First off, let me squee excitedly over my new blog design! Isn’t it pretty? I was really tired of my previous layout and wanted a change, but am completely layout illiterate. Nancy from Nancy’s Blog Designs was amazing, working until I was completely happy, and willing to go back and forth while I fought to make up my mind. She was so helpful and easy to work with. I wholeheartedly recommend her!
I was bad this week and broke my galley site ban, thanks to Lauren who had to mention that Fire With Fire was available on Edelweiss. I couldn’t stop myself from requesting, since this is one of my most anticipated 2013 releases. Bad, Merin! I also got approved for a couple other titles that I’d actually requested ages ago, plus picked up my May Random Reads pick from the library. May is going to be a crazy busy reading month for me, because I want to try to get all of my pending e-galleys read in preparation for my Month of Me that I’m having in June (wherein I read only what I want, when I want, in celebration of my birthday). I’m also participating in my first “official” read-along! Add in the usual end of the school year stress – we get out May 23rd, hurrah! – including standardized testing, completing the state report for my school’s library, etc., and I have a TON to do. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t counting down the days!
