Goodie Basket (55): Weekly Book Haul and Blog Recap

Goodie a weekly feature hosted here at Word Spelunking that showcases all the goodies (books, bookish things, reviews, interviews/giveaways/guest posts, blog tours, etc) that popped up in the Goodie Basket that is Word Spelunking each week.

(This meme is inspired by other book haul memes such as In My Mailbox hosted by  The Mod Podge BookshelfStacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, Showcase Sunday hosted by Books, Biscuits & Tea and Sunday Post hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer )

It's been a few weeks since I've done book haul; real life has been keeping me pretty busy. So this haul is from the last two-three weeks. AND since the last Goodie Basket post I did, this little cupcake turned 3 months old and will be 100 days old September 1st, which kinda totally blows my mind:
Baby Aeicha in her owl hat!
