Sunday Post #8

Sunday Post hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer

Sunday Post

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by the amazing Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It is a chance to share news, 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.

I have decided to make The Sunday Post a monthly feature at the blog and will use it to do a book haul and do a recap of what’s gone on around the blog during the last month.

Indelible by Dawn Metcalf – 4/5 (Review to come)

Croak by Gina Damico – 4/5 (Review to come)

August was a pretty good month in terms of new books. The Wall O’ Books, aka my print TBR, continues to grow and taunt me as if it knows I can’t read all of the pretties anytime soon. Most of the books in the first picture are ones recommended by Kat over at Katytastic and I love her for it since I really needed some contemporaries to go with all of my fantasy/sci-fi/paranormal stuff. Keeper of the Lost Cities & The Treachery of Beautiful Things were both just released in paperback form so I thought it was a great time to grab them. Perdition, The Beginning of Everything, Gated & Indelible were all brand new releases I had on pre-order. All of the Jeremy C. Shipp books were ones I had been meaning to get for a while and now I finally have them on my shelves! Fantasy Life (all about fantasy football) I won by signing up for a fantasy sports website which was pretty cool and Contaminated was won in a giveaway over at My Shelf Confessions!

Month in Review

I hosted a giveaway as part of the Summer Road Trip Giveaway Hop that was very successful in terms of entries!

Participated in The Books, Brains ‘n Blood and Bout of Books readathons!

Revealed my brand new blog schedule!

I also published 8 reviews including one of the best I’ve ever written, Wise Young Fool by Sean Beaudoin!

What’s Happening in September?

The new schedule is here and begins this week! The only exception will be no Mini Review Monday due to this monthly post going up the day before. However you will get Totally Random Tuesday, YA Wednesday, Frodo’s Frisky Friday and Standard Review Sunday this week! I hope you’re excited for all of that because I’m pumped to get those features going in full swing. ^.^ I will also be hosting a giveaway as part of the Off to Oz Giveaway Hop on September 10th! Finally, my review as part of the Nemesis Blog Tour will go up on September 16th and I’d love for you to check it out! Thanks for stopping by, feel free to leave a link to your Sunday Post or whatever other bookish meme you partake in over the weekend and I will be sure to stop by! Enjoy your Sunday and see you next month! 🙂

    • I liked it enough that I ordered Scorch and pre-ordered Rogue right after. XD That has nothing to do with being a bit crazy with book buying, nope. ^.^ It’s good to be back! I’ve always loved your feature, as well as the rest of your bloggy goodness of course, and once a month seems like a good amount for me. 🙂

  2. Before I saw that this was a monthly haul I freaked out over how many books I thought you bought in a week, lol. I’m still jealous of all the awesome books! I’m curious to see what you think of The 5th Wave, it’s definitely one that I loved.

  6. It seems like I’ve been trying to read Soulless for years now. Like you, my TBR books just sit there and stare at me. Accusingly. Or menacingly. Not sure which.
