Addicted to Hamilton & a book haul

The Sunday post which created by Caffeinated Book Reviewer this is a post where we recap on the going on's on the blog the week previous and the week coming up as well as the awesome books we have received, bought or been gifted for review!

*If your just here for the book haul, scroll down!!

Hi! How has your week been? I survived my first week back at work after the holidays. I was so glad to get to the weekend. This week I only finished one book and I feel like am in a little reading slump but I'm trying to get myself out of it. Instead of reading on the way to work I have been listening to the Hamilton soundtrack and I am addicted. I know am late to the bandwagon but it's just so good. I love Lin-Manuel Miranda! I think my favourite songs are Right Hand Man, Satisfied and Who lives , who dies, who tells your story but I do love the whole thing.

So on the blog this week I only had two posts. I promised myself at the start of 2019 if I didn't feel like blogging I wouldn't and would when I did. This week was kinda of a bust but as I said I did get two posts up which you can check out!

*Royally Screwed (Royally #1) by Emma Chase (Adult Contemporary Romance) - This was a free download on Emma Chase's newsletter. I have wanted to read an Emma Chase book for a long time so I'm excited to pick up this one.

*Serious Moonlight by Jenn Bennett- (YA Contemporary Romance - Releases 16 May 2019 in the UK , Thanks to Simon and Schuster Children's UK & Netgalley for the e-arc) Note: I used the US cover for the photo as I prefer that to the UK one, the UK one will be used in my review) This is one of my most highly anticipated releases so I'm  excited to read it very soon.

*Kind by Lily Llewellyn- Thanks to Troubadour publishing limited - Matador & Netgalley - This was an auto download and am not even sure of the genre. It sounds like a romance but I have a feeling it's a thriller as well. I was intrigued by the cover and synopsis so I downloaded it and will see what I think. It's available now.

Let me know what books you got this week. Are you as addicted to Hamilton as me? Leave me a comment below


  1. Royally Screwed is high on my TBR list. I've had it for ages but just haven't read it! Hope you enjoy.

  2. I might be the only human on the planet who hasn’t seen/listened to Hamilton. I should probably jump on the bandwagon. Have a great week!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  3. Wow great haul!! Serious Moonlight is one of my most anticpated books this year. Happy reading!!!

  4. Those bookmarks are totally cute. I seriously love the Royally series by Emma Chase. I picked up the first book on a whim about a year ago and was instantly hooked. Then I inhaled the next two books. I'm so excited that a fourth has come out!

  5. Really wonderful book haul. I also got Royally Screwed and am excited to read it or maybe I'll listen in the Audible Romance pkg I'm trying. I also got Shattered Vows and that's what I'm reading now. Enjoy and have a great week! Anne - Books of My Heart

  6. It's never too late to join the bandwagon! For what it's worth, I feel like nearly everyone has seen the musical and here I am, not even close to seeing the musical (please tell me I'm not alone, LOL). Not pressuring yourself with blogging is a good goal to have! I'm trying to do the same thing, though in the case of weekly wrap-ups at the moment.

  7. I'd love to join the bandwagon too. I keep hearing about Hamilton and how amazing it's, but I'll never be close of seeing it - I live in a small European country. One should only blog when feels like. Blogging is a hobby and no one should feel pressured to write posts.

    I hope you enjoy all of your new books.

    Happy readings!;)
