    Wow! You’ve been busy! Planning a wedding is hard work and it’s even harder when you have such a short timeline. Good luck! And you sure did win a lot of treats this week 🙂 Enjoy your reads and have fun with the wedding planning Kimba!

    Ah the fun times of preparing a wedding. Hope it’s not too stressful for you or your daughter. I know I was most stressed when I had nothing to do and kept thinking that I had forgotten something but that’s me I have to keep busy.
    Hope you have a great week.

    Everything seems to be going great with the wedding preparation. I’m so happy to hear that. I cannot believe that summer is here, though. Where did the spring go? Anyhow great haul, Kim 🙂

    I’ll be damned was ok but not really good I hope you’ll like it better than me. I’m so curious about the Deborah Coates series. It sounds really good. And I also have Ever after, I can’t wait to start it! Happy reading!

    Wow! You have mad organizational skillz! I bow down and worship at your feet. *does the ‘I’m not worthy’ move* lol Though I knew you would tackle Mt. Wedding with little difficulty. 🙂

    Oh! Another Transplanted Tales? *runs to NetGalley* Yes! *pumps fist* Of course, I still have to start this series, but guess what? I have them all! mwahahaha!

    Best of luck with the wedding planning! My daughter was married in December and we had a wonderful time together. My least favorite part was finding a dress — I kept thinking I was going to lose weight, but of course I never did . . . it was much for fun choosing her dress!

  11. Kristin

    Is it me or is this wedding going FAST?!?!? And are you doing everything or what!?!?! It sounds FABULOUS!! Great job finding your dress, too! I absolutely can’t wait to see pics later this year!!!!!!!!!!

    Awesome award package – you totally deserve it for all your hard work and you really should get more awards! Bloggers rock!

    Ever After is going to be awesome if it is anything like the other books. It’s a shame that the Goodreads rating is so low when it is still a few months out from being published.

    The wedding planning sounds like it is going pretty good and time will fly until then too with so much to do. 🙂 Enjoy all your new books and the Award package too. Have a fantastic Sunday!

    Wedding planning can be so much fun, and so stressful. I hope all goes well for you and your daughter!

    Awesome award kit! Starbucks gift cards are my sort of gift.

    Ahh you must be SO BUSY but hey it sounds like so far so good which is great! 😀

    yay for receiving the award, you totally deserved it 🙂

    I’ve heard great things about Graham’s books but have yet to read one myself so I cannot wait to see what you think.

    Also Book of Life! 😀 I want to read book 1 but it’s size is intimidating so I am going to be on the lookout for your review!

    HAPPY READING!

    Congratulations on your award!! I’ll have to try the strawberry romaine salad. I’m always making a strawberry salad with spinach, toasted almonds and store bought poppy seed dressing, so I’d love to try this one. The wedding planning sounds really fun (but stressful). I hope you have a great week!

    Wonderful book haul and congrats again on winning the award! It must be fun to be recognized for the hard work you do here every day! By the way, is your daughter getting married in your yard? Just wondering because you mentioned an arbor. If so, then I guess that would be a September wedding. Weather should be nice then. Enjoy the preparations– it’s a great “chore” to have.

    Sounds like you’ve had an incredibly busy week, but you got a lot of wedding stuff done! Congratulations again to your daughter, and blessings on you all as she heads into this new stage in her life.

    Your new books look great YAY for The Book of Life! I (got it too and can’t wait to read it.) The Casey Keen books look cute. And I want to check out your review of The Promise — as soon as I can spare a few minutes again. We just got home from the lodge where we spent the weekend, and I’ve got 7 people coming to stay tonight — lots to do to get everything ready for them! Have a great week, Kimba!

    So happy the wedding details and arrangements are coming together nicely.

    Congrats on all the books, I knew you would get Ever After. I am actually pretty excited about it and am going to try to read the other ones before starting this one, I think the OCD freak in me will pitch a fit otherwise.

    I still need to read A Discovery of Witches – and what’s hilarious is the other day my DAD brought it over in his hand from the library, he had borrowed it to read never knowing it’s been on my wish list forever, baha! I didn’t have time to read it while he had it in his possession though so I’m hoping the e-library has it and that I can find time to squeeze it in somewhere! I hope you like all of your books and congratz again on your award, that’s awesome and well deserved!

    I hope all the marriage prepping is going well! Like April, I still have to read A Discovery of Witches as well – its size is putting me off a bit, but I’ve heard such lovely things. Maybe this summer will be a good time to read it (:

    Gosh, the wedding is going to be here before you know it!

    Can you believe it’s almost the end of June, the wedding will be here before you know it. Congrats on that awesome award. Winter has well and truly arrived here in Australia (nothing extreme like you guys get but cold enough for us to whine and wish for summer lol) Have a great week and happy reading 🙂
