Hey everyone! 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 that everyone’s new year is off to a great start! We had our first major snowfall here this week, and by major, I mean about an inch, lol. We don’t do snow well here though so an inch was enough to close my son’s school for two days and because it still hasn’t melted off the roads, we’re waiting to see if he will have school tomorrow. We’ve also been in the single digits all week and we don’t do that well either. As I’m typing, my back door is frozen shut and my cat, who normally loves to go outside and explore for a bit, is sitting here looking at me like “Please fix this, Mom. Make the cold white stuff go away!” It’s supposed to finally hit 40 degrees here tomorrow and I’m so excited. I think it will be the first time in my entire life when I’ve been happy to see a Monday, haha!
All of these cold and miserable temps made for a great reading week though. I stay curled up in my reading chair for days and have already managed to read three books for 2018 and have gotten a pretty good start on a fourth. That of course means that I’m now way behind in writing reviews and in visiting your blogs, but I’ll be blog hopping and writing reviews today so hopefully I’ll be all caught up by this evening.
Oh and, kind of random, but I also got hooked on the cutest new Netflix series. It’s called The Worst Witch and is based on the book series of the same name by Jill Murphy. I had never read the books before but I really enjoyed the first season and can’t wait for new episodes this March. It’s a bit like Harry Potter except that the school is an all girls’ school. It’s a lot of fun and I highly recommend it!
