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.
I took lots of time off blogging in December, I just needed the break and now I’m excited to be back in the game. As much as I needed the break and I enjoyed every minute of it, I also missed my connection with all my blogging friends. It wasn’t hugely obvious I was missing as I had posts scheduled but I am sure you noticed that I was slow to respond to comments. Now I’m trying to catch up on all that, slowly but surely!
My favourite book news over the past few months was that the Harry Potter books are available on Audible! I jumped with excitement as I have wanted these since I first heard about them. I think it’s safe to say I’ll be buying these ASAP!
Outside of book news, I’ve been busy. I went to see Imagine Dragons in Dublin and they were fantastic! I loved them before I went but now I really, really love them! Their music is fab. I attended a zillion (very slight exaggeration but that’s what it felt like) craft fairs every weekend, selling our handmade wooden Christmas decorations. I spent lots of time with family, binge watched Downton Abbey and wore a lot of pyjamas over the Christmas holidays. It was such a chill out holiday and was exactly what I needed to recharge my batteries.
As someone who loves New Years, I’m delighted it’s 2016 and of course I’m already scheming for this year. It’s a month of beginnings and that makes me happy. So belated Happy New Year to you all and I’m happy to be back in the Sunday Post fold!
Not a clue! I need to go sort them and count them! About 20ish, I think.

I stayed pretty active over the Christmas holidays as it was just so much easier to find time to exercise when I wasn’t working. Now I’m back to the grindstone but I have my exercise all scheduled and so far it’s going ok. All I need is to stay injury free and stick to the plan!

Books I have received to review:
Thanks to NetGalley and Penguin UK for Our Endlessly Numbered Days. It sounds bizarre! An 8 year old girl is taken by her father to live in a forest for 9 years and he tells her the rest of the world has disappeared. Then in 1985 she is returned to her family home. Like I said bizarre, I can’t wait to get stuck into this one.
Thanks to Chickenhouse for Inferno. I’m ridiculously excited about this one. I adored book one which was Vendetta. It’s Romeo and Juliet meets The Godfather and SO GOOD!
Books I have Bought!
Nuts was a book club read. And happy days it was down to $1.99 on Amazon, that made me very happy! Nothing better than a bookish bargain!
The Midwife’s Confession was a buy with my Christmas vouchers. I’ve already devoured it and am an emotional wreck as a result!
Well, that’s my week wrapped up. Happy Reading to all. How was your week? Any books you were really excited about?
