Sunday Post. The Cat Strikes Again & Stranger Things Is Back

Sunday, 29 October 2017


Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviews.
Remember me saying last week that I would only participate on the Sunday Post in the middle of every month? Well, after such a warm welcoming (thank you for being so kind), I decided that I can join the Sunday Post every time I have a week with a lot to share. And, this was one of those weeks. 

What happened in my life this week:

🌻 Received my first Fairyloot. I feel this villainous box was made for me. 😈
🌻 Finished reading Hunted by Meagan Spooner. This book is PERFECTION! I don't even have words to describe how perfect it is.  
🌻 Binge watched Stranger Things. So many feels!!!! 😭 I don't know what to do with my life now... Any ideas? I saw this article from Goodreads, 16 Books to Read After Binge Watching "Stranger Things". I haven't read any of the books mentioned, but if you did, which one resembles the series even if only a little bit?
🌻 I finally ordered Leigh Bardugo's Shadow and Bone box set (old covers, but I'm planning getting the new ones too). I read there were a few extras, so I'm very excited about it. Please tell me there are some extras and that I will not have my heart broken. 
🌻 Last Friday (27th) my blog celebrated it's 7th Anniversary. I didn't make it a special occasion since after eight years of blogging on and off, it still seems my blog was only created a few months ago. 
🌻 Just yesterday, my cat spilled milk all over my laptop and the next hours were very critical -I didn't know if the laptop was going to make it. Now, I'm not one hundred percent sure everything is okay with it, but the technician opened it and even used blow dryer, so *fingers crossed*  


LAST WEEK ON THE BLOG...
  • This week I shared my review of The Canary Club by Sherry D. Ficklin. If you love the roaring twenties as much as I do, this book may be for you. I don't know how you feel about romance, so here's a warning: the plot centers a lot on the romance between Benny and Masie. Also, take a look at the trigger warning.   
  • New Halloween Book Bingo post. If you want to learn all about Halloween -do you know why pumpkins came to be associated with this holiday?- take a quick peek if you dare. 

📚 MINI BOOK HAUL 📚


I'm probably going to spoil Fairyloot for someone (apologies in advance... but in my defence one of the books had already been announced and the other I really thought it was easy to guess). As mentioned, this week I received my first Fairyloot and inside there were two books: Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao and another beautiful special edition of The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo -I love this woman, so I'll get all the special editions I can. After unboxing Illumicrate, I'll also unbox Fairyloot and you will see how gorgeous this edition is. Worth going bankrupt.

This week I also received from Blue Moon Publishers via NetGalley Paramnesia by Brian Wilkinson. So happy to get my hands on this book that will only be released on 2018 after being denied at least four requests. Does anyone have any tips to increase the chances of your request being accepted?

How was your week? Which books arrived at your bookshelf? Did you binge watched Stranger Things?

  1. Well, happy 8 years! That's quite a long time to being doing something, even if it's on and off. I swear, I am the only person not watching Stranger Things. I just don't watch much TV. I think I would like it, but I am only home for 3 hours a night after work before I go to sleep, and I just don't tend to fill it with TV. I have been wanting to read Hunted, because I loved Spooner's Starbound series. Glad to hear you liked it.

  3. Happy 8 year blogoversary! I'm glad that you decided to participate more in the Sunday Post. :) My daughter and I will be binge watching Stranger Things this afternoon. Yay! Can't wait! Enjoy the new books. And as for Netgelley, just make sure you put your reviews, and even it you don't like the book. Put a short review anyway. Try some of the Read Now books too, the more activity with reviews it might help you. Hope you have a wonderful week coming up.

  4. Fairyloot sounds like fun! I've been tempted to try a book subscription box, but am terrified what it will do to my crazy TBR pile :) Good luck with your PC, fingers crossed for you! (And a belated welcome to the Sunday Post!)

  9. Happy blogiversary! I feel like I'm the only person in the world who isn't watching Stranger Things. I'd have to cover the cover of Forest of a Thousand Lanterns to read it.
