The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. It's Monday, What Are You Reading is a fun weekly meme now hosted by Kathryn at Book Date, where we share what we've read and reviewed over the past week and what we plan to read next.
I'm sad that October is over and November is here although I love Thanksgiving. It is one of my favorite holidays. I just wish the year wasn't nearly over! I'm also starting to worry about winter even though I am hopeful we won't see snow till next month. We do make a contest out of guessing the first snowfall of the year at work. I haven't won yet but maybe this will be the year!

This coming Sunday my sister and I will be taking our mom to see the Moscow Ballet perform The Nutcracker. My mom loves The Nutcracker but she has never seen the ballet so this will be a treat!
Last week on my blog:
Avelynn by Marissa Campbell (review)
First & Then by Emma Mills
I liked this contemporary novel that pays homage to Jane Austen. It wasn't a retelling by any means but I enjoyed it anyway.
A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis
This novel was mostly good. I liked the unusual setting of the insane asylum and trying to figure out who the killer is and I felt sorry for the protagonist. There was a strange twist towards the end of the book that I didn't quite like.
These Shallow Graves by Jennifer Donnelly

Brooklyn by Colm Toibin
The Good Neighbor by Amy Sue Nathan
Kitchens of the Great Midwest by J. Ryan Stradal
