Well happy Sunday! I hope you all had a fairly productive week, because I totally did not! Seriously! I only made it through one book! But that book was so fantastic that I’m 120% ok with the fact that it’s the only one I read this week! And if you follow me on twitter you’ve gone and pre-ordered it because you are sick of hearing me talk about it! And if you don’t follow me on twitter, you’re fixing that right now….. Now that you’ve taken care of that, on to the books!

 

I Read:

These Broken Stars

Sadly it doesn’t come out till December so you’ll have to wait to read my gushy review!

This week I plan to read:

Crown of Midnight HB White Trash Beautiful Ten Tiny Breaths The Bookstore HR

I’m really trying to buckle down and plow through some books this week. My goal for the month was 20 but I’ll be ecstatic if I reach 15! So I’m going to keep pushing myself…even though I’m so darn behind!

Also really quick, I just want to say thank you so much to everyone that was able to participate in the #ARCAugust twitter chat. I had so much fun, and the creepy Starbucks guy went away, and I had the best Chai tea ever, and..and.. I just love you all to pieces!

  1. I have no idea how I’m going to be able to reach that goal. But maybe I’ll do a massive pull-through this week! You’ll never know. I hope we both get to knock off some books off our lists.

  2. I had a goal of 10…so I’m failing on that hardcore. Maybe I’ll be able to pull off more with Bout of Books starting monday! Hopefully all of the twitter chats and challenges don’t keep me distracted for too long. I really hope you like Ten Tiny Breaths!

  3. Ugh I loved Bout of Books! I’m not participating this time, with ARC August being so time consuming, but I hope you have fun and hit that goal! I’m pretty sure the internet is going to explode when I start Ten Tiny Breaths! EVERYONE has read it and loved it!

  4. I can’t wait to read These Broken Stars now … it sounds AMAZING!!!! And I’ve heard great things about Ten Tiny Breaths — I hope you like it! πŸ™‚ Thanks for the chat last night!

  5. Thanks for coming to the chat! And for suffering through all our talk of chai tea and cheesecake! πŸ˜‰ These Broken Stars was definitely a winner, and a lot of my friends swear Ten Tiny Breaths is the best thing ever so I’m excited to start it.

  6. I’m moving my blog so I’ve been working on that more than reading. I only got through one this week. I’m doing Bout of Books but only have one ARC on my list. The others there are ones I’ve been dying to read, but I might do some switching out and substituting with ARCs.

    Sorry I missed the chat! I didn’t even open TweetDeck this week except for about 5 minutes last night, and I completely forgot about it.

  7. I’m so glad you loved These Broken Stars, since I got a netgalley copy and will be reading it pretty soon. I haven’t been making the progress I’d hoped in ARC August so far, but I’m still having fun.

  8. DAMN I feel like I’ve been lagging when it comes to reading books! I read around 10 each month, and even then, it’s when I have lots of free time XD I have to learn how to speed read, or at least read a bit faster so I don’t fall behind. Haha! Especially now that I’ve begun reading ARCs– the deadlines are quite daunting! Those are some great picks for books by the way πŸ™‚ Excited to read These Broken Stars!

  9. I’m still trying to get over the envy and jealousy of you reading These Broken Stars (in a good way, you know that!) and I’m so getting it in hardcover!! That doesn’t mean I’m not gonna try and get my hands on an ARC somehow though!

    I wish I could have been up for the chat!

    Oh and btw Crown of Midnight is INTENSE! So maybe read the other ARCs first in case you also get another big case of book hangover? Just saying…

  10. I keep hearing that CoM is intense! Maybe I will read something else first? I can’t handle another book hangover so soon ! I’d never get stuff done lol.

    Keep trying! Email the publisher, fill out that form on their website! Show them you want it and will promote it and cross your fingers. πŸ™‚

  11. I am so eager to start These Broken Stars. So happy you loved it! Sometimes a book is so good you just have to mourn it being over and not read anything else for a bit. I’m sure you’ll make up for it this week.

  12. Thanks! I’m hoping I don’t run into anymore book hangovers but I keep hearing that Crown of Midnight is intense too so….yeah lol. But I’m going to push through! I really want to hit my goal! πŸ™‚

  13. I haven’t read These Broken Stars yet (though I have it waiting for me to read and review) but I did read White Trash Beautiful and I really liked it. It was heartbreaking and beautiful and I spent far too much of my time crying in that book. They all look like great books, though! Enjoy your reading. πŸ™‚

  14. Aww I’m going to cry?!! Well at least I’ve been warned lol! And um….no pressure or anything but you should totally drop everything and get to These Broken Stars…I’ll pause the world until you finish.

  15. Crown of Midnight was awesome. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
