The Sunday Post #105


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:

  • Happy Sunday from Past Tanya! I'm actually writing this on Friday because by the time you read this I'll be drinking margaritas by the sea, mamacita. Okay, technically it'll probably be a non-alcoholic daiquiri by the pool, but bonus points if you know what movie that line came from. LOL

  • I doubt there will be any posts from me this coming week - and probably no blog hopping, either. My plan is to be Unplugged while I'm away. Sometimes it's good to step away and recharge. :)  


  • Once last thing before I go... any 80's movies fans? Pretty In Pink was always one of my favorites so when I came across this Drop the Mic clip a couple days ago I was loving it! It's Andie vs Duckie! :)



WHAT I FINISHED IN THE LAST WEEK:
    
The One You Can't Forget (The Ones Who Got Away #2) - Roni Loren

WHAT I'M CURRENTLY READING
 Moonlight Seduction (de Vincent #2) - Jennifer L. Armentrout

WHAT I'M CURRENTLY LISTENING TO
About 90% done with this one. My plan to switch to the ebook was foiled since there was a hold for it on Overdrive. At this point I probably won't continue with the series... but I'll see how I feel after I finish it.

    
PHYSICAL BOOKS:
Leah on the Offbeat - Becky Albertalli
So excited to dive into this one! I can't wait to be back in the Simon-verse. :)

eARCs FOR REVIEW:
    
What If It's Us - Becky Albertalli & Adam Silvera
I might have actually squealed when I got the approval for this one. Don't judge. :)

Someone I Used to Know - Patty Blount

We're headed to our favorite resort for some much needed R&R 
so this will be my view for the next week. Wish you were here! :)



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

  1. I hope you are enjoying your vacation. I will be thinking of you, sitting poolside, while my time off is spent driving to and from NC, and packing the kid up. It's like a twofer of things I don't like to do.

    1. Ugh, hope the drive is an easy one, Sam. I’m with you on the packing...that’s a wretched chore. I want tell you that I’m on enjoying my second day poolside, I’m halfway through my first book, and it’s sunny and almost 80 degrees already (before noon). :)

  12. Looks like you're having a much-needed break, Tanya! Hope you're recharging well and proper! Glad to see you're still managing to squeeze in some reading- and wow, congrats on snagging an e-ARC of What If It's Us!!! Hope you have a great time away <3

  13. I hope you enjoy your break! I tend to stay away from blogging on the weekends to allow myself to reset for the week. It's also when everyone is home and I'd rather be spending time with my family. I *might* break that if everyone is napping, or I forgot to schedule something, but I usually stay away for the weekend. :)

    I'm sorry you're not enjoying Burn For Me! It's one of my FAVORITES. But you have What If It's US? and that's AMAZING. <3

    1. That sounds like a good schedule, Lindsi. I often tell myself that I'm going to use weekends as a "catch up" time which means I'm not giving myself time away online/blogging at all. I really need to come up with a better schedule.

    2. I need the weekend to reset! Just try something different every week until you find something that works. :)

  14. Oooh vacation!! I am incredibly jealous, so be sure to pour a daiquiri out for your homie or... something less nerdy :D And seriously, enjoy your break, breaks are so important! So excited that you got What If It's Us!! I hope you love it!

    Also, that Drop the Mic clip is one of the best things I have seen on the internet lately, thanks for sharing it! Too funny! I only saw the movie many, many years later, but I thought she should have gone for Duckie tbh

    1. Let's see, I had two virgin daiquiris... does that count? LOL What can I say, I'm just not a drinker. At least that makes me a cheap date. Ha!
      I've actually read that the original Pretty in Pink ending had Andie and Duckie together. But test audiences didn't like it so they re-shot it with Blaine getting the girl. Methinks they got it wrong.
