Sunday Post #76 and Stacking the Shelves December 25th, 2016

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 on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. See rules here: Sunday Post Meme

Merry Christmas!  Didn't know if I'd get around to posting one of these today, but I decided to go ahead and do a really quick post, especially since it will be the last Sunday post of the year.

Last week on the blog:
Lots of promo posts, which were easy to get done what with all the Christmas festivities going on this past week.  Still got in 2 reviews, although barely.  Had an adventure with a pair of Christmas patterned Lularoe leggings that I wore to work on Thursday.  Got home to find that there were several holes in the backside of them, big ones, right on my butt!  I'm hoping that it didn't happen until I was getting into my car after the 3rd store I went to that night.  So embarrassing.

This week on the blog:
  • Promo posts:  Insidious by Victoria Evers, Holiday Hearts Awakening by Fiola Faelen
  • Waiting on Wednesday
  • Cover Reveal:  The Talisman Chronicles by T.M. Franklin
  • Reviews:  Prude (Labeled Book #1) by Jordan S. Gray, Holiday ebooks mini-reviews
  • Possible reviews:  United by Melissa Landers (audiobook), The Secret of Ella and Micha by Jessica Sorenson
  • End of the year wrap-up post
  • Let's Get 2016 Over With a Giveaway - Part 4
So I need to do a final wrap-up post for the year talking about how I did on all my challenges, as well as doing a sign-up post for any challenges I want to do next year.  I hope to get all the above reviews done as well.  I'm also working on getting my new calendar set up for 2017 for my blog.  Trying a new type because I liked the cover of it so much, but hoping I don't end up going back to the same type I used this year, because the one I already bought was so expensive. Working on reading Diary of an Oxygen Thief by Anonymous to decide if I should really have ordered it for my school library. 


Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  As usual of course there were way too many ebooks to share, but only a few physical books, so this will be short and sweet.






On the left is my 2nd book from my most recent round of the Great Paperback Pay It Forward group on Facebook.  In the middle is the hilarious coloring book that I found when I was searching for another coloring book for a customer one day at the bookstore.  As it was only $7.99, I couldn't keep myself from ordering it and buying it.  I just need to invest in several flesh colored colored pencils for the shirtless pages.  And the last book on the right I found at the Dollar Tree this past week.  

Fortunately I've been getting rid of some books through my Let's Get 2016 Over With a Giveaway, although I need to actually get the boxes in the mail!  And I will be posting a fourth giveaway this week after the third week giveaway ends on Tuesday.  I also got a replacement copy of After by Anna Todd to make up for the copy I loaned my sister that got pretty damaged before she got it back to me.

    1. Oh no! That is no good! Sorry you can't get them in Canada, can you order on ebay? Although after my experience, I'll probably never order from ebay again, both of the pairs I ordered now have holes. :-( Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I hated having to wear tights when I was going to work...I could never get through a day without snagging or ripping them on something. It drove me mad! I swore never to wear them again and I've stuck to that...it's trousers all the way for Chuckles! Hope you had a good festive period!

    1. Oh, but these aren't tights, they're leggings, more like pants, like yoga pants you might say. I don't wear tights or hose. But these are cute. And I've not snagged any that I know, I have no idea how these got holes! :-) Anyway, thanks for visiting!

  3. Oh my gosh I am PARANOID about holes in my leggings. I am always afraid I might have a hole that I didn't notice. Ugh! Hope you have a great week!

    1. I went to wear my other holiday leggings that I'd worn last week with no problems, and they now have holes in them! Fortunately I saw it before I even left my bedroom. But I guess I'll never buy any from ebay again, stick to from my Lularoe consultants. I did end up wearing the cool dinosaur ones I got from a consultant today, and they were fine! Thanks for stopping by!

    1. And mine are not able to be repaired the way the holes are. :-( So I was so excited to find two holiday pairs for a good price on ebay, when they were so hard to find. But now I'm out for both of them, because the other pair had holes when I tried to wear it again today. Thanks for visiting!

  5. Oh my, that is embarrassing. I hate when things like that happen. Nice haul you got. I would like to see how that coloring book turned out when you get the flesh colored pencils.

    1. I can't wait till I can get to it. Not like I don't have a ton of other coloring books to color first. Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Unhauling must be fun though and stress-relieving! I also hope you had a very Merry Christmas and a good time with all your friends and family :D Hopefully everything with calendars and getting ready for the new year will work out well for you.

    1. I did have a pretty good Christmas. Kind of low key for a change, but that's okay. I hope my new calendar gets on track as well! Thanks for visiting!

  7. Oh no! Your story about the leggings had me laughing, but I'm sure it was unpleasant at the time!!

    1. You have to find the fun in it, right? If you can't laugh at yourself, things get too stressed. Thanks for stopping by!
