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.
I hope everyone in the U.S. had a great, long Thanksgiving weekend! We entertained my family on Thursday for brunch and watching the Macy’s Parade. The morning was a nice break from Turkey and I loved watching the Broadway previews before the parade – Dear Evan Hansen and the Rockettes were my favorites!
We skipped the Thanksgiving Eve Shopping + Mall Walking this year for a good bottle of wine and Christmas Movies. I didn’t realize Netflix was making Christmas movies now – has anyone else watched A Christmas Prince? It’s a very Hallmark-esque movie about a journalist who goes undercover as a tutor in a royal palace. Still not sure what I feel about it!
The rest of the long weekend was spent at my in-law’s farm. We had beautiful 60-degree weather (usually we have snow by now!) and spent the day playing football and hiking with the dogs. My husband convinced me to climb the 100-foot grain bins – have I mentioned I’m TERRIFIED of heights!?! No idea what I was thinking, I couldn’t even let go of the rail to snap a pic (see below for pictures of my family convincing me I wasn’t going to die). At least I hit my bravery-quota for the year!
Lately on the Blog:
Dashing-through-the-snow for Thanksgiving festivities had me taking a mini-break from blogging. However, I did get some much needed reading in as I was completely out of books for review!
- [19 Nov] Sunday Synopsis #11: Get Ready for Turkey!
- [20 Nov] Tycoon by Katy Evans ★★★
- [21 Nov] Ten Authors I’m Thankful For
Read this Week:
My subconscious was acting-up overtime! Anyone else feels the need for some good dragon-slaying, warrior-woman fantasy as they prep for the holiday season? (No? Just me?) I also wrapped Hooking Up, a great contemporary romance by Helena Hunting that’s perfect if you’re looking to escape somewhere warm and sunny for a few hours.
New to the Bookish Library:
Like I mentioned, I was in the mood for some good battle scenes heading into the Holiday Season, but need to start looking for some Holiday books for this year. I love seeing all the good holiday recommendations floating around the blogosphere 🙂
