The Sunday Post #24 - Happy Father's Day!

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.

Happy Father's Day to any dad's that may be reading this. That goes for any mom's playing the role of both mother and father, step-dad's, or any man who has stepped up to take care of another man's child/children. Whatever your case may be.

It has been a hot and rainy week. We've been spending way too much time indoors. I wish I could say that means more reading time but my toddler keeps me busy.
My husband was lucky enough to get today off so we will be spending the day together as a family. I said last week that I would wait til today to show the book that I got him but of course I forgot to take a pic before I wrapped it up so maybe I can take a quick pic and add it later.
 I also forgot to post my Stacking the Shelves yesterday but I got a fun bookish shirt in the mail that I wanted to show you all! (From

Books I Finished This Week

New Picture Books We Read This Week

What I'm Currently Reading

(physical book)
The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis
I'm almost done with this one but I'm taking my time because I have too many books to choose from next and I have no idea which one to start! Way too many good choices. 

Age of Myth by Michael J. Sullivan
So far, I'm enjoying this. I love that this author writes the entire series before publishing the first so there won't be a huge wait between books and no plot holes! 

Currently Watching
Season 4Hubby is getting bored with this show but I still enjoy it. There's always something to chuckle at. Plus I'm pretty sure one of the MCs is getting a big ego and needs 'taken down a peg' so I'm waiting for that to happen. 
Also, COYER started on Friday! If you are interested, there is still time to SIGN UP!
Have a great week! Happy Reading!


  1. It's been hot here too. Summer is definitely here! I always thought the Spiderwick books looked fun but I only saw the movie, although I like the art I've seen. And Age of Myth- I love that cover.

    I watched some Orange is the New Black on Netflix but I'm still on S1. It was pretty funny though.

  2. I am not really feeling this season of OITNB. Its just not as engaging as it used to be. And Piper...she is really getting annoying.

  3. It's decided to become summer here and the humidity has hit us full force. I like heat but not a fan of the humidity. The Spiderwick book looks really good. That's a book that I've been wanting to read for awhile but always forget about it when I'm actually getting books. Have a great wweek!

  4. I'm very excited for COYER! I'm glad that your participating, it'll be fun. Toddlers are a lot of fun, so enjoy the age! Have a good week! :)

  5. Hopefully you and your toddler will be able to get outside. We spent a lot of time outdoors me and my little one, who is now 4. I don't watch much TV unless it's the Disney Channel or Fireman Sam on Amazon Prime. I think I can now sing the Fireman Sam song without help .

    Hope you enjoy your current reads. Have a wonderful week!

  6. Some shows can get tiring after a few seasons, but I'm glad to hear that season 4 of OITNB is still funny. I haven't started watching it yet, but hope to soon.
    Happy reading to you!

  7. Having to stay indoors for long periods of time with my young nieces is enough to make me want to start pulling out my hair. Interestingly enough, it was never a problem with their older brother who could sit and entertain himself for hours with his legos.

    You've got some great books there.
