Weekly Recap:

First off, I apologize for my blogging absence. I've been on vacation and haven't really had the time to update my blog. You see, I've been in Seattle with my fabulous friend Ginger from GReads. She actually wrote a fabulous post about our Seattle experience.

After that, I was in Atlanta spending some much needed time with mi familia at my aunt's house. When I wasn't at the aquarium, zip-lining, or hiking, I spent most of my time in her backyard, reading on her deck. I mean really, can you blame me?

Gorgeous, right? I want to live there forever. ANYWAY, I'm back least until ALA. In the words of LMFAO, sorry for party rockin'. ;-) Now, recap time!

*The Top Ten Good GREAT Beach Books I'd Recommend.
*Wherein I review MY LIFE NEXT DOOR by Huntley Fitzpatrick. Everyone (and I mean EVERYONE) should read this book!

Tons of giveaway winners will be announced this week, and I'll also be posting more giveaways, so watch out for those. If you're going to be at ALA this week, let me know! I'd love to meet ya!

So, what books did you get this week? Recaps? Awesome vacations? Let me know!


  1. I read Being Friends With Boys awhile ago and I really enjoyed it. I hope you enjoy everything and here's my IMM =)

  3. Ok your Aunt's backyard looks AMAZING!! I want to hear more about your Atlanta adventures. I had SO MUCH FUN with you in Seattle!! We are some definitely rock stars.. I mean, we did get to hang front row with Daughtry, right?! hehe

    See you on Tuesday for Richelle Mead! Yay!

  4. I loved Meant to BE!! Soo good!! I am looking forward to Crewel! Happy Reading!

  5. LOVE your aunt's backyard. It looks gorgeous!
    And the cover of Meant To Be also looks gorgeous.

  7. Oh my gooooosh. You have Meant to Be!! I'm so jealous!!

  8. Squee! We have some of the same books this weekend! I can't wait to hear what you think of Meant to Be and The Assassin's Curse :-)

    How did you like the GA Aquarium? Isn't it AMAZING?! It's my absolute favorite place and I wish I could live there. Next time you go, if you haven't already, you should do the Behind the Scenes tour. I'm an aquarium geek and have a saltwater tank myself, so I am always fascinated by this type of stuff ;-)

    I'm so glad you had a wonderful time with Ginger! I loved the recap :-) Hope I can hang out with you two lovely ladies again soon.

    Happy reading!
