{Monthly Wrap Up} Month of September 2015

Sunday Post is Hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves is Hosted by Tynga’s Reviews Hey guys! How has your week/month been? September has been a crazy whirlwind for me and after I missed the first two sunday posts, I decided that I would hold all my books until the end of the month to do a monthly wrap up. If you follow me on instagram, you will see that my family got a new puppy! I have been sharing pictures of him like crazy, along with the books that I have been getting in the mail. Another thing you may have noticed is that there was a film set in one of my pictures. My office filmed 150 videos on various legal questions and topics. In one day! That was all kinds of stressful. Basically, all of the attorneys in my office sat in one room and we each took turns being filmed. You would sit in a chair with these bright lights shining on… Read more »

{Weekly Wrap Up} Week of August 9th- 16th

Sunday Post is Hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves is Hosted by Tynga’s Reviews Hey guys! How has your week been? It has been a super crazy week at work. It seemed like there were fires left and right that needed to be put out, but this weekend was very nice to unwind. I didn’t get as much reading done as I would have liked, but I did get lots of errands and cleaning done. And sleep. There was lots of catching up on sleep going on. Which are also important things, I guess. haha But the crazy week at work was balanced out by finding out that…I WON the TWEAK ME CONTEST! Holy cow, I can hardly believe it. There were so many amazing and beautiful blogs. I wanted to give a huge congrats to all of the other blogs nominated. I have followed all of them and most of them are some of my favorite blog designs at the moment. Everyone’s is great…. Read more »

{Weekly Wrap Up} Week of July 27th- August 2nd

Sunday Post is Hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves is Hosted by Tynga’s Reviews Hey guys! How has your week been? I was back to my normal reviewing schedule this week. Because of blogging on a time crunch, I was able to get a couple of books ahead of schedule, which was nice, but now I want to do even more! So I decided to participate in ARC August this week. You can check out my post HERE Other than that, things have been good. This was a particularly busy and hectic week at work, so I am looking forward to just kicking back and relaxing this weekend.* Side note: I am looking at new inspiration for a blog mini blog makeover. I figure if I am going to switch to tweak me v. 2 I should change some stuff up while I am at it. If you have any ideas or things that you love on blogs, let me know in the comments. And… Read more »

{Weekly Wrap Up} Week of June 28th- July 5th

The Anatomical Shape of a Heart by Jenn Bennett Sunday Post is Hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves is Hosted by Tynga’s Reviews Hey guys! How has your week been? Happy Fourth of July everyone! I am celebrating with a weekend hike! I will share some pictures next week, but in the meantime I have two great weekend giveaways for you. You can win a copy of Miss Match and also your choice of one of my favorite books. Check them out! In other news, it was a big ole FAIL trying to get my website upgraded to the new Tweak Me v2, BUT I did upgrade to  Ultimate Book Blogger plugin v3. And I love it. There are still a few things that I need to tweak. (like getting my slider back up and getting my series to show up again in book information, but I will figure it out.) If you have not checked out the Ultimate Book Blogger plugin, you need to. I think it is… Read more »

{Weekly Wrap Up} Week of June 21-28th

Sunday Post is Hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves is Hosted by Tynga’s Reviews Hey guys! How has your week been? I was at a bar leaders conference. I was chosen to join a leadership academy for my state bar organization and our first meeting was at the end of this week. It was really great. I think it is going to be a great opportunity and that I am going to learn a lot. I met a ton of great people and even got to see my parents again because it was in their neck of the woods (or beach I should say) but it was yet another weekend of traveling. Sigh. Oh well, I can rest later, right? In other news, it was a big ole FAIL trying to get my website upgraded to the new Tweak Me v2 and new Ultimate Book Blogger plugin v3. No time this week. But I will do it eventually. I also joined COYER scavenger hunt. I have not done… Read more »

{Weekly Wrap Up} WeekS of May 24th- June 14th

Sunday Post is Hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves is Hosted by Tynga’s Reviews Hey guys! How has your week been? Busy busy busy is basically the only word that can describe me lately. I have been running around all over the place and my sunday posts have been pushed off to the side. :/ I know, it makes me sad too. I did have an epic time looking at all the wonderful BEA posts, and I made a decision to finally get off my butt and go to BEA next year. I am so serious I have already put it on my work calendar. It is happening! It will be my first time going to BEA or any book convention in almost 5 years of blogging. It is time! But since I have skipped the last three sunday posts, that means I have a pretty epic book haul to share! These are the books that I have gotten in the mail and on my… Read more »

{Weekly Wrap Up} Weeks of May 17th- 24th

Sunday Post is Hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves is Hosted by Tynga’s Reviews Hey guys! How has your week been? I have been busy and tired and trying my hardest not to get sick. I want a vacation. haha But I have also been trying to cut down on my amount of review books. My calendar is looking pretty full for the summer. And I know that I still need to go back and add a bunch more review books to my schedule, so yea this week I took in less books than usual, and I was pretty pleased about that. I am also reviving an old project that I had where I provide authors and publishers with a list of book bloggers that are looking for book to review. (Its not a tour company or any kind of paid service, it is just a read-only form that I provide to people that send me review requests) If you would like more information on… Read more »
