The Sunday Post ~ 24nd Edition

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.

Hello All, I hope the first week of October has been delightful for you. I have been quite busy and am in the middle of the Fraterfest Read-a-thon.

    An Ambuzzador, cute. Congrats.

    I really have to try Reisz’s books, I keep hearing such wonderful things about them, but they are out of my comfort zone too.

    Nice collection as always!

    I hope you enjoy being an Ambuzzador! I think it’s a cool program and enjoyed when I was chosen to help promote Starters. You have had a super busy week on the blog and I can’t wait for your reviews next week, especially Mystic City. I hope you have a good week Kimba and good luck on the readathon!

    I loved The Siren! It’s not usually something I would read, but once you start, you cannot stop!
    And I’m so glad you have Amanda Stevens The Prophet! I love that series. Happy reading!

  4. Jennifer

    Oh oh oh, *flaps hands excitedly* you got The Prophet by Amanda Stevens! OMG I am so in love with that series!

  5. InkandPage

    Ohhhhh what a great idea. You do this every Sunday?

    I have enjoyed Fraterfest! it’s given me a chance to catch up on a few books I have left unfinished as well as start on a few more.

    Great week and thanks for visiting our blog! I really loved your review of pretty when she dies and I think I’m going to have to give Frater’s books a second chance. Fraterfest looked AWESOME and I’m sorry I wasn’t on top of things enough to participate.
