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

Wahoo! It’s the 100th edition of the Sunday Post.  The first Sunday Post went live in April of 2012 and began with less than twenty participants. Since then we have grown and have reached as many as 85 participants in a given week. When I started the Sunday Post I wanted a meme that not only shared our book hauls and past week but also gave us a chance to uplift others and build a community of blogger friends. I really feel that we have achieved that. You have all become an integral part of my week.  Through your posts, I have gotten to know the person behind the blog and count you among my friends. I hope that you feel the same.

To celebrate I am giving away your choice of an Amazon, B&N, or Paypal Gift card valued at 15.00. This giveaway is for participants of the Sunday Post only, as my way to say thank you! Just answer the one entry question below with your name and blog that you link up.  Thanks everyone and good luck!

  1. Kimberly

    Wow, I remember the first Sunday post, I can’t believe that was back in 2012! I’m so glad to have been able to participate in it (when I can) and to have seen it grow. Congrats Kimberly & I hope you enjoy your book haul!

      thanks Kimberly, I hope your week is wonderful 🙂

  2. Bea

    That little zombie doll is adorable!

    The 100th edition of the Sunday Post, just shy of 2 years. An early celebration is nice. 🙂 It’s a good meme, I like it and I’ve met some nice people.

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Isn’t it cute, Annie Walls made it for me, the author of the Famished trilogy. He is sitting on my bookshelf 🙂 So glad you link up each week Bea 🙂

  3. Cyn

    Yay! Congrats on 100!! I’m glad I discovered Sunday Post! Definitely a great way to catch up with everyone (:
    Can’t wait to see your thoughts on Twisted (Drew always cracks me up) & Murder of Crows, I know you loved that one!
    I love the cover of The Girl with the Wind-up Heart, definitely need to check out that series soon! Hope you have an awesome. Happy reading!

  4. Angie

    I love the little voodoo doll (I think?) in the picture above. Really cool! I am behind this week because of Spring Break but should be doing better with blogging next week. Thank so much for the giveaway. 100th post!! WOW! I have found a few blog blogs to follow and chat with that I never would’ve otherwise. Some of us don’t even read the same genre but their Sunday Posts are always so fun. Thanks for everything!

    Angie recently posted: Sunday Post
    • kimbacaffeinate

      Yes a voodoo/zombie doll..he really is cute. I am glad you enjoy the Sunday Post!

  5. Berls

    I’m still blown away that this is the 100th Sunday Post. It really doesn’t feel like a meme to me, since everyone’s are so different. I have to say, I think you definitely accomplished what you set put to do, the Sunday Post is a high point of my week. I live connecting with the other bloggers through it and I feel that the Sunday post is really how I found my blogging home. Most the bloggers I interact with regularly I met through this blog. 🙂 Thank you for hosting it every week! And for the great giveaway. (BTW – your mom has been in my thoughts, I hope she’s doing better and that you’re holding up with the stress of not being able to be there. Hugs!)

      • kimbacaffeinate

        thanks Angie she is home, stable and doing pretty darn good considering. 🙂

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Yes, I adore that everyone does their own edition of the Sunday Post. MY Mom went home Thursday, and has a nurse and physical therapist. Her blood pressure is final stable. She is still having to tweak meds as some have weird side effects. They both sound wiped out, but she is happy to be with her doggies. Thanks for asking Berls!

  6. Lindy

    Wow!!!! Congrats on your 100th Sunday Post!!! I really feel like I have gotten to know you better through your Sunday Posts, an d I look forward to reading them every week 🙂

      hehe..yes I am 100 year old blogger who still likes hot romances and dystopian novels. bwahaha.

  7. Greg

    Congrats on 100 Kimba! This is such a great group of people (and blogs)and you should be proud. I enjoy being a part of it every week. Thanks for an awesome giveaway too. Hope your coming week is great!

  8. RedIza

    Congrats on your 100 !! I remember reading your meme long before I thought of participating, I’m glad I did, it feels cosy in here 😉 Hope your mother is doing OK ? Have a great sunday !

    RedIza recently posted: Sunday post #7 : What's up ?
    • kimbacaffeinate

      Sweet we like cozy around here! My Mom is home and doing pretty darn good all things considering. So glad you link up!

  9. Peggy

    Congratulations! 100th Edition! For me, this is my #9 and I have to say as well I’m so glad I discovered this as firstly I made good friends but also I can catch up on what everyone has been reviewing and other interesting posts which I may have missed not to mention books to discover to add the the TBR pile. This is my fav meme, and as Berls said, it doesn’t feel like a meme as everyones post is different. If you are a new book blogger, this is the place to start. I remember in the first few weeks I looked at all the posts and just let it all sink in 🙂

    Peggy recently posted: Sunday Post #9 March 23rd
    • kimbacaffeinate

      Peggy that is one of my favorite aspects, our little recaps. Looking forward to your 100th edition of the Sunday Post!

