This week was an emotional roller coaster with reading The Bronze Horseman trilogy. These three books have made me cry more than I can remember crying with any book. It’s an amazing, breathtaking, beautifully written series that is irrevocably unforgettable!

The Sunday Snapshot – Week of July 22nd

sundaysnapshot

I got a lot of reading done this week… 6 books! I am constantly in awe of the amazing stories out there that I continue to uncover. I decided to move some reads around last minute, and read Fear of Falling (which was stellar; working on my review now) sooner, therefore moving Rock Chick #2 to this coming week. I’m lucky to have an ARC of Wethering The Storm on my Kindle and I can’t wait to read what happens with Jake and Tru! For now, I’m back into the web of lies that is Caleb, Olivia and Leah! What a surprise to have this drop unexpectedly!

Enjoy this week’s newsletter, there is lots of news to share from this past week and remember, almost everything is clickable so you can either learn more about the book quickly or one-click it on Amazon!

MUST READ OF THE WEEK:

fading

  • Fading by E.K. BlairThis book was so powerful and well-written I was dumbfounded to find that this was E.K. Blair’s debut novel. It read so effortlessly as it took you on a painful journey towards finding hope and love after unspeakable tragedy. Just beautiful and powerful.

The Sunday Snapshot – Week of July 8th

sundaysnapshot

So last weekend I had the opportunity to attend Book Bash in Orlando. I can’t tell you just how fun it was to be there… to meet our favorite authors, get to know other bloggers and meet readers that are just as passionate about the books they read as I am. Some of the best conversations I had were in line waiting to get my books signed. I seriously loved geeking out over books with other people who became my insta-friends! 🙂 I had so much fun! The authors I met were incredibly nice and I felt really re-energized as a blogger to keep reading, discovering awesome new books and keep discussing it all with you… because at the end of the day, it’s about being lucky enough to have a community of people who share the same love of reading.
