The Sunday Post ~ 29th 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.

This month I have been bringing you a wide array of genres and I hope you are enjoying them. I am delighted to be a co-host for a fabulous event in February called, “Fiery Hot Reads for Icy Cold Nights”. It’s a blog hop and I hope you will sign up to share your favorite fiery hot read and giveaway. This should be a fantastic event and a great way to share, meet new bloggers and grow your blog. On a personal note; My husband has been working almost two hours away and each day commutes back and forth. We have been planning to move once our daughter graduated this year. I am tickled pink to share that he was offered and accepted a position right here in town. No moving boxes! Yay! After three years of that awful commute it will be so nice for my hubby to have a fifteen minute ride to work.

Last week on the blog I brought you:

This week on the blog look for:
  • Avon Books Double-header The Second Seduction of A Lady and The Importance of Being Wicked by Miranda Neville (review)
  • River Road by Suzanne Johnson (review)
  • Waiting on Wednesday
  • Kissing Under the Mistletoe by Marina Adair (review and giveaway)
  • Asleep Without Dreaming by Barbara Forte Abate (review)
  • Blogger Tips and Tricks #4 (scrolling blogrolls, grow your blog and how to have daily content)
Around the Blogosphere: 
  • Do not forget to sign up the Fiery Hot Reads for Icy Cold Nights Giveaway Hop ~ share your favorite book/author/series.

  • Liz @Fictional Candy has a wonderful weekly feature called Blogger on Blogger, go check it out!

    I’m very jealous of everyone who receives books for review from publishers! :) Awesome haul and thanks for stopping by my SS :)

  2. Bea

    Congrats to your husband on his new job; that will be so much easier for both of you! I’m looking forward to your blog tips. Have fun reading. :)

  3. Bea

    Okay, that’s weird. I posted a link to my book post earlier today and just as you said, it’s gone. I posted it again, I hope this one doesn’t disappear too.

    I’m pretty curious about Moonset, Kimberly! Both you and The Book Smugglers requested it, and I can’t wait to hear what you think! Fab selection this week, enjoy! :)

  5. Jennifer Messerschmidt

    I really want Hysteria now that I see it on all the blogs but I’m trying to keep my review pile in check. So difficult! LOL

  6. Proserpine Craving

    The Hounded series looks great! Wow, what a great week you had! A most Scandalous Proposal and the The Rogue’s Princess seems to be my kind of read, I’ll check for your review of these two titles! Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Ashley

    Aww that’s wonderful about your husband’s job offer and lessened commute! 15 minutes from 2 hours it’s a fantastic improvement, and I’m glad you’ll get him home more :)

  8. Sam

    I received Hysteria last week and think it sounds brilliant. I can’t wait to see what you think of it! :)

  9. Andrea

    This comment angel looks awesome! I’m definitely in! And great books this week and awesome news for you family! I feel like the worst part of a job is always the commute. ): Have a good week Kim!

  14. UnabridgedBookshelf

    Congratulations to you for your husband’s new job, I could not imagine having my husband gone so long with a two hour commute! You had a great week in books!! I am really looking forward to Hysteria and Moonset they both look awesome!! I hope you enjoy all your new books! Thanks for sharing!

  15. Melissa's Eclectic Bookshelf

    How great about your husband’s job!! A horrid commute like that can really put a strain on life! Yay for not having to move!! Enjoy all your great books and have fun with the $25 GC!!

    OOh nice! Yay for signed copies! I still need to get caught up on Kevin Hearne’s series! Read the first book last year but haven’t read more since, but it was awesome! Happy Reading!

    Have a GREAT day!

    Wow! So much great news this week! I can’t imagine a four hour commute daily for 3 years :( I know friends in SoCal who don’t bat an eye at that but they take the train. This is hard core driving: gas, alone time, no car pools. I’m over the moon for you guys!! What a relief!! YAY!!!

    And thank you for catching me up on news around blogland! Please keep up the links – everyone has their own sphere they get around to and I might never hear of the happenings you hear about :)

    FINALLY, You bought Hounded!!! Woot, Woot!!! Check out Kevin’s website, too. The man is a hoot!!! He’s a favorite author of mine just because he’s such a cool author, along the lines of Scalzi cool.

  18. Heidi

    That’s great about your husband’s job! When we lived in Phx my husband I commuted two hours each day and it was not fun. So glad to live in OR and not have to do that. The commenting angel sounds like fun. I will have to pick someone even though I am pretty good about commenting daily on all my close friend’s blogs. I was thinking of getting that Scandalous book and Hysteria but I passed, I hope I don’t regret it. Getting signups everyday for Fire and Ice it is growing slow and steady! Have a great weekend. Peppermint mocha coffee.

    I hope you enjoy all of the new books and congrats to your husband for getting a job close by! ^.^

    Ahhhh! NIce haul. I want Hysteria like burning! I also really want to read The Rogue’s Princess! The first two books in that series were super cute. :)

  21. Monaliz

    I got my eye on The Hysteria! And Hounded is (still) waiting in my bookshelf, I bought it like.. few months? ago, still haven’t read it :/ But hopefully I’ll read it one day.. :D
