Feeling hot hot hot!

I’m linking this post to Sunday Post, Stacking the Shelves, and It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

 

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Independence day last week. We pretty much stayed home and laid low. Our pup goes nuts barking at fireworks, and since they were throwing them off a block away from our house, we decided to try our best to tire him out. Which mean runs (I’m not a runner), and taking him to the dog park (where no one was there with their dog). Ha! It apparently worked though because we were able to sit on our couch and watch the fireworks out our front window while holding the pup and all he pretty much did was grumble and throw off a few barks. Id’ consider that a success.

We are currently going through a bit of a heatwave here in San Diego. It’s been in the 100’s for the last couple of days. This morning I woke up to it already being 80, and yet the weather channel still says the high with only be 92… yeah right!

Fun news! The Mister and I got our volunteer schedule from Comic Con! We will be volunteering on Preview Night which means that we get to choose a day pass for any day of the convention to go back and attend. Usually they’ve only allowed us to volunteer during CC hours, which means we volunteer during the convention and then after our 3 hour shift we are allowed to go in and explore for the day. Getting to work before the convention is in full swing allows us to get a full day badge and I can’t wait! It will more than likely be our last CC since we are moving a few hours away next month.

I huge thank you goes out to Karen from For What It’s Worth Reviews for sending me her copy of The Handsome Girl & Her Beautiful Boy.

 

 

Read last week


Nyxia Unleashed is the second book in the Nyxia series. The kids have made it to the alien planet but just like on the ship ride over, the people in charge haven’t been honest with them as to what’s really going on. It was a great continuation of the story.

My Commander was rough. I wound up not finishing it. This book was for the romance book club I just joined and I pushed through longer than I would have because of that. The heroine is supposed to be in her mid 30’s but behaves like a preteen. Not to mention the hero is about 700 years old and also behaves like an adolescent. Everything about this story was immature and I found myself rolling my eyes at the absurdity of it all more times than I could count.

Wild Hunger is the spin-off series to the Chicagoland Vampires. It was great getting to see some of the original characters, but I really liked Elisa character. Not to mention the brewing romance between her and her childhood friend/annoyance. Just like in the previous series, someone is causing havoc and turmoil between the supernaturals and this time it’s Elisa who decides to find out who it is and stop them.
