Nomi’s Weekly Wrap Up 135

Nomi’s Weekly Wrap Up is a combined meme with the Sunday Post hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer, Bought, Borrowed and Bagged hosted by Braine @ Talk Supe 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.
We had Anzac day last weekend, and it was pretty hectic. My cousin was the guest speaker at the luncheon in her home town, because she served in Iraq and Afghanistan, so we made the trip back to see it. There was not a dry eye in the house. We then packed up and got home in time to do our sports on the Sunday. It was a very exhausting weekend.

However, since Monday it has been a little more laid back. I was able to catch up on some things that I have let slip blog wise, and get in a bit of TV.

I saw that the next Dork Diaries book is coming out in a few months and emailed Simon & Schuster, again, to see if I can get it to do a review with my daughter who is 10. Anabel said that she would also send the previous book. Jordan was so excited to get it and the surprise diary!

    *squee* I'm so glad to see you picked up Getting Lucky Number Seven!! (hopefully it was my doing?!?) You love it. I sure did. I'm jealous of your S&S just emailed them and they sent them? I'm glad your week was a little relaxing. Mine was decidedly not. *ha* And this week won't be either since I have to finish up stuff before I leave for RT on the 12th. I hope your week is off to a great start!

  13. I really want to read you review on ASA, I need hope to continue this series *hides* Hope you have a wonderful week.<3 Benish | Feminist Reflections

    Wow!!! You did an amazing job this week with your haul and keeping up with your blog while being so busy. I got caught up last week on everything, but I have finals next week so hopefully I won't slip up too much with my stuff. Glad you had a great week and I wish you luck for this upcoming week.

  15. Wow I love the new look of your site. Very colourful. Hope you enjoy your new books and this week is a little quieter for you.

  16. Somehow I totally missed that your site was completely redesigned. I've been seeing your posts via email and hadn't clicked through to your site - I'd noticed your new signature and new titles, etc, but didn't realize the whole site was different! I love it!
