The Weekend Review - December 29-31st

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It's a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

If you'd like to participate with The Sunday Salon, it is now a Facebook group.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading is a meme with a new host!  It's now being hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. This is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between! This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!

I'm also linking to  Stacking The Shelves which is hosted by Team Tynga's Reviews.

Happy Weekend!  Happy New Year!

2018 is almost over and I managed to make my Goodreads goal and even go over by a couple of books.  I, also, finished another reading challenge, What An Animal.  It's one of the challenges I host each year and I didn't think I'd make it, but I did. 

I'm working on my "Best of 2018" list which I will post on Monday.  Now I'm looking forward to 2019 and all the new (and new-to-me) books I will be reading.

It's hard to believe the year is ending and a new one is beginning already.  I feel like this year just flew by.  We aren't going to be doing anything special this year for New Year's Eve.  Probably just stay home and welcome in 2019 with the kitties and hubby.  We'll probably be binging on Netflix.

I wish you all a very happy and healthy new year.  I hope 2019 is the best yet for everyone!
