The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news ~ A post to recap the past week on my blog and share news about what’s coming up in the week ahead.
What’s been happening since my last Sunday Post:
My mom and Noah’s birthday. Friday was my mom’s birthday and today is Noah’s birthday! My youngest is now 19, and I can hardly believe it. What sorcery is this?
Book event with Megan E. Freeman. I did an author event with Megan at the Barnes & Noble where I work. She was in town for some school visits because her book was nominated for the Rebecca Caudill Award (which is Illinois’ award for 4th-8th grade students), so I figured it was the perfect opportunity to arrange a bookstore event! It was really fun to do a discussion event with her, and the event was a great success!!
American Writers’ Museum. On Friday, Megan, my mom, and I went into downtown Chicago. We visited the American Writer’s Museum, which had some cool interactive exhibits, had a great lunch, went up to the top of the John Hancock building to see the view of the city, and took a water taxi ride along the Chicago River. We also tried to visit the Bean and a bookstore, but the Bean was under construction and completely blocked off, and the bookstore had closed last week. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
What I Read:
- I finished listening to Two Dark Reigns by Kendare Blake and then I finally listened to Five Dark Fates. That’s right, it only took me four years, but I finally finished this series!
What I Watched:
- I’ve still been watching more Survivor! Will I ever watch anything other than Survivor? Outlook is hazy, ask again later.
Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post:
- BITE-SIZED REVIEWS OF BETWEEN MONSTERS AND MARVELS, THE SWIFTS, A WORK IN PROGRESS, AND THE LAND OF BROKEN PROMISES
- SEPTEMBER 2023 MONTHLY WRAP-UP ROUND-UP LINK-UP AND GIVEAWAY
- IT’S TIME FOR THE CYBILS AWARDS: I’M A ROUND 2 POETRY JUDGE!
