The Sunday Post #1

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer
~this meme was inspired in part by - In My Mailbox~
It's a chance to share News. 
A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

I had a busy week this past week, though it wasn't too busy on the blog. I'm still working on my review TBR pile, slowly making progress. This week I reviewed: Forgive Me, I Meant To Do It: False Apology Poems, and The Egyptian. I featured a new book, Shadow On The Wall, by Pavarti K Tyler, and posted two giveaways: Day of Demons anthology, which ends tonight, and 2 books, Accidentally In Love With A...God? and Accidentally Married To A...Vampire?, which ends this coming Saturday. There was also an excerpt from Wife 22, a novel out at the end of the month, and one from About Last Night, out next month. Hmm, ok, I guess the blog was busier than I thought.

For this week, I have a review and giveaway of the mystery Sandman, by Morgan Hannah MacDonald; a review of Unbroken, by Rachel Caine, and a spotlight on Hot Summer, by Judy Powell.

I didn't get any books for review this book, but I did hit up my library's used book sale. I picked up a couple books for my editing work, one for my teaching, and for fun, When Demons Walk, by Patricia Briggs. I actually already own the book but this one had the original cover, and was in good shape. For only fifty cents, how could I resist?

A trip to Walmart for laundry supplies netted me the UF anthology, Dark and Stormy Knights, for less than three dollars. Not a bad day's shopping. :)

How was your week? If you'd like, leave a link to your Sunday Post blog post in the comments.

    1. LOL Collette, the selection in that bin, at my Wal-Mart anyway, was slim, but I'm excited I found the anthology. It's been on my TBR list since it was announced. :D

    2. And I just realized that I misspelled your name. Sorry :(

  5. I always leave my libraries sale with BAGS! I go nuts! lolz. I not only buy for me but I donate to a few local places where the ppl are shut in and I know reading helps me so I hope it does for them too.
