Weekly Update #67


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!


I haven't been online much this week. I've been busy with work and in the evenings I've been doing the boring adulty stuff like housework and laundry which for some reason has completely dominated any free time I would usually have.
I'll catch up on blog visits and stuff this coming week and get some posts up on the blog too for the blog stuff got a bit neglected!

On a positive note, I got my leave sorted for the little dude's summer break from school and I'm so excited as rather than taking a two week chunk and him having to go to grandparents etc for the rest of the holiday, I'm taking Mondays and Fridays off, every week of his holiday, thus only having three day work weeks from the end of July until September!
It's going to be awesome.
Lots of mini trips and he'll still get to see/stay with family Tue-Thursday... It's just less time for him to get out of any kind of routine and go feral! 😆

The little dude and professor went to (the youtube gamer) DanTDM's arena tour last night and from the pictures, the little guy had a fabulous time... Not sure what the professor thought but since it was for the little dude, I guess whether the professor had fun is moot, lol.


This week, I re-read these two (I know, I'm obsessed!)


And read this one on a KU impulse:


⭐⭐⭐ 1/2

And read (and reviewed) these kiddie's ones:


Iced Out was sweet but nothing special.
If The Shoe Fits was so much fun and a very different spin on Cinderella.
Cherry Blossoms and Paper Planes was absolutely beautiful!


Kindle Unlimited


This one was clicked due to a pesky FB advertisement. Thankfully it was an ok read!

Paperback


Saw it half price while food shopping so finally grabbed it!


Kimberly talks blog maintenance!

The Sharknado Read-a-thon is begins today! 
This is part of the COYER Summer Treasure Hunt and I'll be doing this one. It's about reading books off the physical bookshelf and I must admit I neglect those!
Runs Sunday, July 7 – Saturday, July 13


I watched a few more episodes of Lucifer and I watched the final episodes of The Big Bang Theory (I had 4/5 left of the final season).

The Big Bang Theory's ending was lovely. They did well with that one.



As I said, it has been a very quiet one!

  11. Awesome to get Monday and Fridays off for the Summer! I'm still waiting on my copy of Annette Marie's series, and I'm even more excited hearing you loved them enough to do a re-read! Good to hear they did well with the ending of The Big Bang Theory. I'm still binging the series. I think I'm on Season 2? Not sure. We'll watch like 2-3 episodes. I didn't watch it when it aired originnally, but I love it and binging is fun! :)

    1. Yeay! I'm so glad you're going to read it! I'm actually obsessed. I want summer to be over (even though I'm loving it) just so I can get my hands on the next books!

  12. I looove Lucifer! Just throwing that out there! I was going to pick and reply to things in order of your post but then I got distracted, haha, oops. But, in all seriousness, I hope you enjoy the last few episodes you have left of it. Also, back to the bookish finds, I need to read more by Sophie Kinsella. Hope you enjoy that one and that the upcoming week treats you well!

  13. Oh having 4 day weekends for a month or so sounds lovely!! And I agree-the end of The Big Bang Theory was perfect!

  14. That's awesome you'll have days off with your son through the rest of his summer! And less workdays is always nice in general. :)

  17. I am so glad your leave is sorted out and you'll be able to spend more time with your son on his break. I hear you on the adulting. It gets in the way of blogging--and reading. Annette Marie's books look like such fun! Just looking at the covers I can tell I'd probably enjoy them too. Ooo! Kinsella! It's been a while since I read one of her books. I enjoy her writing style. I hope you have a great week!

  19. Color me jealous of your 3-day work weeks! And the fact that you get to do that all summer... lucky lady! :) I’m kind of marveling that your grocery store has books. Food + books... that’s my kind of store! LOL
