Sunday Post #I've Completely Lost Count

Song Of The Moment - Telescope by Cage The Elephant

The Sunday Post
Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted over at Caffeinated Book Reviewer

This is a meme where every Sunday you can share what's been going this week in your life and on your blog! It's also good for bragging about all your new lovely books!






Real Life
I've had a fairly eventful week... First I read a fairly good amount of books and managed to review quite a few books which is really good because I've been, and still am, so behind on reviews!

Thursday was the day I'd been waiting for....the Fall Out Boy concert... I won't bore you with details as I wrote a whole post about it but, basically, Fall Out Boy's drummer was stuck in Portland do to our high winds and snow and everything... =( What ended up happening is that Fall Out Boy played as, essentially, the opening act, playing only 8 songs acoustically. Then Cage The Elephant took over as Headliner and played the most...luckily they are awesome and even better live. Seriously probably one of the best bands I've seen live! So, they completely saved the show even though I'm still disappointed about Fall Out Boy.

Saturday was my mom's book club and she decided last month that she was going to drag me along, and I read the book, which was pretty good and everything. The problem? It was more of a drunken Christmas party than a book club... It was very entertaining, but the book was only discussed for like, five minutes!!!

What did I read? I started my Harry Potter re-read and finished books 1 and 2. I also finished The Innocent Assassins and started and finished Wanderlush, which was the book club book.

And then!

I signed up for The Broke and The Bookish Secret Santa and my present came in! Thanks again to Kelley from Oh The Books, who is seriously, just the best secret Santa! She got me something that went with basically everything I'd mentioned, including Christmas rubber spatulas for baking, pencils and notebooks for writing, and Minion dog tags because I'm obsessed! And ,of course, books! Attachments by Rainbow Rowell and Scarlet by A.C. Gaughan

  5. What a great Secret Santa surprise! I'm doing a Secret Santa exchange, too - it's lots of fun figuring out what to give! Have a lovely week and enjoy your new books and your HP reread! (Which reminds me that I abandoned my re-listen after three books - must get back to it one of these days.)

  6. Woha your Santa was really good this week! I love the gifts. Also sorry about the concert :( I wish they sang more songs. It's a shame when you go and see a bend and they disappoint you :( I hope you'll get a chance to see them again. Great post :)

  7. I think it's a constant thing, being behind on reviews. I've never been to a book club meeting, on tv they don't actually discuss the book either. I'm glad you had fun at the concert! An online secret santa is so cool!
