sunday-post-memeThe Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things you have received. Share news about what is coming up on your blog for the week ahead. See rules here: Sunday Post Meme

Okay I know that it is technically Saturday, but in my defense my server is upgrading and so while my website will not be down, they do not recommend posting anything new for the next two days because it may get lost 😉 So I thought better early than never…or is it late than never?! Oh well, you get the drift!

So I’ve missed everyone the last few weeks and I want to take a minute to thank everyone! Not only do I have my friends and family here but several of you have reached out to me with private messages and through email sending me good thoughts. I want you to know I appreciated all of them and tried my best to respond to all of them. If I didn’t respond, please know that I read all of your messages and thank you from the bottom of my heart!

This week was a fun relaxing week. My husband was on vacation so we lazed around the apartment and didn’t do much of anything! What have you been up to this week?

Currently Reading

I don’t have a cover to share with you on my current read because it’s a beta read. I’m finishing up Ascension by Michelle Bryan, book two in her New Bloods trilogy. If you haven’t read Awaken yet, I highly suggest you do so. It was awesome and book two is not disappointing 😀

What are you reading this week?

This week we are heading home for a few days to spend with family so I probably won’t be reading too much. Though I do plan to start back on my Outlander challenge at some point this week along with reading some ARCs. What do you have planned?

    • This is my first beta read too! And in loving it 🙂
      Book Outlet is the place to go! I usually read everything on my Kindle but discovering this site I found books I’ve been wanting to read cheaper than on ebook form.

    • The Imdalind series is a must! It’s one of my all time favorites. Now is a good time to start too. The last book is coming out soon so you won’t have to wait between books 😉 Have a great week and happy reading!
