Welcome to The Sunday Post, 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. Happy New Year everyone, I plan on making 2018 the year I Carpe Diem and I hope you grab 2018 and shape it in to whatever picture you want to see!
Between My Sundays – what happened this week
I took a complete break from blogging over Christmas (apart from a few scheduled posts) and I thoroughly enjoyed the time-out. However, now I feel excited to be back, and I’m challenging myself to view my blog with fresh eyes in 2018. I’m not sure yet what that will mean, but I want to jig things up a bit and not keep doing the same old, same old.
Every year, I try to select a word to live by, and this year after much searching a phrase finally called to me. I struggled to find my word, and I contemplated balance and strength, as both are qualities I need. But neither felt right. Then I glanced at my planner, and saw the carpe diem charm hanging off it. And it clicked, it’s a phrase that fires me up. Plus it was all but jumping up and hitting me in the eye! So 2018 is all about seizing the day for me.
Basically I don’t make New Years resolutions anymore. Instead I set monthly goals. In Jan I want to:
Catch up on book reviews
Continue tracking on MFP
Drink my water
Do 1 long run every week

Books I have received to review:
Eepp! 2 authors I love! Happy days.
I’m absolutely obsessed with this period at the moment and plan on binge reading all the Philippa Gregory books. As well as continuing to binge watch Reign on Netflix. Then I plan on watching The Tudors. Can you tell that when I say obsessed, I mean obsessed!
Calling that a wrap on this week. Happy Reading to all.
