Sunday Post #89 (7/27/14)

Posted July 26, 2014 | 46 Comments


The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

I went up to San Jose this week, so I wasn’t around much. I did get some reading in, though.

My goal was to read 95 books this year, but I already passed that. Believe me, I’m completely shocked by this.

I did participate in the Wicked Wildfire Read-a-thon and reached my goal of six books.

On the Blog

  • Red by Kate SeRine – Review.

Books Read

How to Handle a Heartbreaker by Marie Harte

Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James – I reviewed it on Goodreads

For review:


Review Consideration:

the house of the four winds


Top four were/are free. The rest (except If I Stay) were on sale at one time during the week. The entire Kate Daniels series was, but I only grabbed the first three.



Hope you have a great week!

      I only did a little quick review n GR. It wasn’t very good. I want to flog Ana myself just because she was so annoying. lol

  1. Ooh I loved Searching for Someday by Jennifer Probst. I hope you enjoy it too.
    I read your review of FSOG. I personally liked the series but Ana does get on my nerves as well. I guess it’s one of those books you either love or hate.
    I hope you have a great week.

  2. Congratulations on passing your reading goal mark! 🙂 I’m being reminded of the Kate Daniels a lot these past few days. It’s like the universe is really telling me to get the first book right now. I’ll check the book out the next time I’m at a bookstore, after I’ve replenished my book fund. LOL 🙂

    Beautiful Oblivion is one of those books that I waited for FOREVER and I wanted to love it, but I couldn’t. It was just too flawed for me. I’m not entirely sure I’ll ever actually review it, not because I am concerned about my opinion being unpopular, but because I don’t like to write ranty reviews. I loved Beautiful Disaster, liked Walking Disaster and pretty much loathed A Beautiful Wedding. I’m not sure I’ll continue on with the Maddox Brothers series.

    On a positive note, however, Searching for Someday was great! (I loved the sequel, Searching for Perfect, even more though!) I loved If I Stay (and, again, the sequel!) and The Hazards series is fun and sexy.

    Happy reading!

      I haven’t read any of Travis or Abby’s books and don’t plan to. BO was good, but had major issues.

      Yay I can’t wait to read those books then!

    • Christy

      Yeah, it just made me want to move back to the Bay Area. I lived there are 2 years and loved it.

  4. Oh I hope you like the hazards of skinny dipping. I just read the 3rd book and really enjoyed it! It is a fun series. How did you like 50 shades of grey? And darn you christy! Chasing Beautiful is free and looks good! You are not good for my book habit.

  5. I think a lot of us grabbed Once Perfect! Maybe we should all do a group read, I know Heidi and Kim also grabbed it this week. 😉

    The Kate Daniels series is great but I have to warn you, I didn’t love it, really love it, until book three so be warned! In fact, *gasp* I thought the first book was pretty boring…sort of. It drags a little in the beginning and I didn’t like Curan very much. He had to grow on me.

      Is there going to be a blog tour for it? I can’t remember. I get mixed up with this and the WG series emails.

      That’s fine. I always go into a new UF series not expecting to love the first one, maybe two. They tend to take some warming up to.

  6. I’m not going to say anything about FSOG except to say this: I have zero interest in any of it. lol Congrats on passing your goal already! I’m about on target for my goal of 250. I so want to read Graveyard Shift. I’ve heard it’s funny, so I need to bump it up. Have a wonderful week! 🙂

      Haha – yeah, I never thought I’d read it, but it fell in my lap. It really wasn’t worth the time.

      250 … damn. I’m wondering if I can get close to 200 since I’ve already hit 100.

    Get you passing your goal already. that’s awesome! I am still like 10 books behind on my challenge, and have been since christmas. 😉 I love the cover for House of the Four Winds. I need to check that book out. I also need to play catch-up with the Kate Daniels series one of these days!

  8. WOAh you read 95 books already, that is amazing! I’ve only read 75 so far but it’s a lot more than I have in previous years. Going to check out your fifty shades review now. I totally agree that the writing was absolutely terrible, and Ana was so annoying I wanted to slap her. She felt like a 14 year old child.

  9. I hope you had loads of fun in San Jose! 😀 And it’s REALLY great that you passed your reading goal for the year *high fives*. I am almost done with mine too so I am pretty happy! 😀

    The House of Four Winds sounds FABULOUS and I do hope you’ll review it so I’ll know what to expect :DD

    I hope you’ll like Searching for Someday! I read it a while back and I cannot quite remember what I rated it but I thought it was a cutsey read so I hope you’ll enjoy it! 🙂

    AND THE KATE DANIELS SERIES! Okay so I am not the biggest fan of the series but they are quite enjoyable and I hope you’ll gobble the series up! 🙂

    Great haul, Christy! And I hope you have a FABULOUS week! 🙂

  10. I was rocking my GR reading challenge and five books ahead of schedule until June rolled around and all the yuck happened now I am four books behind. Still hoping to reach my goal. I am curious about Servants of the Storm everyone wanted that one and it isn’t getting good reviews. I see you are going to read some Kate Daniels, I swear I am going to start it soon.
