What I'm Reading and Weekly Wrap Up for 4/29/13

Can you believe it's already May?  This year has flown by so far. 

This week I am featuring the last 2 weeks of reading since I didn't get this post up last week.

I finished 3 books, made progress on the Wind-Up Bird readalong, and I'm reading 4 other books.  

Blogging has been tough this week.  I can't seem to write a review but hopefully get my mojo back soon.  

What about you?  What have you been reading lately?  I hope your week has been as good for reading as mine has!  Leave a comment and let me know!
