The Sunday Post #124

The Sunday Post is hosted by The Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to recap the past week, talk about next week, and share news. It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? is hosted by Book Date. I get to tell you what I’ve read recently.

I hope your Thanksgiving was great (again)!

On The Blog Last Week

On The Blog This Week

  • On Monday I review The Stranger in the Woods: The Extraordinary Story of the Last True Hermit by Michael Finkel.
  • On Tuesday I show you my Newbery TBR.
  • On Wednesday I review The Edible Woman by Margaret Atwood.
  • On Thursday I catch up on some tags.

In My Reading Life

I’m still participating in the Tome Topple Readathon. That means I’m only reading huge books for the rest of November. Last week, I finished The Secret History by Donna Tartt. Right now, I’m reading A Game of Thrones by George RR Martin.

In The Rest Of My Life

Five things that made me happy last week:

  1. Thanksgiving!
  2. I ate so many different kinds of pie.
  3. I ran out of books to read, and I may have gone overboard with refilling my TBR shelf. Oops.
  4. I had time to take photos.
  5. I finished all my human Christmas shopping. Now I have to buy gifts for my own dogs and all my friends’ dogs. (Yes, Christmas is for dogs, too. Don’t judge me.)

Take care of yourselves and be kind to each other! See you around the blogosphere!


  1. Can't wait to see what you think of The Secret History. Yay for Thanksgiving and pies. Have a great week!

  2. I unfortunately had the flu. It happens every year that I get a flu shot that I get the flu. I was in bed with audiobooks keeping me company all weekend.

  3. Pie is good.

    I look forward to your tags.

  4. "Ran out of books to read." Is that a thing? Seems impossible.

  5. Oh, I do love pie...and there were many kinds from which to choose at the dinner on Thursday...but, since it was at my daughter's in-laws' home, I tried to behave and choose only one. LOL.

    Enjoy your week, and I keep thinking I've read The Edible Woman...but according to what I've entered on Goodreads, I have not. Hmm.

    Enjoy the new week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  6. Happy Thanksgiving!! I'm glad your pie was great! Haha! I've never met a pie I didn't love. And wow! Congrats on getting on top of your Christmas shopping! I'm pretty far behind this year... Have a great week!

    Here's my Weekly Recap!

  7. I'm glad you had a nice Thanksgiving.
    You're already done with your Christmas shopping? Wow.. I haven't even started yet. Yikes.
    Have a great week and happy reading!

  8. I had to laugh at your turkey Trump.

    Finished your Christmas shopping? I'm impressed. I've barely started...

    I look forward to seeing your Newbery TBR. I'm kinda-sorta doing a Newbery challenge myself. (Sort of, because there's no set time frame.)

  9. I wish I could be the kind of person who gets done with Christmas shopping early. :) It never seems to happen lol. And happy Thanksgiving!! Lots of pie is good!

    Yay for Game of Thrones.

  10. Happy Thanksgiving! Pie is always a good thing! Have a great week!

  11. I've had a slice of pie every day since Glad you had a good one!

  12. That picture. LOL
    You are so ahead of the game. I've barely got any shopping done. Luckily, I don't have too many to buy for. And I adore pie. Any kind of pie!

  13. Love your graphic. Priceless. :)
    Ran out of books to read? Horrors!!
    Mmm... pie.

  14. I'm pretty sure that Trump Turkey just made me loose my appetite XD. I really hope you enjoyed your thanksgiving. And yeah, I had some Pumpkin pie left-overs at my house too. Have a great week!

  15. Pie is always good. I'll keep my eye out for your Atwood review as I haven't read this one but I am a big fan x

  16. "I ran out of books to read" <-- things I will never be heard saying. 😂 I think my books have filed a formal complaint of neglect, because I keep reading the new ones first and checking out books from the library. I really admire that you have accomplished reading all your books. Gold star for you!

  17. Finished shopping??? HAHAHAHAHHAHAHA I haven't even made a list yet.

  18. I love your list - I love pie, too:)). And I'm amazed and a touch intimidated that you have managed to clear out your TBR... I'll never read all mine in a couple of lifetimes - you clearly have a will of iron! I need to read a Donna Tartt book as one of my Creative Writing students keeps telling me what a fabulous author she is - so I look forward to seeing what you make of this one. Have a great week, AJ - and many thanks for popping by:)

  19. No pie at my house! ;-) We didn't actually have a dessert at Thanksgiving. I should make one for this week. Come see my week here. Have a great week!

  20. Ha, I love the photo!! And I think its great you buy for dogs(yours and others). I have one whole pie left!! Have a great week!!

  21. We didn't have any pie. Come see what I'm reading this last week of November.

  22. How did you like The Secret History? I loooove Donna Tartt books. This one's still waiting for me though :)

  23. Love the picture! *giggles* Ooh hope you're enjoying A Game of Thrones!

  24. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    Tome topple sounds like it would throw my reading stats for the year!!! Ha ha. I do love ASOIAF though!

    Have a lovely week!

  25. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and I am guessing you did based on the pie comment :) Don't tell my dogs that other dogs get gifts for the holidays because it is not happening here! Have a great week!

  26. Oh I totally shop for dogs for Christmas!! Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving. And that Trump turkey meme is TOO FUNNY!!!
