Weekly Recap #25: Week of 10/29-11/4
It’s time for another weekly recap post of all things happening on and off the blog. This week I’ll be linking to the Sunday Post, which is hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer and to Stacking the Shelves, which is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.
I hope everyone who celebrated Halloween this week had a great time. We had a lot of trick or treaters, although not as many as usual, I’m assuming because Halloween was on a school night this year. I way overbought on candy, so have spent the rest of this past week trying to come up with ways to get rid of some of it so we don’t eat it all ourselves, lol.
I don’t know about you guys but I honestly cannot even believe it’s November. I’ve even seen Christmas decorations going up in several yards already. Where has this year gone? I’m looking at some of the goals I had made for myself for this year and now it’s like ‘Welp, guess they will now be goals for 2018!’
Politically speaking, we’ve got a big week coming up in my state. Everyone around the country is watching our gubernatorial race to see who wins. Because of the way the calendar falls, our election is always seen as a referendum on the sitting President. I’ve gotten a little behind on my blog commenting/blog hopping because I’ve been so focused on the local polls and the news coverage every night when I get home from work. I start watching, planning to only watch for a few minutes, and then the next thing I know, it’s time for bed and I’ve accomplished nothing.
As far as reading goes, I still managed to have a pretty decent reading week, finishing up both Artemis and Starfish, and getting another 100 pages of Hillary’s book read. I also started Wonder Woman: Warbringer yesterday and am really enjoying that so far. This week I’ll be starting my HoHoHo Readaton reading list as well. I’ve decided I’m going to start with Mr. Dickens and His Carol since I think that one is going to take me the longest.
Anyway, I think that’s it for me. Have a great week, everyone!

WHAT I’M READING THIS WEEK
STACKING THE SHELVES
This year went by so quickly, but I call foul when Christmas decorations are up before Thanksgiving, though, my neighborhood has been lit up for Diwali, so best of both worlds. Starfish is everywhere and mocking me. It’s a book I regret not requesting, because the reviews have been glowing. I look forward to reading your review.
I’ve never seen a neighborhood lit up for Diwai before. I bet that’s beautiful! I’m working on my review for Starfish now and hope to have it up in a couple of days. It was a pretty amazing read so I definitely recommend it.
Oh loved that meme!! We actually got a lot of trick or treaters! We do have a dentist and the local school that takes extra candy off your hands which is nice. You got a lot of reading done!! Enjoy your new books and have a great week!
I need to find some place like that because we are drowning in extra candy, haha.
Ahah love the comic at the end. I’m glad you had a nice Halloween. We usually don’t get trick-or-treaters but we have some more kids this year, so we knew we’d have a bit. Granted, we only gave out on small bag of snickers and that was doubling up so not many at all! LOL Oh well, I’m sure my dog appreciated that. Kids scare her! LOL
Awww, your poor dog, lol. I was actually surprised that my cat sat right at the front door watching all of the kids come up to get their candy. I figured he would go hide in the basement but he was much braver than anticipated!
This year has gone SO quickly! I don’t know how it happened.
Right? It’s crazy!
I’m totally guilty of already having Christmas decorations up. Have a great week and enjoy your new books!
Ahhhhh, noooooo! Lol, just kidding. I’ll probably start putting my own up in a couple of weeks as well. Hope you have a great week too!
The year is going by so fast. November already? Where did the time go?! There is so much stuff I still wanted to do in 2017, but, I guess, I only be doing it in 2018. Artemis has caught my interest, so I’ll have to take a look at your review.
Happy readings & Happy November.
Thanks, happy reading to you as well!
I’m excited to hear what you think about Mr. Dickens and His Carol. I asked for it as a Christmas gift from my husband and I hope it’s worth it. It does sound good though. I think Thanksgiving often gets lost in the Christmas shuffle.
Yeah, it sounds amazing. I hope to start it sometime in the next couple of days so we’ll see how it goes 🙂
Hide the candy, till Easter 😀 😀 yes, the year truly did fly so fast, didn’t it. But I am quote excited to make 2018 goals as well 🙂
LOL! That’s a good idea about the candy 🙂
