Weekly Update #7


Welcome!

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer
It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Now that's explained, it's on to my weekly recap!


Work, work and more work... That pretty much sums up my week.
😐
The little dude and the professor came home on Thursday so that was nice, at least.

I've had a good news / bad news situation with the house we're buying so I'm anxious to see how everything plays out in the coming weeks and months. In an attempt to ignore the house related worries, I'm kick-starting this new week with a trip to Chessington World of Adventures before the little dude goes back to school, which should be fun!

In other news, I lost another 2.5lbs this week bring my total to 8 1/2lbs in 3 weeks! 
😁


Chaser by Kylie Scott


⭐⭐⭐⭐

I enjoyed this one. It was fun, light-hearted and sweet.
My full review will be posted this coming week as part of the blog tour.

Cursed by Fire by Danielle Annett


⭐⭐⭐ 1/2

This was book one in a new UF series. 
I really liked it but every now and again I struggled with it's similarities to Ilona Andrews' Kate Daniels series. 
However, I'll keep reading this series, for I love the possibilities it presents.


None.
Nothing.
Nada!

No purchases, no library books, no review copies or arcs. 
Go me.




Still 3.


Yet to begin.


Oh... 6 or so behind.


Now the family is back, we're cracking on with the Marvel re-watch in preparation for Infinity War!
This week was Iron Man 3 and Thor: Dark World.
πŸ™Œ 

I've also finished S2 of The 100. 
Wow. This show is going to break me... 
All the feelings. 
😭


Blitz: Rebel Heir by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland
Blog Tour: Demons by J. L. Drake
Blitz: The Pleasure of Panic by JA Huss

Have a great week all!

  1. Oh no with the bad news! I hope it is not too bad. We found a perfect one last year but mold. I hope that is not the case there

    1. No, not mold. I think I'd rather deal with mold than builders! :(

  3. Buying a house can be so stressful. I hope the issues get resolved soon. And big congrats on another loss this week! You're doing so well! Glad you enjoyed Chaser. I'm actually listening to one by Kylie Scott right now - the first in the Stage Dive series. Almost at the end and it's been a fun read.

  16. Congrats on the weight loss! I'm in the process of loosing weight as well, and it's been a long slog. Still, better to do it slowly and keep it off, right? I have never heard of any of the books you've mentioned here ha ha, but I'm glad you visited my blog and I found you because now I've learned something new!

  22. I hope things go well with the house you're buying. We've had quite a few family and friends selling and buying houses lately and it's a little nerve racking waiting for everything to close and if it'll work out how they hope. We're big Marvel fans too and I'm really looking forward to Infinity War. Have a wonderful week!

  24. Congratulations on the weight loss! I hope you had a good time at Chessington World of Adventures. It sounds like a fun place! Cursed in Fire sounds interesting. I hope the series gets better as it goes. It sounds entertaining, even if not completely original. I hope you have a great weekend! Happy Reading.
