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 New Year! I wish you all a happy, healthy 2022. I hope you are doing well. How was your holiday?
It’s been an eventful week. I got sick this week with a stomach bug which today I’m finally feeling better from. Then yesterday we lost electricity from around noon till almost 9pm at night so not fun at all. The power company had some kind of equipment damage and my neighborhood lost power then it took them forever to fix since it was New Years Day.
So, this is my usual weekly updates post but also quick a yearly wrap-up of my 2021 reading year. Onto my updates….
in my mailbox:
The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins and these bookmarks were a gift from my daughter for Christmas. How pretty is this edition? And she got me handmade bookmarks one of which has a Stephen King quote on it. Also shown is the yarn bowl I received for Christmas. A yarn bowl is a bowl with a slot where you thread your strand of yarn through as you crochet so that it doesn’t get tangled up and or fall to the ground while you’re working. I love it, this is one of those knick-knacks I’ve always wanted but never treated myself to. This one says “It’s crochet, it’s knot knitting”.
Her Last Affair by John Searles arrived via NetGalley and the publisher.
The Silent Sea on Netflix is very interesting and I recommend. We have just two episodes left.
Also of note, 1000 Pound Sisters is crazy and entertaining and I’m still watching Sister Wives which I’ve been watching since day one. What are you watching?
My 2021 Reading Year
My reading was meh again this year. I read 14 books which is not good but at least I read somewhat. This has been my normal since 2020 hit. Before that I would average around 30. Has this happened to anyone else?
Favorite Book of 2021
The Four Winds by Kristin Hannah
A Head Full of Ghosts by Paul Tremblay
Later by Stephen King
Seven Perfect Things by Catherine Ryan Hyde
Favorite bookish moment of 2021:
My daughter and I met author Nicholas Sparks!!
That wraps up my updates. Goodbye 2021 hello 2022! As usual, I’m aiming to read more in 2022 and now that my daughter and I have been reading books together to discuss them, I think I will get much more reading in.
What was your reading year like? What was your favorite book of 2021? Thanks for stopping in 🙂
