The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kim the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Grab a cuppa and let me bend your ear (eyes?) for a few minutes with all my bookish news. NetGalley killed it this week, with some great new books, and I broke my usual restraint and grabbed all the arcs!
Between My Sundays – what happened this week
Between My Reads.
Seasonal Reading Habits:
I realised this week that I read more ebooks in the summer than in the winter. Mostly because, I don’t take the time to go visit my library when the weather is good. Instead I use their e-catalogue more. In the winter, browsing the library is a handy way of spending a lunchtime. But when the sun shines, I want to spend my lunch hour outside, lapping up the sun.
On top of that I travel more in the summer at the weekends, and it’s just so much easier to grab my kindle with all it’s books on it. Otherwise I’m carrying about 3 physical books with me – one that I’m nearly finishing and another two to give me choice! Tell me I’m not the only one that does this?!
Anne with an E – added to my Netflix Queue
And I was super excited when Anne with an E dropped on Netflix this week. I adore Anne of Green Gables, all the books, all the tv adaptations, and I’m thrilled to now have a new one to follow. I haven’t seen any of it yet, but it will make an interesting contrast to my other current obsession, Sons of Anarchy!
The weather was fab here this week. So most evenings, post-work and pre-gym, this is exactly where I was and what I was doing.
Clean Sweep ARC May 2017 – updates
I’ve been reading the same ARC all week, so I’m making slow progress.
The Hourglass – read and review posted
Trivial Pursuits – read and review posted
The Whole Thing Together – read and review written
Second Chance Sunday – What happened here:
Second Chance Sunday – What happened in the blogosphere:
Metaphors and Moonlight reveals how She Uses Goodreads. I love Goodreads and I basically use it to track all my books. I can see from my shelves just how many ARCs I have to read, and how many books are pending reviews. I also use it to track my reading thoughts. And my book club is on Goodreads too. So yes, I send a lot of time over there! Do you like Goodreads?
Ikram Reads a Lot wonders Too Many GIFs? Is There Such A Thing? I rarely use GIFs as finding them is not something I enjoy. My my biggest tip to anyone though is You Do You! So if someone loves GIFs, then they should have at it! Do you like GIFs?
Books I have received to review: all the arcs!
Lot of exciting arcs! Looks like it’s going to be the summer of all the thrillers for me!
Most are from NetGalley but The Good Daughter and Before the Fall were unexpected book post. So typical that the week, I grab lots of e-galleys that I get surprise mail too. Not complaining, these all look fantastic!
Books I have bought:
None, thankfully as I now have lots of arcs to get through!
I got the full cast audiobook of I Capture the Castle. As this has been on to to-read with far too long, I was thrilled to see it pop up in the library.
Also Perfect is the second book in a duology so I look forward to seeing how this series finishes up. Plus I need to read it ASAP, or I will forget everything that happened in book one.
So, that’s my week wrapped up. Happy Reading to all.
