Life Lately:
I sound like a broken record, but I got carried away again this week with books. lol!  I'm not sure if I will ever catch up but there are just so many good books out there right now!  I'm going to try really hard not to request any more books for a couple weeks, since I've gotten so many lately.  I am going to be playing catch up for a while I think. lol!I have still managed to keep ahead with scheduling blog posts, which will help me catch up on reading (I hope!).

I also got to have a nice date night out with my husband.  We got to go to a  hockey game together (Pittsburgh Penguins hockey play off game)!!  I'm a huge sports nut, so I love hockey.  It was nice to get out with just him for a while too.  I love being able to stay at home with my daughter, but it's great to get away sometimes.

Meg & Linus by Hanna Nowinski - Review & Giveaway

  1. I'm about ready to give up on my tbr...I just can't stop buying new books which sabotages all my good work reading all week. Book bans never work but I need some kind of plan. Maybe I should tackle the non fiction and clear some shelf room next month...

    1. It's so hard to get the motivation to write a post sometimes after finishing a book! lol! I'm struggling with that right now. I finished reading a book Friday night or Saturday and haven't written the review for it yet (oops!).
