#Bloggiesta starting line!

Today marks the start of Bloggiesta! I’m so excited because I have so much stuff that needs to get done around the blog. So here is my updated to- do list. I know I won’t get all of it done, but I am going to try my best to make a good dent in it. – comment on other blogs! (I have been trying to do this more.

( I think I have about 7-10 books that are read and just sitting around waiting to be reviewed. Not. ok. ) – get all outstanding giveaways wrapped up. (sadly with the craziness of life, I have not been on top of all of my giveaways. I love offering them for you guys but they are a lot of work and I have some books that need to be sent out from weeks ago (sorry winners!)… Read more »
