Sunday Post #67 (2/16/14)

Posted February 15, 2014 | 40 Comments


The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Well the weather went back to warm and sunny. Today it’s 75ΒΊ, which is not normal. I love it, though. But then I feel a bit guilty for being happy with it because the drought here is really bad. Farmers aren’t even able to put their crops in the ground. So you all get prepared for your food prices to go up, because California is the Nation’s #1 supplier of agriculture. Speaking of agriculture, the World Ag Expo was this week and it was a lot of fun. Yes, I said fun. lol. Huge machinery is sexy πŸ˜‰ Am I letting my Redneckness show?

I participated in the Wicked Valentine’s Read-a-Thon and busted out 6 books this week. Believe me, that pretty much never happens. I usually only read about 2 books a week, so I kind of went on a reading rampage. πŸ˜€ Now I have a bunch of reviews to write.

The Boys of Summer by C.J. Duggan is one of my favorite books from one of my favorite series and it’s FREE right now!

It’s a wonderful book set in Australia. It may seem YA, but it’s not really. The super sexy Onlsow boys are about 19-20 years old, and then the next book jumps 4 years. Love them!

      I LOVED Pivot Point and Split Second. They’re not alternate reality … well, PP is in a way, but … it’s different. lol, I’m great at explaining, huh? You really should read them though.

    • Christy

      Ha, well … I actually ended up liking Raw. Not in an erotica way, I just read it for what it was … an effed up relationship.

  1. Ooooh! You read some great books last week. Kiss the Sky is in my top 5 for 2014 so far… and pretty high up on my all-time favorites list. I just finished an audiobook of Wallbanger the week before last. I can’t even tell you the last time I laughed so hard and so often during a book.

    Also, LOVE the Onslow boys. It’s such a great series. I can’t wait for the upcoming novella.

    Happy reading!

  2. Congrats on reading six books this week Christy! That’s awesome πŸ™‚ I loved Getting Rowdy, and just got Dash of Peril for review! I’m really excited to read it πŸ™‚ I read The Great Gatsby in high school, and really enjoyed it! Wallbanger was hilarious, and I’m looking forward to continuing the series. Anywhere With You looks hood, and I want to read Pivot Point and Split Second so badly! Happy Reading this week πŸ™‚

      Thanks! Yes, I have Dash’s book and can’t WAIT to dive in. My son (11th grade) is read The Great Gatsby now, and it’s easier to discuss his work when I’ve read it too. I don’t remember reading it in high school, so it was a first for me. Pivot Point and SS were very good!

  3. Christy! You did awesome with books this week. I have been telling everyone that I can think of that the boys of summer is free. I LOVE that series!

    I just snagged a copy of her mad hatter.

    Its a good thing i’m participating in both of kimba’s march events bc my TBR pile hates me right now. I have been slowly been hitting away at it but march it going to be a great catch up time though.

    Thanks so much about the compliment about the cookies! My sister has a cookie press and I have been dying to use it. Valentine’s day was just an excuse haha

    Happy Reading Christy πŸ™‚

  4. Way to go with the reading spree! I really need to sit down and do the same. I plan on joining in on Kimba’s events, so hopefully I can do some catching up then. It sucks that the farmers are having trouble right now, especially since the rest of the country is getting way too much water.
    I hope you enjoy your books!
