The Sunday Post ~ 8/30/20

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

~this meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~

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.

******************************************

Personal Highlights:

We survived our first hurricane! And we were able to keep our wits about us. That was pretty much the focus of our week. We still have a bit of clean up and some repairs that are needed, but it’s all fairly minor. I’m typing this up to the sound of a chain saw as the hubs cuts up the big branches that fell in the yard that are too big for me to pick up otherwise. I have a nice pile of debris stacking up. Now I just need some cooler weather and we can have a nice bonfire.

Yesterday, though, my besties came over for a visit with their families and we got to have some great book discussions.

On a sad note, I was so super bummed to hear that we lost the Black Panther! I was a bit stunned by that news.

Books Read This Week ~ 

 

Books I’m Still Reading ~ 

I have less than 30 mins left of Hurricane Season, so it’ll most likely be finished today. It’s just been an okay read for me. But I am enjoying the other books I have going!

  2. I really need to read Where Dreams Descend… I just finished Chloe Brown last night and now I’m not sure what to read because my mood is so… moody lol I was really sad about Chadwick Boseman as well 😦 So shocking… Hope you have a good week ahead, Ali! Glad you and your family are okay!

    • I’m about 100 pages into Where Dreams Descend and I’m very much enjoying it! I homeschool my kids and tutor others, and we’re reading Hamlet together. I think all of our discussions have really helped my enjoyment of the book. I hope you love Crownchasers!!!

      • After teaching high school English for 20 years, I think I’m Hamlet-ed out. lol Same for Romeo and Juliet, though I still love Macbeth. This year, my son enters 10th grade, and I’m curious to see which Shakespearean play he’ll read.
        I’m about 75 page into Crownchasers and am loving it so far! Hope you have a great reading week! 🙂

      • Oh wow! Yes, I suppose it would definitely be easy to get burnt out in that situation. Being that I homeschool we have all the books to choose from and we rarely reread. This is our first venture through Hamlet. My son thinks it lacks in plot so far in comparison to Macbeth, which we all enjoyed. Believe it or not, we haven’t yet read Romeo and Juliet. We’re planning on reading it soon, though. So glad you’re loving Crownchasers!! Hope you have a great week!

      • I agree with your son about the plot, especially in comparison to some of Shakespeare’s other plays. Though, after you read Hamlet, you could watch The Lion King together and compare them. That always makes Hamlet fun! 🙂
        Macbeth is my favorite to read and teach, but Romeo and Juliet is good too. R&J is one of his easiest to understand, and you can generate a lot of good discussion with that one.

    • Yes, for the last little bit we’ve been able to get together with our closest friends, but we can’t have any large get togethers here. I believe here you just have to keep gatherings under 50. I have no desire to have that many people at my house either way. LOL! But after months of not seeing my best friends, I have felt so blessed to have time with them again! And book discussions are always awesome!!
