The Sunday Post 5/21/23

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.

Personal Updates

It’s been a pretty quiet week for the most part. Last night I went and played volleyball (I’m typing this up Saturday afternoon), and tonight for the first time in years, I’m going to watch my husband race. For those of you that are newer around here (or for those that don’t remember) he raced dirt track cars for years. We actually met at a local dirt track back before either of us started racing (yes, I raced for a while, too). At the time my mom and his dad both raced. Anywho, he has two track championships under his belt and countless wins, but it’s been awhile since he’s been behind the wheel. We’ll see how it goes.

What I Watched

  • Demon Slayer
  • American Idol

Demon Slayer isn’t really my thing. I’m just finding it okay, but it’s something my daughter wanted to watch with me.

What I Read Last Week

  • Those Three Little Words 4.5 Stars – I absolutely adored Eli. He was perfection, and he put up with some serious crazy. LOL!
  • Assassin’s Apprentice 3 Stars – While I enjoyed the plot of this one, I found the pacing way too slow.
  • Even If It Hurts 5 Stars – This antihero was seriously screwed up. He was abusive, obsessive, possessive, toxic, and extremely manipulative. I know most people would not appreciate this book, and yet I was completely addicted to the story (I honestly couldn’t even properly call it a romance).
  • Georgie, All Along 4.5 Stars – Levi totally had my heart! My heart broke for him, and then it warmed watching him reunite with his brother. The romance was great, but it was really the sibling bond that grabbed my heart in this one.
  • It Ain’t Me, Babe 4.5 Stars – I was scared going into this one. Tillie is good at ripping my heart out and making me want to vomit, and yet I keep coming back for more. There were some horrific things in this book, but fortunately it was written in a way that I could easily compartmentalize with this one. And in the end, I was happy to see all the bloodshed.

Currently Reading

  • Ebook: Raphael by Tillie Cole
  • Physical ARC: The Paris Daughter by Kristin Harmel
  • Audiobook: The Dragon Republic by R.F. Kuang

Happy Reading,

    • He did pretty good considering he hadn’t been in a race car in years and had never driven this specific type of car before. My mom and dad both raced cars while I was growing up, but for my hubs, his family has been racing for many generations now. It’s a neat tie to the past.

    • Yes, Levi and the dog were the stars of the show. And yes, thanks, he was top 5 in his qualifying race, and then finished in the middle of the field for the feature race. I know he wanted to do better, but the kids and I thought it was great. He hasn’t raced in a long time and has never driven this specific kind of car, and it had some minor things wrong with the way it was set up. So, all things considered I thought it was a win!
