The Sunday Post #13 – Weekly Wrap-up

Welcome to my weekly wrap-up post. I am signing up with Kimba over at The Caffeinated Reviewer, who is hosting this weekly event.

For New Year, we celebrated with some close friends, and ended up being six adults and eight children for the evening and night. We shared some good food, good drinks, great memories and had a really good time. I hope your new year was a good one, too, and that 2015 will be a fantastic year all around.

So far, I’ve read 13 books for COYER, but I haven’t posted reviews for all of them. If you’re interested, you can check out my COYER challenge books, and my Goodreads shelf of COYER books read, too.

    • Oh well, if we hadn’t had guests, I would have never made it until midnight either, Christy. I was so tired by the time they left ๐Ÿ™‚
      Sorry your kids have been sick, I hope everyone is feeling all better now!

    • I’m pretty sure 2015 will be a fantastic year, Brandee – I get to meet YOU in May, so there’s no way the year isn’t going to be amazing ๐Ÿ™‚
      *BIG HUGS*

    • We had a wonderful time ringing in the New Year, Greg. I thought it was a nice gesture towards my fellow bloggers who take the time out of their busy lives to come and comment here so often ๐Ÿ™‚ And at the same time, I made them all read one of my favorite indie-authors ๐Ÿ™‚
      Happy New Year, and thanks for stopping by.

  1. We had a quiet new years eve, which was nice, I was even being able to get some reading done. Although I did have a headache so I went to sleep as soon as the worst of the fireworks was over.

    I only read one book for Coyer, so I am really impressed you already got 13 books read!

    • I’ve read a lot of short-stories and novellas, Lola. I have been digging into my kindle freebies for COYER ๐Ÿ™‚
      I hope your headache is but a memory now, and that you’re feeling great once more ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Oh, COYER is really great for me, Laurel-Rain! I am so grabby when it comes to free or cheap books, and then they just sit there. I’m sure Sparky would be happy if you made things easier by reading some of those e-books ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Yeah, we really had a great evening / night, and it was such a good way to start the new year ๐Ÿ™‚

      Be careful with the freebies I got – you want to actually clean out your e-reader, right, not fill it up :p

      Have a great week, Michelle.

  2. We didn’t do anything for New Years, I just read a book..lol. I really have no life..lol. You are rocking those COYER books, I have read like 5 but that is really pretty good for me as I am a slow reader. ๐Ÿ™ I knocked two out for the New Years Read-a-thon as I got smart and read a short story for one..hehe. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a great week!

    • Several of my COYER books are short-stories or novellas, so they’re not full-length books, Stormi.

      Nice and quiet for New Years sounds good, too, and reading is ALWAYS a good idea ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I created a shelf on Goodreads, and I also have a selection on my kindle… I have to know all the time how I’m doing with challenges ๐Ÿ˜€
      Happy New Year to you, too, Kim.

    • Yeah, we had a really good time, Melanie ๐Ÿ™‚ I am sometimes a late-night person, and other times not at all.
      Have a great evening ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. YAY! We did the same thing. We had a group of adults and kids all together to bring in the New Year. We had some fireworks and food. It was a lot of fun. So glad you enjoyed your celebration!! I hope the New Year has great things in store for you ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Having friends over both for the adults and for the kids is the best way to celebrate ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m glad you had such a nice time, too, Jaclyn.
      I hope 2015 will be an amazing year ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Yeah, but don’t let the short-stories fool you, Berls ๐Ÿ™‚ Some of them have been good, others not so much, and I just did my first DNF for 2015.
      Have a wonderful Wednesday ๐Ÿ™‚
