Sunday Post

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.

September is finally coming to an end, and tomorrow I will find myself one year older, but no worries because it is also the start of an exciting month on the blog. I will be having my first month-long themed event called “Things that Go Bump in the Night” with great reviews, guest posts, and tons of awesome giveaways. I am also super excited about hosting my first read-a-thon on October 5th called Fraterfest. I hope you will stop by and join in all the fun. Have an awesome week and grab a pumpkin latte before you go visit all the lovely blogs below.

Last week on the blog I brought you:

This week on the blog look for:
  • Launch of Things That Go Bump in the Night
  • Ten by Gretchen McNeil (review-giveaway)

    Wow! Looks like you’re going to have a busy week!

    I’m curious how Justin Cronin’s The Twelve will be. The first was kind of weird for me. Maybe I just need to reread it but it seemed a little slow. My jury is still on debate with the second book, although I’d hate to leave it hanging where it did. I want to know what happens! LOL.. guess that’s my answer.

  37. karina

    I am dying to read Unfailing Light! Great haul, Kimba! I hope you enjoy all your wonderful books! 🙂

  38. Michelle

    I keep seeing Vengeance Bound a lot lately but I don’t know anything about it, the cover is really nice though. I like the contrast. I still need to read The Gathering Storm, and I’m kind of embarrassed that I haven’t yet. It’s been sitting on my shelf for so long. I’m looking forward to Fraterfest and Things Go Bump in the Night and I hope you have a good week 🙂

  39. Kristilyn Robertson

    The Stacy Jay books look so good! I really need to try them out! And The Brightest Kind of Darkness!! I so want that book — the cover is absolutely gorgeous!! And everyone seems to have Vengeance Bound … I’m interested in that one. Love Greek Mythology!

  40. Sam

    I received Vengeance Bound this week too. It sounds quite interesting so I’m looking forward to reading it and comparing thoughts. 🙂 Great haul, Kimba!

  42. Jen Ryland

    Whoa– Random House must have known it was your birthday! Hope you have a great day 🙂
    I’ll also be reading Romeo Redeemed, Velveteen (Bonesaw –scared!) and Flutter. I want to read the Montmoray series. I have the first book. It’s on my pile for summer 2013!

  43. GRgenius

    Awesome week both last and this! Can’t wait to read all about them! ^_^

  52. Rebecca Preston

    Wow you will be busy this month and I couldn’t be more excited about your Things that Go Bump in the Night events! We’re having an October event as well, although not to that scale! I’d love it if you got a chance to stop by and tell us what scary books you’ll be reading for the month, either in linked post or in the comments! I’m read Frater’s first Days, so I’m interested to see what you think about Pretty when she dies!

    The Gathering Storm is a good read for Fraterfest!

    Can’t wait to see your Fraterfest posts! (not sure if I signed up or not)..

  67. kimbacaffeinate

    I am 50% done The Twelve and loving it. I did not mind the slower pace of The Passage as I found the world-building and rich detail to be mind blowing. My review will post on the 17th.

  68. Naomi Hop

    Wow!! Great haul this week, and you will definitely be super busy this month!! I look forward to read your thoughts of Ten by Gretchen McNeil. That book has been very popular lately!
