Sorry for the lack of reviews, but can you believe I'm currently reading 5 books right now? (Three books, 2 audiobooks!) I'm hoping to post reviews soon, but life is taking over! I have a major project due for grad school, my wedding is in 11 days, and my teen space at work is getting re-done, which is great, but I've been without my office for two weeks!!

I'm going to work on reviewing older titles as well as newer books, so be on the lookout for a mix of reviews soon.


  1. Take your time. Ahhh, congrats on your wedding! :) :) Good luck for school and work.

  2. 11 days?!?!? Don't even worry about us! Congratulations!

  3. Oooh...what are you reading? And how exciting about your wedding! I hope you have an amazing, happy day. (:

  4. I'm reading:
    Marcelo in the Real World
    The Chosen One
    Save the Date

    I'm listening to:
    The Boyfriend List
    Zen and the Art of Faking It
