Weekly Update #13
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 week has mostly been a big ol' bag of I don't give a crap.
I gained 1lb at my Slimming World group, neglected my blog all week and had the most frustrating week at work... But the little dude came second in his school sports day races on Friday and this weekend is a bank holiday weekend (3 days off!) so I just need to pick my motivation up off the floor and make next week a good one!
Branded By Fire by Danielle Annett
This kicked off my reading week and resulted in major rage face.
I just... WTF?
If this is the final book in the series, I'm frickin' returning every one of them for this is not an ending!
All the things not resolved... The abruptness.
I shit you not, I thought the file was corrupted and I was missing half the book the ending is that abrupt and frustrating.
The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata
After the frustrations of my other read this week, I wanted something soothing, sweet and funny so I turned to a favourite.
I think I loved this book even more the second time around.
I bought it, I read it, I'm so pissed off with it I'm seriously contemplating returning it.
I've read a few Mia Sheridan books before and enjoyed them. Picking up some more while free was a no-brainer.
Apparently, the freebie Mia Sheridan books I bought are two-parters... But the other halves were on sale at 99p (nice marketing ploy there!) so I picked them up too. It'd be really annoying to read the freebies and then realise I don't have the rest of the story!
There are 3 Mariana Zapata books that I haven't read.
Lingus is one of them but it's now available on KU, therefore, it's time I read it!
GDPR, aka the devil, came into effect and I swear to the big man upstairs I've never had so many unsolicited and unwanted contact from random companies than I've had this past week!
Good news is most all of them will now legally have to disappear off my radar forever.
This week I finished S2 of SOA and got almost caught up on The Big Bang Theory.
Cover Reveal: Cry Baby by Ginger Scott
Book Review: Bayou Moon by Ilona Andrews
Next week... What on earth do I have next week?
I don't remember and I can't find my notebook.
I REALLY need to blog ahead a bit to avoid the slumps and save myself from disorganization.
I haven't progressed any of my reading challenges....
Have a great week all!
