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.
I’m back from my adventures in Asia and Australia (though I will admit I wouldn’t have mind staying a little longer on vacation haha). So the next few weeks I’m going to try to get back to some sort of normal blogging hopefully! And I was thinking of doing a fun book/food series post (since this is Book Munchies!) of the books and food I read/ate on my travels if you guys interested (:
Hope everyone’s enjoying the nice weather! (My family told me it was snowing until the beginning May in Saskatchewan, while I was enjoying the gorgeous autumn weather in Australia muahaha. Came back at the right time for the spring sunshine ;))

Just getting back on the reading train (though I did read quick a lot on my crazy long layovers I kept getting, what I get for being cheap I guess haha) so a few from Netgalley.
(01) Spies and Prejudice by Talia Vance
Fields’ Rule #1: Don’t fall for the enemy.
Berry Fields is not looking for a boyfriend. She’s busy trailing cheaters and liars in her job as a private investigator, collecting evidence of the affairs she’s sure all men commit. And thanks to a pepper spray incident during an eighth grade game of spin the bottle, the guys at her school are not exactly lining up to date her, either.
So when arrogant—and gorgeous—Tanner Halston rolls into town and calls her “nothing amazing,” it’s no loss for Berry. She’ll forget him in no time. She’s more concerned with the questions surfacing about her mother’s death.
But why does Tanner seem to pop up everywhere in her investigation, always getting in her way? Is he trying to stop her from discovering the truth, or protecting her from an unknown threat? And why can’t Berry remember to hate him when he looks into her eyes?
As a huge fan of Pride and Prejudice and of espionage, I can’t wait to see the two collide in this book. My only fear is because I love Pride and Prejudice so much, there’s always that extremely high expectation when it comes to adaptions of it (and that slight feeling of always knowing nothing can really beat the original). Still, hoping for the best (:
(02) Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein
While flying an Allied fighter plane from Paris to England, American ATA pilot and amateur poet, Rose Justice, is captured by the Nazis and sent to Ravensbrück, the notorious women’s concentration camp. Trapped in horrific circumstances, Rose finds hope in the impossible through the loyalty, bravery and friendship of her fellow prisoners. But will that be enough to endure the fate that’s in store for her?
Elizabeth Wein, author of the critically-acclaimed and best-selling Code Name Verity, delivers another stunning WWII thriller. The unforgettable story of Rose Justice is forged from heart-wrenching courage, resolve, and the slim, bright chance of survival.
I finally got around to reading Code Name Verity on my trip and loved it, so there was no way I was passing up this lovely companion book. More espionage, more courage, more sacrifice, more heartbreak, I’ll take it all please.
