Week in READ-view is a post I have posted on Sundays telling you what I have been up to this week and what I read or am reading. The Sunday Post is a meme sponsored by the awesome Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, post a recap of the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
On the Blog & Real Life:
So here we go again, I am about to rant, the bus company informed me on Friday that after Thanksgiving they would no longer be driving my son because the Essex County Commission found a cheaper service to drive him…UM NO! I have had such a bad experience with these bus companies that when I finally find one that not only I am comfortable with but my son is also they go and change it on me. I have called the Commission and left a message hoping they will do the right thing so I don’t have to lose my shit again. Apparently they can pick drivers for special needs kids but they have no understanding of how a change like that will affect a kid with special needs. And I am sorry but I prefer quality over cheaper because the cheaper you go you get what you pay for. I seriously can’t take this shit anymore, they should be more concerned with the welfare of the child and not how much money they saved. Rant over!
This week has been just a normal week. Today is my daughter’s birthday party for her friends at our house. I invited 9 girls to come over and play and have only gotten back 2 responses. So I guess we will see if anyone else shows up. I was so annoyed that no one responded but even just her and her two friends should me a lot of fun. We are going to watch Inside Out and have pizza, play with all Julia’s toys and eat cake. So I might not be around today until later.
That is correct, Sign Ups begin this SATURDAY! I am so excited to be going back to basics and but with a few additions from other COYER Challenges in the last two years. This one will be very laid back to help you get to all those books you have been dying to read just taking up space on your Nook or Kindle.
Bookish Resolutions and the 2016 Reading Assignment Challenge is also coming back on Dec 1st and 2nd with Sign Up posts for next year. Both of these challenges have gone through some major changes to make them more interactive and fun.
In other blogging news, I am trying to get organized since I have a lot of things to do before the end of the year and need to try and get every thing set up and scheduled. I was able to finish a few reviews, review posts and have them all scheduled. I also have a few review books that I promised I wouldn’t take but couldn’t help because they were the second book in a series. I am hoping to keep this going with my reading since I now have a bunch of reviews already scheduled for January.
I got a book this week that I will list below however I am a little confused as to what I can do. The cover reveal for the book is on November 19th, which I will be doing, but the cover is already on Goodreads so I am not sure I can show it here or not since it hasn’t been revealed yet….see why I am confused….so below you will see the text for the book I got but not the cover, if you want to see the cover you can go to Goodreads or wait till next week. I don’t know what I am suppose to do lol.
I am participating in HoHoHo Read-a-thon and have yet to finish my first book but I am hoping by the time this is posted I will be almost finished with it and on to the next Christmas book. I plan to read novellas for the rest of the read-a-thon since I have so many.
So heartbroken with everything going on in Paris, My prayers are with them today and always.
