The Sunday Post #36 (Even Though It's Monday)


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 info here:

I had every intention of getting a Sunday Post up yesterday but... yeah, that never happened. Between grocery shopping, laundry, addressing Christmas cards (confession time: and a nap), I just flat ran out of time yesterday. But, nothing wrong with a weekly wrap-up on a Monday! 

I'm still bogged down at the office and by the time I get home I am just done. This week should be the end of it, though (I say with my fingers crossed), with meetings and dinners (that I am planning) finally out of the way. 

In addition to work madness, we had a house guest last week so that was something else that threw me off my regular routine. This was a friend of The Husband's who has stayed with us several times before, and he's a good guest, but it's always good to get back to the norm.  


Tuesday, December 6: Top Ten Tuesday was about sharing the new-to-me authors I've read this year. I didn't think I had that many but it was easy to come up with ten! And there are several that I'll definitely be reading more from. 

Wednesday, December 7: Top 5 Wednesday had me picking the books that have been on my TBR for far too long that I *will* be reading in 2017. There was one stand alone, one series I want to start and three books in ongoing series. I'm ready!

    1. I need to one-click The Fall Up before I get to The Spiral Down. I could have sworn I already had it but apparently I don't. And I'm declaring 2017 the year I binge read Amy Harmon. lol

  5. Sigh...I love a good nap. haha I'm glad that your house guest is gone now. Even the best house guest can be a bit tiring, I get that! I hope that your tiring work is over now that it's Friday!

    1. Yes! House guest is gone (hooray for getting back to a regular routine), the worst of the craziness is over at the office, and I even took Friday off (mental health day!). I'm in such a better place than I was a week ago. :)
