Sunday Post #20

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!

This week was the opposite of the last one. I didn’t receive any books at all so we’ll be skipping that portion, but I did have a few great reads that I’ll mention, so let’s get into it! ^.^

After getting so many books in the mail last week it was both weird and oddly relieving to not receive any this time around. I am trying to make my TBR piles get smaller after all, even though sometimes it doesn’t seem like it. I was much happier with the books I read this week, though Slaughterhouse-Five still bothers me as for how dull it was with such a great premise, but there is nothing to be done about that. Storm was fantastic, Lessons III and The Dragon’s Bride were great novellas, and Attachments increased my adoration for Rainbow Rowell’s writing prowess.

I posted my 2-month wrap-up very late last night so I encourage you to check that out. I talk about how challenges are going, what my favorite and least favorite books have been so far this year, and a few things I am looking forward to in the next couple months. 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’ve read Attachments and it was so good indeed! 😀 I’m trying to get my TBR smaller too but with so many great books out there, that’s so hard to do! Have a great week!

  2. I had to smile at your Kurt Vonnegut review – isn’t it sometimes the case that books from well-known authors turn out to be, well, something to be desired whereas books from complete unknowns knock you over. Will check out our 2-month wrap up, I was planning to write something similar on my blog but didn’t manage Grrrr.

  3. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    Nice! You’re right, it’s good to have that week where you don’t add to the TBR madness! Hope you can knock a few out before you add any more!

    Here’s my STS

  5. I just read your Top Ten Tuesday post and OMG the Yoda cover! I feel like I need to drop everything and find that book. The thought of reading Star Wars in iambic pentameter makes my inner geek swoon.

  6. I completely understand the relief of not getting any new books. I’m trying to make my TBR smaller too but I’m not entirely sure it’s working. I hope you have a great week and happy reading!!
