Sunday Post #170 (4/10/16) – Ugh

Ugh. That’s pretty much all I want to say about this week. At least the end of it anyway. Let’s just say that rain + my son driving = totaled vehicle. Not cool. He’s perfectly fine, though. Now it’s time to deal with lovely insurance and all that crap.

Anyway … I made a note on my calendar of something I wanted to mention in this post, but now I have no idea what my note even means. This happens more than I want to admit. -sigh-

On the Blog

  • Waylaid by Kim Harrison (review) – A fun little mashup.

Books Acquired

For Review:

I have never been so excited for a book like I am for City of Mirrors. Yeaaahhh, buddy! I haven’t read anything by Erdrich in many, many years, so I’m looking forward to LaRose.

larosecity of mirrors


A few price drops to cheap or free, except Morning Star.


The 2nd season of Fear the Walking Dead starts tonight. Hopefully it’ll help with my bitterness from last weeks season finale of TWD. Eff you, Scott Gimple.


Have a great week!

      Well, if you wait until it’s on Netflix, then it should end so badly for you if you can go right into the next season once it’s out.

  1. Oh shit! Sorry to hear that- glad your son is okay. Yikes.

    LOL yeah that finale sucked. I’m so over the people running that show. Is fear the walking Dead good? I’m going to watch the first season I guess… Owl and the City of Angels caught my eye since I just got Owl and the Japanese Circus. It looks fun…

      Thanks, Greg.

      Dude, that finale had such potential. When I saw him trying to justify it on The Talking Dead, it just pissed me off more.

  2. Oh no! πŸ™ Sorry about the totaled car, but I’m glad your son is safe. Good luck with dealing with the insurance!
    I need to read the Justin Cronin series. I love those covers!
    Lots of angry fans over that TWD finale! I’m mad for all of your sake!
    Have a good week, Christy!

  3. Sorry to hear about your son’s car accident but what a relief he wasn’t hurt. It is a bugger to have to deal with the insurance stuff though!

    Hope next week is a better one Christy! xx

  4. Oh no! Sorry to hear about your car :-/ but at least your son is ok. I imagine that must’ve been scary.

    I too downloaded When the Crows Fly Low because I saw it on Daniela’s blog, but I haven’t quite decided if I want to read it… I normally stick to SFF. But this way at least I have in case I decide I want to. And that line of reasoning is exactly why I have literally hundreds of books on my Kindle that I have not read lol.

      lol! I was happy to see When the Crows Fly Low was free after reading your review. I’m getting ready to watch FTWD in 10 minutes! Woohoo!

  5. Sounds like a rough week. I hope this week will be better for you! πŸ˜‰
    β€˜When The Crows Fly Low’ is one of my favorite books. It’s really an incredible read!! Definitely a great purchase if you ask me!
    Happy Reading!

  6. So sorry to hear of your son’s accident, though glad he came through unscathed. I hope all the resultant admin goes through as smoothly as is possible. I’m glad you enjoyed the Red Rising trilogy – I thought it an extraordinary read – such a roller-coaster… I’ve had The Passage on my TBR pile since forever, probably because it’s the size of a brieze block, but The City of Mirror looks very intriguing – I’ll be interested to hear what you make of it. In the meantime, I hope you have a better week!

  7. I’m so glad your son is okay!!! I’ve totaled my share of vehicles so I’d say it’s a right of passage *pounds chest*. Makes you strong! Yeah, still a pain in the ass to deal with. I remember the life stopping every time it rained in So Cal, “Oil slick roads!!!”

    It’s weird you picked up 7 years… I was just looking at reading that one. I’ve owned it since it came out 3 yrs ago. Weeeeirrrrd…

  8. Glad your son is okay but I do not envy you the insurance mess. Aren’t older kids fun! I kind of thought when they got self sufficient they’d be way easier but instead I’m actually more stressed. Still glad he’s okay. I imagine that was not a fun phone call to get. Hope next week is great!

  9. Sigh…trying again to comment! Your blog says I have too many URLs! LOL

    Sorry about your son’s accident…but glad he is okay. Here’s to a better week ahead.

    I am ogling LaRose…to find my weekly updates, go to my Curl up and Read blog…or find me at Kimberly’s blog.

  10. I’m sorry about the totaled car! That totally sucks! Glad your son is okay!
    Great book haul! The Seven series by Dannika Dark is amazing! One of my favorites! Hope this week is better and good luck with the insurance company!

  11. Glad your son is OK! I’m crossing my fingers that I get approved for City of Mirrors. It has been too long, and I may reread the other 2 books next week, if I have time. Starting Golden Son next week also, so that I can get Morning Star. Hope you have a better week! I’m gonna set my DVR for FTWD, because Game of Thrones comes back tonight and I’m super ready. Happy Sunday!

    I am glad your son is OK, though the car isn’t. Hope the insurance works out for you as best as it can. I hope you have a better week this week.

  13. Oh, Ms. Christy, I’m so sorry to hear about your son. I’m glad that he’s okay. Now, how old is this son again? Hehe πŸ˜‰ Enjoy your pretty new books! But don’t even get us started on that Walking Dead cliffhanger — argh.

  14. Can I tell you how much I laughed over you not understanding your note to yourself?!? Yeah, that *never* happens to me! LOL I’m sorry about your son having an accident but at least he’s fine. πŸ˜€ Great books you picked up! I’d like to have the Owl title. πŸ™‚ I hope this week is treating you well, Christy!
