Sunday Post #1: The One Where I MAY Have Gone Overboard

12:13 PM

This is technically not the first time I've done a Sunday Post (hosted by Kimberly at Caffeinated Reviewer) but it has been SEVERAL years, and I only posted probably twice at most, and I didn't tag it as simply Sunday Post (I probably did it as !JESSICA DOES SUNDAY POST or something equally as inconvenient.

So, we're just pretending to start over here!

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted here @ Caffeinated Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.  See rules here: Sunday Post Meme.
I'm not ditching Monday Chitchat, even though I haven't posted with that in a few months. It just so happens that I prefer Sunday Post. I also have very little I want to gab about right now (at least, in the format of Monday Chitchat) so YAY. Hi, hello, etc.

Excited to get back into it on this tag! This week was pretty eventful in terms of book mail (and a few eARCs and free Kindle reads) and book buying. It marked the first week in ages that I was able to buy something and not worry about, well, everything that was happening in October-May.

Also, I went to an Ollie's Bargain Outlet for the first time and scored some serious deals, had a brief thrift store visit and lucked out at a couple of Little Free Library locations while dropping off some books I no longer needed. June has been a pretty good book month for me! This week, though, was the most active one.

Off the blog, I've been readying myself for Chicago's Pride Parade, and for some inexplicable reason I've been rewatching The Hills. I feel like my anxiety was so bad this spring and I'm just drained, so it was nice to get a little nostalgic and watch it.

The Identity Crisis Book Tag  

 The Devil in the White City, Graceling and Eeny Meeny were all found while thrifting. Price: $1.50. There's a thrift store near my parents house that has all of their books for just .50 cents. New, old, hardcover, leatherbound, paperback, ANY book they receive. Can you guess why it's my favourite? 

Three Wishes, Sweetbitter, Still Me and Hold Still were all from different Little Free Library locations. (Super excited to have a copy of Sweetbitter again, it's one of my favourite books and I lost my copy last year!) While Modern Lovers, The Blood of Olympus, The Sword of Summer and Percy Jackson's Greek Gods were all from Ollie's. I'm still shook that they were only around $15 TOTAL. If you're in need of any Rick Riordan books, they had quite a few there--and they had one of Sarah J. Maas' ACOTAR books, too. AND SO MUCH MORE. So, if you need classroom books, gifts or just want to do a bargain book haul, check them out. 

Ghosts of the Shadow Market, Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald (Screenplay) and The Last Life of Prince Alastor were purchased by me via money I've earned using Ibotta. The other books listed were provided by authors or publishers in exchange for reviews and/or blog tours.

The first three are eARCs that I've downloaded recently and the other three were freebies for Kindle. I'm not sure when I'll get to those, considering the amount of books I've accumulated the last two or so weeks and the fact that ARCs are my top priority right now but. I wasn't a fan of the previous book in A Throne for Sisters (it just wasn't my cup of tea) but I wanted to see if the sequel improved upon what was laid out in book one! 

Dang, that was more than I thought! In my defense, I'm a fast reader and I hadn't bought any books for myself in a few months.