    • kimbacaffeinate

      thanks Naomi, soon it will be your 100th edition:)

  10. Trish

    Congrats on 100 editions Kimba. I stopped numbering mine but I think I’m doing them nearly a year and have only missed the odd few weeks. I love the feel of this meme as I feel I get to know people and loving hearing all their weekly news. And I get to see all my books for the week together which is fun (but at times scary!).
    *raises a coffee mug to the next 100*

    • kimbacaffeinate

      So glad you like the meme, and I love seeing what everyone posted, checking out their hauls and finding a book I must read..LOL I love the around the blogosphere too since we all find different things. Have a great week Trish!

  11. kara-karina

  12. Camille

    Happy 100th!! I’ve a long way to go before I reach that one. ^_^ Thanks for the giveaway opportunity. Looking forward to your reviews especially of Anne Bishop, Emma Chase, and Lorraine Heath. And great haul! The Girl with the Windup Heart looks great. I’ve read the steampunk series that Kady Cross wrote as Kate Cross, I think and I really like it.

    Camille recently posted: Sunday Post (7)

      I have been there done that on pre-orders Jen. I am excited about the sound of Unchained.

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Yes, you should join us! I have made fab friends and found awesome blogs. I am so excited about Sandlin’s book..eep!

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Awe, glad you will be here for the next 100. I love the Famished series and Annie made those voodoo-zombie dolls. Although she won’t let us stick pins in them (in case a piece of her hair got in there) bwahaha! I understand about your meme.

  23. Lark

    Huzzah for the 100th Sunday Post! I love that you host this meme, and have met some of my favorite bloggers through it (including you, of course!) Thank you for choosing to celebrate it with a giveaway.

    You’ve got some yummy books in this week – the Eloisa James and the Kady Cross both look good. And I just read a pretty good review of Mark of the Dragonfly, so I’m looking forward to reading it once the TBR Pile Challenge is over. Meanwhile, I’m trying to make at least some headway on my TBR pile now that I FINALLY got my work project done.

    Have a great week, and again – congratulations on the 100th Sunday Post!

      I don’t really read MG, well not since my kids were that age but the cover is gorgeous and reviews are so good..I might sneak it in! Thanks for your kind words, and I am so glad you’ve made bloggy friends here. I think we have something special! Thanks Lark!!

  24. Laurel-Rain Snow

    Congratulations! I found the Post a few months ago, but it is the bright spot in my week.

    I also love the little events you have throughout the week, as well as your reviews.

    Enjoy your new books!

  25. Angela Adams

    Congratulations on your “anniversary” post! I’m eagerly awaiting your review/thoughts on Emma Chase’s Twisted later in the week.

  26. Whitney

    Congrats on 100 — that is truly amazing! Sunday Post is such a great meme and I love reading everyone’s week in review.

    I really enjoyed your review of Happily Ever After, I have it on my nightstand right now and your thoughts have really encouraged me to read it.

    Whitney recently posted: Sunday Post #20
    • kimbacaffeinate

      Happily Ever After was so different and I quite enjoyed it, thanks Whitney 🙂

  27. Lola

    Congrats on the 100th Sunday Post! I am so glad that when I first started my own blog I found the Sunday Post and I’ve participated in the past 66 weeks :).

    And I think you certainly reached those goals you set out for this meme, I love reading what other bloggers are up to and find an easy post with the links to their other posts that week. I also found new blogger friends thanks to the Snday Post!

    And Thanks for the giveaway and I hope you’ll continue with this meme for a long time to come!

    Lola recently posted: Sunday Post #66
    • kimbacaffeinate

      So glad you enjoy the Sunday Post as much as I do Lola. I remember when you were a co-blogger and than branched out on your own. Memories 🙂

      • Lola

        It feels so long ago that I was a co-blogger at K-books. Although I am still glad I started out like that, it made the step to my own blog that much easier. As I joined the Sunday Post after my blog was a week old the number of the sunday post also counts how many weeks old my blog is :).

        Lola recently posted: Sunday Post #66
        • kimbacaffeinate

          That is cool, Lola I love that we are a part of your countdown 🙂

  28. Jessica

    Oooh nice reads!! LOVED Unchained! It was just pure awesomeness! Sadly it seems the series might be in limbo for a time.

