Weekly Recap – #1

Posted October 23, 2016 by Lily B in Recap / 21 Comments


I love fall I really do. I cannot believe that it is almost over as we are approaching winter rapidly. I am going to be reviewing a lot of winter/holiday/Christmas books this year and I am thankful to the publishers for sending a few of them for reviews.

As far as what is going on with me off the blog. It’s been busy, been spending a lot of time with family. Last weekend we went to a park (picture of location above) to take fall pictures, it’s the first fall in YEARS that we have this beautiful view of the colored leaves. Last year they all fell down before they even turned and there was even snow in parts of the state. My son had a lot of fun spending time with my husband and I, now that his seasonal job is slowly coming to a close for the year, he gets to spend a lot more time with us and it’s been a blast. It rained here for like 3 days in a row, Thursday, Friday and Saturday so it was awesome having him around.

This September marked our 5 year wedding anniversary and he wanted to get me a nice gift. I am currently looking to upgrade my camera, but no luck yet. Other than that, I was really enjoying Thriller books this month and I think I had a really good month with 11 books reviewed. I have a few that still need reviewing, but I wanted to do something different this afternoon.

  1. I love that weather in between seasons and the trees look gorgeous in autumn don’t they! So beautiful. Happy belated anniversary! A camera is a great present, capturing lots more happy fall memories in the years to come. Hope you have a wonderful week of reading Lily <3

  2. Where’s my comment?!

    Take 2: Your park and that photo is amazing! Fall is definitely my favorite season.

    Have a great week and I hope Diabolic is good, I have massive cover love for that one.

  3. Nice pic of the fall colors. We’re starting to get some nice color here too, it really got nice this week. I wanted to read a bunch of thrillers this month but didn’t really get to many… maybe I’ll have better luck reading holiday themed mysteries!

    I liked City of the Lost a lot too.

  4. Have a lovely anniversary and I enjoyed seeing your fall picture as that’s my favorite season, too.

    I look forward to getting your thoughts on the holiday reads you’re doing soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a good week, Lily!

  5. I wish the rain would stop here so we could really get out and enjoy some of the fall weather. Happy anniversary. Hope you had a lovely day. You did get some fun holiday books, I am ready for the change to some lighter, fluffier reading.

  6. Fall is actually one of my favourite seasons too, it’s a shame that we don’t get any pretty looking trees, like you do there ๐Ÿ™ Well done on the reviewing, I’ve become the laziest person ever lately, I usually want to dive into my next book instead of reviewing! And a camera upgrade sounds fantastic! I really want to get one for my birthday this year, so you must let me know what you get! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Love all that fall colours! And I like all the holiday reads you picked up! And Ever the Hunted looks amazing! Same with Scythe! The cover is awesome.
    I just finished reading and reviewing Promise of Fire and it was so amazing! Have a lovely week!

  8. Happy anniversary. I love the picture. I was in Canada for my vacation and they had some beautiful leaves. I’ve been way crazy and not visiting blogs as much as I would like. I’m hoping that I’m back to normal. Have a great week. ๐Ÿ™‚
