As I mentioned earlier this week, I’m taking a short social media break for my sister’s wedding this weekend. Before I come back online in full force, I wanted to share one more Reading Roundup with you this week.

P.S. Since I’m on a social media vacation, I won’t be responding to comments right away. Rest assured, I will read every one of them, so don’t be shy about starting the conversation without me! And don’t forget to let me know what you think about this kind of post. I’d love to know if you’d like to see this type of post more often.
