The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It’s a chance to share news, recap events from the past week, showcase books and things we’ve received and share news about what’s coming up in the week ahead on our blog.
It’s been an odd week to say the least. I’m really ready to hit the reset button and start Monday fresh – I wonder if Kimba has room for me on that vacation she’s taking.
I purchased The Light Tamer by Devyn Dawson, thinking it sounded good for an Indie Friday pick. The synopsis says it’s funny. I guess I’ll see! I received League of Strays and Dearly, Beloved from NetGalley (yay, yay) and The Duke’s Perfect Wife and Almost from Sharon at Obsession with Books from the #RAK program. I think I restrained myself quite well – of course I added about ten books to my Amazon wishlist that I had to practically tape my fingers together to keep from ordering.
What we reviewed this past week:
Cait started off the week Sunday night with a little m/m review for our Naughty Shelf, Gambling Men by Amy Lane.
Things went a little south for me on Tuesday when I had only my second DNF of the year, Fated by Alyson Noël.
Thursday was Her Forbidden Hero by Laura Kaye, which I think fans of category romance will enjoy.
On Saturday, we began our stop on Sherry Soule’s Moonlight Mayhem tour, which includes a little trivia quiz and a giveaway of the ebook version of Beautifully Broken. It’s open internationally and ends this Saturday the 16th.
Coming this week:
Tomorrow Cait has a great review of the new Lucky Harbor book by Jill Shalvis, Lucky in Love (she recommends it!). I’ll be reviewing Vivian Arend’s Wolf Line, something from my TBR pile and an Indie Friday pick. I have something picked out for my Waiting on Wednesday but I reserve the right to change my mind up until the last minute.
I joined the Wicked Wildfire Read-A-Thon hosted by Rebecca at Kindle Fever and April at Shelf Confessions. From June 20th through the 24th, the objective is to read your butt off. I have such a gigantic TBR pile, this can only be good for me. The linky is still open if you want to join up too.
To end on a bit of a sad note…I live in a fairly small city. My family’s been here for ages and have reached the point that if someone else has lived here for more than fifteen years or so, somehow, some way, our lives have intersected. Last Thursday, two teenage girls went missing at local beach and the following day were found deceased in the lake. My parents played euchre with the one of the girl’s grandparents. I was classmates with the same girl’s father. My son worked with and was friends with the girl.
Rest in peace Emma and Sydnie
