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….
Hello all. Happy Sunday and happy 3 day weekend. I hope you’re doing well. Labor Day is tomorrow so yay for a Monday off work. 🙂
It’s been a long week that started off with an allergist appointment on Monday after work, where I had to wait nearly one hour in the waiting room just to be seen. I never understand why doctors overbook. I went to see my allergist because I keep breaking out in hives and can’t figure it out. Neither can the doctor at this time so he sent me for bloodwork which I had done yesterday morning and am waiting for the results but which may provide no answers. He did the skin patch test which didn’t tell us much other than I’m allergic to dust mites and cats and I don’t need a patch test to know that lol. In the meantime I have to take allergy meds daily for the next 2 weeks. On a nicer note, we’ve been having some really nice weather these few days and I can feel Fall around the corner, it’s already been cooler in the mornings and evenings which I love. I wish it was like this year round.
onto my bookish updates….
recently on the blog:
I shared my thoughts on:
The Little House by the Sea (Pennystrand Village Book 1) by Tracy Rees
The Thin Place by C.D. Major
I’m halfway through which is an interesting story about twin brothers with a psychic connection.
in my mailbox:
The Soulmate by Sally Hepworth came via St. Martin’s Press.
Shifting and Shenanigans by Elizabeth Pantley came via Partners In Crime Book Tours.
Also in my mailbox, we visited a favorite used record shop/book store last weekend and I found an original hard cover edition of Christine by Stephen King.
This place usually has some good King books for decent prices and I was so happy to find this one for my King collection. I got that hard cover first edition copy of Misery on my shelves for $2 a few years ago at a library book sale. I love a good book find like that 🙂
I binged Bridgerton Season 2 last weekend. So good. I did think it could have been cut down one episode though, I felt like it started to drag on towards the end, but still so good. Also, all the scary things while crocheting so I’ve been watching my fav Halloween movies like the original Halloween and I’ve been making my way though films based on Stephen King books so I just re-watched The Dead Zone yesterday.
I’ve been working on a Halloween blanket for my daughter. We’re designing it together and I’m almost done. I have about 5 more squares to make now and then I have to sew them together and crochet a border.
That covers my updates, for now. Thanks for stopping in. What have you been up to? Enjoy your week!
