ICYMI (In Case You Missed It) Sunday is a new meme that I am planning to feature on the blog every week. It is based on the Sunday Post which is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer, which was in turn inspired in part by the In My Mailbox meme. Basically, it allows me to let you know what went on the blog this week and anything interesting that is going on. It will also allow me to showcase any books I receive like the Showcase Sunday which is hosted by Vicky at Books, Biscuits, and Tea.
So this week I am (hopefully) on time with posting this. I’m writing it Saturday night anyway, so hopefully it will post itself. I’m crossing my fingers that it does anyway.
This week has been jam-packed full of Bout of Books 10, and to be honest I am VERY pleased with my progress. I’ve also managed to not stress myself about it this time around, which yay! 😀 Cannot believe that today is the final day, but hopefully it will be a good one.
Hope you’ve all had a good week.

No books for me this week.
