That’s a Wrap- April Edition

thats a wrap

“That’s a Wrap” is my new Monthly wrap up post. I will be linking up the Sunday post.

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Can you believe it’s MAY already!? You know what that means… BEA!

It also means the end of school, warm weather and Summer planning. The boys will be heading out to Washington (state) in the beginning of June to visit our family. We decided we weren’t going, even though my niece is getting married. It’s difficult to find trustworthy people to take care of the house and all my animals. In other exciting news, my mom is FINALLY coming down to Georgia to visit! It’s been four years and all my nagging has paid off. So, I am excited for THAT!

BEA coming up in a few weeks has me stressing to the MAX. The planning aspect is getting nerve-wracking, and I am starting to realize the funds I had set aside might not be enough. Plus, with how I get in crowds… *bites nails* I’ve debated cutting my loses and not going. :/

On the blog, things have been pretty good! I didn’t realize I hit 60k+ page views, which is kind of exciting! I mentioned last month that I was going to be changing the “Freebie Poll” and I will be starting that soon. There are two reasons for this 1) I haven’t been “purchasing” many freebies, and 2) the last few have been.. less than stellar. Whomp Whomp. Starting with #21, I will be doing “second chances,” which will be review books that got left behind and forgotten about. Then there are the series books, which will be series that i have started but never got around to next book.

Look for that soon!

At the beginning of the year, I went to doing these post monthly vs weekly. I love the freedom it gives me the rest of the week, but I think I might switch back to weekly. What do you think?

I will also be skipping out on the Sharing the Love Monthly Giveaway this month! It will be back up and running for June (late, because I fly in late from NY on the 1st) but it’ll be there!

Wrapping it up! Here’s what went down in March!

    Ooo go to BEA, and enjoy. If it gets too crowded step outside and take a few mins. I am planning to go in 2015 and cannot wait. Have a wonderful week Tonyalee

    Just because I’ve been missing from the blogging scene for a month doesn’t mean I didn’t see that!! You are so not backing out of BEA! I want to meet you! I’ll come up with ways to de-stress you.. like… giving you a bottle of wine at the hotel. Haha. 🙂
