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 rainy Sunday everyone, the last one in April. This month flew right on by. I took an unscheduled mini-blog break these past two weeks. I had the regular every day stuff going on so I didn’t get much blogging time but I will be playing catch up today and blog-hopping. I want to see what everyone is up to. My skin allergies are better, no more shiny Vaseline face lol, so thank you for your comments and advice on that. I did get some good reading in these two weeks and we took a day trip down the shore last weekend which was really nice.
Yesterday I participated in Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-A-Thon and I read up to the 79% mark of Earl Interrupted (The Daring Marriages #2) by Amanda Forester on my Nook. I want to finish that up today so it will make 3 books read for April, which is great for me since last year in April I didn’t read one single book.
Onto my mailbox:
Dishcloths to Crochet: Fun Designs to Brighten Your Kitchen! came via Dover/NetGalley and I am excited to whip up a dishcloth using one of these vintage patterns. I have to look through my yarn stash, I need red and blue cotton yarn for the one I want to make.
I will have 3 book reviews to write up! First of all, Oh. My. God. The Pisces by Melissa Broder was fantastic and shocking and weird. Has anyone read this one?
Also coming soon are my thoughts on In Places Hidden (Golden Gate Secrets) by Tracie Peterson which I finished last week and Earl Interrupted (The Daring Marriages) by Amanda Forester which I aim aiming to finish today.
I am still working on my aunt’s blanket, it is coming along nicely. I am itching to start a new project, but NO, I have to finish the blanket first. I keep seeing so much crochet inspiration online like this and this , pretty cardigans and shrugs, but I will start that next.
Those are my updates, I will close with pics of our shore trip last weekend. It was such a nice day, especially since the 1 1/2 hour drive down there was easy with no traffic. The boardwalk and beach were nice and quiet since it is still the off-season but the shops and places to eat were all open.
My legs. 🙂
My youngest walking along the sand. It was breezy and sunny and we brought our blankets along to wrap ourselves up with.
Chocolates from a favorite shop on the boardwalk. How cute are these chocolate heels especially with Mother’s Day around the corner?
I love the caramel apples from this place.
That wraps it up for now. Enjoy your week. What are you reading? Doing?
