This Week in Reading - November 3

It's Sunday Post time!  This is hosted by the awesome Caffeinated Book Reviewer and gives us all a chance to recap our week.

What I Got:

Nothing!  My Incoming Book Shelf is empty!  


Reading:  The Chocolate Shark Shenanigans by JoAnna Carl and The Angels' Share by Ellen Crosby

Listening:  I See You by Clare Mackintosh.  This one is taking awhile but that's not a reflection of the book itself.  

Watching:  I've started watching some of the Hallmark Christmas movies from the last few years and have been really enjoying them.  They're very soothing.

Off the Blog:

How is it November?  This year has been flying by and I don't feel like I've had a moment to breathe in the last few months.  I'm hoping November will be calmer and quieter.    Halloween was a lot of fun.  We ended up trick or treating and the Tornado has more candy then any one child should have.  I've been pilfering pieces of my favorites here and there so it's working out!  He's been taking an online class about renewable and nonrenewable resources that's taught using Minecraft and he's loving it.  I was worried it'd be kind of a joke but it's intense!  He's really liking it and learning a pretty good bit.

Have a great week and happy reading!


  1. Wow that class sounds pretty awesome. And using Minecraft to teach about resources seems like a stroke of genius. Glad you had a good Halloween too. Ours was cold and rainy/ snowy! You never know what you're going to get in Michigan haha!

    The Chocolate Shark shenanigans looks cute. :)

  2. The Minecraft learning sounds great. And so you should be pilfering some of the candy! Good to see nothing incoming - gives you a breather.

  3. The class sounds super fun and innovative. I am glad your Halloween was good. I hope you have a great week ahead.

  4. OK I'm intrigued by the Chocolate Shark Shenanigans! What a great title!

  5. Good job on not getting anything! Sounds like a very cool way to learn things with that class!

    Have a great week and happy reading!

  6. That's the beauty of Halloween! Us adults get to eat the treats too LOL

  7. My 10yo would LOVE a class using Minecraft to teach principles. Sounds fun, even if it is intense!

  8. You're having a lovely week. We have waaaay too much candy and I'm eating it. Bad. I also got lots of books this week, which isn't all bad. Have a wonderful week!

  9. What a great idea - use games like Minecraft as a teaching aid:)). I'm glad you had a good Halloween - I'm afraid we didn't put out any decorations or have any knocks on the door, as a result I've no sweets and as I've decided to make November a No-sweet or pudding month, I'm very glad:)). Have a great week, Katherine.

  10. Minecraft is fun. :)
    We were cleaned out of candy this year by the trick or treaters but my son came home with a bucket full and is more than happy sharing so I've been helping him get through it!

    I hope you have a calmer November!

  11. Minecraft learning? Very cool...

  12. I love it when they take things kids enjoy and turn it into a learning tool. This year really has sped by. I can't believe that we are in November. I hope you have a great week!

  13. Glad that the Tornado had a wonderful Halloween! I also felt that this year went by too fast.

    Here’s my Sunday Post!

  14. I liked I See You. Hope you enjoy all of your books, and your upcoming week.

  15. I'd gotten a book from LibraryThing but otherwise I have behaved in regard to book purchases. Yes, i know what you mean - it's November already! Yikes.
    We went camping for Halloween. Cold nights and big fires.

  16. I am glad Tornado had a good Halloween and is enjoying his online class. It sounds like everything is falling together for him, and I am glad to hear it. You definitely deserve a quiet and calm November, and rest of the year for that matter. I hope you get it! Take care, Katherine!

  17. We had all sorts of educational games for Baz when he was younger. I think concepts really stick with them when they are also physically involved. 🎮

    I hope you had a great week! 👍✨
