Sunday Post #92

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.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Another week has gone by. And it's all busy, busy, busy. It's been crazy with allergies once again as well. Last weekend I slept most of it to get through. This weekend, well, it's unbelievably hot and muggy here. The weather is terrible. So don't go outside! Sounds like a plan to me. I've some family stuff to do but once I'm home, I'm home.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Fit Booker:

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

How did I do last week... I did walk/jog on the tread mill for 42 minutes and did about 2.6 miles. And I cut grass for 1 1/2 hours as well.

It seems I will be starting over with episode one on Zombie Run. *sigh* Dummy me never signed into and created an accout with the app and my phone went on the blink so I got a new one. I lost all the work of the three episodes I did, yes a whole wopping three lol.

Well, at least I know what to do with it now. ;)

Episode 1: Made it to Abel Township.
I'm on a mission, but my helicopter is shot down by a rocket! Who has a rocket launcher!?! Who would be shooting me down? But I out run the zombies and collect items, along with a valuable box of research, for Abel Township.

I like this app as it's one I can use outside or on the treadmill. You can use a gps or set your stride length for it to track your steps and determine how far you have gone. I, of course, use the stride length as I'm on a treadmill. You can also set it to Abel Townships musis, which comes later, or to use your music tracks or Spotify for music when they are not talking to you. I use Spotify.

You can set whether you'd like zombie chases or not. If you do, you have to out run the zombies that you hear near you. If you don't out run them, you lose items you have picked up along the way (like bottles of water, clothing, and other items). I don't do this as I barely shamble along on the treadmill myself. There is no way I could out run zombies, at this point.

Beyond the Veil by Pippa DaCosta
PICK UP AT AMAZON
Goodreads Synopsis:
“They say I’m half a demon, but I like to think of myself as half human, especially as the demons want me dead.”

Charlie Henderson is living a lie. Her real name is Muse and her attempt at a normal life is about to go up in smoke. 

When a half-demon assassin walks into her life, leaving a trail of destruction in his wake, Muse must return to the one man she hoped never to see again and ask for help. The Prince of Greed isn’t known for his charity. The price is high and the cost could tear her apart.

Trapped between the malevolent intentions of a Prince of Hell, an assassin with ulterior motives and her bloodthirsty demon-kin, Muse must embrace the lure of chaos at her core; the demon inside her, in order to survive.

If your ex is the Prince of Greed, you’d better be ready to raise hell.

V & A Shipping by J.R. Murdock
PICK UP AT AMAZON
Goodreads Synopsis:
Joey had no idea what he wanted to do after high school, but he was certain it didn’t involve going into space. It also didn’t include being thrust thousands of years into the future. When he finds himself aboard a spaceship, the S.S. Acid Rat, he’s certain he must be dreaming. 
Vic and June, both also from Earth’s now distant past, assure Joey that he’s not in a dream. He is aboard a shipping vessel that is making a ‘routine’ delivery. For Vic that means being pursued by the local authorities during his planet to planet run. 
There is only little time for Joey to meet the rest of the crew before they’re making the delivery. Once it’s complete, Vic accepts a wager to within twenty-four standard hours with a shipment of beer for the celebration. 
Then things start to get interesting for Joey and the crew of the S.S. Acid Rat. 
The authorities continue their pursuit, one of the crew tries to sabotage the mission, and a blockade impedes their return. Everyone must pull their weight, even the newest shipmate, Joey, who is still trying to deal with his situation. If they don’t make it back in time, they won’t get paid.

Vane has never turned away from an opportunity to seize power. He's spent his life manipulating others for his own gain. So when an ancient castle presents him with a magic ring and a legendary promise, he knows exactly what to do. Use the ring, find the Heir...and betray them at the first opportunity. Lidya is the middle child, neither lovely as her sister not physically able as her brother. She's lived in their shadows all her life and been happy enough there. But when a man called Vane shows up with a magic ring and an insane tale, Lidya's life changes. Before anyone can stop it, she's trapped in a contest that will drag them all on a quest, put one of them on an ancient throne, and could easily cost all of them their lives.
