Sunday Post 9/20/2020

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.

I knew I wasn’t going to follow my Weekly TBR last week… but I still read a TON–surprising since I’ve been in a weird funk.

Sweet Retribution (Ruthless Games #2)Sweet Salvation (Ruthless Games, #3)Pin-up GirlThe Cool Aunt (Hidden Legacy, #5.1)Uppercut Princess (The Heights Crew, #1)

  • Ruthless Games #2-3 by Callie Rose 🍰
    ⭐⭐⭐ – Interesting series although it felt like it was missing something to truly get me to love it.
  • Pin-up Girl by Blake Blessing 🍰
    ⭐⭐⭐⭐ – Not at all what I expected. This was a mystery and dark and lovely.
  • The Cool Aunt by Ilona Andrews 🌱
    ⭐⭐⭐⭐.5 – A little extra by Ilona Andrews on their website. I loved it!
  • The Heights Crew #1-4 by E.M. Moore 🍰
    ⭐⭐⭐⭐ – Definitely some cringe moments and her plan for revenge wasn’t a plan AT ALL, but I couldn’t stop reading. A popcorn-eating, binge-worthy series.

Playing with FireQueen’s Quality, Vol. 2Say Her NameDrawing the Vote: An Illustrated Guide to Voting in AmericaThe Black Mage

  • Playing With Fire by L.J. Shen 🍰
    ⭐⭐⭐⭐.5 – L.J. Shen seems to be hit-or-miss with me, so I’m always worried about starting their books, but can’t seem to stop myself. I’m so glad I picked this one up though, this was great.
  • Queen’s Quality, Vol. 2 by Kyousuke Motomi 💥
    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – Probably my favorite out of the few manga series I’m currently reading.
  • Say Her Name by Zetta Elliot 🎧🌱
    ⭐⭐⭐⭐ – Poetry is best when listened to and I think that does apply her. An emotional read.
  • Drawing the Vote by Tommy Jenkins 💥
    ⭐⭐⭐.5 – Informative, but at times too much. I appreciate all the history and shining a light on minorities, but I would have liked more on current times.
  • The Black Mage by Daniel Barnes & D.J. Kirkland 💥
    ⭐⭐⭐.5 – This was so, so heavy-handed. It is uncomfortable. But also and important read and I hope youth enjoy reading a book where the main characters take down the KKK.

The Demon Prince of Momochi House, Vol. 2Friends with the Monsters (Friends with the Monsters, #1)Some Kind of Monster (Friends with the Monsters #2)Beautiful & Dirty (The Family #1)The Hitman (The Family, #2)

  • The Demon Prince of Momochi House, Vol. 2 by Aya Shouto 💥
    ⭐⭐⭐ – Yeeeaaahhh, I’m not going to continue. It is okay and I like the artwork, but the characters and their actions don’t make sense.
  • Friends With the Monsters by Albany Walker 🍰
    ⭐⭐⭐⭐ – a re-read to remember what happened for book 2. I did like this one more on the second read through.
  • Some Kind of Monster by Albany Walker 🍰🐾
    ⭐⭐⭐ – eeeehhhh this was okay. Interesting, I’m glad I read it, but I still have so many questions and the series is over.
  • Beautiful & Dirty by Katrina Jackson 🍰🌱
    ⭐⭐⭐⭐.5 – This novella is just the start of their series!! I want more so badly omg.
  • The Hitman by Katrina Jackson 🍰
    ⭐⭐⭐⭐ – This was fabulous, I love the female main character, and just everything about this. I cannot wait for more in this series and hopefully we get the continuation for BEautiful & Dirty soon!!!

Academy of the Forgotten (Cursed Studies, #1)Tormentor Mine (Tormentor Mine, #1)When She Belongs: A SciFi Alien Romance (A Risdaverse Tale Book 4)Anonymous Noise, Vol. 8Anonymous Noise, Vol. 9

  • Academy of the Forgotten by Eva Chase 🍰🐾
    ⭐⭐.5 – This book annoyed me to no end. It is dark and mysterious, I read to figure out the mystery, but omg no I can’t keep going.
  • Tormentor Mine by Anna Zaires
    ⭐⭐⭐ – Dark like I have been wanting, but not what I’m craving it felt… too realistically dark for me maybe? I mean, he killed he husband…
  • When She Belongs by Ruby Dixon 🍰
    ⭐⭐⭐⭐ – This was sweet and fun. Not really what I’m in the mood for, but enough to carry me through. I just  really am loving Ruby Dixon.
  • Anonymous Noise, Vol. 8 & 9 by Ryoko Fukuyama 💥
    ⭐⭐⭐⭐ – Is the romance still back and forth? Yeah. So much angst, but I love the artwork, I love feeling the music coming off the page and these kids have sucked me in, so I guess I’ll be finishing this series.

»Did Not Finish

Liar LiarShunned (Kings of Miskatonic Prep, #1)

I ot only 2% into Liar, Liar (give me a break it is over 500 pages) before I gave up. I couldn’t stand the writing or the characters. Shunned I made it about 12% in before calling it quits because I hated the love interests and it was feelings oddly…racist??? Am I the only one that thinks this?!

»Currently Reading

Raise Hell (Hell Hounds Harem, #7)The Hitman's Guide to Tying the Knot Without Getting Shot (The Hitman's Guide #3)

So, with both Raise Hell (Currently 23% in) and Hitman’s Guide to… (1 chapter in) I’m enjoying them, but I’m so not in the mood for them. I’m waiting until I am to continue them because I want to love them and if I read them right now I don’t think they’d get the rating they deserve.

General News

Books: So, yeah I read a ton of books and kind of kept to my overall TBR, buuuuttt not really.
Reviews: Nothin’ but I’m cool with this. I’m still getting into the groove again. I might give myself the rest of the month off and start again in October. *sigh* I’m never going to c atch up.
Watched: Not a whole lot this week. For date night we ended up watching Double World which was… interesting. Thinking of it like a D&D game helped my fiance enjoy it.

Today

I feel like I’m looking for something specific, but I can’t pinpoint what exactly. Sooooo here are some options…

Anonymous Noise, Vol. 10Don't Rush Me (Nora Jacobs #1)Dirty Filthy Rich Men (Dirty Duet, #1)

Anonymous Noise is what I’m looking for at all, but I can read manga whenever and I’m enjoying reading about all these kiddo’s angst. Plus, there isn’t a wait on the rest of the series (finally), so I might as well continue, right? Another book I’m being pulled to read? Don’t Rush Me and I have no idea why. I’m also kind of feeling Dirty Filthy Rich Men which is kind of dark, I think?

I still don’t know though… I’ve spent like 2 hours looking at books to read and I’m still not being immediately drawn to something. I’m not desperate to read anything I’ve come across, so I think I just need to pick something and jump in….

What are you doing on this lovely Sunday?
