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 coffee is fresh so grab a cup! 

It's the third Sunday in May and the flowers are all in bloom. We have been barbecuing in the backyard and we are all eagerly anticipating the long lazy days of summer. I have had a great time participating in the Bout' of Books read-a-thon and you can see my progress here
This week on the blog I featured reviews of The Last Boyfriend, Intangible, Crystal Gardens and a TBR pile read: At Grave's End. I featured two books for Waiting on WednesdayI am currently participating in the Love is in Bloom Giveaway Hop, so be sure and enter for your chance to win a romance book of your choice(valued up to $15.00). 
Coming up this week we have reviews of Dark Magic, Sweet Evil, Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake, Croak and Against the Sun. In addition I will have a review of Spectral for the Tribute Blog tour and another Waiting on Wednesday.
I received some great books so be sure and check them out. If you'd like to be a part of the Sunday Post, link up and be sure and mention me and the meme on your post. The Sunday Post is your news letter, so customize it to suit your needs. It can be a vlog, a showcase of goodies or a simple news letter.

Amazing mailbox, Kimba! Cannot wait for your review of Dark Magic :) Will be posting my haul soon. :)

Great books Kimba! I've seen Starcrossed a lot before so I wonder if it's any good. The cover of Last Stand looks really scary, though! Anyway, enjoy all your new books :)

My haul for this week

I've been wanting to read Starcrossed. But there are just so many good books that were released recently... LOL.

Last Stand looks... er... scary. I'm not into horror. I hope you enjoy it though.

Wow, the zombie book looks seriously creepy :o :o
And I'm seriously curious about Dark Magic, so I hope you'll enjoy it!

I wish we had flowers. We still have snow! Lol.

I loved Embers! Sparky ROCKS! Starcrossed was a good read, too.

I hope you enjoy all of your books!

Ooo, I didn't know there was a second Feyland book! I'll have to check that out; I liked the first one a lot. I'm actually reading Dark Magic myself right now, so hopefully it turns out well! Enjoy your books!

I love that Dark Magic cover....I'll look forward to that review! PS. Thank goodness my TBR doesn't ask to be fed! It's already out of control!

At May 20, 2012 at 9:08 AM , Blogger Bea said...

Embers has been sitting in my TBR pile for umm, well, a year and a half. Sigh. But I follow Sparky on Twitter, he's pretty funny. And you're right, the TBR is a hungry, mighty beast that must be appeased. LOL

At May 20, 2012 at 9:37 AM , Blogger Melissas Midnight Musings said...

I hope you enjoy all those! The cover for The last stand on Zombie Island is truly creepy!

I envy your weather and a lovely copy of Dark Magic, Kimba! :) Enjoy all your reads!

Great haul this week Kimba! Dark Magic sounds good - I can't wait to read your thoughts of it. All the other ones look awesome too - I've been dying to read Starcrossed forever! I hope you enjoy it. Happy reading!

Hi Kimba! I am glad you created this nice little newsie meme. It is nice to see alternatives, even though I never participated in IMM (personal preference)

I also got Starcrossed! So excited for it! Enjoy all your new books! :D

I loved Starcrossed and you gave me a great news with the Big Sky Mountaim. Read the first one and was waiting for this to hit NetGalley. That Shannon Stacey book is part of a series? Because the cover is Kowalsky all the way.

All those covers look so gorgeous... until you get down to the zombie cover!
The only one I've read out of these is Starcrossed, but I hope you enjoy reading them all.

The only one of those I've managed to read is Starcrossed, which I thought was pretty good.

Thanks so much for hosting this feature!

I loved Dark Magic! I'll be interested to see what you think. My review is herehere.
I'm afraid I was kind of a bad girl last week. My Stacking the Shelves got huge! And then this week's Sunday Post has way too much to do on it.
So glad next week is a three-day weekend!

Barbecues in the backyard sound like so much fun! We had gorgeous weather this past weekend, and our pool was opened (I live in an apartment building), but I need a new bathing suit! I heard we got new barbecues out back, so I'm going to have to check them out - the others were ones you had to light and they scared me so I never used them lol.
Great haul of books. I'm only familiar with a couple of them, so I'll have to check the others out!

Oooh, I read the first book in the series by Sarah MacLean and absolutely LOVED it, but I haven't had a chance to read the others yet! So I'll be keeping an eye out for your review of Ten Ways to be Adored :)
