Ok don't laugh but Saturday's Coffee Pot Reviews were read and posted as a draft in March and each month I had no room for them..LOL Weds and Thurs were novella read in May and Storm Force was a serial. I only have 4 books that I have to read and write reviews for in July the rest are done.

Have a safe trip. You really loaded the blog next week with a ton of reviews. How did you find the time to get them all squished in? I am reading four to five books a week and that is pushing it. I am off to check out Parajunkee's article even though I am sure it is along the same lines as the article she wrote last year about bloggers losing their originality by posting all these blitzes and cover reveals, which I totally agree with! Have a wonderful holiday!
