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!
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!
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!
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.
