I have had a great week too. It is nice to hear that you have been taking time to enjoy your guests. I too have been sneaking off to pre-order books. Tis' the time of year. I have to jump over to see what you thought of The Darkest Minds. That one definitely caught my eye, but I have yet to pick up a copy.
Thanks for hosting!
