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.

Weekly Posts

In case you missed out, here’s what I posted this week:

Yeah.. It’s been a quiet week, and I didn’t post reviews as planned. I’ve just been in a funk all around, and a bit burned out. I have a several reviews in draft form, and will post a few this coming week (I hope!).

Book Haul

(aka Stacking the Shelves)

Thanks to the publishers and NetGalley for these, I can’t wait to get to them both!

This week I picked up On the Island after hearing how un-put-down-able it is, and everyone was right! I devoured it and I think it helped me get out of my reading funk! I also grabbed Double Clutch from Smashwords, where it’s currently FREE. I’ve heard so many great things about it and I can’t wait to read it.

I was excited to find that A Rogue by Any Other Name was available on  through my library! It’s been on my radar for a while so I had to download it (if you don’t know what Overdrive is you must check it out!). This is definitely not YA! I think this romance dug me out of my reading rutt (backed with On the Island), after not really reading much in 2 weeks. I’ve finally shook off whatever reading funk I was in, YAY!

Currently Reading

Yup, I’m still reading these (I had to get out of my funk)! It took me a bit to get into The Raven Boys, but I’m loving it right now! What are you reading?


This coming week I’m hosting Patricia Dunn as part of her Rebels by Accident blog tour! I also hope to catch up on some reviews… I’ve been burned out with the blog lately and it’s been hard stay motivated. I hope I’ll get past this soon! I’ll definitely share my WoW pick of the week, and see what other posts I can surprise you with.

I’m looking for some fun reading/blog activities for September and October (possibly a read-a-long, a read-a-thon, or whatever). If you have a suggestion please leave it in the comments! I may just create my own event, but sadly… I’m not that creative. Maybe once I’m out of my funk I’ll be inspired. Haha, we’ll see!

Have a great week!

    I’m sorry you’re in a funk! It doesn’t seem like it from here!!! But I know how you feel… the book I’m reading right now that I requested on Edelweiss just isn’t really doing it for me and I’d much rather be reading something else. But I usually don’t DNF so I’m plugging away.

    Hey, and it’s almost Halloween – I’m sure you can come up with something nightmare-ish to do in the coming months 🙂 Back to school themed?

    Or just keep reading those fun, sexy reads 😉

    I have to admit I am a little jealous out Crewel. Lol The Archived sneak peek was really good. I can’t wait for it. I hope you and enjoy them and your week.

    Great haul! I cannot believe crewel is on net galley,I have wanted to read this book back since I heard about it during the armchairbea 2012. I normally check out net galley recently but the past few wks I haven’t as I was taking a break from review books, arrr!! Typical. I am currently browsing net galley and saw it before your post so was funny to see it here too lol, if you know what I mean.
    on the island…..I have had that for a while but not read it, I have kinda bypassed it when it came to reviewed, I thought it might not be that great, but maybe I need to give it a go then 🙂 hope you are out of your reading funk, I’m stuck in a review funk, I have four reviews to write and it is getting me down 🙁
    Anyways happy reading Hun 🙂 xx

    I’m psyched to read the Archived and I’m dying to just sit around for a few days and read. That is totally what I need to do right now.
