Sunday Post #149 (11/1/15) – Black Hearts & Warm Days

Posted October 31, 2015 | 44 Comments


The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Can you believe November is here? It certainly hasn’t felt like it with temps in the 80s, but it should drop a little next week. Unfortunately. Time falls back an hour and I hate it. I hate that it gets dark so early. Hate it. Hate. It.

I read 10 books in November, and I reached my 2015 goal of 120 books.

My son’s XC team got first in their conference title. Not bad for a bunch of freshmen (college) who had a bit of adjusting to do in the beginning. Next up is sectionals, then hopefully state championships.

      That sucks about adjusting. I don’t like this time of year though. I’m all about the hot weather. πŸ˜€

    Oh my god!!! Georgina Kincaid is one of my all time favourite series!! The whole series rocks. I assume it’s your first time reading it so I REALLY hope you enjoy it. It’s like one of those series were it’s like your baby :’) makes me so emotional. Richelle Mead is the best.

    A huge congrats on reaching your reading goal! 120 books is totally awesome!

    Also congrats to your son! The state championships would be mind-blowing.

    Have a great week,

  2. I hate it when it gets dark earlier, too. It feels like the days disappear even quicker, and it’s a drag to leave class when it’s already night out πŸ™
    Your new books look great, Christy! I’ve read Hanover House and I enjoyed it – hopefully, you will, too.
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

  3. You’ve already read November 9 ! It was chosen to be the november book for Kimba’s FB book club, I just pre-ordered it this morning. I hate it too when I have to go to work when it’s still night and come back home and it’s already night, what’s the point of getting up ? Still, I can’t complain, there’s a beautiful Indian summer weather these days – gorgeous ! Enjoy your sunday πŸ˜‰

  4. I not only hate that it gets darker earlier but that my kid’s sleep is all jacked up. Good luck to your son’s XC team for sectionals! I hope you enjoy Hanover House. I thought it was pretty good and a fun start to a series. Have a great week!

  5. I’m one of the weirdos that actually likes the time change. I kind of like it getting dark earlier for some reason though I probably wouldn’t enjoy it if got dark at 4:30 for months on end. Congrats to your son and the rest of his team! That’s fabulous! Hanover House is free?? Must go check that out. Have a great week!

      Thanks, Ali. Now he’s trying to get over being sick before the meet on Friday.

      Blah, anything below say … 78, I’m not happy with. I prefer 80s and 90s.

  6. Last weekend our clocks went back and it’s been so dark early this week, I don’t like it either. It isn’t too cold yet here. Congrats for reaching your goodreads goal! I also reached mine, but I set it pretty low. I really enjoyed the Georgina Kincaid series, now I am tempted to re-read the series. Have a great week!

  7. Congrats to your son, that’s impressive. I hate the time change too. The sun went down here last night at 4:54. My kids were ready to go to bed at 6:30. They were confused. I am looking forward to reading November 9!
