The Sunday Post #58

 
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It's a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead
 
 
Hi everyone!
It was an interesting week this week. We got some seedlings planted but got hit with torrential rains here so it remains to be seen if the seeds drowned or not. I'm going to do a little more planting today if it is nice out and I plan on hitting up the library with the Mister and maybe this week or next I can start my tea garden. Who knows. I've learned to just go with the flow and plan as little as possible since things change in an instant around here.
I hope you all have a great first week of Summer!

  2. Nice review of Natural History of dragons, I've heard lots of good things about that one too. And Bird Box sounds trippy...

    1. Thanks Greg, It was really great, definitely one of the more unique books I've come across. I can't wait to get to The Bird Box, so my review should be up in a couple weeks.

  3. That's a shame about the seedings but they may surprise you and pop up before you know it. Hope you have a great week and happy reading.

    1. Here's hoping. We had tornados not far from us so the rain was horrible but I really wish they'd start growing soon :)

  6. I really hope that your sees will grow. We had the same problem here due to floods but many seeds grew even after it. So my fingers are crossed. I'm sure you'll enjoy this summer. Also you've got a really great haul and I hope you'll enjoy Divergent. Great post :)

  10. The Daisy Goodwin looks very interesting! I've read a Sheila Roberts and enjoyed it though there were a few aspects I didn't love so I luck forward to seeing your review. Looks like you got some great books and I'll keep my fingers crossed about the seeds! Have a great week!
