Samantha! This week has been really busy, but better.

  20. Thanks Stormi! I know what you mean.

  21. Thanks, Steph. Appreciate it! The meds have helped over the past week and he is feeling better - although he'll never get better. Hope your week was great!
