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 such an exciting week ahead for you all! Things that Go Bump in the Night kicks off on October 1st and the Fraterfest Read-a-thon begins on Thursday, October 3rd. It’s not to late to grab your favorite mystery, horror, paranormal or urban fantasy and join in the fun.  This week also begins Something Wicked so be sure and visit the host daily. This week is also my birthday and somehow all of my children managed to take the day off from work and my daughter is coming home from college. I am looking forward to spending time with them. Today is National Coffee  Day and participating Dunkin Donuts, Wawa, Krispy Creme, Starbucks and McDonald’s are celebrating by giving away free cups of coffee. Now if you plan it right, you can be caffeinated all day!

      I am really excited about Delia it sounds so good. Thanks Kimberly, my daughter arrives Monday night and will stay until late Tuesday after we have cake and coffee. I have dropped major hints about the dinner menu and am hoping I do not have to cook..LOL I will be glad to have them all together since at 22, 20 and 19 it gets harder and harder to have them all around the table.

  4. Berls

    Happy Birthday! How great that your kids can be with you to celebrate, I hope it’s a wonderful time 🙂

    I can’t wait for your review of Alienated – I wanted that one, but Netgalley decided I wasn’t cool enough LOL. Which is probably best, I have books coming out all over the place right now!

    Super excited for Fraterfest 🙂 Gonna be a great week!

      thankfully Alienated doesn’t release until 2014, I was worried about fitting it in for review. As for books busting out at the seams..welcome to blogging honey!

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Mine is the first..yep we Libras rock! Hope you feel better soon, you have had the funk all week.

  5. Richa

    Happy national coffee day! I think that’s really awesome, haha.
    Omg, Alienated is amazing <3 I loved it so much. Definitely my new favourite alien book!
    Congrats on the Meg Cabot prize pack, I'm excited to read the book too 🙂

      thanks Cricket, I love the cover for Alienated and have had luck with Hyperion books this year 🙂

  6. Dee

    Great haul Kim! I have Delia’s Shadow too. I am going to read it before Halloween (that’s the goal)… I heard it’s really good and creepy! >.< I need to read The Shining too. It's one of those I can't believe I've never read..

    Happy Reading!

    Happy birthday!!! I hope you have a great day and that you are spoiled by your family.

    National Coffee Day….wow I didn’t know about that day. I just found out that here in Australia it’s on the 22 November, a while to go for us. Enjoy your free coffee’s.

    Have a great week.

    Looks like I’m in the wrong nation today, enjoy your free coffees 🙂 That’s great that you have all the family around for your birthday. Makes it that much more special and memorable.
    Ohhh Alienated looks so cute and the synopsis is promising.
    Happy reading 🙂

    • kimbacaffeinate

      thanks Trish, enjoy your week as well. I love the cover of Alienated and hope it delivers.

  9. Sally

    That bridal shower kit looks like it could be a fun night! Happy birthday as well (and coffee day). I am joining up now for Fraterfest, as I got through some fab books from my TBR pile last year.

    Enjoy all your new reads!

  10. Maja (The Nocturnal Library)

    I have Delia’s Shadow too, but the reviews so far are making me doubt my decision to request. And Alienated looks so lovely, hopefully my request will be approved and I’ll get to read it soon.
    Have a fabulous week, Kim!

    • kimbacaffeinate

      I never look at reviews on books I receive..LOL I love the synopsis and hope it delivers for me!

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Ooo good to know Vilia, I love the sound of it and the cover is gorgeous.

  11. Jan

    Happy Birthday! It’s so great your kids will be home. Thanks for the heads up on National Coffee Day. I’m definitely heading out to at least a couple places!

    I’m getting ready for Fraterfest Read-a-thon! I hope you have a great week.

      Enjoy all of your Halloweenyish books and Fraterfest should be a blast!

  13. gaele

    Mice haul – You are planning a bridal shower now? It will be interesting to see the reviews of the darker titles – I won’t read most of them – but there may be some that will tweak my interest. I just hate the results…

    HAPPY Birthday!!!

      The bridal shower is for the main character..LOL Good excuse to get together with friends and enjoy some wine and good food!

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Randy Yates is my new book boyfriend..yum! Glad Alienated is good, I won’t get to it until the end of the year.

  14. Whitney

    Doctor Sleep has been on my radar but I think I need (or want) to read The Shining first. I hope you enjoy it and your fabulous haul of books.

    Happy Birthday! Have a fantastic day with your family.

    • kimbacaffeinate

      I think that it could work as a standalone, but there are enough references to the Overlook Hotel that I would read the Shining’s a classic!

  15. Belle Read

    It’s great that you are going to have everyone together for your birthday! What great kids. Happy birthday.
    Thanks for the heads up on it being National Coffee Day and the opportunity to be caffeinated all day. Sounds good to me.
    You have some great books for review. A couple of them are already on my TBR. I have started to lineup my Christmas reads too.
    I have got to pick up a copy of Doctor Sleep. Are you doing the read-along? I am not planning on it myself, as I have some other things going on, but it sounds like fun.

    Happy birthday! How exciting that family members can all gather around.

    Your books look tempting, too….I’m curious about the Meg Cabot book…an author I’ve been noticing, but haven’t yet tried.

    • kimbacaffeinate

      these will be my first Cabot books but I have heard lovely things about her!

  17. Rita_h

    The Christmas Cookie Collection looks like something I can sink my teeth into (pun intended). Glad you got Doctor Sleep. I want to read it but will wait a bit to get it. Enjoy!

    • kimbacaffeinate

      I am over 50% done and trying to savor it. I actually force myself to put it down.

  18. Kristilyn (Reading in Winter)

    That bridal shower gift is awesome!! I’ve heard that’s a really good series. 🙂 And yay for some Stephen King!

  19. Jenna

    I don’t drink coffee. I guess I’ll have to wait until January 31 for National Hot Chocolate Day.

    I’m looking forward to Alienated. I wasn’t sure on it after reading the description so I didn’t request it. I’m definitely going to be scouring reviews.
