Sunday Sum-Up


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @Β Caffeinated Book Reviewer that I am linking my Sunday Sum-Ups with. I highly suggest visiting the Caffeinated Book Reviewer if you have not already. The blog is beautiful and Kimba is fantastic!

As predicted, I am slowing down and fighting off the urge to hit hibernation mode! I have several big transitions occurring at the moment in real life, so I have been out of sorts. But I am excited and look forward to the needed change. I would probably have this post up if I could turn off Fairy Tail.. because that is what real adults do with their Sunday mornings, catch up on anime and talk smack with their nonhusband over video games πŸ˜‰

While I continue with Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood, I have added two more titles to the lineup:

This week I hosted my first giveaway. There are still 3 days left to enter for your choice of a physical or ebook copy of Eye of the Storm by Frank Cavallo. Unfortunately, this is open in the US only. But make sure to enter here.

I am hoping to host something international in the very near future if circumstances allow.

OwlCrate from Jill

I received an awesome OwlCrate this past week that I won, courtesy of Jill @rantandraveaboutbooks. If you are not familiar with Jill, shame on you!! Go familiarize yourself  ❀ Thank you again Jill! This was a ton of fun. My son wanted to make an unboxing video, so we attempted it. It was not thought out well, and we had several retakes due to his TS, but the end result is being shared because it was his idea. And no matter how sillyΒ or off beat, that is the type of mom I am Β πŸ˜‰ Mind you, this was like the fifth go.. so exhaustion settled in. But if you care to check out what happens when a son is as excited for an OwlCrate as mom and decides we need to film the unboxing while cooking dinner, feel free to click hereΒ  to view it on my Facebook page.

Until later this week, stay strong, classy, and fabulous ❀

  1. Thanks for the lovely shot out! I’m so glad you and your son had fun doing an OwlCrate unboxing. They really are a lot of fun to do. Every time you say non-husband it makes me smile. Does he know you call him that? Lol I used to call my ex my roommate. πŸ™ˆ Gilded Cage is so on my radar. But I’m afraid to start anything big this week because I’m doing a buddy read of Crooked Kingdom and all of my time will be devoted to my boyfriend, Kaz! 😍

  2. Well, Fairy Tail is a very good reason to not have a post up! But I see that you do, so you must be good at ignoring temptation.

    I hope you enjoy Vassa in the Night! I wanted to read that too but mixed reviews have made me push it back, and now I’m just waiting for a clearer verdict. πŸ˜‰

    1. Thank you! He jept shouting uncontrollably during the first two takes, then I was having tremors. We were laughing so hard πŸ˜‚

      I mainly tried to catch up on Fairy Tail today because it has been ages. I watch a ton of stuff. Everything from darker like Tokyo Ghoul, Parasite Maxim and Hellsing to lighter episodes of Sailor Moon. I loved Death Note. Although I preferred the manga. Pandora Hearts was a favorite ❀ I do not discriminate haha. Any recommendations?

      I didn’t end up playing much. I spent the day patiently watching him upload all of our backwards compatible games onto the XBox One. I play a lot of RPGs and like shooters. But I am much better at RPGs. I used guild and raid lead in WoW. That was fun! But a life suck haha. Do you play much?

      Man I rambled πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Longest comment response ever haha ❀

      1. You mean *best* comment response ever. For sure.
        I am also all over the place. My favorites lately have been Orange, 91 Days and the Sailor Moon reboot. Sometimes you really need some Sailor Soldiers in your life to lift you up! I also prefer RPG’s, but I haven’t purchased a new console since my Wii– I like replaying my favorites like FFVI, Xenogears, and Skies of Arcadia.

          1. I have only played the first Kingdom Hearts- I’m so behind on RPG’s! I adore that nonhusband plays them with you, though. And of course he thinks your Sailor Moon addiction is cute. He doesn’t get it, but he still likes Sailor Moon– he just can’t admit it or it will ruin his Dude Cred. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  3. I like your Sunday mornings πŸ˜€ I’ve spent mine in front of American Dad while writing posts! I hope you enjoy Vassa in the Night, I’ve read mixed reviews about it but the blurb sounds nice. Unfortunately, we all have learned the hard way that a blurb can lie! Loved the little video! πŸ™‚

  4. Fairy Tail? I’ve never heard of this and am super curious to watch it now! What you’re describing here sounds like my ideal Sunday morning! πŸ˜‰ Hopping onto Facebook now for the video! πŸ˜€
