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.

This week was a little bit nuts. I’m not even sure where it went! We did our taxes yesterday. We had so much going on this year and with changing states we just weren’t comfortable doing them on our own. We went to H&R Block and had someone do them for us. We have never needed to do this before and while it wasn’t complicated when we got there I’m still glad we had someone else prepare them. I was fully expecting to have to pay in for some silly reason but it ended up being almost exactly the same as last year. It basically just took the worry out that we were going to mess something up.

Work continues on unpacking. We had to get rid of so much before we came and we don’t have a lot of furniture yet. We mostly need shelving and we haven’t been too happy with anything we’ve seen yet. Our old house had built in bookshelves with glass doors (nothing big at all) and they made for nice storage of the things we wished to display. Our current house is much larger but with less wall space for things like shelves. We’re still figuring it out and I’m okay with that. We’ll get there one day!

The Cellar by Natasha PrestonOutlaw Hearts by Rosanne Bittner

The Cellar by Natasha Preston
Outlaw Hearts by Rosanne Bittner

Both of these were a Kindle deal at some point this week and in one of my wish lists.

On the Come Up by Angie ThomasI read not quite 200 pages of this last night and had it not been for exhaustion I would have tried to finish it all in one sitting. I adore Angie Thomas’s writing. I’ll save any more of my thoughts for my review but so far I am loving it!

Dawn on the Coast by Ann M. MartinDawn on the Coast is today’s nostalgia read. I did some calculating for the rest of the series that I plan on reading which is all of the various spin offs. I’m going to be doing this nostalgia read until February 2023. I can’t even imagine what 2023 is going to look like. I’ll be 38 by the time this is over. I guess it will be awhile before I start another nostalgia series read. But for this week I have another Dawn book and she’s one of my favorites.

Of Blood and Bone by Nora RobertsI flew through Year One and I cannot WAIT to catch up with this series. I have the audiobook so I’m hoping I’ll be able to finish this one earlier in the week. The coming weekend will be busy and won’t allow much reading time. I don’t want to have to wait days to be able to finish this one. Lol

Prophecy by Julie Anne LindseyI requested this book on NetGalley eons ago and never did read it. I’m trying to read one backlisted title from NetGalley a month and I started with my oldest one. I’m really hoping that I like this one. While I don’t anticipate being able to finish this one before next week I’m sure I’ll have it started by then.

    Ugh! Taxes. We still need to do that. I don’t even want to think about it. I swear, every year I hope that we’ll at least get something back and AT BEST we just don’t have to pay. So I’m in no hurry to do them, but probably should just in case we need to find some money :/ I’m glad yours worked out.

    Good luck with the unpacking, sounds like y’all will figure it out as you get settled, just have to get used to doing things differently with the new space. Have a great week 🙂

    I still need to get to taxes this weekend. Ours aren’t complicated this year. Good luck on getting settled. I enjoy the process, cleaning and organizing everything, but it is a LOT of work.

    Nice book haul. Happy reading!
