I really liked 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.' I hope the movie doesn't suck.

Sounds like a good week for you!

Kimba, I'm having issues on my own blog with the Sunday Post button. I've been inserting it in HTML and it shows up while I'm creating the post, but once it's published, it hasn't been showing up on the published blog post. Has anyone else reported this issue?

Looking forward to your thoughts on Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter!!

I can't wait to see what you think of Dearly, Beloved and I have to find First Frost. I haven't read that one. I really like that series. Thanks for hosting the Sunday Post..

I love your new look! It's very bright and fresh. :)

I saw Dearly, Beloved on NetGalley yesterday and hit that request button HARD and fast. I don't know if they'll approve me but I'm going to bug the heck out of them until they at least consider me if they reject me the first time. I loved the first book so much, it's going to break my heart if/when Bram and Nora can't be together.

I just joined the read-a-thon, thanks for the link - it looks like fun and I can use any prodding available to sit down and read as much as possible.

I'm not that into watching movies (I'm weird, I know), so I can't wait to hear what you think about the Abraham Lincoln book. I've had high hopes about it.

Thanks for hosting!!

Thanks for sharing,

I just saw the previews to the movie Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter! It looked so good, but now I think I need to read the book first! Great books this week! Enjoy :)

I'll be interested to see what you think of the book of Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter. I read it when it first came out.

Thanks for stopping by my non-traditionalSunday Post. I'll be back to talking about books again next week. But these weekend. We just miss our kitty.

I'm a bit behind on reading blogs but I def want to read your review of Blackout. I don't have a Sunday Post this week since I was away most of the week and neglected my poor blog.
