The Sunday Post #23

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.

It has been another pretty 'chill' week. We were hit with Tropical Storm Colin earlier this week without any damage but my plants got plenty of water. It's just incredibly hot and humid now.
Other than that, I just went shopping for a Father's Day present for hubby that I am eager to show you guys but I am going to wait til next week just in case he decides to take a look at the blog for some reason. I'm almost certain that he will love it but he's so hard to shop for so who knows. And that is your reminder to get your dad or husband or child's father a present or have the kiddos draw up a card or something soon if you haven't already! I'm actually quite the procrastinator so a week in advance is pretty good for me!
I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Books I Finished This Week

Currently Reading

(physical book)
The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis
I love survival stories and this one just sounds amazing. I just started but the prologue had me hooked from the first paragraph. 

Stars Above by Marissa Meyer
I took a break from this one while I attempted to finish Good Omens and now it's almost due back so I'm going to have to rush through it. 

Currently Watching

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
This was the first book I read this year and I wasn't impressed. It was basically just the original story with a few mentions of zombies in it. Just a few. It was basically a hackjob and not a very good retelling. The movie was a little better. There was more plot but at the same time, some of the zombie things from the book were left out. I didn't get any P&P romance vibes from this at all. I'm not too into romance in stories but P&P is one of my favorites so I was hoping for more from it. Especially since I love zombie flicks. 
That's all folks! Let me know how your week went or link to your Sunday Post and I'll be sure to come visit! 


  1. Good Omens pops up everywhere lately... I guess it must be an omen that I need to read it now. Wishing you a lovely week and happy reading!

    1. It's being made into a mini-series for television soon so of course I had to read it! I honestly wasn't too impressed with it though.

  2. Ooh Spiderwick. I only ever saw the movie but I always loved how DiTerlizzi drew fae creatures. I'm kinda curious about Wolf Road now as I like survival stories too sometimes.

    Have a great week!

    1. The illustrations are wonderful! They are super quick reads, too. I read them aloud to my daughter and it still only took me around a half hour. The Wolf Road is turning out to be more thriller than survival story but it is in a survival story type of setting which I tend to love. :)

  3. A week in advance is really good! I'm rubbish at buying presents and always forget...!
    The Spiderwick books are cute, I remember those from.. years and years ago. I think I read them to my little sister, actually.
    P&P is one of my favourites too and I'm always scared when it comes to retellings (and movies)!
    The Wolf Road sounds good, I hope you enjoy it!

    1. I almost always put things like that off til the last minute but it's rainy season here so I took advantage of a lull in the weather. I hate driving in the rain!
      The Spiderwick books are great for reading out loud!
      Thank you so much for stopping by, Annika! Have a great week! :)

  4. I've heard a lot of people say that P&P&Z made a better movie than a book. I definitely want to catch that one at some point.

    1. It definitely was a better movie! That happens so rarely! :)

  5. It's gotten so hot and steamy here. I know it's summer, but I'm more of a spring/fall weather fan. I need to get moving on with the Lunar Chronicles series soon. Hope you have a great week!
