The Sunday Post @ caffeinatedbookreviewer 


WHAT DID I READ THIS WEEK:  I finished three books, but none of them were amazing.  They were all pretty good though.  

A Christmas Homecoming  This one was cute but had no substance.  If you want a quick, romantic Christmasy read, you might want to pick this up. 



I also finished Colleen Coble's "Tidewater Inn"  This one was ok, but no as good as her usual books.  3.5 stars

Finally,  finished Debbie Macomber's "Starry Night".  This was my favorite of the three, still it barely rated 4 stars. 




WHAT WAS THE BEST THING IN MY MAILBOX THIS WEEK? I received some handmade cards from Etsy to send to my penpal from the Victorian Letter Writing Guild. 

WHAT BOOKS DID I BUY/BORROW THIS WEEK:  From the library, I borrowed Susan Wigg's "Candlelight Christmas" and Lori Wilde's "A Cowboy for Christmas".

The weather in my neck of the woods..... We've had some wimpy snow.  Pretty to look at, but it's not quite cold enough to stick!

Thinking about.... Holiday planning and budget.  

On the blog last week..... Behind again - this past couple of weeks have been uber stressful

On my reading pile.... I haven't been reading nearly enough.  Over the past couple of weeks I finished Debbie Macomber's "Starry Night" 4* "A Christmas Homecoming" 3* and Colleen Coble's "Tidewater Inn" 3*.   I need something amazing now.  These books were all just ok.

Thank you to everyone who said a prayer for my sister.  She's still in a lot of pain with her broken ribs, but overall not doing too bad.  

The weather in my neck of the woods..... Not nearly cold enough.  We had five days of rain.  I'm ready for the cold and some snow flurries! 

Right now I am.... Waiting for Jennah to get ready so I can drive her to work.  

Thinking about.... As usual, just trying not to overthink. 

On the blog last week..... Bare bones.  Only HHM and The Monday Book Report.  

On my reading pile....I finished "Where the Crawdads Sing" by Deliah Owens.  It was an excellent book.  I give it 4.5 stars.  

On my TV..... (I might be obsessed) 
Hallmark Christmas movies! 
"Christmas Cookies"
"My Christmas Dream"

Before heading into HHM, I have to share some personal stuff.  If you've read my blog before, you my know that my younger sister has end-stage liver disease and we are working toward a liver transplant.  The past six months she has lost a lot of weight, but otherwise, she's been pretty stable.  On Friday, she had a dizzy spell and passed out, landing on her face and ribs.  I met the ambulance and my dad at the hospital.  At first they thought she had a split lip but had escaped any further injury.  We thought they might release her from the hospital.  All her xrays were negative, head, neck, and back CT scans came back negative.  Her ribs started to hurt more, so I told the nurse maybe she was ready for some pain meds.  (She had refused them previously)  When she told the ER dr, he recommended a CT of the chest.  She refused, saying they were sore, but she didn't think that anything was …
