Weekly Recap

Nereyda’s Recap:

Sorry I left you guys hanging with my potty story last week! About 3 weeks ago, my new laptop gave out on me so I had to send it back for repairs. Meanwhile, I had to use my old computer which is soooo slow. When I got my new laptop (about two months ago) I put my old computer away since it didn’t really work anymore and I gave my desk to my mom since I mostly use my laptop in bed. Since I had nowhere to blog, I had to put my old computer on my sofa upstairs and use a potty to sit on while I used it. The poor potty was so uncomfortable and I could only sit on it for so long before it started to hurt. I eventually ended up breaking it of how much I sat on it. But, I just got my laptop back last week so all is good again! Thanks to everyone who still stopped by to comment on my posts even when I didn’t comment these last few weeks, my behind could only take so much potty time!

I got an ARC of a Lauren Layne book Nick and I have been waiting for and I started reading it about 8pm and finished about 2am. It’s been so long since I was sucked in a book that bad that it made me want to stay up to read. The book was amazing, but now I have no more 2016 books I want to look forward to. Hope everyone had a great week!

What I Read:

    To Love and to Cherish by Lauren Layne Bound by Blood and Sand by Becky Allen Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills Still Life with Tornado by A.S. King Someone like You by Lauren Layne

Most of these were really good!

What I’m Reading/Listening:

 Nemesis (Nemesis #1) Still Star-Crossed
I’m having a hard time getting into Nemesis, but it could be a book hangover side effect. 

e-ARC’s Received for Review:

Someone like You by Lauren Layne Accidentally on Purpose (Heartbreaker Bay, #3)

Gotta love those Harper uploads 🙂

Audiobooks Received for Review:

 The Sun Is Also a Star Glitter

Sooooo freaking excited for both of these!!

Nick’s Weekly Recap:

Hello everyone!

How are you all doing? Splendid I hope! Thanks to everyone who asked how I was after the 5 shots of vaccination last week. I fell sick the next day, but all is good now. This week was a hectic week for me again, even more than usual because I had lots of stuff due for school. I’m not someone who get stressed easily, but this week was a little stressful for me. I had a really hard time sleeping too which didn’t help. I was able to sleep in on Friday though and I decided to take a break from all things school.

Besides that, Nereyda and I were lucky enough to be able to read a book that we’ve been dying for since almost 2 years now. It was Lauren Layne’s Someone Like You. We both immediately jumped into the book. She was able to stay up until 2 am to read it while I woke up at 3 am and read it. I haven’t felt so so in love with a book in such a long time, so it was great. Though, I was exhausted during the day since I went from 8 am to 6 pm with only an hour break in between. Yikes! My eyeballs were about to fall off! It was worth it though! 🙂

Here’s what else I read this week:

What I Read:

Rook While the Duke Was Sleeping (The Rogue Files, #1) His Best Mistake (Shillings Agency, #6) How to Keep a Boy from Kissing You Someone like You (Oxford, #3)
With the exception of While the Duke Was Sleeping, I really enjoyed these books. Rook was really good, especially and I thought How to Keep a Boy From Kissing You was so funny and shippy!

What I’m Currently Reading:

The Untouchable Earl (Fallen Ladies, #2) Froi of the Exiles (Lumatere Chronicles, #2)

I’m enjoying The Untouchable Earl quite a bit. It’s an interesting concept for a romance novel because the hero can’t be touched without experiencing pain.
Froi of the Exiles is LONG, you guys. I don’t know when I’ll finish it. It’s very enjoyable though.

 Book Haul:

Someone like You (Oxford, #3) Trophy Wife The Young Wives Club

  • Nereyda, tell me — did you like Bound by Blood and Sand?? I’m dying to know! I loved it, and This Adventure Ends. I’ve read all of your library haul (which is crazy, honestly. When did I have the time to read all of those?!). The Forgetting was my favorite. 😉

    Nick, I’ve noted what you said about the Jordan HR… I’m still going to read it of course, but I already had low expectations (loved book one, hated book two). I so want this one to be good because the cover features a purple dress (I love purple). 😀 I’m glad you loved Rook! Second favorite Cameron book. 😉

    I hope you both enjoy all of your new books! Have a lovely week. =)

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

    • I loved it Alyssa! It was so different and kind of brutal. Im trying to get Nick to read it. 🙂

  • Nereyda glad you got your computer back!! Nick hope you start sleeping better. Wow you guys look like you read and got some really great books!! Enjoy them and have a great week!!

