On Wednesday I joined in with the Same Book, Different Cover meme and shared my usual WWW Wednesdays! post. On Thursday I shared my May Wrap Up and Favourite Books of the Month post. On Friday I joined in with the First Impression Friday meme and also shared my list for the 20 Books of Summer 2018 Challenge. On Saturday I posted my usual Stacking The Shelves post, as well as taking part in The Six Degrees of Separation meme.

  1. I too loved Janel’s review of Needful Things. I’ll be ordering it tomorrow.

    I wear glasses. Though not as much as I used to. I hope that doesn’t mean I’m getting dumber 🤣

    Thanks for the mention!

  2. Thank you for featuring my recipe 🙂
    I’m off to check out the glasses meaning you’re smarter article in the hope that the scientific evidence is good and I can start telling people it’s not just that I’ve weakened my eyes from too much reading!!
