It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. Sunday Post is hosted by Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
I hope everyone had a safe, fun New Year! We took it pretty easy and just went out to eat on New Year's Eve, watched a movie (The Gay Divorcee, an old Astaire/Rogers musical), then watched the ball drop. The rest of the weekend we mostly lounged around, although we did take down all our Christmas decorations on Saturday. I love the decorations, but I'm also glad to get my house back in order when the holiday is over.
There's been a lot of busy end-of-the-year posting around here lately!
