The Weekly Recap: Happy New Year!...Hopefully? (Week of 12/25/16)

Happy Sunday! I'm linking up to The Sunday Post, hosted by The Caffienated Book Reviewer; Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews; and Book Photo Sundays, hosted by Rabbit Ears Book Blog.

-MY LIFE-
It's been awhile guys! How is everyone? How were your holidays? I had a lovely vacation, and I got some books too! I'm back into my reading mood, and read 11 books this moth. You can expect a ton of reviews and a end of 2016 post in January. Oh, and I've been getting really into Madam Secretary! I'm currently binge watching the first season on Netflix, and I'm really liking it! I'm back home, and I still have Christmas gifts under my artificial tree. That's right, Christmas has not happened yet. Oops? Maybe I'll open them this week. Until then everybody, have a good week, happy reading, and happy new year!

    1. I've heard that people either loved or hated The Thousandth Floor, but it's just so pretty that I couldn't resist. :)

  3. Lovely photos! I'm thinking my first read for the year will be Alice by Christina Henry, but it might be a children's book instead, so we'll see!

  4. I love those photos...especially the one where you are holding the book out next to the gate.

    I love Madame Secretary, too, from all the political stuff to their family moments, although that son of theirs is super-annoying. LOL.
