The Sunday Post/It's Monday, What Are You Reading?

Hey, everyone!

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. It's Monday, What Are You Reading is a fun weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey where we share what we've read and reviewed over the past week and what we plan to read next.

This was a pretty good week! Not too much work, and since there's the faintest air of maybe-someday-there-might-be-fall-in-Florida-in-theroy-eventually-maybe, I walked/ran roughly 5 miles every day on average. 68,651 steps as of yesterday, so yay for that!

7 weeks of running. It's finally become my routine and not a chore. That's not to say it's my favorite activity (because trust me, it's not), but it's steadily getting better. It's becoming to where I'm happy that my body can do this with only slight effort, rather than having me bent double and wheezing after 20 seconds. I run in the mornings, and the barely noticeably pre-fall weather has helped hugely. Running in the 100+ degree heat and humidity is not fun, y'all. 

Today there's a bit of work in the early morning, then a nice walk around the picturesque beach town with this little cutie:

My photography model and baby, Nola.

For Review

Recently Finished New Books

4 stars. So glad I continued after the first one! I love Curran, that cocky and smart ass sonovabitch, and Kate grew on me hugely in this one. 

4 stars. A very surprisingly enjoyable full length novel. BDSM is fascinating, and this one showcased that quite well.

4.5 stars. In one word: Epic. In three: give me Curran!  Ilona Andrews is truly gifted when it comes to fight scenes. 

3 stars. Short, sexy fun.


Currently Reading

I swear, the pages of this series are laced with crack.  I finished the third, and then immediately picked up the fourth. They're addictive, and just keep getting better! 

What Will I Read Next?

Have a good Sunday, everyone!

  1. Yay for running going well. And that dog - SO CUTE!!! I have Ten Tiny Breaths and need to get to it so can't wait to hear what you think - Have a great week!

  2. Your dog is adorable! I'm not very good at running and I definitely wouldn't be able to in that kind of heat. Hope it cools down for you soon. Here in Ohio it is definitely cooler this weekend (60s).

    Hope you enjoy your reading!

  3. Look at all of those lovelies. We like many of the same authors. I'm your neighbor in Alabama and enjoying these cooler mornings. Happy reading and running!

    My Sunday Post -

  4. So many awesome book this week..go you. Glad the running is going good. I liked Ten Tiny Breaths but her next series with Burying Water is my favorite.

  5. Aw, your dog is SO cute. That's awesome you're getting into the routine of running. I wish I was good at it, but it just never works for me. I need to start walking or something more though. I'm liking the fall weather.

  6. Love both the Kate/Curran series and the K.A. Tucker books. I miss Cat and Bones, maybe a reread is in my future. Have a great week.

  7. What a cute picture!! I'm glad to hear running is going so well! I'm glad it's cooled off enough to be tolerable for you.

    Hope you have a good week and enjoy your reads!

  8. What an adorable doggy! Yay for the running - I tried and failed, I need to try again!

    Have a good week!
