Let's chat about what's going on this week... on my blog.. on other blogs... on the internet... and just everywhere! I link up my post to Sunday Post hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Reader and Stacking the Shelves.
It's been another busy week with family. My dad came to see me and then I came back to Utah with him to visit my parents. It's been a great trip. My mom took the week off so we have been doing some tourist type adventures. We did get to tour one of the LDS Temple's in Ogden UT. That might not sound like a big deal but in UT it is. I am not LDS so I would never be allowed in a Temple normally. There is a new one being built so it hasn't been blessed yet so the public is allowed to take tours. The building was beautiful and I loved seeing inside. I just love to see new things.
On the blog:
-This is still Utah Book Month so in the last two weeks I have covered two Utah authors! Kristen Chandler is my first one and the second is Natalie Whipple.

Books Books Books:
No new books this week from the library. I returned them all since I am on a trip. I am catching up on some graphic novels that I have ARCs of and I am also reading a book that was given to me by an author that my mom works with. So it was independently published. I don't normally read books like that but the first one of his was pretty good so I was happy to get the second one.
