The Sunday Post #42 ~sharing blog news and book haul

The Sunday Post ~ 42nd 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. 
Oh boy..I have been reviewing ARC's like a mad-woman and have almost reached the end of my two month mishap. You see I broke my own rules about not accepting more than two books for review a week. Somehow the authors and publishers tempted me with shiny covers. *nods head* So for the months of January and February I found myself with four books a week for review. *gasps* At this moment I have one book left for February and then it will be time to read all of the new releases I snagged the past few weeks. *bounces* Have an awesome week and I hope you have been enjoying the Fire and Ice many shiny books to win!

Oh my, The Golem and the Jinni. Those two things are like chocolate and peanut butter to me. *marks it TBR*

I am so behind on my visits! (Sorry) I'm having a 'woe is me' week..

You received some amazing books! I bought Sins and Needles & can't wait to start on it and I downloaded Lonely Souls as well - I'm sooo excited for Everneath! I loved the first book.

A nice haul Kimba! Happy reading :)
