Weekly Round-Up: Reading and Life


IT'S CHRISTMAS TOMORROW AND SO ALL MY CAROL SINGING AROUND THE HOUSE HAS PAID OFF. I mean seriously, is it something in the air that makes me addicted to singing Christmas carols this time of year? I just can't seem to get them out of my head.

You've probably noticed that I revamped my blog. Again. Thanks to Di for helping with the html, and Uma for telling me how to turn my social media links into icons :)

Review: Minus Me
Character Christmas!


I read an AMAZING book this week: The Sealed Letter. At first I thought it was going to be a slow and boring read, but once I passed the first chapter, I became spellbound by its magnificence. 
My review will be up later next week. 




I was also very naughty and went to the library. Now I have a pile of books waiting for me, but I'm only going to be able to start them in January cause of life and time, etc etc.
*sigh*
I'm not good at waiting :(




How was your week? What have you read or watched? 
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas tomorrow!

  2. I'm looking at what I added to my tbr today and how big a job it will be next year to reduce it to something near manageable! I have a lot of reading to do! Thankfully I don't do anything over the holidays so it is just business as usual each day and I can get a head start! Enjoy the holidays!
