Sunday Post #187 (9/18/16) – Way Down We Go

Sunday Post heart2

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

A busy two weeks, yet it seems like a whole lot of nothing when I get on here to type this up. But seriously, where the hell is September going? I can’t believe we’re halfway through.

The Sunday Post appears to have turned into an every other week thing for me. For now, anyway. I’m slacking on blogging and reading still, but I’m hoping I’ll have more time in November. I’m debating whether or not I should just let the blog hibernate for a few weeks. We’ll see.

The annual HoHoHo Read-A-Thon hosted by Kim will be in November, so sign-up!

For Review:

Uhh, what happened? I’ve been so good lately with restricting myself with review book, but I couldn’t resist these. Besides, I read two of them already. And no way in hell am I go to pass up a Ann Ahlborn book.



I’m feelin’ it.

Have a great week!

  1. I had a slow reading and writing month or two recently as well Christy. I ended up skipping the Sunday Post for a few weeks and rejoining when I was ready (and had something to report).

    It’s annoying when you feel really busy but can’t identify what took all of the time and energy!!!

  2. Yeah all this stuff- fall and everything else, the holidays, it’s all coming up quick (even though I’n fine with fall). Crazy how fast time is going by. And yeah I love how a week can feel so busy or eventful and then Sunday Post time I’m like- uh, what did I do all week lol? Was Bright Smoke Cold Fire good? I love the cove…

    Have a great week.

  3. I can’t believe how time is flying either. I have to say I appreciate the cooler nights, though – I’m sleeping much better.
    If you think a blog break is a good thing, maybe you do need one? I guess you’ll figure it out one way or the other πŸ™‚
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

  4. The real question is, where is the entire *year* going??! If you already read two of the review books you got, then you’re totally on top of things and psh you deserve to take some new ones πŸ˜‰ It’s like, for every one you read, you’re allowed 3 more. There’s no flaw in that plan. Just trust me.

    I like the song! I know I’ve heard it before though. In an ad maybe? Or a TV show? Somewhere.

    Anyway, have a great week!

  5. Ha ha! I LOVE Kaleo’s Way Down We Go – it was on an ad, so I tracked down who is was and Himself listened to the album, which we have now bought:)). I MUST get hold of the Ilona Andrews series, it looks just up my street! Have a good week, though like you, I could do with September slowing down, somewhat… This is my Sunday Poast

  6. I have a couple of Christmas books so I will be signing up for HoHoHo this year and giving it a try. πŸ™‚ Great haul! I requested The Devil Crept In after seeing it on another blog so fingers crossed I get it if not oh well. πŸ™‚ All your books look great! Enjoy!

    Have a great weekend!

    I looked up the ahlborn book but it sounds just like the other one . …

  8. I considered signing up for the read-a-thon but unfortunately already had stuff scheduled around that time. I will have to remember for next time tho! And I will definitely be checking in with everyone else’s lists because I love Christmas books. lol! Hope you have a great week!

    I know were did the time go? If you need a break, take one and come back refreshed. The Graveyard Apartment looks so creepy. I checked it out on GR page. I hope you enjoy your new books. I liked the Kaleo song. Have a good week:)

  10. I understand why you sometimes don’t feel like doing the Sunday Post every week. I go through periods of not posting at all, then I try to catch up by commenting on everyone’s threads, then I get overwhelmed again…it’s just a vicious cycle. I’ve always wondered how people find the time to blog hop AND read! πŸ™‚

  11. Oooo you got me obsessed with Roni Loren Christy, so I definitely need to check out her new one! *runs off to Amazon* Looking forward to your thoughts on the Rosamund Hodge title too, I adored Cruel Beauty, but the second book (the name escapes me) got pretty mixed reviews so I didn’t jump on it or this one.

  12. I’m not all that behind on reading, but I am behind on blogging: writing reviews, building the posts, visiting and commenting on other blogs. It’s just a lot, but I love it all. I’m deep in ARC right now too, not to mention that I have four library audios with more waiting on me. I’m glad I can go through audios quickly. LOL I hope you’re having a great week.

  13. I sat out last week myself. I just couldn’t drum up the energy and time to spend on my blog. I keep thinking maybe I should take a couple weeks off or so. I imagine it will happen right around the holidays when my mother is in town. It’s impossible to blog when she’s visiting, and it would take the pressure off me to be prepared. Anyway, whatever you decide, I support you. πŸ™‚

    The Graveyard Apartment title and cover have me wanting to look into that one. And The Billinaire Nextdoor has me curious. I like Jessica Lemmon’s work.

    I hope you have a great week, Christy!

  14. I feel you on the blogging front; I can’t seem to get it together enough to post anything. I have 6 reviews that I want to share but everyday I get home and cook or clean or just pick up a book, and I don’t feel like picking up my laptop. My email and Bloglovin feed are so backed up, it’s ridiculous. I’m just now catching up on everyone’s posts.
