My Weekly Wrap Up is my version of The Sunday Post hosted by Kim at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a great holiday. Normally we go out to dinner but this year we had take out for our favorite Chinese restaurant and stayed home. Everyone was happy with these plans. My husband and daughters played their new video game Star Wars Battlefront and I finished my last book for 2015 to reach my Goodreads goal of 100 books. For New Year’s Eve I get the house ready to bring in a successful year. Filipinos have a lot of superstitions for New Year’s but I only do a couple: clean the house, put coins at the windows and doors, and put 12 round fruit on the table. The 12 fruit are for each month of the coming year and anything round signifies prosperity. This is my first year doing the fruit and when I went to the grocery I had a hard time finding fruit. I didn’t want to waste money and food on something we wouldn’t eat (like a coconut) so I cheated a little with blackberries (which are a cluster of round tiny fruits).
If you are on Instagram you may have seen everyone’s #2015BestNine (created by 2015bestnine.com). The website selects users top 9 posts based on the number of likes. Here is mine:
After seeing my best nine I realized it was missing a lot of my favorite photos so I created my Favorite Author Memories of 2015 (Katy Regnery, TK Leigh, Jennifer Armentrout, Jenny Han, Marie Lu, Sabaa Tahir, James Dashner, Suzanne Young and Rae Carson) and Favorite Fangirl Memories of 2015 (Ian Somerhalder, CW Arrow, CW Legends of Tomorrow, CW The Flash, Outlander, Star Wars).
Last weekend we finally watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens and we loved it. My daughter Tyler is now a fan of the movies and is always surfing the web for new Star Wars information. She found this clip of all the stars singing the anthem and it is really good.
