Sunday Review – 11/29/2015

Hey everyone! Hope you’re all having a wonderful lazy Sunday. This post is going to be pretty short and sweet, since my family and I had our Thanksgiving dinner today. I’m stuffed and ready to let the food coma consume me.

So much happened in the last few days. I ran into everyone and their brother, (quite literally – I ran into a girl who was 2 grades under me in high school and then ran into her brother, who was in my grade, a bit later.) It was crazy. I saw so many old friends from high school and college this weekend, and it was so nice to catch up with everyone.

I also saw Mockingjay Part 2 last night, and thought they did a really good job with it. The movie stuck really close to the book – from what I can remember. (I haven’t read them since Mockingjay first came out.) I highly recommend you see it if you haven’t already.

Well, this is turning out not to be so short and sweet, but moving on to the catch up and the books that I’ve started and finished this last week.

Also, if anyone is interested, the author Daniel Canfield is hosting a giveaway for his book Back to Christmas on Goodreads. I won a free copy and thought it was a cute little book. To enter, click here.

One last thing (I swear). Wish me luck tonight! It’s the mid-season finale of The Walking Dead, and I have no idea how I’m ever going to survive!

That’s all for me today. Couch and binge watching Doctor Who here I come.

Stick around, the week is only beginning!
