Hello, everyone! I'm sure most of you have noticed the silence on my end and I apologize for that. Especially to those who come to my blog and don't see a post up (only book blitz). And as much it kills me to say this......I'm not going to be on again until at least January or earlier, hopefully. For those of you that are wondering why, read on......
Apart from having college finals, my parents have decided its time to move (talk sbout stressful) and they've found a good place but moving isn't easy, especially on the busiest month of the year. 
(Basically my room except I also have soooooo many toys and clothes, that I apparently just shoved in my closet.)

(This is just one bag...didn't want to show the rest…