    • Thanks Grace! Its always nice having somewhere to actually blog comfortably 🙂

  • Yay for having the fixed laptop! Hopefully it stays fixed and nothing goes wrong and your behind can rest xD
    I need to pick up Still Life with Tornado. I’m so behind on reading, it’s not even funny.
    I’ll be reading The Sun Is Also A Star this week!!! I can’t wait to start it!

    I’m glad you’re better, Nick! I seriously need to read the Oxford series. I need to organize myself and STOP REQUESTING BOOKS! Seriously, I’m going to try to not request more books so that I can focus on the arcs I have now and then read books for fun.

    Have a great week, ladies!
    Genesis @ Latte Nights Reviews

    • Ahhh, I say ignore the arcs every once in a while. They are overrated most of the time imo…
      The oxford series is so fun! Hope you fjnd some fun you reading time!

  • Yay! Glad you got your laptop fixed Nereyda! I know what it’s like having to sit on the toilet just to get some computer time in. It’s so uncomfortable!

    I hope you get better soon, Nick!

    Here’s my Sunday Post!

    Catch you over @ Rabbit Ears Book Blog and check out my new book meme Book Photo Sundays!

    • I cant help but laugh at someone actually knowing what it felt to have to use a computer on a potty…so random!

  • The potty thing did make me lol

  • Charlie Anderson

    Nick, stress can definitely impact your sleep. When I am not utterly exhausted enough to fall asleep, I take a Unisom. I take the pill by 8 pm so the effects wear off by the time it’s time to get up and going, and it’s non-habit forming. I fall asleep within an hour and I stay asleep all night long, which is also something I struggle with. I don’t even wake up when Baby headbutts the bed and jumps on me to get under the covers. I tried the gel one and so did the man, but we found it did not last. We were waking up in the night, so we take the regular Unisom.

    Nereyda, I would be so sad without a desk! You are a better daughter than I to give up your desk. So glad your laptop came back! Mine died in January and I was only without for a few days waiting on the new one and it felt like forever.

    • I never used it anymore and she needed one 🙂
      I feel like Ive been dealing with computer issues all year, it definitely sucks being without one.

  • The Book Disciple

    I’m glad you both enjoyed the new Lauren Layne book!!
    Hope you both have a great week!!
    (PS-that potty picture from last week still makes me giggle!)

    • It was sooooo good! Im so glad to be done with that potty 😉

  • Okay. I really need to get on Lauren Layne’s backlist. Lots of praises for them! Well, I’m glad your laptop is back on commission again. It really is tough being disconnected. I hope you’ll have a great week, Nereyda!

    Nick!!! Have I mentioned how glad I am to see you back? 🙂 Although, I haven’t read much of your posts lately (I’m still catching up. Lol).

    Happy reading, ladies!

    • Yesssss! Add LL to the yop of your tbr, her books are so fun!

  • I missed part 1 of the potty story, it’s funny! Sorry you have to go through that. Props to you for soldiering on though.

    I need to meet LLayne, everyone is mad raving about her books I feel so ignorant!

    • We looooove Lauren Layne, hope you give her books a try soon!

  • Glad you got your laptop back Nereyda. I live in fear of mine dying. I look forward to reading your review of Bound by Blood and Sand, it sounds really interesting.

    Hope you are feeling better and get all caught up on school Nick.

    Sunday Summary #24

  • I’m reading To Love and To Cherish now, but I’ve got Someone Like You coming up. I can’t wait to get started on that one.

  • Ooo a new Lauren Layne book..I need to go check it out!! Yay for getting your laptop back Nereyda. I have a Asus that has worked well for me, but I am seriously considering a Macbook Pro since I can use Google etc. I hate, Windows 10…lol

    • My boyfriend gas had a mac for years and nothing has ever happened to it…I wish I liked Macs but I just cant get used to them. Hope you love the new LL!

  • Nereyda, I am glad to hear that you finally decided to get off the pot…. Ha ha. Your story made me laugh. Nick, I am glad you survived your shots. My kids had flu shots last week and they both ended up with colds right after, not sure it was related. We are all on the mend and fine now. Hope you have a great week.

    • Yessss for no more potty sitting! I think it’s pretty normal for some people to get sick after the flu shot, it used to happen to me sometimes too.

  • Ooh, you guys got the new Lauren Layne. Was Lincoln everything we hoped he would be? I’m so anxious for that one. Oh wait, you guys both loved it so woo hoo! I’m excited! You both had great reading weeks, book haul weeks and just overall great weeks.

    I’m glad to finally get the story about the computer on the couch and the potty chair. 🙂 Glad your laptop is all fixed up, Nereyda! I’m also glad that you’re feeling better Nick. I’m still trippin’ on how you had so many vaccinations done at once. Crazy!
