Sunday Post

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted here @ 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. See rules here: Sunday Post Meme

I have been reading some awesome books that I will be sharing with you in October for “Things That Go Bump in the Night” I have everything from horror to romantic suspense, and I am getting excited. It was a quiet week on the home front, and our weather is finally turning a little cooler after high humidity and hundred degree days. I am gearing up for fall and pumpkin flavored coffee! The week ahead on the blog is a good one, with a huge giveaway and some wonderful reviews to share. Have a wonderful week 🙂

    Oh, you got The Naturals. That’s on my wishlist.

    It’s been cool here too but I am not looking forward to pumpkin flavored food and drinks. Ah well, more for you. 😀

      I am really excited about that one and yes I love pumpkin flavored everything!!

  2. Kimberly

    Impressive book haul, I really want to read the new Ilsa Black novel a try and Under Your Skin looks really good as well. I hope you enjoy all your new reads.

      I am excited about them Kim, and look forward to diving into them after Christmas.

  3. Michelle

    You have a great line up for next week! I really need to sit down and read Two Boys Kissing…I’ve been meaning to and it’s been on my night stand for a few weeks now. Isla Bick’s new novel looks really good and I’m really curious about Dead Dreams. Thank you for the post shout out and I hope you have a great weekend!

    I love most pumpkin/flavoured things, best thing about autumn 😉
    I was just trying to decide if I wanted to read The Naturals now, or save it until closer to the release haha. So excited for it! White Spaces looks awesome! Great haul this week Kim!

    • kimbacaffeinate

      I won’t touch it till the month of release, since I am going cray-cray working on October’s books and one September book.

  5. Naomi

    Pumpkin flavoured coffee??? Really??? lol
    Awesome haul girl… Love the cover for Dead Dreams.
    Hope you enjoy The Darkest Part… Trisha is an awesome author! I loved that book. (I got a mention in the acknowledgements too… squee!!)
    Have an awesome week Kimberly.

    I am so in the mood for some spooky books full of hocus pocus. Maybe it was the last Friday the 13th or just the simple fact that Halloween is just around the corner but I am so looking forward to starting some scarier reads for the Something Wicked Tour!

    I see we got a couple of the same books again this week, how fun! Congrats on all of your new reads Kim!

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Agreed, I started reading my October books last week and it really got me in the mood!

  7. Bekka

    I read The Waking Dark last week. It was… strange. Very dark and gruesome. Can’t wait to see what you think 🙂

    I LOVE pumpkin – pumpkin flavored everything. Wawa makes these amazing pumpkin spice milkshakes. Sadly, there aren’t any Wawa’s for hundreds of miles, ever since I moved.

    Hope you have a great week 😀

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Bekka I am so excited about it, dark and gruesome sounds delicious right now, I will be sharing my review in October along with a giveaway!

  8. Berls

    Looking forward to your posts next week (I’m super curious about this 8 awesome blogs post!)and can’t wait to read your review of Two Boys Kissing.

    Nice Haul – I also got Dead Dreams and I’m looking forward to reading it. Have an incredible week 🙂

      Ooo yes the 8 blogs posts tonight around 11pm CST and is an adult giveaway with some awesome pkgs, a little something for everyone!

  9. April

    Another awesome week for you! A lot of those look great! I’m reading Bick’s Ashes trilogy right now and I’m looking forward to reading White Space at some point! I also loved Nobody by Jennifer Lynn Barnes so I’m really intrigued by The Naturals! Under Your Skin and The Waking Dark are most likely to end up on my wish list 😀

    Have a great week and I hope you love your books!

      Thanks April, I am excited about this weeks haul. My 2014 line up for reviews is starting to look pretty dang good..LOL

  10. Chelsea

    Great haul! Loved your Gone Girl review. 🙂 I picked up The Darkest Parts a few weeks ago and really look forward to reading it soon.

    Chelsea recently posted:
    • kimbacaffeinate

      Me too! Did you know your WP account is linked to something else and not your blog? It always comes up with an unable to find.

      • Chelsea

        Thanks Kimba! Yeah, it’s this computer that I’m using. For some reason it is being unreasonable with me. 🙂

        Chelsea recently posted:
    • kimbacaffeinate

      It is very good, I generally get a flavored creamer, but they also have actual pumpkin flavored beans if you prefer your coffee black.

