Sunday Funday is a weekly(ish) post I’ve started to recap the bookish (and sometimes not-so-bookish) happenings in my life the past week! Feel free to participate, just link back!
September 15-21, 2014
This week has been a rather enjoyable one! Fall weather has decided to descend (at least for now) and the cloudy and cooler weather has made for lovely and cozy reading conditions. It also means that I have thrown myself into full Halloween season mode, finding a costume, starting to plan baking projects, and purchasing my old childhood favorite, Halloweentown, on DVD. My kitten Rocco has, by contrast, not enjoyed this change in weather and was quite frightened by his first thunder and lightening storm. He’s also quite hyper and frequently tries to engage me while I’m reading, so a few nights ago I left my reading spot on the couch for two seconds and came back to find him like this:
I’ve also started to create a master spreadsheet of all the books I own in a Google doc, as I’ve seen other bloggers do this to help keep track of their inventory more easily! It’s been challenging yet satisfying, although it’s slow going and has definitely made me realize how many books I own!
I just finished Gone Girl today and boy, was it not at all what I expected. My review for it will be up this upcoming week.
What to Read Next?:
Both of these titles have been sitting on my shelf for far too long (and I’m one of the last to read them, I’m sure!) Now that I have time in my reading line up, I’m not sure which series to start first since I’ve heard so many good things about both!
What Happened Here This Week:
Monday: The One Lovely Blog Award
Wednesday: I compile part one of my Halloween TBR List!
Thursday: I join in on the meme Harry Potter Moment of the Week
Friday: The launch of my new feature, Fairy Tale Friday!
