Sunday Post #192 (2/5/17) – Good Vibes & Touchdowns

Posted February 4, 2017 | 35 Comments

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

January was seriously … something else. The last two weeks have literally felt like years with all that’s going on in the world.

Anyway, I read 5 books in January. Four of the five get a lot of love from me. I’d have to say Infini and Eleventh Grave at Moonlight top the list for sure.

It’s Superbowl time! Neither one of the teams are mine, but I still love to watch. I’m rooting for Atlanta!

On a more personal note (I’m stingy with these): my grandparents spend the winters in Arizona, and my grandpa fell and had a silent heart attack while there. He’s doing better, but he’s still in the hospital and they want to do an angiogram Sunday morning (today). It’s extra worrisome because of his age. I would just feel better if they could come back and be treated by his doctors in Santa Barbara instead. So any good vibes sent this way (that way?) would be appreciated.

On the Blog

  • Infini by K.B. Ritchie (review) – Loved it big time!
  • By Your Side by Kasie West (review) – Not her best book.

Books Read

  • Infini by K.B. Ritchie – see above.

Books Acquired

For Review:

*happy dance* I’m so excited for Now I Rise!! The blurb for One of Us is Lying felt like a challenge, so I’m taking it – lol. I probably would’ve skipped Changes in Latitude had I not realized it’s by the same author who wrote Wanderlost. โ™ฅ

Alertalertalert!

Hidden Bodies by Caroline Kepnes is $1.99 today! It’s the follow-up to You, one of the best books EVER!

Watching

Okay, I watched the first two episodes of Riverdale, but I’m not sure about it yet. It does get bonus points for making a Mildred Pierce reference and incorporating Josie and the Pussycats, though. I think it’ll be one of those shows where the more I watch, the harder it’ll be to quit.

ย Random

I know this is a 4th of July video, but it feels more relevant than ever right now.


Have a great week!

  1. Yeah Atlanta! Although I’ll be watching the commercials mostly and chowing lol. I watched the first Riverdale and thought it has potential- I’ll probably keep watching. And you got One of Us Is Lying!

    Sorry t hear about your grandpa- definitely sending lots of vibes and best wishes his way and yours. Hoping for all the best.

  2. I’m not a football person, so I won’t be watching the Superbowl. I didn’t even realize it was Superbowl Sunday until you mentioned it lol.

    I’m sorry to hear about your grandpa :-/ I’ve just sent some good vibes to both you and Arizona.

    Enjoy the game, enjoy your books, and hopefully all will be well with your grandpa!

    Ha! The blurb sounded like a challenge, that’s a good one. I can’t wait to see what you’ll think of it, Christy!
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

    So sorry to hear of your grandfather, Christy. I very much hope he is soon on the path to recovery.

    I noticed you have recently reviewed The Operator – I hadn’t realised Kim Harrison had written another series. I’ve just read The Turn and recalled all over again what a cracking writer she is. I need to track down this series – thank you so much for sharing. Have a better week with MUCH better news! My Sunday Post – https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/2017/02/05/sunday-post-5th-february-2017/

  5. Go Atlanta over here. I am excited for the Superbowl and to see the half time show. Sending lots of good vibes over to you and your grandpa. I am hoping to get Changes in Latitude since I LOVED Wanderlost. I am holding off on Riverdale until I hear more. Have a great week!

  6. I’m so sorry about your Grandpa……I’m in Arizona too only we live here year round

    I’m rooting for Atlanta too, I can’t stand Tom Brady!!

    Sending healing thoughts for your Grandpa!

  7. Sending all the positive thoughts to your grandpa, Christy.
    I’m with you on these two weeks. It’s been hell. And jeez, I really hope we don’t have to deal with 4 years of this. >.<
    Yay for getting Changes in Latitude! I loved Wanderlost!
    I'm caught up on Riverdale too and I'm enjoying it, though I don't know if this is a show that will last more than a season tbh. What the heck did they do with Ms. Grundy??????

  8. Praying for your grandpa AND you and your entire family. AZ doctors will take care of him, I’m sure this isn’t their first rodeo.

    I actually picked up Changes in Latitudes because you liked Wanderlust so much!! I knew I had to give her try and I was so excited to see a new book by her!!!!!

    “Try” and have a relaxing time watching the game tonight… please??? The world won’t fix itself in a day….

  9. Sorry to hear about your grandfather and my thoughts are with him!

    I was disappointed by Hidden Bodies… particularly after You was so great!

    Is Riverdale the show based on the Archie comics? I’ve seen some pics and no one looks like I expected them to!

  10. I am really sorry to hear about your Grandpa. I hope the procedure went well this morning and he is on the mend.

    I am rooting for Atlanta as well…or I should say that I am really just cheering against the Patriots. I just don’t want them to win. Enjoy all of your new books!

    Your grandpa is in my prayers. The past few weeks have been something. Hopefully clear heads and hearts will prevail. I am not really a football fan, so I didn’t watch the game.

  12. I read four books in January. My goal for this month is five. I’ve already finished one, so I’m hoping! ๐Ÿ™‚

    So sorry to hear about your grandfather. That is distressing. Transporting him in a fragile state could be adverse, but I understand the need to want him back with his home doctors. I hope he is doing well and all will turn out right.

  13. I agree with you about January…years went by and yet they were over in the blink of an eye! It doesn’t bode well, does it? I’m sorry to hear about your grandpa and I’m absolutely sending good vibes HIS way and YOUR way!! <3 I'm happy you had a good reading month in January and it looks like February is stacked up to be pretty great too. I love the cover for Now I Rise!! Have a great week, Christy!
