The Sunday Post ~Sharing News and Books~

The Sunday Post ~ 8th Edition
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It's a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.
Another week has flown by, this week I shopped for clothes for the cruise. Confession: I hate shopping, hate the mall and would be perfectly happy if the only store I ever entered was a bookstore. LOL I also scheduled the Sunday Posts for while I am away, and each will show where I am..and what will be happening on my blog. If the opportunity allows, I will include pictures of my adventure. The coffee is fresh, so grab a cup and as always be sure and visit the participating Sunday Post blogs.

This past week I brought you reviews of:
I also shared:
This week on the blog I will have reviews of :
I will also feature:

Now that Borders is gone (and a few other stores) the mall has become one of my hated places as well. I look forward to hearing about your adventure, it seems like it's going to be a lot of fun! I will be stopping by for your review on Shadow of Night.
I hope you enjoy your weekend!

Every Day looks awesome! I'll have to come back and read your review of it. The cover of Undertow always catches my eye. I put it on my list awhile back. I forget what it's about, but I think it was kind of dark right? Congrats on winning! Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday!
