Sunday Post #1


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted  @ 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. See rules here: Sunday Post Meme.  This is my first time doing this, but since I didn't get any books this week, but I do have some future things I want to talk about, I thought this would be the way to go instead of Stacking the Shelves that I normally do.  So here goes!!

Last Week on My Blog:

  • Crewel by Gennifer Albin (review)

This Week on My Blog:

This one is harder for me than others, because I don't always plan ahead of time what I'm going to do.  Other than books that were read and reviewed way early, or if I've signed up for hops or something, it just all depends on when I finish what I'm reading, and how busy my week is.  But here are my plans as best as I can predict:

  • Darkness Falls by Cate Tiernan (review)
  • Teaser Tuesday
  • Last Night at the Viper Room:  River Phoenix and the Hollywood He Left Behind by Gavin Edwards (review)
  • Booking Through Thursday
  • Feature and Follow Friday or The Friday 56
  • Stacking the Shelves

Future Plans on My Blog:

  • My birthday is October 22nd, and so I am going to do a giveaway to celebrate, as well as tying it into the Fierce Reads  event I'll get to attend in November.  So look out for that giveaway starting on the 22nd.
  • November is coming up, and I plan to participate (sort of) in National Novel Writing Month.  I can't officially join the site this time, as I am not going to start a new novel.  My plan instead is to work on maybe finishing a novel I started several years ago through NaNoWriMo.  So, with planning to do a lot of writing, that will cut in a bit to my reading.  And so, I have the plan below for this:
  • I am planning to host a challenge in November.  I think I will name it similar to my September is for Sequels Challenge, and call it November is for Novellas.  There are so many 1.5 and 2.5 stories these days, like The Prince by Kiera Cass, that is part of The Selection series.  So I plan to buy or read as many of these as I need to throughout November.  The quick reads should go well with my writing that I am planning for NaNoWriMo.  I will open it up to others like I did the Sequels Challenge, and probably even hold a giveaway.  

So, what are your plans for the upcoming week?  How did you do last week with your goals and plans?

  2. Following you now on bloglovin, thanks for following me earlier.
    I love the idea of a novella's challenge, especially the series tie in ones. I just got the Divergent ones this week and am looking forward to them.

  4. I have the same problem with posting what's going to happen in the upcoming week. I have tour stops planned, but a lot of the rest of it I figure out as I go along.

  5. I'm the same way, I can recap my blog but planning the week ahead is hard because I never know how much I'm going to get done. Oh well... keeps it interesting. :) Good luck w/ the writing and the Nov challenge, hope they go well.

  6. For this week that is a super busy week for me since I work everyday of the week, I'm gonna try and read as much as I can (I'll end up losing sleep as usual) so I can schedule as many posts for when I go on vacation from the 21st on!

    1. I wish I could stay up and read, I hate that I have to be at work at my new job at 7 am. Hope you have a great vacation!
