Sunday Post #131
It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
Now that's explained, it's on to my weekly recap!
I have finished Christmas shopping. I have posted all that needs posting.
Now I just need to stumble through work until I can log off and be done (Thursday afternoon) and then it's Christmastime! Woohoo!
My back is feeling marginally better but I can sit down now so I'm a happy camper. I can also drive short distances without aggravating it so this is a win!
Today is my mum's birthday and I amazed myself by getting everything posted so it arrived yesterday. Terrible as it sounds, this usually never happens! Probably because I know, in a normal year, I'd be seeing her in a week but alas... Not this year.
Just one and it's an ARC.
Friends With Benefits by Lisa Swift
I absolutely loved When You Were Mine by this author so I have high hopes for this one!
You Had Me At Hockey by Kelly Jamieson was a massive hit for me this week!
I Can Do Magic was a wonderful educational book for children featuring the magic of the natural world and The Pugly Duckling was... A mixed bag, shall we say. Cute but DOGS DON'T COME FROM EGGS! (It really bugged me, lol.)
All the things.
Christmas movie bonanza at the moment! We've watched The Grinch (the new animated one), Arthur Christmas (which is awesome), various hallmark-esqe ones (I'm summarising those in a separate post) and Beauty and The Beast (animated) because I was in the mood.
My kind of Carol of The Bells...
