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

Hey, ladies!

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. 

Kind of a rough week here; work was pretty minimal (only three days, but yesterday was looong), and good thing too since I've been sick since Tuesday. It's a really weird bug/sickness: very queasy, very upset stomach, chilly, exhausted, and incredibly achy. It's getting better, but it's taking too long to clear out of my system. I was even sick on Friday, which was my birthday. Damn. 
Okay, I'll stop whining now. ;)

On the brighter side, I got an adult coloring book (I mean one for adults, not one that's nothing but smutty coloring pages, haha) for my birthday, and I see the hype now. It's so calming and fun! It's also a great time to knock out some audiobook reading.

As you can imagine, not a good step week! It hurts to move, and it wasn't feasible on Wednesday...or Thursday too much.

Read This Week

4 stars!
Light, fluffy, sexy and amusing.
3.5 stars!
Much better than the first book, and much better when you skip through so. many. flashbacks.

Currently Reading

Made some good headway on this one and am about 420 pages in. Enjoying it, minus Lissa. That chick is useless.
Not liking this as much as Big Rock, but still enjoyable. About three hours left in the audiobook.
That cover though....
I love this author. She has the ability to pull me into the story from the very first page. I don't want to put it down!

What Will I Read Next?


  1. I hope you feel better soon!

    I totally agree with you about Lissa from Vampire Academy.. I HATED her. I just couldn't.. I found myself skimming her parts.

    Right now I'm kind of in a reading slump. I read A Court of Mist and Fury and it's about a million times better than ACOTAR and now I'm just having a hard time getting into other books. LOL! I ended up picking up the long awaited sequel to one of my favorite "childhood" fantasy books and the sequel is terrible.. Like they forgot to edit it or something.. I wonder if it's self published!? Anyways, sorry for the ramble! :D

  2. Oh no! I hope you get to feeling better. I'm glad you're enjoying your adult coloring book. I need to buy one--they're all over Walmart.

    I didn't hate Lissa's character, but I didn't really care about her all that much, haha! I hope this week goes better for ya!

    My Sunday post!

  3. I hope you feel better soon. It seems like a lot of people are getting sick lately - and on your birthday too! No fun!!

    Have a great week.

  4. I haven't gotten into the colouring book thing. I tried but stressed about colouring outside the lines etc... So - not too relaxing for me. But I know so many people who love it.

    I had a week like that at work last week. Only three days for me as well but it dragged as I was waiting on stuff so everything felt like it was moving in slow motion!

  5. Aw man sorry you have been sick - especially on your birthday! I love the coloring books I just never have time to really do them but they are so relaxing. Hope you have a great week!

  6. oh no, I'm sorry you've been sick and hope you're feeling better! And on your birthday, that sucks. Happy belated birthday!!

  7. Can't wait to see Smut review :D Hope you're feeling better!
