The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This meme was inspired in part by In My Mailbox. 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.

Hi peeps! Did you miss me last week? I was at Denver Comic Con all last weekend, and was (am) still recovering from BEA week so I decided to lay low and not post a “Sunday Post” last week. Sorry about that! This week’s will be a bit long since I’ll be covering 2 weeks…

Weekly News

In case you missed out, here’s a list of posts for the week of July 11, 2012:

This past week I was honored to have debut author Meagan Spooner (SKYLARK, August 2012) as a guest! She shared a post called “Write What You Know” and is giving a SKYLARK swag pack, so be sure to check it out. I reviewed Trish Doller’s debut Something Like Normal, and the audiobook version of Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi. I also shared my WoW pick of the week, and recapped my experience at Denver’s inaugural Comic Con!
This weekend I’m participating in #blogathon2, but unfortunately haven’t had much time to devote to it. I have accomplished a few tasks on my to-do list that I would not have completed otherwise, so even if I’m not able to do as much as I hoped, I already call it a success :).

Book Haul

(aka Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews

I have a HUGE fantastic book haul to share with you, since this is a rack up books I’ve received in the past 3 weeks, including my BEA haul! I’m sorry for not including the book covers for all the books in this haul… but I simply don’t have the time right now. OK, so here we go…

First, in case you haven’t heard, Diana Peterfreund has released a prequel novella called Among the Nameless Stars and it’s FREE on EpicReads! I’m so excited to read For the Darkness Shows the Stars so I was excited to find out about the prequel –  I LOVE novellas!

I had a fantastic couple of weeks on NetGalley, thanks so much to the publishers for these titles:

Many thanks to Brilliance Audio for sending me an AWESOME package of audiobooks last week! It included:

So, I went to the library earlier this week to drop off a book and found myself in the audiobook section. I’m proud of myself for walking out with only 2 audiobooks! I picked up:

    I will definitely be listening to your interview with Ernest Cline! I was supposed to do one with him the day after his signing in Boulder, but I was so caught up with work that I ended up having to cancel..:)
