#Sunday #Roundup of #Books #Week #51!!

Welcome to the #SundayRoundup #51!!
Happy Sunday!

Happy New Year!! 

On the homefront:
All is well! I took Christmas Eve and Christmas Day off. I unplugged and it felt good. I read almost a full book in the days time! It was We Sold Our Souls and started a new one! Everyone had a good Christmas and came to my house this year. Most years it is that way. But a few years were snap foos and we didn't get together. I made prime rib and my brother made stuffed shells. We have a few people that don't eat red meat. But overall it was a great day!

Things I know:
Nothing says Christmas like making cookies! 
I made 6 different kinds this year!

School Front:
On Semester Break! I go back January 2nd.

How has your week been?


  1. I've stayed busy blogging through the festive period and I'm pleased to have got a handful of book reviews done! It proves I can do it when I put my mind to it! I've been watching darts and cricket, Top Chef Canada and getting a decent bit of reading done so I can't complain!

    1. Awesome, I really need to start working on my reviews. It should really be a resolution of mine getting more reviews done and up on the blog. I am lazy as I love to read but don't write the reviews I need to.

  2. I should try unplugging. I bet I could get a ton of reading done. I’m glad you had a good Christmas and got some books. Have a great week!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  3. Your books look tempting! Cookie baking sounds tempting, too, and it's been years since I baked.

    Enjoy the New Year, and I'm glad you had a good Christmas. Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  4. Nice book haul. I hope you love them all and enjoy your little break before the new semester begins.

  5. Prime Rib and Stuffed Shells sounds so yummy! I love baking, I do it with my mom during Christmas we make a ton of cookies.

    I hope you have the best week ever, Mary! Happy New Year!

  6. I'm glad you had a wonderful Christmas! Enjoy your break and your new books!

  7. Yay you met your challenge goal and got lots of nice books for Christmas, as well as family time AND reading time. My daughter doesn't eat red meat(or gluten) so I do lots of turkey, chicken, fish and vegetarian dishes.

    I saw you go back to school the 3rd. She starts the 4th, but we are going to go get her books on the 2nd. Have a Happy New Year! Anne - Books of My Heart
