GEN’S LIFE HAPPENINGS

I’m doing this post very late and I’m so tired so I won’t post pictures of my week.

  • I went to a VW car show with my family and we had such a great time! It’s rare for my grandpa to go out with us so when he says yes, we immediately get ready and leave haha
  • A friend of mine invited me to go to the mall with her (one that’s almost 2 hours away) and we hung out and really had a great time and we bonded a lot!
  • Oh, and I did a thing…. I joined a gym. And the contract is for 2 years… Yeah, I’m a crazy person but oh well. I will be committed to this because the penalty for not staying the 2 years is $200 so yeah… I’m committed haha

 

GEN’S HAUL

for review

  it's always the husband

I wasn’t going to request Where Good Girls Go to Die, but Imani from Enamored Reads kept insisting I should so when I finally read the synopsis, I was in! I’ll be diving into it very soon! / I got sent an eARC for Purple Hearts and it sounds like a really breath-taking novel so I’m all for it. / I got sent an unsolicited copy of It’s Always the Husband and yay! I can’t wait to dive into it! The cover and synopsis have me excited.

I got 35 books! My mom has a patient who used to work at a publishing house in NY. She’s retired and has LOTS of books. Last week, she gave me around 15 books (forgot to share that on the weekly recap). This week, she gave me 35 books!!! And apparently, will give me more… I may die of happiness.

 

GEN’S WEEK IN READING

   

What a wonderful week in reading! All of these were 4 to 5 stars! The Animal Under the Fur was beyond badass and I absolutely loved it (review)! / This Is Reckless was so good and left me in need of the following book! / Letters to the Lost and It Happens All the Time were both heart-shattering novels that I know will stick with me for a long time.

 

GEN’S CURRENTLY READING

So I don’t really know what the hype about this is… I just don’t get it. I keep reading hoping it gets better but it’s so bleh. My eyes could be permanently rolled.

GEN’S WATCHING…

EVERYTHING I EXPECTED AND MORE!!! Everybody needs to watch this show!

  • Yay for joining a gym. I will say I was always the worst when I was a member and never went. Hope you have better luck with that lol. I am on the fence with Purple Hearts but I think I am going to see if I can get it. Wow 35 books that is awesome. Looks like a great reading week. I can’t wait to watch 13 Reasons Why. Have a great week!!

  • Grace Fonseca

    Awesome haul of books this week. That was very nice of that woman to give you that many books. I hope you love all of your new goodies.

    Grace @ Books of Love

  • Wow! 35 books? That’s insane! I hope you enjoy them, and can recommend a few in the future. Get some audio books for the gym. They will be a great way to pass the time if you use the treadmill. Have a wonderful week.

  • I feel like everyone is talking about 13 Reasons Why! One of my bloggy friends didn’t really enjoy it but she also said she hadn’t read the book. I haven’t read the book either, and I don’t have Netflix, so I am safe. 😀

    Have a wonderful weekend, Genesis! =)

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

    • Many are saying that they should go in blind with the show. I think either is fine (having read the book or not). YOU SHOULD STILL WATCH IT!!!!

  • Good luck with the gym! Even the money wasn’t motivation enough for me to go. I hope you do much better than I did. Great haul. Enjoy all your new books 🙂

    My STS

  • oh yay good for you joining a gymn….and the penalty clause…that is good motivation!! Hope you meet all your fitness goals.

  • Loved Letters To The Lost! 🙂 Such a good book. Well done for joining the gym!

  • So glad to hear that you are on a good book streak! I love when that happens! And yayyy for the free 35 books! That’s amazing! So happy for you! That was so nice of her to give them all to you. I hope your gym membership goes well. I’ve been thinking about getting a family membership so I can sign my daughter up for swim lessons….and I also want to work out, of course. lol! Hope you have a great week, and that you enjoy all of your new books

  • literaryfeline

    That is great that you joined a gym. I am too self-conscious, I’m afraid. I do need to get back into doing my exercise routine though. I fell out of the habit and need to get back into it. Purple Hearts sounds interesting. I am glad you had such a great reading week! I feel like I did too. 🙂 I hope you have a great week!

    • The gym I go to has one side for women only and the other side is unisex. I stick to the women side for now lol. I do join the classes and those are mixed but I don’t mind those.

  • lol – that’s cute about your grandma. Oh boy, hope you sick with the gym. Just imagine money getting flushed down the toilet every time you don’t want to go. I’m watching 13 Reasons Why right now!

  • Mollys Cafinated-Reads

    I LOVE your Instagram pics!!! Lots of goodies! Happy reading! I’m a blog follower and you can find my post for StS here if you’d like to stop by.

  • So many of these books sound good! I may have to add them all! And how awesome to have a book hook-up like that – yay! 🙂 Have a great week!

  • debnance

    I’m reading It Happens. Glad to see you liked it so much.

  • Charlie Anderson

    What a great friend to have! haha Sounds like you’ve had another fabulous week. I hope you fare better with the gym than I did.

  • What an amazing reading week! And not to mention book hauls when you’re being gifted so many books!

    Best of luck with the gym membership! I hope you’re enjoying it! Have a great week.

  • OMG. 50 books in total?! Good score! I hope you’ll share your loot in the next few days. 🙂 I’m curious.

  • Wow! That’s a lot of books! I would be in heaven. LOL

    Enjoy your new books and have a great week! ~Aleen

  • Whoa, a $200 penalty?! I can see why the commitment is so strong XD haha. I’m also so glad to see that Letters to the Lost was awesome, because I’m really looking forward to reading it 🙂 Wonderful wrap-up, though I did miss your photos!

    Brittany @ Brittany’s Book Rambles

  • Good luck with your new gym! Once I get into a routine I can go a few times a week so I don’t feel to bad not going. Good luck with all your new books!

  • Haha that’s one way to make you commit to a gym! I already know I won’t go so I’ve never tried. :p 13 Reasons Why is soo easy to binge! I watched 5 episodes in one night then needed a brain break.
