Happy Sunday bookworms!

Well I’m happy to report that I am back after a little hiatus around the blogosphere for the past 2 weeks.   After only being home one day this week after going out of town for my son’s football camp, then for a long weekend trip with my husband’s side of the family, I am ready to get back into the swing of things around here…

*Weekly Wrap-Up is a weekly post where I feature what posts were published on the blog for the past week, any bookish/blog happenings, what I recently finished reading, what I am currently reading, what I will be reading next, noteworthy posts around the bookish blogosphere, and any interesting bookish articles I came across.

» I am happy to announce that the second installment of my “Book Blogger Recs” feature will be up tomorrow!  Stay tuned, especially if you are a YA fan 🙂

» Since I’ve been away, I’ve fallen EXTREMELLY behind on my blog hopping.  As much guilt as I feel over this decision, I’ve decided I need to just start anew this week and not attempt to go back and read all the posts I missed.  Right now there are 300+ emails in my inbox of posts I’ve missed over the past week and a half…. I would love nothing more to be able to go back and read them all, but it just isn’t realistic.  I hope all my blogger friends will understand.Divider2

  1. I removed Commonwealth from my TBR a while ago and I don’t think I’ll add it again. But I found you? YESSS.

    Wow, I don’t use e-mails for blog-hopping and you’re right, there’s no need to go back and read everything haha Out of curiosity, how many blogs do you follow? :O
