(The Sunday Post is a meme sponsored by the awesome Kimba at the 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.)
I get approved for Netgalley books sometimes more often then I think I would like but never Edelweiss until this week. I put in a request for two books knowing that I would not get them but it was worth a shot. I was SHOCKED I got accepted for both of the books I requested but not only that I was able to download a bunch more from the same company. Honestly I thought it was a mistake and in a panic downloaded a few I wanted just in case they change their minds. Now I have quite a few from Edelweiss and I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing LOL.
So before I get to the books I got lets me tell you about the books I read this week…
Books and Blogging
I started reading Artifact but unfortunately it just wasn’t working for me so I had to put it down, with the number of books I want to read I honestly can’t waste my time reading books I just can’t get into. I hate having to do that but I love to read and once in a while you can get through a book that isn’t to bad but then you find one that is just of no interest or just moving way to slow. I might try it again at some point but for now I really had to just put it down.
I am so excited to get into these books. I might have to alternate between netgalley and edelweiss for right now. So I am thinking after Sky Jumpers I will start The Luck Uglies or Sea of Shadows since I REALLY want to read this and I loved Kelley Armstrong’s Darkest Power series.

It’s really a slow week and it might be like that the rest of December only because I have so much to do in the coming weeks I don’t have a lot of time to set up posts and promote them like I usually do. Plus I want to concentrate on doing a lot of reading and reviewing books I got from Netgalley and Edelweiss. So don’t worry if you don’t see a lot of activity I will be back in the new year with a lot of stuff to fill up most of my day 🙂
What else has been going on?
I’m still looking for Doc McStuffins get better check up center but today I might have found it. I don’t want to jinx it so I will give you a more detailed update next Sunday. UPDATE: My husband went to Toys R Us this morning and We now have a Doc McStuffins get better check up center!!!! ***happy dance*** Thank you all who helped us look! I am so happy I could cry lol!
Can you believe we only have 17 days till Christmas? I feel like it is happening so fast…a little to fast…
We have the Elf on the Shelf in our house. My kids named him Elfie Pickle he really isn’t a mischief-maker more of a really good hider 🙂
Elfie arrives with a note from Santa, last year Santa told the kids they could hug Elfie goodbye since the year before my son was a mess when he left. This year Santa told the kids that if they are good during the week Elfie was able to bring them a gift of his favorite books because Santa reads my blog (***waves*** Hi Santa!!!) and thought it would be a wonderful idea to help them be more interested in reading. Yesterday they got the first batch of books and they LOVED them. My son was so excited and even thanked Elfie telling him that this was such a great idea. I really try to make Christmas something special and something to remember for my kids so when they have kids they will want to do the same traditions. My mom did it for me when I was little and it really stuck with me as an adult. My husband says I can get a little to crazy but really who isn’t a crazy person every once in a while.
