    I’ve seen great reviews for The Language Inside and I’m really curious to what you think, Kimberly, you always have such eloquent reviews! 🙂 Hope you’re feeling better from the illness, 18 books is honestly a lot for me, maybe I’m just a slow reader haha! Enjoy reading all these books!

  2. Emz Chang (Icy Cold Reads)

    I would sign up for the Clean Sweep ARC Challenge… but I don’t have any ARCs. 🙁 Maybe next time.

    The Language Inside looks really good (and sounds really good too)!

    Happy reading! 🙂

  3. Bea

    I got the Bella Andre book also. My review of Summer in Napa went up yesterday; I;m curious to read your thoughts.

    I hope you’re feeling better!

    I hope you’re feeling much much better, Kimba, and read tons of books in May! *huge hugs*

  6. Tonyalee

    Hope you’re feeling better! 18 books (sick) is better then what I read when NOT sick ! 🙂 Have a good week! Going to check out your revews

  7. Melissa

    Oh wow, you always have an amazing week. And do hope you enjoy your winnings. I remember seeing them at Gina’s blog. 🙂 Hope you have a great week.

  8. Trish Hannon

    18! You slacker, sickness is no excuse! Lol. I thought 15 for my clean sweep challenge was pretty challenging, not so much now 🙂 Nice haul.

  9. Heather

    Oh! The Language inside looks really good. And I love that cover:)

    I like your new Stalk Me beverages. 🙂 Last month I asked the teen who did my blog to do me up some buttons that look like my book avatar, but she hasn’t had the opportunity. 🙁

  12. Libby

    WOW!!! You read that many while you were sick! That is impressive! I am scared to see how many you read when you are well!!!!

    The newcomer looks good! I will have to check it out!

  13. Nyx

    18 is still a nice solid number of reads, specially considering you were ill. Interesting book haul. Haven’t even heard of most of them xD

    I love the Sullivans and this first book was perfect!

  15. kindlemom1

    Bella Andre and Robyn Carr are both great authors, I am sure you are going to love both books! I haven’t seen the third around yet but it looks intriguing!

  16. Yvonne

    Only 18? I think that’s amazing. I hope you are feeling better now. The Robyn Carr looks so good. Have a great week!

  17. Jan

    It looks like you got some great books this week and had lots of great blog activity! I agree with Toni…only 18 books?!! You do read fast. 🙂

    Apparently it is, because everyone has commented on it..LOL I had viral pneumonia in April, which is why I was MIA for almost 2 weeks, but with my blog prescheduled not everyone knew about it. I am feeling stronger everyday, thanks Sam:)

  19. Lark

    Yikes! I’m glad you’re recovering. Be kind to yourself, though — it may take a while to bounce back all the way. Sending warm thoughts your way!

    do not be embarrassed I’ve been reading for almost forty years, its my addiction and I can read a paperback in 3 hrs. All that matters is that you enjoy it..no contest here.

  21. Jen Ryland

    Hope you are feeling better. But 18 books is not too shabby at all. My goal is to read three per week, so that’s ….. um …. well … only 12. *slinks off in embarrassment*

    You can find me here: Jen @ YA Romantics

  22. Kristin Clifton

    Hey, new book from Robyn Carr! We’ve got a ton of those at the library 🙂 And 18 books, huh? What’s a typical month? I know you bang out romances usually in a night so it usually up in the higher 20’s or 30’s for the month? Just curious…

    Like I said, get some sunshine in ya, you’ll be stronger faster 🙂 Have a great week!!

  23. kimbacaffeinate

    typically 22-30. I read 3 hrs daily (not all in one sitting) and I can bang out a paperback in that time. I do not read a book a day, but go in spurts where I will read 3 one week and 6 the next, all depends on my mood and the type of book.

  24. Lark

    18 books is a good month for some of us! But we’re all sorry you’ve been sick, and hope you are are feeling a lot better now!

    And ooh, the new Robyn Carr! You’ll have to tell us how you like it.

    it is the worse Emily, when I think of getting old the only thing that frightens me is the thought of not being able to read!

  26. Turning the Pages

    I’m so glad you’re finally feeling better enough to get back reading and blogging! 18 isn’t that bad at all 🙂 I hope you enjoy all your new books!

  27. Toni

    Only 18, really? I don’t know how you read so fast! lol. Loads of giveaways going on, I see. Great haul! I look forward to your reviews in the coming week.

    I read 3 hrs everyday min. It isn’t necessarily in one sitting but I can read a paperback in about 3 hrs. Have a wonderful week Toni!

    Will check out your review, despite some awkward moments, I did enjoy it and found myself craving eclairs. It was far from perfect, but I loved the grandmas and small town feel.
