Sunday Post #29: Easter Already!?

by Aleen @ Lampshade Reader

Welcome back to the Sunday Post! Sit back, kick up your feet, and relax!


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

The eggs are dyed, the carrot cake cupcakes baked, almond cookies baked and already slowly dwindling, and I really can’t believe it’s Easter. Where does the time go?

I had a good reading week. I finished reading Dangerous Games by Tess Diamond and I really enjoyed it. Review to come next week. Even though I accepted a few more reviews for this month, I’m still ahead in fulfilling my May ARCs. I have two due the first week and I should find myself ahead on that front.

I’m actually taking a little break 🙂 And by little I mean a couple of days.

I ordered this book because this author is on my automatic buy list. It’s her latest in her The Sweetest Dark series. LOVE!

Hope you had a wonderful Easter, Aleen! The carrot cake cupcakes sound divine… and I don’t even care for sweets! 🙂 It’s such a good feeling to be on top of the ARC’s and whatever reviews are due. I request very, very few so it’s not like I have loads of deadlines but I still stay on top of it.

Sounds like a lovely Easter weekend. It sure snuck up on me this year. I’m behind on ARCS and won’t be getting any more until I get caught up. I also have lots of other books wanting reviews. It never ends, does it? And I love it. LOL

I am curious to read your thoughts on the Tess Diamond book. It sounds interesting and I have seen a few other posts about it, but I haven’t read anything by her. Enjoy your few days reading break. Sometimes thats so needed!
Have a great week!

Happy Easter! Sounds like you have all the necessary culinary treats for the occasion. 🙂 Hard to believe it’s Easter, kinda snuck up on me this year. Hope you have a good one.

I find that taking a little reading break helps sometimes, especially if I’m switching genres. Is genre shock a thing? I think I’ve had it before…


Happy Easter! My reading plans could have gone better, but I did get two down! So there’s that 🙂
Have a great week 🙂

Yum, I love carrot cake, and the cupcakes would make me feel less…greedy. Enjoy!
