The Sunday Post- First Edition

The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by
  ~ Inspired by the meme 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.

The Coffee is fresh so grab a cup!

This has been a crazy week all around, and I will be happy to put it behind me. This is a new weekly meme and I would be delighted if you participated. It's the perfect opportunity to recap what happened on your blog and highlight what's coming up. We are all busy and this offers us a chance to see what we might have missed. Plus it offers a place to showcase what we received during the week and give creds to those who made it possible! You can join in every week or as often as you like. The link will be open all week, that way you can post whatever day works for you. 

This week on the blog I reviewed: Angel Condemned, The Kingdom on the Edge of RealityThe Calling and Embraced by Blood. I posted a Waiting on Wednesday and shared a giveaway and excerpt of He Came for Me. If you missed any be sure and check them out.(click on links)

Coming up this week we have some exciting reviews: Eyes of JusticeLife in the Land of ISVanishing Game and Of Poseidon. I'll also be sharing an excerpt of Martuk..the Holy and interviewing Lada Ray author of Gold Train. There will also be a few giveaway so be sure to stop by!

Have an awesome week! I know I will thanks to the release of three highly anticipated books on May 1st; Insurgent by Veronica RothSweet Evil by Wendy Higgins, and The Last Boyfriend by Nora Roberts (BoonsBoro Trilogy #2)Who need sleep right? Have you ordered your copies? Is there a book being released this week that has you excited? Be sure and leave me a link to your news.

I'm interested to see what you think of Amanda Quick's new book! I love all her books, but this one has received so-so reviews.

At April 29, 2012 at 12:30 PM , Blogger Leah said...

Hi Kimba!

I've been looking for a meme to show off my mailbox for a while now. I would've participated in The Story Siren's IMM meme, but you have to review YA books, at least from time to time, in order to participate. As a non-YA reviewer, I didn't feel right participating. Does your Sunday Post meme have this stipulation as well? If not, I'd love to participate!

Thanks! :)

I'm really excited for Code Name Verity, especially after Maggie Stiefvater's review. Glad you grabbed it as well! I'll look for your thoughts on it. And I can't wait to see what you think of Insurgent and Sweet Evil!

Hi Kimba! You had an awesome book week! I love the look of your new meme, and that you review past posts and highlight what's coming up in the next week. I'm still deciding what I'm going to do now that I'll no longer be participating in IMM. I'm taking a week off to figure it out. You may see me here next week!

I hope you love Die for Me, and I can't wait to hear what you think of What a Boy Wants!

Great books Kimba! Code Name Verity missed my Sunday Session post by about 10 minutes but I've heard great things about it!

Love The Sunday Post :-D

I cannot wait for Insurgent!!! I'm so excited!!

And, I hope you are LOVING half-blood! That series is a favorite of mine :)

At April 29, 2012 at 3:48 PM , Blogger manda-rae said...

Die For Me is the only book I recognize in your haul. And it was awesome. I definitely feel like I've been living under a rock after looking at your haul. I'll for sure keep your meme in mind for next week. Out of all the ones I've been looking at, this one may suit me the best. Bt we'll see (next week's will probably be a mish-mash of meme's until I can figure out which one suits me best). Great haul this week!

Thanks for visiting my IMM.

Awww, this Sunday Post meme is totally cute, Kimba! :) I've been seeing so many different memes to showcase books we've gotten, and this is one of the awesome ones! There are so many books I don't recognize but think sound awesome in your haul, but I think you should read Die For Me First! That one was really sweet, and even though it wasn't perfect, I just finished reading an ARC of the next one and completely loved it! ;)

Awesome book haul this week, Kimba! I hope you enjoy them all!

At April 29, 2012 at 4:47 PM , Blogger Michelle @ Much Loved Books said...

Great haul this week. What A Boy Wants looks like a good read. I still can't decide if I want to read Die For Me.

This week is an awesome week for book releases! I'm looking forward to Bitterblue and While He Was Away the most, and I pre-ordered Insurgent even though I haven't read Divergent yet (but I'm pretty sure I'll love it).

Who needs sleep, indeed. :D

Hi Kimba.

Firstly, apologies for the delayed response and nice to see a new meme out there. I don't mind sharing a cup of coffee... or in my case, Redbush Tea.

As for the choice of books for this week, there's a couple there that has piqued my interest, namely "Code Name Verity" which although it is targeted at YA is a story which has some real resonance about the women who spied for the Allies during World War II and "Die For Me". I haven't read the first book in this series, but it's set in Paris and I'm getting a hankering to do a City Break there some time in the near future.

Sounds great :) I hope you enjoy your books.

Great meme, Kimba! I love the badge :)

I really want to read Die For Me. That's on my TBR list but just haven't had a chance to read it yet.

Hope you enjoy all your new books! And thanks for stopping by to check out my first STS:
