Where Did May Go? {Weekly Wrap Up 110}

weekly wrap up

Weekly Wrap Up is a weekly post in which I recap posts, showcase new books and highlight what’s to come! Also, I share a pic of the week and share discussion posts that caught my eye*. Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s reviewsThe Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Seriously, where did May go? I feel like this year is going by SO FAST!!!

Work was actually rather mellow, all things considered. The kiddos only have 1 week left of school. AMAZING, right!? We will be visiting our family in WA come mid/late June which I am excited for! My knee has been feeling a little better, I actually ran twice last week, but it’s still swollen and uncomfortable. Only 4 more weeks until the 5k and IDK how I will do!

Blog wise – it was a productive week! I loved reading everyone’s thoughts on Trends in the Community (see below). I am thinking about opening up the blog to more guest reviewers/bloggers. I think having fresh meat on the blog will liven things up! I’m scared, though, that if I do open it up no one will be interested LOL anyway, I need to talk it over with Danielle about it first!

Also, PLEASE PLEASE share the word about Middle Grade Madness (link to post)! If you know anyone that reads Middle Grade, send em my way! This is a great link up to share all the love for middle grade, and so others can easily find more books!

    I can’t believe how quickly the year is going – it’s crazy! Yay that your knee is feeling better! 🙂

    An Ember in the Ashes is great ! 😀

    Enjoy your new books! 🙂

    It sure feels like this year goes by fast! I hope your knee will be doing better soon. And that’s exciting your kids are almost free from school and you will be visiting your family then. That’s a great idea for a Middle Grade challenge, it seems so few bloggers who read MG book. I do read them now and then, but not very often, just bought a new MG book today coincidentally. Click here to start looks great! I hope you’ll enjoy your new books and have a great week!

      Yes the kiddos are excited for school to be out – not I haha I will only be up in WA for a week but it’ll be nice to see family.

      I wish more people would join MG madness! 🙂

    Can I just say that your Instagram book pics are gorgeous!! Where does everyone get the props to do these pictures!?!?!? And the time to stage these?? I’m in awe 🙂 Props, girlie!!!

    And don’t scare me like that again… there’s ONE MORE week of May!!! yikes!

    • tonyalee

      Thank you! 🙂

      I get props everywhere lol and it takes at least 1 hour to set up and take pics and about an hour to edit and schedule. Every Sunday!

    I hope this last week of school passes uneventfully. The holiday sounds like something to look forward to.

    I definitely wouldn’t be looking forward to the 5km but that’s just me. I hope your knee improves quickly!
