The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Well, it was an emotional week with my son’s graduation, but I’m okay now. Mostly. I think some of the underclassmen girls cried at the graduation about him leaving more than I did. <insert eye roll here> I wish I were joking.

Anyone watch the X-games? We love them. And I’m curious to see if American Phararoh wins the Triple Crown. My gut says yes, but my head has doubts.

The temperatures are still in the 90s, but they’re supposed to go up to the 100s this week. Hooray (← sarcasm).

I have a giveaway on Facebook/Twitter – Win an e-copy of Bringing Home the Bad Boy by Jessica Lemmon. Just like or RT.

For Review:

This isn’t the official cover for Hidden Bodies, so don’t judge it. πŸ˜‰ But it is the sequel to the amazing You, and I can barely contain my excitement!

I was on the fence about The Heart Goes Last, but my instincts are telling me to read it. We’ll see.

I’ve heard good things about this series, so I grabbed Rush since it’s only $1.99. And Unbreak Me is free.

What Else …

Love & Mercy opens this weekend and I can’t wait to watch it. I’ve been in love with the Beach Boys since I was little. I’d put their tape in my Walkman and roller skate around the neighborhood. That was the 80’s and I was like 7 or 8. lol. #Dork


Have a great week!

      • He is fine. Mad really. He was in the right lane and a motorcycle past him. He thought it was clear and merged over, another biker was behind and the two occupied the same lane for a bit, when he went past my son’s driver window he waved to indicate he was sorry as the biker passed him. Once the biker got in front of my son he slammed on his my son in his huge truck hit him. Ooops. My son got ticketed for driving too close. The biker had no insurance, no helmet and was ticketed for numerous son doesn’t know for what. Of course by the time the cops got there my son said bikers all appeared from nowhere. *assholes* The only damage to the truck was the licence plate fell off.

          People are such dicks sometimes. I’m glad the cops got there before anything else happened, and especially glad he’s okay.

  1. Oh, I hadn’t realised the sequel to YOU was quite that far progressed. Very exciting! Am intrigued by the latest Margaret Atwood title as well. I’ve struggled with some of her recent releases…. but realise that’s me not her!

      Yup, it’s a September release, so I think she had the 2nd one in the works already. I haven’t read any of Atwood’s books, so … *crosses fingers*

  2. LOL about the teen-girls who were so sad about your son graduating and leaving them behind. I would have totally rolled my eyes too, if I were you!
    Your new books look really good Christy, and I hope you’ll enjoy them.
    Have a great week ahead and happy reading.

      Seriously. One had her arms wrapped around his waist in a death grip. He’s just like patting her on the back and said he’ll see her Monday because he’s going to help coach the XC team for summer training. lol.

    • Christy

      Funny this is, he’s going to see them Monday and most of the summer to help with XC training. lol. Oh, Grace, you need to read You immediately!

  3. So funny about the teen girls! Graduations are so nice but so emotional for us mother’s as well! Congratulations on your son’s graduation. Have a great week and enjoy all of those books!

      Thanks Cindy! It is pretty funny. I had to school my facial expressions and refrain from laughing at the time though.

    • Christy

      I don’t even know what got me started on them. I was really into 50’s and 60’s music, but my grandparents mostly listened to country, and my parents listened to rock. So who knows. lol.

    • Christy

      Yuck. Temps in the 100s is normal around here during the summer, but it always takes some adjusting.

    • Christy

      Yeah, I watched it. I think it’s funny that he’ll go down in history with a misspelled name. lol. I love hot weather too, but it takes some adjusting to at the beginning of summer.

  4. Teenage girls can be the most annoying creatures. I’m thankful that mine aren’t of the overly dramatic sort though they still have their moments! I can’t believe that American Pharaoh pulled it off. It’s so exciting and I don’t even follow horse racing. Have a great week!

  5. We hit ninety today and supposed to again tomorrow, talk about a change in two days we went from 60 to 90 no nice warm up. Instant heat! So you survived the graduation, I am sure it feels good to have it over since you have been dreading it for so long. Now what for your son?

    • Christy

      Blah, it’s 97 right now. I hope the forecast is lying about tomorrow being 105. Yeah, it’s harder when there’s such a jump like that, instead of easing into it. He’s looking for a part-time job and will help with his high school’s XC summer training. Then he’ll attend and run for a college not too far from here.

    Well, I guess you know how the Belmont turned out. πŸ˜€ I can imagine it was an emotional week for though that’s funny about the girls. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    100s? *shudders* Stay cool. Eeep.

  7. It was awesome hearing about American Pharaoh! I was coming home from the book festival when I heard, but luckily my husband recorded the whole thing. I couldn’t wait to get home to watch it. X-Games…yes! Glad to hear you made it through your son’s graduation. I’ll join the eyeroll at those girls. Try and keep cool this week, Christy!

  8. Oh, my god, they cried?? That is so funny… I don’t think I was ever that attached to another human being! Besides my family, of course. lmao Congrats to your son! It was bittersweet for my mom when my brother and I graduated as well. πŸ™‚ Rush looks really good. Will have to keep an eye on your review πŸ˜€
