Week in Review: December 20

missprintweekreviewThis week on the blog you can check out:

This week was a fun blend of posts I knew were coming (unpopular opinions tag, anyone?), posts I barely remember scheduling (everything else), and my best of 2015 list. I call it a “top ten” but I actually have a top fifteen. Plus four honorable mentions. They are, for me, the best of the best. What were your bookish favorites this year?

This week I’m buddy reading Froi of the Exiles with Sajda. I don’t do a lot of buddy reading usually but it has been a lot of fun having someone to OMG with and discuss the book with while reading. I’ve actually been lucky to do a lot of group readings because I was also working through Mock Printz titles and discussing with several coworkers as I read. Also super relieved this 600 page monster is proving to be a fairly fast read. I’d been worried!

I’ve also been trying to declutter my social media by unfollowing blogs that aren’t active or relevant to my interests and generally streamlining so I’m following people I know and talk to and can better keep track of without getting overwhelmed.

I forgot to share this last week so here is a belated picture of the centerpiece from my cookie swap–the gingerbread house that my mom and I put together:


This week marks the start of my staycation for the holidays. In fact, as you read this I’ll be getting ready to exchange Christmas gifts with Nicole. I’m pretty excited!

How was your week?

  1. THAT GINGERBREAD HOUSE! I am impressed, to say the least. I tried to do one once, but it looked like a house after it had been mauled by a tornado or something ;) Also, decluttering social media is such a good idea. I wish I could bring myself to do it! I feel so BAD about unfollowing but… that is also why I am always not caught up on stuff! Maybe I’ll work on it ;) Hope you had fun exchanging gifts with Nicole!! :D

    1. Thanks Shannon! I just try to remember I’m using social media for specific purposes and if friendships don’t become immediately obvious through some kind of rapport then I don’t need to force it.
