The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog…
Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists….
Happy Sunday everyone. First off, I am glad January has come and gone, it always feels like such a long, cold month. We still have February through April though and I am already longing for Spring. It is a chilly, dreary day here, one perfect for lounging in my pj’s and getting caught up on blog-land.
It’s game day. We usually host a get-together at our house, but this year my sister-in-law is hosting it so *yay*. All we have to do is show up, eat, enjoy and go home…lol. Everyone brings something to eat, mostly finger foods, hors d’oeuvres and chips, etc. and we all stuff our faces.
I mainly watch for the commercials and it is tradition for us to do a get-together so it’s always fun. This is the first time in about seven years that we aren’t hosting the party ourselves, but the people who would come to our place will just go to her place instead so it’s the same group of friends and family.
Bookwise, I managed to read 3 full books in January and just about finished a 4th, but I finished that one yesterday. I’m doing good with my reading flow so I hope to continue that and reach my 50 books goal for 2018.
Also in the mail was this nice surprise from my blogging friend from across the pond Lainy. I crocheted her a butterfly bookmark and she sent me a package of goodies. The little journal says “Never Let Anyone Dull Your Sparkle” . Perfectly said. And a Slytherin bookmark (my official HP house) and how did you know I needed a nail file Lainy? Thank you! xo
Reviewed this past week:
Spinster: Making a Life of One’s Own by Kate Bolick was pretty fantastic. I posted my thoughts on it yesterday.
Recently finished reading/review to come soon:
I finished reading Survive the Night (Rocky Mountain K9 Unit) by Katie Ruggle. I enjoyed this one but did have a few issues with it. I’ll post my thoughts on it soon.
Upcoming post this week:
Top Ten Tuesday February 6: Books That Have Been On My TBR the Longest and I Still Haven’t Read. I’ll be listing a few books that have been on Mt. TBR for years like Jane Eyre and Revolutionary Road.
I watched Dave Chappelle on Netflix this weekend and he is hilarious while speaking on some important current issues. It’s nice to see him back again. I especially liked “Equanimity”.
That covers my updates this week. What are you reading/watching? Enjoy your Sunday! Are you watching the big game?
