Angel’s Monthly Wrap Up – February 2017

 

Monthly Updates

 

Well dang where has the month gone. I thought I had one more day, but nope Feb. 28th is the last day of the month. Geewhiz! I'm putting this post together at the very last minute. I've been battling a migraine for two days now. Those that get them, know how bad the can be and how hard it is to function and get things done. =/

 

Let's see this month I got a last minute visit from my parents. I usually mark off on my calendar the visiting time, so I can plan to not have posts (like tours) and just feature a review when family comes, but this time I had already booked the week. It turned out ok, but I didn't get to read. I miss reading when I can't do it. 

 

I've signed up to participate in a few blog hops this year, so keep an eye out for them. 

 

 

If you don't know I have several ways you can follow the blog. If you are an email subscriber you get exclusive giveaways every now and then. Their are perks to following Angel's Guilty Pleasures! All follow options are on the sidebar.

 

Let's get to what was featured here on the blog, new arrivals to my book shelf, and of course all the lovely books I got to read this month.

 

~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

The March Take Control of Your TBR starts on March 1st. I've picked 10 books to read for the challenge. The first 5 on my list are review copies I fell behind on, the next 4 are all library books I picked up, and the last is one I bought a long time ago, but never read. Come join the fun!!

 

My picks for this challenge to read:

 

A Very Jaguar Christmas by Terry Spear

Blood Freed by Traci Douglass  

Divine Awakening by Lia Davis

Otherworld Challenger by Jane Godman

Dark Divine by Lia Davis

Blood Cross by Faith Hunter

Midnight Marked by Chloe Neill

The Immortal Who Loved Me by Lynsay Sands

Goodreads is coming along. I picked my goal as 100 books to read and have read 36.

February in Review:
 
♦ I read 3 Short Horror Collections which was 2 too many, if you ask me. It threw me into a mini-slump ♦ 2 Horror Novels ♦ 1 Monster-porn ♦ 1 Scifi Erotica
 
♦ I'm on track for my Goodreads Challenge but I feel like I didn't read very much. I blame the tv and stress.
 
♦ Only three were audiobooks so I'm doing better than last month where all but one were audiobooks (ugh so much slacking was done in January).
 
♦ I continue to be a failure at DNFing. The only thing I skimmed/DNF'd were two short stories in Five Stories High because they weren't meant for me.

This month I'm going a little heavier on the romance because January was horrorific. Have you read any of 'em?

January in Review:
 
♦ 2 Horror Novels ♦ 1 Fantasy ♦ 1 Non-Fiction ♦ 2 Fiction
 
♦ Hmmm, this month in reviews doesn't look as bad as I thought it might. I always fear doing a monthly wrap-up post because I'll have to face the fact that I didn't get nearly as much done as I'd planned. But this looks better than the last few months of 2016 so I'm good with that.  
 
♦ With the exception of "The Secret Life of Souls", the rest of these were audiobooks! Ugh, I am failing on my promise to myself to take time out to actually read. 
 
♦ Also . . . so much for my year of the DNF! I failed on this promise to myself quite spectacularly in January when I spent nearly the entire month forcing myself to finish one book (Nightmares - still pondering that review) and by not DNFing A Little Life at any point. That thing was 700 pages of gloom. I still don't understand why I put myself through that.
 
♦ I see more crockpot cooking in my future, more working out in the morning and a helluva lot more of putting myself to bed early to get some pages read at night!

Angel’s Monthly Wrap Up – January 2017

 

Monthly Updates

 

The holidays ended well. I survived the family visiting. I was a bad bad girl. I kept my Christmas tree up until mid-January. I love the lights on the tree and it's so pretty that I don't want to take it down and put it away. My son wanted to keep it all year ^_^. He's only 5, so I get it. He was very sad to come home from school and find it was gone. We had a little cry going on. Now he wants to celebrate his birthday with my birthday. He was born in Nov. and I was born in July. He's very adamant that we share the July birthday. He is so adorable!

 

I ended up having to have an emergency root canal. OMG I didn't understand how intensive and how many times I have to go back to my dentist to get it all done. They finally got the temporary crown on Jan. 30th. I'll have to go back in two weeks to get the permeant crown and I hope it's all done after that. My mouth is not a happy camper!

 

The blog celebrated it's 3 Year Blogaversary this month. It's been fun sharing my love of books with everyone. I hope you've been enjoying the content and the new features. I've got another new feature coming in Feburary. I'm excited to see what everyone thinks. It's not going to be an every month thing, but something I'll do every now and then to share more about me and other book stuff.

 

Their are a few new things on the blog. On the top mean I've added a page for Recipes!; which you can easily look through and find the recipes featured. Also I re-named the page "Want to borrow from my eBook library?" to "Lending Library". You maybe wonder what the Lending Library is, it's a page dedicated to all the eBooks I own and I offer up to anyone who is intersted, a chance to borrow from my eBook library.  

 

 

 

I hit the year off fabulously with my reading challenges. I'm tackling the challenges and making a point on reading older books and ones on my TBR pile. I've been going over board with loving my library. Really can you love the library too much? Check out all the sexy books I've picked up in January to read from my library!

 

    

 Have you read any of these books featured? Did you like them?

 

Sign-Up's are open for the March Take Control of your TBR Pile hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer. I've added this challenge to all the other 2017 Challenges.

 

 

Want to see all the reading challenges I'm taking part in this year, 2017? Check them out HERE and Sign-Up is open all year long for the Library Love Challenge.

Angel’s Monthly Wrap Up – December 2016

 

I made it through the holidays. I hope everyone had a fabulous and joyous time! 2017 will be here tomorrow. WOW 2016 is over and what a fun year it was with several changes and events happing for my family and on the blog. 

 

Wishing everyone a safe and Happy New Year!

 

 

I picked up a planner for the blog. I was using google calendar for scheduling everything reviews, tours, and new releases, but it didn’t save all the new releases I was adding, so I wanted a planner to add new releases too. I like the Weekly spot for that. It was only $9 for the Blue Sky Planner. Not a bad price.

Owner/Review and mind behind Angel’s Guilty Pleasures. However what I am not is a writer. I apologize now for the grammatical and punctuation errors I make, because I know I’m going to make them. I’m a mother, wife, dog owner, animal, and book lover. My favorite animals are horses. As for reading I love all things paranormal & urban fantasy. My favorite shifters are dragons!
