The Sunday Post #37 - Birthday Week Recap

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've had a pretty good week. Finally. That slump was really getting to me! I didn't get a ton of reading done but I did read more than I have in the past few weeks so that's something. I'm participating in the Tackle Your TBR read-a-thon and it really motivated me to start reading again. It's still slow going, though.
My birthday was this week and though I've never really enjoyed them in the past, this year was pretty nice. My husband surprised me with a few bookish gifts and took me out to dinner.
I've been (mostly) keeping up with my first instagram challenge and I have plans for getting back into the swing of things here on the blog. I really need to prioritize my time a little better so I can get around to replying to comments and visiting you all more often.

Books I Finished This Week

What I'm Currently Reading

Timekeeper by Tara Sim - I just started this but it has a pretty interesting premise. It's about a clock mechanic who not only fixes clocks but time itself.
Shadows of the Dark Crystal by J.M. Lee - Despite this being fascinating and me participating in a read-a-thon, I'm still reading this. I'd be done if it weren't for my busy birthday weekend. 
The Happiest Toddler on the Block: How to Eliminate Tantrums and Raise a Patient, Respectful, and Cooperative 1 to 4 Year Old - Now that I have a toddler this might be just what I needed because that saying about how it takes a village to raise a child does not always apply. So yeah, I have to resort to books. 

Currently Watching
We are a little behind the times without cable but we are finally watching the newest season of The Walking Dead. So much death. (I'm not very far though so please, no spoilers!)

I hope you all have a lovely week! 


  1. Happy birthday! The Dream looks like a good book, I like the cover with the snowy northern feel.

    I hope you like the new Walking Dead. I had some issues with it but I'm still looking forward to S7.

    1. Thank you, Greg!
      The Dream was actually quite enjoyable. It was very different. Anthropomorphic with a bit of fantasy thrown in. :)

  2. First of all, happy birthday!! I hope you had a fantastic day! I haven't watched this season of The Walking Dead yet - I need to catch up before I get spoiled! :-)
