I just realized that I included a copy of Another Day in the Death of America in this haul when I’ve already mentioned it on my last Life Lately update. Lol. I swear books are everywhere in my house that I can’t tell what’s up from down anymore. Anyway, aside from Another Day, the rest are books that I ordered during Book Outlet’s Boxing Day Sale. So you can’t say that I’ve broken one of my resolutions already. Technically, these books were bought in 2016 but the package came just last week.
Back to the reality for most of us, I suppose. Kids are going back tomorrow so they’re not happy about that. Hubby was working day shifts the entire week so we had a date night which doesn’t happen often because of his schedule at work. That was really nice.
This month, I decided to only read books that have been sent to me for review. I really want to read the books that I’ve been buying and I want to get ahead. I don’t have too many, anyway so that’s a good thing.
My bullet journaling is not going well, to be honest. If you guys ever plan on starting one for your blog and reading activities, make sure you know which format to use beforehand. I’ve had many a restart but I’ve finally settled on one. Keeping it simple, primarily existing of lists. Ultimately, I only really want to keep track of my inbox and outbox anyway, so it’s good for now. Perhaps I’ll show you flip through one of these days.
On Tuesday, Little Heaven by Nick Cutter will be featured on the blog. I’m a part of the tour and Simon & Schuster Canada is sponsoring a giveaway for the book. I’ve been reading it the whole weekend, and let me just tell you that it’s freaking creepy. This is my first Nick Cutter book but I do own Troop which I’ll probably dust off my shelf after I finish reading my for review pile.
I think this is all for now, dear readers. My bed is calling me.
