The Sunday Post

Image
Happy Easter! I hope you all had a lovely Holiday weekend. Today I will link to The Sunday Post hosted by caffeinatedbookreviewer.  This meme talks about our week both on and off the blog.


Life
I had a fairly laid back week. I did some reading, and I posted more content on this blog. I was so happy to have a relaxing week. April is Camp National Novel Writing Month, and my goal is 50 hours. As of right now, I am in my 37th hour of creativity time while writing this post. I am doing multiple projects this month including blog posts, professional blogs, and a fan fic. My plan for this week is to get back into my fan fiction.    I love the story but I ended up working on some other things. I went to church last night and a brunch today.


Books
I did some reading this week, but I didn't read as much as two of my four books. My plan for this week is to read more of those. As of right now, the chapters are pretty short so an hour a day or most days might get me done by the end of the month…

Can't Wait Wednesday

Image
Welcome back! Can't Wait Wednesday is a meme hosted by Tressa at Wishfulendings. This is a re-branding of Waiting On Wednesday which was hosted by Jill at  breakingthespine. The purpose of this meme is  to discuss books we're excited about. These books have not been released yet, but I will expand this to books on my TBR  which I would like to read.

This week I would like to highlight Love From A to Z by S.K. Ali.

Information from Goodreads 

Expected Publication Date

April 30, 2019 from Simon & Schuster

Summary   

marvel: something you find amazing. Even ordinary-amazing. Like potatoes—because they make French fries happen. Like the perfect fries Adam and his mom used to make together.

An oddity: whatever gives you pause. Like the fact that there are hateful people in the world. Like Zayneb’s teacher, who won’t stop reminding the class how “bad” Muslims are.

But Zayneb, the only Muslim in class, isn’t bad. She’s angry.

When she gets suspended for confronting her teacher, and …

Top Five Tuesday- Books I predict will be Five Star reads!

Image
Hello! This is a meme I have seen a few bloggers do and it looks like so much fun! I will posting these when I find that the discussion fits something I can talk about. The meme is hosted by Shanah at Bionicbookworm. Covers come from Goodreads.

Today, we are on the topic of books we predict will be a  five star read.

1- To Kill A Kingdom  by Alexandra Christo


You all know me and know how much I love a retelling. The Little Mermaid is one of my favorite movies and I love Ariel so much. I have heard about this book from others, and I really feel like  this book will be my jam. I  have a copy of this and will probably read it over the summer, as I feel this will be the perfect novel for summer!

2- Sea Witch by Sarah Henning


A retelling from Ursula's point of view? Sign me up! I read the first five chapters of this book for the First Look hosted by Epic Reads a few months back. From the first chapter it swept me into the world and these characters. I have the Ebook of this, and I plan…

Top Ten Tuesdays- Rainy Day books!

Image
Welcome Back! I am having so much fun with Top Ten Tuesdays and getting to know the book blogging community through these posts. As always, Top Ten Tuesdays is hosted by Jana at  thatartsyreadergirl. This meme has been hosted by Jana in January 2018, but was hosted at The Broke and The Bookish since 2010.

The topic for this week is Rainy Day Reads. This means different things for different people,  and for me it means Fantasy and YA. I'm not a mystery reader, but I fee I could be I need to find the mystery to hook me in. I have not read these on a rainy day, but I feel that I would.

1-4 A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas

I was not an active book blogger in 2018, so I feel it best to tell you all this story. In 2018, I had heard all the hype for this series with A Court of Frost and Starlight coming out last May. Following the hype train, and I can tell you that this series is worth all the hype it deserves.  The first book in this series hooked me and continued  …

Welcome Back! This is a series that I started when I wanted to highlight musicals I love that other might not not know of. I have expanded this to include very popular musicals that even a casual fan of theatre would know. Today, I want to talk about a jukebox musical called The Cher Show. I picked this one today because I have opinions on it,and  the cast recording was just released digitally on April 12th. Also, the cast will be taking over The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon tonight. This might be shorter than my other posts because the show is about real people. I will link to the gallery I used for the photos at the bottom of this post.

Hello! I have been wanting a meme where I could discuss my week both inside and outside of my blog. This is when I heard about caffeinatedbookreviewer.com hosting a discussion that fits this topic perfectly.Here is the post about The Sunday post if you would like to find out more! Tynga Reviews also hosts Stacking the Shelves, so I will link to both.


Books I made progress with

I am actively reading a lot of books right now, but I love the change between each and every book I read.

I am on page 93 of 144 in Hotel Dare by Terry Blas. This is a PDF E Arc I won in a giveaway. I plan on finishing and reviewing this book this week. The book is middle grade, and it is a lot of fun to read. In this book there is a character named Olive, and she is a delight.

I am currently on page 200 of 479 in China Rich Girlfriend (Crazy Rich Asians # 2) by Kevin Kwan. Honestly, I didn't think it was possible, but I am enjoying this book more than I did the first one. I love the new characters and I lo…
