The Sunday post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This is a bit of a recap post of the week where you can link to the posts you made this week, share news, and even what you have been reading. Some categories might change per Sunday.
I hope you all had a good two weeks.
I have to be honest and say I am very up and down. The pregnancy hormones are making me very emotionally unstable. I’m not comfortable, I have restless legs in the afternoon and half the time I don’t know what to do with myself. I need to take naps in the afternoon most days (which I hate.) Most things are so draining for me. I’m just kind of done with it all, haha. I guess that goes with being 35 weeks. So close, but not yet.
Now I’m done complaining #sorrynotsorry
Amigo also didn’t have the best weekend last weekend when my parents visited. Poor thing. I’ve had to up his medication a bit. The dog was a bit too much I suppose and even our other cat lashed out at the dog when I wasn’t around. She behaved when I was around, haha.
I noticed in June someone used the search term of how does the Dutch version of Hex end? to get to my blog. Hex is by Thomas Olde Heuvelt and he went for a different ending with the English version that was recently released. I’ve had people on Goodreads ask me this too, earlier this year. I find it amusing. But if the author wished you all to know he would have shared something more at the ending of the book. He didn’t so I don’t feel like it is my place to share the Dutch ending of Hex.
Also, this happened:
With everything that happened in America this week, there are just no words. I’m so sorry.
Make Me Read It Read-a-Thon
The poll turned out these books as the top 5 so that is what I am currently reading.
I’ll also add in the complete poll results. It’s always interesting to see what was voted for and how many votes they got. I was surprised to see Splintered end up so high.
What I Watched
★ Independence Day: Resurgence – My husband is a big fan of the first movie so of course we went to the theatres for this second movie. While I find this a highly enjoyable movie I do think there are some plot holes (some things just aren’t explained that well) and characters that could have been cut easily from this movie because they didn’t add anything. But it was interesting to see how our world rebuild it self after the first movie and to see some of the older characters back, and in some cases grown up.
★ Supernatural Season 9 rewatch – I finally finished my rewatch of season 9 so I can start season 10 that I just bought. No spoilers please. I work hard to avoid them.
★ Sports – There are various sports on tv at the moment. The footbal Euro championship is coming to an end tonight. Who do you think will win? I hope France. Portugal has no sympathy points with me. Tour de France has also started last weekend. Like with speed-skating I grew up watching the tour every Summer so that has stuck with me though some years more than others. The climbing has started, and I love watching those days the most. And lastly this week the Euro atheletics championship was held in Amsterdam so that is getting plenty of attention on the Dutch tv. All these sports help getting me through some days.
Best liked on my Bookstagram these last two weeks. Find me there! My username is signourney, as it is almost everywhere. I’m in that point where I’m not too happy with the pictures I have up for this week. It is also not surprising to not see any of them featured as the best 4 liked. I had so little inspiration again for those few. But at the same time they aren’t terrible either so I feel like I don’t want to retake them, but maybe look how to do things differently next time.
