The Sunday Post #43 - 3rd April 2016

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Kimba at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

I am going to recap my week, ramble about books and give you an idea of what I have coming up plus anything else newsworthy!

Hello everyone, have you had a good week?

It's April, did you get caught out by any April fools? 

This one is from the Scottish Sun newspaper!

THRILL-seeking drivers will be able to hurtle along the new Forth bridge on a special ‘rollercoaster lane’, we can reveal.

The £1.3billion Queensferry Crossing is to feature an optional fun route under ambitious plans designed to bring in toll cash.

If only!!!!

I am officially sick of chocolate, Easter is far too crazy, eggs are taking over my house, normal chocolate ones, ones shaped like the castle from Frozen, I mean it isn't even a proper egg!

Not much exciting to report this week, the most exciting thing to happen was...well nothing exciting it was the perfect boring normal week, full of word, kid wrangling and chocolate eating.

Me and the other half watched San Andreas and I still can't decide it it was really terrible or another film to add to my epic disaster film list which includes Armageddon and Independence Day, my gut says it was terrible, it did look good, well as good as the Golden Gate bridge collapsing along with several billion dollars worth of Californian real estate plus I always wanted to go to the Hoover Dam -  not after seeing this film!

Finally reviewed Golden Son, still not finished Morning Star but I am getting there!

Have a good week everybody!



I have received physical and e-copies of some fab books this week, thank you to all the publishers for sending them! Also, some of them are my own purchases, the pics link to Goodreads for you to find out more!



Let me know if you have read any of them!

Happy Sunday!

  1. OMG I am so sick of chocolate too!!! We got so much from Easter and I keep eating it all even though I know I need to stop!!! Have a great week!

  2. Love that bridge! And the sign too. :) I love that "Wheee" part!

    Nice pick ups this week. I got some graphic novels too, hope yours is good. And of course Star Wars- hope you like it when you see it. I'm not getting the blu-ray although I know a lot of people are waiting for it. :)

    1. That bridge would be amazing if they built it but to be honest a lot of our roads are crazy curvy anyway!

  3. Ha! Love that meme... I'm not fond of lending my books either!

    I've been seeing that Joe Hill book about a bit and it sounds like you love it so I might have to read it. (Think I saw it on NetGalley!)

    I was sick of chocolate after Easter. But sadly that only lasted a day or two as I have a memory like a goldfish. :-)

  4. Bahaha I love the Funnies meme! I do lend out my books, but only to people I trust soooo, definitely relatable hehe.

    I did get fooled on April Fool' an icecream business in Sydney! Eek. Hope you have a lovely week Heather xx

    1. April Fools Day is a day I hate with a passion in case I get caught!!

  5. I love disaster films! I'm keen to see San Andreas, amongst many, but I still haven't got round to watching 2012 yet! I can't seem to get motivated to do anything at night except read! I MUST watch something tonight!

    1. I know you really have to be in the mood!! I go through phases of watching tv and then like tonight watching the god awful Geordie Shore!

  6. Wow, that is huge for The Fireman! Is it SciFi? I only got fooled (almost) by a science page I follow on Facebook that said a colony of flying penguins had been discovered in Antarctica. The photo looked so real, ha ha. Then I realized what day it was before I clicked through to the article, but they had me for almost a minute. Then I had the opposite happen. On i09 there was an article that Disney had optioned the Glass Magician trilogy for a movie series. I was given the first two books to review and the writing was so bad in the first one, I never read the second one and that seemed to be the sentiment of most of the bloggers I know who read them. Anyway, I thought that was an April Fools joke until I saw it was dated the day before. Lol. That roller coaster road idea might not be too bad! Have a wonderful week. :)

    1. No I think the Glass Magician is a thing, I actually enjoyed the first book then got fed up with the second. The Fireman was immense, I am so happy I got the chance to read it which you should if you get the chance!

  7. Company Town looks interesting. I love disaster films, but haven't checked out SA yet. I think everyone is done with chocolate eggs! Hope your week is smashing!

  8. I just recently found out that Joe Hill is Stephen King's son. I bought NOS4A2 a while back but have yet to read it. Enjoy!

    1. Yep I didn't know either, I suppose he wants to be an author in his own right.

  9. The Fireman looks really good. Also, I trust your taste so if you say it is 5 stars, I MUST read it immediately.
    I am not really into action movies. I didn't like San Andreas, except for The Rock being in it. I could watch it on mute. He is such a fine specimen of male. (that's so sexist, i can't help it!)
    As far as that meme goes, people don't even ask me. If I lend out a book, it is because I was planning on getting rid of it. I don't like how some people treat their books.

  10. Great update! I can’t wait to get the Star Wars movie!

  11. I didn't see a lot of april fools jokes, although some can be fun. I saw an april fools blog post on a blogger their blog and our supermarket did a joke about a popular type of ice cream going out of stock and eventually discounted it on april 1. That april's fools about the rollercoaster lane looks great, lol!
    I really enjoyed A Scone to Die for! I hope you'll enjoy it as well! Have a great week!

  12. The roller coaster bridge looks so fun! That's a great April Fool's joke! The Serenity Graphic Novel is calling my name. We did a big rewatch over Christmas and I loved it just as much if not more. I'll have to look for that one!

  13. My family doesn't really get a lot of candy, so I'm definitely not sick of chocolate; I just know I shouldn't eat much of it! haha



  14. I was pretty good at staying away from chocolate this Easter, I just didn't feel like eating any. And that's a good thing :)
    Your new books look good, I haven't heard of any of them before, but I sure hope you'll enjoy them.
    The April's fool thing is funny! I didn't catch any here... I guess news being kind of crazy all the time has made me question everything...
    Have a wonderful week and happy reading!

  15. Haha, I love the quote at the end. I don't lend books either.

    It sounds like you had a very chocolate-filled Easter. I'm actually not a huge chocolate fan. I like it on fruits and in ice cream or whatever, but not usually plain. Well, unless it's dark chocolate lol.

    Your new books look interesting, and I love the cover of Company Town! Have a great week :-)

    1. I wish I hated chocolate, I despise white chocolate but the rest it calls to me!!

  16. I commented on Sunday using my IPOD but apparently it did not go through. (sobs)
    Having a non exciting week once in a while can be quite refreshing.
