Sunday Post/Mailbox Monday 9/11/22 Updates

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….

Hi all. I hope you’re having a nice weekend. Thank you everyone for your kind comments last week about my hive issues/allergist appointment. I realized later on how whiney I sounded, I really shouldn’t be complaining about something so trivial like having to wait to see a doctor.

This past week flew by so quickly. I worked fully remote the whole week which is always nice not having to commute to and from the office. The weather has been great this week and I can already feel Fall around the corner with the cooler mornings and evenings. I crocheted alot and am just about finished with the Halloween blanket and I finished reading one book. Today I got a few posts scheduled for upcoming blog tours and I scheduled a review post for this upcoming Tuesday.

I took this pic of the view of the Freedom Tower from the ferry to Liberty Island a few years ago:

onto my bookish updates…

coming soon:

My thoughts on Our Trespasses by Michael Cordell will be up this week.

in my mailbox:

I treated myself to the new Stephen King on release day and I promised myself I’d read it this month.

Crochet Magical Creatures 20 Easy Amigurumi Patterns by Drew Hill came via the publisher. How freaking cute is this?!

The Frederick Sisters Are Living the Dream by Jeannie Zusy came via Atria books and it sounds both emotional and entertaining.

Also of note…
2022 Fraterfest Challenge
Fraterfest is coming! Will you be reading along? I may or may not make a list, I haven’t decided yet. Making the book lists is half the fun though.

The 28 Halloween blanket squares are complete and I sewed them all together already. I’m working on the border and that will most likely be finished by the time this post goes live so I’ll share the finished pics next updates post.

The weather was beautiful this past week, this is Otis on one of his walks. Enjoy your week! Happy reading.

  1. I am glad you got to work fully remote this week. So did I! It was nice to be able to work from home the entire week. I took a vacation day Friday and so had a short week since last Monday was Labor Day. It’ll make next week seem extra long. LOL

    I hope you enjoy King’s new book as well as The Frederick Sisters Are Living the Dream. They both sound good.

    Have a great week and happy reading!

    • Working remote is so convenient. Yay for extended weekends! It throws me off though because no matter what day I come back to work I’ll think it’s Monday lol
      Thanks and happy reading this week!


  2. I wish I could crochet! I’ve taught myself to knit and will probably be able to do the same with crocheting. Just need to find the time!

    The Jeannie Zusy book looks like fun! And Fairy Tale is on my TBR as well for sure.

    Have a great week ahead and happy reading and croucheting!

  3. I definitely can feel fall coming, we’ve been cooling down (especially at night) and it just feels like it’s going to be a quick autumn this year.

    I’m looking forward to Fraterfest this year 🙂
