The Sunday Post

The Sunday Post
Hosted by:

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

The first week of the new year and I'm on my reading game. 
I signed up for 250 books on my Goodreads challenge. 
Currently 5 of 250 At least I'm not chasing yet which is how I spent the most of 2016 after April. 
The kids will both start back to school so I'm hoping to get even more reading done next week. I'm really proud of 5 for the week and may finish another book before or two by the end of the day. Upping my speed reading. 

Fun posts you may have missed at TRD this week.

I made some headway on my 2016 temperature blanket. I should be into yellow or 80s weather this week. I had to take a long break it was overwhelming but it's back in the works. I'm starting a mermaid tail but I haven't gotten very far just yet. 

Still pushing for 10k a day. My replacement Fitbit arrived so I can start making some headway again. Silly puppy decided to chew the last one.

  1. Wow! You had a pretty busy week! Have a good weekend!

  2. Yay for the Potter goodies. I have read 5 so far too and set my goal at 275. eep! Hope the week ahead is amazing my friend!

  3. Love Harry Potter - I got a few HP goodies for christmas and I just love them. But you always need more! Have a great week!

  4. Well, who doesn't need more Harry Potter merchandise? LOL!! I have to keep myself from even looking at The Book Outlet! My guilty pleasure is digging through the book areas at the Dollar Tree. I mostly end up with books for the library where I work, but I don't feel as bad about buying books for them, and I often find a book or two for myself. Hope you have a great week!
    Check out my Sunday Post

  5. It looks like you have some great reads for your challenge. Good luck! I added 25 more to this years challenge as I had no trouble with last years. I plan to read more of my own books and should be fun:)

  7. Dang! You are busy! What is Bookoutlet?? I've never heard of it but I'm Googling it b/c you got some awesome books from them, hopefully really cheap b/c that's a lot of books!!! Princess Dracula has an amazing cover, too. Makes me want to check it out!!

    I love those mermaid tales that people knit!! They are so beautiful and I hope you share yours when you're done!! And that's one crazy temperature blanket!! I'm afraid to ask where you live :D

  8. My goal isn't as high as yours, but I feel like I'm on my game, too. Here's to a great year! I love your temperature blanket.
