The Sunday Post #74 - Goodbye August (+Instagram Giveaway Info)

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.

Another uneventful week! Woot!
(Although I am keeping tabs on Hurricane Harvey... I hope anyone here that is in its path is safe!)
Plus there was the eclipse which I did get to see some of from home. :)
I've been gardening, reading, and painting a little but not much of anything else. I can't believe August is almost over and I'll be spending the next few days trying to catch up on everything so I don't get super behind in September. 

I won both of these on good old Goodreads .
And I won this coloring book from the author!

Picture Book Review: Walter and the Wallet by Billy Bloom
Top Ten Tuesday: Books with School Settings
Can't Wait Wednesday: Whichwood by Tahereh Mafi
Book Blast & $50 Giveaway: Perfectly You by Robin Daniels
Quick Review: The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood

Hurray! I finished 3 books this week for Bout of Books! 


My loan for IT expired an it will probably be another couple of months on hold before I get it back so I started The Fireman by Joe Hill. This one seems pretty good so far. 

I watched both Death Note and What Happened to Monday this week and enjoyed both but I really need a new tv show to watch!

My account is a little bright and wacky right now. 
I am co-hosting a giveaway for a UK paperback copy of Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas on instagram right now! Ends September 3rd at midnight! Follow me at @lazydaylit if you're interested! 

Have a great week everyone! :)


  1. I really want to get the audio cd of It as I just love that book so much. Bit pricey though! I have the paperback of The Fireman but who knows when I'll get to it!

  2. I'm glad your week was uneventful! We are sharing our town with Harvey currently and (honestly) wishing he'd spend time somewhere else.

  3. The Red Sun looks interesting :) have a great reading week!

  4. I loved The Handmaid's it twice, and saw the Hulu show. I am also curious about Joe Hill's books.

    Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  5. Crazy how fast this month flew by right?! I feel like I just can't keep up sometimes. I watched What Happenend To Monday too this week. Strange movie, but I enjoyed it.
    Have a great week and happy reading.

  6. Sounds like a pretty good week! I watched What Happened To Monday and thought it was good- I wasn't sure about it at first but after it got going I kinda liked it.

    Love those covers for Age of and The Red Sun.

  7. You seem to have had a great week. I hope you have another wonderful week filled with great books and everything you love doing. Happy reading. :)
