Weekly Rewind ~ 12.6.15

Posted December 6, 2015 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Features, Weekly Rewind / 43 Comments

Weekly Rewind is a weekly feature where I will recap posts, books read, books bought and borrowed and whatever else from the past week. I’ve linked to The Sunday Post hosted by  Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves hosted by  Team Tynga’s Reviews.
BUSY week. Some family stuff early on. Then we went to see Santa. No one cried!!! WINNING. Then we got our tree and will be decorating the house today. Oh Oh and my TBTBSanta pick got the package I sent and said she loved it all. Made me so happy. Now I am stalking the mail for mine. I love Christmas time so much 🙂

  1. Seeing Santa without tears?! Major win. I’ve heard enough horror stories from my friends with kids to know this is rare. Haha. The Opportunist! Oh how I loved that book and that series. I hope you’ll enjoy it and decide to read the rest of the series. The Sea of Tranquility! I’m overdue for a reread. It’s one of my all-time favorite books. I’m glad to see you enjoyed it, too.

    Have a fantastic week!

  2. You got some great books this week! I am so excited you are reading the Throne of Glass series! I didn’t sign up for any secret santa stuff because I wasn’t sure I could afford it. Now I am sad about it. There are a few bloggers I would love to treat, but no wishlists posted for them…so that sucks. I hope you get your package soon and you love it.
    What fun decorating the tree! I cannot wait to get moved and decorate. Have fun!

  3. I like this time of year too, as crazy as the malls are I like getting out and enjoying the festive stuff… for a while anyway. 🙂 Glad you got thru Santa with no tears- that’s a good thing!

    Looks like good reads, I really want to read the Maas books in early 2016 as all the good reviews have me really curious.

  4. Is this your first time reading Throne of Glass? I finally read it recently and I loved it! I want to continue with the second one but I’m waiting for my friend to finish. It’s torture.

  5. Ha! I remember when my kids were younger, it was definitely not a sure thing that no one would cry when they ‘met’ Santa. I’m glad you got your pictures taken without any drama, Grace.
    Your new books are all new to me, but they look good. I want to read The Lilac Girls, not sure why? The color of the cover, maybe?
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

  6. I love the festivity of Christmas…as long as I don’t get into malls with big crowds. I’m a fan of one-stop-shopping, like at a big bookstore that serves coffee.

    My decorating is done, mostly because I decided that “less is more” for the year. I pulled a few things out of the bins, and left the rest.

    I’ve been noticing The Rain Sparrow…and now I’m curious about Life Rewritten. Enjoy!

    Your Instagram photos are great….thanks for visiting my blog.

  7. I couldn’t resist The Rain Sparrow either! It has too many components I love for me to pass it up. Yay for no one crying! I had one who shrieked bloody murder every Christmas but now my little one interrogates him with all kinds of questions about reindeer and procedures and how things work. I always feel like I should pass Santa one of those mini bottles of whiskey after we leave! Have a great week and enjoy your new books!

  8. A stack of great new books there Grace. And I’m pleased for you that there were no tears for Santa.

    I suspect the time between: him not scaring kids; and them no longer believing in him is quite a short period of time!

  9. I’m glad that you are putting up your Christmas decorations! I am a procrastinator when it comes to Christmas. I might say that I’m going to put up decorations early, but then I usually end up putting it off until a couple days before Christmas. Whoops! 😉 I did manage to get the tree up already, so I’m doing better that last year. I hope you enjoy all the books you got this week (and the stuff you get from the Santa box!).
