#SundayRoundup of #Books #Week #27!!


Welcome to the #SundayRoundup #27





On the homefront:
Had a lovely weekend last week with family here. I enjoy my Aunts so much. They are the last of my mom's generation. I look around and realize I don't have much of that family left. It's a darn shame as I feel I am not that old to be seeing this already. But, it is what it is. We all will get to that point. I try to tell my daughters this and prepare them for what is to come. It's hard for them to imagine life without Mom and Dad but that day will come. Anyway, we enjoy our family and the more I do it (have them here) the more I want them to stay forever. 

Things I know:
Time flies, and it doesn't matter if you have fun or not. So always try to have fun. You will blink your eyes and 10 years will have gone by.  

School Front:
I had no tests this week. WOOOHOOOO and all my grades are at A's. I handed in 2 of my 3 reports early!! YAY, me! One more to go. 

Blog:
I did get a review up this week. Please check it out and comment! I will return the love - I promise! =) 

Hope your July is going good and you are having fun in the sun! Leave your link so I can check out all your new books!

    1. Yes, I hope so. Like I said I am trying my best to stay at those A's!

  2. I had to giggle when I saw the Hall and Oats video, because I have been singing their songs non-stop since I started If I Fix You. The dad in the book plays Hall and Oats all the time, and the songs would not stop playing in my head.

  4. Congrats on your grades!

    When you mentioned your aunts, I felt a little pang...I have no more aunts, parents, anybody in that previous generation. Which means...I'm one of the seniors. How is that possible?

    Enjoy your books and your week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

    1. I have two left. All of my husbands is gone (he is older than me), and we are now faced with the same thing. Time flies!

  5. Hall and Oates! Yes!! I am really lucky to still have both my parents and even 1 grandparent left. My mom has 4 siblings who are still with us, plus all their kids (my cousins) and now all my cousins' kids! My dad has 2 siblings who are still with us, plus their kids. So, I'm super lucky to still have family but I know it won't last forever. I'm 38, my mom is 70, and my grandpa is 92!

  9. I'm always sad when I think of how time is flying. My family is a small one now and I still can't believe my father has been gone for three years already. You have to enjoy the time you have.

    Congrats on your grades! That's wonderful!

    I hope you have a great week!

  11. Congrats on your grades and the session ending! I think many of the families are dying out. My grandma was the youngest of 13 children and they are all gone. She had 4 kids. My Mom had 2. One of her sisters had 6 I think and they still are on the farm Similar on my dad's side, less kids each generation. Enjoy your summer reads! Anne - Books of My Heart

  13. It is sad when the older generations start shrinking. I grew up surrounded by a large extended family but it seems so much smaller now. Congrats on the book wins! Have a great week!

  15. I like the look of Leaning on Water. Lots of great looking books. Great job on your grades!!! My son had one class this summer and got a B which we were happy about. It was a math class and he hates math lol. Have a great week.

  16. It sounds like you had a good week! I'm definitely to the point where I try to enjoy my family (the ones I like, anyway) as much as I can because I know they won't last forever. Mute looks really good and Awakened is one I've had my eye on! Have a great week :D

  17. I don’t have much family left, either. I’m not that old, so it seems weird that most of the family members I grew up with are dead. Good job with your grades. I hope you enjoy your new books. Have a good week!
