Sunday Post #46/ It's Monday. What Are You Reading



The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

This has been another eventful week, with lots going on. May has been crazy. As usual , reading time has suffered- I'm looking forward to summer and some lazy days reading out in the sun. Preferably by the water... 

With reading time at a premium, I decided to do some quick, easy reads. I'm going to review the Winter Soldier comics and started this past week with Winter Soldier: Winter Kills. This week I'll be reviewing Winter Soldier: Broken Arrow and maybe some other comic stuff if I have time. You can check out my review of Winter Kills here

Oh and I realized my blog is a year old on June 8th. Actually my first reviews went up in 2012 but June is when I started blogging regularly. So we'll go with that. Not sure how I'll celebrate it, but I'll think of something.   

Happy Memorial day weekend!

  1. My blog is turning a year old soon, too (June 4). I don't have anything planned yet. I might think of something.

    No Game of Thrones this week. :(

    I love the Pure Michigan ads on TV. There are a couple of other states (Missouri and I think Wyoming) that have really stepped up their tourism ads in the past year or so. I credit Pure Michigan for setting the bar so high.

    1. Hey congrats! I'm not sure what I'm going to do but I'll try and think of something... :)

      I do think Pure Michigan has done a good job with their tourism ads. I live here and I sometimes think "I want to go there"! LOL.

  2. The Dragon Egg drink of the week sounds interesting, not sure if I'd drink it but I'm sure thousands would. LOL
    Hope you manage to get in some quality reading time. Have a great week.

    1. Yes please come back! :) Shattered is next up for me and I too am hoping for a good ending. I've peeked at a few reviews (no spoilers) just to get a sense and it seems positive, so that's good!

  4. I am so bad with blogoversaries - I have the counter on my blog and I always keep an eye on it, but then for some reason I completely go past the date and then realize like a week later that the blogoversary already. I even had it marked on my calendar this year, but I never noticed it from the mess of uni notes. Oh well... I hope you have a good blogoversary though :)

    1. Thank you, I almost missed it too. Technically it should have been March I guess, since that's when I really started, but then June was when I posted regularly, so.. that will work. :)

    1. Ooh, hope you like them. I read some Spider Woman's once, they were pretty good. She's seen a bit of a resurgence lately at Marvel, so that's nice. The Winter Soldier's are pretty good, at least the ones I've read, and I really liked the movie so thought I would delve into them a bit more.

  29. Congrats on the blogoversary :) Mine's coming up in July and I have no idea what I'm going to do.

    I was thinking of you because I finally broke down and started watching Game of Thrones - I'm that one crazy person that was resisting (I really didn't like the wolf being killed). For some reason I think of GoT and I think of you LOL! I am enjoying it now - even though the horse loosing it's head was so not cool! Hope you're having a great week and getting a little more reading time :)

    1. Hey Berls- I guess I deserve to be to GoT since I'm always talking about it- LOL! I hope you like it- although I have to say I'm not the biggest fan of the show. Love the books, but the show- they make decisions sometimes I don't like. Yeah it's a violent books but they seem to go overboard on the show sometimes, for shock value. I didn't like it when the wolf was killed, either.
