Weekly Recap: 11/3 - 11/8

My Super Exciting Life 

Thus ends another insanely stressful week. I will be so happy when this semester finally ends so I can finally breathe for five minutes. College students in your teens and early twenties without husbands, bills, and responsibilities: enjoy it! Seriously.

My reading time prior to Wednesday night was completely taken over by a book I had to read for school about the Sand Creek Massacre. It wasn't quite as boring as some other school reads, but non-fiction is always so much harder to get through! I had to help lead a class discussion Wednesday night pertaining to the book, but the author was there via Skype and actually took over most of the evening, which did make my life easier.

Thursday night my husband and I decided it was the Christmas season. We curled up on the couch with hot chocolate and puppies and watched Winnie the Pooh and Christmas Too! You know? The one from 1991? That is definitely on my list of top five Christmas movies! Thursday also started the Ho Ho Ho Read-a-Thon! Yay!

This weekend has been a blur of brownies, ice cream, tacos, and baby showers. My cousin is having her very first baby girl next month (well, if she holds out that long). So I made the two hour drive to her mom's house for silly shower games, junk food, and presents. Story time. When my cousin and I were kids, we didn't play house like normal people. We played The Lion King. She always forced me to be Simba so she could be Nala. I bought her this:


So there you have it! My super exciting week.

New Books Finds

This week I found a ton of new books while I was searching for #HoHoHoRAT reads! I got a few for my Kindle, one from Netgalley, and one from Audible. I learned about the Krampus! I'd never even heard of that myth! Most of the books I found this week are down a little further because I've already read them! Here are the ones I haven't gotten to yet:


I also found a new post-apocalyptic book I've never heard of, but looks amazing! 

And I got a new book to read from Netgalley!
