The Sunday Post #57 - 21st August 2016



Welcome to my Sunday Post, a weekly meme hosted by Kimberley over at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer . Join me as I ramble about my week in and out of the blogosphere.



Hello, how you doing?

It has been a week of crazy weather, rain peeing down one minute and gorgeous sun the next.  I hate it.  I hate weather like this, I wish it would just sort itself the hell out and decide exactly what it is.

In other news over the last couple of weeks, my 10 month old car broke down, I was not pleased but it is fixed now but still do they not build things to last these days?

My book reading has been, like my blogging a bit lax mainly because I am tired and usually fall asleep drooling on my book and kindle.  I need a holiday and thankfully next month one is coming up.

I did however manage to find time to read, nay devour Gemina, I was made up to get an ARC and I loved every minute of this amazing read which is just as great as Illuminae.  The only downside, well it is an unfinished proof, a lot of the graphics are not there but I think the finished article will be immense.  I hope to review soon.

Anyway have a lovely week and happy reading book bunnies!
Well actually last two weeks since I didn't Sunday Post last week.


2015 - I reviewed You are never weird on the internet by Felicia Day

  1. It's been HOT here but today we had rain sheet down and tornadoes in the area... no damage here but trees down and roofs off not too far away. Crazy weather. My reading has slacked with the Olympics on but I'm keeping up, so I'm cool with that.

    I have Gemina jealousy, but glad to hear it was good! :)

    1. Tornadoes sounds really scary, stay safe out there!

  2. I know what you mean about falling asleep. I'm only half way through a book I've been reading this week. I keep falling asleep on it after a few chapters, and it's really good, so that's not the problem. Sorry to hear about the car. At least you were able to get it fixed, but still. It's way too early to be having problems.

  3. What the heck? Glad your car is fixed, but lame it did that so soon. Hope it doesn't give you anymore troubles.

  4. Sorry to hear about your car - I hate it when that happens, because it takes away your trust in its reliability:(. Here's hoping it was just a stupid teething problem and it will now behave itself for the duration! And I sympathise deeply over the weather - living in a country with a LOT of wayward, unpredictable weather fronts, I regularly shout at the window. Himself comments that I shouldn't get so worked up over something I can do nothing about - and I reply that's why I'm so angry! Have a great week and - hopefully - get a chance to rest...

    1. I know, the weather is the one thing we can't control, it was beautiful here for all of two hours then it poured down and the sky went black as night, and it is supposed to be summer!

  5. Oooh J D Robb, I like! For me, this time of year makes it hard to stay inside and blog. I can read a lot no matter where I am though.

  6. I am so relived to hear you loved Gemina! I guess I should go ahead and pre-order it now. I can't wait to read your review. Weather here has been wonky as well. We decided no matter what it looks like we still ride the motorcycles when we have time. Like this morning when it looked like it was sure to rain. The wind was cool (not blisteringly hot) and we didn't see any rain. Sorry to hear about your car, that sucks!
    Have a good week!

  7. I have an ARC of Gemina from BEA, but have already preordered the finished book since I will want all the graphics. We have had our car for five years with no issues. *quickly knocks on wood* Hope your week is simply amazing!

    1. Yep that was the only bad thing about the ARC was all the "coming soon" missing images but apart from that it was amazing!

  8. Glad your car is fixed but how annoying! I'm finally getting some reading done but I went through a long stretch where it felt like I was doing nothing but falling asleep every time I picked up a book. That thing about jogging is too funny. I so agree. Have a great week!

    1. I'm starting to read a bit more now but all I want to do is sleep!

  9. Ha! I love that quote about jogging. I took up jogging last year and hated it. I mean, I loved being able to eat a brownie after a run and not feel guilty about it, but I hated the actually running part.

    1. The running part sucks but I wish I could do it more often!

  10. Sorry about the car troubles :-/ Glad you got it fixed though. And I get you about the weather. Rain isn't always that bad, but when the weather is just all over the place and you don't even know what it's going to be ten minutes from now, that's just frustrating because you can't even plan anything or figure out what to wear or do!

    Glad you enjoyed your ARC of Gemina! Have a great week and enjoy the rest of your new books :-)

  13. I follow that workout...reading in bed until my arms hurt.

    Enjoy your week; hope you catch up on sleep and relaxation, and have some fun along the way. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  14. Love the quote at the end - reading in books really DOES work your arms. Non-readers just don't know. Sorry about your car! I'm glad it's fixed now, but that's awful it broke down so soon. Cars...ridiculous!

  15. I think we had a bit of your weather last week here as well. So much rain and temperatures dipping to 15-16 Celcius. And now we are apparently having a heat wave. Seriously? I just want a steady 20-22 Celcius with a nice sun. That sounds like a good Summer to me.

    Sorry your car broke down. :(

    1. A steady week of sun would suit me fine!!

  16. Glad you've been enjoying Gemina! Seems like you've been busy, so busy that it's hard to stay up and awake to read by the end of it! Hope you can get more energy this time round x

  17. Ugh that's bad about your car! :/ I hope it's not a reoccurring problem. And oooh GEMINA. I'm so so excited for it, heeh. I've got the Illuminae audiobook on reserve at the library so I can refresh myself before it comes out. #need

    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!

  18. How on Earth did I miss this?????? Sorry aboiut your weather. It was just about like that here at that time, too. Our weather straightened out. I hope yours did too. I looked at The Return Of the Young Prince on Goodreads. How intriguing. I will be looking forward to your thoughts. I was thinking about how I missed you posting a regular Sunday Post and then I missed this one on my own. I was a bad girl!
