Back to Celebrating Fridays

Now that April is over and my minion duties and posting for AtoZ isn't taking over my life (which I rather enjoyed - no that isn't sarcasm), I can go about my regular scheduled programing.

Which means today is Friday and Fridays are the Celebration over at Viklit! (Go to her blog and check out who else celebrates Fridays!)

Since I haven't shared my happiness in a month I have a lot to celebrate:
  • Tomorrow will mark the first week of owning my Jeep. I love it!
  • Most importantly - I finished AtoZ baby! At no point did I want to quit but there were a few times I wanted to slap bloggers. ;)
  • I read a ton during April.
    • Freakling by Lana Krumwiede (5 stars)
    • Chasers by James Phelan (3 stars)
    • Reached by Ally Condie (3.75 stars - the series as a whole gets 4 stars)
    • This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers (4.5 stars)
    • Ashen Winter by Mike Mullins (5 stars)
    • Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter (4 stars)
    • Magesterium by Jeff Hirsch (4 stars)
    • 172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad (3 stars)
    • Zom-B (bk 2) by Darren Shan (4 stars)
  • On my shelf right now to read I have...
    • Unwholly by Neal Shusterman
    • Breathe by Sarah Crossan
  • Cover Girls first AtoZ went off without a hitch! And we have some great book reveals coming up in May and June.
  • I've joined several blogfests and hops for the month of May.
  • Jackie and I created a blogfest coming in June!
  • Don't forget you can always be a part of something bigger.
  • Express Yourself Meme will resume on Monday May 6th with new questions!
I think that's it. If not I will add them to next weeks list. Until then, have a great week!

What to expect from me next week...
  • Express yourself - Monday
  • My AtoZ Reflections post - Tuesday
  • Liebster Award - Wednesday
  • Sunshine Award - Thursday
  • Celebrations Post - Friday
  • May Monster Madness starts Saturday


  1. Very impressed that you've managed to read so much. Ive just given up on Rune Marks by Joanne Harris. I'm cross with myself really, because I love her writing, but I just couldn't get into this one and my 'waiting to be read' pile is threatening to take over.

  2. Yeah! The JEEP! Just in time for summer!

  3. You read all that in April?! :o I'll be glad to read that much over the Summer!

  4. You did an amazing job with the A-Z. I have no idea how you got around to so many people! And next week will be super busy for you again.

    Have A Great Weekend, best of luck with that new Jeep!

    PS: I really hope you didn't want to slap me.

  5. Way to go, that is a lot of awesome stuff to celebrate! You did well with your reading list. Have fun in that jeep!

  6. LOL for a second there I thought you wanted to slap actual bloggers and I was hoping I wasn't one of them... then I realized you meant Bloggers the site :D

    Yay for finishing the AtoZ... you did wonderful!

  7. I'm so jealous of the book reading/listening that you get done!
    And I'm excited to get our EYM meme running again! :)

  8. You've got a lot going on! I'm excited for Express Yourself, I've missed it this last month! :)

  9. Glad to see you have quite a bit to be thankful for. I bought a ton of ebooks with gift cards I won. Whooo! Congrats on completing A-Z.

  10. You have such an overwhelming energy. I wonder how can you be minion, do the challenge and still get time for reading during April? You're my hero, it's official now.

  11. Wow, you accomplished a lot in April, and it looks like you'll be busy for the next month as well. Rock on!

  12. OMG you read a ton! :) YAY To good books.

  13. Oddly, I also read a lot in April. My thirst for reading continues. I'm humoring it, because I know that I won't read a quarter of what I did once I start editing again.


I heart me some good comments... and pumpkin spice latte's too!
