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 had a wonderful holiday. We had a great Christmas here and since I was off the rest of the week, I’ve spent much of it relaxing, watching cheesy Christmas movies on Hallmark, and just have a good time in general. I made it to the theater to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, and Pitch Perfect 3. I thoroughly enjoyed all three films, with Jumani being the biggest surprise. I was leery going in, just because the original had Robin Williams and how do you compete with that, but they did a surprisingly nice job with the movie, especially in terms of updating it with a more modern feel. My son absolutely loved it.
On the blog, you’ll also probably notice that my list of upcoming reviews is pretty much the same as it was for last week. Since blog traffic usually seems to be pretty light during the holidays, I decided to stick with year-end type of posts and save my reviews for after the holidays. I’ll be posting a new one tomorrow to kick off 2018 and will resume my normal blogging schedule this week as well. I have several reviews ready to share as I did get a fair amount of reading done this week too.
As you’ll see from my Stacking The Shelves list, Santa was also pretty good to me this year too. Based on the reviews of my fellow bloggers, I feel like I have a lot of great reads coming up in 2018.
I also took time this week to decide what reading challenges I’m going to take part in and shared those on Friday. I picked a couple more than I usually do, but I’m hoping they’ll all be a good fit for me in terms of what my reading goals are for 2018.
Hope everyone has a Happy New Year and a wonderful first week of 2018!
