Sunday Post #24

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated reviewer book blog, and is a post to recap my bookish and non-bookish things from the last week.

I'm back up in Northern California and it's beautiful! Green and everything is blooming! We went to the movies to see the newest How to Train Your Dragon movie, and it was so good! 
I was able to get my eight mile run in up here despite the on and off rain I caught a block of dry weather and took it! I listened to Veronica Speedwell. Loved the narration and the story!

I had a great reading week loving everything I read. Need Me Cowboy was short, hot and sweet! I can't get enough of the Mercy Kilpatrick series and with finishing A Merciful Fate I'm all caught up with the series. I can't wait for the next one. I Want You Back (I'm giving away a copy HERE) was a story I've been waiting for, Jax and Lucy's second chance romance was everything I hoped for! A Treacherous Curse is been my favorite Veronica Speedwell installment to date. I'm starting the audio of the next one tomorrow on my drive home to Southern California.

Love Mary Balogh's historical romances, so snatched up Someone to Honor when it was offered. I'm looking forward to Hide and Seek to get Macy Crow's story. I met her in Cut and Run which I really enjoyed. I love Robyn Carr so I was thrilled to get a copy of The View from Alameda Island.  Beautiful Mistake was on sale at Audible and I've had fun with Vi Keeland's romances in the past.


Loved the newest How to Train Your Dragon! It seems like the end to the series and I thought it ended perfectly!  Bumble Bee was a lot of fun. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it. 

How was your week?


  1. I wanted to take my little brother to watch the new How to Train your Dragon movie, but I didn't get a chance with my work schedule :(

  2. I love the How to Train Your Dragon movies, and we just rented Bumblebee from red box! My husband is loving all of the 80's music! I love your picture of the purple tree! It looks like you've been reading a lot of good books!

  3. Ooh what a beautiful pic! Looks like a wonderful view from there! And it's starting to feel like spring here too, with everything starting to bloom and/ or green up. Isn't it awesome?

    The Speedwell books looks awesome as well!

  4. I love Northern CA and 8 miles is a great run, I usually just do 4. Your books look great, enjoy!

  5. Those pictures are amazing and I wish I can transport there already. Have a great week ahead.

  6. I have a couple of Mary Burton books hiding out on my Kindle.

    I also love Robyn Carr's books. Enjoy your reading and your Northern California blooming.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  7. Those How To Train Your Dragon movies look so cute. Someday. Yay for enjoying lots of good books this week. No the feeling of being caught up and stuck waiting on the next book. Soon, though. This Veronica Speedwell was my fav, too.
    I grabbed that Mary Balogh, too.

    Have a good week, Rachel!

  8. How To Train Your Dragon looks really cute. Sorry that you have had so much rain but I am glad you were able to work your run in during a break. I hope you have a great week and enjoy your new reads!

  9. Gorgeous photo that you shared! I really enjoyed I Want You Back. Such a good second-chance romance.

  10. I was surprised that I really enjoyed Bumblebee. How to Train Your Dragon 3 made me cry, I loved it!

    Hope you have a good week Rachel!

  11. I used to see all the animated films. Then my daughter went away to school and never moved back, so I am so out of touch. At least I know the franchise, right? Glad you were able to get in a good run AND listen to an audiobook. Multitasking at its best.

  12. The movie sounds fun. And thanks for the lovely pics. Spring is such a beautiful, magical time.

  13. ooh beautiful photo! I saw two movies this week: Captain Marvel and Shazam! and I really loved both. :)


  14. Oh gorgeous! It is lovely seeing everything bloom. Yay on Yates! I had fun with them, too :)

  15. I’m an 80’s music fan too, so I enjoyed Bumblebee as well. I’m so impressed by your casual 8 mile run, I couldn’t even make 8 meters!

    Have a great reading week :)

  17. Pretty pic! I admire that you can run 8 miles! I've never been a runner but I do love working out (I didn't use to but it's grown on me a lot!). We need to see the new How To, we have loved all the others and even the TV show.

  18. It's warmer and blooming here in NC too. I've read or have on my TBR half of all your pretty book haul. Happy reading!
