{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 »

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? This has been a very long week. I had some work functions that I needed to go to on Thursday and Friday so I had two 14 hour work days in a row. So I have really been looking forward to this weekend. Lots of relaxing and cleaning and errand running yesterday and today I am just relaxing. Reading and watching tv and trying to stretch the day out before the the work week starts up again.

{Weekly Wrap Up} April 19-25th

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?   Last weekend was my best friends wedding. It was a beautiful ceremony and so much fun. I had a blast and she looked beautiful. I love her and her new husband. I have known them both since high school, so that was pretty special. (They have been dating for 10 years!) This week was a catch up week at work. Even if you take 2 days off, there is always plenty waiting for you when you get back. I went to a wine walk yesterday with my boyfriend and his parents. That was a lot of fun. You buy a book of tickets and a “wine passport” and you walk around the street festival and sample different wines. It was a very nice day. And my books this week were pretty epic because I did my sunday post early last week, so this… Read more »

{Weekly Wrap Up} Week of April 5-12th

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? This week feels like just another week for me. I did a little work on my office library and I found a great wall vinyl for one of the shorts walls. I am looking for more, but I would love to buy them through amazon or at least a site where I can get free shipping. If anyone knows of any place to find other bookish quote for my library let me know! I am excited to get my final bookcases built so I can show you all my library. For now you get a sneak peak with one of the wall quotes. Last week was also my 4 year Blogoversary! And I have an awesome giveaway up on the blog to celebrate, so I hope you will check that out. Books I got this week: *Thank you so much to Balzer + Bray,… Read more »

{Weekly Wrap Up} Week of March 23-29th

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? My dad is doing a lot better. My grandpa is still not feeling the best but he is doing great work in Physical Therapy. Since I have been traveling a lot these past weeks, this week felt like catch up just to try and get back into my rhythm. But it was mine and my boyfriends 2 year anniversary so we went out to a murder mystery dinner. It was a lot of fun. My boyfriend was even picked to play a suspect. He was one of the three pigs. Oh, did I forget to mention it was a fairy tale themed murder mystery. haha It was something fun and different. April 2nd is my 4 year blogoversary celebration and I have giveaways from some of my favorite authors as well as a really big prize giveaway from me as a thank you for… Read more »

{Weekly Wrap Up} Week of March 1-8th #TakeControlTBR

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? This week on the blog was like a celebration week for no particular reason! I have had so many awesome books and giveaways up on the blog, including a giveaway where you can win any book you want if you are lucky. 😉 But I also had 3 five star reviews and I was quoted 2 books! I have never had that many 5 star reviews in one week or been quoted in that many books. I am still a little starry eyed. My friend and I had a great time at Harry Potter world last weekend. I can never get over the magic in that place. The attention to detail that Universal Studios put into every little thing is incredible. And Diagon Alley is so big and so tall that you could easily spend an entire day in and not discover everything. Especially with… Read more »

{Weekly Wrap Up} Week of Feb. 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? Last weekend I went to Harry Potter world (at Universal Studios) with my sister and we explored Diagon Alley. It was amazing for those of you that have not been yet, and get a chance to go, you should. You will really love it. And if you do go, be sure to try the apple crumble ice cream from Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlor. It is incredible. And because you can never have too much Harry Potter or rides (and because I have an annual pass) my friend is coming to visit this weekend as well and we are hitting up the parks again. I will try and remember to take pictures this time so I can share them in my next Sunday post. Be sure to check in next week on the blog because I am super excited about all the posts I… Read more »
