The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news - A post to recap the past week on my blog. Showcase books and things I may have received. Share a bit of news about myself and what to expect on my blog in the upcoming week.
After taking my son to the airport (he spent the week in Cancun relaxing on the beach), my husband and I spent the day in Denver. We visited the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, it has been years since I’ve been there. The mummies and dinosaur exhibits are still my favorites.
After the museum we had a wonderful lunch at one of Bryan’s favorite Mexican restaurants. We also visited a couple of local book stores. I could have spent more time browsing, but I think Bryan was ready to get home. We had a great time and it was wonderful spending time with my husband.
This week was fairly relaxing, I was able to catch on some documentaries on Netflix’s. Hopefully this evening I can watch To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.
Tomorrow is our 30th Anniversary, it’s hard to believe that we’ve been married that many years. It seems like time went by quickly, here’s hoping for many more years together.
What I am currently reading/listening to:
I’m really enjoying this, I always love a good Princess book. The second book, His True Queen (Smoke & Mirrors Duet #2) by Jodi Ellen Malpas, is sitting in my cart at B&N.
The Controversial Princess (Smoke & Mirrors Duet #1) by Jodi Ellen Malpas
Her father is The King of England.
She is The Controversial Princess.
Regarded as down to earth by the press and rebellious by The King, Princess Adeline refuses to bow to the royal expectations her title carries. She knows better than anyone that the united front of the royal family is nothing but smoke and mirrors - lies and secrets masked by power and privilege. She wants no part of it, and she will never surrender to The King’s demand to marry a man she does not love. But despite Adeline’s determination to retain her free will, she remains deeply unfulfilled, feeling caged and suffocated.
That is until she meets Josh Jameson. Drawn in by his confidence, Adeline is soon captivated by the scandalously sexy American actor. His ability to penetrate her defenses overwhelms her - his touch is pure fire, and his allure overpowering. Nothing has ever made her feel so alive in a world where she’s otherwise slowly drowning. However, while Josh may be Hollywood royalty, he’s not actual royalty, and Adeline knows The King and his advisors will do everything in their power to keep them apart.
But Josh Jameson becomes the princess’s ultimate vice.
And although she bows to no one, she bows to him.
What I read/listened to this past week:
Beyond Reach (Grant County #6) by Karin Slaughter
A five-star read for me. Oh, my goodness, the very last page, what an ending. Throughout the series I didn’t care for Lena, but in this book when she protected Sara at her uncle’s house, I liked her a little more.
It's Always the Husband by Michele Campbell
I listened to this on audiobook format, the narrator January LaVoy kept the story interesting. The first half was a little slow and boring, the second half was when it all came together and became interesting. The ending wasn’t very surprising, I figured it out early on.
The Kept Woman (Will Trent #8) by Karin Slaughter
This is a re-read for me. When I purchased it in 2017, I had no idea that it was part of a series. I spent the last couple of months binge reading two of Karin Slaughter’s series. The first time reading The Kept Woman, Karin Slaughter did a fantastic job giving backstory of the characters and I didn’t feel lost at all. Now, I’m happy that I read all the previous books in the series. This time while reading it Will, Sara, Faith and Amanda have become favorites, and Angie I’m patiently waiting for her die!
