Weekly Update #150

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 for Stacking the Shelves and Talk Supe for Bought, Borrowed, and Bagged showcasing the books I added to my shelves or Kindle this week.

I'm still messing around with my design a little, but haven't had a lot of time this week to do much. I  have been reading, cleaning out things, and playing some catch-up. My blogoversary starts in about a week and I'll have a big giveaway for that. I normally have guest authors and sponsored giveaways, but this year I'm just hosting one big affair. I have some fun stuff to give away, especially if you like signed YA books. :)

My bronchitis has still been hanging on a little bit, but this week was a lot better than last week. The family is all doing well and we finally got all the Christmas stuff packed away. We're also having a warmer weekend with lovely weather in the low 70s. It's my favorite kind with clear, sunny skies, perfect for being outside. 

This upcoming week is an unusual one for me. I have tour stops and promotions, but half are reviews. I'm happy about that because I have a ton of reading I'd like to get done and actually start getting ahead in posts again. I hope you stop back on by. :)

Here's what to expect this week:

There will be a Cover Reveal for Bryce by Natalie Decker and then two review briefs for Power of the Matchmaker by multiple authors and Breathe In by Jennifer Ellision.
Power of the Matchmaker Breathe In (Threats of Sky and Sea, #0.7)

I'll be linking to Top Ten Tuesday. It's a freebie week (meaning I get to choose whatever I want to post) and so I'm taking the time to finally post my favorite reads from last year. I can't believe I haven't done it yet, but I haven't. I need to finish my post of anticipated reads for this year as well, but another time.

I'll be a tour stop for Heart in a Box by Catherine Stine. Should be a fun post!

I'll be posting a promo for Jennifer Brown and the Dagger by Hamish Adourian.

I'll be posting my first Friday Favorites for some time and it'll be for Winter by Marissa Meyer. Obviously, I loved it. :) I'll also be a tour stop for Lost King by H.B. Moore.

I'll be a tour review stop for Just Let Go, a theatrical release. I've heard great things about this movie so far.

I have a fun stack of new books that I got over the past couple of weeks. I also added some ebooks (I haven't done those in a while, so I just did the recent ones). Here they are (linked to Amazon or Goodreads):

In case you missed this last week (I'll be sharing it through February): Prism Book Tours is looking for reviewers for Alethea Kontis' two newest fairy-tale-inspired books. Her Woodcutter Sisters Series that started these are some of my favorite books. These are much darker. Anyway, you don't have to be a blogger to review - you just have to post a review on Amazon. Check it out if you're interested!

I'm participating in this RAT (last day is Sunday and it'll be a wrap):

I hope you all have a fabulous week!
