The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @The Caffeinated Book Reviewer It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. Here is what I have been up to this last week.
Alice doesn’t believe in luck—at least, not the good kind. But she does believe in love, and for some time now, she’s been pining for her best friend, Teddy. On his eighteenth birthday—just when it seems they might be on the brink of something—she buys him a lottery ticket on a lark. To their astonishment, he wins $140 million, and in an instant, everything changes.
I am starting with my foster pup’s pupdate this week because it will probably be the last one. As most of you know, I began fostering senior pups back in March. The first two were Tank and Dash, a bonded Shih Tzu pair.
After they went to their new home (they are doing great by the way) I brought home 12 year old Trixie. Her owner had passed away and the family brought her to the rescue. I am so grateful they took her to a rescue because if she had gone to a shelter, there is a high chance she would have been euthanized for her age.
Well, I fell in love with Trixie right away! She is so sweet and gentle and was so sad. Her eyes said it all. One night I laid down on the floor with her and promised her that she would always be happy, warm, fed, and safe. I am happy to say that this morning I fulfilled that promise. I took her back to the rescue to sign ADOPTION PAPERS!!! Trixie is officially my dog!

I stopped at a local dog bakery and let Trixie pick out a treat to celebrate.
Saturday Situation is put on by Pure Imagination. It is were we review our latest reads. Be sure to check out theirs as well.
These books just amaze me. The author was on the brink of death and this cat found him and wouldn’t leave his side. The result was an instant bond of friendship which saved the author’s life. This story is about their first Christmas together and realizing you don’t have to have a huge house and the latest gadgets or even a huge family to experience what Christmas is all about-peace, love, and forgiveness.
This book starts out with two different characters’ stories from two different parts of the world. One is a missionary and one lives in a small town where his brother mysteriously disappears without a trace. The stories eventually converge in a shocking twist. A very well written book.
Stacking the Shelves is put on by Tynga at Tynga’s Reviews. Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves. Here are the books I have added to my TBR list this week.
Eric was 150 pounds overweight, depressed, and sick. After a lifetime of failed diet attempts, and the onset of type 2 diabetes due to his weight, Eric went to a new doctor, who surprisingly prescribed a shelter dog. And that’s when Eric met Peety: an overweight, middle-aged, and forgotten dog who, like Eric, had seen better days. The two adopted each other and began an incredible journey together, forming a bond of unconditional love that forever changed their lives.

If you celebrate Christmas, do you feel the need to stop reading anything but Christmas-themed romances as the holiday season starts?
No, I only read a couple Christmas books at this time of year. However, I do like to watch a lot of Christmas movies instead. Here are some of my faves.
