Weekly Round Up #51 : The One Where December is Busy Busy


Here's my weekly roundup. I'm linking to The Sunday Post hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer and #IMWAYR hosted by Kathryn at the Book Date.

 The Sunday Post Meme

Please leave a link to your blog (if you have one) in your comment or make sure your Disqus profile has your address so that I can visit you back! 

I try to link all book covers to Goodreads or to my review (if there is one) which is in turn linked to Goodreads.


Well, my first week in December was a busy one, both on and off the blog! One of my horses came down with colic so that was an eventful evening. Luckily she pulled through and is back to full health now but it was scary there for a while!

I still haven't finished putting up our Christmas tree - it's hard with a three year old! Her attention span is not conducive to putting up and decorating a 9 foot tree!!! But at least we're doing it together and getting into the Christmas spirit and it's not looking too bad in the meantime.


I participated in two book blitzes last week - one for a series that I am super excited about that I think everyone should read (The Ryogan Chronicles) and one for a box set of The Fourth Element Trilogy that I was excited by. There is still a giveaway running on first blitz I mentioned however the second one is over already. You can however still buy the trilogy on sale as I write this!

I also managed to link up with the State of the ARC meme again and our regular Blog Squad feature published part 30 on Friday.

What I read:

Sea of StrangersEverless
Sea of Strangers was an excellent second book in the Ryogan trilogy and it's made me super excited for the third book! Please write fast Miss Cameron! I'll be reviewing this one on my blog on the 29th for a blog tour stop.

Everless was an ARC from Hachette and my review will be up soon!

What I am currently reading:


Winter27015399

Buddy reading Winter and sinking into a re-read of the Kingmaker Trilogy before I get to the ARC of the third book! 

Up Next:

Breath of FireHeart On Fire
I need to continue my re-read and then get to the ARC - this book is publishing early in Jan!

New Arrivals:

Nothing again this week! I'm hoping to catch up with the ARCs that I already have so I can start the new year on a good note here.... #dontletmerequestmorebooks


And that's my week! How did yours go?
