The Weekly Write-Up is where I talk about what’s gone on in the past 168 hours, both on the blog and off.
How was your week? Mine was lazy, tired, and all around gross. Gotta love winter, right?
It was a tough week at work, since I’ve been like halfway sick for a few weeks now. I think the latest I stayed up any night last week was 10 pm. Because of that, I didn’t get a ton of stuff done on the blog since I would fall asleep so soon after getting home from work.
At work, all I do is edit nowadays. I miss writing so much! It also sucks to be really excited about certain ideas and writing topics, but not get to be the one to carry them out. All the bummers stacked up really affects my creativity, too.
Last week had a lot more bookish blog posts than usual, because of the review-a-thon, but less bloggish posts. I promise I’ll double up on the Bumblings Blog Tips sometime soon to make up for it!
- I participated in the Write On Review-a-Thon for the month, but with a modified schedule.
- I reviewed For Valentine’s, a kind of extended epilogue of the No Weddings series. (I also found out that a ton of secondary characters from the series are getting their own standalones. Squee!)
- A Second Chance at Paris solidified my love for nerdy romances.
- We got to meet Clayton from Mad Love in this character blitz.
- I reviewed another Montgomery Brothers book, Return to You.
- Ashley at Nose Graze talks about the different circles of book bloggers. Which one(s) do you fit into?
- She’s also giving away a theme bundle! If I hadn’t spent 8 hours tweaking my theme last weekend, I’d totally enter. But that time needs to be worth something, lol.
- Bookmark Lit reviewed Yes, Please, which is still on my TBR! All of my Amy Poehler energy is being channeled towards rewatching the first six seasons of Parks and Rec as many times as possible before season 7 ends. :O
- Ten Penny Dreams talks about running a blog while working full-time. The struggle is real!
- These things no one tells you about book blogging are so true.

What I’ve read:

- Lane Changes by S.L. Ellis (review coming soon)
- Floored by Melanie Harlow (I just started this morning but I’m in love, I’m in love, I’m in love)
(Yep, it was a slow week, going to bed an hour after I got home, and all.)
