This has been a crazy week. I hope yours was better. I am behind on writing reviews but I have been reading/listening to escape the craziness. Friday kicked off the first day of summer and hopefully we will see some sun this week. The past week has been mostly rain and thunderstorms. Last night the sky was lit with lightning and rolling thundering. Stay Caffeinated!

    We have muggy, grey skies today. During our wet winter we never really had lightning and thunderstorms. It’s nice to have a break from the hot sun today.

    The Good Omens thing made me laugh too, but I haven’t seen the responses on Twitter—I’ll have to go check those out.

    Oh, and I just noticed that your notification at the top of the blog says, “This site uses cookies. They go great with coffee!” So funny!!!

    Last week was a tough week for sure in the Jolley household. My eldest left for his two year mission to Columbia. I know he’ll do awesome, but it’s so hard to say goodbye. Have a great week!

  4. Lindy@ A Bookish Escape

    I’m glad you had an amazing reading week! Crossing my fingers that you get more sun! The Bromance Book Club looks so good! I really want to read it! Happy Reading Kim!

  5. Barbara Strickland

    Cold here but hoping to move further north in the next month or so. Love scarves, gloves and winter coats until the cold hits and I think, sun come back.❤

  6. Maureen @ Maureen's Books

    Sorry to hear you’ve had a crazy week Kimberly. I hope this one is better. Here the weather has been pretty good.. Only two more days of my vacation left so I’m going to enjoy it as much as I can. Happy reading!

  7. Lorna

    That’s the thing with vacations, there’s so much that has to be done when you get back. It’s rained a lot here lately as well. We have a week of in the nineties coming up after tomorrow. I’m not a fan! Here’s to less craziness this week!

  8. Anne

    WE haven’t had as much rain but instead the heat.. 90s for this week. I hope I can manage it with all the moving over the next month. I can’t comment on some of your posts because I haven’t read the books yet, so I won’t until I have. There are about 5 reviews of the Lemon Sisters for me to read but I’m listening to it now. Have a great and dry week!

  9. Tanya @ Girl Plus Books

    We’ve had plenty of rain here, too, this week but I don’t mind at all. We need the rain and O just love a good thunderstorm. I’m super excited for The Bromance Book Club and hope to start it soon.

    Woo! I just added The Bromance Book Club to my TBR the other day and I’m so excited to get to my eARC. It sounds so fun! And oh gosh, I think I’ve been living under a rock so I have NO idea what this Good Omens thing is (like, I know the book and the show, I mean, I don’t know the recent drama or whatever?) so I’m like scratching my head in confusion. Here’s to hoping this week is less crazy for you!!!

    Hi!!! I’m sorry you had a crazy week – booooo!!! But I LOVE your meme/comic!! So funny!!!

    Hey… I’m counting linkups and right now you have 47… but then I see comments at 23. Things that make you go hmmmmm…. 🙁

  12. Samantha

    Sorry you had a crazy week! Hopefully this week is calm! That banter on twitter between Netflix and Prime was GOLD! And the idea that people were trying to ban something on the wrong network…hilarious!

    Rolling thunder sounds great. Hope you have some great umbrellas, I’ve seen some pretty cool ones used in Japan.

  14. Michelle @Because Reading

    Netflix twitter and Instagram is hilarious. I love when they all get together and joke on each other. Wendys does that too. I think it’s great that they have such hilarious people running their social media pages.

    This week was crazy for me too but I wasn’t able to get a lot of reading done. The kids are almost done with school and then I can relax since no crazy projects, lunches or homework to deal with.

    I hope this week is awesome for you Kim! Happy Reading! xx

  15. sjhigbee

    Hm… we’ve just celebrated the summer solstice, which in theory means we are halfway through, however in practice – the hottest part of summer generally is yet to come. I hope the downpours and thunderstorms soon melt away, Kimberly!

