The Sunday Post #4

The Sunday Post is a new meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer that offers an opportunity to recap the past week, showcase what's coming up on your blog, and share what books you got for the week.

This week I published reviews of Insurgent (Veronica Roth), The Dragon's Path (Daniel Abraham), and Froi of the Exiles (Melina Marchetta). Next week you'll see reviews of Dark Magic (James Swain), Shadow Bound (Rachel Vincent), Where Things Come Back (John Corey Whaley), and The Eternity Code (Eoin Colfer) as well as a discussion post, if everything goes as planned. (It usually doesn't, but that's okay.)

Yesterday I found an amazing used bookstore that was stuffed floor to ceiling with stacks and stacks of books. I managed to limit myself to three by some miracle:

Cold Magic by Kate Elliot
Diplomacy of Wolves by Holly Lisle
Arabian Nights (Signet Classic)

I also got Shadow Bound by Rachel Vincent from NetGalley, and I've already read it. It was amazing!

Finally, Anthea Sharp sent me her new book in the Feyland series, The Bright Court. I really liked the first one and can't wait to start the sequel!

In other news, I have finally ordered a new router because mine doesn't work for more that two and a half minutes at a time. I know I've been behind on comments, which makes me sad, but in a week or so I will not have to be really uncomfortable to use my computer and will be able to catch up.

What's new on your shelves this week?


  1. Great week on the blog, I will check out the reviews I missed. I am curious about Cold Magic. I love used bookstores! A good router makes all the difference. Have an awesome week and thanks for being a part of The Sunday Post

  2. I love Melina Marchetta books and I can´t wait to read Froi of the Exiles.

  3. Sounds like an amazing week in review :D And I loved used bookstores! Great haul!! :)


I love your comments! I try to respond to them...eventually!

This is now an award-free blog. I love and totally appreciate that you thought of me, but I know myself better than to think I would be organized enough to pass them along, and that doesn't seem fair.

Finally, if you're posting a URL, the code to make it actually link to your site is <.a href="your URL">your text<./a>, without the periods.
