The Weekly Wrap-Up (27): And by "week," I mean "April."

It's been quite awhile since I did one of these! I keep meaning to, but each weekend has been filled with so many things to do or places to go. LA for the Festival of Books (which was fantastic!), Palm Springs with 9 other friends for a friend's birthday (also fun), family things...time just moves so swiftly. Work has been utterly insane, though I'm not going to whine about it here too much (mostly because if you follow me on Twitter, you've probably already heard it). Busy busy busy!

    Man, I miss LATFOB... it was the BEST. :( I always got a sunburn though. :) I'm really excited for Dirty Little Secret and am really looking forward to what you think!

    Woohoo awesome new books!! Pushing the Limits and Unravel Me in particular. ;) And I've been meaning to read Code Name Verity. Everyone RAVES about it!

    I hope you enjoy your ARCs. Unfortunately Wild Awake and September Girls REALLY weren't for me. I hope you like them though! *fingers crossed*
