The Sunday Post ~sharing blog news and book haul

The Sunday Post ~ 26nd 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. 
I have to laugh, this weeks book haul is very eclectic which is exactly how my bookshelf looks. I read all genres from horror to romance; YA and adult. I love mixing things up! I get burned out if I read the same genre day in and day out. How about you?



Last week on the blog I brought you: 
This week on the blog look for:
  • Pretty When She Kills by Rhiannon Frater (review-giveaway)
  • Phantom by Laura DeLuca (spotlight-giveaway)
  • Blood by Moonlight by Jocelynn Drake, Terri Garey, and Caris Roane (review-giveaway)
  • Spooktacular Blog Hop (giveaway)
  • The Restorer by Amanda Stevens (review-giveaway)
  • Rot and Ruin by Jonathan Maberry (review
  • Foretold: 14 Tales of Prophecy and Prediction edited by Carrie Ryan (review-giveaway)
Around the Blogosphere:

  • Check out Brodie@Elesinian Mysteries and her guest post "Converting A Reluctant YA Reader, Dr. Suess Style." It is positively hilarious!
  • Lisa @ Paranormal and Urban Fantasy Reviews started a new feature called "News You Can Use". She offers information about books, blogs, authors and other interesting tid-bits. Love this new feature!

It's good to have a variety of books and genres. I refuse to narrow myself to one or two, there are too many good books out there. Enjoy!

Looking forward to what you think of The Uninvited, Kimba! It just sounds so deliciously creepy :) Also everyone talks about Lori Foster, I'd better read her too! Enjoy all your lovely books!

The Uninvited sounds totally freaky!! I'll be keeping my eye out for your review on that one.

I'm not normally a romance kinda gal, but I just love the cover for His Mistress by Christmas! So pretty!! And I just love Christmas books as well.

Hope you enjoy all your goodies, Kimba!

Hehehe..you just had me racing to GR to check out the blue cover and I like that one too, although this one is creepy! I read very few contemporary especially YA, and am excited about Uses for Boys..although I think it is going to be more of a heart string book.

The Uninvited looks so creepy! I like the other cover better, though, the blue one. Also, I hope Uses for Boys is sort of hilarious and quirky, which is what I imagine, because the title makes me giggle.

You had a great week Kimba! and also received some wonderful books :) I love Lori Foster's 'Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor' series so will have to give her new book a go.

I am really keen to read you thoughts on The Uninvited, I received it a few weeks back but it doesn't seem like a book for me.

Sorry I am late stopping by! I have been running around like a mad woman this past week :)

Happy reading!
