I am linking up to the Sunday Post hosted by Kim of Caffeinated Book Reviewer, where participants recap our week, talk about what we are reading, share any new books that have come our way, and whatever else we want to talk about. I am also linking The Sunday Salon hosted by Deb Nance of Readerbuzz where participants discuss what they are reading and other bookish topics.
What I Am Reading: I read here and there throughout the week, but not as much as I would have liked. If I do not finish How Rory Thorne Destroyed the Multiverse tonight, I definitely will this weekend. Mouse and I are reading the second Dork Diary book together, Tales from a Not-So-Popular-Party-Girl by Rachel Renée Russell (her second time, my first).
What I Am Watching: This weekend my family and I enjoyed Godmothered on Disney+, which was adorable. It was funny and sweet and a perfect feel good movie. I also made my family watch the High School Musical: The Musical: Holiday Special. It was more of a passing-the-time show to have on in the background.
My husband and I have made it to season 5 of our Buffy the Vampire Slayer re-watch. Dawn has made her appearance. And we are on 2nd season of Angel. I had completely forgotten about Gunn. How could I forget Gunn?! We also are all caught up with the Mandalorian. My husband was telling me about all the upcoming Star Wars spin off shows Disney will be putting out. I hope they will be just as good.
Off the Blog: This week was not overly exciting. I went into the office this weekend to sign holiday cards for staff (all of the supervisors and managers are going in together on gift cards and cards for the staff--and each one was personalized. It took me about half an hour to sign them all). I wasn't scheduled to be back in the office until late in the week, and they need to go out in the mail.
We are continuing on our organizing and rearranging projects around the house when we can. I am hoping to go through the mass market paperback books I own and donate the ones we no longer need to keep. I always have a hard time letting go of books, but I try to do so every now and then.
Thank you to everyone for your well wishes and prayers for my grandmother. She is doing well last I heard.
The shelter-in-place orders continue. The U.S. Supreme Court said no to the latest attempt by the GOP to overturn the election results, and a 3rd grade teacher in Minnesota donated a kidney to her school's custodian.
What I Am Grateful For: Feel good movies, hugs from my daughter, Hot Tamales (the candy), and holiday cards.
(Yes, that's a sled. No, it doesn't snow here)
Thank you for helping me decide what book from my TBR collection I should read next:
My TBR List is a meme hosted by the awesome Michelle at Because Reading. It’s a fun way to choose a book from your TBR pile to read. The 1st Saturday of every month, I will list 3 books I am considering reading and take a poll as to which you think I should read. I will read the winner that month, and my review will follow (unfortunately, not likely in the same month, but eventually--that's all I can promise).
Thank you to everyone who voted in my December TBR List poll! I have not had a chance to dive into too many holiday-themed books this year and so decided to make sure this month's choice fit in that category. Mrs. Claus and the Santaland Slayings by Liz Ireland came in with 7 votes and Have Yourself a Fudgy Little Christmas by Nancy CoCo received 8. Ten of you voted for Jasmine Guillory's Royal Holiday. I can't wait to start reading it!
New York Times bestselling author Jasmine Guillory makes her hardcover debut with a heartwarming Christmas romance.
Vivian Forest has been out of the country a grand total of one time, so when she gets the chance to tag along on her daughter Maddie's work trip to England to style a royal family member, she can't refuse. She's excited to spend the holidays taking in the magnificent British sights, but what she doesn't expect is to become instantly attracted to a certain Private Secretary and his charming accent and unyielding formality.
Malcolm Hudson has been the Queen's Private Secretary for years and has never given a personal, private tour...until now. He is intrigued by Vivian the moment he meets her and finds himself making excuses just to spend time with her. When flirtatious banter turns into a kiss under the mistletoe, things snowball into a full-on fling.
Despite a ticking timer on their holiday romance, they are completely fine with ending their short, steamy fling come New Year's Day...or are they? [Goodreads Summary]
Thank you for voting! I hope you all have a wonderful week! Happy Reading!
