Sunday Post (#8)

Hello all. Well, as some of you know Sundays are always reserved for Sunday Post which is a meme created by lovely Kim @Caffeinated Book Reviews!

Last week we told you about the huge floods in our country, Serbia and Croatia. Things are getting a little bit better. People are cleaning everything and life returns back to normal where it is possible. The number of dead is not yet official but it's more than 20. But some areas are still under water. In the meantime we got a huge hot wave and temperatures are around 30 degrees Celsius these days. Let's just hope that at least diseases will bypass us. 
For our blog, things are as usual. We had some interesting reviews this week and of course we have more interesting things ready for the next one. 
  • The Break-Up Artist by Philip Siegel (review)
  • The Wonderful Death by Sarah J. Schmitt (second still reveal)
  • Legally Undead by Margo Bond Collins (promo)
  • Waiting on Wednesday (#97)
  • Biggest Flirts by Jennifer Echols
  • The Wonderful Death by Sarah J. Schmitt (trailer reveal)
  • Scion by Deb Hanarahan (review)

Until the next time,

  1. Oh my goodness! So sorry to hear about the flood! I hope everything returns to normal as soon as possible for you and that you're safe. :)

    I've heard a ton of good things about Get Even, so I'm really excited to see what you think.

    Thanks for sharing and happy reading! <3

  2. I have another online friend in Croatia. I should probably go check in on her. The news here has mentioned the flooding in Bosnia and Serbia, but I haven't heard a word about Croatia. (But I haven't seen the news in several days, so maybe they're talking about it now.) I did wonder about her, but I haven't been on the site we're on together in a while.

    Even in Paradise looks good, and I already have Get Even on my TBR.

    1. I really hope she is well. Yeah Croatia was the last one flooded. Lesser than other two but still many people had to evacuate. Thanks, Jenna :)

  3. Glad things are getting better, I really hope nothing bad happens and people don't get sick, that would be awful and something you never think about when you think of flooding but it really is a huge deal.
    *hugs*
    Congrats on all the great books again girls!

    Enjoy your reads!

  5. Even in Paradise and On The Edge both sound great :) Since Forever Ago looks amazing, too. I haven't heard of it before now, but I definitely want to pick up a copy. I hope everything gets better in your country!

  8. I enjoyed Diepen's The Vampire Stalker and was thinking about requesting On the Edge, but I held back as contemporary don't always work for me. Think I'll wait for more reviews to come in before deciding whether or not I'll read it. Can't wait to see what you think!

  10. Good to hear that the flood situation is getting a bit better. It has been really warm in Finland this week as well, which is too bad because I won't be going back until next week (I am from Finland, but I live in UK for university for most of the year).
    I need to come and check out your review of Biggest Flirts because I almost started to read it last night, but then wasn't sure whether I should spend time on it or not.

    Have a good week.

  12. Good luck with the flood recovery efforts. It can take some time to get everything back to normal. The area I live in is still recovering from the floods of 2008. Have a great week!

  23. Glad things are looking up for you, and I hope that none of your family is effected. Is the government providing some help?
    Oh, how do you get on with reading books if they are translated into Serbian? I can't read books translated in German (my mother tongue) any more if they had English original books. I keep finding 'faults' in the translations :)
    Have a great week and Happy Reading.

    1. Not as much as they should. I usually just leave them unread and pick up that book in English. Yeah there is always something that bothers me. Thanks :)

And Tanja, I'm so glad you're starting read Starcrossed trilogy! It is one of my fave Greek Mythology series, I hope you enjoy it :)

  29. Oh no! :( I'm glad everything's okay for you guys - we peeps in the Midwest have been pelted with rain and funny business from nature (not that it's unusual since that's typical weather for me in the spring).

    Hope you have a great week! :)

  30. How scary! I hope everything is okay for y'all and that diseases don't come with the mix of flood and warm weather. Sending healthy, safe, happy wishes your way!
