The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kim the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Grab a cuppa and let me bend your ear (eyes?) for a few minutes with all my bookish news. This week I am backlogged in reviews and trying my hardest to catch up.
Between My Sundays – what happened this week
Lots of reading and television watching
This week was so much better. I had to take one day off work to bring my Dad for a hospital procedure but the rest of the week was just a normal week. Which was a welcome relief. I got blog posts written and posted. Even better, I binge watched The Gilmore Girls in preparation for the new shows and revisiting my old favourite show was such a treat. Plus I got a lot of reading done. And I even got time to watch the final of The Great British Bake Off, but now I feel really sad as that is the last show ever from this team.
Backlogged in Review Writing
I do have a zillion reviews to catch up on. Maybe a slight exaggeration but I’m going to knock a few out this week as they are dragging me down a bit until they are done. Thankfully I have great notes on all the books. I use my note to book PDF to do this. Do you have a copy? You can get one by signing up to my email list (link in the sidebar). It’s a lifesaver for those times when you are reading all the books and writing none of the reviews!
What I haven’t been so good at is healthy eating and exercise. Whenever I get stressed, like I have been lately over my dad, I turn to food. I’m frustrated with myself but am ready to jump back on the wagon now. And I’m already looking forward to how much better I’m going to feel. Bad food and lack of exercise just makes me feel sluggish. Enough now!

Books I have received to review:
Thanks to Netgalley and Hachette for a copy of Tattletale. It’s a psychological thriller and these lines in the blurb made me hit that request button “Once upon a time, there was a little girl who believed in fairytales. Now she is out to get your happy ending” Sounds intriguing!
Books I have bought:
It’s time to get ready for this years HoHoHo readathon and so I’m stocking up on festive books. The readathon is hosted by Kim @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer and it’s a lot of fun. Well worth joining in and getting a head start on your Christmas reads.
Finally, why not join me on Instagram? I use Instagram to capture a flavour of my life via books, nature and colour. This week, I’m celebrating all things spooky, superstitious and pumpkin flavoured 🙂
So, that’s my week wrapped up. Happy Reading to all.
