I decided that I would do a weekly recap, and link up with The Sunday Post, which is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer, that was inspired in part by In My Mailbox. It’s a post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog. This week I went unofficially back to work. I attended meetings every day, and worked on my classroom during the afternoon. It was a long week, but I’m glad I did it. Now I don’t feel stressed about beginning the new year, even though I still have a few things to do before the kids return to school this coming Tuesday. Aside from work I mostly read some ARCs I wanted to get out-of-the-way, marathoned season 1 of Zoo, saw Suicide Squad, and waited for packages to arrive in the mail.
I finally decided to buy JLA’s Torn. I wasn’t the biggest fan of Wicked, but it was $3, so…🙄. I also downloaded Plague of the Dead from the library. I read it 5 years ago(?), but can’t remember what happened. At least not enough to read the 2nd and 3rd books I bought on Amazon Prime Day. For some reason I thought I owned this book, but I can’t find it on any of my devices. I guess I borrowed it the first time as well.
