The Weekly-Wrap Up (25): Bueller?....Bueller?

I really have no new excuses this time as to why it's been so quiet on the blog. Work has been absolutely insane - we're doing a lot of expansion, and yours truly gets to be at the helm of it all. It's awesome, but exhausting, and I find myself barely making it home much less able to blog. this past week, I didn't open my computer from Tuesday to Friday! How ridiculous is that?!

Regardless, I am still managing to squeeze in some reading and author events. It's pretty much the only time I feel sane, so I have to do it. This weekend I am scheduling reviews, and hopefully getting together some awesome event recaps.

In case you missed it...

So, I know there were very few posts. But there was a review of The Elite (The Selection #2) by Kiera Cass, as well as another giveaway!
This one asks you to tell me your favourite book blog/gers, and you could win 2 signed books! Or at least one, if you're international.

Coming up...
A petite revue of Butter by Erin Jade Lange, regular reviews of How I Lost You by Janet Gurtler and Nantucket Blue by Leila Howard, and a fantastic Waiting on Wednesday post. I'll also tell you my surprisingly reasonable April reading goals!

Onto the books!

And I know it's not books, but it is bookish/writerly! My brother's girlfriend gave me journals for my birthday on the 19th, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE them. Look how hilarious! My other friend Kat also gave me bookends, and I adore them - how cute and rustic! Now to finally build the shelf that they'll sit on...

    This is such an awesome haul! I definitely want to read every book you received this week, I already have a copy of Clockwork Princess, but I need the time to get to it. Those bookends are adorable, and I love the journals too, particularly the red one, haha!

    Wow! Lots of great looking books. I'm especially interested in getting my hands on Clockwork Princess, but I may have to wait awhile. Have fun reading and with your work expansion.

    I LOVE THOSE JOURNALS SO MUCH!!! And now I am going to be making all of the rap songs I know into writery songs. Love. Love. Love. :) And it's okay to be quiet on the blog. Real life can be soooooo annoying sometimes (but in a good way it sounds like.)

  8. UnknownApril 1, 2013 at 1:43 PM

    OMG, that journal, the DMX one, that is awesome! Where can I find one of those?? :)

    Can't wait to hear all about your signings:)

    And yay for purchasing Catching Jordan! Will this be your first Miranda Kenneally read? She has become one of my favorite contemp. YA writers, love all of her books, especially Stealing Parker and Things I Can't Forget. they are pretty addicting:)
