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….
Hi everybody. If you’re reading this thank you for stopping by today. I’ve been on blog hiatus since late March. Just life keeping me busy but also my computer sucks and I need to purchase a laptop this way I can blog from the comfort of my couch or bed instead of actually having to log onto this old dinosaur. Also, what’s with the WordPress ads? It seems they’ve taken over, I need to go ad free I guess. If you’re on WordPress are you ad free?
I won’t bore you with too much rambling but I’ve been enjoying my summer, we went on vacation to the lake for a week in June and just the usual other stuff is going on. I’m still working on a hybrid schedule which is great. I’m off work this upcoming week and plan on doing a day trip here or there then lounging in my pajamas as much as I can. We’ve had a very hot couple of weeks here with heat advisories and now it finally seems to be letting up a little. I haven’t read too much lately but I’ll be reviewing what I have been reading. I’ve been crocheting alot.
onto my bookish updates…
recently on the blog: I dove right on in and posted 3x this past week.
Book Spotlight: Ruin: A Novel of Flyfishing in Bankruptcy Debut by Leigh Seippel
Book/Author Spotlight: Little Dirt Road and Juiced by Ted Mulcahey.
I re-read Interview With the Vampire by Anne Rice.
in my mailbox:
Oooh! I met Norman Reedus a few months ago!
He was very nice. He gave me a fist bump. He was on book tour for his book called The Ravaged. Unfortunately you couldn’t take a picture with him, you were just allowed to go up and get him to autograph your book but he was so nice and it was worth waiting in line to get to meet him in person. I’m a big TWD fan so this was awesome. He was so Daryl in person lol. I took this pic below while waiting in line to meet him.
The Little House by the Sea (Pennystrand Village Book 1) came via NetGalley/Bookouture. I love this cover and this sounds like a perfect summer read.
I purchased a copy of My Dearest Julia: The Wartime Letters of Ulysses S. Grant to His Wife A Library of America Special Publication when I visited Grant Cottage again this summer while on vacation. The cottage is near where we stay so I took my parents out there for a guided tour of the cabin. They have a little store on the grounds as well as a small museum. I’ll share my thoughts on this one soon.
That pretty much wraps it up, what have you been up to this summer? What are you reading? Watching? I actually just finished re-watching Midnight Mass last weekend. It is so good and was worth the re-watch. I’ve also been watching Becoming Elizabeth which is very good.
I’ll be blog hopping and catching up a little this week. Stay well 🙂 I’ll close with a few vacation views from June.
