Sunday Post #84 (6/22/14)

Posted June 21, 2014 | 45 Comments


The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

It is officially summer (in the northern hemisphere) and we have the 102° temperature to prove it! I do believe it’s time for a beach trip.

Is anyone else excited for this?
It starts July 13th on FX and is based on The Strain by Guillermo del Torro.


I want to thank everyone for celebrating my 3rd blogoversary with me. The winner of the giveaway is Jennifer L. Also, I held a few flash giveaways on Facebook, and think I might continue doing them randomly just for the hell of it.

I know it looks like a lot, but hear me out! I like to filter my Wishlist on Amazon every so often for price drops. All of these were cheap and the last two were free. A couple were promotion deals. You’ll have to check if prices are still reduced. They’re all linked to Amazon.

      I hope so too! It’s okay, when it’s freezing here, I’ll be envious of you Australians. 😉

  1. Oh, you grabbed some really amazing books this week. I have a copy of Shadow and Bone but still haven’t read it. I’m waiting for my Ruin and Rising to arrive first. I really hope you’ll enjoy all those books. Great haul 🙂

  2. What beach do you go to??? I’m totally jealous that you live in Cali but I do have to admit, I live a 5 minute drive from my beach and if I look out over the water, I don’t see any land so I pretend it’s the ocean! tee, hee…

    I don’t think that’s a lot of books! You really were due to fill up your reader again! Sounded like you had a cranky week (on FB) so you needed some “retail” therapy, anyways 😀

      It’s kind of a joke around here… when anyone from Bakersfield to Fresno says “The Beach”, you automatically know they mean Pismo. lol. That’s like our 2nd home. There’s also Morro Bay, but we usually go there to eat, shop around, and few other stuff. If you want a more recluse small beach town get away, you go to Cayucos. We used to have a condo there, but it burned down when I was a teen. And NO, I had nothing to do with it. All three are just a few miles up and down the coast from each other.

      LOL – Yeah, there was something posted on FB that was not meant to go there and has been deleted. 😀

  3. I’m really interested in trying some of Marina Adair books. They always look so cute and perfect for summer. Have you read anything by her before?

    Enjoy your goodies and happy reading 🙂

      No, I haven’t. This will be the first book I’ve read by her. The thing is, it’s the 5th book in the series, but I guess can be read as standalone. I still might read them in order.

  4. Holy cow! If it was 102 where I am, I’d go to the beach too. You Northerners have had it rough this year with the arctic winter and now blistering summer. I’m in the friggin’ South and it hasn’t gotten above the low 90s. And that’s enough about the weather, LOL. I hadn’t heard of the new FX show, but I will definitely check it out, and SO glad you got Shadow and Bone. Now you just have to find the time to read it, right? 😉 Happy Sunday!

      Technically, I’m a westerner. lol. When you mentioned S&B was on sale I grabbed it. That was the easy part. Now to actually read it is the tough part. 😀

      I love summer storms, but raining for a week … booo. I love the cover of Dead of Night and Fall of Night.

    • Christy

      I hope it’s good too. I don’t often read books like that anymore, but I usually enjoy them when I do.

  5. It has gotten hot here too, thankfully not quite int he 100’s yet but I am sure that is just around the corner.

    I have been seeing others post about that new show but I know nothing about it yet. I guess I need to go check it out.
