Sunday Post #14

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 love participating in Sunday Post because 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 Bought

I went a bit crazy this week, but it was a needed pick-me-up because I’ve been sick for ~2wks and it’s getting to me. Here we go!

POMI cover Pigments of My Imagination by Angela Kulig – I’ve read and reviewed this already (loved it), but I needed a physical copy.

 Roomies by Sara Zarr & Tara Altebrando – Heard mixed things about this one but I’m a sucker for school settings.

 Winger by Andrew Smith – School settings again, also a lot of people have been raving about it lately.

not a drop to drink  Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis – Too much hype from Epic Reads during Tea Time, had to.

 The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker – This is all Kat from Katytastic, check her channel out!

 Vitro by Jessica Khoury – Saw it highlighted in new releases somewhere.

 The Unseemly Education of Anne Merchant by Joanna Wiebe – Same as Vitro & awesome premise!

Article 5 by Kristen Simmons – 4/5 – MC whined/obsessed over love interest a bit much, but great story.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————

This was a tough week as it was my second battling sickness, but book-wise it was another excellent one. I am still a tiny bit ahead on my challenges, this was the first week of the spring semester for college (I got ahead and did my homework for the month), and I enjoyed all of the books I read. Pivot Point made the week by itself, so freaking good!

Stop by tomorrow for Mini Review Monday to read about one of the best anthologies you’ve probably never heard of! 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 check it out! Enjoy your Sunday! ^.^

  1. I reviewed the Unseemingly Education of Anne Merchant this past week. It is full of twists and turns and definitely different than most boarding school stories. Hope you are feeling better and good luck in your new classes. My Sunday Post…

  3. Hope you feeling better soon. Books are always the perfect lci-me-up

  4. I’ve been really curious about Not a Drop to Drink as well…there sure has been a lot of hype around that one! Enjoy!!

  5. It sucks that you’ve been sick, I hope you’re feeling better now.
    You’ve read so many books last week too! I guess your big year goal is going well 🙂 I’d have a hard time doing that and having so many posts, but keep it up.
    Have a good week!

    • More sick than ever unfortunately. =/ Last week was a decent reading week because I read 3 on Sunday, otherwise pretty poor actually. I’m just trying to stay a couple posts/books ahead until I feel better, hopefully I can keep it up somehow. Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Hope you feel better soon, but at least you have pretties to read. Right? 🙂

    January 19, 2014 at 1:40 pm

    • I have more pretties to read than I know what to do with. o_o It’s a pretty good “problem” to have. 😛

  7. I should have given you a copy! I will put a signed one in your box–isn’t it huge? It’s the size of an art book—the next version has a new cover and is trade paperback size.

    I really want to read NOT A DROP TO DRINK, but I will wait for your review!

    January 19, 2014 at 9:50 pm

    • I would just go ahead and read it. There is no telling when I will get to reading any particular book, and I’ve only heard good things. ^.^

  8. I hope you start feeling better soon! The flu that’s going around is pretty rough this time around…and persistent. I really want to read The Golem and the Jinni, it seems like it’s an amazing book.
