Sunday Post: 73rd Month in Review Edition

June 29, 2014 Sunday Post 7

sunday-post2The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~

~ It’s a chance to share news~

A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

 

 

 

Wow… June! Summer has hit us! YAY! Threats of sky and sea

I say yay as I sit inside an air conditioned room, cause seriously, it’s hot!

This month brought on a ton of great reads but my favorites were:

I also read Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock and I think that was my favorite for the MONTH! But sadly that review will not be up for a while. The review is up on Goodreads though!  It is very serious but was so emotional, and ohhhh so good!

Book Club for this month was chosen by my Mother-in-Law. Sometimes I worry that I’m in the wrong book club. These gals always choose crazy psychological and political thrillers. Really not my thing. This month we’re reading The Golden Crystal by Nick Thacker and The Other Boleyn Girl by Phillipa Gregory (which I AM excited about). Should be interesting!

I also freaking bought PiYo!! I’m so seriously excited about this! I have not done yoga much in the past few years but I love Chalene Johnson. This girl kills me but always in a good way. Really looking forward to starting this today.

How was your June? Are you ready for the summer?

So many cool things are happening around the blogisphere soon (and going on NOW)! I’m already super excited!

        I actually watched the “how to” beginner’s portion and omg IT was 40 minutes! I’m glad I did though because holy crap… Chalene is serious! Some of the harder moves are so awesome but I already told my OCD self that it will take probably a year or more of intense exercise to get there! Which means I also have to commit! 😀

      • Christina

        That is a good excuse but I hope you’re doing okay! But yeah, I do not have a good excuse. I have a hubby and pups that want to get outside!

      I’m intrigued by the PiYo. It’s been far too long since I’ve exercised regularly and I’m definitely feeling it. Sounds like you’ve read some great books. I definitely want to try Secrets of a Viscount and Body in the Woods. Have a great week!

        Body in the Woods really shocked me! It was one that I wanted because of the cover (yes I do this way too much) although the synopsis did sound interesting. I went into it and just loved it! Even with it being a mystery. I hope you enjoy if you try it!

      Here in SE England it never really gets that hot to be honest, 80’s and if we are very lucky, 90’s – I don’t think I could have it that hot though. We can have bad luck and summers can be very cold and rainy. Saying that, I just had to go indoors from the porch because my laptop was almost shutting down – too hot.
      Enjoy your books.
