Sunday Post

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news: a post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. Borrowed from Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

I swear holiday weeks at work are the longest! We had the past Monday off for Labor Day and the four days after that were SO long. I ended up taking a half day on Friday because I was so antsy to get stuff done at home. Other than that it was a pretty good week! I finished not one but two books and we were able to spend some time with friends and my husband’s family yesterday.

I’m really enjoying these cooler temps! Fall and spring are my two favorite seasons. I am so ready to sit with a candle and just pour my heart into the pages of a book. I’ve missed this! I’m hoping for a good cold winter too. This past winter was far too mild and I feel we have had a large insect rise and my sinuses have run roughshod over me this year!

Here’s what we’ve been up to on the blog this week:

Previously on Once Upon a Chapter:

The Hundredth Queen by Emily R. King
I saw Alexa’s upcoming review for this book and then my library had a copy in their new section and it intrigued me. Turns out it was only $1.99 on Kindle.

The Prey by Allison Brennan
After reading Shattered by Allison Brennan I wanted to go back and make my way through her back list. I’ve already read The Prey once but it was several years ago and I want to start at the beginning.

It Happened One Autumn by Lisa KleypasAfter getting over another reading slump I’m trying to better balance books I really want to read, with books that grab my attention, with books I feel I should be reading, and with review copies. I starated a reread of the Wallflower series in the the hopes of moving onto the next generation but never made it past the first book. With my new TBR selection process it only made sense to keep on with the series. I’ve barely cracked the figuritive spine on this one but I feel like it will go quickly!


Sugar Pine Trail by RaeAnne ThayneI’m using September to balance out the rest of my scheduled review requests. Sugar Pine Trail by RaeAnne Thayne is my last officailly scheduled review copy. I have read a few of Thayne’s books in this series and enjoy the small town setting. I’m excited to get into Sugar Pine Trail.

    The week after a long weekend sometimes do drag, I totally agree. Ugh they take forever! And I’m enjoying the cooler temps too- I’m ready for fall.

    The Prey looks pretty good! And I liked your Three Dark Crowns review. I just read the sequel and thought it was better, more action packed.

      It’s funny how sometime a shorter week can seem to take longer. We’re starting to get those gorgeous fall colors.

      It was Allison Brennan’s first novel. Her latest novel made me want to go back and make sure I don’t miss a single thing. 🙂

      Thanks! I’m debating on switching up the Foodie Friday post from one recipe to my week as a whole. I have no idea how much work that would be but I’m giving it some serious thought. 🙂

      I did not enjoy that heat spell we had here when it got back up into the 80s for a few weeks. 🙁 I think now (after a few weeks) I may have more of a blogging slump on my hands. Hopefully my planner organization from today will help get me going again! 🙂

      I don’t know about you but I adored Sugar PIne Trail. It was a good one! I think we have a few more warm days before we start to get our fall weather.

      Exactly! I was never that way before and would have LOVED a winter like we had last year but I definitely think we need much colder weather.
