Monday Update, Stacking the Shelves, Sunday Post

My Week in Review 2017 #17

This is my week in review, where I update you on my life~ reading, blogging and general. I will also be linking up with some amazing blogs.

Sunday Post

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Life Happenings:

As I mentioned last week, I saw Beauty and the Beast Sunday night. I absolutely loved it!

I also started another new meme this week, because as we have already determined, I am crazy. Of course, life is crazy busy right now, so it will probably be a few weeks at least before I start another one. I’m still working on scheduling this one.

April was my slowest reading month this year, though I still finished 10 books which is amazing. Of course almost all of those were audio books, so that should tell you about my reading time for the month… it was virtually nil. I am really hoping things will settle into place at work and I’ll be able to spend more time actually reading in May, though the way this last week of April has gone, that might be a pipe dream.

This weekend also marks Cheshire’s 4th Birthday! Sadly my crazy schedule meant I couldn’t get up to see him, but I sent some presents and lots and lots of love his way.

And, because my life is not complicated enough, this week brought more drama when my dad fell and broke his ankle in two places… because my parents don’t have enough medical issues already. Needless to say, my stress level is at a peak at the moment and I really want to just sit in a corner and play with books all day, but that just can’t happen… I have too much adulting to do right now.
