The Sunday Post (13 December)

Sunday Post
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly of 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 we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

I'm starting to get more into the Christmassy mood now, especially when they play Christmas music on the radio during my drive to work. And I think I've almost finished my Christmas shopping. My name must be Flora, cause I'm on a roll this year (*cringes*  that was just so bad, I shouldn't make jokes).

I also went along to a Christmas Fair at Glamis Castle. It was okay but the marquee was too small for the number of people and you couldn't move. But the Castle tour was pretty cool and I learnt so much local history.

Last Week on the Blog:

  1. Learning more about local history is awesome, Lauren, even if the venue was too small for all the people who wanted to participate.
    I am thinking about reading Firsts soon, too, it looks really good, and so different.
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

    1. I can't wait to get started on Firsts tonight (hopefully).

      Hope you have a great week too!

  2. Looking forward to what you think of Night Circus. It's about 11 books from the top of my reading list now. I love the Christmas music too. Funny thing though. I don't listen to it at home. Just when I'm out and about.

    1. I'm still not to sure about the Night Circus. I've taken a break from it just now. The descriptions and writting is beautiful, but I'm struggling to attach to any of the characters.

      I've been listening to a lot of Christmas music at work. Which is odd as I used to work in a supermarket and hated the constant music at this time of year.

  3. I'm getting in the Christmas mood as well! My roommate and I listened to Christmas music on the 2 hour drive back to our home town and then we went to our high school's annual Feast of Carols, which is the most gorgeous Christmas choir concert anyone has ever seen.

    I really hope you enjoy Firsts. That one just sounds so interesting to me. Have a great week!

    1. It definitely sounds like your getting into the Christmas spirit! Feast of Carols sounds lovely.

      I can't wait to start Firsts hopefully tonight.