  16. Lillian @ Mom with a Reading Problem

    Happy Summer 😀 I’m hoping for a drier week but not holding my breath. It was crazy for us too. I’ve read good, but I’m behind on reviews too. Maybe we can catch up this week? I haven’t watched Good Omens yet (mainly because I’d like to read the book first) but the whole petition and the joking between Netflix and Amazon has me wanting to watch it. 😆 Hope you have a great week!

    I am loving the summer weather and am happy if the thunderstorms hit during the night. I am looking forward to some summer family fun! Have a great week!!

  18. Mandy

    I’m not a fan of busy weeks I feel like I spend the whole time rushing. However, I do find that I get so much more done when I’m constantly running. I wish we had the thunderstorms, it’s been hot during the day and going to only be hotter.

  19. Lola

    We’ve had quite some sunny days here already. I hope you get some sunny days there soon too. And that’s nice you’ve been reading and listening a lot, let’s hope you can get caught up on the reviews soon. Have as great week!

  20. Stormi Johnson

    Sorry to hear you had a crazy week but thank goodness for books or escapism! I just heard something about the petition about Good Omens yesterday but haven’t really read anything. It’s not something I am interested in watching or reading but wouldn’t ban it. Why can’t people just not watch it if it offends them?

    Have a great week and happy reading!

    I hope the upcoming week is less crazy for you and that you have some good weather. I’m so excited to see you got The Bromance Book Club. I can’t wait to hear what you think of it!

  22. Melanie Simmons

    Rain, so much rain. Just when you think the rain has stopped for a few days, we get inches. So crazy. I’m behind on writing reviews and visiting other blogs. And, well reading. I’ve got three eARCs waiting on me (which almost never happens) and I just can’t get into reading right now. Listening to a ton of audiobooks though. Have a great week.

  23. Vi @Inkvotary

    Well, unlike you I was able to write and schedule some reviews and other posts *smile*. But our weather was kind of the same during the past week. One day warm and bright sun, during the night rain and lightning. The next day we had bad storms and some flooding. It is crazy! And the following week we are expecting around 103 degrees. Insane.

    Best wishes

    OMG Kimberly I hope next week calms down for you! We also had thuderstorms here and next week is set to be stuffy with temperature above 95°F!!!

  25. Nicci @ Sunny Buzzy Books

    We are due to have some thunderstorms too. We’ve had such a lovely hot week, I don’t think I’d mind them as long as they come after Monday when my broken guttering gets fixed!

    I’m also behind on reviews… Actually, I’m falling behind on everything but I’ll catch up eventually!

    Have a good week.

    It’s been raining here too. I watched a few episodes of the Good Omen on Amazon Prime. I mean it’s okay but I got bored with it tbh. It couldn’t have been less originally thought out. C’mon the antichrist? I got bored with those two trying to find the 11-year-old. I hope you have a good weekend regardless 🙂 *sending sunshiny thoughts your way*

  27. Lindsi

    I can’t wait to read your thoughts on The Bromance Book Club! I haven’t seen any other reviews for it yet, but the synopsis sounds fun! We’ve been having terrible thunderstorms, too. I really hate when my phone wakes me up screaming, “TORNADO WARNING!” I hope sunshine finds you soon!

    I love nothing else more than a thunderstorm, food, and books. Imagine being buried under my stuff animals and blankets with amazing snacks and an AMAZING book, listening to the rain outside. That to me is the definition of happiness. I hope you enjoyed it! Have a great week!

  29. Rachel

    I got a copy of the Bromance Book Club too (I forgot to include it in my post, lol) and I’m thrilled because it sounds good. I loved A Merciful Promise and was sad to say goodbye.

    It’s been a crazy week for me too, so I missed the whole Netflix/Amazon thing. Just now looked and had a laugh. 🙂

  30. Natalie @Natflix&Books

    Hope this week calms down! It was super wet all this week where I live, too, but the same came out today and it was gorgeous out. Magic for Liars looks fun. Happy reading!

  31. Greg

    Ooh hope your weather improves! We’ve been having a lot of rain and storms too to start off June, but the last week has been kinda nice. Hope some of that rolls your way! 🙂

    Moonstruck and Phoenix Unbound both sound good.
