The Sunday Post ~sharing blog news and book haul

The Sunday Post ~ 28th 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 spent most of the week sick, which wasn't any fun, but I am recovered and excited for the month ahead. Things that Go Bump in the Night has come to an end, although some giveaways are still open; so be sure and enter. Congrats to all the winners and a heartfelt thanks to all the sponsors who made it possible. There is a new event I am co-hosting in February called Fiery Hot Reads for Icy Cold Nights and you can join in the fun. So be sure and check it out.

There are so many books up there, I actually don't even know which to comment on. o.o Hope you enjoy your reads! (And I'll check out that video now! I hope it's not about what I actually considered making a video about, one day, though. XD)

Well I hope you are on the mend now! The only good thing about sick is extra time to lounge about and read. Whew it is nice I am sure to wrap Bump in the Night, I am relieved that Wicked is done! No more craziness for awhile. Hooray for Fire and Ice looking foward to making this am epic event! Wow! That is a load of books, I am still focused on the goal of trimming the pile and it is working! Hope this week is a better week for you!
