Nomi’s Weekly Wrap Up #96

Nomi’s Weekly Wrap Up is a combined meme with the Sunday Post hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer, Bought, Borrowed and Bagged hosted by Braine @ Talk Supe and Stacking The Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. I’ll share news, post a recap of the past week and tell you what will be happening on my blog in the week ahead. I will also tell you about the books and goodies that I have managed to pick up.
It has been a pretty quiet last week of the school holidays. The kids went to my mother’s place for a few days, so it was unusually quiet around the house! When they returned, all fighting resumed and I realised how nice the peace was! Lol

I didn’t really jump on the computer at all though, I enjoyed some down time, and will be back at it this week, I’m sure!

Oh, I nearly forgot… Another distinction in my proofreading course *fist pump* Two down, one to go!!

    Very nice! All totally new to me! Hope you enjoy each and every one of them!

    Here's my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  7. It is nice and quiet when the kids are away and I usually miss them then they come home and it remember how much I loved the peace and quiet ;)

    Good job on your distinction!
    Enjoy all your new reads and have a great week Naomi

  8. I really enjoyed Breathe by Abbi Glines. Her books get more or more graphic after that book in that series. I have a lower tolerance than most though I think. Also, I enjoyed Lick by Kylie Scott...I need to get 2 and 3. Going to check NetGalley for # 3 now. Have a great week!

  9. I love every single book you got this week, Naomi! you're my bookish soul mate! :)

  10. Deeper was fantastic! I just finished the sequel of Deeper and it was as equally awesome. Congrats on finishing a proof read!

  11. Bookworm BrandeeJuly 14, 2014 at 1:19 AM

    Congrats on the distinction! That's just awesome!! I giggled over the peace you missed once the kids were home...I know EXACTLY what you mean. *ha* You picked up some great looking books. I have Deeper on my kindle to read...hopefully soon. And I've always wanted to read more of AGlines. Yay for Lead! I know how much you love that series. I'm gonna read it...I really am! Oh and double yay for Revenge Bound. That's another book I have waiting on me (Tattoo Thief) and I want to get to it really soon too. You just add too many books to my tbr, Naomi. I can't keep up! *hahaha*

  12. It looks like you're going to have an angsty week, that is if you're planning to read these soon! Enjoy it all! Oh and I have RYork's Deeper too, I heard that one's good. I probably should check it out next time I get a contemporary phase

  13. I got No Limits at BEA. Lori Foster writes amazing male characters. Robin York's book looks interesting.


  14. No Limits..woot. I read the novella and it has me eager to crack my copy open. I remember when the kids went away. I would miss them until the first squabble and then think..why did I miss them? LOL

  15. Oh. Deeper. That's a good one. Enjoy.

  16. deeper sounds good! hope you enjoy and have a great coming week.

  17. Yay congrats on your class. Oh can't wait for your stop on the Thrive tour.

  18. Great haul, Naomi. Hope you enjoy Breathe. I will be keeping an eye out for your review on that one. Congrats on the second distinction. I'm sure you will do equally as well on the last assignment. Yeah, the holidays are over and the kids are back at school. How quite the house is. Now I can get back to some serious writing.

  19. Jenea WhittingtonJuly 14, 2014 at 11:37 AM

    Great job on your class. Enjoy all the new books. I look forward to seeing what you think of Deeper. I am hoping to read it soon. :)

  20. I have been slightly nudged to get Deeper, so I am looking forward to it!

  21. I am keen to read No Limits. I grabbed the Novella too... So excited to get into them!

  22. Kylie Scott is just awesome! And Lead was fantastic... had to jump straight into it!

  23. I know I am going to love it! I am a sucker for these kinds of reads!

  24. I will, for sure! Thanks Jessica!

  25. That was exactly how I felt!
    And thanks Michelle! I will have a great week!

  26. I have loved all books in the Stage Dive series! Those guys are awesome. I don't know what I'll do when Ben's book is done!!

  27. I have heard great things about it, so I had to get it!

  28. Tell me about it! I know I am going to visit blogs today and add a heap more.... but I know it'll be worth it!!
    We should read Deeper together, then we can chat about it!!
    And Lead was great... the dark horse who doesn't think he can be loved.... sweet Jimmy!!
    And Revenge Bound... a little darker than the others... I love it! Get onto that series!!

  29. I know! So many books! I have read 4.5 already!! Getting there!!

  30. I'm keen to read Cannon's book. I liked him in the original series.

  31. I'm keen to read the novella soon... but I had to get a copy of Cannon's book!
    Yes... I love them to death, but the kids drive me nuts!!

  32. So I've heard! Keen to get into it!

  33. I've heard great things about Deeper... hope to get into it soon!

  34. Haha!! I want to read it very soon too! Oh, the must reads are growing!

  35. Yay you!! I hope you do get a lot of writing done now.
    My house is pretty quiet, but I am catching up on comments now... I need to visit blogs too... sigh, never ending!!

  36. I'm eager for that one... I've been nudged through the computer to get on that one!! lol

  37. I hate when a series I love makes it's way through all the main characters. I just want the authors to keep writing from a different person. I mean we meet new people with each book so surely they can just keep going, right?

  38. I agree!! I hate it when a series ends!! lol

  39. Thanks Sherry!! All will go well, I'm sure!

  40. Congrats on your distinction! Sounds like your class is going really well! Sorry I've been missing for a while, but I'm back now! :-)

  41. Bookworm BrandeeJuly 16, 2014 at 2:13 AM

    YES, we should definitely read Deeper together! That'd be fun! When will you have room in your schedule??

  42. Yay *celebrations* congrats on your distinction.. you are awesome!!!!! Nice haul Naomi :)

    Chanzie @ Mean Who You Are.

  43. That's ok, I've been missing too!! And Thanks!!

  44. Congrats with the class. Happy reading for your nice collection.
