Hi everyone, how are you? I hope you are doing great and having a wonderful weekend. Last week was a good week for me. I made an account on NetGalley and got a book I requested. Thank you to all fellow book bloggers that have given me awesome advice about the site and how to use it. I’ve been extra careful when it comes to requesting books and only requested two books so far.
I’m used to buying books based on recommendations from my trusted book bloggers and prefer that way. I do enjoy NetGalley but requesting books that weren’t recommended by book bloggers actually terrifies me. I’m afraid I’ll end up reading and reviewing the books I don’t like and getting burned out at the end because of it.
I’m having a short trip to my hometown to visit my parents and sisters next week and so excited about it. As you know, my little sister is getting married in a few months so I’m going to help her with some stuff. I hope I still can read and blog as much during the trip though but I know it’s going to be hard.

Books I just received and purchased:
I got Claim and Protect by Rhenna Morgan from NetGalley and Ruckus by L.J. Shen by the publisher. I just purchased Crow (Boston Underworld #1) and Reaper (Boston Underworld #2) by A. Zavarelli, Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers and Misconduct by Penelope Douglas (I’ve just purchased) based on the recommendations of my book blogging friends.
Books I’m planning to read this month:
I’m going to finish The Others series by Anne Bishop. I still have three books left and am planning to read all of them before the end of this month.
I’m planning to buy some books that have been on my radar such as The Clover Chapel by Devney Perry and Plus One by Aleatha Romig.
And I can’t wait to read Until It Fades by K.A. Tucker. I already pre-ordered the book and can’t wait to read it next month. I hope it will be live sooner though.

That is all from me. What are your all-time and latest favorites? 😀
