My Week in Review 2017 #11

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:

After starting last week with snow, we started this week with a warm sunny day. I’m hoping this weather is here to stay. I can see lots of wild daffodils along the side of the road now as I drive to and from work. It makes me happy.

Of course I could have done without the other start to the week… namely the time change. I am not a fan. I have never been good at dealing with Daylight Savings Time and personally think it should be abolished, but that’s just me. I am always so groggy after the change and it takes a few days before my body gets with the program. Those days are incredibly unproductive as I walk around in a haze.

All of my book orders from last week have started arriving, so my book haul is pretty big this week. I still have an order from Book Depository that I haven’t received, as well as a rather large order from Book Outlet that should be here next week. I’ve put myself on a strict budget after this, so I will only have a few new books each month starting in April {in addition to audio books I check out and any eARCs I receive}.

I also put together some photo shoots for Bookstagram and am planning to feature some new photos there. I should get enough shots from these sessions and more this week to see me through a couple of months.

    1. Yeah, I laughed at that one too… even though I am not young, I often feel like I don’t know how to “adult”.

    1. Oh yes, I have way too much fun filling my virtual shopping cart and clicking “Place Order”, and I still have 2 more orders coming!

    1. Thank you! I used to stick very much to one genre, but as I’ve gotten older my reading tastes have diversified. While I still lean towards the romance {whether it be adult or Young Adult}, my only real requirement is that a book be good!

  1. Nice assortment of books. New books are starting to make me anxious because I already have so many on my TBR mountain. I did recently get a Kindle copy of Carve the Mark which might be read sooner than later since a review book I should have read just didn’t catch my attention leaving a hole on my calendar looking for a book to fill it. Come see my reading week here. Happy reading!

  2. Great book haul! I love that cover for To Kill a Mockingbird. And what a great idea to have a photoshoot! It definitely sounds like a huge timesaver. Happy reading!
