It's been a wonderful week in book-landia :)
I have loved catching up with many of you! And seeing all the wonderful books that are flying around!!! 

Things are picking up around here! 
I am so excited to be going to a book-signing next week with my sister, see this post for all the details!

However, after my wrap-up next week, I will be taking a short hiatus until August - we are moving into our new home mid-month and this mama needs to get everything unpacked! Including our 15 boxes of books, oi! Wish us luck ;)

  6. Eeep, good luck with the move! We've moved twice in as many years, and packing up everything TWICE was really annoying, not to mention hard, haha. ;) I had something like 3 mega-boxes of books that had to brought upstairs, and my parents just gave me this crazy look. Nonetheless, you got some awesome books! I had no idea there was a Pushing the Limits 1.5, which I'm now going to have to check out.

    Happy reading (and moving), Margie! <3
