sunday post #24

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Caffeinated Reviewer. It's a chance to recap posts from the past week and tease upcoming content, as well as share new books, reading challenge progress, and anything else you've come across in the last seven days.

The movies at the film festival last weekend may have been a little disappointing, but I made up for it this week with an early screening of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom! I absolutely loved this sequel, much more than the first in the "rebooted" Jurassic Park series. Granted, I don't go to these types of movies expecting grand, dramatic Oscar material; it did deliver on the blockbuster attitude and plethora of dinosaurs, though, so I'm already looking forward to catching another screening in a few weeks when the crowds have thinned.

On a related note, I was totally a "dinosaur kid" growing up, but best I can remember I loved all the different dinosaurs equally. Did y'all have a favorite dinosaur when you were younger?


My lack of self-restraint means I put my pressing TBR on pause to immediately read Wildcard. It. was. AMAZING. Marie Lu threw in some completely unexpected twists before delivering an ending that I think really suited Emika, Hideo, and the quandary created by his actions at the end of Warcross. I've already pre-ordered my copy for the release in September and, if you enjoyed the first book, I highly encourage you to do the same!

I also finished another of my most recently hauled ARCs (included in this week's Sunday Post a little further down, actually 😂)—Sea Witch by Sarah Henning. The concept was great, but as far as mermaid re-tellings I think I enjoyed To Kill A Kingdom a bit more.

Down the TBR Hole #21
Book Review: Acceptance by Jeff VanderMeer
State of the ARC #6


Another lovely little haul this week! I already mentioned Sea Witch by Sarah Henning, but I also have another late summer addition to my TBR in Heart of Thorns by Bree Barton. I've seen a mix of reviews already, so I'm quite curious about how this one will go for me. Daemon Voices by Philip Pullman has me particularly excited: I know readers and writers both sing the praises of Stephen King's On Writing, but it's Pullman who makes my shortlist of authors I want writing advice from! Another pair of fall releases—Broken Things and Blanca & Roja—also sail onto my TBR just in time for this week's State of the ARC catch-up—yay!

How was your week? Say hello in the comments and I hope y'all have a great week!
