The Sunday Post ~ 26nd 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.

I have to laugh, this weeks book haul is very eclectic which is exactly how my bookshelf looks. I read all genres from horror to romance; YA and adult. I love mixing things up! I get burned out if I read the same genre day in and day out. How about you?

Last week on the blog I brought you: 

This week on the blog look for:
  • Pretty When She Kills by Rhiannon Frater (review-giveaway)
  • Phantom by Laura DeLuca (spotlight-giveaway)
  • Blood by Moonlight by Jocelynn Drake, Terri Garey, and Caris Roane (review-giveaway)
  • Spooktacular Blog Hop (giveaway)
  • The Restorer by Amanda Stevens (review-giveaway)
  • Rot and Ruin by Jonathan Maberry (review
  • Foretold: 14 Tales of Prophecy and Prediction edited by Carrie Ryan (review-giveaway)
Around the Blogosphere:
  • Check out Brodie@Elesinian Mysteries and her guest post “Converting A Reluctant YA Reader, Dr. Suess Style.” It is positively hilarious!
  • Lisa @ Paranormal and Urban Fantasy Reviews started a new feature called “News You Can Use”. She offers information about books, blogs, authors and other interesting tid-bits. Love this new feature!

    It’s good to have a variety of books and genres. I refuse to narrow myself to one or two, there are too many good books out there. Enjoy!

    Looking forward to what you think of The Uninvited, Kimba! It just sounds so deliciously creepy :) Also everyone talks about Lori Foster, I’d better read her too! Enjoy all your lovely books!

    Ooh, Uses For Boys! I love the description of that one :) Great haul! And I’m looking forward to your review of Foretold, I won a signed copy but haven’t had time to read it yet.

    Hehehe..you just had me racing to GR to check out the blue cover and I like that one too, although this one is creepy! I read very few contemporary especially YA, and am excited about Uses for Boys..although I think it is going to be more of a heart string book.

  6. Christina Megan

    The Uninvited looks so creepy! I like the other cover better, though, the blue one. Also, I hope Uses for Boys is sort of hilarious and quirky, which is what I imagine, because the title makes me giggle.

  7. kimbacaffeinate

    Ha, you sound like me I am a total sucker for holiday themed books..it get’s me in the holiday mood and I cannot wait to read Uninvited!

  8. kimbacaffeinate

    Doesn’t it though, the synopsis said if you like Cronin’s the Passage and I like totally freaked out and had to get it!!

  9. kimbacaffeinate

    Sweet, I read a review of book four for the Gone series, and have got to try it. Pretty When She Dies..is so good! Enjoy!

  10. Amber Elise

    I downloaded Gone as well, I’m super curious! Oh and I also bought Pretty When She Dies and I’m really curious! Not enough time to get my halloween reads done!

  19. Christy (Love of Books)

    Haha yeah, my books are all over the place. Well, technically I don’t have many physical books anymore, but I definitely go through phases of what I like to read.

  20. Jennifer

    I KNOW! I stalk her on fb. Okay maybe I don’t go quite that far. But she is very aware I am a huge fan. I have made it known LOL.

  21. Jennifer

    I am very excited for you The Restorer review (if it’s not yet posted – I haven’t looked at my email subscriptions today). Such a great series! And fab book haul!

  22. Sharon

    You had a great week Kimba! and also received some wonderful books :) I love Lori Foster’s ‘Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor’ series so will have to give her new book a go.

    I am really keen to read you thoughts on The Uninvited, I received it a few weeks back but it doesn’t seem like a book for me.

    Sorry I am late stopping by! I have been running around like a mad woman this past week :)

    Happy reading!
