Indulgence Insider #62 – MY NEW PUPPY & December Book Haul!

December 18, 2016 by Jeann @ Happy Indulgence | Books, Indulgence Insider


Indulgence Insider is our version of Stacking the Shelves, Bought, Borrowed & Bagged and the Sunday Post, bringing you this week’s haul, bookish news and discussion posts from around the blogosphere!

I am a doggy parent now! We picked up Toby on Friday and he was so shy when he first met us. He’s been such a good doggy so far, even though he misses his litter mates at night. HE’S SERIOUSLY SO CUTE THOUGH that face, it’s so hard to resist!

Meet Toby the Golden Retriever everyone! Totally planning on starting an instagram account for him, I’ll have to share it later. Here’s his instagram account!

    Your puppy is so cute! I hope you love having him home and around the house. And all these shiny new books as well. I'm in specially appreciating the looks of Walk the Earth a Stranger. I want to read that one so badly!

    • Thank you Olivia, he is absolutely adorable and a joy to have around the house, even though he consumes so much time lol. I hope you get to pick up some of these books, especially Walk on Earth!

  2. TOBYYYYYY OH MY GOSH. He's so adorable! And I think roughly the same age as our new kitten? I'll be stalking his Insta, that's for sure 😉 Interested to see what you think of The Edge of Everything, too – I received that one a couple weeks back!

  3. OH MY GOSH YOUR PUPPY IS SO SO CUTE!!! AHHH! I just want to cuddle it! Ooh I really want a copy of Walk on Earth a Stranger because it sounds amazing!!! I hope you enjoy it, also those stickers are SUPER cute!

  4. What a fantastic haul! I also adore the SoC bookmarks set you picked up, because you know how I feel about magnetic bookmarks. (Jenna started me on the crazy obsession, haha.) AND TOBY. HE IS DARLING. <3

  5. Here's what's going to happen when I fly over to your house:
    1. Puppy will be MINE
    2. Strange the Dreamer will mysteriously disappear from your bookshelf


    Also I need to watch your booktube videos 🙂 I like listening to your accent. (AND YOUR CONTENT TOO DON'T GET ME WRONG)

  6. TOBYINDULGANCE OMG I LOVE IT. <3 <3 He's so cute Jeann!

    And I can't wait to see what you think of Exquisite Captive and Walk on Earth a Stranger. 🙂 Thanks for sharing and, as always, fabulous recap!

    • Hehhe he IS adorable! I can't wait to read both of those books. Thank you so much for your friendship and support Zoe and I hope you have a lovely new year!

  7. cw @ readthinkponder

    I won't lie, I showed my sister photos of Toby and we just gushed over him and his adorable smiley face. I can't wait to see more photos of him!! He is so adorable and just arghhhhh T________T
    I can't wait til I can get a dog…
    ONE DAY.
    My recent post Book Recs: #OwnVoices of 2016!

    • Hehehe yess he's so adorable when he's smiling and happy! At least we know he's having a good time. I've been posting on his instagram daily and definitely taking lots of photos. ONE DAY IT WILL HAPPEN TRUST ME

  8. Somewhat Reserved

    Finished the third book in The Spinster Club series and now I'm reading The Curious Tale of the Lady Caraboo.

    • Hehe thank you for following him on instagram! Definitely taking lots of photos at the moment. Yeah, he gets pretty lonely so moving his playpen next to our bedroom works well I think. Happy New Year Becca!

    • LOL yessss omg we have had so much grief, sharpest bites ever! But we're definitely making progress with his biting which is good. OMG we still have to get up in the middle of the night twice a night, hopefully it'd cut back soon.

  9. Bieke (Nelly B.)

    PUPPYYYYYYYY!!! He's adorable! *cuddles*

    Also do I spy Strange The Dreamer int here??? So lucky. I waaaant it.

    Toby is soooooo cute! I love dogs! I have 6 of my own:)
    Looks like you've had a great blogging month. I also got the Fantastic Beasts Screenplay because I loved the movie and just want to re-live it over and over again

      • thebookprophet

        It's amazing! I bet you'll love it. Yeah, the dogs can be a lot of work to keep track of, but two of them are my grandparents' who live in the house with me, my sister, my dad, my mom, and my dad's mom so there's also a lot of people. There was actually a time where the dogs outnumbered the people lol

  11. I'm not really a dog person, but your puppy is so stinkin' cute! He kind of overshadows your bookhaul, because books aren't really that cute in comparison 😛

  12. Yay for getting a new dog, Jeann! I really want to but with my life kind of up in the air it's probably not a good idea, but I love how cute Toby looks! I hope you have a great time with him. <3

    • Yessss I know what you mean! They're a lot of work and you'll need to be settled for a long time once you get them, so it's a good idea. Definitely having the best time <3
