Weekly Update #9
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!
I got my car back on Monday - after £366 of repairs! - and all seemed fine up until Thursday when it broke down again! Turns out the repair part was faulty so the garage is replacing it and gave me a courtesy car while they work. It's a bit annoying but at least I don't have anything more to pay!
This week was also parents evening and it was difficult as usual... My little dude is brilliant. He is way ahead of the curve with his learning - it's something that's been remarked on since nursery school when he was barely two years old - and therefore parents evening is a source of pride for my child... But while his academics may be effortlessly advanced, he struggles with the social aspects, with understanding people and emotions and it causes problems which break my heart.
I think the school would LOVE to be able to put him into a box - an ADHD or somewhere on the spectrum box - so that they'd be able to reconcile all his quirks with a tidy little label but he eludes classification and all I can hope for is that as he grows older he is better able to adapt.
Oh, the joys of being a parent!
Beyond that, nothing much of note happened this week.
Blood Type by K.A. Linde
OMG! The ending of this book almost killed me but it was so good...
Rome by Joanna Wylde
I love the Reapers MC and this was an enjoyable installment but won't be a favourite.
I'll be reviewing Rome on the blog tour this week.
Mute by ML Nystrom
This was an enjoyable read.
It was a lot tamer and more cuddly than most MC novels and I enjoyed the lighter side of the MC universe.
This week... This week I added two KU books to the reading pile, one 99p sale, one freebie, and one splurge.
I'm hunting for a new UF fix and this one - where the lead character is a werewolf - sounds pretty good! Fingers crossed I've found a new series to sink into!
All are available on Kindle Unlimited so if it's good, I'm binge reading!
Another KU selection! I was quite excited about reading it until I saw something disturbing about it on another blog and now I'm hesitant as to whether to read it.
This beauty was only 99p!
I love Ginger Scott's books but I haven't read this duo yet. Picking up part one on sale was too much to pass up.
This was a freebie!
I love this cover. It calls to me. It made me buy the book.
I was helpless to resist...
The blurb sounds awesome too.
Yet to begin.
Well, we cheated and went to see Infinity War before finishing the re-watch and I can't talk about Infinity War because spoilers and because I'm emotionally compromised and don't know when I'll recover. Possibly not until I get to watch part two next year...
However! We decided that despite having watched Infinity War, we're going to finish the re-watch anyways - and possibly go to see Infinity War again - so next up is Antman!
MCU aside, we've been watching A Series of Unfortunate Events season two and really enjoyed it. Especially the professor and the little dude... They thought it was all kinds of awesome.
