The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog. This is your news post, so personalize it! Include as much as you want or as little. Be creative, it can be a vlog or just a showcase of your goodies. Link up once a week or once a month, you decide. Book haul can include library books, yard sale finds, arcs and bought books..share them!





This week seem to fly by! Our daughter has finished all her work and can start her summer vacation a little early. And our son is doing a little better, he started his therapy sessions and in his way to feeling better. Finally got, him studying for his learners permit so he can drive himself soon. He’s 17 and I’ve played chauffeur long enough. Lol…

Our weather here has nice and warm. And no more snow to speak of, yay! The pollen is awful though and poor Bucky (our dachshund) is miserable with allergies. Poor dog can’t win! Recently my husband started a new job, and is liking it. But those 3 A.M. wake up suck for up us, we used to be up until that time when he worked second shift. It’s quite a change. Our 3 girl fur babies are all in heat, so my house is a madhouse. What a bunch of grumpy and frisky dogs. Ugh. Oh, and we woke up the other morning to an internet outage. It didn’t come back in till almost 3 in the afternoon. My kids were devastated. Lmao. I read an entire book in one sitting, painted my nails and rearranged my entire room. 🙃

Blog wise was great. It seems that any book that I requested a while ago or even recently all got approved at within a day or two this week. So, of course I had to go and find the first books in Susan Mallory’s series. 😁 So, my book haul is a little crazy this week. Thank goodness most of these don’t come out for a few months. Whew…

Well, I think that about it for me. How was your week?

    Great news with the kiddies. No longer being the designated chauffeur was one job I was thrilled to give up with my son and his friends back in the day, so I know how you feel. Nice book additions too! Happy Saturday before Mother’s Day! Hugs…RO

      I dread it, but he needs to be able to drive somewhere instead of relying on me or a friends to come and get him. The kids around here are in no hurry to get their licenses though. UGH.

      Thank you for the Mother’s Day wishes. Wishing you a Happy Mother’s Day as well. {HUGS}

  2. Carole @ Carole's Random Life in Books

    You seem to have so much going on, Jenea! It is such a good thing when kids start driving. I still take my daughter to things that are in really crowded areas but it has been such a relief. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

  3. Laura Thomas

    nice news for both kids. My dog is suffering from allergies too. he has to take a pill every day and still gets flare ups. Nice bunch of books. that should keep you busy through the next internet failure. LOL My kid goes nuts when its down but I just grab a book too:)

  4. Greg

    Yay for warm weather! I feel for you though on the early wake ups- I can stay up til 3 no problem ha ha, but getting UP at 3- not so much. And 3 furbabies in heat? Yikes, hope THAT passes soon. 🙂

    Lol about the internet outage. Kids do take a rather dim view of that, don’t they?

  5. Lexxie @ (un)Conventional Bookviews

    Ha! You almost got as many books as I did, Jenea 😉 Well done, they all look really good.

    Freddy (one of my dachshunds) also suffers because of the pollen – he sneezes almost as much as I do, poor thing.

    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

    Happy Mother’s Day!!! Do you know my 23 year old still doesn’t have her license, but she is moving halfway across the country, so I won’t be her chauffeur any longer either. I have not read any Susan Mallory books. Where do you think I should start? They have them at the library, so I know I can get some.

  7. Laurel-Rain Snow

    I’ve noticed that my ARC requests tend to come in all at once, too.

    Susan Mallery is an author I recently read for the first time, and now must read more!

    Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  8. Evelina @ AvalinahsBooks

    No more snow indeed! We are actually having summer weather here, it’s pretty hot! Last year this time we still had snow, which is pretty shocking.
    Glad you got approved for so many books! But then again, now you’re going to have to play catch up on NetGalley I guess 😀 good luck!

  9. Michelle@Because Reading

    Happy Mother’s Day!
    Wow that is a lot of book! Good for you! I hope you enjoy them all!

    I feel you with the time. My husband has to get up at 4:30 and drive an hour to work every day (except weekends) and gets home at 4:30. If it wasn’t a good job we would look someplace else but they are awesome to him.

    No internet my kids would go insane! LIKE INSANE! lol I would read too.

    I hope you have a fantastic day, Jeana and this week is awesome for you! Happy Reading!

    If you can’t treat yourself on Mothers’ Day, then when? I hope the coming week is less hectic – that 3 am start sounds fierce… I take it your husband works shifts. I can sympathise as Himself also works both earlies and lates. Have a great week, Jenea:)

  11. Jackie

    The weather has been pretty nice in Calgary too, no snow that is. But it has been known to snow in May so I am not confident in not seeing the end of the white stuff just yet lol. I hope you enjoy Susan Mallory’s books! Take care and Happy Mother’s Day

  12. Samantha

    Glad you had a nice week! I remember my parents being THRILLED when I was old enough to get my license. They practically pushed me into the DMV! Hope you had a great mother’s day!

  13. Tanya @ Girl Plus Books

    Sounds like both kids are doing well… that’s great! I wasn’t in any hurry to get my drivers license either. LOL No internet… ugh! So many new books – isn’t that a great feeling? 🙂

  14. Brittani @ Hope, Faith & Books

    I’m totally not minding the NetGalley approvals that came flowing in this week! Lol. I couldn’t wait to get my license. I got my permit a month after I turned 16. And then my actual license 6 months to the day from getting my permit. My motivation was not having to take the bus to and from school once I got it. Lol.

    Yay for all the new books! I hope you enjoy them all! Have a great week! 🙂

  15. Suzanne @ The Bookish Libra

    That looks like a pretty fabulous book haul. I hope you had a nice Mother’s Day and I’m glad to hear that both of your kids are doing well and that your daughter will get to start her summer break early. I’m sure she’s excited about that 🙂

    The younger generation and the millenials seem to freak out if they lose power or network coverage for an hour. They would have no clue how to survive if a big power cut came along!

  17. Northwoman

    I can’t understand kids not wanting to get their license or drive. I learned to drive at 13, got my license on the day of my 16th birthday and started driving to piano lessons and college classes in the town 40 miles away. I grew up in rural Iowa. My daughter is 21, has her license but literally never drives. But we’ve lived in cities. I did finally convince her to use Uber and she’s good at that now. We took a vacay in NYC and I made her call every Uber for 4 days. 🙂 Uber may be pricey but it’s cheaper than buying another car I guess. Mostly I chauffeur. I like Susan Mallory but it’s been a couple years since I read anything by her. Enjoy your book! Anne – Books of My Heart

    I am thinking you must really love Susan Mallery based on your book haul! We are all suffering with allergies here too. It is the price of warm weather and blooming plants and trees, I will pay it for the sunshine.
