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 and happy weekend. I cannot believe we are nearing the end of November and that Thanksgiving is over here in the U.S. I hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving. We had a nice cozy one at home. I cooked this year for us and spent the day in my pajama’s. It was so nice not having to leave the house especially since the temps have been so low lately. I made the turkey and the sides and a pumpkin pie, I cheated with the pumpkin pie and bought frozen crust but it still came out yummy. I took Friday off so it’s been a nice 4 day weekend.
We had the first snowstorm of the season last week and that was a nightmarish commute home from work so I am glad it is over. I hope that’s not indicative of how this winter will be.
Also, we went to see Bohemian Rhapsody recently and it was fantastic. I know it got some mixed reviews but I think it was really a great tribute to the band and to Freddie Mercury. I’d been waiting for this one and it didn’t disappoint. The casting for the band was great and Rami Malek was awesome.

Onto my blog updates…
In My Mailbox:
An ARC of Mind Games (Kaely Quinn Profiler Book 1) arrived via Bethany House Publishers for review. It sounds like a good thriller especially since the FBI agent on the case has a father who was a serial killer.
“Kaely Quinn’s talents as an FBI behavior analyst are impossible to ignore, no matter how unorthodox her methods. But when a reporter outs her as the daughter of an infamous serial killer, she’s demoted to field agent and transferred to St. Louis.
When the same reporter who ruined her career claims to have received an anonymous poem predicting a string of murders, ending with Kaely’s, the reporter’s ulterior motives bring his claim into question. But when a body is found that fits the poem’s predictions, the threat is undeniable, and the FBI sends Special Agent Noah Hunter to St. Louis.
Initially resentful of the assignment, Noah is surprised at how quickly his respect for Kaely grows, despite her oddities. But with a brazen serial killer who breaks all the normal patterns on the loose, Noah and Kaely are tested to their limits to catch the murderer before anyone else–including Kaely herself–is killed.”…

I posted my thoughts on Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn and Love, Faith and a Pair of Pants. I’m Gillian Flynn obsessed lately. Sharp Objects was great and Dark Places was also really good. I am reading Gone Girl now. Love, Faith and a Pair of Pants was a quirky novella but I had some issues with it.
I’ve been crocheting alot lately, especially Christmasy things. I finished up a Santa Pants Wine holder. The pattern over at RedHeart was easy to follow, but I changed the handles a little bit, crocheted them in the round and put a pipe cleaner inside each to make them stiff.
I’ve been making potholders too. I like making these since they are quick and easy. I will give these to family when we see them during the holidays.
I recently found a few of my old 1990’s cassettes when I was looking for old photo albums. I had to explain to my daughter what cassette tapes are and how you can’t just skip to whatever song you want lol. These brought back memories. Some of these have got to be around 27 years old. I remember listening to Guns n Roses on cassette in my bedroom and smoking Marlboro cigarettes and blowing the smoke out of the window so my mom wouldn’t know like it was just yesterday…lol. Ahhh the memories. I thought I was so very cool and angsty in high school.
That covers my updates for now. What have you been up to? Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend 🙂
