Weekly Recap 4/23/12 - 4/28/12

Hey guys!! I'm sure everyone is aware of the situation that happened in the blogosphere this past week so I won't get into it, but I am no longer participating in the In My Mailbox weekly meme. Out of fear of copying anyone's idea, I am instead just going to do a generic weekly recap in which I tell you what posts I have had on the blog the past week and I will also include any bookish things I have gotten too. You can see any of the posts by clicking on the title. Clicking on the book titles will take you to the books Goodreads page. I put the recap on video, but for those of you who don't like to watch videos I put the recap below too. I am pretty awkward in videos anyways, so I am sure they aren't very entertaining lol!

  3. Looks like you had a busy week! I also got approved for Glitch, and I can't wait to start it! It looks so good. Congrats on winning all those contests! I love it when I win a book. =)

    I also did my own thing today, but I'm looking for a meme to participate in. The whole point of sharing your mailbox was to share books with others, and that can only be really done in a meme. I guess we'll see what happens!

    Happy reading!

    1. Thanks Michele! I want to make a name for my weekly recap, maybe Weekly Reflection or something. Not sure. Either way, I like to have the weekly recap included and not just the books I got. Thanks for stopping by!!

    1. She is too young to really understand it, but she likes me to read to her. I am sure I will enjoy it. I have been reading her Three Times Lucky and she seems to like it even though it's way beyond her.
