The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Ahh, break time is over. I posted last week, but still wasn’t around much. I entered the new year super sick, but I wasn’t letting that hold me back from a trip to SoCal. It was raining like crazy, but it was still a lot of fun. It was like we had Disneyland and Universal Studios to ourselves. I’m kind of paying for it now though, because the sickness is going strong. So worth it.

The rest of this post consists of three weeks of stuff.

  1. And I Darken sounds so good but I hesitate to request it because I disliked everything the author has written in the past! I’m excited for Walk the Edge and Ruined though! Both sound excellent!
    I’m sorry to hear about your sickness though! That’ an awful way to start the year.
    Feel better soon and have a lovely week! <3

      Aw, that’s too bad. I’ve loved all the books of hers I’ve read. And thanks, Nick. Hope I can shake the sickness soon.

  2. Disney is always fun even in the rain. Nice pics!

    Love that Halestorm video! I’m not familiar with them but I’ll be checking them out. Glad some people are still rocking. Her voice kinda reminds me of Sass Jordan (sorta).

    This is the first time I got to experience it in the rain, and it was definitely my 2nd favorite D-land trip.

    Gotta love females who can seriously rock!

  4. Wow, a stack of new reading there – which will keep you busy. I’m glad you enjoyed Disney. My bro, SIL and niece spent 5wks in the US and did the Disney thing for most of it. My niece is a huge fan and has a gig as a princess at Shanghai Disney which is opening in a few months.

      She’ll love it. A friend of mine worked there through high school. She loved it so much that she continued traveling 4 hours to work there during the weekends when she moved for college. lol.

  5. Sorry you’re not feeling better, Christy πŸ™ Hopefully, you’ll shake this sickness with some rest and taking care of yourself!
    Your haul is awesome! And the way you’ve lined up those covers make a beautiful caleidoscope of colors.
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

  6. I am glad that you had a great time at Disneyland but hate to hear that you have started the year off being sick. Hopefully you can spend the rest of the year feeling great! You grabbed some great books for this week’s post! I am so excited to see Brother on sale today. I loved that book but I had checked it out from the library. I bought it as soon as I saw the sale this morning because I know it is one that I will want to read again.

  7. I think one of the times we went to DL it was raining and we did California Adventure (right when it opened!) but a lot of the rides were closed. It’s true – it’s so cool to do it b/c it’s so empty. I LOVE the picture of the mountains with the rain behind it! Thank you for sharing it, I really do miss those hills…. *sad dance again* HA!

    And I Darken?? I’m checking it out… what made you grab it? Curious.

    • Christy

      I’ve been to Dland many times and friends who live down there have told me going when it rains is the best time, but this was the first time it just happen to be raining when I went. Out of all the times I’ve been, this was my 2nd favorite … because of the rain. Never thought I’d say something like that.

      I grabbed And I Darken w/o reading the blurb because I’ve loved everything I’ve read by the author so far.

  8. So sorry to hear you’ve been sick. It seems like there’s something really going around right now. The trip to Disney sounds fun! I love when the park isn’t super jammed. I’ve never been to Disneyland but I’ve been to Disney World several times and really want to go back soon. Enjoy your new books! I like Heather Graham but haven’t read Phantom Evil though I have read the more recent books in the series. Have a great week!
