The Sunday Post #13



Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted  @ Caffeinated Book 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


Bowling is going well!  I have bowled twice for my team when other ladies have been absent and I felt great! I even bowled decently for me! I have to say it is such a relief, as that's truly the only sport I really participate in, other than walking as exercise, which I don't do nearly enough!  I would say the broken arm is just about back, I have a hard time putting weight fully on it, with my hand perpendicular to my arm, so I'm not ready for push ups, but most other things are pack to normal! (Push ups really haven't been normal for me anyway!)

This past Thursday was Thanksgiving in the US, so that was nice getting together with family for lots of food and visiting! Having a long weekend has been great too!

This coming Friday my husband and I will be attending another author talk, hosted by our local Rainy Day Books, and it will be astronaut Scott Kelly, discussing his book Endurance.  I can't wait, I think it will be so exciting!





Reviews:

I should have had a review for Artemis by Andy Weir.  Unfortunately, I DNF'd it about a quarter of the way through because I had real issues with the main character, with how he presented her in relation to our current social/political climate, I just felt that he made bad choices.  Here is a link to my Goodreads opinion if you are interested.  Artemis review

I was also supposed to have reviewed The Upside of Unrequited for My TBR List's November choice, but I just couldn't get into it, through no fault of the book, it was just too teen and too contemporary, and too cute boys and girls and worried about dating and how they looked, which is exactly what it says it was, but it just wasn't for me right now.  I don't want to relive those days, even vicariously, nope!



Features (otherwise known as ALL THE VOTING!):

Polls:
 
I've started a poll feature to last from now until the end of the year where you will help me pick what my best reads were!  Each week I will have a poll that lists the books I read in a particular month for you to vote what my best read that month was.  At the end of the year, I will run those 12 in a poll against each other, and when we have a winner I will host a giveaway for that book!

Even if you haven't read any of them, please vote on the one that interests you the most!

I have posted the results for January - May voting here: January - May 2017 Best Read Results

And have opened the June poll here: Best Read of June 2017 Poll

June has a tough choice with 3 books I would be hard pressed to decide between, as they've all been popular and important in different ways.  I'm really interested to see how that turns out!

Please Vote!

  3. Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving! And nice to hear that bowling is going well, I imagine it could be quite a challenge when healing from a broken arm!

    Sorry to hear The Upside of Unrequited didn't work for you, I have trouble with those teen contemps sometimes too. I mean sometimes they're cute and fun but other times... it just depends on my mood I guess.

    Hope the new books are all good!
