The Sunday Post #25 - 8th November 2015

sunday post, book blog, blogger, weekly review

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted here by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

I'm gonna recap my week and give you an idea of what I have coming up plus anything else newsworthy!





Hey I hope you are all have a good week, have you all headaches from all those Halloween sweets?

In the UK we have had bonfire night on the 5th and last night a day late our street had a big bonfire.  It was extremely mesmerising and very warm plus there was mulled wine!

Also Christmas adverts have started on the tv, the big one here in Britain is the John Lewis (for non UK bloggers, it is a big department store), my fellow UK bloggers, did you cry or did you realise Christmas is not far away!


I have been having fun catching up on my sci-fi reads as part of Sci Fi month and planning my posts, which have involved looking at Captain Malcolm Reynolds from Firefly a lot.

Also as November is my birthday month I have decided to have a giveaway and I would love for you to enter - the winner will be announced on my birthday on the 29th!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Have a good week everyone and happy reading!

    Happy Birthday Month!!! I'm excited for upcoming holidays. I love Christmas time. I'm obsessed with buying gifts for people - seriously. I just love trying to find unique items they wouldn't otherwise know about or buy. It's fun!

  3. Your Bizzare Book last week was a snort laugh and a half! I loved the Sci-Fi month post. I will have to make sure I hit all of them. Have a wonderful birthday month. We have birthday week at my house, but I think all moms should have a birthday month. I am going to suggest it to my son next year. :)

  4. I love bonfires in the fall, especially on a cool night. And mulled wine... yum. Nice way to warm up when doing a holiday walk or whatever...

    The Christmas deluge will start now that we're in November. I don't mind too much, but then again it is a BIT early... :)

    Inside Out looks great, I kinda want to see that.

    1. It was my first mulled wine experience but it was nice, like Christmas in a mug!

      The Christmas adverts are everywhere, the catalogues are coming through the post, there is no escape!!!

  5. In the Netherlands we still have a children's holiday at the start of December so seeing Christmas things just feels so weird, haha. Christmas really starts here after that holiday so I haven't really seen a lot of Christmas adds here.

    Have a great week!

    1. That sounds so much better than the UK, everywhere I go is Christmas mocking me!!!

  6. I watch the TV show Castle and it's so weird seeing NF in that and then watching episodes of Firefly when he was so much younger. And then of course there's his role in Buffy....

    1. I haven't seen him in Buffy, I love him in Castle but to me he will always be Captain Tightpants!!

  7. Happy birthday and thank you for the giveaway! If I won, I think I'd buy the new Twilight book! I know it's not getting great reviews but I'd like to judge it for myself and the bit that I sneakily read in the bookshop, I liked!
    I saw that John Lewis advert yesterday *sniffles*

    1. It hasn't got very good reviews at all, I just wish she would come up with something new!!

  8. LOL your funny quote at the end is so true! But how in the world did Washington know abut Facebook way back then? *grins and laughs*
    Your bonfires sound great, Heather! And what a nice way to connect with neighbors, over mulled wine, in the dark and with a sparkling fire.
    Thanks for hosting a giveaway for your birthday! If I win, I have no idea what books I'd get, because it would depend of what books I buy between now and then :D
    Have a fantastic week ahead and happy reading.

    1. It was very jolly the bonfire, it was really mesmerising too!

      There are so many tempting books out there, I wouldn't have a clue where to start if I won a giftcard !!

  9. In our area, all we had on Bonfire night were idiots setting off fireworks all darn night and keeping me awake, along with the neighbour's dog howling in misery, the poor boy! It's a tradition that I hate! Hope you enjoy the books and stop tempting me with giveaways! Arrgghh! OK I snapped and entered!

    1. Sorry, I aim to tempt everyone!!! I can't help it!!!

      We hardly had any fireworks for a change, usually there are idiots setting them off for days after!

  10. Happy birthday! October and November are big birthday months in my family...my sister and eldest son have November.

  11. That bonfire sounds fun! Sounds like a fun way to spend the evening. And christmas sure feels close suddenly! I don't watch any tv, so I haven't seen any christmas advert, but I did see some christmas products pop up in stores and realized how close it is suddenly.
    I hope you're having fun with sci-fi month! I just started a sci-fi read coincidently, a companion novel to SJ Pajoans her nogiku series that tell the story from Jiro and Mark their point of view, it's awesome so far!
    Inside Out looks fun! I had to laugh about that quote, lol. I hope you'll have a great week!

    1. I really need to get in to SJ's books, they do look like such great reads!!

    1. John Lewis always do a good advert, it cost millions apparently!! The Ivy books are great, but I am the same have lots of books I want to read but, well you know, not enough hours!!

  15. That commercial was so touching! I love the holidays. I am a bit stressed that for the second year in a row we are moving in December, but with it comes excitement that things are going to get better.
    I would totally buy MORE books. I am so predictable. Have a great week!

    1. It brought a tear to my eye!!

      I love Christmas too, but moving sounds really stressful but it will be fun I am sure!

  16. Love the funny! Oh so true. I'm always seeing stuff by Marilyn Monroe that there's no way she actually said. I'm not quite ready to think Christmas yet though I'm enjoying the Christmas stories. Looking forward to seeing what you read for SciFi month! I don't read much in that genre so I like seeing the recommendations. Have a great week!

  17. Aww that John Lewis commercial was so sweet, made me all teary. Bonfires and mulled wine, now that sounds great, we make mulled wine on the campfire when we camp in winter. I was Dead for 13 Minutes ... cool title, I'm curious. Happy birthday month and and thank you for the giveaway YAY lol

  18. Ooh, mulled wine. Mmm! I haven't read any of your books, but the 13 Minutes one definitely caught my eye. Interesting cover. I hope you enjoy your birthday month!
