The Sunday Post (31 January)

Sunday Post
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly of Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share our 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 can't believe it's the end of January already. It seems like it's been ages since we brought in the New Year, but tomorrow is February!

I've had a very busy week of visiting friends and family this week. On Monday, I visited one of my friends from University and her baby boy. It's unbelievable how much he has grown since I last saw him! But it was a lovely catch up and just reminds us that we need to do it more often.

Then on Tuesday, it was my godmum's twin daughters 6th birthday. So we visited them and helped build a few toys and ate cake. And on Wednesday, it was my Granny's birthday and she turned 65th, so my brother, our cousins and I went together and bought her a cute tree print with all our names  and date of births on it.

On Friday, I had a wine and movie night with my brothers girlfriend. We watched Zoolander again, then watched The Brothers Grimm, with Matt Damon and Heath Ledger. It was actually an okay film. I also got a ton of blogging down whilst watching them too.

On Saturday night, we had a massive family meal for my granny's birthday. My main course was okay, but my dessert was heaven - pear and caramel cheesecake. You have to try it.

  1. The Great Gatsby is such a wonderful novel, although it's a little sad. I hope you'll enjoy it :)

  2. I liked your Fangirl review. I read it a while back but really liked it- and Reagan was one of my favorite characters. :) Levi and cath were great.

    Nice post on DNF's. I agree with you, you have to be honest in your reviews but you are cognizant of the authors' feelings too. That's nice, and there's been a lot of discussion about this lately. I think you handle it well.

    1. Aww, thank you so much! All the characters in Fangirl were so brilliantly done. And as I said, authors have my respect just for trying, so I don't want to hurt their feelings.
