The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s 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.
Merry Christmas! I spent a fun weekend with my sister and now I'm staying with my parents till after Christmas. My sister and her husband and I went to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens and I thought it was amazing. I loved seeing the original characters and really liked the new characters too. I definitely plan to see it again while it's still in theaters. It wasn't all about Star Wars of course. I also enjoyed spending time with my sister and my furry nieces and furry nephew (cat, sheepadoodle puppy and goldendoodle). Saturday was our family Christmas at an Indian restaurant with really good food. Definitely worth the hour drive. Now I plan to relax, watch cheesy holiday movies and bake with my mom. She is hoping to make a yule log for Christmas, something she did years ago when I was a kid.
Did you go and see the new Star Wars movie yet? What did you think of it?
If you celebrate Christmas, I wish you a very Merry Christmas! I have a few reviews scheduled for this week but other than that I plan to take the time off from my blog to just be with my family.
#FitReaders Weekly Check In

I didn't get to exercise that much this past week. I wasn't very motivated and had a couple of rough mornings where my GERD was bothering me so exercise was the very last thing I felt like doing. I will try to work out on my vacation (my mom and dad have a treadmill) but I make no promises! I did order a Fitbit One (finally!) which will be arriving tomorrow so that will hopefully help to motivate me.

Last week on my blog:
My Top 10 Books Read in 2015 (post)
My True Love Gave to Me by Stephanie Perkins, et al. (review)
My Kind of Wonderful by Jill Shalvis
This is the second novel in the Cedar Ridge series about the Kincaid brothers. I had a hard time connecting with the characters in this one or really caring about their romance.
The Great Christmas Knit-Off by Alexandra Brown
I like this story so far though I haven't read very much of it. The heroine is left at the altar when her fiance runs away with her twin sister and when her job is also in danger, she decides to visit a friend in a charming village where she also finds a new chance at love.
What I might read next:
Star Wars: The Force Awakens by Alan Dean Foster
I have enjoyed reading the novelizations of Star Wars movies in the past so I decided to get this one too. I have seen some mixed reviews of it but hopefully I'll like it anyway.
