  • I did a Top Ten Tuesday and featured the ten books I’m most looking forward to reading this winter

What you can expect next week on the blog: a few giveaways on Monday for my...*gulp*...30th birthday; a Top Ten Tuesday featuring ten authors who were new to me in 2013; an excerpt from North Pole Reform School by Jaimie Admans and a giveaway as part of the blog tour; and a fun Christmasy post or two. 

Last weekend I went to a surprise 30th birthday party for one of my best childhood friends. The DJ was the cousin of my friend's husband, so we basically got him to play what we wanted all night, and the playlist consisted of a lot of songs we grew up with (a boatload of New Kids on the Block, Backstreet Boys, 'N Sync, and a lot of the songs that were popular during our college clubbing days when we used to party 3-4 nights a week and still make it to class for 7am). We've been friends for 25 years, so it was nice to celebrate with her. 

Other than that, I finally started writing again this week; I spent some time with my six-month-old niece; I finished decorating for Christmas and did some Christmas shopping; I got a ton of reading done (I'm determined to make my 2013 goal and I only have 3 books left to go!); and I spent some time working on goals for 2014.

Thanks for stopping by! How was your week? Did you get any new books? Have you read any good ones that you'd recommend? Tell me in the comments below or post a link to your Stacking the Shelves/Book Haul/In My Mailbox/Showcase Sunday, etc. Happy reading! <3
