The Sunday Post #88 (10.18.15)

 The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. I'm also going to link this up with Kathryn's It's Monday post over at Book Date.  
      
Fall is definitely here! We had our first frost this morning and it has stayed in the 50s all day. I'm not complaining one bit as I love this weather - I love needing to wear a sweater and a vest or jacket with a scarf when out walking the dogs. And the dogs love the chilly air - it seems to give them a little extra energy or something - they just want to run around and play :)  Of course, I just want to sit under a blanket with a nice cuppa tea and read, so we have to compromise...a few extra walks and some good snuggle time!!! Luckily they are super warm and love sitting under the blanket with me.

Have a great week everyone!!!

  1. Awesome week in books! We had out first frost yesterday morning and there was another this morning. We finally built our first fire in the wood stove last night too. Perfect weather to curl up under a blanket with a hot beverage and a good book. Happy reading!

  2. I can't wait for it to be colder in California. I miss wearing sweaters and boots but our weather is still in the 80's! It looks like you are getting read for the holidays and Marry Me At Christmas sounds really good. But most of Susan Mallery's Fool's Gold are great to read. I hope you enjoy all your new books and have a good week!

  3. wow you got a lot done. I was excited for fall but its kind of trying to skip the fall weather here and go straight into winter.

  4. Nice haul of books. Enjoy the weather. Melbourne is turning hot but you'd never say today as it's chilly.

  5. A few extra walks and some good snuggle time sounds like a good compromise. I've been reading on the couch with a hot mug of tea or cocoa, and a warm blanket on my lap and a cat by my side. :)

    You got a great book haul and I'm looking forward to your reviews this week. Have a great week!

  7. I need to find some nice Holiday-themed reads for the upcoming Winter. I'm a bit stuck on the halloween-esque reads at the moment though. haha

  8. Love the idea of curling up with cup of tea and blanket and reading! I thoroughly enjoyed reading Christina T's post on BEA which included yourself! Sounded wonderful even though I know it was a while ago.
    I have The Infinite Sea to read too, as you introduced me to Beatriz Williams and I thought I'd give this one a go too.
    Stay warm!
