Sunday Post #178 (6/5/16) – Hello June

Posted June 4, 2016 | 40 Comments


The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

June did not enter on a good note. It’s been a trying week, so I’ve been flaky when it comes to blogging. We’ve had an incident in the family, and things aren’t looking good. So I probably won’t be around much for awhile. Sitting around a hospital for long periods of time does provide the opportunity to read, though.

The 1st was my 5th blogoversary. Yay? As often as I’ve contemplated about quitting, I just can’t. Yet. Thank you to all of you who continue to visit and put up with my drivel.

Books Acquired

For Review:

Hello, my pretties …


The Monkees have a new album!! Yes, I’m a big ol freaking dork and love them – ever since I was a lil girl. This song makes me smile.


I watched the trailer as soon as I finished the book. I liked the book, but it looks like the movie will be … better. *gasp*


Have a great week!

      At least Darynda doesn’t make us wait too long between books. She’s pretty good about pumping them out.


  1. I’m sorry there’s been an incident that makes you sit for hours in the hospital, Christy! I’m sending strong and positive thoughts your way <3
    5 years is good, and don't quit, please, please, pretty please with sugar and Swiss chocolate on top!!
    I hope next week will be much better for you, and that June will turn around and be an amazing month. *hugs*

  2. Oh, Christy, I hope things turn out alright. Your family is in my prayers. Happy 5 years! I have thought of quitting so many times, but I just can’t either. It’s my happy place, even if it drives me crazy half the time. πŸ™‚

  3. Happy 5 years! And whatever’s going on, best wishes and thoughts your way. Hang in there!

    I’m kinda keen to see Girl on the Train too, love emily Blunt! I’ll be going to see that… πŸ™‚

  4. I’m so sorry to hear about the rough beginning into June, Christy. I hope things get better for you and whoever is in the hospital.
    Congrats on 5 years! You’re one of my favorites so you can’t leave. EVER!
    I hope you enjoy your books this week and take care of yourself. <3

  5. You know I’m thinking about you. Btw, I meant to tell you: there’s “family” and there’s Family. πŸ™‚ I can’t believe you read Charley already!!! Was it a quick read? I need to jam on her book next πŸ˜‰

    BTW – did you read “And I Darken” yet? I think you got that, right? I’m at 20% and it’s pretty good, imho.

    hang in there… *hug*

      Word. I feel ya about the family thing.

      Yeah, Charley is always a quick read. Goes way too fast. πŸ™

      Dude, yes! I freaking love And I Darken. So good!


  6. So sorry it’s been rough and hope stuff gets better. Congrats on 5 years!! That is a long time but don’t quit – just take a break or two and come back πŸ™‚ I am very excited for The Girl on the Train movie. I think it looks good.

    But also…I didn’t even know the Monkees were still together and alive! You’re right, that song is a head-bopper. I’ll have to tell my mom. They were slightly after her time, but she loves dancing to The Monkees, Neil Diamond, and The Beatles. πŸ™‚

    Congrats on 5 years of drivel that we all clearly enjoy! πŸ˜›
    And now I can’t wait to read Girl on a Train. AND watch it. Movie better than book is like the gold-pooping unicorn of pop culture, so if that happens I will be very thrilled.

      I was born in ’79, so I watched re-runs of their show in the 80’s. I don’t know why I got such a kick out of them going down the street on a bed. lol.

      Thanks, Beth!

    Your family will be in my prayers. It’s great you have been blogging for five years! If you keep blogging, I will keep reading.

  9. Ah, family, they are the ones that really make us hurt sometimes even when it’s unintentional. Wishing you and your family situation well.

    Wow! Congrats on five years. I’ve only visited off and on for a few months, but I love seeing your posts with all your personal style shining through them.

    I got 10th Grave up for this weeks reading. Yes, to more Charley and the gang time.

    Hope this week is better! πŸ™‚
