Sunday Post #138 (8/16/15) – The Devil Is Coming!

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

It was a pretty good week. There were a couple days, Monday especially, where I was so focused and lost in my work all day that I had that ‘what the hell happened’ feeling when I finished. It was a little disorienting, like no way 8+ hours had passed. Maybe that’s why I have a headache now, my brain is in recovery.

I made a list of 30 books a couple months ago and made it my mission to read them, so they’re getting top priority between review books. I’m down to 21, so I’m making progress. I’ll make a new one once I finish these.

Did you hear? Devil in the White City by Erik Larson is finally going to make it to the big screen and it’ll star Leonardo DiCaprio as H.H. Holmes! I’m so excited! I love this book. Have any of you read it?

Oh! And if any of you receive unsubscribe emails with my address, don’t worry, I’m just switching emails I use to subscribe with. Again.

    Oh, you got Forbidden, lucky lady.

    I haven’t heard of The Devil in the White City but I’ll keep an eye out for it; I do like Leonardo DiCaprio.

    Congrats on getting your books read! It feels good to read non-review books now and then.:)

      I hope Forbidden is good. I haven’t read the previous series, so we’ll see.

      What?! Oh man, you should read DitWC.

      I’ve heard TTWSG is really good, so hopefully that turns out to be true for me too. You should read TDitWC!

      I think I initially put Before Ever After on my wishlist because if you, so it better be good. πŸ˜‰ And if ‘shrooms is what can get me focus like that, then damn, I need a bulk supply.

  2. I LOVE that feeling when time flies by and you’ve been completely absorbed in something. It really only happens when I’m enjoying something (or writing or reading).

    A lot of books I haven’t heard of there and I’m sure you’ll love them!

    While sometimes it’s good when time flies (especially when we’re at work!) it’s less good when it ends up giving us a headache. I hope you’re feeling better now, Christy!
    Your new books look great – I loved The Last Time We Say Goodbye, and needed tissues for that one, and of course, Richelle Mead is my queen πŸ™‚
    Have a fantastic week ahead and happy reading.

  4. Awww, girl I hope you feel better! I’m fighting one today, too.

    I actually saw the announcement about Devil on Friday on a newsletter I get but I didn’t get the significance. NOW I get it!! The book sounds like it’s perfect for my mom and sis-in-law (I’m in a rainbows kind of mood right now) so I’m going to push it on them!! My mom collects gargoyles, if that explains anything…

  5. I really need to make a list like that. But I’m such a mood reader. It’s awful sometimes. Yet, I’ve found that if I push myself to read a book I’m not in the mood for at the time it just makes reading that book painful and I’m more likely to DNF it. But it’d be worth a shot. YAY for getting a ton of work done. Sorry about the headache though. And I really need to read more of the Georgina Kincaid series. Have a great week!

  6. When I saw your title: “The Devil is Coming”, I thought you were coming to Idaho to get me. I have a copy of that book but haven’t gotten around to reading it, yet. Also want to start the Georgia Kincaid Series on audio, I love Richelle Mead. Anyway don’t miss me too much until I get back full time!

  7. I haven’t read Devil in the White City but I want to. I’m definitely curious about the movie. I know a little bit about H.H. Holmes and curious to see what kind of job Leonardo DiCaprio does portraying him. I love the idea of making a list of 30 books. I may have to borrow that idea. I have so many it gets a little overwhelming choosing which one to read. Have a great week!

  8. Christy, I need to take a page out of your book! I should make a list of books to make top priority between review copies. I was thinking about a TBR jar, but there are just too many categories I think it’d be a nightmare. I want to try it, but maybe I’ll set it up in segments of priority lists…that might work! Happy reads!

    Sounds like an exciting week! I’ve not read the book but I’m really excited for you πŸ™‚ I hope the movie is just as awesome for you πŸ˜€
    I love that you’re reading the Georgian Kincaid series! It’s one of my all time favourites so I hope you’re enjoying it πŸ™‚
    Have a great week,

  10. I LOVED DEVIL IN THE WHITE CITY!!! OMG, thanks for the info! Leo will make a great H. H. Holmes. I originally picked that book up because of the cover, and it was on B&N’s Recommended Reads table. I wasn’t sure it would something I’d like, but soon discovered I couldn’t put it down.

    Also thanks for the notice about Richelle Mead’s Georgia Kincaid series. I’ve been wanting to start that. The second book is also $1.99.

    Your work week sounds like my last couple! 4:00 rolls around and I’m thrilled because I get to leave and baffled because somehow it’s 4:00. Congrats on whittling down your list of 30. I should probably do that. I’m just not disciplined enough to stick to it.

    Have a great week!
