Weekly Recap (Week 4) Second Christmas

Happenings in Week 4 of 2021

This week has been a busy filled week, I am loving seeing the number of books I actually read this past week, I just read so many addicting books this past week so again I got behind on reviews so this weekend I have a lot coming out, but I guess that is what happens when you work eight hours and just wanna relax and read. I really need to be better about keeping up on reviews and commenting more so I do apologize if I have been more absent. I might have picked up quite a few addictive reads which are great for my numbers. I do love starting the year with so many fun reads. Today though I am celebrating a second Christmas as my sister and her family couldn’t be with us originally late last year due to weather conditions, so they are coming down so I am not gonna complain about good food.

  1. Tanya @ Girl Plus Books

    Your book photos are so gorgeous. You really have a knack for creating pretty displays/flat lays. Hooray for a second Christmas. I hope you have a great visit with your sister.

  2. Sam@wlabb

    If unwinding with a good book is what you want to do – do it! Glad to hear you are finding so many great books. I can relate to pushing off reviews to read more. I do that too. Then, I am overwhelmed by all the reviews I have to write.

  3. Nadene

    I am looking forward to reading your thoughts on Running on Diesel.

  4. Carole @ Carole's Random Life

    It can be really hard to keep up with everything after a day of work. I have been playing catch up most weekends since I get so behind during the week. Nothing wrong with taking the time to read.

  5. Ann Lorz

    You had a really good week. I loved Munro and can’t wait to hear what you thought of it.

  6. Sophia Rose

    Hope the second Christmas is fun. LOL, once in a while I let reviews pile up while I keep reading. I figure it doesn’t do anyone much good if I toss out slip shod reviews, but I also don’t wait too long so I forget what I want to say.

    Lovely new stack and I’m looking forward to Munro as well.

    Have a great week, Renee!

    Sounds like a good week. I read so much more slowly than you, so many times, I’m reading the same book as I was the previous week. I did pick up a couple audiobook novellas for review from favorite authors. They both were a lot of fun. I’m currently listening to the fourth Kat Holloway mystery and I’m engrossed! I spent most of last week recovering from my cold and thankfully I’m 99% better now.

    I hope you had fun with your sister Renee!
