The Weekly Wrap-Up (26)

It's been a rough week, guys. Work was really long and for some reason it hit me hard - I had problems sleeping every night, so everything seemed to drag. It took it's toll on my mood, which is why I tried not to review, tweet, or instagram anything because I could feel all my negativity and didn't want to take it out on anyone or anything. I still feel like I'm in recovery mode, but I'm seeing a little sunshine at least - which counts for everything.

In case you missed it...
> I reviewed The Boyfriend App by Katie Sise, which was...quite different than expected.
> I also broke every rule possible in my Top Ten Tuesday by choosing SIXTEEN boys, and doing an extra bonus part. But how do you expect me to whittle down book boyfriends?! Impossible, I tell you.
> April is also looking to be a relaxing reading month, filled with some great contemps.

    Couldn't sleep any good, either. (It's 3am right now, and I just can't close my eyes and find some rest.) Maybe it's the wheather. D:

    Great books you've got though, so Happy Reading and Happy Belated Birthday!
