(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.)
In blogging news it’s been rather quiet (thank god) I have spent most of Friday and Saturday organizing my blogger book (that I hand write) and putting all the info in a calendar/notes/reminders on my iPad. I want to be a little more organized with what I have been doing because I always feel a bit stressed. I actual feel much better and seeing it lay out is clearing my head a bit. I know I am doing double work by writing it and inputting it on the iPad but it’s all about getting it out of my head and someplace else so I can see it instead of thinking about it.
I am also trying to come up with a plan to organize my monthly reads. I want to schedule what I read during the month. I know what you are thinking, WHY that seems so stressful but I have a thing about schedules which is probably why my real life is so unorganized, I just can’t seem to get it together because I change it so much but with blogging for some reason I feel like I can. I am very OCD when it comes to schedules and as much as it might seem that I am not organized, I might be a lot more organized than I think I am, I always need to change what I am doing to make it better and write over schedules all the time. I probably should see a doctor about that 🙂

I am also going to try and have the review for After the End this week. I just have to finish writing it.
What I read, currently reading and going to read
So this week I was a great reading week 2 finished books that were a solid 4 star and 1 I am in the middle of that I am really enjoying.,/p>
I finished Understudy but Cheyanne Young, I posted the review on Friday (see above)
I was also able to finish Of Monster and Madness
I am planning to write the review for this one soon, I know a lot of people who LOVE Edgar Allan Poe might have an issue with the liberties she took but I took it as it was and enjoyed the story a lot. It’s not a retelling it’s a mash up of Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Jack the Ripper and Edgar Allen Poe.I really enjoyed it.
I am now reading The Looking Glass by
I am enjoying this book
Two creepy books in a row. I am loving it 🙂
Next I plan to read You are Mine by Janeal Falor and then Full Steam Ahead by Valerie Chase
Books I received, downloaded and added.
I didn’t do a lot this week, but I couldn’t help myself and I download The Dolls by Kiki Sullivan from Edelweiss, I saw it a few times and just broke down and got it
The Fires of Calderon (Balance Keepers #1) by Lindsey Cumming I didn’t even read the synopsis, Her book the Murder Complex destroyed me it was the longest book hangover I ever had so I am really looking forward to this one and might not be able to wait to read it 🙂
I also Won First Born by Tricia Zoeller on her blog. Yay!
What else is going on?
I spent all day on Saturday making Gravy, for those non-Italians that’s tomato sauce, however my cousin from Italy calls it Bolognese, so whatever you call it, It takes me all day to make the gravy and meatballs. It’s so yummy and I make enough to last for a while, plus with Easter coming I have to make more so I have it for Easter Dinner, which is at our house this year.
Here is what it looks like in the pot and the meatballs are in there too…yummmmmm! 🙂
Ok you can call me a dork or whatever but when it comes to this Sunday night I don’t care. As you already know and have probably been ignoring, I love watching WWE wrestling (yes I know it’s fake) I have been enjoying it since I was a kid and now watch it with my kids. We have fun watching it. Well this weekend is WrestleMania 30 I am so excited. I have been looking forward to this day since last year 😉 We get out the snack and all sit around the TV and yell and laugh. It’s my favorite kind of Sunday night.
So tell me what have you been reading and up to this week?
Hope you all have a fantastic week!!!
