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….
Happy Sunday all. After a very rainy Friday, we are having beautiful Spring weather this weekend. This is my kind of weather in the 70’s, it gives me more energy. This week flew right on by again. And I was busy with the usual Saturday errands and housework yesterday so I skipped the 24 Hour Read-a-Thon this time around. I just couldn’t fit it in like I had hoped to. Hopefully I can do the Fall one. I did get some good crocheting and film watching in this past week which was nice.
Onto my updates…
Recently on the blog:
I reviewed The Disgraceful Lord Gray (The King’s Elite #3) by Virginia Heath. This was fun historical romance and left me with a smile on my face. I recommend it.
On Tuesday, I’m posting the “Outrageous Things I’ve Done for the Love of Books”.
In my mailbox recently…
I received a copy of The Perfect Girlfriend via Amazon Vine. I keep seeing this one around blog land and I am very intrigued.
We recently watched A Quiet Place and it was good. I enjoy post-apocalyptic horror stories and this one was full of suspense. I also got my husband to watch an old childhood favorite with me, The ‘Burbs. Because who doesn’t love 1980’s Tom Hanks movies or Tom Hanks at all for that matter? He is the most awesome.
We went to see the new Pet Sematary because if you know me, you know Stephen King is a top favorite and I can’t not watch any film versions of his books.
I’m a little torn. This version is different from the original, which is a good thing to change it up some but they didn’t develop the characters as much here. Even with the kids, there are really no scenes of them interacting or playing. Gage barely had any screen time. And they left an important flashback out which surprised me. Zelda was changed up a little and that was really scary. I liked what they did with Ellie’s character as far as the creepy factor goes, it gave me the chills. And I liked the new ending. So, overall, worth the watch especially in a dark theater with surround sound. It’s my favorite King novel and I was excited to see this remake of an old classic.
I am still working on my Spring sweater but I did take a break and whipped up the Trenton Shawl this past week, which I finished this morning. This is a project I made with another crocheter I met online. We’ve been online friends for several years and it was fun working on our shawls together and kind of cheering each other on. This is mine in progress. I’ll show a finished pic next updates when I take one. I used LionBrand Shawl in a Ball in Community Coral which is light and colorful. I love the colorway on it.
That covers my updates for now, what are you up to? Enjoy your week and happy reading!
