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.
WHAT I WATCHED
I was skeptical and terrified that this movie would be bad. I mean, who could replace Robin Williams as the Genie and do it well? I am happy to say that this movie was fabulous! The costumes, music, and choreography were brilliant. Will Smith made the Genie his own and it worked. The best part is the addition of Jasmine’s story line about wanting to be leader of her kingdom and NOT needing a man to help her. I can’t wait to see this again.
SINCE, I LIKE TO READ BOOKS ABOUT DOGS AND OTHER ANIMALS, I DECIDED TO BLOG ABOUT THEM IN A SEPARATE BLOG POST ON RANDOM THURSDAYS. IF YOU HAVE READ A GOOD BOOK ABOUT A FURRY FRIEND OR WITH A FURRY FRIEND IN A BOOK, FEEL FREE TO JOIN ME! DON’T FORGET TO LINK MY BLOG TO YOUR POST.
This book is funny and I relate to the MC a bit too much lol.
WHAT I AM LISTENING TO
What I Read Last
A FANTASTIC FIVE STAR BOOK!!! Do yourself a favor and go read this book! Kya is abandoned by everyone she loves and by the age of eight is living on her own in the marshes of North Carolina. She teaches herself to cook and makes money by digging up mussels every morning and selling them to a local market. An older boy, Tate, helps her learn to read which changes her life forever. Kya’s family and friends are the birds, animals, and insects that liver with her in the marsh. She is happy and content. Years later, an acquaintance of Kya’s, Chase, is found dead in the Marsh, and Kya is arrested for his murder. Kya has been alone for years, away from the towns people but now she is front and center for the trial. This amazing story deals with poverty, abuse, resilience, friendship, and prejudice. It is beautifully written and the mystery of who killed Chase will keep you turning the pages.
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 received this from NetGalley.
The uplifting story of two unlikely mountaineers: a man in late middle age and a fearless pint-sized pup who, together, scale Colorado’s highest peaks.
I grabbed these from my local library after seeing them on La La in the Library’s blog. They sound so good! Can’t wait to read them.
A moving novel about two strangers who find that kindness is a powerful antidote to fear.
An utterly wonderful debut novel of love, crime, magic, fate and a boy’s coming of age, set in 1980s Australia and infused with the originality, charm, pathos, and heart of Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
