The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @The Caffeinated Book Reviewer It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. Here is what I have been up to this last week.
Thanks to the Polar Vortex this week, I had two days off of work (I work at a school). So, I was able to do a lot of reading and tv watching. There may have been some napping and dog cuddling as well.
WHAT I WATCHED
Greg @GregsBookHaven has talked a lot about this show so when I was home two days in a row from the Polar Vortex, I started watching it. I binged the whole first season in less than 2 days. It is such a great show!
I am enjoying this companion novel to Geekerella.
CURRENTLY LISTENING TO
WHAT I READ THIS WEEK
Another great Jewell book! I love how she writes such great characters. I had no idea who the murderer was and there was a mouth dropping twist at the end that I literally said “No way!” out loud. The cover for this book is perfect too.
I did not finish this book. It just wasn’t for me. It jumped around a lot chronologically and I was confused at what was going on. However, I do believe a more patient person would really enjoy this book. I did skip ahead and read the ending and based on how the book began, it was the perfect ending. I know all that sounds crazy, but I don’t want you all to think it was a horrible book. It was a “It’s me, not you” relationship.
Stacking the Shelves is put on by Tynga at Tynga’s Reviews. Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves. Here are the books I have added to my TBR list this week.
I got this from NetGalley.
I grew up watching Mr. Rogers on PBS so I am excited to check this book out.
For the first time ever, the beloved songs from Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood are collected here in a charmingly-illustrated treasury, sure to be cherished by adults who grew up with Mister Rogers, and a new generation of children alike.
Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood had a revolutionary impact on children’s television, and on millions of children themselves. Through songs, puppets, and frank conversations, Mister Rogers instilled the values of kindness, patience, and self-esteem in his viewers, and most of all, taught children how loved they were, just by being themselves. A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood re imagines the songs from the show as poetry, ranging from the iconic (“Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”) to the forgotten gems. The poem are funny, sweet, silly, and sincere, dealing with topics of difficult feelings, new siblings, everyday routines, imagination, and more. Perfect for bedtime, sing-along, or quiet time, this book of nostalgic and meaningful poetry is the perfect gift for every child–including the child in all of us.
I checked this out from my library.
Two girls are forced into the woods at gunpoint. One runs for her life. One is left behind.
Twenty-eight years ago, Charlotte and Samantha Quinn’s happy small-town family life was torn apart by a terrifying attack on their family home. It left their mother dead. It left their father—Pikeville’s notorious defense attorney—devastated. And it left the family fractured beyond repair, consumed by secrets from that terrible night.
Twenty-eight years later, Charlotte has followed in her father’s footsteps to become a lawyer herself—the ideal good daughter. But when violence comes to Pikeville again, and a shocking tragedy leaves the whole town traumatized, Charlotte is plunged into a nightmare. Not only is she the first witness on the scene, but it’s a case that unleashes the terrible memories she’s spent so long trying to suppress–because the shocking truth about the crime that destroyed her family nearly thirty years ago won’t stay buried forever. Packed with twists and turns, brimming with emotion and heart, The Good Daughter is fiction at its most thrilling.

THIS WEEK’S QUESTION IS SUBMITTED BY Angelica @ Paperback Princess .
This weeks prompt is…
Audio books vs Ebook? If the world stopped printing books which would you prefer between the two?
That is a tough one! I think I would chose audio books because I do enjoy listening to them in the car or while I cook.
