The Sunday Post #60 – Weekly Wrap-up

Welcome to my Sunday Post. Thank you toΒ Kimba over at The Caffeinated Reviewer, who is hosting this weekly event. It is the perfect opportunity to share what happened here on my own blog, as well as some of the happenings elsewhere in the Blogosphere. I’m sure there will be a lot of family anecdotes and maybe some nice turkey recipes in other bloggers’ Sunday post today – I hope all my US friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

This week was much quieter than last week, and I really needed that! I only taught on Monday, and had the rest of the week for Uni classes, my family and some good books. I am feeling ready for some time off soon, though, and I’m happy it’s only a little over three weeks until we leave for Norway for a few days to celebrate Christmas with my family!

I received my signed books order from Tiffany Reisz this week, and I’m so excited to have her full Original Sinners collection in paperback, signed, and decorating my shelves! Aren’t the covers for The Saint, The King, The Virgin and The Queen very cleverly done? I absolutely love that they make out one single picture when put together like that.

Remember thatΒ you that you can still sign up for the 2016 New Release Challenge! This challenge is all about reviewing books in 2016 that are released in 2016.

On Thursday evening, there was a book signing in Geneva, and I went with my oldest daughter. It was the Genevan author JoΓ«l Dicker who was the star of the evening, and we had a great time! One of his books, The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair has been translated to English! While we were standing in line, one of the employees in the store even came to serve us a glass of champagne πŸ˜€

  1. Thanksgiving was the first spent without my family. Baby and I spent it with the new man and his pooch, whom Baby adores. It was also the first holiday I spent entirely in my pajamas, making it perfect for sleeping in and the after-turkey nap. It was simple and quiet…and then the sore throat hit. While the man goes off policing the world at night, the dogs have been on nursemaid duty. Oh, and the night before Thanksgiving we went out to dinner and I almost stepped on one super pissed off copperhead coming out of the garage. There’s a photo in my Sunday Post.

  2. Oh, those Reisz covers are very clever! Someone had a good idea and was thinking ahead.

    Only 3 weeks until Christmas vacation, nice. I’m envious as my school is only closed for the holiday. I’m glad you enjoyed your quiet week, we all need those now and then.

    Have a good week!

    • I know, right? It looks amazing, and I’m kind of surprised that I didn’t realize this when I saw the covers individually πŸ™‚
      We are very lucky with the Christmas vacation this year, the kids (and I) are off from Wednesday, December 23rd in the afternoon, and school won’t start again until January 11th.
      Thanks for stopping by, Bea πŸ™‚

  3. Oh that is clever how that series makes one long picture! And so cool you have your Tiffany Reisz books all signed! I feel like signed books are extra special. xD
    And eeeeep!! Thank you for sharing my post! πŸ˜€

  4. Looks like a nice signing! I like those Reisz covers too, that’s clever how they did that. I like it when they design covers to match like that…

    Glad you got some family time, and have a vacation coming up.

  5. It’s nice to have a quieter week once in awhile. That’s great you got to order some signed books and those covers for The Saint, The King, The Virgin and The Queen are very cleverly done indeed! I like how they work individually as well and when cobmined they form one picture. I’ve seen something similiar with spines a few times, but not with front covers. And yay for you being able to attend a book signing! Have a great week!

  6. Ah! a nice quiet week, I love those kind of weeks. The next few weeks will be busy around here but I am actually looking forward to it πŸ™‚

    I have never read her books but I am loving the covers on the bottoms ones. That is so neat and very creative πŸ™‚

    I need to set up my sign up for 2016 New Release challenge πŸ™‚ I enjoyed it last year and I did keep track on Goodreads and I did pretty good!!!

    Have a great week, Lexxie! Happy Reading! ox

  7. Omg those book covers are beyond clever! I kind of wish I was creative enough to think of something like that haha.
    The new release challenge looks fun, I think I’ll have to sign up for it!
    Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving with your family. That’s awesome that you’re going to Norway for the Holidays πŸ™‚

  8. Glad you have a quieter week work-wise Lexxie and could focus more on your studies and reading etc. The author event looks great (and nice to see some pics of you!) I haven’t been to one for a little while now and find them really invigorating. I’m always passionate about reading but author events remind me how much goes into producing something that I sometimes take for granted!

  9. I want to go to a signing where champagne is served!!! πŸ˜‰ And such a lovely author to look at! πŸ˜‰ I’m glad your week was quieter and hopefully you have a relatively quiet week on tap for this week? We have some chatting to do! πŸ˜€ I’m happy we only have 3 weeks til Christmas break even if I’m going to be working 2 of them. Thanks, as always, for the shout out!
    Happy Monday, my friend! **BIG HUGS**

    • #1 and I certainly enjoyed that part of it. And yes, Mr. Dicker is definitely lovely to look at! And he was so friendly, too -#1 hardly knew how to talk to him πŸ˜€
      I think this week will be quite quiet… I do have two papers to write, but you know… chatting is important, too! :p
