What a week it has been!! Today the mini-me has 2 hours of dance and 1 hour of swimming – her own choice – so I am hoping for some reading time! But we shall see!
Well, the results are in!! Another an interesting week… I would love to say my TBR list is going down but I seem to add more on! lol. #sorry! We did have a clear winner which is of no surprise to me, however, because 2nd place was ever so close I will keep that too.
I mean not going to lie, I do get a bit disappointed when the book I want to keep isn’t saved…but then that is what happens when I leave it in to your trusty hands, so this week I am saving!
What do I have to offer up this week? Like lambs to the slaughter!
