The Sunday Post ~sharing blog news and book haul

The Sunday Post ~ 27nd 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. 
The past few days have been windy and cold..brr. We also saw a few snowflakes..yikes! We have spent the past two weekends helping our daughter paint her new home, and today I plan to sit by the fire and read. On a bookish note, I met my challenge of reading 200 books for 2012 on Friday, and last month completed the eBook challenge by reading 150 eBooks this year. I am still working on the TBR pile challenge and need to read 29 more books from my TBR pile( published in 2011 or later) With all of the new books in my pile I am not sure I will meet it, but it will be fun to try!!

Last week on the blog I brought you: 
This week on the blog look for:
  • Sweetblood series author Laurie London (guest post-giveaway)
  • Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet by Darynda Jones (review-giveaway)
  • The Shining by Stephen King (review-giveaway)
  • The King's Agent by Donna Russo Morin (review)
  • Seven Nights in a Rogue's Bed by Anna Campbell (review)
  • Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi (review)
Around the Blogosphere

  • Please check out Katertot's Sherlock Holmes review. Katertot is Cheles @A Belle's Tale daughter, who is in the eighth grade. I love seeing our youth embrace reading and think it's awesome she writes such lovely reviews. Stop by and say Hi.

I am INSANELY jealous that you got Love and Other Perishable Items! Seriously, I don't even know what else you got this week after my brain zeroed in on that one. I LOVE Aussie writers and am DYING to read this!
