Sunday Post

The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. ~ Inspired by the meme In My Mailbox.~ 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 for the week on our blog.

I got some more reading done, though not as much as I would have liked. I did finish up two books that were taking up a lot of space on my nightstand for much too long. I feel behind on my TBR picks, so I had to read June’s before I could move on to July’s…though I’m honestly not really feeling the one my partner picked out for me but we’ll see.

I started doing a bit of exercising and stretching this week as well. I ran a mile and I’m using the Blogilates posts for the Journey to Splits to help get some of my mobility back. Once I feel like my muscles have loosened up some I’ll go back into doing muscle toning and building exercises. I’m also a part of the Hogwarts Running Club, it’s a nice low-key way to get some running in, donate to charity, and get awesome medals for the races you complete. I’m thinking of joining the 90 day run which has a total of 52 miles, and it’s supposed to be the distance between Aberdeen and where the main Hogwarts portion of the film were shot. It’s $35 though, so…I dunno.

  1. I read the first three Clan of the Cave Bear books and really liked the first two (way back in the olden days when they first came out, lol). I liked the third one, but the story had started to get a little stale. I borrowed the fourth book from a friend and remember thinking it was too much of the same thing. I have to come back and read your Invasion of the Tearling review. I had some trouble with the Dystopian parts, but I loved the continuing Fantasy storyline, so it averaged out to about a 3.5 stars for me. I gave Queen of the Tearling 5 stars. Have a fab week. 🙂

    • I think larger longer running series run the risk of doing that, so I tend to space them out quite a bit from each other to try and fight that. I didn’t mind the dystopian parts once I got use to them and it actually answered a lot of my questions from book one.

    The chocolate Chip Cookie Murder sounds fun, or maybe I just like that title! And I’ve always been curious about the Clan of the Cave Bear books- such a cool premise. I like all that prehistoric/ Ice Age stuff though… I’ve almost tackled them a few times, but never have.

    Have a great week. 🙂

    • It’s a cute one, not my favorite but a nice break from the more serious stuff I read. I’ve been really curious too. I’ve owned the paperback of the first two for some time now but haven’t ever made time for them, so maybe the audio will make the easier to tackle.

    I hate that feeling of having a couple of books that just sit there glaring at you. Day after day. Week after week. By the time I get to them I’ve almost got this bizarre prejudice against them through no fault of their own!

  4. Love the sound of the Howgarts Running Club! And running a mile is great, you’ll be surprised just how fast it builds up from that. An Ember in the Ashes is high on my wishlist, hope you love it! And I was tempted by The Clan of Cave Bear on audible as it was on special but I held off for now.

  5. I need to get back to my #ShelfLove books. I hit the jackpot on Netgalley and got a couple of new releases so they are really drawing my attention right now. I hope you have a great week!

    I am a big pilates addict — lately I am allowing my yard work to take over from my cardio as I am really interested in the calorie burn, and when I run it is painful. I am a cardio gym rat. Keep up the positive physical movement thing!

  7. I enjoyed Ember and hope you do too

  8. Christy says:

    Good for you with the working out. Running becomes addictive after a few months of consistently doing it. Then it gets to where it doesn’t feel right when you don’t run. lol. Ugh, hope you get through your books.

  9. I have eight hardbacks sitting on my bedside table begging to be read! I constantly feel guilty for not reading them quickly enough.

    Have a great week!

    The Hogwarts Running Club sounds really cool. I wish I was more into that, but I’ve just never liked running. haha I’ve been reading a lot lately, but there are a few books I’m really trying to get through for reviews in July.


Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed it, leave a comment and tell me what you think.
