The Weekly Wrap-Up (4)

I've been on a small break as I get caught up on things for the blog and in my real life. June is promising to be a BIG month (lots of great books, some awesome blog tours, and two very fun events!), so I'm going to get my blog all prepped: hopefully a new header will be up soon, I'll get all the behind-the-scenes work done, and I'm going to work on finally getting my Pinterest fully integrated as well as make a Facebook page!  June is also my six month blogging anniversary, which means: GIVEAWAY! I'm still trying to get the details together, but you'll know soon. Keep your eyes peeled!

The break continues next week, so I won't post as often. Some reviews and memes will go up, and I'm around so I'll visit blogs and comment and respond - just going to be a bit slower.

Anyway! Recapping the week...

      Thanks about the Top Ten! It was really difficult because I kept thinking of things (i still thought of one this morning!), but so much fun. I'm really behind on reading too, so the break has been nice.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! Have a wonderful day <3
