The Sunday Post #17


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

I can't believe it's already May! We are already nearly half way through the year! 
It was in the mid 90's yesterday! I am dreading this summer. It is going to be soooo hot! The kind of hot  that makes  you never want to leave your house in fear that you'll get heat stroke after just five minutes. Don't even get me started on the humidity.
Anyway, hubby and I have been painting the house after Lovebug goes to bed. When we moved in, the walls were yellow and a green that's just a shade or two lighter than the old chalkboards. The darkness was starting to depress me so we are painting everything white to brighten things up. 
Nothing else is new except that I forgot to post my Stacking the Shelves. 

Coming Soon
Book Blast & Giveaway: Dragons Are Real by Valarie Budayr

I took a three day break from reading this week so these are the same books I listed last Sunday.

What I'm Watching
I came across this after finding an animated storybook for my daughter to watch and thought it was so fun (destruction of books aside, of course).

April 2016 Wrap Up


It's been a pretty good month. I read more than I thought I would even though I took about 2 weeks to read Uprooted because it is slow paced (but good!) and I wanted to take my time with it after reading so much in March. I'm hoping to do a little better in May though! 

April's TBR 
I did pretty well with the new TBR idea. I read 8 out of 12 of the books I listed and have rolled over all but one to May's TBR so I will get around to them soon. I strayed a little by reading a comic/graphic novel last minute and started two books (Cress & The Assassin's Blade) that weren't on the TBR.

As in March, I was pretty busy and had little time to make as many trips to the library so we read fewer new picture books and instead reread a lot of the ones we own.
I read 9 new picture books and reviewed 8 of them on Goodreads.
