The Sunday Post Meme (193)

 Hey everybody! I am participating in a book meme called the Sunday Post which is being hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer! The goal of this meme is to share news you have  on various books and things you’ve read or received and also talk about what is coming up for your blog! Book hauls can include library books, yard sale finds, arcs and bought books and you can share these finds with other book bloggers!



Hey everyone! It's been awhile since I last did a Sunday Post!  There was so much going on with me in the last few weeks that I ended up being far behind in my posts!  The reason why I haven't been doing Sunday Posts for awhile was because I got sick in the last few weeks.  I was having trouble breathing properly as I constantly kept yawning and I was having constant short breaths.  So, I went to the doctor a few weeks ago and they told that I might have sleep apnea.  So, I'm just waiting for the doctor to call back so I could perform a sleep study to see what they could do about it.  Hopefully, I can get through this soon!  On a more positive note, I'm making a goal for my blog to reach over 500 followers!  You can follow me either through blogger or Bloglovin' and once I reach 500 followers, I will make a special shout out post to everyone who has followed my blog over the years!  So, be on the lookout for that special post when we reach 500 followers for this blog!

One Word: SICK.






(HBO MAX)

* So, Tom and Jerry has once again returned to the big screen (a bit in a different way) and I have to say that I actually liked this movie!  Sure, I can understand the hate towards this film and I will admit that this isn't the best movie from the Tom and Jerry franchise, but this film got a few chuckles out of me and I loved Tom and Jerry themselves in this film!







(TRAILER)

* Wow!  I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the newest Mortal Kombat trailer!  I rarely played any Mortal Kombat games growing up, so I didn't know much about this franchise.  But, this trailer has me excited and I can't wait to watch this movie soon!






(HBO MAX)

* While the performances from Denzel Washington, Jared Leto and Rami Malek were pretty good and the premise about a detective and a sheriff trying to find a serial killer was interesting; the film was really slow and I found myself being bored with this film for the most part.






(HBO MAX)

* It was great seeing another Studio Ghibli film being released after all of these years!  While I liked the fact that this movie was in CGI and the premise about a young girl meeting up with a witch was interesting, this movie lacked the backstories of each character and I actually didn't care much for the characters themselves.  Not one of Studio Ghibli's best films.
                                                      





 

Do you often get sick?








*So, here are some good things that happened to me recently!


* Managed to binge watch on a lot of great movies!  It's nice to actually get to watch as many movies as you like, since I rarely have time to watch a lot of movies and I've managed to find a lot of interesting movies lately!

* Redoing my blog design!  I always have fun with redesigning my blog and I'm really loving the new style that I have for my blog!

* Slowly getting better through my sickness.  I was quite sick for the last few weeks, which was why I didn't blog often for the last few years.  But, I'm slowly starting to recover from my illness, so that's a plus for sure!

Waiting on Wednesday #201: A Trial of Sorcerers by Elise Kova and Sing Me Forgotten by Jessica S. Olson

Hello everyone! "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, that is hosted by Breaking the Spine and the purpose of this event is that we spotlight upcoming releases of books that we are excited for!  This will also tie into Wishful Ending's Can't Wait Wednesday post!










This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selections are:




    

A Trial of Sorcerers

By: Elise Kova

Expected Publication Date: March 4th, 2021

Buy on:   Amazon


Ice is in her blood.

Eighteen-year-old Waterrunner Eira Landan lives her life in the shadows — the shadow of her older brother, of her magic’s whispers, and of the person she accidentally killed. She’s the most unwanted apprentice in the Tower of Sorcerers until the day she decides to step out and compete for a spot in the Tournament of Five Kingdoms.

Pitted against the best sorcerers in the Empire, Eira fights to be one of four champions. Excelling in the trials has its rewards. She's invited to the royal court with the “Prince of the Tower,” discovers her rare talent for forbidden magic, and at midnight, Eira meets with a handsome elfin ambassador.

But, Eira soon learns, no reward is without risk. As she comes into the spotlight, so too do the skeletons of a past she hadn't even realized was haunting her.

Eira went into the trials ready for a fight. Ready to win. She wasn't ready for what it would cost her. No one expected the candidates might not make it out with their lives.

This is the first book in a young adult, epic fantasy that's a tale of competition, coming of age, distant lands, elemental magic, and romance. It's perfect for fans of the Legend of Korra, Truthwitch, and A Sorcery of Thorns.

Oooh!  I wonder what kind of secrets the main character has?  Definitely looking forward to this book!







Sing Me Forgotten

By: Jessica S. Olson

Expected Publication Date: March 9th, 2021

Buy on:  Amazon


Isda does not exist. At least not beyond the opulent walls of the opera house.

Cast into a well at birth for being one of the magical few who can manipulate memories when people sing, she was saved by Cyril, the opera house’s owner. Since that day, he has given her sanctuary from the murderous world outside. All he asks in return is that she use her power to keep ticket sales high—and that she stay out of sight. For if anyone discovers she survived, Isda and Cyril would pay with their lives.

But Isda breaks Cyril’s cardinal rule when she meets Emeric Rodin, a charming boy who throws her quiet, solitary life out of balance. His voice is unlike any she’s ever heard, but the real shock comes when she finds in his memories hints of a way to finally break free of her gilded prison.

Haunted by this possibility, Isda spends more and more time with Emeric, searching for answers in his music and his past. But the price of freedom is steeper than Isda could ever know. For even as she struggles with her growing feelings for Emeric, she learns that in order to take charge of her own destiny, she must become the monster the world tried to drown in the first place.


YAAASSS!  A fantasy book that deals with music!!!  Can't wait to check this book out!
