The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly  @ 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.



I forgot to mention last week I won a prize in a Romantic Suspense Challenge at what is now Unconventional Bookworms.    I don’t have a section for prizes and I’m lazy / busy so I stuck it in here.

This week was a limbo week waiting for our appointment next week with the rheumatologist.  The doctor called to say the blood work tests were also negative so if everything is negative, what is the problem and why is she in so much pain?  I’ve done a little research and have a couple questions so we will see what happens Tuesday. Her medical appointments are Tuesday, Thursday and Friday this week.

I’m off work Monday-Wednesday which is good.  I work Thursday and Friday. For some odd reason I am off the weekend and then scheduled to work again after Labor Day. ????  I thought the plan was to work on the weekend so I would have weekdays for medical appoints.  I traded working Labor Day for Wednesday because I don’t know what other appointments we will need.  I have lots of questions to ask insurance about cost of treatments they are recommending.  Also, I have my own issue which just happened today and need to try to see the doctor on Monday.  I work both days this weekend and I’m not in pain or anything.  I’m never sick or anything so I hate this.

I feel badly I am not getting around to comment as much as I like but this is a rough time for me.  Hopefully things will improve.  I’m loving all my books.


Don’t forget to look at my giveaways on the right sidebar. Plus the Magic Triumphs Giveaway blog tour has started!  My post is tomorrow for the tour.


Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality.  These are the exciting ARCs I received this week:





Etched in Bone by Anne Bishop       Cold Reign by Faith Hunter

These two Ace authors were on sale for Kindle deals of $1.99 so it was time to add them to my collection. Plus the Audible version was available to add for just $3.99 of Cold Reign.  I’ve been collecting Jane on audio a bit.


Now the really scary one. This is all the Kindle and Audible freebies I grabbed this past week. You can see why I need to do Thrifty Thursday to be sure I read a few at least one each month.




I really meant to cut back on freebies BUT  they are free so I guess that won’t be happening.


I’m not including things like reviews posted or upcoming as they are always in the right sidebar. And, my challenge status is also there.

If you like this and want to see me do the Sunday post, as often as I can manage, leave me a comment and let me know. I work odd hours with no access to phone or Internet so sometimes I’m not around to approve comments right away.  I do work today.

  1. Ah, bummer about your own health taking a hit. Hope some of your questions get things squared away for figuring out what is causing her troubles. The not knowing is hard- been there.

    I almost snagged Etched in Bone, but I forgot. LOL I did end up getting one of the Audible Deals of the Day this week, The Tuscan Child. Oh, and yes, a few freebies for me, too. Congrats on winning the Tucker. I liked that one.

    Wishing you well this next week, Anne!

    • Thanks Sophia! After today, I have 3 days off, but they are not off with the appts and all. So it’s a fallacy. I have about 9 days of things I want to do in those 3 days too. Plus a bunch of reading. We will see.

      I strongly considered The Tuscan Child but it is at my library in ebook and audio so I put it on my list there. I’m excited about Keep Her Safe Thanks to Brandee and Lexxie

    • Me too! Sometimes I buy the Kindle book because then adding Whispersync makes it cheaper to get the audio. I noticed in an audio this week that I reviewed I had NO idea how to spell some of the names. I had to go check out the book to get the spellings. lol Have a good week!

  2. I hope things improve soon for you and your daughter. It’s no fun when something is wrong but the doc’s don’t know what’s going on. 🙁

    I’m so excited for Magic Triumphs. I may be kindle stalking tomorrow at midnight to get a few chapters in before I lose consciousness, lol.

    • Yes it is. It’s important for me to ask lots of questions and be her advocate because she is in pain and may not logically present all the evidence of the situation. And the doctors barely read their own records, much less talking to the other doctors. I’ll be on the phone to the insurance tomorrow to try to figure out what the treatments / tests will cost which they have recommended so far.

      Thank goodness for great books to escape and relax!

  3. Best of luck with the rheumatologist. It can be tough and frustrating when results are inconclusive, so I hope you guys get an answer soon. And congrats on the win. 🙂

    Ooh Cold Reign looks fun!!

    • Thanks Greg. Cold Reign is awesome – it’s the 11th book in the series. I have read and enjoyed the series including ALL the novellas. It’s urban fantasy which is my favorite.

  4. All those medical appointments. I hope they can figure what’s going on for your daughter. Now onto books. I’m slowly working my way through Jane Yellowrock. I need to get back to the series. I Love Jane and Beast, but I’ve been side tracked whit the Elemental Assassin series. I’m hooked and keep requesting the books from my library as soon as I finished one. I can’t believe I waited this long to try the series. ^_^ I hope you enjoy all the books you got. Have a great week.

    • Thank you! Yes it’s true. At least we can rule some things out. Yes, I’ve read all the books I bought this week, but they are series I love and am collecting as I can. The books are keeping me sane right now. Plus my determination to find answers.

  5. Keep her Safe, Etched in Bone? Two great ones. And I loved The Gravity of Us. I didn’t get it free but loved it enough to read more by her which I guess is the reason for freebies. Hope you get the medical stuff straightened out! Enjoy your books.

    • Thanks Lorna! I do get all the great books. Of course, if I get ALL the books, then I won’t miss any great ones. lol It makes it hard to choose what to read next. I’m a bit discombobulated right now but hope to get back on track having a few days off now. I hope you find some amazing reads!

  6. Yay! Congrats on winning that Romantic Suspense Challenge prize! Sorry to hear about all the helath issue. Hope you fins the answers soon!

    • Thank you! I hope so too Today so far I’ve been on the phone asking more questions and learning a few things, but tomorrow is the first big specialist appointment.

      I am so excited to win as romantic suspense is one of my favorite categories. I hope to get to it soon.

  7. Melanie

    I hope that you’re feeling better. Being sick sucks. I know that I’ve had some issues and I’m now on a fairly high dose of prednisone. It seems to be helping some things and ignoring others. I hope it all is clear before I’m off the meds.
