Sunday Post #77

The 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 new about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

~~~~~~~~~~

Not much happening. Kiddo is now into track season so not as much running in the evening for training. That's nice as I'm trying to get things done around the house and some reading work done. Which speaking of which, I've overloaded myself again. *sigh* That's so easy to do! But with the calmer evening schedule maybe I can whip through it all. ;) So I'll be busy this week with lots of reading. :)

And I have a few tv shows to get caught up on. So Sunday seems to be a relaxing day, after family visiting and grocery store. *Sigh*

~~~~~~~~~~

The Fit Booker:

Goal:  Workout on Wii Fit (or any form of exercise) 2x's a week. (to feel better and hope to drop a few pants sizes)

How did I do last week... I did two days! This is good. I was hoping for 3 days, but things happen and life goes on. Kiddo and I sat down one night to talk about scheduling classes for next year. But I did get 2 nights on the treadmill. I usually go for between 21 - 25 minutes and rotate from a brisk walk to a jog.

It is relaxing getting this pent up frustration out this way. I do feel better after each session and would love to get up to 3 days a week.

Something to strive for I guess.

Hellsbane by Paige Cuccaro
Goodreads Synopsis:
Twenty-three-year-old Emma Jane Hellsbane just found out she's not human--or, at least, not only human. She's half angel, too, and now Heaven's got a job for her: round up all the Fallen angels and their red-skinned, horned devil-demon minions and boot their butts back into the abyss. Only problem? The demons and their Fallen masters fight back…and they don't fight fair.
Luckily for Emma, she can put a stop to the constant threat of having her head hacked off if she figures out which Fallen angel is her father--and then kill him before he kills her. Of course, in the meantime, she'll have to avoid accidentally seducing her angelic mentor, help an old friend conquer his own Fallen sperm donor, and basically save the world from a cataclysmic divine smack down.
No one said being Heaven's bounty hunter would be easy. But with a name like Hellsbane, Emma Jane was born for the job.

Free Audio Books/Stories:
Space Casey by Christiana Ellis
Synopsis:
Some heroines will steal your heart. This one will steal your wallet. In the future, mankind has expanded to fill the solar system, but when a snarky con-woman steals the wrong spaceship, she finds herself stranded in a distant galaxy. She is humanity's first emissary to a galactic civilization, and all she wants to do is go home. Preferably, without being arrested.

Space Casey - Season 2 by Christiana Ellis
Synopsis:
In this follow-up to the award-winning comedy-science-fiction-audio-drama: "Space Casey", Casey the intergalactic con-artist continues her thrilling tale of adventure, fraud, and time travel!

7th Son by J.C. Hutchins
Synopsis:
7th Son chronicles the story of seven strangers who are assembled after the assassination of the U.S. president. They quickly discover they all appear to be the same man … with identical childhood memories.
Unwitting participants in a human cloning experiment, these “John Michael Smiths” have been gathered to catch the man who murdered the president. Their target? The man they were cloned from; the original John Michael Smith, code-named John Alpha.
Evocative, action-packed, and brimming with conspiracies and mindbending technologies, 7th Son has made an indelible impact in online fiction. Positively reviewed by filmmakers, A-list bloggers, novelists and countless readers, 7th Son is widely considered one of the “must-listen” audiobooks in podcasting.

  2. So much going on! You need those quieter evenings. Space Casey sounds fun.
    I have two stacks of books by my feet screaming at me to finish the reviews. I have all of my notes loaded but still have to polish each review.
