Sunday Post #12

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.

This begins my weekly posting of Sunday Post so that I can provide a recap of books I read, talk about what is coming up next week, and discuss any books I received in the past week.

Books I Received for Christmas

 Reboot by Amy Tintera – I was on the fence for this one, but I liked the premise enough to put it on my list and I got it, sweet!

 Resist by Sarah Crossan – I still need to read Breathe, but I have a good feeling about these books and was thrilled to see the pretty cover of Resist after I tore off the wrapping paper.

 The Future of Us by Jay Asher – This was my gift to me because of how much I loved Thirteen Reasons Why, can’t wait!

Last Week on the Blog

Goals and Challenges for 2014 – Also includes my weekly schedule for this year!

Killing My Kindle: The Sorcerer’s Daughter by Larry Kollar – My first post on the new eBook feature!

Frodo’s Frisky Friday: Taken by the Centaurs by Celestia Dew – Things get a bit naughty and very humorous.

Book of the Week: Bang by Lisa McMann – Another new feature and me gushing like crazy!

——————————————————————————————————————————————–

Books Read Last Week

The Sorcerer’s Daughter by Larry Kollar – 5/5 (Review above)

Bang by Lisa McMann – 5/5 (Review above)

Taken by the Centaurs by Celestia Dew – 5/5 (Mini-review above)

Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally – 3/5 – I thought this was pretty good but the MC kinda drove me nuts in the 2nd half.

The Forest of Hands and Teeth – 4/5 – Same thing with Catching Jordan except I liked the story and dialogue a LOT, the MC was just incredibly whiny and indecisive.

Fantasy Life by Matthew Berry – 5/5 – I enjoyed taking a break of fiction to read about fantasy football. Yes, that totally makes sense.

  2. Reboot was pretty good but the romance let me down but a lot of people love it so hopefully you’ll be one of those! 🙂 I need to read the Breathe series soon, it sounds so good. Hope you enjoy both! Happy Weekend!
