Showcase Sunday hosted by Books, Biscuits & Tea,  Sunday Post hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer & Stacking the Shelves host by Tynga’s Reviews.

What I bought for this week:

Deadlocked (Sookie Stackhouse, #12) Voices of Dragons The List

1. Deadlocked (Sookie Stackhouse #12) by Charlaine Harris – I finally picked up a copy but I am kind of afraid to read it.

2. Voices of Dragons by Carrie Vaughn – I came across it at the used bookstore and I thought it sounded interesting…

3. The List by Siobhan Vivian – I brought this one home and my daughter promptly borrowed it. then she gave it back. Apparently one of the girls says a lot of bad words and there was a few other things that happened. So my daughter did not enjoy it.

What I received for review:

League of Strays Pushing the Limits

2. Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry

What an I reading:

Telesa - The Covenant Keeper

Telesa – The Covenant Keeper by Lani Wendt Young

It is turning out to be such a good book! Look for me giving away a copy of it this week.

What is going on this week:

Somehow I have 3 giveaways planned for this week. I don’t know why I did it that way but be sure to drop by and see what is up for grabs!

We received some good news that we will be finally closing on our old house this week! We are so excited and can’t wait to be able to move on.

Also if you could spare a moment and vote for me and my dog Enya we would appreciate it!  Go HERE to find out more. Thanks!

Goals:

I started out have an awesome week and then things slowed down a bit. I ended up finishing seven books:

1. The Last Seer and the Tomb of Enoch by Ashland Menshouse – review and giveaway coming this week.

2. Once Bitten, Forever Burned by Eve Langlais and Stacey Kennedy – it was ok… just ok.

3. Embrace the Night (Night #1) by Crystal Jordan – Slow at times but overall I liked it.

4. Lothaire (Immortals After Dark #12) by Kresley Cole – It was so good I stayed up until 2:00 in the morning trying to finish it! It… was… so… good!!!

5. Woodrose Mountain (Hope’s Crossing #2) by RaeAnne Thayne – I just loved it! See my review HERE.

6. The Mating (Law of the Lycans #1) by Nicky Charles – I accidently started reading this and couldn’t stop. When I found out that the next three in the series are free and I went ahead and picked them up to read. I really enjoyed it!

7. Brawn (New Species #5) by Laurann Dohner – I am a sucker for this series! It reminds me so much of Lora Leigh’s Breed series.

So for this week I am going to try and read at least six books. I have 5 books I have to finish and then that will give me one more to read just for the heck of it!

This year I have read 143 books ( 37,802 pages) towards my goal of 325 books.

That is it for me this week. What did you receive or read this week? Leave me a link so I can drop by and check it out!

    deadlocked was a nice read but not as the others. It was mainly my problem, I like it but it’s like a big novella. I would be curious to know what you think about it. Happy reading!

    here is mine

    Sookie! I have a lot of catching up to do with this series, but I loved that 🙂 I received Pushing the Limits too, can’t wait to see what it is about!
    Lots of lovely covers here! Great stack, enjoy them, Dani 🙂

  4. Heidi says:

    Wow! I am jealous that you can read so many books in a week. I just don’t have enough time! Some great titles you picked up as well. I am seeing that League of Strays book around so I am going to research it. Congrats on your house closing, that must be a big relief.

  5. Michelle says:

    Why are you afraid to read Deadlocked? I still need to read the one before it so I’m a little behind on the storyline. Seems like you got some great books this week!!

    Thanks for stopping by 🙂

    • Dani says:

      Some of my friends have read Deadlocked and from what they have said it just wasn’t as good as they had hoped it would be. 🙁

  6. Jordon says:

    Wow that’s a lot of books to read in one week! I only just finished the first book of the Sookie Stackhouse series, I already want to read the next one!

    Awesome haul, so many books!

    🙂

    I wish I had League of Strays like you do! I feel like I’m seeing it everywhere but my own mailbox LOL so I’m going to try to get my hands on a copy too — I have a feeling it’s going to be interesting! 😉 Plus, I read the List before too and I thought it actually had a pretty neat concept. Hopefully you like it too!

    Awesome Sunday post, Dani! Have an amazing reading week! <3

  8. Rachel @ Booktastic Reviews says:

    The List looks really good – it’s definetly a wishlist read for me! I hope you enjoy it! 😀

  9. Marlene @ Reading Reality says:

    I can’t wait to see what you think about Deadlocked. I know I’m going to read it. But I’m not sure when. I’ve enjoyed the series, but I may wait until next year when the last book comes out.
    Thanks for stopping by my STS.

  10. Celine says:

    I’ve seen The List around, but am not sure what to think of it. I hope you enjoy it, I’m looking forward to see what you think of it (:
