The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer that I am linking my Sunday Sum-Ups with. Stop by and say hello!
I had quite a few posts go up this week and managed to keep up for the first half, and then I somehow took a nose dive. I am suffering bouts of exhaustion lately and that limited screen time I mentioned is a necessity. I had my visit with the surgeon on Friday. I won’t call it a wash, but feel like we have come full circle. I am just tired of appointments and specialists to be honest and hope to avoid any appointments for the next two months. Sometimes we just have to allow a little time for acceptance and to recharge.
I am excited to have my first Book Outlet order arriving. Although it has already been delayed multiple times. I am also considering sharing my experience with a gifted sub to Hunt A Killer. Any interest there? Any fans of crime that might be curious? No mini review once again. I simply did not read any short stories. I have been caught-up in current reads and some manga at the moment. So this week it is just a quick recap of previous posts and reviews.
Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass #2)
By Sarah J Maas
*This is a buddy read with Kim at Traveling, Gladly Beyond.
“A line that should never be crossed is about to be breached.
It puts this entire castle in jeopardy—and the life of your friend.”
From the throne of glass rules a king with a fist of iron and a soul as black as pitch. Assassin Celaena Sardothien won a brutal contest to become his Champion. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown. She hides her secret vigilantly; she knows that the man she serves is bent on evil.
Keeping up the deadly charade becomes increasingly difficult when Celaena realizes she is not the only one seeking justice. As she tries to untangle the mysteries buried deep within the glass castle, her closest relationships suffer. It seems no one is above questioning her allegiances—not the Crown Prince Dorian; not Chaol, the Captain of the Guard; not even her best friend, Nehemia, a foreign princess with a rebel heart.
Then one terrible night, the secrets they have all been keeping lead to an unspeakable tragedy. As Celaena’s world shatters, she will be forced to give up the very thing most precious to her and decide once and for all where her true loyalties lie… and whom she is ultimately willing to fight for.

A kingdom burns. A princess sleeps. This is no fairy tale.
It all started with the burning of the spindles.
It all started with a curse…
Half sisters Isabelle and Aurora are polar opposites: Isabelle is the king’s headstrong illegitimate daughter, whose sight was tithed by faeries; Aurora, beautiful and sheltered, was tithed her sense of touch and her voice on the same day. Despite their differences, the sisters have always been extremely close.
And then everything changes, with a single drop of Aurora’s blood—and a sleep so deep it cannot be broken.
As the faerie queen and her army of Vultures prepare to march, Isabelle must race to find a prince who can awaken her sister with the kiss of true love and seal their two kingdoms in an alliance against the queen.
Isabelle crosses land and sea; unearthly, thorny vines rise up the palace walls; and whispers of revolt travel in the ashes on the wind. The kingdom falls to ruin under layers of snow. Meanwhile, Aurora wakes up in a strange and enchanted world, where a mysterious hunter may be the secret to her escape…or the reason for her to stay.

Fellside is a maximum security prison on the edge of the Yorkshire Moors. It’s not the kind of place you’d want to end up. But it’s where Jess Moulson could be spending the rest of her life.
It’s a place where even the walls whisper.
And one voice belongs to a little boy with a message for Jess.
Will she listen?

That is it for this past week. I will attempt to catch up and make some rounds in between resting. I would love to hear about your current or recent reads! Have you read any of mine?
