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. 

Happy New Year! I cannot believe it's 2016 - where did last year go? 

How did you all celebrate New Year? Being the selectively social person that I am, this was how I rang in the new year:
Chasing River was my last read of 2015, and a 5 star one at that! Not a bad way to end the year, if I do say so myself. 

We're finally getting that cold weather that's been MIA the past two months. It's been in the mid-low 50s the past few days, with the coming week showing everything from 52 to 70. Nice! 
These temps have had me rocking jeans, a slouchy, vintage-esque long sleeve, and a fishtail braid. I love it. 

A fairly decent step week, I think! I've felt pretty crappy the past couple days (I'm fine, just that time of the month), but still got in at least 10,000 steps. It helps that those two pups above keep me on my toes; they trade off on being my running partner.

1.5 stars.
I FINISHED!!! Good god, what a train wreck. Review should be up this week! I have no idea how this was 600+ pages.

I loved this! Now I'm off to Ireland to find a River. ;)

Currently Reading

Ugh, these covers are atrocious. That said, I'm just over halfway through and really enjoying it! Much better than book one. 

Only 5 chapters in, but I really like this one!

What Will I Read Next?

Um...good question. Maybe one of these?

I want to burn these covers.

  1. Chasing River was a great book. Glad to hear you ended the year with an awesome book. Mine was a total dud. :( wah waaah. Hopefully your first book of 2016 is just as great as Chasing River.

  2. Glad you ended 2015 with a five star read! That's great. :)

  3. Happy New Year!!

    I'm glad you're enjoying Rule so far. Loved that book!

    Great steps!! You're still rocking it!

  4. That is awesome you ended 2015 with a great book! That series is one my need to read asap list. I liked Rule quite a bit but the series got old for me by the end. And those covers are really bad!!! Have a great week!!

  5. I need to read this series by K A Tucker, a few books I listened to of hers really appealed and I can see your 5 star ratings! Er is that a 1.5 star rating. Don't think I've seen one of those before!!

  6. It's always great to read a 5-star novel to end the year - I am glad that it worked out so well for you. I also made sure that the first book I read in 2016 was a 5-star read - Mary Oliver's Felicity. :)

  7. Your New Year's Eve looks very cozy...and perfect. I must check out K. A. Tucker, as I keep seeing books that look sooo good.

    Enjoy your week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  8. Happy New Year's. I spent my night doing some reading than watching the ball drop. I love the Patrica Briggs books. I try to read them as soon as she comes out with a new one.
    You can see mine here:

  9. Hoping to get to Chasing River on audio shortly. Glad it was a 5 star read for you.

  10. Chasing River looks good.

    I see you had a quiet New Year's Eve just like me. :)

    Have a great reading week.
