Sunday Wrap-Up #50

Sunday Wrap-Up is all about sharing the books and book related items that I’ve picked up recently. I also recap what went on last week and let you in on what’s coming up. I link up my post to Sunday Post, and Stacking the Shelves.

 

Last week on BSA:
The Reaping by Shirley Anne Edwards [Excerpt & Giveaway]
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany, Jack Thorne [Review]
Silencing the Seam by Kathleen Groger [Excerpt & Giveaway]

 

Next week on BSA:
Songs of Seraphina by [Excerpt & Giveaway]
Soulfinder by Jacinta Maree [Excerpt & Giveaway]
Ruled by Elle Kennedy [Review]

 

So, I found out that one of my all-time favorite Star Wars characters was made into a Funko Pop! So, I called around and was able to locate one. Which, was my first Pop! figure ever. Then I went back in and grabbed the Storm because, well, she’s my favorite Marvel character and I just had to have her. Now I see why no one ever seems to have just one Pop! figure. I also attended a book signing for Ahsoka the other week. It was awesome! Last night the Mr. and I had a mini Harry Potter marathon where I made a bunch of snacks and tried my hand at making homemade butterbeer. I have never had butterbeer before and decided to give it a try. Oh my goodness, it’s amazing! I went with a recipe that was less like the one that is at the amusement park since they seem to use cream soda as the base and instead went with a less sweet version (which is the description of butterbeer) and used club soda as the base. It was amazing. I may have downed my who glass in about 5 minutes. It was THAT good.

I will more than likely be pretty quiet on social media this coming week/weekend. My friend and her boyfriend are coming out from NY to visit. I will have posts scheduled to go live throughout the duration of their stay but I might not be around to chat or comment on all my favorite blogs. So, if you don’t hear from me that will be why. 😉

In the latest novel in the series with the “sexiest, baddest, hottest”* outlaws around, one woman must choose between the two men who want to claim her…

…Or does she?

Despite his magnetic personality, Rylan can’t seem to seduce Reese, the deadly leader of their town of outlaws. Winning her over is a welcome challenge, but her indifference isn’t the only thing standing in his way. If he wants Reese, Rylan must also win over Sloan, her stoic protector…

Sloan has always loved Reese, but their painful past has stolen his chances of a future with her. Rylan’s interest in Reese only intensifies the tension—until Sloan begins to wonder if the reckless man might be the one person who can bridge the distance…

The last time Reese fell for the wrong man, she had no choice but to kill him. Now, she desperately wants to take what both Rylan and Sloan are offering. But if she makes the wrong call again, she risks losing them both.

Are you just going to stand there and watch?

Eleanor Briggs just can’t help herself. Every night, the sight of the man in the high-rise across the street is driving her wild. She longs to feel his touch up close and personal. To win him over, she’ll need to shake off her wallflower sensibilities and become the seductress she never imagined she could be. The only trouble will be finding the perfect way to meet him…

Or are you going to join in?

Sex is easy for millionaire entrepreneur Trey Riordan. Finding something of substance, however, seems impossible. That is until a simple night of reading at a local coffee shop becomes something far steamier when a beautiful brunette comes by and leaves a note telling him to look out his bedroom window at midnight. But when the time comes, neither of them will be truly ready for what follows…

8 Thoughts on “Sunday Wrap-Up #50

  1. Oooo! I was about to ask, which Star Wars Funko?! But I see it there – very cool! I want to get a BB-8 Funko. 😀 I loved Looking Inside! It was the first Kery book I’d read, and I really liked it. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Have a fabulous week. 🙂

    Check out my STS post!

  2. That book signing looks awesome! And I’ve recently discovered the Star Wars Funko’s myself (I know, where have I been??) and the Ahsoka one is very cool. I want the Jyn Erse one even though the movie hasn’t come out yet. And the Mystique one might be calling me since she’s one of my favorite Marvel villains…

  3. Enjoy your new books. Looks like you got some good ones. I still need to read the Cursed Child. Have a great week!

  4. So many great books on your list! I’m going to add On Broken Wings to my list. Hope you have a great week!

  5. LOL, I have one Funko Pop it is Dean Winchester from Supernatural. I have not bought myself any although I do occasionally drool over the Doctor Who ones. I have been enjoying Wild Aces series by Cleeton. Hope your week is amazing.

  6. I don’t collect the Funko Pops but even so it’s impossible not to know what they are because they are sooo hugely popular! Congrats on getting your first… and second. LOL And the signing looked like it was fun. I just love book events!

    I love that you made butterbeer!! 🙂 I’ve yet to try it, either. I haven’t gone back to Disney since the HP World opened up. Sounds like your version was delicious!

    Hope you have a great visit with your friend this week!

  7. Thanks for visiting my Sunday Post. I am adding you to my RSS Reader and following you on Twitter.

    When I was young, a small fast food place near my house had butterscotch soda pop and I loved it. I haven’t tried butterbeer yet, but it sounds like I should.

  8. Sounds like a pretty good time on all fronts! Hope you have fun with your friends!
