Weekly Update #119

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 to Tynga's Reviews and Talk Supe for showcasing the books I added to my shelves or Kindle this week.

Last week was actually really nice. I had some spontaneous quality time with the kids and a much less scheduled week. This week we have some family in town and we'll be gone for a couple of days to be with them, which we're all looking forward to. We finally have hit real summer temps for Arizona. We hit 105 today, although my car said 107. It's also a lighter week for me on the blog and will continue to be that way for the rest of the month. I've been cutting back on tours I sign up for quite a bit. This means I just get to read more of whatever I want and I have quite a few review books that I still need to finish and others that I'd pre-ordered and would like to read. Should be fun! Here's what to expect this week:

I'll be posting a review of Kisses in the Rain by Krista Lynne Jensen for her tour. This author is newer to me, but I'm really enjoying this book!
Kisses in the Rain

I'm planning on participating in Top Ten Tuesday. The topic is Top Ten Books On My TBR For Summer 2015 this time around. Should be tough whittling that list down to only ten. ;)

I'll be posting for Waiting on Wednesday. Did you see last week's WOW for two YA urban fantasies? I'll also be reviewing Hidden Identities from the Sweet & Sassy Anthology for its tour.
Sweet & Sassy Anthology: Hidden Identities

I'm planning on posting reviews of these, hopefully:
 The Keys of the Watchmen (Watchmen Saga #1) Attractive Nuisance (Legally in Love Book 1) Seaside Surprises: A Sweet Romance (The Seaside Hunters, #1) A Timeless Romance Anthology: California Dreamin' Collection

I'm hoping to do a series review for Dawn Crandall's books for her Everstone Chronicles series. There will also be a giveaway. Hurray!
The Hesitant Heiress (The Everstone Chronicles, #1) The Bound Heart (The Everstone Chronicles, #2) The Captive Imposter (The Everstone Chronicles, #3)

I'll be reviewing The Healthy Family Slow Cooker Cookbook. We've been enjoying testing this one out!

I added a few ebooks from NetGalley over the past week. Covers will take you to Goodreads:
A Million Miles Away Until We Meet Again Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between Darkthaw

I've just got one giveaway going on right now for a signed The Winner's Curse (the button will take you to it):

I'm co-hosting a read-along for Silver in the Blood by Jessica Day George (who I LOVE) in July with Dena from Batch of Books. We held a read-along last fall for the Finishing School Series by Gail Carriger and had a blast! This is another book we decided we'd like to read together. The book releases on July 7th. Jessica will be stopping by as well so we can ask her some questions. I've included the linky here for anyone who is interested in joining. We wanted this up in plenty of time for everyone to join and get their books and all. We'll basically be reading a chapter or about 26 pages a day. We'd love to have you! You don't have to have a blog to participate either. Readers are definitely welcome!!
