The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by 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 your blog in the week ahead. You can find the info here:
It's been a good week and yet things were pretty silent at Girl Plus Books. I spent a lot of time getting caught up with everyone else's blogs - which resulted in ignoring my own. Yeah, one of these days I will find a balance but it sure hasn't happened yet. Does anyone else struggle with this? If I focus on consistent posts here I don't have the time to keep up with all the wonderful blogs I enjoy. But if I spend time reading and commenting everywhere else... well you see the dilemma. How do you strike a balance between the two? I'd love to hear any tips or some magical system you have in place that allows you to do it all. That exists, right?
Yesterday I met up with my younger sister to celebrate her birthday. I had purchased one of her gifts over a month ago which was, coincidentally, a Prince
t-shirt. Terri has been a huge fan of Prince since the 80's. His music provided the soundtrack to our teen years.
Finished: Hothouse Flower (Addicted #2.2, Calloway Sisters #2) by Krista and Becca Ritchie
Current: Him (Him #1) by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy
Unpopular opinion time: I wasn't blown away by Throne of Glass and never continued with the series. When I was last chatting with my friend Hope and saying that maybe I should just realize that fantasy is not my genre, she swore that the Falling Kingdoms series would be different. I'm still unconvinced but the cover is quite pretty and sometimes that's a perfect reason to buy a new book. Amiright?
Blurred Lines - Lauren Layne: Like I was supposed to resist this one for 99 cents on Amazon?
Dearest Clementine boxed set - Lex Martin: The entire trilogy was on sale for $4.99 and I'd just seen a blogger friend rave about it so I made it mine.
The Debt - Tyler King: This was offered to me for review by the publisher and it sounds right up my alley.
How was your week? Any new books? Any news to share?
Fill me in... I'd love to hear!
