The Sunday Post ~ 37th 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.

My new year got off to a lousy start as I came down with the flu. I watched my housework pile up, calling out of work and spent my days hiding under the covers. I slept, I read, I visited a few blogs, coughed, sneezed and repeated my way through the week. I did get some pretty exciting books in my mailbox and look forward to sharing them. I broke my own rules regarding ARC’s for January and find myself with 4 or 5 books a week to review! I assure you all of the titles will be worth the extra reading..hehehe! Thankfully I read and post ahead, and I am scheduled through the 19th already. Now I am busy trying to read all of the books for the end of the month and first week of February. I hope you all adjusted well to the end of the holidays and resuming the daily grind! Have a awesome book filled week!

    I think my comment got lost, but just in case it didn’t… I’m sorry to hear you had that flu bug. It went around here and then we also had snow to ruin our holiday plans. You have some awesome looking reads coming up, can’t wait to hear about them!

    Oh, you got the first Camelot book by Ruthie Knox! :D

    I’m glad you’re feeling better. Take care of yourself.

    I have been very ill this first week of the year as well. And I think a lot of booklovers all over the world had the same flu. Must have been spread through a book or something. Here is to a better second week of 2013!

    Ah yes! Wallbanger is hilarious, I loved it so much haha. Definitely one of my favourite read of 2012, hope you enjoy it!! I’m excited for Going Vintage, the cover is so cute.

    Great haul! I haven’t heard of most of your review books but I wish I’d gotten approved for Going Vintage *sigh*
    The Storyteller has been on my list for a while. It sounds like it will be a hautingly beautiful tale, and I love the cover :) I hope you’re in better health now, and I’m looking forward to your reviews of Uses For Boys and Shadowlands! Thanks for stopping by yesterday :)
