A little of this and a little of that.

Inky Edition of the Sunday Post

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. 

Everyday Life:

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.

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!

Stacking the Shelves:

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews and co-hosted by Reading Reality. It’s all about sharing the latest books I have added to my shelves; may it be physical or virtual. I include books I buy in a store or online, books I borrow from friends or the library, audiobooks, gifts and of course eBooks.

Saturday - Stacking the Shelves #48

Thank you for visiting and I have a lovely week ahead.


  1. Happy anniversary! Sounds like you guys had a great time in Denver!

    I watched To All The Boys last night and thought they did a really good job with it.

    1. Thank you Greg. I did watch it this morning and I felt the same as you. I thought it was cute movie. Have a wonderful week ahead.

  2. I've been seeing The Controversial Princess around a lot. It sounds cool and I'm really tempted by the duet but I'm holding back because I struggle with 'Royalty' concept...

    I'm glad you had a nice time in Denver! My other half is flying to Denver as we speak... :)

    1. Oh yes, some of the 'Royalty' books are hit and miss for me. I do enjoy a good princess, but I picked this one up more because of the author. I've enjoyed other books from her.

      Hopefully your husband has a great time in Denver and he has good weather, it's a bit cool here (thank goodness). Thank you for visiting Nicola and have a wonderful day.

  3. I love Karin Slaughter books, so I hope you enjoy them too. I did a pass on It's Always the Husband. I like psychological suspense, but when I read too many they are seem to blur together :)

    1. Karin Slaughter has easily became on of my favorite authors. I feel the same way, if I read to many psychological suspense/thrillers they do blur together. That's why I have to throw in a hunky cover every so often ;) Have a wonderful day Rita.

  4. So glad you loved The Outsider. I love King and confess it was one of my favorites. Your trip to Denver and week without your son sound lovely. Happy 30th. We celebrated our in April. Time flies!

    1. Thank you Kimberly, time sure does fly.

      I'm not sure what has taken me so long to read anything from King, but I have enjoyed the two books so far. Although I've seen the movie Pet Sematary, I would like to read that soon. Have a wonderful day and thank you for visiting.

  5. I absolutely loved TATBILB and I thought that they were able to do a really good job with it. It was just so cute and sweet and I hope that they turn the rest of the books into film adaptations. :)

    If you get the chance, come by my blog and check out my Sunday Post.
    Suz @ Bookish Revelations

    1. I finally had a chance to watch it this morning and I really liked it. It was cute and adorable, I also hope they do continue with the other books. I still need to read the latest one. Have a wonderful Susan and thank you for visiting.

  6. Congrats on 30 years! My parents 30th is this month too haha, hope you have a wonderful anniversary and a great week <3

    1. Thank you. Happy Anniversary to your parents as well :)
      Have a wonderful day.

  7. Happy Anniversary! It is amazing how fast time seems to move and I sometimes wish that things could just slow down a little. Sounds like you had a great day in Denver together.

    1. Thank you Carole. I wish time would slow when it comes to my children. I'm going to miss them when they are out on their own. Have a great day.

  8. Happy anniversary! I’m glad you had fun in Denver. The mummies and dinosaurs at that museum are my favorite, too. I’m envious of your son. I’d love to be in Cancun right now. Have a great week!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. Thank you AJ. So much as been added to the museum since I last visited with my children. Austin is having a great time, although when I talked to him today he was already missing home.

      Have a wonderful week.

  9. That sounds like a pretty good day out! Good food and dinosaurs! I'd love to visit some really good dinosaur exhibits but I don't have the budget to go to London or the US sadly!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I love reading them.
