Sunday Post #136 (8/2/15) – Make It A Double

Posted August 1, 2015 | 38 Comments


The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Well, I am officially the parent of an adult now. We celebrated my son’s birthday during the day on Saturday with a BBQ, cake, and gifts. Now he’s out celebrating his adultness with his adult friends doing adult things I probably don’t want to know about. lol. I need a drink …

The beginning of the week started off well, but that didn’t last long. I’ve mostly felt off lately and wasn’t feeling good for a couple days. I just haven’t felt like doing anything. I have been reading though, and it’s been nice reading so many non-review books, just knocking out some of the TBR books I’ve wanted to read for awhile.

I also updated to Windows 10, which went smoothly. I don’t really see the big deal. I mean, it’s pretty much how I already had my computer setup with the previous version using a couple of tweeks. *shrugs* Okay, there are a few new features, but nothing I’m really gaga over. Except the calculator – now that improvement I like. πŸ˜€

      Add books to your wishlist, and then whenever you go on, filter it by price drops. It’ll show all the books that are cheaper than when you added them. But the price drops are usually temporary.

      No, make me! Nah, I have an appointment for my annual soon, so we’ll see. Haha – you’d think removing the gall bladder is the answer to everything with the way doctors enjoy removing them.

  1. I wondered about reading non-review books. If they’re books I really want to read and love I wonder if I’ll feel compelled to write about them – either on the blog or at least in brief on Goodreads….

    Hope you’re feeling better again soon!

  2. I’m reluctant to go near any of these newer versions of Windows! I’m still using XP which does everything I need. When I put Windows 7 into my last computer, it crashed and destroyed everything. So not keen to install anything new by Windows now. I don’t have the money to replace another computer!

  3. *sighs* yeah, being parents to adults is a very weird feeling! My oldest turned 20 this summer, and my second oldest will be 18 in September… I don’t feel like I’m old enough to be their mom, Christy!
    I enjoyed The Edge of Never, and I hope you did too! Your new books look good, especially We’ll Never Be Apart.
    Have a fantastic week, and happy reading! Hopefully, you’ll have more energy next week πŸ™‚

  4. Especially a son, he’ll never be grown up, so don’t start feeling adrift.
    I’m on a no-ARC stretch right now, too, just reading a few things I’ve wanted to try.

    Sounds like a pretty good week – bookish and otherwise! I read The Edge of Never right after it came out and really enjoyed it. I hope you did as well. Bounce is on my list to read sooner rather than later, so I’m interested to see your thoughts on it.

    Have a great week!

  6. Oh wow! Since I’m just starting this whole motherhood ride I can’t even imagine having all of my children be adults. I’ll be keeping you in my prayers. I know that’s got to be bittersweet. I’m with you, I haven’t seen much difference between Windows 10 and Windows 7 myself. And so far nothing has been a bad experience for me! Hope you enjoy your new books! Have a great week!

  7. It’s definitely weird having adult children! And yeah I’m thinking we don’t want to know what’s going on! That’s good to know about Windows 10. I keep getting told I can upgrade but that kind of thing always makes me a little nervous. Have a great week!

  8. I hope you loved Sanctum. Sarah Fine is one of my favs. Wow. Your son is an adult now. That is a sobering thought as a mother, I am sure. I know, I keep going through slumps where I don’t want to do anything blog related. At least, I was ambitious in the winter and I am prepped all through August right now and working on September. I know I will need the cushion with company coming again. I just grabbed that Shadow and Crown book too for .99 I am reading such great reviews for the series. Let me know if you see the other two go on sale in that series.

  9. I’ve been feeling off lately, too. I think mine is because I have to return to school tomorrow so it was a “mourning summer” mood. My computer keeps wanting me to update to Windows 10, and I’m not sure I want to do that…at all. I like what I’ve got. Have a great week!

  10. Bea

    Happy birthday to your son! I can only imagine what you’re feeling but I say, have that drink! πŸ˜€

    I’m waiting to upgrade until the bugs get worked out. Though I may get a new laptop before I get the upgrade.

    Enjoy your non-review books and have a good week!

  11. My mom felt the same way when I graduated from college, lol. At one point, she was happy that she has one less kid to pay tuition for, but then she also went through a “phase” in which she called me “my baby girl” every single time, lol. But don’t worry, we always need our mommas every now and then even though we don’t show it, lol.

    I’ve been wanting to get my hands on We’ll Never Be Apart but alas, I wasn’t granted an ARC so I’m just going to have to wait by the sidelines and read reviews and just do grabby hands everytime I see it on the blogosphere until it officially releases, lmao! Hope you have a great week ahead, Christy! πŸ™‚
