The Sunday Post #111


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:

Not much to say about this week other than it's been rough. There have been some nice moments, though. An impromptu family dinner after a hospital visit to see my father Thursday night. And my mom and my younger sister were at my house for dinner last night. Both were good times that helped lighten the mood and I'm thankful for them.

Review: Moonlight Sins by Jennifer L. Armentrout

WHAT I FINISHED IN THE LAST WEEK:
       
The Fragile Ordinary - Samantha Young
Till Death - Jennifer L. Armentrout
The Fragile Ordinary fell into the good-not-great category 
but Till Death was a real winner.

WHAT I'M CURRENTLY READING: 
This one is dark and more than a little sad, and I have more than enough sad in my life right now, but the story is so good that I'm sticking with it (for now).

    
KINDLE BOOKS:
      
   
Ace of Hearts (The Cursed Ravens MC #1) - Chantal Fernando
Spinning Out (The Blackhawk Boys #1) - Lexi Ryan
Must Be Love (Jetty Beach #1) - Claire Kingsley

eARCS FOR REVIEW:
      
The Simple Wild - K.A. Tucker
Blind Kiss - Renee Carlino
The Impossibility of Us - Katy Upperman




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

    1. Hearing you enjoyed Ace of Hearts totally has me itching to start it soon. I've never read anything by Chantal Fernando but this one really caught my eye.

  11. That's the second Samantha Young book which has not been well received. I am very disappointed. At least JLA never let's you down. ((HUGS)) to you.

    1. Yeah, that Samantha Young one was just okay for me. Maybe her new adult stuff is much better but I probably won't be rushing to read them anytime soon. Too many other tings that I'm super excited to read. And you're right... JLA never disappoints me! :) (Thanks for the hugs. They sure are needed this week.)

  13. OH MY GOD THAT TOTALLY RANDOM IS HILARIOUS XD. Yes, if we have to die, can I please die doing the one thing I love the most. By the way, I think the comment problem is..fixed now for me. I don't know how, but I am definitely not complaining.

  14. I'm sorry it was a rough week, I hope this next week is better for you. Great post, I love the idea behind it. Looks like you got a few good reads in and have plenty of exciting reads ahead of you! I'm not personally a fan of sad books but I'm glad the plot is good enough to make you want to continue reading. The sign made me laugh, it's something I would hang in my own room.

    1. Thanks Julia. I always enjoy doing the weekly Sunday Posts. And visiting the Sunday Posts of those who participate. It's a fun way to catch up on everyone's week. I'm actually a sucker for sad books (glutton for punishment? LOL) but right now I should really be reading something happier. I love the sign too - it keeps making me laugh. :)

    1. Renee Carlino is one of my favorites so I tend to add her new releases to my TBR without even reading the synopsis. :)
