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.
  • This is your news post, so personalize it. Include as much as you want or as little.
  • Be creative, it can be a vlog or just a showcase of your goodies.

This is my first time participating in this meme.  Normally I would do Sunday Salon, but I thought it was a time to try something new.

What Happened Last Week:

  • Wicked Wildfire Read-a-Thon (June 20 - June 24) - There is still one more day left on this RAT.  It has been a great opportunity for me to catch up on some reading.  Since I am still trying to read the books I had planned to read in April.  I'm so far behind.
  • Friday Finds:  I added 11 more books to Mt. TBR  which brought the total number of books on my official Goodreads to read list to 265 on friday.  Way to many.
  • Reviewed:  On Friday, I finished my review of  Oxford Messed Up: by Andrea Kayne Kaufman.  
  • Stacking The Shelves: I added two more books to Mt. TBR and purchased A Tree Grow in Brooklyn, which has been sitting on the mountain for some time now.  Mt. TBR is officially 267 books strong.
What's Happening This Week:
  • GiveAway:  This week I'm holding my first giveaway for 2012.  I am giving away my copy of Oxford Messed Up: by Andrea Kayne Kaufman.  The giveaway only last one week, from June 24 until July 1st.  You can enter here.
  • Reviews:  My review of One Blood by Qwantu Amaru should be done by Monday.
  • Teaser Tuesday:  This Tuesday's teasers will be from The Keepers of the House by Shirley Ann Grau.  Thanks to NetGalley.
  • If I am lucky *crosses fingers*  I can start Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout by the end of the week but that all depends on The Keepers of the House.
Don't forget to enter the giveaway.

Happy Reading,


  1. Wow great week and I have had so much fun with the WW read-a-thon. My tbr pile sounds like yours. hehehe it constantly demands to be fed. Thanks for joining the <a href=">The Sunday Post</a> I am now following you and look forward to reading your reviews. Have an awesome week.

  2. I wish I could have done the wicked fire read along but this week was too time. I am curious about that Oxford book I haven't heard of it before. I hear you about the TBR pile.
