The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Oh my gosh, you guys … it has been so nice here! I know a lot of you are freezing, and I sound like a jackass, but it’s like springtime – 70 to 75Β° and sunny, which is 15+ degrees higher than normal. Love it! We’ve even had the windows open. Friday was my brother’s birthday, and in 27 years, it’s the first time it hasn’t rained on it. And Saturday morning my son ran in an annual 10k that is named for our super thick valley fog, and the race is ran in it along the river lined with huge oak trees. It’s usually really creepy cool – think Sleepy Hollow (1999), but today it was all sunshine.

I’m super pissed. I’ve been waiting for the release of Evertrue by Brodi Ashton, but the kindle edition has been unavailable and ‘under review’ on Amazon all week. Grrr … don’t they know I need it?!

      Sure, I’ll open a B&B. πŸ˜€

      I don’t know, but they have a wrong cover for it, so that might be it. I just want it already, dammit.

  1. Ooohhhh you got Kiss The Sky! I LOVED it!!! OMG The reality show interviews with the characters are so hilarious. I still need to read Everneath. I’ve always wanted to because the covers are so pretty! Just haven’t had a chance yet.

      You should! Their RATs are pretty much the only ones I sign up for … well, and of course Kim’s in March.

      C’mon over to CA, I’m going to open a refuge for all of you freezing people. πŸ˜‰

      The notice on Amazon says:

      “Item Under Review
      This book is currently unavailable because there is an issue with its description, content, or formatting.
      We are working with the publisher to fix the issue. As always, we value customer feedback.”

      I notice it is the wrong cover showing, but how long could that take to fix?! Unless it’s the wrong book all together. Maybe you should check your copy.

      • Christy

        But the inside content is correct? Dude, if it’s only the cover that needs to be fixed, then they need to freaking get on it!

          • Christy

            The cover for the hardback is correct on Amazon, but the kindle edition isn’t. I’m going to start throwing a bitch fit here pretty soon. I had planned to have it read by now, dammit. Grrr … I’m going to go find someone to complain to. lol

  2. Does your son do trail runs mostly? That sounds awesome!!! I just imagine the thick fog – like marine layer but stuck in the valley. I’m sure there’s some dust added too, no? How cool to get your windows open, too!! You’d laugh at us – we open our windows as soon as it hits 60!!!! It’s really cool that I’ve lived both places (err, all over really) and I can swear by the fact that Californian’s blood seriously thins and y’all get colder faster! I’m FINALLY used to the east coast/midwest winters after being gone from Cali almost 10 years.

    Ahhhh, Dash’s book πŸ™‚ Yes, I will read these in order when I get to this series… I’ve only gotten into the habit of reading out of order lately b/c of stinkin’ review books. I’ve gone to the dark side!!!

    YES!! I love the subtle color in your background!!! White is blinding sometimes. That’s why I like grey textures for backgrounds. I’m going to that eventually. I know what you mean about playing with code – I’m headed there REAL soon πŸ™

    Have a great week – soak up some Vitamin D for me!!!

    • Christy

      He does cross country and track, but mostly does track to stay in shape for cross country season. The tule fog gets crazy thick because there isn’t much wind movement like there is on the coast. I’m sure Wikipedia could explain it better than I can. Ha – yes, we have thin skin. But don’t you love how we wear shorts with our sweatshirts? πŸ˜€

      Yes, read them in order. I’m currently reading the 3rd book and loving it.

      Okay, that’s good to know about the coloring of the blog!

    • Christy

      lol – don’t worry, there’s a downfall to the nice weather. Watch for you food price to increase in the not to distant future.

      Ugh, Amazon just likes to torture me!

  3. I can’t complain about our weather either we got rid of the thick Stephen King fog and had sunny skies all last week but lots of wind. I know they are worrying about drought but we always get a ton of rain in the spring so I am enjoying this while it lasts. I am so itching to read Undead Pool I have my copy but don’t have it on the blog for a couple of more weeks.

      Well send some of that rain this way, because we’re not so lucky. If you don’t share a tremendous amount of rain soon, watch for your food prices to increase. lol – sounds like I’m threatening you over weather.

  4. Your weather sounds lovely! Much better than the near zero or below zero temps we’ve had here. I hope you are able to get Evertrue soon. Waiting for a book you really want is the worst.
