Weekend Wrap-Up (15)

My week hasn’t been too crazy, and so I’ve gotten some reading done! I’m on track for the read-a-thon right now. And you may have noticed a theme among many of the books. That’s right, fairy tales! Because I’m in a fairy tale mood, and so I decided completely on a whim to host a Fairytale-a-Thon! You can learn more here, and look for more news in the very near future!

Coming This Week
This week is going to be exciting! I’ve nicknamed it “Enna Week”, because in addition to reviewing the Books of Bayern, I’ll have Enna Isilee of Squeaky Books stopping by not once, but twice! Once for an interview, and once for her Birthday Bash!
Other News
Oh, I probably haven’t mentioned before that my mom was pregnant. And on August 16th, I became a big sister to the 6th power. Which practically guarantees that I will never get a quiet moment to read again. Wish me luck!
How was your week?

  1. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on Daughter of Smoke and Bone. It's one of my favorites this year.

    Also, I got your email re: the fairy tale readathon. When I get back to my classroom, I'll compare my curriculum to the dates to see what my involvement can be. :)


I love comments, and I promise I read every single one. I do my best to reply to all your meaningful comments, so come back in a couple days to see if I have! And if you see that I've responded to others comments and not yours, it's just because I've been struck dumb by your awesomeness! And if you leave me a link to your blog, I'll try to stop by and comment!

This is an award and tag-free zone! I'm honored, but I don't have the time to pass it along )=
