Weekly Roundup and the Week to Come 07APR13

Giveaway:
Hopefully you saw this but I finally posted my 500 followers giveaway! The prize is $20 at The Book Depository so it's international and is not limited just to followers. Be sure to get your entry in as it ends April 13.

Personal:
My eyes are continuing to heal and I'm still trying to adjust to no glasses. I still reach for them on my nightstand when I wake up and it'll probably be a while before I stop. I also got a haircut this week so am enjoying my new look.

Reading:
I've been in a bit of a reading and blogging funk. I have all these books and I want to read them but have had trouble concentrating. I also have several reviews to work on but have lacked motivation to write. I think it's partly the eyes but also a newish passion for being more active and itchiness-I want to get up and go and I can't read at the same time, alas!

Week to Come:
Red Handed by Matt Kindt, a mystery in graphic novel format
Shadowlands by Kate Brian, serial killer in YA!
Exile by Rebecca Lim, highly anticipated sequel to Mercy
The Rules by Stacey Kade, cool start to a new YA trilogy
The Tragedy Paper by Elizabeth Laban, YA contemporary set at a boarding school
Daughter of Jerusalem by Joan Wolf, adult biblical retelling about Mary Magdalene

What are you up to? Happy reading!

  2. I understand about the restlessness! Having a week off blogging was nice and it made me wonder whether I should cut back to five posts a week. We'll see. Maybe we both just have spring fever!
    Glad your eyes are doing better and SO excited that you got Bitter Kingdom too :)

    1. I've thought about cutting back to 5 posts too but there are just so many books I want to read and talk about! Not sure I'm ready for that change yet.

  3. Too bad you've been in a reading and blogging funk. I've dealt with that a lot this past year. It's hard to get out of. I found that taking a break really did help.

    1. I'm thinking I might take a break as I am diving into some real-life activities this spring, which will shorten the amount of time I can devote to blogging. I just feel like I've made some good strides and I don't want to break it.
