The Sunday Post #103


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It's a chance to share news - a post to recap the past week on your blog, 
showcase books and things we have received, and share news about what is
coming up on your blog in the week ahead. You can find the info here:

  • It was a week of getting things back in order after having company and returning to our regular routine. And I'm starting to count the days until we get away for some R&R. Lazy days of poolside reading is just two weeks away! 


WHAT I FINISHED IN THE LAST WEEK:
Bittersweet - Sarina Bowen
A perfect example of why I love Sarina Bowen.

WHAT I'M CURRENTLY READING
 The Ones Who Got Away (The Ones Who Got Away #1) - Roni Loren
Only 50 pages in but definitely enjoying it.

WHAT I'M CURRENTLY LISTENING TO
Lick (Stage Dive #1) - Kylie Scott
This has been such a fun listen and I'll definitely continue with the series.

    
KINDLE:
I feel like I've been seeing this one everywhere lately and I couldn't resist when it went on sale.

eARCs FOR REVIEW:
        
If Only - Jennifer Gilmore
Moonlight Seduction (de Vincent #2) - Jennifer L. Armentrout
I may have actually squealed when I got the approval for this one. :)

WON:
Unexpected Eden (Eden #1) - Rhenna Morgan
I won this from a giveaway Rhenna had on Facebook. It's been a while since I read a really good paranormal romance so I have high hopes for this one.





How was your week? Any new books? Any news to share? 
I'd love to hear about it!

    1. I was actually just at Target last night. I think I get a gold star for not pulling up the list while there and buying it all. :)

  4. Oh man! I haven't gone to Target for awhile now. I usually do most of my book shopping at Wal-Mart and 2nd and Charles. I need to check out Target to see what books they have! Hope you have a lovely week!

  7. How nice! I'll count down the days with you, since my countdown is much longer... June! *sigh* I can't wait for a break. I try to avoid Target because I love it too much lol! So I better avoid that post :)

      I know what you mean about Target... once you walk in the door you're done for. LOL

  8. I am heading out to Target in about an hour, so of course, I clicked that link. I love magnetic bookmarks, but I have a bunch and hardly ever read a physical book. Now if I had seen one of those book flattener things, I may have made a purchase. Yeah! I am so glad you liked Bittersweet. One of the few adult contemporary romances to earn 5 stars from me.

    1. Of all the times to see that article... right before you're heading to Target. LOL A book flattener thing? You've lost me, woman. Haha. I can't wait to read the rest of the True North series.

  9. Lazy days by the pool with some good books sounds amazing, Tanya. I'm sure you're having an internal countdown.
    Your new books look really good - I just read my first Vi Keeland / Penelope Ward book today, and I loved it.
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

    1. Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward totally impress me with their mix of humor and emotion. Bossman has been my favorite so far. I actually got teary at parts - but then again I'm a total sap. :)

    1. Great minds must think alike! :) I've been seeing that you're reading/reviewing the Iron Druid series. My husband is currently reading that one and is on book 5, I think. He keeps sharing dialogue from a dog. LOL

    1. I'm really into The Ones Who Got Away. I don't know what it's classified as, but it's so much more that a romance. Lick has been a lot of fun and I'm excited to continue the series. :)

  13. It's always nice to get back to a routine. Especially with a vacation coming up! Hope your new reads are good- If Only has me curious. that's the kind of cover that usually gets my attention. :)

    1. Yep, I'm definitely glad the company happened *before* vacation. If it was after I'd need another vacation to recuperate. Ha!

  14. Ah, a lazy day by the pool, reading a good book. I could really go for that too! I hope you had a good time with your visitors, but yeah, it's always nice when they leave. LOL

  15. What He Doesn't Know sounds really interesting but I'm a little nervous to read it if I'm honest. I'm sensing infidelity and I believe there is a love triangle.
    I'm still going to read it, I know I am, but as I said... Nervous. :/

  21. Oh love that quote. So true. I wish I could have some sunshine and pool reading. We finally have some sun in the forecast that will stay for more than a day at the end of the week. I am so looking forward to it. I have a copy of that Roni Loren book, I need to read it!

    1. Sarina Bowen is one of my favorites. I started with the Him/Us duology that she co-wrote with Elle Kennedy and I was hooked. Now I read everything by her and love it all. :) This is my first my Roni Loren and I'm really enjoying it.

    1. Yep, Play is the next one up. I liked Mal in Lick (“Hey, child bride” LOL) so I’m looking forward to his story. The Ones Who Got Away is going great. A lot of themes touched on plus some serious sexual tension. :)
