Sunday Post #133 (7/12/15) – I’m Back! (kind of)

Posted July 11, 2015 | 46 Comments


The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

I’m back from a much needed vacation, but left again for a couple days. I should be around more after this weekend. Maybe. I did get some good reading in, though. I ended up reading a total of 10 books/audiobooks in June.

My son is taking sign language in summer school and I’m trying to learn it from him and his book. It’s pretty cool!

I’m so excited for The Drafter, but kind of nervous for a new series from Kim Harrison.

I love when books on my wishlist have price drops. All three books in the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy were $1.99! I grabbed the 2nd and 3rd audiobook in the series after listening to Succubus Blues.

I LOVED Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews! So I grabbed itΒ  for $1.99 since I didn’t have a finished copy. Do not let the horrible cover fool you!

Β Have a great week!

  1. I loved Succubus Blues and the entire series. So good! Loved Snow Like Ashes and the sequel as well. I finally need to read something by Karina Halle.

    • Christy

      I really liked Succubus Blues. Oh man, YES, you definitely need to read some Halle. Read Racing the Sun when it comes out!

      • Karina Halle will be at that big signing in SF August 8th and I’m trying to figure out which book I want to get and take there to have signed and I want to get one for a friend for a present. Between Sins and Needles, Love In English, Where Sea Meets Sky or Racing the Sun which of all those do you think I would most like? lol

          Aw, lucky girl! S&N is way different than the other three. LiE, WSMS, and RtS are all loosely connected through certain characters, but it’s really not a big deal to read in any order. And that’s coming from someone who’s OCD about that. I would suggest Racing the Sun if you had to pick from those four. LiE holds a special place in my heart, but seriously, RtS is really freaking good! You’ll love it.

    • Christy

      I like starting the older series that already have lots of books or are finished. Means I can read the series as slow or fast as I want.

    • Christy

      Oooo now I’m really excited. I’ve never read anything by Sandford, but this book sounds good.

    • Christy

      Sign language is great to teach kids, they can start at like 6 months old I believe, and communicate even though they can’t verbalize. I wish I had known when my son was born. Ohhh I loved Racing the Sun!

  2. Oh my, somebody loaded up for the coming weeks!! Yeah baby. I actually have the ARC of Half a King sitting on my shelf b/c it sounded so good – I really want to read it but I have a hard time picking up my physical copies.

    Summer is so slow. I feel like I’m just filling in what I’m doing on my Sunday Post. What else am I going to put? “Sat on my ass all week”? Yeah, I’m a lazy git πŸ™‚

    BTW – I’d say you’re back, you’re just on a summer posting schedule – 2-3 times a week. Hobby, remember that. *hugs*

    • Christy

      You could grab Half King for kindle since it’s cheap right now. I guess the 2nd book is near.

      I was going to post about what I did and maybe share pictures, but I’m lazy about that stuff. lol

      Two posts a week is my full-time now. That’s how I roll. πŸ˜€

    • Christy

      Thanks! I’ve only listened to Succubus Blues, but I can already tell I’ll love the series. Besides, it’s only 6 books, so it wont be hard to get through.

  3. I intend to read John Sandford for the first time very soon ! A coworker/friend of mine knows how to sign, her cousins are deaf and she’s fluent, which is helpful with some readers of ours πŸ˜‰

      This will be my first Sandford book, and I’m looking forward to it. My son is picking ASL up super quick and easy, but I’m a little slower since I’m not actually in the classroom.

    • Christy

      It’s really cool to know. I have a couple friends who took all 4 years of it in college, but they never really used it and now don’t remember a lot.

  4. I got really excited when I saw that All the Bright Places was on sale…then realized I already own it (and read it). I do this a lot actually. I know I own them but I get so happy to see the price I just forget and want to buy it.
    I hope you had a good break! I’ve been thinking about taking one, but everytime I think I might I end up putting up another week’s worth of posts.

    • Christy

      Hahaha I do that too! I can’t wait to read it.

      If you have posts, just schedule them for another week and take one off. Relax. Then you’ll have posts already done for when you’re break is over.

    • Christy

      It’s probably good you haven’t read it yet. They pushed the date for the 2nd book back to 2016, so … yeah. πŸ™

      Of course I learned all the dirty words first. lol
