The Sunday Post #70 - Book Sleeves!

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'll also be linking up to Book Photo Sundays via Rabbit Ears Book Blog today!

 It surprisingly stopped raining every day here and has been hot instead. Too hot to do anything outside.
I've been wanting to attempt to sew a book sleeve for half a year now and I finally did after finding some Harry Potter fabric at Walmart. I tried it out on some old chevron fabric first and it turned out okay so I tweaked my measurements and made a HP one that I'm in love with. Now I really want to make more (specifically a darker one that I can use all the time without worrying that it'll get dirty) but my Walmart fabric selection is so small and I have no craft stores nearby so it'll have to wait. But yay for not having to spend $20+/- for one sleeve! 



NEW TO MY SHELVES
The first 3 books were Goodreads giveaway wins (I know, lucky me!) and I purchased Unbreakable and the The Falling Machine at the Dollar Tree.

I'm still on a Netflix ban but I have seen a few movies recently.
Kong. Wonder Woman. The Lost City of Z.
Wonder Woman was definitely my favorite. 


I hope you all a wonderful week! :)

  1. I might have a long wait until The Last Tudor comes out in paperback to add to my bookshelves!

    1. I have them all in paperback as well so this one is going to stick out like a sore thumb but it certainly is gorgeous! :)

  2. Those book sleeves look pretty, that's awesome you made one yourself. Maybe you can see if you can order some good fabric online?

    Congrats on the Goodreads wins! I never have won one of those yet, but it's encouraging to hear other people did :).

    I hope you'll have a great week!

  3. Congrats on the Goodread wins! I've never known anyone to actually win...LOL.

    Those book sleeves are lovely...and so are your new books. I'm planning to someday read a book by Philippa Gregory.

    The Hate U Give is also on my list. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  4. It's been hot here a bit but not like you guys, obviously! The Last Tudor looks good. And I kinda want to see Kong, even though I hear mixed things. Mainly because I think it's setting up the other monster movies (Rodan and all that?)

    1. Yes, Kong had lots of other monsters in it. It was good but if they make more I probably won't bother with them.
      Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week! :D
