Linking up to The Sunday Post hosted by Kim at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer – a weekly meme where fellow book lovers post updates on life, blog happenings, and their recent book hauls.
The Holiday season is looming and for once, it’s nice to say that we enjoyed a QUIET week without too much excitement because 2018 is going to be here before we know it! Next week starts the mad dash from family-to-family for Thanksgivings – we have three Turkey Days next weekend alone. We’re also hosting my family for brunch to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade – I love watching all the performers and big balloons!
Last night was the warm-up Thanksgiving as we attended our first Friendsgiving of the season. We had a little too much fun (accompanied by a little too much wine!), but feeling extra thankful this morning for our Family-by-Choice. Happy Thanksgiving to all of my U.S.-based Blogging Buddies!
Lately on the Blog:
Lots of late nights in the office last week catching up on the work I missed while on vacation, so I didn’t get much of a chance for Blog Hopping or Reading. In fact, I think I’m out of scheduled posts or books to review – guess I know what I’m doing today!
- [12 Nov] Sunday Synopsis #10: I’m Back in Action!
- [13 Nov] The Fortunate Ones by R.S. Grey ★★★★½
- [15 Nov] Bookish Confession: Giving Up on Your Goodreads Goal
- [16 Nov] The Scotch Queen (Volume 2) by Penelope Sky ★★★
Read this Week:
I enjoyed the first two books of Meghan March’s Mount trilogy. Both books were good (solid 3.5 star reads), but short enough that I’ll wait to write a review until the last book is released in December. Looking forward to diving into Christmas reads after Thanksgiving!
New to the Bookish Library:
Very small book haul this week with only two new books (kind of proud!). I have a feeling I’ll be picking up a few Holiday books for Thanksgiving travels – let me know if you have any can’t miss recommendations!
