The Sunday Post #36 - Birthday Week

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer
It's a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things you received, share news about what is coming up on your blog for the week ahead, and more.

I still haven't quite got back into the swing of things around here. Reading is going pretty slowly and I'm still behind on reviews and blogging in general. I'm focusing more on other things I love to do right now. Lots of gardening, crafting, and spending time with my daughter. We've been painting a lot and she's doing so well with it. This kid is going to be an artist like her mama. 
It's still super hot and humid and I'm starting to get pretty envious of all the talk of autumn up north. I just can't wait to open up my house and air it out! 
Oh, and my birthday is this week! I'm usually not so thrilled about birthdays and I certainly don't feel 30 but I'm kind of looking forward to it for once even though I don't actually have any plans for it besides waiting on the books I ordered for myself.

Books I Finished This Week

What I'm Currently Reading

I'm slowly (very slowly) reading through a few books right now. I'm not really in a reading slump. I'm just having a hard time finding some quiet time to actually read. 

I hope you are all having great reading weeks!


  1. I hope you get a cooldown soon. After a super muggy start to the week it cooled off here and the windows are open- it's nice. Too bad the whole summer couldn't be this way. Happy birthday this week!

    You seem to find some good MG reads, I love those covers!

  2. It can definitely be difficult to find time to read. That's great you are finding time for other interests too though. That's so cool that you paint with your daughter. I wish I was more artistic than I was. haha

    Happy Birthday!!!


  3. Happy Birthday. You should enjoy each birthday when it comes, since you will never be this young again.

    Sunday Summary #19

  4. Happy Birthday!!! I would be happy to skip mine..I will be 50 next month, although I have never been happier so that is a plus. Yes..ordering new books as a gift to ourselves is awesome!! Have a great week!

  5. I think it's great you've been having time with your daughter. Family always needs to take precedence over reading and blogging.

    I've been slack on the reading front as well, as I've moved and had a conference. I'm almost up to date on reviews though... given my lack of reading!
