Week to Come 14APR13

Happy Sunday! Hope you are having a good time reading and living your life :)

Giveaway Winner:

I drew the winner for my giveaway; it's...


Congratulations-we've been in contact and your choice has been ordered!

Thank you so much to everyone who follows whether through GFC or other means, to everyone who has ever stopped by, to everyone who has ever left a comment-this blog means so much to me and you all really make it worth it! Thank you and I look forward to many more years in the blogosphere.

Personal:

I am having so much fun with my softball league. Sure, we're 3-4 but we're actually ranked third in the league because most of the teams aren't that good. And I'm having so much fun with my coworkers, seeing who can bat and catch (hint: not me).

My eyes are doing quite well. They still feel a bit strained on occasion and driving at night is not an ideal situation but I'm really happy with my decision.

I'm hoping to have some good time to read today as my week is getting busy again. The goal is to stay on track with my six reviews a week but I don't know if that will happen. I'll keep you posted.

Week to Come: mostly YA, all 2013 releases

The Ultra Violets by Sophie Bell-a middle-grade superhero novel

Breath by Jackie Morse Kessler-completes her Riders of the Apocalypse tetralogy

The Namesake by Steven Parlato-a YA contemporary dealing with grief

Life After Theft by Aprilynne Pike-a YA paranormal contemporary retelling of the classic novel The Scarlet Pimpernel

How Zoe Made Her Dreams (Mostly) Come True by Sarah Strohmeyer-a hilarious YA story set at an amusement park

Taken by Erin Bowman-actually haven't read this yet but it's on today's agenda

  3. I wish I could play softball. I mean, I could, but I'm terrible at it.

    Very curious to hear what you think about Taken, Life After Theft and How Zoe etc.etc. I had complicated feelings about all those. And one I still haven't finished.

    1. Oh, I'm definitely the worst on the team (I have not managed to get a hit but I've been walked a few times).

      I had generally positive feelings for all three but will delve more into them later this week.

  5. Your week sounds great! I used to play softball in high school. I loved it. I would play on a rec team now if I didn't have back issues. It's such a fun game to me.

    1. I had never played before but have been surprised by how much fun I've had, especially considering our losing record. I've loved getting to know people a bit better.

  6. I loved The Scarlet Pimpernel so I am eager to hear what you thought of Life After Theft.

    I'm glad your eyes are continuing to improve and I hope you will be able to get caught up on all you want to do. Have a great week!

    1. I keep meaning to read The Scarlet Pimpernel but haven't so I won't be able to compare the two books unfortunately, something I wish I could do :(

      Working on the reading!
