Sunday Post

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted here @ Caffeinated Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. See rules here: Sunday Post Meme

Well, we listened to our doctor and really unplugged from life for a few days and while we still have loose coughs, I honestly think we have kicked the infections that have plagued us. I cannot believe February is almost behind us and that Take Control begins this week! Did you join? Linky closes on Friday so don’t delay. The idea is to read or listen to as many books on your TBR pile as you can during the month of March. If you’re a blogger, you can build up posts for later dates and just review a few lines on Goodreads. All are welcome.  Stay Caffeinated.

    Glad you guys are feeling better! I also can’t believe we’re pushing March now… crazy. Where did February go? Ah well I’m ready for spring, so I’ll take it…

    Love the Random of the week… 🙂

    Have a great week Kimba!

    Happy to hear you are all doing better. I really would love and need to join Take Control challeneg but it seems everytime I start a challenge I can never finish but in the past I was taking quite a few hiatus from blogging. Look foward to your review for True To You. Seen this author around but have yet to try her. Lol on your Totally Random. That is so true.

  3. Mallory

    YAY! I’m so glad to hear you’re finally feeling better 🙂 Love this week’s random thought as well – that feels like most books that are recommended to me (and that I continue to read).

    I need to get my sign-up post together for the TBR challenge! I’m trying to not buy any books on March, so this feels like a great way to help hold myself accountable 🙂

  4. Karen Blue

    Oh my! It is already nearly March. I still haven’t figured out if I am going to do the Take Back Control this year. I have a lot to do this coming month. I might just lower my number, not that I am getting much reviewed lately. I have been reading a lot, but I am seriously behind on writing the reviews. I like the idea of just writing a few lines on Goodreads, I might just go that route.
    I’m glad to see you picked up Baby Teeth. I read that two weeks ago and I still don’t quite know how to review it. I haven’t sorted out my feelings about it. I was quite addicted to the story though. I guess you’ll see what I mean when you read it.
    Glad to hear you had got some relaxing in this past week. Happy reading!

    I’ve given up conquering my TBR. Utter defeat. I’ll leave this world not having read all the books, dammit.

    Glad you’re doing better!

  6. Sam@WLABB

    It is fantastic news that you are moving towards recovery. With the month you’ve had, I would be glad to bid Feb farewell. TBR is such a loose term for me. It’s such an evolving thing. I have a lot of books I want to read on it, but I do not necessarily own all those books.

    Glad that you and your family are well again. Here the fun of having a cold or the flu is on a new peak. People around me are sick and no end in sight … Curious if I will go through this period without getting it.
    I finally made it and wrote my sign-up post for the Take Control Challenge and linked it up. The fun can begin *smile*

    Best wishes

    I’m so pleased to hear that you are on the mend:). Do take it a bit easy though – one of the features of this illness is that it seems to make an unwelcome return if you try doing too much too soon. Take care and have a great, germ-free week, Kimberly:)

  9. A Voracious Reader

    Yay for kicking bug arse! Just remember not to jump completely in with both feet for a few more days. Hard to do, I know. 😀

    I’m so tempted to do the Take Control, but if I don’t get much read, like is my life lately, I think it’ll stress me out. I’ll have to ponder it some more.

    I hope you have a fantastic week, Kim!

    Glad to hear you and the hubby are finally feeling better! I had forgotten about your TBR challenge but may go ahead and sign up since I had such a bad month in February for books that have already been published. and need to get back on track. I hope you have a great week!

  11. Melissa (My words and pages)

    So glad you are starting to feel better. Just remember, don’t push too hard as it may come back. 🙂

    Take care!!

  12. Darlene

    I still haven’t tried Molly Harper. Baby Teeth was one of my “can’t wait” Wednesday picks. Sounds good!

    Yes, I’m ready for Take Control! I’m glad that you’re on the mend. My mom was very sick last week with a wet phlegmy chest. Not good!

    Glad you’re feeling better. I hope your Take Control Challenge goes well next month. I’ll see what my reading schedule looks like next month to determine if I can take control a little bit. 🙂

  14. Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard

    Oh, I hope you’re right and you have finally kicked this infection! I’m signing up for Take Control; my post goes up tomorrow. I’m keeping my goals modest, though, given my work schedule. I wish you a wonderful week and hope you continue to feel better every day.

    I am glad to hear that you finally seemed to have kicked the infections and that unplugging for a few days helped. I have a lot of upcoming ARC’s that publish in march to read next month, so I won’t be joining the challenge, but it does sound like a fun challenge. I know I still have a bunch of older ARC’s I need to get to as well. Have a great week!

    Wonderful to read you are on the road to feeling well again! I normally love winter, but what a rough. I glad welcome Spring haha. I have seen Baby Teeth making a few rounds, so I will be waiting to read your impressions. Stay better – xx

    Thank goodness you’re finally over the worst and getting better! So interesting to see Kevin Hearne take such a spotlight this week. My husband just started reading that series (Iron Druid) a couple days ago and is really enjoying it. It’s great that he has so many books ahead of him. Finding an established series can be such a coup. 🙂

    February went by in a blink. Can’t believe the challenge begins this week. I’m rarin’ to go.

    So glad you guys are feeling a bit more healthy. Enjoy those new books on the pile!

  19. Amy

    I hope this week is better for you both. I wish I could take part in Take Control but my March is looking super busy at the moment so I doubt I’ll be able to read much, nevermind take part in a challenge. Good luck with it though! 🙂

    I’m glad you are starting feel better. How to Date your Dragon looks like it would be very interesting and makes me want to check it out. I have to look into Take Control this year, I don’t know what all is on my TBR list. Have a great week!

    Glad to hear you guys are starting to feel better. This bug seems to not want to let you go. Sometimes a little rest and unplugging is good for the soul. I can’t believe we are almost to March. I’m not ready yet. Eeek I still have books to read on my list for the month. I hope you feel even better. Have a great week and happy reading.

    So glad to hear you are getting better. I am now having my own moments and currently may have to change my caffeinating habits amongst other things. May have to say goodbye to dairy forever. Yes I know there are other things but I like my fluffy white.
    Am looking forward to watching this challenge. I can’t commit my time this month till the moments problem is solved but good luck all.

  23. Christina T

    I hope you and your family continue to get better every day. I am glad March is nearly here. Hopefully it will bring better health for everyone too!

    I am thinking of participating in Take Control again this year. I definitely have some catching up to do on my books for review.

    I’m so glad to hear you are feeling better. How to Date Your Dragon sounds really good and is on my Audible wishlist. I bought Hounded during the sale and I can’t wait to listen to it. I hope you have a great week!

    Glad you both were obedient patients this week and are feeling better! The Dragon book sounds good. Have a great week.

  26. ShootingStarsMag

    I’m glad that you are starting to kick the sickness! It’s just going around everywhere it seems. I don’t know if I’m doing the TBR challenge next month or not. I don’t have a TON of books to review – which is nice – so I’m mostly focusing on backlist…or that’s the plan at least. haha
