{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 »

{Monthly Wrap Up} Month of August 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 been? Where the heck has August gone? I can’t wrap my head around the fact that it is almost September. Things have seemed particularly busy lately, so I am always moving on to the next thing. It’s all good stuff so I can’t complain, but it is a lot. haha I am looking forward to the end of September when I will hopefully be able to relax a bit. I haven’t had had time to do a weekly wrap up in a couple of weeks so I have decided to hold my books and do a monthly wrap up. So these are my August books. I am also looking for some good September Instagram challenges. So please let me know which one(s) I should join.  I am still trying to figure out the challenge part of instagram. Books I got this month: *Thank you so… 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} 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} May 10th-17th

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 »

{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 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 »
