The Sunday Post #69 - A Week Off For Fun

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 missed last week and am late this week but I'm back! I took a break from blogging but only because I was too busy in my every day life. My niece visited for the week and we went and did lots of fun things. We went to a birthday party, the splash pad, one of those indoor jungle gyms, shopping, had a bbq, painted rocks, and more. Here's some of my instagram stories from this past week:
 We're to that point of summer where it rains every single day so any plans have to be carried out before noon. We still get caught in the rain, though. We're getting lots of lazy afternoons now, at least. 

 We made a trip out into the city and stopped at B&N on the way back because it was the release day for Song of the Dark Crystal. I had to have it, of course, because I love the Dark Crystal and adored the first book. It was a bit of a splurge for me.
And of course, we did a quick thrift store trip earlier in the week and I let the kids pick out whatever books they wanted.

I'll be linking up to Book Photo Sundays via Rabbit Ears Book Blog today! I still plan on making this a separate post but I'm running late today so here's a screenshot of my bookstagram feed from the past week or so!

Hopefully I can catch up with my reading, reviewing, and blogging.
Have a great week everyone! 


  1. Sounds like this week was filled with lots of fun stuff :)
    I LOVE the Dark Crystal. I need to get the Funkos for it.

    Love the pictures! Have a great week, Stacy Renee! Happy Reading! :)

  2. Reading The Hate U Give, huh :) must be good! Have a great reading week.

  3. I love the look of all those books! The Hate U Give is on my list.

    Since I live around the corner from B & N, I go check out their bargain tables now and then.

    Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  4. Sounds like you had a fun week!

    Here’s my Sunday Post!

  5. Glad you had a good week! Song of the Dark Crystal sounds pretty good, I've never seen the Dark Crystal but heard lots about it.

    The Dragon of the Month Club looks cute, love that cover. :)

  6. The Dragon Of The Month Club was such a clever, fun story. Sounds like you had quite a bit of fun. Don't feel alone with the rain. That heat brews and the thunderheads come in from the gulf and just open the spigots on us. LOL It doesn't even seem to cool things down. Just adds more humidity. But I'll take it over cold and day!

  7. I just squeaked by getting my Sunday Post up before midnight, so you probably did better than me, ha ha. I loved and adored The Hate U Give, I hope you are loving it, too. I am reading the illustrated edition of Sorcerer's Stone right now. I see it featured in one of your IG photos. Have a wonderful new week. :)

  8. Ooh, I'm excited to hear your thoughts on The Hate U Give - I just finished that one!
