The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. ~ Inspired by the meme In My Mailbox.~ 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.
Hi guys! This past week has been mostly good. I spent all of the last weekend just relaxing with my guy, who took vacation, and then spent the week after we both went back to work basically doing the same thing. I think being in customer service is really wearing on both of, even my best friend is nearly at his breaking point. I don’t have nearly as many bad customers that they do (because walmart…) and I’m finding myself immensely frustrated on their behalf. I did get some reading done, and I’m currently trying to decide if I’ll open on Monday. (It’s Memorial Day in the US).
Tomorrow is also our 9 year anniversary, but we will be celebrating today since he has to work. Not sure what we’ll do yet.

Happy anniversary! Nice reviews this week- I liked Ready Player One too. Any book that has JOUST in it.. love that old game. 🙂 And storm of swords- I think Jaime’s chapters were my favorite part of that book. Good stuff… Dance with Dragons is like SoS in that a lot happens, even if the plot does slow a bit.
Thank you! I’ve only played Joust once but it was a blast. I played it a few years ago at a Disney themed arcade.
I used to work in customer service and urrghh so many rude and plain crazy people! Glad you had a nice break though, that is always badly needed!
YES…so many crazy people. It’s actually a bit scary how many utter loons are out there.
Happy anniversary! I want to read Off the Page – I think it sounds so interesting. Quite the nice book haul – Red Rising and I’ll Give You the Sun have been o my radar for a while – Happy reading!
Thank you! You might want to try out Between the Lines first, it’s the “companion” novel but it feels more like an actual series and that’s the first one.
I’ve never read Joanne Fluke, which is weird because I read a lot of mystery series. Maybe I just haven’t had time. The covers always appeal to me, and that’s the first way I pick a book.
I use to read a ton of cozy mysteries but I had never found myself interesting in this series, and for some reason I just randomly decided to pick it up. It’s a really fun read so far!
Red Rising was an interesting read! I hope you’ll like it as I did 🙂 Have a lovely Sunday!
Me too, thanks for dropping by Sofia!
Happy 9th anniversary – I hope you get to take a break and have a nice long weekend!
I used to work the phones at LLBean and it was hard being unfailingly nice and not sarcastic all the time. I had to save up all my grumpy for when I got home. That went over well.
Oh I totally understand….there are some customers that just push you right to that limit and by the time you get off work you’re ready to light something on fire.
I am glad you had some time to relax! Cait at Paper Fury has me wanting to read I’ll Give You the Sun, despite my usual aversion to YA Contemporary. I still have Red Rising and Jackaby sitting on my Kindle and need to get to them soon. I am on my way to look at your last week’s TTT. Have a wonderful week. 🙂
Hopefully all three will be really good! I’m not big into YA contemporary but I do enjoy one on occasion.
I used to work customer service a long time ago and get the frustration! Happy Anniversary. I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend too. Love the books this week. Some are waiting on my bookshelf to be read:)
