AVR News Update
Hello and Happy Sunday! This week has been all about getting ready for Christmas and staying ahead of my 12 Days of a Kensington Christmas. Last minute shopping is done and all but my stuff for hubby is wrapped. I'll do his stuff today since he's working. I've been baking nommynomnoms every few days. I figured it's better to make them a bit at a time or they don't all get eaten before they're stale.

The weather has been ridiculous. We started out cold in the beginning of the week and now we're sitting at 70º. Ugh! I don't mind warm weather the rest of the year, but we need a long cold spell if the bugs are gonna die, the little bastards.

So, only a few more days until Christmas then we barrel along to New Years, ushering out 2013 and welcoming 2014. After that we'll have the long dreary stretch of January and February before Spring is upon us.  Time flies!

That's it for me. AVR News Update signing off. May all your books enthrall you.

  1. I've had Untraceable for a while but haven't read it yet. I'm curious about it, but so many of my review books take priority and I keep putting it off. Hope you have a great week and a Merry Christmas!

    1. I know exactly what you mean about review books. I'm seriously considering taking no more reviews or tours until I can wrestle my TBR into some type of manageable condition.

      Thanks! And you, too! :)

  6. I just finished reading Happy New Year Baby Fortune. Very cute. I still have to write my review.

    We were freezing at the beginning of the week but today it's warmer. Not as high as 70 but we're at 55. Now it doesn't feel like winter anymore.

    Have a great holiday!

  7. 70 degrees, wow. We're about 30 and snow right now, joy. Although with Christmas close, I don't mind. After that... go away.

    Hope you enjoy Game, I'm having a lot of fun with that one. Merry Christmas!

    1. In the 16 yrs we've lived here in NC I don't think we've once had snow. It's so depressing to this Ohio girl.

      I can't wait to read it! Thanks and Merry Christmas to you, too!

  15. There are weeks where I get caught up in the Amazon freebies too, lol. You're the second person I've seen with Game and it looks really good. We're having similar weather right now and it sucks! It's just going to get super cold in Jan and Feb, and ice over...we don't even get real snow here.
    I hope you enjoy your holidays and your stack of new books!

    1. I don't normally go so crazy, but there were so many that looked good! And FREE! LOL

      We don't get real snow either. Well, rarely. When it gets cold we sometimes get ice which is ugh.

      Thanks! Me, too! Happy Holidays to you! :)

    1. I just couldn't resist. *sigh* I did order presents, too and all but one has arrived. It's hard to stay away from the books though. They're like a magnet to me. lol
