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 this post finds you well. Another week has flown right by. Mine started with a visit to the dentist for my cleaning and he told me one of my molar fillings is cracked so I’m going back next week for a crown. Aside from that it was an uneventful week, but that’s a good thing. I finished my Halloween blanket and I posted a review and set up a few upcoming blog tour posts. I have 3 blog tour stops upcoming for September.
And I like to bake something from scratch every week because I prefer homemade to store bought. And it’s always nice having homemade goodies available so I baked chocolate chip cookies recently. I offer them to you virtually today. Enjoy 🙂
Onto my updates…..
recently on the blog:
I shared my thoughts on Our Trespasses: A Paranormal Thriller by Michael Cordell
I invite you to come back on Monday the 19th for a book spotlight and international giveaway for A Dreadful Beauty by L.M. Rapp.
in my mailbox:
Yay, In Her Highlander’s Bed by Lynsay Sands arrived via Avon books.
Recently we watched Last Night in Soho which was actually very good. I recommend if you like paranormal thrillers with dual timelines/flashbacks. Also of note, we watched Beautiful Boy which is based on a true story and was heartbreaking and made me cry so trigger warning for substance abuse, but this was an amazing film. I love Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet, they really really deliver here. I feel like this is one of those underrated films. You will need a box of tissues.
Thank you all for the nice comments on my crocheted Halloween blanket. I finished it last weekend. It took me about a month. My daughter and I designed it together. I didn’t realize how difficult it would be to find enough different Halloween granny square designs. The granny square is a classic crochet square, so those were easy but most of the other designs I came up with myself. I don’t like to follow other’s crochet patterns, so what I do is if I do follow a pattern I change it up a little bit. I used a pattern for the ghost applique and the pumpkin squares and also for the border. It is my daughter’s blanket so the design choices and layout were mainly hers.
Funny enough, I had all this yarn in my stash already so this was a great stashbuster. I only had to make a trip to the yarn store for one more orange ball.
I freehanded a balloon applique as a nod to Stephen King’s IT.
All done, 28 squares total. I think I’ll do a Christmas one next, I haven’t decided though.
That wraps up my updates for now, how was your week? Happy reading! Are you enjoying the Fall weather?