    I got The Girl with the Windup Heart as well! Read it all on Friday as a one day read! Totally amazing and a great end to the series! Hope you enjoy all your new reads!

    Here’s my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower 🙂

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Now I am nervous to start it..gads! Ooo Jessica I am so excited that you felt Girl with the Windup Heart was a good conclusion to the series, that makes me happy!

  29. Jess

    Congrats on the 100th Sunday Post! How exciting! Awesome to see all the goodies you got this week. Lot of unique items, along with books and bookmarks. Happy Sunday!

    • kimbacaffeinate

      thanks Jess 🙂 this was a good week and I love my little voodoo/zombie!

  30. Yvonne

    Happy 100th! That’s amazing! You do a great job with this blog and this meme.

    Great list of books! Have a great week!

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Awe thanks Yvonne, I love blogging/reading and chatting with ya’ll. Can you tell? LOL

  32. Tanya

    Congrats on 100 Sunday Posts! This is a great meme and I love having some place to hook up and share the week! I’m glad I came by too, as I didn’t see your Tips and Tricks in my Bloglovin and I love those posts!

    Tanya recently posted: Sunday Post Edition 29
    • kimbacaffeinate

      I know Tanya..I was so mad! They are having in-house issues and lots of peeps didn’t post on bloglovin’ I wish they had an manual way to pull feed. They did manage to get today’s post up. I saw a significant decline in comments on that post.

  33. miki

    Excellent haul for a 100th editions ( congrats!) i don’t receive enough to make a weekly one so mine it’s only monthly ( thus i can’t participate) but even if i didn’t dare to comment a lot before i really enjoyed reading your post ( and making discovery)
    i did receive allegiant too^^

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Wow, wait Miki you can hook up with us once a week, once a month, etc. Remember library books count and you can always post your past week, week ahead and just life news and pics. We have peeps who post weekly, monthly, occasionally, on a whim etc. I will be sure to clarify my official rules, cause we would love to have you any old time:)

    • kimbacaffeinate

      LOL, I told you I had a voodoo doll *rolls eyes* and you thought I was all talk didn’t you..hehehe. I am still in my pajamas and my ass is asleep, since I have been sitting here since 10am (now 2:24) responding to and visiting Sunday Posters. LOL I am planning to watch Frozen with my daughter next.

  34. Michelle

    Woo! Happy 100th! Is the weather getting colder for you? You tend to get the same weather we do, just sooner and a bit worse. I’m hoping our weather man is wrong but he’s been saying we’re getting snow next week. -_-

    Michelle recently posted: Sunday Post (98)
    • kimbacaffeinate

      We are cold today and suppose to get 1-3 inches tomorrow of the white stuff..personally I am over it! Thanks Michelle and have a wonderful week!!

  35. Candace

    The Girl With the Windup Heart! Can’t wait to read that! Happy 100th! I’ve thought about doing this but I’m so bad about memes since I need to link up and doing the formula of including what I did all week and plan to have next week is a lot of work for me, lol. Maybe once I move to WordPress it might be easier. 🙂 I always enjoy reading everyone else’s anyway!

    • kimbacaffeinate

      You can do your edition of the Sunday post anyway you want from vlog to instagrams. There is no rule, as for the move if you get UBB it has a tool for previous week posts etc. Check out Trish @ Betweenmylines. She uses it. As for me I copy and past the html from week to week and edit out the old and add the new. You will meet new peeps 🙂 food for thought 🙂

    • kimbacaffeinate

      thanks Brandi, I cannot believe how quickly time flies

  36. Mandy

    Congrats on 100!!!! That’s awesome that it’s been so successful. One of my favorite weekly’s. Awesome haul! I’m embarrassed to say I’ve not heard of any of them. Even worse I’ve not heard of the books you reviewed this week so I need to check them all out. Looks like a very busy week. Happy reading and have a great week.

    • kimbacaffeinate

      That is ok Mandy, this way I get to introduce you to some new books and authors 🙂

    • kimbacaffeinate

      thanks Jorie, err weather in Nebraska is crazy..snow early tomorrow 🙁

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Thanks Pamela, time sure flies when you are having fun 🙂

  37. Heidi

    Congrats on a big milestone! I have regularly participated since June of 2012 and I like that the Sunday Post is much more than just sharing the books you receive. Thanks for hosting the event! Here is to many more years of SP to come!

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Thanks Heidi and I am glad you enjoy doing the Sunday Post. I wanted it to be more than books and I think we and others have made it a success. Here is to many more! *lifts hot cocoa*

    • kimbacaffeinate

      thanks Finley, this is a fun meme and a great milestone 🙂

    • kimbacaffeinate
