Ugh! Last week was an epic fail! I did not get much reading done at all throughout all the chaos of the week. It was a very full week that was thrown off by severe allergies and asthma, and a rude awakening from a faulty fire alarm and the following visit from the fire department.  But Munchkin graduated from Kindergarten on Friday and we had quite the celebration.  The busy week was capped off with a fully packed weekend. It is almost nice to get back to the office and be nearly back to normal.

I missed a couple of posts for the RI Author month, but I will be back on track this week with a full series review, an interview with an author and a giveaway! Hope you will all stick around for that!

Here's to hoping for a good week this week!


  1. Eeesh! Sound link a crazy week again! I don’t know how you do it. My life looks so boring in comparison. Better luck with your reading this week.

    1. Haha, sometimes I don't know how I do it either! Thank goodness for the escape into books!

  2. Congrats to Munchkin! Faulty fire alarms are SO annoying.

    1. It's crazy how fast they grow up! Ugh and now Munchkin is living in constant fear of fire, he won't go to bed if I have a kitchen burner on!

  3. I didn't have a great reading week last week either. I had a lot of boring stuff that I had to catch up on (laundry, cooking, cleaning) and I didn't have much time to read. So far, this week has been a much better reading week!

    1. Yuck, all that normal house work, it is always getting in the way of reading! I am glad your week is going better!
