Sunday Post

Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted here @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. See rules here: Sunday Post Meme

The #HoHoHoRat began Wednesday, and it couldn’t have occurred at a better time. The baby Momma is sick, and it is making her miserable. She is now more than 80% effaced, and 4 centimeters dilated. We expect the prince to arrive on or before the 21st of November. This month is moving quickly, and I still need to buy my bird! Hopefully, I get the shopping done this week. Thanks to Marlene @ Reading Reality we are hosting the Black Friday Book Bonanza Giveaway Hop. I hope you will join us!  Spend your week being kind to others, showing tolerance to those that are different and strive to make a difference in everything you do. Stay Caffeinated!

    Oh, exciting news about the prince’s arrival!!!!

    And I love that meme as I’m sitting here in a bedtime singlet and little cycle pant / shorts things because summer has well and truly hit here in Australia (along with our first storms) and I’m dressing for comfort rather than company!

    Oh I feel sorry for the momma! Being that pregnant and sick sounds like the absolute worst! Hope she’s feeling better with time to spare before the 21st! You got some great books this week. Sabrina Jeffries is one of my favorites and I loved the one Lauren Griffin I’ve read and have been meaning to read more. Have a great week!

    Looks like an exciting week ahead of you. I haven’t even started to do any shopping yet. The blonde is strong today I totally read bird and instantly thought oh she’s getting a pet bird. I don’t think I’m doing a bird this year just desserts. Baby waiting is always exciting but the waiting is the worst. I hope for a quick delivery. Looks like you’ve had a great week. I hope you have an amazing new week. Happy reading.

    Oh, very exciting times, with the new baby coming very soon. Hope all goes well!

    Enjoy those books; I see several that look very tempting, like the new Laura Griffin book. Thanks for sharing.

    Cool Tracers shirt! And good luck to mom-to-be, I’m sure she’s ready by this point! Sounds like the little guy will be here in time for Thanksgiving. Hope your HoHoHo reading is going well…

    Ahh! The Prince will be here soon! I’m sorry that the momma isn’t feeling great and I hope she’s better soon.

    Lots of happenings this week! I hope it is a good one for you and that you manage to have a successful one!

    The Ho Ho Ho Read-a-thon did come at the perfect time. It has been nice to block out some of the world just bits, to concentrate on reading books that hold hope, and spring peace.
    It sounds like that baby will be coming soon! Yay. I hope mama feels better.

    Good luck with the readathon! And I hope your baby’s daughter will there soon. I am currently reading sweet Little Lies by Jill Shalvis, will have to stop by your review of Trouble with Mistletoe. Have a great week!

    I hope the Baby Momma feels better soon. I remember being pregnant feeling sick and just wanting the whole thing over with, so I could hold my little one. You have some great looking books up there too. Especially the Karen Rose books. Thanks for sharing.

    Good luck with your Thanksgiving prep. My family’s Thanksgiving is today.
    .
    I hope your daughter will feel better soon. Sounds like it won’t be long before the baby arrives.

    I will be checking out your review for the new Jill Shalvis book. I want to read that one but I’m not sure I’ll get to it for the readathon. I’m still on my first book!

    Fingers crossed for a safe and event-free delivery of the Prince. I really enjoyed your review of Heartless, which I’m yearning to get hold of – but there are other books in the queue first. And Christmas is ALSO looming which means I need to haul my book-buying habits to a halt! I appreciate your call for kindness – I’m hoping my countrymen and women will also recall we will achieve nothing worth having if we just retreat behind a wall and pull up the drawbridge behind us… Have a great week, Kimber.

    I’m sorry your daughter is feeling sick. Hopefully the little Prince arrives soon and she will start feeling better! I love your message about being kind and tolerant. There’s been so much anger and divisiveness in the last week (or year) — we really need more kindness.

    Did you enjoy One Snowy Night? I finished it yesterday and hope to get my post up Monday, if I can finish up the review after rehearsals this afternoon.

    Have a great week!

