Sunday Post #125

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 passed. I did get blog visiting in twice this week. I didn't get to everyone I wanted to visit though. *sigh* I'm trying. I really am.

Kiddo is still doing to therapy three days a week. He's got so much going on with school and the weather finally changing. He's wanting to be outside, but he still needs to do specific exercises and that brace to keep his leg straight and now bending too. We are also taking him to a college tour on Saturday coming. Yes, we are getting to that point with Kiddo. Thinking of college. Ugh. 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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 got to the gym 3 days last week, Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. My usual. With working on lifting equipment then the elliptical for 30 mins.

Waking Up Dead by Margo Bond Collins
PICK UP AT AMAZON
Goodreads Synopsis:
When Dallas resident Callie Taylor died young, she expected to go to Heaven, or maybe Hell. Instead, she met her fate early thanks to a creep with a knife and a mommy complex. Now she's witnessed another murder, and she's not about to let this one go. She's determined to help solve it before an innocent man goes to prison. And to answer the biggest question of all: why the hell did she wake up in Alabama?

The Mainframe by Simone Pond
PICK UP AT AMAZON
Goodreads Synopsis:
A dystopian book series about love and the fight for freedom -- Book 3.

The hunt for Morray continues. Book three picks up seventeen years after the disappearance of former city center leader, Chief Morray. There has been peace among the West Coast regions, but in Ojai Village there is very little peace between Ava and her sixteen-year old daughter Grace. Both have different ideas about what it takes to maintain independence. Grace comes across some digital footprints inside the mainframe, convincing Ava that Morray is back to seek revenge and reclaim control. When Ava goes missing, Grace assembles a motley crew of cadets to go on a search and rescue mission to save her mother and take down Morray. Grace soon learns that independence comes at a price.
 

Transition by S.A. Salidas
PICK UP AT AMAZON
Goodreads Synopsis:
Peace is just a breath between battles for Mira. Hardened by slavery and war, she longs for the simpler life, knowing that it might never be hers to enjoy. There is always another battle waiting to be fought, another foe on the horizon. Peace between humans, vampires, and otherkin may be nothing more than a dream, but Mira holds out hope. 
It is during this brief respite that Mira is gifted one of her greatest weapons. Though it brings with it memories of a time when she was not so jaded, it also comes with a reminder of terrible pain and loss. Awakening deeply hidden emotions within her, if Mira can use this to her advantage, she’ll have a new ally in the next battle to come.

Scala by Christina Bauer
PICK UP AT AMAZON
Goodreads Synopsis:
Nineteen-year-old Myla Lewis has transformed into Great Scala, the only being with the power to move souls out of Purgatory and into Heaven or Hell. Trouble is, a magical object called Lucifer’s Orb is limiting Myla’s abilities. If she tries to move a soul, the Orb’s forcing her to send that spirit straight to Hell.

So, what’s a girl to do? Send innocents to the fiery down-under?

No way. Myla’s gone on a supernatural strike. No souls go anywhere until the Orb’s history. It’s the right thing to do, but Purgatory’s Soul Storage buildings are turning into time bombs. No spirits are moving out, while millions keep coming in. Myla’s determined to find the Orb and send the innocent to Heaven, but she’s running out of time. Soon, the containment fields will burst, releasing a mob of homicidal ghosts.

With Soul Storage ready to explode, Myla’s got enough on her plate without her old enemy, Lady Adair, causing problems. Adair is launching an ingenious campaign to take away everything that Myla holds dear, including Myla’s Angelbound love, Prince Lincoln.

Between their clever ideas and toe-curling kisses, Myla and Lincoln are fighting back. But will they beat the clock or lose everything to Adair’s devious schemes?

    1. Oh thank you Chuckles. It's rough. All he wants to do is run and he's technically not allowed yet. *sigh* It's starting to get to him. But the college thing will be interesting. :)
