The Sunday Post #30

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.


This week was thankfully a lot less stressful and busy as the last one. I still had to work a lot, but somehow I felt like I was totally in control of my time and I was able to plan more. This also means I don’t have a lot of new stuff to tell you guys but this week was much better.

Luckily for me I had another free weekend. On Friday my boyfriend and I went out to dinner. We went for Sushi and it was really good. A perfect way to start the weekend.
On Saturday my mom and I went to another wedding event. This one was even better than the last one. There were a lot of stands to see and we really got some great new ideas for the wedding. Before we got engaged I never thought there would be so many different things to consider. Sigh.. But my mom and I had a great time.

Books & Blogging:

Reading and blogging wise I’ve been doing good this week. I’ve been able to read for at least two hours every night and I also had some time to do some blogging at night after dinner. On Monday I even spend six hours working on my blog and preparing posts. I hope I can keep this up the upcoming weeks. My new work schedule came out this week, for the month of November and December, and I pretty much have to work the whole month of November. So I’ll try to do as much as possible in these view week before November starts.

Bookish Quotes:


  1. WOW, that's tough for November work wise, Maureen! I have so much admiration for nurses, I can't even begin to tell you. You make someone's day brighter and better, when they are not feeling well and can't even be in their own bed. You help heal them and I'm sure you do so with smiles and encouragements.
    Your new books this week look great, I hope you'll enjoy them all :)
    Wedding planning sounds both like fun, and like quite a bit of work.
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

    1. I'm really curious about The Silend Children. It sounds like a good one.

  5. Ugh,that schedule! You must work in retail. Stay rested so you don't end up ill. Wedding planning is fun, but yes it can get overwhelming. Have a wonderful week!

    1. Yes.. Life as a nurse is definitely hardwork sometimes!
      Have a great week ;)

  6. The Silent Children looks interesting Maureen! I'm glad you were able to control your time better this past week and enjoyed the wedding event, but hope you don't feel TOO overwhelmed with the planning.

    I've never gotten married but have been bridesmaid a few times and so often the bride's tried to do too much and gotten stressed in the lead up.

    1. Weddingplanning is definitely overwhelming. I'm really afraid I'll be to stressed in the last view weeks before the wedding. So that's why I'm trying to do the things I can now and maybe prevent that from happening.
      Have a great week Deborah! ;)

  7. I'm participating in the Attack of the 14 Nights of Halloween Giveaway hop also! I'm so glad to have found it! Happy reading and have a great week! :D

    1. It sure is an awesome hop! ;)
