Sunday Post #4

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 post my books that I receive in my Saturday Stacking The Shelves post so for my part I focus on the recap/preview parts of Sunday Post.

As usual it has been a pretty fun week here! I finally got to read Dark Light of Day which I had been looking forward to for months and really enjoyed it. I also read both of the books I had received in exchange for reviews and hopefully Derek and Harlan were happy with them! 🙂 The usual memes were a blast this week and I received plenty of great books both in the mail and in eBook format so I’ll be diving into more of those soon too!

This week will have the usual combination of memes and reviews including my review of The Raven Boys which I received an eBook copy of last week and tore into like a madman…or hobbit. I wonder what a madhobbit would look like…maybe like Gollum? Anyway, I digress. So I made a bonus post (link above) on Friday about the two Halloween/October events I will be partaking in. As you can see from the schedule above, and as I am slowly starting to fully grasp, I’m going to be really busy…and updating a lot. I hope that is a good thing for you. o.o Seriously though, I think the next couple weeks will be really fun and I can’t wait to experience all the bookish awesomeness that I know will await me. I really encourage you to go check out that post and if either event seems interesting to you please do join up and have fun with us! You don’t have to be like me (in other words a total nut job) and do every single thing, just reading one book during the read-a-thon or posting on one of the Halloween events would be fantastic! Anyway, there should be something fun for you to read every day so make sure to stop by! ^.^

Thank you for reading! I would love it if you leave a comment either with your own Sunday Post or what you think about what I posted last week or what I will be doing this week! Oh, and how many of you have participated in a read-a-thon? If you have what is your favorite part and if you haven’t what has held you back? Enjoy your Sunday! 🙂

Halloween/October Events I’m Participating In

Halloween/October Events

I am going to be participating in two events that are coming up in the next two weeks. The first one is hosted by Pages of Forbidden Love and is a read-a-thon which is celebrating Bianca’s, who is one of the co-bloggers, 22nd birthday which is on October 22nd. They will be doing the read-a-thon from the 22nd through the 28th and will be doing challenges, have prizes and of course involve a ton of reading. If you would like to join, and I highly recommend that you do since it is more fun with a bigger group, you can sign up here http://www.pages-of-forbidden-love.com/2012/10/15/we-are-hosting-our-first-read-a-thon-22-on-22-read-a-thon-sign-ups/!

I am also going to be participating in Haunted Week which is hosted by Cheyenne at This Girl Reads and will be going on from October 24th through the 31st. Each day there will be a post that you can do about something involving Halloween and connected to books. You can do every post they do or do something completely different, though it is preferred that you stick with the scare/Halloween type of theme(s). If you would like to sign up you can do so here http://thisxgirlxreads.blogspot.com/2012/10/haunted-week-is-coming.html! There is more information on that page as well as a link to all of the daily events that will be going on. If you love Halloween or just enjoy being part of a bookish/blog related event then I definitely recommend signing up!

I can’t to participate in both events! It will allow me to post even more than usual but without the worry of trying to come up with something interesting. ^.^ I hope you sign up too and I can’t wait to read a ton and join in on the spooky goodness. As always thanks for reading! 🙂

Feature and Follow #1

Feature and Follow

Feature and Follow is hosted by the amazing people over at Parajunkee and Alison Can Read and is basically a way for blogs to gain new followers and to find some cool new ones to follow as well. If you do get followed please be courteous and follow them back via their preferred method.  If you would be so kind as to follow me, and I of course will follow back, you can do so via email, Linky or Networked Blogs, I do not have a preference and thank any of you who do follow. Also let me know how you follow me too! 🙂

This week’s question is: “What book do you think would make a great Halloween movie? Please explain in graphic detail of goriness…

For me this was a no-brainer! I would go with the Attic Clowns volumes written by Jeremy C. Shipp! They are an amazing mix of creepy, gorey and humor filled with a variety of odd but oddly intriguing types of clowns. I love each volume and would recommend reading them too! You can check out my mini review of the first two if you would like here to get a gist of what I am talking about. As always thanks for reading, I really do appreciate it and leave a comment either about what you think of the Attic Clowns books or your own FF post, I read every one! ^.^ Enjoy your Friday and your weekend! 🙂
