Between My Sundays – what happened this week

“Get busy living or get busy dying.” ― Stephen King, Different Seasons

 

 I’m on a high right now, as I’m heading off to Prague for a few days.  I love this picturesque city, crammed with fabulous spires in any direction you look.  I always feel like I’m in a fairytale there, and I can’t wait to wander around the streets.  And relax in outdoor cafes, reading my books, people watching, and embracing that holiday feeling of having all the time in the world.

 

I’m also hoping to make a visit to The Klementinum library, which has been named the most beautiful library in the world.  Hopefully next week, I’ll have photos.

 

I finished Sons of Anarchy, and I’m devastated!  It was such an exciting series to watch, and I truly loved all the characters.  Now I don’t know what series to binge watch next.  Any recommendations for a series that you loved?

Second Chance Sunday – What happened here:

Second Chance Sunday – What happened in the blogosphere:

Feed Your Addiction explains why Rating Middle Grade (and Sometimes YA) Is So Darn Hard for Her!  I totally get where she is coming from and I think we all have to make our own mind up about dilemmas like this. I always feel any book where I have personal experience of a theme, makes me rate it different that if I hadn’t experienced it myself.

Because Reading, and Fantasy is More Fun wonder Can you read a series in a Month? June 2017 Challenge.  This comes at a perfect time for me, as I want to read ACOTAR series.  I bought it last month, but haven’t looked at it since, so this will get me on it.

Books I have received to review: 

 

A Stranger in the House by Shari Lapena

 

Thanks to NetGalley and Random House UK for A Stranger in the House by Shari Lapena.  My adrenaline loving heart couldn’t resist this review

Books I have bought: 

None, thankfully as I have lots of arcs to get through!

Library Haul:

 

No Talking After Lights by Anglea Lambert

 

No Talking After Lights by Anglea Lambert was a quirky looking book that I grabbed from the library.  It’s set in an English boarding school in 1952, and I thought it sounded the kind of innocent, odd book that I like to read from time to time.

So, that’s  my week wrapped up.  Happy Reading to all.

    Congrats about the ARCs! I actually read a lot of ARCs this month myself, although I did not participate in the challenge. Still! I feel accomplished.

    My daughter and son-in-law are headed to Prague in a week, for the first leg of their honeymoon. They’ll be visiting my eldest son, too, as he lives in Prague. It is a fabulous city! (I only know this second-hand and through photos, as sadly, I haven’t gone yet). Enjoy!

    Your books are all tempting…I want the new Lisa Jewell…and The Honeymoon.

    I hope you find a new series to binge-watch. I go through the same thing. I’m watching the final season of Bloodline, just released.

    Have a great week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

    Great month of reading you had, Trish! I see several I want to try too.

    Hope you have a wonderful time in Prague and share photos here. I watch a tv show called The Amazing Race (actually quite educational about other countries, as I haven’t been out of U.S. and Canada yet). Anyway, I saw Prague once in this show and it looked like many really old and historical buildings with nice architecture. You’ll have a blast!

    Have fun in Prague! I never visited the city myself, but it is on my list of places I would like to visit one day. I am looking forward to seeing your pictures next week!

    As for tv series to recommend, I would recommend the Librarians. I really enjoyed that series. Or Star gate or Star Trek is great if you’re in the sci-fi mood.

    I hope you’ll have a great week!

    I think Prague would be an amazing city, and since we have a little Czech blood it’s somewhere I’ve always wanted to go. Hope you have a FAB trip!! And that’s the best feeling in the world, when you’re on vacation and have time to just do whatever. 🙂

    I don’t know if I have any good recommendations but I did like the show Marcella on Netflix, if you have that.

    The Honeymoon looks interesting!

    Your upcoming trip sounds wonderful—have a great time! And I’d love to see your photos of the library there.

    Congratulations on your Clean Sweep prowess! I tanked; I think I’ve read 2 when I’d planned to read 8. If I can finish one more tonight, that will be good.
