The Sunday Post #2

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer.

In each Sunday Post, I share a bit from the past week in my personal life along with the non-book media I enjoyed. I also list some highlights from the past week on the blog and my blog plans for this week.

Personal

The first week of 2020 has come and gone. Kind of strange to think about, but they were fairly uneventful days in my personal life, even New Year’s Eve, which I spent at home with the spouse and fur babies after being away for several days.

Today–not so much uneventful. I learned upon waking up that Belle, the hamster in our household, went missing some time during the night after her cage fell over. We have yet to locate her. My best friend (who brought the hammy with her when she moved in with us during this past summer) is trying not to freak out. Since I’m a night owl and hamsters are apparently nocturnal, I will be looking for Miss Belle tonight whilst my family sleeps. Wish us luck!

In other news, I participated in an end of 2019 readathon hosted over on Litsy by @jb72, @TheReadingMermaid, and @Andrew65. (By the way, if you haven’t already checked out Litsy, what are you waiting for? It’s basically Instagram for readers.) #24b4Monday is a readathon hosted semi-regularly; their end of 2019 version had the goal of reading for 24 hours from December 27th through December 31st.

My total reading time: 19 hours and 5 minutes

Not bad considering I was pet sitting at a friend’s where I watched a lot of TV lol.

The Books I Bought

A red Moleskine 2020 weekly planner, paperback of Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier, paperback of The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton on cushion with a black dog lying curled up in the background.
Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier and The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton were my haul. I also got a 2020 weekly planner. I received a few Barnes and Noble gift cards for Christmas. 🙂

Media I Enjoyed

  • More of The Expanse. I finished season three yesterday. It only gets better!
  • Reading Envy: a podcast in which an avid reader talks about the books she’s been reading and has others on to do the same. I’ve been listening for years (her voice is so soothing)–and was even a guest myself! I’m in the process of catching up with the last few episodes.
  • Re-watched Brave and Finding Dory. I needed the feel-good.

Blog Highlights

Plans for This Week

  • I’m sharing my participation in another 2020 reading challenge that I stumbled upon today.
  • Book Review: The Suspect by Fiona Barton
  • Top Ten Tuesday: Most Anticipated Book Releases for the First Half of 2020
  • Currently Reading and Quote of the Week
  • Mini Audiobook Review: Whose Body? by Dorothy L. Sayers

Hope you have a good week!

  1. Good luck with the hamster! We lost my hamster for a while when I was younger….ended up finding her in a dry, unconnected toilet that was stored in our basement. She just happened to peek over the edge and we all saw her! And I’m jelly that you could read for that many hours. I don’t know how to get away from my family that long! Happy New Year!
