TSS: Week in Review

December 15, 2013 The Sunday Salon 2

Whew! I don’t know about you but the holiday season is really catching up on me! While we finished Christmas shopping relatively early, getting prepared for family coming into town is a bit overwhelming!  Thankfully, the boys’ extracurricular schedules are calming down for the holiday so that helps tremendously!

My crazy busy schedule has me a little behind in my planned reading. That said, I did manage two really excellent books this week:

Also, I posted about a special giveaway to my readers: GoneReading Gift Certificate

Now that the year is coming to an end, I will be diligently working on my “best of” year end lists, which I traditionally post at the end of the year.  I’ve intentionally put off doing this so I can be certain to include titles I’ve read up to the end of the calendar year.

I always look forward to the calendar year because I generally allow myself a few “free” weeks, in which I don’t schedule review books and just read random books of my TBR shelf. I can’t tell you how excited I am to do this, yet  the obsessive planner in me gets kind of panicked when I don’t see anything on my review calendar for the rest of the month. I’m learning to let go…it’s a process!

So, stay tuned for my favorite books of the year, as well as reviews of books that may have come out earlier in the year (or in previous years)!

    December is always such a busy month. Usually around now I start to lose the groove I get going at the beginning of the month. I am hoping I can keep it together this year!

    I haven’t bought one gift for my husband, and have NO ideas for him. Worse yet, we don’t return home until Christmas Eve. I need to figure this out quick.

    You are so lucky to have your shopping done, I don’t have many to buy for but enjoy finding personal, small tokens my SIL/friends will enjoy.

    Have a lovely Christmas week!
