The Sunday Post #10

Posted by Jenea in Just Talking / 23 Comments


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


This was a much better week than the last. I have a new water heater. All is well now. It’s hard to believe that the summer is almost over for my kids. They start school Tuesday. My daughter is so excited and my son just groans every time it is mentioned. It’s gonna be quiet at my house during the day. Just me and the dogs. *will be reading* I did have a great week here on the blog. I posted a cover reveal for Options by Abbi Glines on Tuesday. And reviews for Pushing The Limits by Katy McGarry, Fever by Lauren DeStefano, and If I Stay and Where She Went by Gayle Forman. I participated in two meme’s, the Waiting on Wednesday and What’s Next. Defiance by C.J. Redwine won the What’s Next meme. So I am reading it right now, which is fun because it on my laptop. I have a few reviews to post this week too. On Monday my review for Wake by Amanda Hocking will be posted. And reviews for Amber House by Kelly Moore and The Mephisto Covenant by Trinity Faegen. I received some goodies this week, so I was pretty excited.  I definitely need more hours in the day.

I hope everyone has a fantastic week ahead.

    LOVED Pushing the Limits. I’m interested to see what you thought of Wake. I’ve read some of Amanda Hocking’s self-published work and I’m interested to see about Wake. I haven’t heard much about it yet. Sounds like you had a great week.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    YAY for new water heater! I can’t believe your kids are going back to school so soon. Do you live in the South in the US?

    I hope you like Ashen Winter; did you read the first one? It kept me up until 3AM. I just couldn’t put it down.

      I live in Notheast Tennesse about 10 miles from North Carolina. They seems to go back earlier and earlier every year.

    I’m happy you got your water heater! Yay for hot showers! I mean, I never really appreciate that kind of thing until it’s not there…

    I also got Ashen Winter and need to read Ashfall — I’ve heard that it’s great.

    Have a wonderful week!

    Yikes! School is already starting! Really where did the summer go! Well, hooray for a new water heater. I am interested to hear what you thought of Mephisto Covenant, that one was not one of my favorite reads. Wake was just average! Who hoo for Darynda Jones! Have you read her before? She is awesome. Have a fantastic week and thanks for stopping by my blog!

    Ah, the joy of back to school. It gets sweeter as they kids get older. lol

    You reviewed some great stuff last week and have a terrific haul! I’m all green-faced over the Darynda Jones book – I can’t wait to get my hands on that one, I love her Charley Davidson series and this looks so good. :)
