On Vacation.

I'm sorry I have have not been posting these past couple of weeks. But I have a good reason for being so absent.
I have been getting ready for my husband to finally come home this weekend! Well, not home home...home for a two week R&R. Then he heads back off for the rest of his deployment.
But after 8 and a half months of not seeing each other, 2 weeks sounds like heaven.

I just wanted to post a little note letting everyone know I will be back and posting regularly the beginning of March. Hopefully I don't miss much while I am gone.

See y'all in two weeks!

Waiting On Wednesday (#5)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Expected publication: May 1st 2012 by Rhemalda Publishing

"When Naomi Jensen is kidnapped, it takes her parents two days to realize she’s missing. Escape isn’t high on her list of priorities when all she has to return to is an abusive boyfriend and parents who never paid much attention to her. For the first time in her life she’s part of a family—even if it is a family of criminals. But she’s still a captive. In a desperate attempt to regain some control in her life, Naomi embarks on a dangerous plan to make one of her kidnappers think she’s falling in love with him. The plan works too well, and when faced with the chance to escape, Naomi isn’t sure she wants to take it. "-GoodReads

I can't wait for this book. I am very curious to see how the author tackles Naomi 'wanting' to stay kidnapped and trying to convince one of her kidnappers she's in love with him. Will her life really seem terrible enough that I will completely understand her wanting to stay away? That is my biggest question.
So fellow readers, what are you waiting on this week?

In My Mailbox (#13)-Adr3nalin3 Author Event Edition

In My Mailbox is a bookish meme created by the wonderful Kristi over at The Story Siren for bloggers to feature books we got over the past week, either bought, borrowed, or received in the mail. Make sure to go check out her main post.

Yesterday the Adr3nalin3 Book Tour stopped at my local Barnes & Noble. It seems like there are hardly any bookish events in my part of Texas so I wasn't going to miss it...even though I was a bit sniffly with a cold. I downed some medicine and went.

The book tour featured:
(I say authors because Ivy Adams is actually 3 women)

I always get so nervous meeting authors, but they were so incredibly nice and my nerves settled quickly. Tracy Deebs even made some wonderful chocolate cookies to give to everyone. And while they waited for people to arrive they talked to me like I was already their friend. YA authors are the best people.
I picked a copy of each of their books and they were all kind enough to sign them.


 And they gave me some sway:


    (Isn't this nail kit cutest thing ever?!)
 A lot of it is signed so keep an eye out for some upcoming giveaways cause I'll be throwing some of this stuff in with whatever is being given away.

I also made some swaps on a couple of weeks ago and my books finally came in.
I recieved:
(I'm on a bit of a contemp kick right now)
And last, but certainly not least., I was super lucky when I went to Half Price Books earlier this week. I had a bunch of stuff to sell so it was taking them a while to price the books so I went browsing in the YA section (though I shouldn't have...I'm trying to read more of what I already have and buy less), BUT! I stumbled upon a copy of Bloodlines by Richelle Mead. I adore the Vampire Academy series so I was so excited to get the first in the spin-off series. Though I am still nervous to read it, but I am going to give it a shot.

So what awesomeness did you get in your mailbox this week?
