Weekly Update #23


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!


First full week of the school holidays and we've had a good week!
It's been a mix of leave and work and we've made the most of our time off.
We've been to the cinema, an aviation museum, and the beach. We also went furniture (window) shopping to get some ideas for the new house for we're going to need to change out some of our furniture before long... All in all, chilled, fun and lovely!
Next week is mostly going to be work, but with a trip to London to take the little dude to visit the Tower.
😊


It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time


⭐⭐⭐ 1/2


Kindle Unlimited



Book One was a mixed bag so I figured I'd check out book two before making up my mind on whether to continue this series.

ARCs



Argh! Excitement overload!
I finally get to read the conclusion to the gripping, sexy and amazing (but mega frustrating!) Blood Type series by K.A. Linde! I'm so happy to have been chosen to be part of the blog tour (again) for I still cannot deal with the last cliffhanger ending... I mean, WTF?! We'll soon find out how that absolute cluster resolves! Oh yes, we will!

When the emotional turmoil of Blood Cure wears off, I'm going to settle in an read rockstar romance (Your Echo) courtesy of Katia Rose and a nice contemporary romance by Kate Angell (recieved via Netgalley).


I saw Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again at the cinema with friends this week, and while I really enjoyed it no one prepared me for the punch in the feels it delivers!
Seriously... I was expecting light, fluffy and happy. 
Not heart-wrenching overlaid with some happy feels to the tune of Abba! Ffs...

The second cinema trip was to finally see Antman and The Wasp!
It's infuriating that it released here about a month after the US. 
WTF Marvel?! WTF.
But anyways... It was good. 

On the TV front, I finished S1 of Black Sails. 
It amused.
I'm still on the fence about whether to bother with S2 though.

Have a great week all!

  5. It sounds like you had the perfect mix of activity and relaxation this week :) I'm not an especially rabid fan of Marvel, so I've skipped the Ant Man movies. I am really looking forward to seeing Christopher Robin sometime soon though—all those feels!

    1. I really enjoyed the first Antman but while I enjoyed the second it wasn't a favourite.
      Christopher Robin does look good!

  7. I thought the Tower of London was pretty cool. All those jewels!!! I had my eye on the Kylie Scott book. Sounds like it was pretty good.

    1. It's nice living close enough to it to be able to go on day trips without having to put up with the reality of living there. :)

  11. Oh I have not yet been to London and I really want to go. Looks like some great reading ahead too. I loved Iron & Magic. Great review! I'm following up my read of it with listening to the audio version. It is the best. Anne - Books of My Heart
