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:
Happy weekend! The big news here this past week was Hurricane Hermine. Thankfully by the time it reached my area it was downgraded to Tropical Storm Hermine and it didn't pack the same punch as it did on the west coast of the state. As usual, people over-reacted, businesses closed, schools closed - crazy. I actually appreciated it because the roads were practically deserted on my commute to the office on Friday. Ha! We've actually had thunderstorms that produced more wind and rain so, in my area at least, it was much ado about nothing.
I started a Freebie Friday feature this week and I've been so pleased with the response. I'm excited to pass some books along to others who want them while also making some more room on my bookshelves. :)
Lastly, I have to share my favorite new pretty - my Betsey Johnson backpack. I adore Betsey Johnson bags and have been carrying the same one for a couple months now (so unlike me because I switch bags constantly). My friend Hope (the same Hope that created Best In Books) and I were just texting about the backpacks a few weeks back and she bought herself a gorgeous black and white polka dot one. I've had my eye on them since then and yesterday I hit the jackpot. Behold the fabulousness (that's a word, right? LOL) of this pink and black beauty. It's official: I'm in love.
Friday, September 2: I debuted a Freebie Friday feature this week and I'm super excited about it! I have quite a selection of books that I'm giving away and the winner gets their pick of whichever book they want. There's still a few days left to enter so if there's anything that catches your eye - it could be yours!
Some Kind of Perfect - Krista & Becca Ritchie
I put it off as long as I could but I finally did it. I've had Some Kind of Perfect since it released in May but I wasn't ready for it to end. But I finished it this past week and oh my heart. I'll miss these characters desperately. *sobs*
Tell the Wolves I'm Home - Carol Rifka Brunt
I'm listening to this one on audio and at halfway through I'm still not really sure how I feel about it. I heard of this one from Margot Wood in an Epic Reads video and she raved about it... but for me the jury is still out.
Blurred Lines - Lauren Layne
I needed something light and fun after Some Kind of Perfect (not that it was dark but I was saying goodbye to friends *more sobbing*) and this is totally doing the trick. There is so much laugh out loud dialogue and I'm loving it.
