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 is all about Christmas preparation, and yes I know it’s still November!
Between My Sundays – what happened this week
I’m flat-out every weekend right up till Christmas with Christmas craft fairs. So I’m making all my Christmas preparations and plans now. I drew up lists, checked them twice, shopped on-line, wrote my cards and pretty much have Christmas all wrapped up and ready to go! Which sounds mad, but I’ll be working 6 and 7 day weeks in December, so there is method to my madness.
Baubles and Books :
As you know, I’ve joined in a Secret Santa swap with some other Irish, English and European book lovers. The books are ordered, and my match has exceptional book taste. I can’t tell you how tempted I was to order extra copies just for me. But that’s not really how this works! Now I’m spying on my match on twitter to get some clues about what little extras to put into her package.

Second Chance Sunday – What happened in the blogosphere:
Lola wonders is a 3 star rating a positive rating?
B B Toady chats about her stormy relationship with YA.
Books I have received to review:
Huge thanks to Penguin RandomHouse Ireland for sending the gorgeous Hygge to me. On first impressions, it seems like this book and me will be a perfect match.
“Full of beautiful photographs and simple, practical steps and ideas to make your home and life both comfortable and cheering all year round, this book is the easy way to introduce hygge into your life.”
Books I have bought:
I bought The Artists Way as I just love the idea of embracing and developing my creativity. Blogging gives me so much confidence in this aspect, and I’m ready to dig deeper. I purchased the package that included the morning pages journal, just because I thought that would be an added incentive for me to actually do the work, and not just browse though the book.
And all I have to say about that, is that my library is amazeballs. They have such a fantastic selection, and the new releases are rolling in quicker than I can read them.
Finally, why not join me on Instagram? I use Instagram to capture a flavour of my life via books, nature and colour. Isn’t this bridge straight out of a fairytale?
So, that’s my week wrapped up. Happy Reading to all.
