Sunday Post (19) / In My Mailbox (23)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Hello~

This week I got a little behind with my posts because I picked up some extra hours at work (which is nice, because extra money!) but thankfully Kim helped picked up my slack haha. Hopefully next week will be more organized. Summer days has been much nicer with less rain and more sunshine! So that’s a perk. Will be needing to find some nice summer reads soon (:

In My Mailbox 2

In My Mailbox post! Originally hosted by The Story Siren & now hosted by The Mod Podge Bookshelf, In My Mailbox is a chance to showcase new books, ones checked out from the library, bought, won or received for review.

I finally made it to the library this week, but didn’t find anything that really caught my eye ): I did snag one book but not sure if I’ll actually read it. oh well. Oh and one from Netgalley too.
Geek Girls don't Date Dukes - Gina Lamm(01) Geek Girls Don’t Date Dukes by Gina Lamm

Leah Ramsey has always loved historical romance novels and dressing in period costumes. So when she has a chance to time travel and experience the history for herself, she jumps at it—figuring it can’t be too hard to catch the eye of a duke. After all, it happens all the time in her novels.

Avery Russell, valet and prize pugilist, reluctantly helps Leah gain a position in the Duke of Granville’s household . . . as a maid.

Domestic servitude wasn’t exactly what she had in mind, but she’s determined to win her happily ever after. Even if the hero isn’t exactly who she’s expecting.

This is the second book by Gina Lamm in the Geek Girls series, the first was Geek Girl and the Scandalous Earl (my review) which was a cute read. This one also sounds adorable so I do have high hopes (especially since it sounds like the valet will get the girl and here’s a fun time travel shenanigans!)

Peter Pan in Scarlet - Geraldine McCaughrean(02) Peter Pan in Scarlet by Geraldine McCaughrean

Nightmares are leaking out of Neverland making time start to move, and, in order to save Peter Pan’s life, Wendy and the Lost Boys must find a way to stop it.
The first-ever authorized sequel to J. M. Barrie’s Peter Pan!

In August 2004 the Special Trustees of Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital, who hold the copyright in Peter Pan, launched a worldwide search for a writer to create a sequel to J. M. Barrie’s timeless masterpiece. Renowned and multi award-winning English author Geraldine McCaughrean won the honor to write this official sequel, Peter Pan in Scarlet. Illustrated by Scott M. Fischer and set in the 1930s, Peter Pan in Scarlet takes readers flying back to Neverland in an adventure filled with tension, danger, and swashbuckling derring-do!

I’m not sure how I feel about this sequel, I think I just grabbed it from the library because really wanted to just revisit Peter Pan. Maybe I’ll just go back to JM Barrie’s original :/
