The Sunday Post #5

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer, Itโ€™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.

We got back from our trip not too long ago, and while I missed the family members and friends there, as well as the place where we grew up- I’m so glad to be back!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I really wish my grandparents would consider moving to live with us.

Since we watched what movies we could while we were there (we rarely go to the movies at home), I imagine it will be quite a while before we go to watch any others. Which reminds me, did anyone else see the trailer for Stephen King’s The Shining‘s sequel?? It’s called Doctor Sleep!!

Here’s the trailer!


Lately I’ve been in a (rather late) Spring Cleaning mood, so I’ve been going through my bookshelves and getting rid of quite a few of them- getting them ready for giveaways and donating them mostly.

That ought to make my TBR mountain go down at least a bit! Lol

Some that are leaving my house soon include:

An Ember In The Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

Wake by Amanda Hocking

Orleans by Sherri L. Smith

The Fault In Our Stars by John Green


And last week’s Sunday, I was so busy with Father’s Day I didn’t post! The plan had been for my family to wake up early and head to the beach for a morning picnic (my father’s favorite place), but some things happened and we ended up eating at a restaurant he picked and then renting some movies to watch together instead! โค

Hope you all had a great Father’s Day with your dads!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Have a lovely day!!

Thanks for reading!!

It seems my family mostly wants to watch the newest movies while on our trip, so that’s what we did again this week! ๐Ÿ™‚

Everyone enjoyed Pokรฉmon: Detective Pikachu, especially the guys, but while I didn’t love it I did find it rather cute and much better than I had expected!

Disney’s Aladdin was so funny and definitely a new favorite!! (Who knew Will Smith could sing that good??) Originally we hadn’t wanted to watch it, because we thought it would be a play- but spoiler- it wasn’t! It was like the live-action for Beauty and the Beast where they burst into song once in a while, but it was all old favorite songs (that were very hard not to sing along to in the movie theater)! I can’t picture the Genie as anyone but Will Smith now, he played the part perfectly!!

I re-watched some old favorite chick flicks, discovered I don’t like Sweet Orange tea, and ate my fill of no-bake chocolate oatmeal cookies!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Le Weekly Cafรฉ Trip #1

Every so often I visit a little cafรฉ, have a nice hot coffee and read a good book or I get some writing done of my own book! So here’s the chat about it!

This is a new meme I’m hoping to do on the blog every once in a while, to tell you about updates in reading goals and share the cafรฉ feeling atmosphere!!

๐“ฃ๐“ป๐”‚ ๐“ฝ๐“ฑ๐“ฎ ๐“”๐“ผ๐“น๐“ป๐“ฎ๐“ผ๐“ผ๐“ธ~

What do you like to drink when you go to a cafe? I usually get coffee, but tea is a second choice- and then I’m constantly trying new ones!

This week I cheated and went to a Starbucks near a town I was visiting, surprisingly though, it was a smaller coffee shop so it added a nice little touch to the cafรฉ atmosphere. ๐Ÿ™‚

My favorite drink at Starbucks is one of three options: a Caramel Frappucino, a Caramel Macchiato, or a White Chocolate Mocha! โค โค


Now when reading (or writing) at a cafรฉ, we all have different preferences.

People watching, for instance, is one either we don’t realize we’re doing or we know we’re doing it and that’s part of why we’re there. Such as when I’m writing, I’ll go to a cafรฉ and people watch.

Some of us are there to study for school- though I usually go to my Library’s study rooms because I typically need more quiet for school. But some of us need the noise to focus, I have a friend who has to listen to music for college homework.

And then the reading preferences are different for each of us too!

*Some of us will bring a large Harry Potter book and get totally immersed.

*Some of us bring a smaller book or ebook that doesn’t require a lot of your attention and focus.


I’m a moody book reader, so it varies for me. This week I took The Kindred Woods by Erin Forbes for a ride and got a bit farther in it!

”Behind her gentle character, the strength of armor was found.”

– Fire and Ice book 3: The Kindred Woods by Erin Forbes

Forbes’ writing has more of mystical and whimsical feel to it, so it’s definitely one that requires more focus as you read it. But I just love the beautiful quotes from it!!

”All proper libraries include a trace of everlasting magic.”

– Fire and Ice book 3: The Kindred Woods by Erin Forbes

This is the third book in the series that came out May 1st, and it’s great to jump back into a fantasy series. How long does it usually take for you to finish a series??

I seem to have two moods: Finish the whole series in a few days, or take more than a year to finish the series. There is no in-between.

What do you like to read when you go to a cafรฉ?? What’s your choice of drink when reading?

Have you heard of Erin Forbes’ debut series, Fire and Ice?

Thanks for reading!!

Of Dutch Apple Pie & Poetry Books!

Some of us love to read poetry, some of us hate it, and some of us just read it for school!
Literally everyone falls into one of those three options.


I personally love to read Poetry collections, but that’s because I found the right ones from the beginning that just connected with me right away- and I fell in love with the symbols and rhyming lyrics!

Though, I completely understand having not found the right parts of poetry that made you want to read it more, or just not liking it in general- it is art but with words.

”Poetry is made from great thinkers, not great makers of art ~ quote by moi.”

I personally love how poetry could be about anything- it could be telling the poet’s deepest darkest secret, but it’s told through a different kind of story and is more vague where you’re still thinking about it hours later. I love thought-provoking poems! โค

Edgar Allen Poe is my favorite poet that I suggest, though I will admit his writing may not be for everyone…the one I fell in love with first of his was Annabel Lee.

Here’s just a handful of some poetry collections:

Pillow Thoughts by Courtney Peppernell
Milk and Honey bu Rupi Kaur
The Poet of the Heart by LaNona Walker
The Sun and Her Flowers bu Rupi Kaur

What’s your favorite warm dessert to bake or to eat?? Is there something you like to add to it as your own special touch?

Dutch Apple Pie is not my favorite, but it is my mother’s so I’ve learned to add a couple things when I make one for her- that way she’s sure to love it! โค

Here’s a link to my favorite recipe for Dutch Apple Pie, by The Diary of a Real Housewife.


  • With apple pies, granny smith apples or honey-crisp apples do best. They hold their shape better when baking, and are tartly-sweet.
  • My personal favorite my grandma taught me: crush up graham crackers and sprinkle them on top right before baking! (Trust me, give it a nice crunch!) You also can even add nuts or a table spoon of ground cinnamon or apple spice blend as well. ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Best served with whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream on top! (My mother’s favorite is vanilla ice cream with chocolate syrup.)

*Extra Note: if you wrap pie in plastic wrap and foil, you can freeze it for up to 3 months!*

Do you like Poetry and/or Dutch Apple Pie??

What are some tips or tricks you use for baking a pie?

It’s been raining like crazy lately, but that’s okay because I love it!! Cozy weather + coffee = perfect for reading or writing! โค How was your weather been? Hope you’re all doing well!!

My trip is going great, and it’s been much-needed! Below I’ll share some pictures from the past few days ๐Ÿ™‚

My family and I ate at Arby’s, tried the Jamocha shakes (definitely suggest!) & then went to the movie theater. We watched Godzilla: King of the Monsters!

Le Jamocha Shakes!

My brother and I watched all of the Godzilla movies when we were younger (yes, even the ones that no one knows exists!), so needless to say we were super excited about the new Godzilla: King of Monsters movie! The first one in 2014 had been great, and definitely our favorite- but this one tops it! We were very pleased with it, and how the writers used the old legends and versions of the monsters as well.

Would you guys be interested in seeing a post about it??
