Weekly Update #60


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!


Another week, another migraine! Fabulous.
Beyond the second brain-blender in a week, I had a pretty good one.
Read a few books, watched some TV and had fun at a BBQ with friends.
Feel like I'm starting to get my balance again so I'm hoping to get back into a semi-normal routine with blogging this week.

The little dude ran his mini-marathon and did so well! So proud of him and his classmates.
The atmosphere was wonderful. All the parents and kids who'd run or were waiting to run from his school clustered together towards the final stretch and the kid's faces as they heard the cheering and their name being chanted as they charged towards the finish... That will stay with me for a while. They were so happy and proud of themselves and there was more than one parent who had a tear in their eye as they watched them.

We finished Saturday with Pizza and Eurovision... I have no idea why we watch Eurovision. The music is most definitely not our type of music but there is something fun and infectious about it. I usually quite like the Scandinavian entries and this year was no exception. Kinda gutted that Norway didn't win, but whatever. 😊



Grave Dance: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Grave Memory: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Grave Vision: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Audiobook


⭐⭐⭐⭐

This series is amazing and I really enjoyed this instalment but for whatever reason, it wasn't quite the 5 star the first three books were.


99p Sale


People are loving it, I want to read it, imagine my excitement when I went to add it to my amazon wishlist and found it on sale at 99p, last Sunday!
Don't know if it's still on sale but worth checking if you're interested.

Kindle Unlimited


I haven't read Willow Winters but she's a RARE2020 author and the Facebook Ad for this had me wanting to read it immediately... But it has to wait, on my kindle, for I have other books to finish first. 😆

Freebie


Romance Reader Book Club gives you a freebie every month and this month was Fallen Ink by Carrie Ann Ryan!
So far, all the books gifted through this book club have been books I don't own so it's working out to be a big win!


GoT... Of course.

Also, I've started a rewatch of Once Upon a Time.
I'd forgotten how much I loved this show.


I love this song... This band are so underrated. This guys voice! 😍

  2. I'm glad he had a good time in his mini marathon. I had a headache for a week that ended up being a sinus infection but is going away now with antibiotics.

    1. Lol, it's a super bad music contest with a representative from the entirety of Europe and for some random reason Australia! It makes you die inside but you laugh lots (they take it so seriously!)

  8. Sorry to hear that you had another migraine but glad it didn't ruin your whole week. Mini marathon, eh? That's quite an achievement for little legs.

    I had wanted to go to the RARE19 up in London but all the tickets had sold out. Rare20 is up in Scotland I think, bit of a trek but I'll have al look a the authors and try to find some new-to-me favourites. ;-)

    Hope you have a great week and enjoy your reads. x

  11. I can't believe Game of Thrones is over! I seem to be one of the few who actually liked the final season and the ending!

    1. Actually... I didn't mind the ending. I had issues with lots this season but the actual ending? Not so much. Made sense to me.
