Weekly Update #11
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!
We had a lovely week last week!
Our village had a fair, we went ten-pin bowling on Sunday and on bank holiday Monday we went to our favourite castle and had a
picnic in the sunshine.
The rest of the week was pretty mellow and uneventful which was great for I've had too much crap going on lately and needed the chill.
A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas
This was a nice read that let you catch up with where all the characters were at after the events of ACOWAR but nothing much actually happens... Sure, it mentions things that are obviously going to be the focus of the new trilogy but there is no elaboration or drama. It's a simple slice of life type of read and as a huge fan of the series it was nice... But it wasn't riveting or necessary.
I finally get to finish this series!
Ok, I'm going to say it: I do not like the models on the cover.
However, I love the background and the outfits.
That said, I really don't care what cover is on this book because it's Hugh and I don't care he's a 'bad guy' in the Kate Daniels series for I love him and I bet that he is the unlikely ally to Kate in the final Kate Daniels novel and I'm going to die of bookwormy happiness.
(Yes, that is a long run-on sentence and I don't care about that either...)
I also pre-ordered Ilona Andrews' upcoming Hidden Legacy novella - Diamond Fire - but it doesn't have a cover yet.
So excited to get my hands on this after the cliffhanger of the first book! But I'm terrified to actually read it. I just know it'll be another cliffhanger ending and that messed up crap will certainly go down... Must work up the courage before diving in!
Yet to begin.
This week I re-visited Sons of Anarchy and watched S1.
I forgot how much I enjoyed this show in the beginning.
Shame it all goes to hell.
As a family, we watched Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Spiderman: Homecoming.
This means we're nearing the end of our Marvel re-watch!
I love these films...
Tell Me Something Tuesday: Do you really read excerpts when featured on blogs?
Review: Kissed by Fire by Danielle Annett
Review: Uncovering You books 1-3 by Scarlett Edwards
This week, I'm taking part in a few blogger memes and a release blitz... Will also post my review for the Percy Jackson series. Yep, I wrote a review of the series rather than the individual books. There's reasons.
Have a great week all!
