The Sunday Post #23

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.


Another week has flown by. Life has been busy this week. I had to work four days and didn’t have a lot of free time. So I honestly don’t have a lot of things to tell you guys this week.

My boyfriend (I still need to get used to saying ‘my fiancé’ LOL) and I watched a view episodes of Game of Thrones, and we still really like it. I also watched another episode of Nashville. So I’m still really behind in both series, but I definitely love both. Especially since they are sooo different.

This weekend I finally didn’t have to work. On Saturday we slept in and then we went to the gym. After the gym we went to Amsterdam, to get my ‘work’ bag fixed. Normally I love Amsterdam, but this time.. Man it was crowded there. It looked like everyone decided to go to Amsterdam. It was a really short visit this time! LOL!!

Books and Blogging:

Blogging wise, I’m proud to say I managed to find a little more balance this week. After work each day I was able to get some blogging done, and I also got some good reading time this week. So I’m really happy.

This Wednesday, I had my new and improved Wednesday’s Favorites post. Since I didn’t receive a lot of negative feedback on my question about tips and tricks to improve my weekly post, I only added a view things and updated my banner. I feel good about it!!

Although I didn’t receive any new books this week, I did sign up for some new exciting Blog Tours I hope I’ll get a spot in.

 And how was your week? Did you receive any good new reads?

Bookish Quotes:


  1. It does sound like you've had a busy week! But I'm glad you found some balance blogging-wise :-) That Tarzan movie does look good, but I haven't seen it yet. Have a great week!

    1. I'm so glad too. I immediately felt more like myself this week. Funny how blogging can make you feel.
      Thanks for stopping by! ;)

  2. Nice to see your review of The Waking Fire as I had it on my TBR. I was afraid it might be a little slow and after reading the excerpt at Amazon I wasn't sure so I'm looking for reviews. :) And I've heard the Tarzan movie is good... I do wanna see it.

    1. The Waking Fire, definitely was a little slow at times. But it still gets my recommendation. It was truly a good read.
      I'm hearing more and more good things about Tarzan. I'm going next Saturday, I hope!

  3. The Tarzan movie looks interesting...might have to check it out too. Have a great week!

    1. It really does. I do hear a lot of different things about the movie. I'm going to check it out for myself on Saturday.
      Have a great week ;)

  4. I'm also looking forward to seeing Tarzan - I loved Greystoke, have you ever seen it? That, also, was about Tarzan attempting to live away from the jungle. I love your quote - we ought to have that on a sign over the kitchen door, to explain why we are such a book-strewn area:)). Have a great week!

    1. I don't think I've ever seen Greystoke. At least not that I remember! LOL!! Sometimes I go watch a movie and at the end I think.. Hmmm I think I've seen this one before. My boyfriend remembers every movie he's ever watched.. I don't. :D
      Have a great week!

  5. I love that quote. I completely agree, so when my daughter calls me a "hoarder," because of my books, I can smile secretly.

    I enjoyed I Let You Go. Have a great week...and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

    1. LOL!! We book people get each other!! ;)
      I Let You Go was definitely a great read!

  6. Just wait till you get married! I've been married 13 years and it just now doesn't seem strange to say husband! I really need to watch Nashville. It looks like such fun and I'm glad that CMT has picked it up so it won't be cancelled. I hate those times when everyone seems to have decided to go to the same place and everything is packed. Hope you have a great week!

    1. Whahaha.. So there's still hope for me. :D
      I really enjoy Nashville. I'm only a view episodes into the first season.. but it's very good so far.
      Thanks for stopping by and Have a great week!

  7. The last time we went to Amsterdam, a few weeks ago, it was super crowded too despite it raining really hard the whole afternoon. No fun on being there then, haha. I guess with Summer it is just going to get worse.

    It took me ages to say husband instead of boyfriend, haha.

    1. Yep.. I'm definitely thinking Summer time isn't the best time to go to Amsterdam. But I do love that city so much, I don't think I can help myself. :D
      I do hope that when we get married, I'll start saying husband easier.. boyfriend just doesn't seem fitting anymore. :D
      Thanks for stopping by and Happy Reading!
