Weekly Update #12
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!
This has been a fun week...
The professor was ill with a crazy fever and throat infection, the little dude had a bad cold and on Wednesday I was flattened by a migraine, the after-effects of which lingered for a couple of days.
Oh, the joys!
At least there was a royal wedding to amuse on Saturday.
Outwith the house of lurgy, I lost another 0.5lb at Slimming World bringing my total to -12.5lbs.
I wish I'd lost a bit more, but considering how hit and miss I've been with sticking to the plan the last few weeks losing anything is a huge plus!
Some Girls Bite - Chloe Neill
Book One in the Chicagoland Vampires and I really liked it!
Friday Night Bites - Chloe Neill
Book two in the Chicagoland Vampires and I liked this one too!
Definitely going to continue working my way through this series.
Twice Bitten - Chloe Neill
Oh, I loved this one!
Action, shapeshifters and some delicious romantic drama!
Burned by Fire - Danielle Annett
I ramble about my hesitancy about this book below but I'm glad the last book didn't put me off for this was my favourite so far.
Much, MUCH, better than the mess of the last one, which to be fair was mostly the editing's fault.
Now I'm excited to read book four at some point soon!
Burned by Fire by Danielle Annett
I wasn't going to do it.
I was going to wait to see if it released on KU after the absolute shambles of alleged editing in the last book but, as I said in by Kissed by Fire review, I'm a glutton for punishment and I'm too curious for my own good.
Plus, the author has posted a lot in the last few days about 'reports of poor editing' and stating the errors have been corrected and a new copy uploaded so we'll see if it has been corrected and we'll see if it applies to this new one too!
I saw this post from Dani at Perspective of a Writer - 5 Cold, Hard Facts About Commenting Back - and felt the need to share it.
I love returning comments to those who comment on my blog. I also love visiting blogs I like, reading the posts and leaving comments independently of 'commenting back' but sometimes life gets in the way, I'm not online much, and then I feel guilty about missing comments or not commenting regularly.
Therefore, I'm going to employ the notebook and set aside a half hour everyday to just sit with a brew and visit.
Try Something New
I'm trying Dark Romance and have read 3 so far.
The Series That Never... Ends Challenge
I'm aiming to catch up with the Dark-Hunters series
Goodreads 2018 Reading Challenge
I'm aiming for 104 and I've currently read 34.
That puts me 5 behind schedule.
TV watching consisted of S2 of Sons of Anarchy.
Movie watching was The Last Jedi.
Giveaway Hop: Love in Bloom
Review: Some Girls Bite by Chloe Neill
Book Blitz: Marked by Drew Elyse
Review: Percy Jackson and The Olympians Series by Rick Riordan
Lets see... I have a RDL for Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward's latest joint novel. I have a cover reveal for Ginger Scott's upcoming release, Cry Baby, and I'll be posting a couple of reviews.
If I have the time, I'll also try jump onto one of the weekly memes.
Have a great week all!
