So as most know I have been pretty MIA the last two week but I am officially back today and I have so much to tell you. It’s been a slow come back but I have a lot of stuff planned. Stormi and I have a new Meme starting soon. I am waiting for her to get back from being away. Once she is back we will have an intro post so if you are interesting in joining you have time to get the post ready. We are excited about it because the layout is unique and it can be done any way you want. I can’t wait to share the details.
I am super behind on blog posts and have spent most of this weekend doing that and design work. I had a pretty busy weekend but very happy with my progress. Blog Ahead starts this week so that will I am hoping get me through the summer. I now need to find time to read because my review blog and lacking reviews. I did get bookmail the last two weeks so I was super excited about that and I am expecting one more. I had filled out a form for Penguin to get a few HIGHLY ANTICIPATED READ but sadly I don’t think I was picked to receive the ARCs. After all this time it still hurts…LOL 😉 I will have all those gorgeous covers below even the books from BookCon.
Speaking of BookCon….You all get the exclusive on how I thought BookCon was….BORING! Seriously BORING! I am planning to write a post but I am not sure what my $74 paid for since I had to purchase books at the ticketed signing area…Um… what was the point of that? and limiting it to only two autograph signings a day. I was so confused. I brought home 2…yes TWO ARCs that was it for $74. My daughter and I left early because I was just underwhelmed and bored. She had fun walking around and enjoyed the My Little Pony Area but I spent more on books to get signed then I did for the event. Very disappointed and plan to just go to the Expo instead next year, realized the $300 admission to get in for the 3 days was totally worth it. (don’t want to sound spoiled or ungrateful but I’ll explain in the post, I hope, to write this week)
This week was the last week of Softball! YAY! Normal can finally return but she will do a two day program for the month of July. It’s a Softball Camp to teach basics and instruction. She is super excited to do it, I think she could be an excellent ball player if she practices more. It also helps with her attention because I am starting to wonder if she has ADD or ADHD, she bounces around so much and we know she is not paying attention.
Thank you if you stopped by this week and last week, I am going to try to reply to comments this week but I might not get to everyone but I wanted to acknowledge that I did read them. So THANK YOU! Also, thank you, if you are still actually reading this! 🙂

Books read & currently reading:
I recently realized I find it easier to read Physical Book on the Weekend and Ebooks on the Weekdays. So as much as I am not a fan of reading two books at one, I think this could help me read more since it’s easier to read Ebooks at work and waiting at the school for the kids and the weekend I am home or at the shore and can read physical (even at the pool)
New on the Bookshelf/Kindle:
