The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves–August 4th Edition

 

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba of The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.  This is a weekly meme where we can share news of the week and highlight new books received.

August?? It’s already AUGUST??  Another year is zipping by.  Pretty soon we’ll be complaining about the freezing temps and ice and snow. Ugh.

Big excitement for the week? Took the puppers to Sonic for their first hot dog with cheese.  They split one.  And shared a small order of tater tots with me.  The real reason for the visit? I wanted to try their Strawberry Banana Split Molten Lava Cake.  Verdict – meh.  The cake was dry, and when I think of molten lava, I expect there to be lots of melted fudge/chocolate.  There was a tiny bit on the bottom of the container.  While I won’t get that again, it’s fun to load up the puppies and drag Dean out for a treat every now and again, but I will try something else next trip.  Maybe a breakfast burrito?  At the rate we go, I have a couple months to think about it.  What’s your favorite menu item from Sonic?

BTW, Dean did have praise for his Peanut Butter Fudge Shake.  Lots of peanut butter and lots of fudge.

    I’ve been looking a Doll Bones but it looks creepy even for a kids book, still may check it out though. I got Countdown too, and I read Witchstruck a few weeks back and really enjoyed it :)

    I haven’t been to Sonic in forever! I can’t even remember what they have. Hmmm…maybe it’s time to load up the devildogs and go for some chow. Wow. Doll Bones looks creepy and since it’s by Holly Black I’ll need to add that to the TBR! Have a great week!

    Ooo, ooo, ooo – I just got The Sum of All Kisses, and I’m so excited. I love JQ! Do you have a favorite of hers? Although I love the Bridgerton series, my favorite is probably How to Marry a Marquis. It’s the one I’ve read the most.

    Anyway, enjoy your goodies, and happy reading :)
