What's Happening #6 + RCC Update #2

What's Happening is a weekly recap post every Thursday or Friday, in which I talk about what I'm reading, writing, blogging about, and what's been going on in my life. It takes the place of my former weekly recap post, Update Thursday.

Happy Friday, guys! It's been a quiet couple of weeks here on the blog. As some of you already know, I have a back injury that's been preventing me from spending much time on the computer. I didn't do a weekly update last week so I'm doubling up, but since there were quite a few days where I didn't have anything scheduled, there aren't a ton of posts to catch up on. 

 
The Water Witch by Juliet Dark {GoodReads}
Sacred Celtic Places by Iain Zaczek {GoodReads}
A Little Bit Cupid by Jennifer Shirk {GoodReads}
The Archived by Victoria Schwab {GoodReads}
Poison Princess by Kresley Cole {GoodReads}



Forever, Interrupted by Taylor Jenkins Reid {GoodReads}
None of the Regular Rules by Erin Downing {GoodReads}
Friends 'Til the End by David Wild {GoodReads}



I reviewed Mind Games by Kiersten White and gave it 3.5 stars

I posted the signups for The Spring of Sarah Dessen Reading Challenge. It's pretty lonely - nobody has signed up yet! *makes sad, pleading face*

I reviewed The Water Witch by Juliet Dark and gave it 3.5 stars

I reviewed Notorious Nineteen by Janet Evanovich and gave it 4 stars



Well...February is turning out to be a looong month. The three and a half weeks since I hurt my back feel like three and a half months. I'm getting way behind in everything (I haven't touched WAITING FOR THE STORM all month but I need to get started on final revisions so I can start sending it out to reviewers and get working on a blog tour). I don't want to sound like a whiner because I know there are people who live with pain every single day and who have it far worse than I do, and I know how lucky I am, I just get frustrated at times. I'm finally starting to get caught up in emails and I'm hoping to schedule a bunch of blog posts for the next couple weeks. I've gotten quite a bit of reading done, so that's one plus.

I've been watching a lot of FRIENDS. It's my go-to show when I need a pick-me-up. It's always been my favourite show; I own all 10 seasons and have watched them countless times, but not for a few years. It just never gets old and never fails to make me laugh.

I've read 3 review books so far and my pile keeps growing. I've added another 5 review books this week alone but I'm not going to add them to my list since there are already more than I can get through in the next week and a bit. I'm hoping to at least finish the two I'm currently reading before the end of the month.
What's new with you? What are you reading? Are you planning on watching the Oscars this Sunday?
Have a great weekend!

  2. I'm glad you're catching up on things finally. :) I feel like I've been falling behind on the blog with everything going on IRL. But I'm trying to focus! I really need to get all of March put together and scheduled. It's going to be a busy month for me otherwise. :P

  3. Continue to do what you can to get better, please! Both because I want you to be/feel better, and because I MISS YOUUUUU.

    I am so behind, too. I need to spend LOTS of time today or Sunday scheduling posts for next month's contemporary YA event. I have them all written, just have to format them and such. *sigh*

    I signed up for your Sarah Dessen challenge! I own 5 of her books, so I'm aiming to read them all. Does a re-read count? I read Just Listen a few years ago, but have been wanting to re-read.

    Love ya!

  4. I started reading The Archived but had to return it today before finishing it. Hopefully, I'll finish it one day, haha. I totally know what you mean about being behind. Glad you're getting caught up though!

  5. None of the Regular Rules has the weirdest cover. The kiss just looks weird...I don't know. Anywho, I'm sorry about your back. Enjoy Friends and feel better!

  6. Nice to see you back on the internet stage. Still patiently waiting for the announcement that you'll be attending Dragon*Con.

  7. I'm so sorry to hear about the pain you are in with your back Marie, I hope it eases up for you soon so you are back to feeling ok.

    I am so far behind on my review pile it's crazy! But I'm not stressing about it or taking on too much anymore; just going with the flow and trying to enjoy what I read and blog about :)

    I can't wait to see what you think of The Archived, I am dying to get hold of it & I really enjoyed Poison Princess.
