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 Kathryn at The Book Date where we share what we've read and reviewed over the past week and what we plan to read next. 

I hope everyone had a Happy Halloween! There was no work yesterday, so that was incredibly nice. It was a very hot, humid, and rainy Halloween! Around 4pm that afternoon we went to a little family party that was mostly fun, despite some serious drama. #growup

I still have an annoying, lingering cough, but otherwise have kicked the wretched cold that started last week and let off middle of this week. Not fun!

When my throat hurt last week, I started drinking tea. I don't eat sugar, so cough drops were out. At my tea-crazed sister's prodding, I tried it. I actually like it! Well...I like Irish Breakfast with lemon and honey. And sometimes English Breakfast, but mostly Irish. Everything else tastes like dirt. I enjoy having a cup while I write for the blog, or while I read. It's so comforting!

I can't believe it's November! Not that it feels like it, with the humidity and mid-80s weather. Where did this year go???

I only ran twice this week (it's impossible to run and breath at the same time with a sore throat and stuffy nose!), but did improve my steps from last week. I did 227.3 miles of walking and a bit of running during October. Yay for that!

Currently Reading
Only a little ways into this, but liking it so far! Mercy's voice is easy to slip into. I do wish urban fantasy/paranormals had shorter chapters, though!

Not sure what I'm thinking about this one. The heroine is a complete doormat, and the hero is...either an idiot, or just an asshole. Maybe both. 

What Will I Read Next?

  1. Glad to hear you're feeling better!! I know how it is trying to run when not feeling that great - but you still did awesome with your step count!!

    I've never been much of a tea drinker, but have always wanted to try more of it.

    I hope you have a great week! Enjoy your books - I am anxious to see what you'll think of Lux!

  2. Glad you are feeling mostly better. I enjoy tea sometimes with just a touch of honey. When I am sick though that is what I use as well. Glad to see you loved Menagerie and can't wait to read the review. Hope you enjoy your upcoming books!

  3. I've been meaning to read Patricia Briggs' UF series. That is, I read the first book a long time ago, so I want to pick them up again. I'll be on the lookout for your review.

  4. You did great on the walking/running!! And oooh so glad to see 5 star for Menagerie, I need to read that one soon.

  5. Blah, I hate drama. Glad you had a nice Halloween otherwise. I'm curious to see your review for Menagerie. It looks like a fun read!


  6. Everything else tastes like you are too funny. I have a lingering cough is annoying. Hope it passes soon. Have a wonderful week!

  7. I really like the cover for The Fall Up. I'm glad you enjoyed it :) Lux let me down but I hope you like it!

  8. I really need to get ahold of Menagerie, it sounds so good. And I love the cover for The Fall Up. I haven't been exercising at all, the only steps on my Fitbit are from daily working. I did download a couch to 5K app that I need to actually use! Have a great week!
