Sunday Post #65 (2/2/14)

Posted February 1, 2014 | 41 Comments


The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Well, one month down, eleven to go. I hope these eleven go by really slow. I guess that was my End of January rhyme. πŸ˜€

I read 14 books in January. I usually read the most books in January because I have more time, but that tends to change in the coming months. Hopefully I’ll still be able to get plenty of reading in since I’ve cut back on blogging time. I’m actually ahead on my post, though, but I still have a few reviews to write. If I could catch up on writing them, then I’d be a month ahead.Β  It feels good, but at the same time … odd.

      I just finished The Fly House a little while ago … and wow! Now it’s on my growing to-review pile. Ugh. I think I’ll use the next couple of days to drink caffeine and bust out some reviews. πŸ˜€

  2. Yay you got your book! I’ve thrown a few bitch fits on twitter…it’s always creepy when the company responds to them even though they were not tagged, lol. I really need to get back into the blogging game so I can get ahead on posts. I hope you have a great week Christy and good luck getting the reviews typed up!

      Ha – yeah. At first I didn’t tag anyone, but then I finally tagged Amazon and HarperTeen. Then it was fixed. They got lucky … this time. πŸ˜‰

      If I don’t step it up, I’ll easily fall behind on reviews. I just HAVE to put my procrastinating issues to use in some way. πŸ˜€

  3. I came across Red Rising at our local bookstore and wanted really badly to get it, but it was the price of a hardcover for a paperback, so I’ll just get myself an eBook eventually. And the Infinite cover’s gorgeous! I haven’t read Asunder yet, but I hope to soon! πŸ˜€

  4. Running to buy Fly House – I suck as a Misty fan πŸ™ And I hate you and Kimba… ahead on your posts. πŸ˜› that’s for boring, serious folks that don’t like to stress at the last minute and fall asleep sitting up at their computers.

    errrr, waaaait a minute…. I think I’d like that.

    • Christy

      Yes, you need to read Misty’s latest masterpiece. lol – I still need to write reviews, so I’m not THAT much ahead yet. Hopefully I will be soon. Boring and stress free, just the way I like it.

  5. Great week Kimba!

    I’m reading Red Rising right now. So far, so great!

    Have to check out one or two authors you showcased that are new to me. These posts are such fun!

    • Christy

      The only reason I’m ahead on the blog is because I cut back on blogging. Sounds funny, but it worked. πŸ˜€

  6. I try so hard to get ahead and it never seems to happen. I think I am destined to always be one step before the actual post date. LOL

    Wait, Kimba said The Fly House has ‘graphic language and hot, graphic sex’?!? I have money left on my gift card! Have a great week!

    *runs to Amazon*

      Being ahead like this definitely takes some getting used to. πŸ˜€

      LOL – Yes, The Fly House does. It’s a great book!

  7. January can’t go by fast enough in my opinion. I hate that month. Glad to be in February closer to Spring. I am doing Flyhouse for Apocalypse. I had it scheduled for Fire and Ice but switched it. Cant wait. I am glad you are all caught up on your blog. I have been working to get further ahead on mine. It makes it so much easier!

    • Christy

      I hate the cold of January, but it’s my least busy month. I jut want everything to slow down now because my son will be a senior next year. πŸ™

      Yeah, The Fly House could’ve worked for F&I, but I think it would work better for Apocalypse.

  8. 14 books in January, way to go! You threw a bitch fit on Twitter *snickers* You’re hilarious. I hope you enjoy all your new books and manage to keep up your reading momentum. πŸ˜‰
