The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog. This is your news post, so personalize it! Include as much as you want or as little. Be creative, it can be a vlog or just a showcase of your goodies. Link up once a week or once a month, you decide. Book haul can include library books, yard sale finds, arcs and bought books..share them!

THIS WEEK IN BOOKS

Currently Reading I generally try not to listen to multiple audiobooks all at once, but I have three books out from the library that I really want to finish before they go back on June 22. So I’m currently listening to…

  • The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh
  • A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
  • The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons
  • The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine

 

Books Borrowed And Bought So I have some surprising news on this front…

-Borrowed In a dramatic twist that no one saw coming, I did not borrow any books this week.

 

-Bought So admittedly I didn’t exactly buy these audiobooks. I got them for free through Audiobook Sync, a summer program run by Audiofile which is open to everyone and which gives everyone two free audiobooks per week. But I couldn’t exactly put these two books in the “Borrowed” or the “Received for Review” categories. If you’re interested in getting either or both of these books for free, they’ll be up for grabs until this Wednesday.

  • I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson
  • Zac & Mia by A.J. Betts

 

-Received For Review I’m super excited to get to…

  • The Last Boy and Girl in the World by Siobhan Vivian (digital audiobook–finished copy from publisher)
  • Unplugged by Donna Freitas
  • Last Seen Leaving by Caleb Roehrig

READ AND REVIEWED

  • Gotham Academy Vol. 1: Welcome to Gotham Academy by Becky Cloonan, Brendan Fletcher, and Karl Kerschl

PERSONAL AND BLOGGING NEWS

So bad news in the audiobooking arena. My laptop’s power cord broke so I had to order a new one which won’t arrive for another 3-4 days. Which means that I won’t be able to listen to my audiobooks from the library. Yes, I could use the app on my phone, but it’s just much more of a pain in the rear. *Big sighs all around* “How are you writing this if you have no laptop?” you may be asking. I’m using a computer at my mom’s work, which is a godsend!

But anyhoo. Enough lamenting. What else have I been up to? Well, I had to get a bunch of blood tests done, so I had to drink this icky sugar water and got stuck with a ton of needles. It was fun (hint: that was sarcasm). But other than that, the week wasn’t that bad. I’m preparing to start taking 2 classes at the local community college in the fall. But since the credits aren’t transferable to my university, I have to pay out of pocket for the classes. My mom has vowed we’ll find some way to pull the money together, though. I’m thinking of taking a biology course and a 2nd year college Arabic course, so that’ll be fun and challenging. I’m looking forward to it!

It’s been chill on the blogging front. I’ve been kind of relaxing on posting because honestly I’ve needed to. There’s not too much planned for this coming week either because of my broken laptop cord. *sighs once more*

Anyhoo, how are you guys doing? What have you been up to? Anything exciting planned? Tell me all in the comments!

Over and out!

  1. Thank you so much for mentioning my post, I’m so glad you enjoyed it! I read I’ll Give You The Sun a while back and I highly enjoyed it so I hope you like it too. I also ‘read’ The Last Boy and Girl, and I saw read in quotes because I actually DNFed that one… I hope you like it more than me though! Sorry to hear about the broken laptop cord and all that bloodwork, you should reward yourself by buying some books (physical books this time LOL). I’ll have to check out that audiobook program because I’ve been meaning to listen to a few but some of them are kind of $$$…

  3. I’ve never read an audiobook 🙈 I’ve been meaning to, but keep putting it off haha.

    Jessica Jones and Sense8 are AMAZING. I’m so excited for the second season for both of them.

    Also, sorry about your laptop! Hope it’s back in action soon. And blood tests are the worst. I’m okay with needles, but when it comes to blood I’m out haha.

  4. Thank you for sharing my post! ^_^ Honestly, I keep meaning to get into audiobooks, but the price sort of scares me and sometimes the voices are really annoying. I would love to just lie down and listen to a book when I’m feeling really tired. Do you have a few recommendations? 🙂
