Books Received 
In an attempt to be more consistent and not do so many posts, I am combining my reading pile post with my books received post (this is known by many names, and is self-explanatory). 

I probably will take a break from purchasing books for right now. There aren't any sales going on and I want to work through some of the titles I already have. Plus, some of what I've purchased will help me work through some series. Which is an unspoken reading goal of mine. I started this in November and I've made through 2 series so far. Between review books, tour books and series I have enough on my reading plate for a while. But for now, this is what I got this week:

What I am Currently Reading:

This past week was the first week of classes so I tried to focus on getting homework finished before reading. This worked somewhat, but in the end it was slow reading. I will be finishing up Redemption by Susannah Sandlin sometime today. After that I will be reading Absolution.  

What I will be reading:
After Absolution I am not sure whether I will read Pheobe Pope and the Year of the Four or Wings of Arian.  WOA is book 1, and I have Wings of Tavea coming for a tour. Phoebe Pope is also a Tour Book.  Maybe I will just wait and see what I'm in the mood for?

What I wish I was reading right now:
Last week I was content to be reading what I was currently reading. This week I am too, but I've been waiting so long to get my hands on a copy of Zohrah the Windseeker, that I kind of want to read it right now. It looks like it'll be a pretty (or relatively) quick read. Maybe I can sneak it in while I decide on what book to read after Absolution?

Netgalley Adds
After I got Seven Princes by John R. Fultz, I was approved for Seven Kings by John R. Fultz, which is book 2! I like not having to wait for the second in books, especially ones I now I'm gonna love. (Not sure why I'm so confident that I will, and yes I will be really disappointed if I don't.) I do have a couple of pending requests, but we'll wait to see if I'm approved. 

Well, that's all from my desk! Leave a link or mention in the comments what you're reading this week!!

Always Shine,
