August 2013: the month of CRAZY…In August, I became a massive fail. I read a total of 5 books and posted 5 reviews & 1 discussion. … Yeah, I don’t even have a really great excuse. Wait, you know what, working full time is a great excuse. *pouts* I’ve just reached the point of feeling overwhelmed, so I need to […]
