The Beehive Update #17: The Somewhat Update Edition

Hello bookie-friends :) 
So sorry for not posting much this past week! I took a bit of a book/blogging break and had some sorting to do too - I didn't even do a Waiting On Wednesday post last week, eep! I haven't missed one in 22 weeks, lol! SO, my shelves are cleaned and in order! My TBR pile is ready to go!... also, I have started scrapbooking and drawing/painting again, lol! Sounds like a lot, but I am so happy to be able to get back into it all again!!! I promise that this blog will remain all about books - but be on the lookout because I have been working on some projects and will be creating a new spot to share them, for those who might be interested in seeing my creations/work ;) 

Here is my book/swag haul for the last 2 weeks...

  1. it's nice to take breaks sometimes! I took a rather long break in the middle of July up until this past week. Hard to get back into blogging, though!

  5. Great haul!

    Breaks are good sometimes, especially when they let you get to other things that you may have put off for a while.

    Here's my Sunday Post

  6. Oooh ... awesome books! I bought Wake today and *almost* got The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

    Taking a break is totally fine -- it NEEDS to be done sometimes!

    Enjoy your new books!
