Monday's Reading Recap

I never got a chance to let everyone know that my birthday was INCREDIBLE!! I celebrated the last day of my 20s at Groundlings with a group of friends, I ran my first 5k at Disneyland with my fiance...

I Disneybounded as Ariel, hence that "coral" in my "hair" lol! :)
I had lunch at Disneyland, finally saw Frozen, and my incredible cousin, mom and fiance threw me a surprise party the night of my birthday! I WAS SHOCKED!

My sister-in-law, niece and nephews were even there from out of town and we went to Disneyland together! SO PERFECT! I really should post this stuff over on my personal blog, but The Book Barn is where my heart is right now, so there! ;)

So anyway, all that said: I didn't finish any books the week of my birthday! NONE! Can you believe it?! So sad! I tried to make up for it this past week. At least I'm way ahead in my 2014 reading already! I've almost already made a Bingo for the Book Bingo Challenge in which I'm participating! If only I could bring myself to read something non-fiction! ;)

Last Week I Finished Reading: Sailing Out of Darkness by Normandie Fischer, Faking It by Elisa Lorello (re-read) and Paper Towns by John Green (FINALLY! I feel so bad it took me so long because my future-SIL let me borrow it! Sorry, Deanna!)

This Week I Plan on Reading: I'm not completely sure, but perhaps Finding It by Cora Carmack and Shatter Me by Taherah Mafi if they become available through the library.  Or else Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis!
