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.
