My Sunday Catch Up Post #52

Wow! It has been almost two years since I posted a Sunday Post update. I cannot believe it has been that long but it has. I have to say that this has been a nice break and I have enjoyed cuddling my Little One and watching her grow. Now it looks like I am slowing dipping my toes back into reviewing. It feels nice to be back.

      I have so many coloring books I haven’t even started yet… I just don’t have the time to color everyday like I would like!

      Thanks so much for stopping by!

  • fuonlyknew says:

    Welcome back to The Sunday Post! I love coloring books! Have several I’ve finished and it’s so fun to buy all the cool coloring tools too. Looks like you’ll have some reviews to share with us. Lots of great looking books!

    • Dani says:

      It is so nice to be back! 🙂 I have started several coloring books but I have yet to finish one!

      Thanks so much for stopping by today!! Have a great week!

  • danielaark says:

    Wow TWO years Dani!!! Well… Welcome back to the blogosphere! Thanks gor GR friend request! Looking forward to lots of chatting about books
    Love that you had a section about your favorite pins I have some serious crush on pinterest

    • Dani says:

      I know! My kids and life have kept me busy! 🙂
      I love playing around on Pinterest. Now my youngest asks to look at with me!

  • Oh, your new books look tempting! Welcome back, and enjoy the blog world all over again. Thanks for visiting my blog…and have a great week.

  • Lauren H. says:

    Sigh. I <3 adult coloring books. I can't wait to read Lady Midnight. I've read most of Clare's other books. And I actually read the first book in the Call of Crows series by Shelly Laurenston, and I barely remember it. I'll have to check out The Undoing.

    • Dani says:

      I am becoming addicted to adult coloring books. There are soooo many lovely ones out there…
      I too can’t remember what happened in the first Call of Crows book as well! But I gave it a high rating so I must have liked it! 🙂
      Thanks for stopping by today!

  • Greg says:

    Welcome back! I’m surprised how adult coloring books have taken off but it sounds like a great way to relax. Oh, and Lotus and Thorn looks good. I went over to read the blurb and I like the sound of it. The other planetary setting sounds very interesting.

    Have a good week. 🙂

    • Dani says:

      I love coloring and find it so relaxing to sit with the kids and color. They really seem to open up and laugh and we have a lot of fun together.

      I hope you have an awesome week as well! 🙂

  • Deborah says:

    Hi Dani! Welcome back and it’s lovely to virtually meet you!

    Stacks of posts there so you seem to be busy on the book blogging front. I have to admit I haven’t gotten into the colouring book phase. I tried it but was too impatient and it stressed me out – colouring in the lines and stuff!!! 😉

    • Dani says:

      Thanks so much for the welcome back! 🙂 It is lovely to meet you as well!

      Oh I get out of the lines a lot when I am coloring. But I just blend in my mistakes and make it look like it is supposed to be like that!! Haha! My kids are impressed with my art!

  • It looks like you’ve got a ton of new books to catch up with! I still need to read The Wrath and the Dawn… Maybe one day! Have a fantastic week 😀

    Here’s my Weekly Recap!

  • Welcome back to the Sunday Post!! I can’t wait to get to the Rose and the Dagger. Loved the Wrath and the Dawn. Also lots of great books filled up on your Kindle. I need to check out the new Jill Shalvis. Have a great week!

    • Dani says:

      I am going to try and read Nobody But You by Jill Shalvis this week. It sounds really good! 🙂 Have a lovely week!

  • Welcome back to the blogosphere! You have been away as long as I have been blogging. Everyone is oohing and ahhhing over The Rose and the Dagger. I hope you have as much fun reading it as they did. I love coloring books, too. I was using colored pencils, but wasn’t getting the deep colors I wanted. Heather at Random Redheaded Ramblings was talking about using gel pens on the coloring books that have thicker pages, so I bought some and love them. Have a wonderful week with your little one. 🙂

    • Dani says:

      Thanks so much for the welcome! I can’t wait to read The Rose and the Dagger.

      I have been using gel pens as well. They are great for coloring super small areas!
      Have an awesome week!!

  • Kathy Martin says:

    I am so far behind on Christine Warren’s books. I really need to catch up. Here is what I read last week. Happy reading!

    • Dani says:

      The Gargoyles Series by Christine Warren is not my favorite but it is ok. Thanks so much for stopping by today!

  • Lindsey says:

    I’m so excited for The Rose and the Dagger. The first book was definitely the kind you wanted to block out a whole day for! I hope you enjoy it.

  • Congrats on your win. I purchased an adult coloring book awhile back, found it relaxing, but don’t pick it up enough. Have a great week.

  • The Undoing looks good. I am so happy you are back, and I see some wonderful titles in your haul!

  • Nice week…nice blog.

    ENJOY all of your books and your blog.

  • Tressa says:

    Love your review books! I hope you enjoy all your additions and getting back into reviewing. Kids are definitely worth enjoying, so I’m glad you got to do that. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by too!

  • Your coloring books are gorgeous, Dani! And welcome back after your long break 🙂 Little ones growing is the best excuse to stay away from online communities.
    I hope you’ll enjoy your new books! Have a fantastic week and happy reading.

  • Welcome back!
    The Rose and the Dagger? That looks really exciting! I still need to read the first one…
    All the colouring books look so good!

  • Annemieke says:

    Welcome back! Having a break and focusing on the little one is good for a change.
    I still have to read The Wrath and the Dawn. Seeing the second book everywhere is not helping with that itch, haha.

    I hope you have a great week.

  • Wendy Runyon says:

    Welcome back! I really like the coloring books you got for Easter. I’ve gotten back into coloring too–although mostly it’s my daughter and I coloring together. 🙂 She prefers my books to hers–probably because they are mine. LOL Your new books all sound so good, Dani! I’ve read a couple of Jill Shalvis’s books and really enjoyed them.

    I hope you have a great rest of the week! Thank you for visiting my blog!

    • Dani says:

      Two of my kids would rather color in my coloring books than theirs as well. What i do is make copies of the pages they want to color and put them in a folder for them. That way we all can enjoy coloring together!

      Thanks so much for stopping by!
