The Sunday Post (4 December)

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.

Holy cow! How is it December already! This year has gone by unbelievably quick!

I had a rather successful week this week. I finished my Christmas shopping! I'll probably still end up buying the odd thing here and there, but all the main presents are wrapped and ready for delivery. Now I can buy a Christmas present for myself haha!

At work on Thursday morning, we put the Christmas decorations up in the office so we now have a little Christmas tree and some fairy lights and snowflakes dotted around the office. Then, on Friday afternoon, we had a "team-building" exercise on our floor where we had a cuppy, ate some cake and made paper chain Christmas decorations for the hallway. Really it was just an excuse for hilarity. No work was completed at all that afternoon!

And as we get into the hectic busy festive period, I've decided that for the next month I will only be posting one review and Top Ten Tuesday a week, as well as my usual Sunday Post if I have time. I'll still be around, but when everyone is off at Christmas it's so hard to keep up with the blog. I think I'm also going to take a week long break from blogging the first week of January, just for a wee bit of a rest.

  1. Yay for having your shopping done! I've bought one thing lol. Fantastic Beasts looks so fun I still need to see it. and Frost Blood looks great!

    1. I'm usually so bad at getting my shopping done but this year I made it my mission yo get it all done before my last pay day before Christmas haha! So glad I managed. The Fantastic Beasts screenplay is so good and I'm desperate to see the movie now.

  2. Sounds fair to have a bit of a rest! I'm actually thinking of the same thing myself. hehe. And ooh, I've heard good things about The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett! And I do love that cover. And I'm intrigued about Frostblood so I hope you have a good time with both of those. :D

    1. I think we all deserve a bit of a rest around this time of year when it's so busy in other parts of our lives. The Lizzie Lovett cover is adorable too. I can't wait to read it and Frostblood so I just hope they're as good as they sound.
