That was my week! I went to the gym four days this week (win!), and I feel great. Just tired, but a good kind of tired. I had a fairly good work week, so life is okay!


  1. Blood Veil and Blood and Sand are on my wish list. Way to go with the gym work out and love those purple furry socks. :)

  2. Sounds like a good week and you got some good books so all is good. :)

  3. Ooh nice ones!! Those are new to me reads! I hope you enjoy them all! Blood and Sand is one that's on my watch list! It sounds like an intriguing read. Hope you have a great reading week ahead!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so stop by then if you can!

    Have a GREAT day!

  4. Yay to a good work week and working out four times! The good-tired is the best kind of tired. :) I'm making sure I've read your review on Blood and Sand! Have a great next week Alyssa!

  5. Yay on 4 days of the gym that is awesome! A Scandal by Any Other Name by Kimberly Bell looks interesting! I hope you enjoy that one! Have a great week!

  6. A Scandal by Any Other Name looks SO good. I'm such a sucker for those historical romances with the pretty dresses on the cover. <3

  7. Glad it was a good week. :) Blood and Sand looks fun.

  8. Hooray for going to the gym! I cannot, for the life of me, do that. Maybe a muay thai session every other month is enough for me. XD LOVE the book featured in your IG post--it's so pretty!! <3 Have an awesome week, Alyssa! <3

  12. Can't wait to read Blood Veil!

    You go girl! I don't like to exercise at all (not surprising at all, I'm sure), but I do hope to get cleared to at least start walking soon.

  13. I love Faeries! Your handbook looks quite lovely.

  14. I am going to have to get my hands on Blood Veil. I really enjoyed the first book as well. Good for you for going to the gym! Have a great week!

  15. What a great group of books you have here. I hope you really enjoy Blood Veil. I still need to grab up book one though. :) Love the covers though. I love grey backdrops with colored lettering. I haven't read Kimberly Bell but I have been wanting to pick her up.

  16. Blood Veil sounds really good, I just purchased the first book Blood Guard. I've been in a paranormal mood lately, and I can't go wrong with vampires ;)

    Going to the gym... ugh! Good for you, my plan was to start running again in the New Year, so far I'm almost a month behind getting started.

  17. Four times at the gym in one week! Sheesh, I feel accomplished when I make it there M/W/F. 😂 Enjoy your bookish goodies Alyssa -- I'm quite excited to hear your take on that Megan Erickson title.

  18. Gosh, yay for gym four times :D That is AWESOME. <3 You are the best Alyssa ;) And yay for getting some gorgeous looking books too. <3 Happy reading sweetie :)

  19. You rock!!! I need to try to start working out again
