Sunday Post 11/19

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 blogs.

Last Week

So, I thought I got a lot of reading done this week, but no…. In my defense, I had three long night class meetings, spent time with my mother including taking her to a doc. appt, and then I participated in a huge library event yesterday. I’m still exhausted haha. 
I read 4 books this week, but also DNF’d 4 books….. maybe I just had no patience this week?

This One SummerFull House (Full #1)Last First Kiss (Iron Clad Security #2)Rebel Wolf (Shifter Falls #1)

This One Summer is an interesting graphic novel, although I wasn’t in love with it. Full House I listened to, which is pretty meh…. I think I’m getting tired of Janet Evanovich or the narrator. Last First Kiss is a fun little romance where the woman is the bodyguard! 
Rebel Wolf
actually surprised the socks off of me! I got it from Amazon for free and it ended up being my favorite read of the week. Once I get a little spending money, I”ll be buying the rest of the series. 

Dear Delilah (Hudson University, #1)The Curious Tale of Gabrielle (Curiosity, #1)Gork, the Teenage DragonThe One That Got Away

Unfortunately these were all books I received from Netgalley…. really not a great Netgalley week for me, but at least I got some off my list? 
I’m sure my TBR list approves of more books off the list ^_^

Today?

I’ve got a few life things to do today and I’m honestly feeling a bit sick, so I’m not sure if I’ll get around to reading anything 😦

If I do it will be Sawbones if I’m feeling good, or The Lies of Locke Lamora if I end up wanting to treat myself. 

Sawbones (Sawbones #1)The Lies of Locke Lamora (Gentleman Bastard, #1)


How has your weekend reading been going?
