Sundays in Bed With… #MyWeeklyWrapUp

We’re back with another Sundays in Bed With… meme! This meme dares to ask you what book has been in your bed this morning and is hosted by Midnight Book Girl. Come share what book you’ve been you’ve spent time curled up reading in bed with, or which book you wish you had time to read today!

I spent the majority of my Sunday in bed catching up on graphic novel ARCs and ticking them off my read list! Now I plan to spend the rest of my Sunday in bed reading The Forgotten Gift for a tour next week! This is a historical fiction that really sounds up my alley so I’m hoping to really enjoy it 😉

What would you do to protect the ones you love?

1861. George’s life changes forever the day he meets Lucy. She’s beautiful and charming, and he sees a future with her that his position as the second son in a wealthy family has never offered him. But when Lucy dies in a suspected poisoning days after rejecting George, he finds himself swept up into a murder investigation. George loved Lucy; he would never have harmed her. So who did?

Now. On the surface, Cassie is happy with her life: a secure job, good friends, and a loving family. When a mysterious gift in a long-forgotten will leads her to a dark secret in her family’s history she’s desperate to learn more. But the secrets in Cassie’s family aren’t all hidden in the past, and her research will soon lead her to a revelation much closer to home – and which will turn everything she knows on its head…

Discover a family’s darkest secrets today 

What are you currently reading?

First off, congratulations America! I know a lot of my friends and family are very pleased with how things have turned out, although the margin is devastatingly small (still don’t get how that’s possible after everything). But this was a great turn for the weekend and I think the majority of the world breathed a collective sigh of relief when the election was called 😅 Now, onwards and upwards, right?

Aside from that, not much really happened this weekend. I did leave the house for the first time in like… 2 months yesterday. We went to a mall to run personal errands and we got there for when the mall opened to avoid the crowds. It started to get a bit hectic by the time we left at noon and it was a relief to finally come home! It got me wondering how all this “isolation” will affect me once things go back to “normal”. I always got claustrophobic in crowds (even in malls) and I’m wondering how it’ll be in the future, now that I’m even more used to the lack of people around 🤣

Reading & Blogging Recap

I spent the majority of this weekend reading as much as possible and catching up on blog comments and blog hopping! I’m still quite behind but at this point I don’t think I’m going to be able to catch up on what I’ve missed so I’m just going to focus on doing better moving forward 😜 I’m happy that I managed to finish and review a couple of ARCs today and that has left me feeling a little more accomplished and productive! I feel like one thing that I need to get back to doing more on this blog is posting reviews — not just for tours and ARCs, but other books that I’ve read and haven’t finished reviewing! Will hopefully get back to that focus this month! On that note, here’s what I posted this week, ICYMI:

ARC Graphic Novel Review: The Grémillet Sisters by Giovanni Di Gregorio, Alessandro Barbucci
Let’s Talk Bookish: Romance as a Sub-plot
ARC Review: Mistletoe & Mr. Right by Sarah Morgenthaler

I hope you’ve all had a good weekend and that you have a great week ahead! Take care of yourselves and of each other, friends 🖤

  1. The Forgotten Gift sounds lovely. It’s been so, so long since I read any historical fiction.
    It really is surprising how small the margin was in election (although it seems to be growing as more ballots are counted). And it’s been exciting to see how people were celebrating not just here in the U.S. but all over the world.

    I know just what you mean about being uncomfortable in crowds now. I find the same thing. I went to a grocery store for the first time in ages last week and any time someone got close to me I cringed and just wanted to fold in on myself. I was relieved to leave and go home.

  2. That does sound like a book that is totally up your alley ❤ I can't wait to see what your thoughts are when your tour date comes up.

    And honestly Dini…. there are so many Americans that are still supportive of 45 (Trump) that I'm not surprised that the margin was that close. It's just a shame that it's that way, and how cruel people can be to others when they aren't directly affected by his hate and everything that he has done to the country. It's just difficult to see and see how people that we thought were our friends really weren't now that the truth comes out. But I am one of those friends that is SO GLAD that Biden won, so yay!
