The Sunday Post #77 (6.28.15)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. I'm also going to link this up with Sheila's It's Monday post over at Book Journey.  
 

I can't believe that this is the last Sunday in June...this year is flying by!!! It's been rather rainy this weekend, which was fine with me as it allowed me to get caught up on some reading and it was good for the grass and flowers. My dad came down last Monday and brought sore more day lilies with him that I still need to plant - I don't exactly have a green thumb when it comes to gardening, so hopefully I can get them transplanted without killing them. Right now, they are just sitting in tubs by the back door. I just need to decide where I want to put them...

Have a great week everyone!!!

  1. Day lilies are pretty hardy so hopefully the transplanting will go well. There's so many varieties of them that I could just buy them all! You've got some interesting books coming this week. I'm looking forward to your Kate White and Tess Gerritson reviews and I'm so curious about The Liar, The Art Forger, and The Astronaut Wives Club. I hadn't see Grand Central before but I'll be checking that out as well. Have a great week!

  2. I'm hopeless with gardening, I like a plant that will look after itself!

  6. Hope you enjoying Nora Roberts, but boy is she a hard author to catch up on. But all the books I have read from her have been just great.

  7. Day lilies are so pretty and pretty hardy. I have to laugh as I go through all the Sunday Posts almost all of us commented on how fast time is going..and then some were talking about how far till Christmas..eek gads!

  8. A bit of summer rain is always welcome for a garden. I think I might listen to The Liar next, I'll have to listen to a book from my library as out of credits at Audible at the moment.
    I have wondered what Beautiful Ruins would be like, will wait to see what you think and if you like it I'll give it a go.

  9. My book club read Beautiful Ruins. I enjoyed it but no one else really did. I'll be curious to see what you think of it. Enjoy your week, and good luck with the daylilies!

  12. Good luck with the planting. I came back from my brief trip to find that my brother had trimmed all the shrubbery. It looks much more tamed around here now. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  13. I live in the south and Day Lilies are perfect. They are quite hardy and I need that in the scorching heat. Rained here this weekend too. Now it's sticky! LOL
