The Sunday Post/It's Monday, What Are You Reading?

Hi, everyone!

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, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. It's Monday, What Are You Reading is a fun weekly meme hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date where we share what we've read and reviewed over the past week and what we plan to read next. 

Another calm week here! 
It's finally cooled down to the 40s and 50s over the past few days, and it's epic. Gorgeously chilly days, brisk (okay, downright nipply) nights, windows open, a fire going, the whole shebang. 

A few random decorations photos....

This tree has the most random assortment of stuff on it,  and some of it isn't even ornaments. 

Little Miss Always Photoboming Nola. 

Chalkboard wall. This was a little bit ago, so the Christmas countdown isn't right. :p

These were made by wrapping a balloon in twine, soaking it in liquid laundry starch,  letting them dry, then carefully popping and pulling the balloon loose from the twine. They turned out pretty damn cool for a first attempt, if I do say so myself. 

This week's steps are okay for the most part. Not as good as past weeks, but I did manage to get 5 or more miles each day. Steps this week:

Sunday - 10,068
Monday - 14,351
Tuesday - 17,604
Wednesday - 12,321
Thursday - 10,528
Friday - 11,873
Saturday - 10,266

Total - 87,011

Read This Week
5 Stars! It was so fantastic to revisit my favorite PNR/UF couple, and get some blanks filled in. 
3.5 Stars! This one was enjoyable enough, and a quick read/listen. I don't know if I liked this one or Dirty Rowdy Thing better, but Sweet Filthy Boy will always be my 5 star favorite. Speaking of, there's a teeny tiny Mia/Ansel scene in this one that I just adored.

4 Stars! A solid 4 star read for me. I loved Roxie, and the book made me want to move to a picturesque NY town. It's definitely not my favorite Clayton book, and I think it may have been my lowest rated AClayton book, which tells you something!

Currently Reading

Audiobook. Only a few chapters in, but liking it so far!
One of my guiltiest pleasure reads is the Stage Dive series. 

What Will I Read Next?
