The Sunday Post #32 - Bookstagram!

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.

Gosh, I feel like I just wrote a Sunday Post yesterday. Time is going way too fast!
It's been raining so much lately. I wanted to watch the Perseid meteor showers but it has rained every night this week. We've mostly been stuck inside which is really no fun at all. I can't wait 'til October/November when it will start to cool off a little! 

I started a "Bookstagram" account to share my books on! I was starting to feel limited with what I could post on my personal account. I wanted that freedom back but I also wanted to post great pics of books because books and photography are two of my biggest passions.

Books I Finished This Week

What I'm Currently Reading

The Peculiar Night of the Blue Heart by Lauren DeStefano - I haven't had much success with reading this author in the past but this sounded like a great little spooky read so hopefully it doesn't disappoint! 

(physical book)
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
I will most likely be starting this today which means I finally get to use one of the two awesome bookmarks I painted just for this series! If you're new here, I am giving away the second 'Shades of Magic' bookmark that I made!

What I'm Watching
The Last Kingdom
This is based off of The Saxon Chronicles series by Bernard Cornwell (which I didn't realize until after I started the show and even though I own the first book in the series...)
I love historical shows and movies and I especially love the history of England and sword battles so I'm really enjoying this. 

I hope you all have a wonderful week! 


  1. I love the covers for the MG books. You got some interesting books. I hope you love all of your new books.

  2. I need to read The Scourge! How was it??? I actually gave away my copy of Evil Wizard to my neighbors kids b/c they are crazy avid readers and I know they will pass the book on to classmates or church friends (I hope). I'm so stoked you're reading A Darker Shade of Magic!! I hope you like it (crosses fingers). I need to start the second book before book 3 comes out next year!!!

    The Last Kingdom looks cool! I'll have to DVR it b/c I love historicals, too :) Have a great week!!!!!!!!

    1. A Darker Shade of Magic hooked me from the first page! I think I'm going to LOVE it! The Scourge was pretty good. I enjoyed it! :)

  3. I know what you mean, sometimes it seems like I just did a Sunday Post and it's time to do another one. lol. I wanted to see the Perseids too and forgot about them!

    I watched The Last Kingdom a few weeks ago and thought it was pretty good. Can't wait for the next one!

  4. I just bought A Darker Shade of Magic on audio and can't wait to listen to it. It's been on my TBR for a long time. I hope you are enjoying it. The Last Kingdom looks really good so I'll need to check it out. I hope you have a great week!

  5. You read and are reading some interesting books!

    Happy reading,
    Books, Movies, Reviews. Oh my!

  6. I wish I was better on Instagram, I rarely post. I need to read a VE Schwab book! Hope you're having a great week!
