My Weekly Wrap Up is my version of The Sunday Post hosted by Kim at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This weekly meme is a chance to share news about your blog, books and life. It is also a perfect opportunity to meet bloggers and add more books to your collection.
Hi everyone and Happy New Year!!
It’s hard to believe it is 2017. I scheduled a review for Monday and I almost forgot to change the date to 2017 lol. I hope you all had a nice holiday. Our Christmas didn’t go as planned again this year since my mom was sick. She was hospitalized for pneumonia but was discharged on 12/24. I didn’t get to visit her because I was sick but we are having lunch with her today (so I’ll be visiting blogs later today). This last week of 2016 was horrible. I was sick but worked 2 days because I had a report due. I went to the doctor on Wednesday and was given 4 prescriptions, one of them is an inhaler because I was wheezing. It has been a long time since I have been this sick and I think a lot of it has to do with the stress at work. I called in sick on Thursday and was already off on Friday. I’m feeling better but I still need the inhaler. With the tragic deaths of George Michael, Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds plus family drama I couldn’t wait for this last week to end. At Comic Con 2015 we stayed in line for about 13 hours to get in the room for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It was worth the wait since I was able to be in the same room with Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford. Star Wars was an important part of my childhood and it is so sad to hear of Carrie Fisher passing away and to have the double tragedy with losing Debbie Reynolds. My heart goes out to all the families who lost love ones over this holiday.
I had little energy last week so I didn’t promote my Top 10 of 2016 giveaway like I normally do (it’s still open if you would like to enter). I hope and pray that 2017 is going to be a good year for all of us!!!
I’ll have my first post next Saturday for the My TBR List meme hosted by Michelle @ Because Reading. I hope you will stop by and vote which book I should read for this month.
Currently reading or listening to:
Everywhere and Every Way by Jennifer Probst
I’ll be starting the audiobook United by Melissa Landers next week
Here is what happened since my last Weekly Wrap Up:
Reviews coming soon:
It’s You (Book 1) by Katy Regnery
I haven’t watched anything.
At the movies:
Even though I’ve been sick we watched Rogue One last Friday. I loved it! I read Star Wars: Catalyst which was being plugged as a must read before you watch Rogue One and it wasn’t necessary. But I did enjoy seeing Orson Krennic what he deserved lol. And the ending was emotional (I don’t want to spoil it if you haven’t watched it yet)!
I hope you have a great week and new year!!
