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….
Good morning all, happy weekend. It’s hard to believe we are halfway through April already. I like this time of year though, the longer days, the weather warms up and the flowers start to blossom…
I got my first dose of the vaccine two weeks ago. I’m not going to lie, I was excited but also nervous. Thank goodness it went well and my second dose is in a few weeks. I had minor side effects, mainly strong arm pain from my shoulder to my hand but once that peaked around 8 hours after the shot it started to get better and I was back to normal within 48 hours. I feel so much better just knowing I’m halfway there to being fully vaccinated. My husband got his first dose last week and had zero side effects.
On another note, I’ve decided I’ll be doing these Sunday updates every other Sunday because it fits a little better with my schedule. Plus, I’m usually a slow reader and I don’t like to only post Sunday updates with no book reviews in between.
Onto more updates…
in my mailbox this week (both perfect for National Poetry Month):
Impermanence by Ren Powell via Poetic Book Tours for an April 28th review.
Garden in a Seed by Nazanin Mirsadeghi arrived via the publisher for an April post.
Recently on the blog
I shared my thoughts on Puppy Kisses by Lucy Gilmore. This was nice contemporary romance with puppy rescue in the plot.
A Head Full of Ghosts by Paul Tremblay . Um scared much? Yes. I finally started this one and am breezing through it, but I can’t read it late at night before bed like I usually do with my current reads.
Also, Dewey’s Read-A-Thon is April 24. Will you be reading along? I will be this year.
I’ve been working on a granny square shawl for the past several weeks and am nearing the end of the project. I wanted to use mainly Spring/Summer colors, mostly yellow. Here are the granny squares in progress and while being blocked.
My daughter and I are hooked on The Witcher on Netflix. Have you watched it? So good!
That covers my updates for now. Thanks for stopping by. What are you up to lately? Happy reading this week!
