The Sunday Post : Get your bookish news – holidays are coming!

December 17, 2017 meme, The Sunday Post 19

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.  Thank goodness that holidays are coming because I’m ready to collapse into an exhausted heap at your feet!

Between My Sundays – what happened this week

Holidays are coming!

One more week!  I can probably do this!  But I badly need to focus on that time off now to get me though the next week.  As I write this it’s 6am on Saturday morning, because that is literally the first  free chance I’ve had to blog all week.  So I’m here adding up what I’ve left and it’s 4 more work days, plus 3 Christmas Craft fairs.  Then I’m DONE.  Ready to put my feet up, and chill with my badly neglected books.  Until January anyway.  After that I’ll be back to working just one full-time job which sounds easy peasy to me at the moment!

Comments

If you commented on my blog lately, apologies for the lack of response.  It hasn’t gone unnoticed, or unappreciated but I haven’t had time to reply.  Soon I’ll be on return visits, and that’s a promise.

Baby, it’s cold outside

We had snow last weekend.  OK, it didn’t last long, but for a little bit I felt like I was living in a winter wonderland.  Nice as it is to look out at though, it does make travel difficult so I’m glad it didn’t linger on.  Still there is nothing like the first snowfall of the year, it’s so magical and I get all excited like a child when I see those flakes falling.

Books I have received to review:

 

On a bright January morning in the London suburbs, a family moves into the house they’ve just bought in Trinity Avenue.
Nothing strange about that. Except it is your house. And you didn’t sell it.

 

 

 

 

 

I requested Our House on Netgalley because the blurb intrigued me.  Thanks to Simon & Schuster UK for the review copy because I need to find out ASAP what the hell is going on!

Purchased Books:

None this week.  I just about have time to shower, never mind find time to browse book shops or online sites.  But I feel a massive splurge coming on!

Library Haul:

 

A member in my online bookclub looked for books with a Romanov setting, and everyone recommended this one.  As I’m fascinated with that family, and love books set in Russia, I immediately went to the e-book section of my library and was delighted to find a copy.  For anyone else obsessed with this time period,  another book that everyone recommended was The Secret Wife by Paul Gill.  I’m on the hunt for that one too.

Calling that a wrap on this week.  Happy Reading to all.

    I like the sound of ‘Our House’! It reminds me of a scam that was going on here a while back, where a family would go on holidays, and a foreign scammer somehow found out, and managed to sell their house out from under them. Like wtffff?! And there was nothing they could do, as it was all legal! New rules have been put in place since to prevent it from happening again :/

    Snow is so pretty, but I am so glad we don’t have it. I don’t even like driving in rain lol

    Oh that winter wonderland looks great, hope you have some Christmas day. I went for my first summer swim at the beach today, the water was so warm! Hope life slows down and you get some rest and relaxation and lots of reading.

    I am so, so ready for my vacation, too, Trish. It’s not even funny how tired I am. And people notice it, too!
    Thanks for sharing my discussion post 🙂 I have since heard from NetGalley, and they explained that publishers can decide whether or not to limit regions with their ‘wish for it’ button. And I have noticed that not all publishers do. So I guess all is not lost 🙂
    Sending you hugs for the last week of work before the holidays.

    You are very busy! I hope things will slow down for you after the holidays. A Christmas Fair does sound fun! 🙂

    The snow always looks nice when it’s falling but when it’s over and you have to clean it up, it’s not that nice anymore, lol

    I hope you have a great week, Trish! Happy Reading! 🙂