    Yay! I’m excited to see Prince Clayton 🙂 I hope all goes well and momma gets to feeling much better! I agree the readathon came at the perfect time. I regret that I couldn’t shut down enough to fully enjoy it until yesterday, but trying to each night helped me get to sleep at the least. Here’s to a much better week next week!

    Oooh, we are getting so close to meeting your new family member! I hope momma is feeling better soon. I forgot all about the read-a-thon, but you can count me in!
    I will be working (again) on Thanksgiving, so we are looking into getting a pre-made meal. My daughter is none too thrilled about being responsible for the dinner, and I agree it should not fall all on her.
    That is a really nice surprise from xoxpert! I hope you enjoy all your new reads!

    I hope that little prince comes soon, it will be so nice to spend Thanksgiving with him.
    I need to be prep for christmas. I don’t really do any cooking on Turkey Day, my mom and her sisters do that so I’ll bring something small but Christmas is my think and I need to start planning. It will be here before we know it.

    Looking forward to the Black Friday Hop…I will be doing it again this year.
    Have a great week, Kim! Happy Reading! oxox

    Oh Em Gee! Prince Clayton is going to be here before you know it! I’m so excited! And he’s not even my grandbaby. LOL I haven’t grabbed my bird or anything else either. I need to do that this week. It boggles my mind that Thanksgiving is only next week! GAH! I hope baby momma gets better quickly and that you guys have a fantastic week!

    Poor baby momma! That has to be tough! the 21st must feel like a lifetime away for her!!
    Great book haul! I am excited for the next Tracers book!
    Have a great week!

    I hope your daughter feels better soon and has a safe delivery. I can’t believe how fast November has passed. I love our Xoxpert package this month too. Is At Close Range a standalone? This book sounds really good but I haven’t read the previous books. I hope you have a great week!

  20. Rita

    Sorry your daughter is having a rough time of it now. I hope the Prince makes his arrival sooner rather than later for everyone’s sake!

    Yes, we need to show kindness, be compassionate and empathetic to those around us. Wish everyone would practice this behavior!

    I love Laura Griffin and am excited for you that you received that gift package. Once I won a paperback from her and she sent me a handwritten note with it– she’s a good person, besides a good author. Hope this week is exciting for you!

    Kindness is definitely something we should all be showing each other more of right now and truly always, we are all on the same team as Americans regardless of our background, race, sex, or beliefs!

    Good luck to your daughter, any day now! Those last few weeks are so miserable and yet exciting too.

    Poor Baby Momma. Good luck to her and to all of you. November is already speeding by. Have a great week!

  23. Kristin

    I’m so sorry Baby Momma is sick!!! Hopefully it’s “just a cold” (as if there is such a thing when you’re pregnant) and sleep can fix it. Just think, this time next week, you might be a Grandma again!!! Wow!!

    Awesome book haul this week – I love the t-shirt you got. It’s actually wearable in public 😉 Hang in there, Nona!!!

  24. Tressa

    I remember those pre-delivery numbers and feeling so uncomfortable. Being sick on top of that is no fun at all! I hope it all goes well!! I need to check out some of your reviews and your giveaway hop. It’s been so busy for me that I haven’t gotten a single holiday read in for the RAT, so I’m hoping this week that will change before it’s over. Have a great week!

  25. Tyler H. Jolley

    I remember those days with my wife. The last few days before the birth are the longest days ever, but so worth the wait. So happy for your entire family. Happy reading this week and sending good vibes to your daughter.

    I am sorry your daugther is sick. We have been sick here at my house for two weeks and we can’t shake the nasty cough. I know it is so much worse when you are pregnant. Hopefully he gets here soon healthy and safe. We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of my new nephew the first week of December, it will be a gift even though we are so sad that he won’t know his grandma. Hugs to you.

    I’ll keep my fingers crossed for an easy delivery for the Prince! 🙂
    I have to do my Thanksgiving shopping done as well – I keep thinking there’s a whole other week that I *don’t* have. 😉
    Woohoo for Sabrina Jeffries and Lauren Layne! But all your books look good. Happy Reading, Kim! 😀
