This Week In Books

Sunday, July 8, 2012

Hello Everyone and Happy Sunday!

This Week In Book's is a weekly feature from Alea of Pop Culture Junkie in which we share all the awesome bookish related items we got "this week"!

No vlog this week, I'm being lazy and actually feeling a bit under the weather. Fair warning, this week's edition is jam packed full of awesome! Last Saturday my Mom's uncle died, and we quickly made the 8 hour trip to the valley to be with family and attend the funeral. I had lots of awesome things I couldn't wait to share with you guys last week, but due to the death in our family I wasn't able to. It was just really bad timing for me. 

I am finally back home, and the crazy has already started. The entire month of  July is insane for me. Right now as you read this, I am at a convention, next week I start doing some programs at the library for their summer reading program. And I also have another 3 day convention to attend. Due to my hectic schedule lately, I have not had the time to visit your blogs, reply to comments, or even post review. I promise I am going to work on that and hopefully i will pick a day next week to stop by and visit each and every one of you. In the meantime, thank you for continuing to stop by my blog, read my crazy thoughts, and leave such awesome comments. I love you guys! :)

Now...on to the books!
