The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog…
Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists….
I am moving in slow motion this morning. It’s already almost noon and I am just getting this post ready. Oh well, it’s a lazy kind of Sunday. I can’t believe June arrived so quickly. We’ve had humid and rainy days here plus high temps in the upper 80’s this past week. It’s not bad though, I prefer this over the bitter cold and snow.
It has been a busy work week but that is to be expected. My 45 minute or longer work commute turns into an easy 20 minute drive once schools are out for the summer so that will be very nice soon. And vacation isn’t too far away now so I am counting down the days. I cannot wait to wake up in the cabin right by the lake. That view and the serenity there are what we look forward to every year. It’s the best of the lazy summer days. We have our morning coffee in those Adirondack chairs. There is something wonderful to be said about not being on any set schedule and just lounging around. My parents got hooked on this place as well so they vacation with us in the summers here, our cabins are next to each other.
“A debut novel about an imaginative girl in the year following her parents divorce, and what happens when her creeping premonition that something terrible will happen comes true in the most unexpected of ways.
The year is 1988, and America is full of broken homes. EVERY OTHER WEEKEND drops us into the sun-scorched suburbs of southern California, amid Bret Michaels mania and Cold War hysteria, with Nenny, a wildly precocious, nervous nelly of an eight-year-old, as our guide to the newly rearranged life she finds herself leading after her parents split….”
My thoughts on Meltdown by G.P. James will be up this week. This was a great environmental thriller and scary because it seems like it could happen in real life. I finished it this past week in between reading Needful Things.
It has been another crazy week in the U.S. as far as the news and horrific celebs tweeting horrific things and just being horrific in general, but what really gutted me was learning that Andrew Lincoln will be leaving The Walking Dead after season 9. That’s my boo. Now what? I will continue to watch the show but it will not be the same. And if they kill Rick’s character off, which I am assuming they will because how else would he ever leave. Well, cry fest here. I am mentally preparing myself for that possibility. The show gutted us already with Glen and Carl but maybe Rick next? TWD is extra special to me because my son and I have been watching it from the start. It is our Sunday night ritual, no matter where he is he drops what he is doing and comes home to watch it with me.
Also, my daughter and I watched Veronica which creeped me out very much. It is about a 15-year-old girl who uses a Ouija board with her friends and what follows her after. When they used the Ouija she was trying to make contact with her father who passed away. It is in Spanish but is subtitled. I am fluent so I don’t mind the subtitles but I know some people don’t like having to read along while watching. It is a great scary film, I found it got under my skin. It is set in Spain in 1991 and is based on a true story so at the end the show real pictures from the police investigation.
I am just about finished with my Aunt’s star blanket. Just a few more rows to finish it off.
And last but not least, a pic of my dinner from our fav Cuban restaurant we went to recently. I always get the sizzling chicken breast. Oh my gosh, it is soooo good. It comes with rice and beans but I had already dug in and didn’t snap a pic of that. Also, my sangria.
That wraps up my updates for now. Have a great week ahead and happy reading 🙂 What are you up to?
