It's Sunday Post time! Hosted by the awesome Kimberly over at Caffeinated Book Reviewer
What I Got:
Medium Dead by Paula Paul - I haven't read many historical mysteries and this one with the comparison to Jacqueline Winspear set in Victorian England looked intriguing.
Meet Your Baker by Ellie Alexander - Have I mentioned I have a weakness for any book involving chefs? Especially pastry chefs? Throw in a murder and I can't resist.
Find the Good: Unexpected Life Lessons from a Small Town Obituary Writer by Heather Lende - Really the title says it all on this one. This comes out in April and I'm really looking forward to reading it.
Reading: If You've Got It, Haunt It by Rose Pressey
Listening: Still listening to Secrets to the Grave by Tami Hoag. I haven't had much listening time in the last couple of weeks but I'm almost done with this one.
Watching: I'm loving The Librarians! I watched the first show this week and loved it. I enjoyed it more than the most recent movie. I think this show has lots of potential and TNT owes me one for cancelling Perception. I also enjoyed The Sing-Off. I don't know why but I love acapella. I'm just sad it was a one episode competition instead of the longer ones they've done in the past. I have caught up on this season of Doctor Who. I'm currently emotionally crushed but I have hope that it'll get better.
Off the Blog:
So we have all (J, Paul, Emma and myself) gotten addicted to a trivia game called Trivia Crack. It turns out when it comes to trivia games none of us are good people. There's a lot of trash talking around the house and periodically one us will scream something along the lines of "What!", "You've got to be kidding me" or "Boom" depending on what happened. Right now we're all pretty neck and neck with J taking a slight lead because he can kill us all at sports. Our dinner table conversations have turned to the various weird questions we've gotten. Eleanor came home for the weekend and has joined in the fun. It is good to know that the kids either through us, the public school system or their own initiative do seem to have a pretty broad knowledge of science, arts and history.
I think I've gotten Christmas taken care of. There are a few things that didn't end up being able to do but it'll be fine. I did manage to stop by the mall so the Tornado could visit Santa. When I asked him what he had asked Santa for he informed me that he had so many questions he had forgotten to ask for anything. Apparently they did discuss the reindeer in detail though. Whatever mall Santas get paid it isn't enough. This year has just seemed so crazy. I don't know if it was because Thanksgiving was right at the end of December or I just wasn't paying attention. Regardless, I'm spending Christmas day in my pajamas and doing nothing more challenging than deciding how many of the Doctor Who Christmas specials I want to re-watch.
