Weekly Update #226, I survived the first week...

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 ReviewerTynga's Reviews for Stacking the Shelves and Mailbox Monday showcasing the books I added to my shelves or Kindle this week, and It's Monday! What Are You Reading? hosted by Kathryn @ Book Date.

If you stopped by last week you might remember that my kids started school this last week. The first week or two are always crazy as we get back into routine and the kids get to know their teachers and their expectations. It also forces me to get back into a routine and I have to say that I am sorry to see summer and all the fun it brings go. It felt really quiet this week when the kids were gone, but I'll get used to it and also enjoy getting to come and go and not worry about the kids during the day. It also means more time for Instagram, answering comments, and reading (hopefully).

As far as books go, here's what to expect on the blog this week:

This August I'm participating in Proper Romance's Romance Awareness Month and it's going to be a blast! You'll see a couple of posts spotlighting this line of books every week this month.
You'll also be seeing these books this week:

I've been visiting NetGalley too much because I grabbed too many books this week. I haven't been visiting the site too often this summer and there were a bunch from some of my favorite authors and then others that just looked or sounded good. Here's what I grabbed:

My monthly giveaway is also spotlighting Romance Awareness Month with the Proper Romance line (thanks to Shadow Mountain Publishing). Check out the giveaway to win three of their books: 

I've been hosting a meme this year called Can't-Wait Wednesday that is taking over for my Waiting on Wednesday posts since the host, Jill over at Breaking the Spine, went inactive in August 2016. You're welcome to join in or link up your Waiting on Wednesday posts each week. Find out more here.

The Instagram challenge, #WishfulWonder, that Rissi over at Finding Wonderland and I host is almost over for July. I posted the prompts for August here and am including it below. Feel free to participate at any time, be it a day or two or more.
Those of you who have followed my blog for a while will have seen that I host an annual read-a-thon, Tackle Your TBR. This year's is coming up and will run September 11th through 24th. You can find out more here.

Let me know how your week was.
