BEA'S BOOK NOOK "I can't imagine a man really enjoying a book and reading it only once." C. S. Lewis “If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.” ― Oscar Wilde

The Sunday Post #3


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. 

Happily, the past week was a little calmer. I did far fewer reviews and posts, which allowed me to indulge in ... reading! As well as continue my ongoing re-organization of my condo, a belated, and much overdue, spring cleaning. Which, I'm sorry to say, includes pruning some books. I may, after I go through them all, see which ones are in good enough shape to offer up in a giveaway and do a belated spring cleaning giveaway. The rest, depending on their condition, will go to the local used bookstore, the library used book sale, or passed on to friends and family.

So, the recap. Last week's reviews included Blackout by Mira Grant (AWESOME series. MUST READ!!!) and Unbroken by Rachel Caine. I had a giveaway, now ended, of Hot Summer by Judy Powell and I featured Once Her man, Always Her Man by Heather Long. 

Now, the best part of the week - BOOKS! 

I bought Alana's Surrender by KT Grant. KT is doing a guest post for me on June 29th and then the next week I'll be featuring the book on July 2nd. I also plan, tentatively, to review the book sometime in the week ending July 7th. That's subject to change depending on when I have my surgery and how caught up I get on promised reviews.

I received a couple books for review (I know, I know. I have a hard time saying "No".), all of them are ARCs. Thank you Random, Mira, and Berkley!