    • kimbacaffeinate

      I love the cover too, but I think they changed it, and I am so not a fan of the new one 🙁

  11. A Voracious Reader

    I wanted The Naturals and Disney shot me down. I know, right!? Ah, well. lol I see you picked up Tempting Bella. I’ll be reading that for a Friday Featured Spotlight on 9/27. 🙂 I have one book in particular on my shelf this week I think you’d like. I’ll wait and see if you spot the one I think you will. 😀

    It’s gotten cooler here as well. Both of my girls are already sick and I’m getting stuffy too. Blah.

    You do have an awesome week ahead! Looking forward to several of your reviews. Have a great week, Kim.

      I feel you, I was sick last week, and dang if my head isn’t a giant ball of eew again today. Hope you all feel better!

  13. Vicky Hooper

    I’m so jealous of Americans and all your pumpkin flavoured goodies! 🙂 One of my fave flavours but very hard to find over here. Enjoy the early days of Autumn! Looks like you have some fantastic books to wrap up with as the nights get colder. 😀

    • kimbacaffeinate

      What? Why no pumpkin flavors? Do ya all grow pumpkins or is it just us crazy Americans and our love of Halloween and pumpkin pies?

  14. Lola

    Thanks so much for mentioning the launch of Lola’s Blog Tours!
    You got some awesome looking books this week! I hope you enjoy them! The weather is getting colder here too and I have to say I am glad for it. I am looking forward to autumn, I love how all the trees turn to shades of orange, yellow and red!

      Anytime Lola, and I love the how pear trees turn the color of candied apples!

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Yes, pumpkin everything is good and I starting burning my pumpkin scented candles smells like fall, and looks like fall since it is overcast and chilly today.

    • kimbacaffeinate

      thanks Brandi, Candace is hosting s tour for it in November and I think she still needs some spots filled.

    • kimbacaffeinate

      The key is to always be working in advance. I am reading books for the second and third week of October now, and have some down and waiting here and there throughout Nov 15th. It is the only way I could maintain this pace.

  15. Laurel-Rain Snow

    What Nora Knew is on my wish list…and I love the cover on your copy! Thanks for sharing.

    Now I’m off to check out some links. Enjoy your week.

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Ya know I think mine is an old cover and I saw the new one *shakes head* I like mine better too!

    • kimbacaffeinate

      I won’t get to mine until closer to release date, but I am hoping it is good!

  16. Jan

    We got some cooler weather by the end of the week, too! I’m ready for it. You got some very good sounding books. White Space sounds especially good…but it doesn’t come out until 2014. 🙁

    Have a great reading week!

      I am scheduling for next year now, this year is pretty much booked..LOL so you will be seeing books for 2014 reviews in my haul…unless something comes along I need! LOL

    • kimbacaffeinate

      perfect for fall and winter reads Villa. I hope you have a wonderful week and cannot wait to read your first Sunday Post 🙂

  17. Adriana

    Hey! Did you put Under Your Skin and White Space on your last waiting on wednesday because you knew you were going to get them? Sneaky… I love the sound of both those books plus Tempestuous.
    Ooh! Do you host “Things That Go Bump in the Night” or is it just a post you made up for your blog? I really want pumpkin scones to come back from Starbucks!
    It’s getting more humid here and it rains all the time. Typical. Have fun reading!

    Adriana recently posted: Sunday Post: 9/15/13
    • kimbacaffeinate

      Actually I found them first, then hunted them down to request and included my link to Wow and got approved for both! LOL
      Things that Go Bump in the Night is a month long blog event here on Caffeinated. Everyday there are reviews, giveaways, guest posts etc. It is totally crazy! However on my sidebar is a link to Something Wicked and you can sign up to link a post to that month long event. Mine is in house.

      • Adriana

        I look forward toThings that Go Bump in the Night on your blog (: Thanks! I will probably join the fun the third way for Wicked. I’m too much of a broke college student to giveaway a book lol. But it will be nice to put in some posts and see what the other blogs are doing.

    I loved all three of the posts in your Around the Blogosphere section this week — great finds! And your new review books look very interesting. I’m also looking forward to your review of Enchanted (which I downloaded but haven’t listened to yet) and seeing what you’ve got coming for Things That Go Bump in the Night.

    Enjoy the cooler weather! It’s turned gorgeous here — sunny and clear and in the low 70s! Perfect!
