Weekly Wrap-Up

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

Life Beyond Books 

The last few weeks has been so slow for me in the reading front. I couldn't seem to READ let alone blog. I can't even tell you all why. I've been stuck on Netflix shows, finished The Vampire Diaries, that made me cry and at the same time extremely disappointed by the outcome, and then I've moved onto the new series of The Originals. Do you all have Netflix series you can recommend?

Apart from that, there wasn't really much events, I haven't done anything that's truly worthy of mention. 

My Aunty a few weeks ago now had a head-on collision, and seeing her car wreck, our family has been blessed she's alive. She's now home after 2 operations, broken ribs, no internal bleeding, but she's looking at physical therapy for a few months, before she can walk or drive again. We are just grateful she's alive. We don't yet know legally what will happen as the child who hit her was unlicensed but his Mother had stated he was picking her up from the Laundromat, which meant she had given consent, hence she's liable. There has been quite a few head-on collisions at Ramona lately, and my Aunty had known another who wasn't so lucky just in July.

Anyway, onto brighter news. My son does soccer training, they don't play actual refereed games as yet, but they do a little trial 10-15 mins before they finish, and despite a rough start to this school term, he is now actually playing and scored 3 tries/goals!!! I'm so if we can just stop touching/pushing other kids Momma will be very happy.

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!  Will also be linking up to Mailbox Monday. All books are linked to Goodreads, if you want to add to your shelf.

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

This week's Question?

Have you ever visited the location of a book you have read?

(Suggested by Elizabeth @ Silver's Reviews)

Unfortunately I can't think of any books that are based specifically here in Australia, I have travelled to some places mentioned in books.
