Sunday Post - 192

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~this meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~ It's a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Another sleepless week. Husband was on a business trip to Chicago this week so I was able to temporarily see what it would be like to be a single mom. I don't recommend it. Baby Girl slept horribly this week. Apparently she's hitting the stage where separation anxiety sets in. It's no longer out of sight out of mind. She actually realizes that we can leave her and she misses us. Sweet, but boy do I struggle with no sleep. My mom came to hang out with us Monday night and Tuesday. That helped. Wednesday we went to lunch with my sister-in-law and her mom. And Thursday I got my haircut. Saturday we briefly went to see my grandmother who was here visiting. Hubby surprised me with ordering me a new vacuum cleaner with our tax return money. I loved my old vacuum but it was starting to not work so great and with having a little one that will be crawling around on the floor soon, I wanted to know my floors were as clean as they could be. Speaking of, Precious is a lot more active all around and so reading while nursing (just about the only time I have to read anymore) is becoming more difficult. She always tries to grab my phone. That being said, I've been reading painfully slowly, and because of that, I've put off getting any new books until I can finish some of the ones I already have. I'll try to get caught up on responding to blog comments and visiting others this week.

That's it for my shelves and recaps of my past and upcoming week. What did you add to your shelves this week? Any bookish news you want to talk about? Let me know!


  1. I can't wait to read your review of Morning Star. I kinda started reading it and then I realized that I have so many ARCs that need attention. Baby girl is interrupting your reading time? That sucks, but you can always listen to a book. I use headphones to get anything done here. Reading is really hard with my little girl and her ADHD, but we manage. I wish I would have put off getting new books so I could get caught up (i have ARCs all the way out to september right now). Have a good week!

  2. I need to hurry up and read Red Rising! I won a copy the other day, so I can't wait to get to it! Hope you have a great week coming up!

  3. Oh yes! It was probably a good idea to stop before you got too into Morning Star so that you could focus on your ARCs. Once you got hooked I don't think you'd be able to put it down. Yeah, I haven't really found a good system for reading or listening lately. I need to give it another try. I've got some ARCs to July but I think that's as far out as I am right now, but at this rate, I still might be behind. Good luck on getting caught up and thanks for stopping by Karen!

  4. Oh yes. The Red Rising series has easily been my favorite over the last year and a half that I've read all 3 books. I hope you get around to starting it soon! Thanks for stopping by Lisa!
