Weekly Wrap-Up

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kim @ Caffeinated 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. 

Life Beyond Books 


Wow! Where has this week gone? Does anyone else feel like 2018 just went in a blink of an eye? Next month is already my birthday month...NOOO! Why is my birthday coming faster and faster as I get older...I'm not ready for this! 

This week was another uneventful week. Hubby & I went to watch The Darkest Minds, despite me not having read the book. I don't know how I feel about it yet, the movie was entertaining, and I still enjoyed it, but I suppose I expected more action. I still hope that they pick up the next books, as most series turned to movie, rarely turns out spectacular first time around. 

I really enjoyed the relationship between their little crew, and the love interest between Liam and Ruby was nice, and to be honest, that's probably what glued me to the screen, but I just wish we got more action. I can't wait to read the book and get more of the story.

I also watched To All The Boys I've Loved Before on Netflix, and I love this movie! I'm yet to read the book...I know terrible right? I was in love with the characters! So I'm eagerly searching for the complete collection so I can binge read, I also hope they make follow up movies. 

Have you watched any of these movies? What did you think of it?

Book vs Movie Battle ~ To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han @ Inside My Library Mind

An Open Letter to anyone that reads book reviews @ Vicky Who Reads ~ Interesting discussion post, definitely check this one out. 

Re-reading @ We Live & Breathe Books...can you relate? Do you re-read? 

Do you lend books out @ Torn Pages & Roses 
Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!  Will also be linking up to Mailbox Monday. All books are linked to Goodreads, if you want to add to your shelf.

Was a quiet week in the bookmail front, I received this series from Pan MacMillan, thank you! 

The covers and spine are stunning, the picture does not capture it's 3D effects, despite it being flat on the surface.

Can't wait to read these two, to prep for book 3; Two Dark Reigns, which is released next month! 

Have you read this series before? I've heard so many great things about it, and so excited to get to it.

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

This week's Question?

Where do you post your reviews besides your blog? Please list them all so perhaps we can find some new sites.


(Suggested by Elizabeth @ Silver's Reviews)


I consistently only post on Goodreads and my blog. When it's an Netgalley book I post on Netgalley and Amazon also. Amazon doesn't allow me to post reviews when the books are not yet released, and I rarely remember to post it once it's release date, otherwise I would also post on Amazon.
