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

The hot hot weather continues in the UK, so much so that I caved and bought a fan. I was ecstatic when it arrived! Finally I could get a good night’s sleep. So, I plugged it in fully expecting to blasted with some blissfully cool air. There I was sat down expecting the sweat on my brow to sweetly evaporate. Nothing. The bloody thing was faulty and didn’t work. 

On the bright side, I got my undercut redone and I have a fantastic new pattern cut in. I love it. I encourage anyone who is thinking about getting it done but isn’t sure to take the plunge.

 

LAST WEEK ON BLOG

 

We had a fantastic week here at Under the Covers and were churning out recommendations for you left, right and centre. If you subscribe to Kindle Unlimited check out my recommendations and if you are looking for some football/soccer (depending on UK/US!) then take a look at our World Cup Fever  recommendations. You can also see what I (Suzanne) am planning to read over the next few months in my Summer Season Schedule, although whether I read them all or not is another matter! We also had Sarah Morgan on the blog and Annabeth Albert shared an exclusive excerpt with us!

AROUND THE BLOGOSPHERE

Barnes & Noble: Romance Blog is talking about paranormal romance!  Although, the books they mention are really urban fantasy but we will let that one slide.  Click here to read their 4 reasons to give paranormal romance a try if you haven’t already.

Mel To The Any did a fun tag post looking at the Highest Rated books on her GoodReads TBR.  I definitely need to try this myself!  Check out her post here.

The NY Times is notorious for not writing good pieces about romance books, but I think they actually had something interesting to say in their Romance Novels Diversity post.   Click here to read it.

 

TOTALLY RANDOM

My mum made this unicorn for my baby niece. However, my dad loved it so much he’s decided it’s his. I can’t really blame him, Una the Unicorn looks pretty damn funky with my sunglasses sipping an ice cold can.

BOOKISH NEWS

Your unicorn is fantastic! I used to make amigurumi all the time. I had to stop, because my carpel tunnel is really bad, but I miss it so much. You have so many books up there for me to covet. Dr. Strange Beard, Fresh Catch, and Fight or Flight are all books I would love to have right now. Hope they are all amazing!

Ugh I can’t imagine being in a heat wave without AC. At least nearly everywhere here in the states has AC (except the school I teach at…yeah, No AC in that building and the days we are in school in August are pretty miserable).
Enjoy your books!

I’ve subscribed to this blog for years but rarely comment. mostly lurk. I’m working on more commenting now with the Sunday posts. You’ve got a great book haul. I’m excited for the newest Penny Reid book and The Accidentals. I am currently reading Borrowed Souls and purchased Rogue Souls. Anne – Books of My Heart

Your under cut is awesome! I let mine grow back out years ago but this makes me want to cut it again. Also, I am super excited about Gabriel’s Inferno trilogy being turned into movies! That just made my day. I love those books.

Oh no, sorry the fan didn’t work! But your undercut is awesome! I love the idea of those kinds of haircuts, but I don’t have thick enough hair to pull it off. My hair would just end up looking really thin and straggly. Ahaha I love that your dad kept the unicorn XD Have a great week!

Kindle Unlimited is my best friend at the moment! I’m currently binge reading the Witch Bite series on it. 🙂
I’m also in the UK and I’m so tired of the heat already… I’m definitely an autumn girl!
