The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer that I am linking my Sunday Sum-Ups with. Stop by and say hello!
Unexpected Hiatus: This week I was forced to step away and ended up in bed for a few days straight due to some persistent and difficult symptoms. I hope to be back online by the time this posts, but imagine I will not be able to catch up on all of the missed posts. I will do my best to respond to comments as I am able. I cannot thank everyone enough for all of the wonderful notifications I have been receiving. I am really looking forward to my appointment Tuesday and starting back on some meds.
I am still looking for feedback on my monthly newsletters. So if you sub, first and foremost thank you! But also I would like to know what you want to see. Do you want outside links to interesting articles, more recommendations or possibly something I have not thought of? Drop me a line, please.
I will not be wrapping up my Q&A until later this week. So please feel free to drop any questions you may have in the comments!
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine
By Gail Honeyman
No one’s ever told Eleanor that life should be better than fine.
Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy.
But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kinds of friends who rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been living. And it is Raymond’s big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one.
Soon to be a major motion picture produced by Reese Witherspoon, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine is the smart, warm, and uplifting story of an out-of-the-ordinary heroine whose deadpan weirdness and unconscious wit make for an irresistible journey as she realizes. . .
The only way to survive is to open your heart.
- Monday was a nice change with 20 Questions Book Tag. I promise I am going to try to get better at tags.
- On Tuesday, I decided to share 10 THINGS I HAVE LEARNED AS A BLOGGER THAT MAKE LIFE EASIER.
- I opted to skip Friday Favorites this week as I did not have it pre-drafted and was unable to log in. But it will be back next week.
