The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It's a chance to share news - a post to recap the past week on your blog,
showcase books and things we have received, and share news about what is
coming up on your blog in the week ahead. You can find the rules here:
The biggest event this past week was Thanksgiving. It's usually a low-key day spent with family and this year was no exception. Gathering at my parent's house, spending time with them and my sisters (plus my niece, nephews and brothers-in-law) is always special. My older sister brought a dice game called Left Center Right and we had a blast playing that in the afternoon. We played with quarters instead of the chips it came with and it was a riot to watch everyone get excited when they won and would rake in their $4 or so in winnings. :) It was day of good food and good people and I was feeling very thankful for those who were around me. And very thankful for those who are serving overseas and were far from home this holiday.
I try my best to stay at home on Black Friday. There is *nothing* I want badly enough to deal with the crowds and the traffic and the people willing to come to blows over a half-priced toy or marked down TV. It's crazy, isn't it? Or is it just me? Tell me in the comments if you're a Black Friday shopper - I'd love to hear your take on it! :)
Having a few days off work has been fabulous! Four days in a row kind of feels like a mini vacation. Loving it!
*LAST WEEK ON THE BLOG*
Amazon delivered a box of happiness to my door this week. Before We Were Strangers by Renee Carlino (which I am crazy excited about!), Until the End by Abbi Glines (I'll be marathoning the Sea Breeze series after the first of the year), and a paperback copy of Scarlet by Marissa Meyer to replace my hardcover version (so much easier to read the paperback).
I also received Attachments by Rainbow Rowell from Book Depository. I won a giveaway at The Regal Critiques and that was my pick. It's one of my favorites by Rowell and I'm so happy to own a physical copy of it. And I'm in love with the cover of this UK version! Big thanks to +Ruzaika Rifaideen and +Veronika Éles for the giveaway!
I managed to rein in my one-clicking last week and there were only a few additions to the Kindle:
Amazon had the complete With Me in Seattle series by Kristen Proby available in two bundles. I've seen so many great reviews of the series and have wanted to start it for a while so it seemed like the perfect time to nab the whole series. And Sweet Addiction by J. Daniels was FREE which was too good to pass up. :)
So how was your week? Did you have a good Thanksgiving (for my American friends)? Are you a Black Friday shopper? Taking part in the #HolidayCramathon? Buy any new books? Fill me in on what your week was like!
