Nomi’s Weekly Wrap Up #69

Nomi’s Weekly Wrap Up is a combined meme with the Sunday Post hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Stacking The Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. I’ll share news, post a recap of the past week and tell you what will be happening on my blog in the week ahead. I will also tell you about the books and goodies that I have managed to pick up.
Welcome to 2014 everyone!! I hope you had a great time over the break! We sure did!! The family and I went away and spent plenty of time in the sun and water. My 6 year old son had his first go at knee boarding and we were so proud of him… Here’s some pics!

I am trying to get back into my blogging ways, but it is a little hard as the kids are still at home too… for the rest of the month, but I am slowly getting there. I am currently running a quick New Years giveaway if you are interested too…

How did you spend your break??

These are the few things that I posted while being away!!

    Oh the beach look like it was fun!

    You got so many books and some with sexy covers, rowr. Happy reading!

  10. Heard good things about Ruined, I hope you enjoy it. I totally LOVED Slammed! Enjoy them all.


  11. Love your vacation pics - looks like you guys had lots of fun in the sun!! We're frozen out here - they actually cancelled school for tomorrow because of the sub-zero temps (a high of -13 with a wind chill of -45!!!). Ugh!

    I just reviewed The Fiery Heart yesterday - loved it! And I also loved Slammed and Point of Retreat. Looks like you've got lots of good reading ahead of you!

  12. Glad you enjoyed your vacation! Great haul & happy reading.

    While you are knee boarding! I am freezing in the snow and ice storm! Looks Like you had a lot of fun!!

    I'm so jealous of your beautiful weather. I don't have snow, but it's been in the 30s here, so no knee boarding! And yay - I'm excited to see your Chicagoans Vampire posts (I see you got the last two) and to see your thoughts on where the series is going next. Happy 2014!
