Sunday Post #67: Burning Up & Wrap Up

by Aleen @ Lampshade Reader

Welcome back to the Sunday Post! Sit back, kick up your feet, and relax!


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

I’m seriously burning up over here. I can’t remember it being so hot and humid last year, but dang! It’s like walking onto the surface of the sun. I feel bad for those in California that had a heat wave, but at least we have air conditioning here in TX.


Guess what? I’m actually reading a book off my TBR pile. I can hear all of your shocked gasps right now. LOL. I decided to read the Alienist by Caleb Carr. I really want to see the television show, but wanted to wait and read the book first. It’s a book that’s close to 500 pages and it’s taking me a while to get through. I doubt I’ll finish it soon and it might have to wait again because of ARCs that I have coming up. Regardless, it’s an interesting, but heavy, read. Has anyone seen the show or read this?

In technical “I don’t what the hell is going on” news, I’m having a Yoast/SEO problem. A warning keeps popping up that my homepage cannot be indexed by Google. Well, I went through all the troubleshooting and I did the Google test and it came back fine. I even signed up for that website that Yoast suggests: Ryte.com, but I accidentally cancelled the analysis and it won’t let me restart it until a couple of weeks. Or I can pay to do it again. So, I’m wondering if anybody is going through this, or has gone through this. I read online of simply updating Yoast gets rid of that warning, but that’s not true at all. I’ve updated it 3 times since this warning came up and nada. I really don’t want to pay if I don’t have to.



I received a review copy of My Wanderlust Bites the Dust from Eliza Watson. I just love this author and series. So I’m excited to read this one. Check out this series, but I do recommend starting from book 1. 🙂

I haven’t heard of these before but My Wanderlust Bites the Dust sounds like something I definitely need to pick up. And I’m in the Upper Midwest and it got pretty steamy up here for awhile (who am I kidding – it still is!). Hope it cools down for you, as well 🙂

Aj @ Read All The Things!

I hope it cools down soon. I’m glad there isn’t much humidity where I live. Enjoy your new books!

Mary @StackingMyBookShelves!

I have the Alienist taped and need to watch the series I plan on doing it back to back and being a couch potato that day. Have a great week.

I’ve never seen the show or read the book. It’s been hot and humid here too and we hardly ever get humidity so it’s killing me.

Nicci @ Sunny Buzzy Books

I’ve never heard of the Alienist but if the TV show has Luke Evans in it, I’m in! lol


This summer sure is a hot one and it’s the humidity which really sucks. I’m enjoying staying inside and reading! I’m sorry about the computer issues – I hate that. Anne – Books of My Heart

It is so hot in TX. UGH.


I dealt with that same Yoast problem. I talked to my host and she told me that its not uncommon and its a bug in the plug in! She told me to give it a few days and it usually will resolve itself. Sure enough, one day I just randomly clicked ‘index’ and it worked fine! I’ve heard the Alienist is good so I hope you are able to finish!

I hate when technology throws something annoying at us…and there is no solution readily available. Sigh. Good luck!

I went through something recently where I couldn’t get on any sites…a Firefox issue that required I go in to my firewall and change a couple of settings.

Enjoy your week, and that long book! Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

Oh my gosh – the heat here a few weeks ago in Maine was terrible. It was so hot I was sweating just sitting down. It meant early nights and early mornings just so I could get stuff done without sweat dripping down my face. Thank God we’ve snapped out of that! I hope you’re staying cool.

I never seen the Alienist before or read the book, but it looks interesting! Hope you have a great week!

I really need to check out The Alienist soon. It is hot almost everywhere, thank goodness for air conditioning. 😉 Have a great week coming up.

Suzanne @ Under the Covers Book Blog

The Alienist is on my Netflix list but I haven’t started watching it yet. I didn’t even know it was based on a book, maybe I’ll read it first as well.

Megan @ reading away the days

We have had so much warm weather in the UK and I can’t cope. I don’t know how you guys cope where you are. I hope you have a great week.

Evelina @ AvalinahsBooks

I actually haven’t had the yoast problem, but Google has had a sitemap indexing problem with my site since forever. And it can’t get fixed, not even professionals know what’s going on (I asked multiple). But SEO still works. So maybe it’s not a big deal? Could be something similar. Maybe you could try reinstalling though.


It’s been hot here too, and muggy. And being in Michigan I feel like I shouldn’t even complain, since I’m not in the South (where I’m SURE it’s worse), but I will anyway lol. Hope you cool off some soon?

I didn’t know The Alienist was a book too? Oops/ 🙂

Have a great weekend!!!!

You don’t need to be in Cali or Texas if you want a tan. Last Saturday I was nicely burned.

I was doing good with my tbr list but I added. More to it.



500 pages , that is heavy. Well at least you are enjoying so it is all good.
