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 week was a little less busy. Although I still had something going almost every night, I still was able to spend time at home and get some reviews and other blogging done, as well as some reading.
Last week on the blog:
- Reviews: Calendar Girl Vol. 2 by Audrey Carlan, Lead (Stage Dive #3) by Kylie Scott (audiobook), The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich, His Every Need (The Beauty and the Brit #1) by Terri L. Austin, Redeeming Trust by Michelle Sodaro, and Moonlight on Nightingale Way (On Dublin Street #6) by Samantha Young
- Cover Reveals: Confessions of an Undercover Girlfriend by Kay Marie, and Match Fit by Amelie S. Duncan
I still got my 3 days of walking in, and I was doing really well, got 4 miles in on Monday, but then Wednesday night I only got 2 because I had to go visit my stepdad in the hospital after work that day because he'd had shoulder surgery. Yesterday though I still got 3 miles. I got the shirt I made to wear when I go to NOLA StoryCon in the mail as well. It has to do with the book Before Jamaica Lane by Samantha Young. And when I posted this picture in the fan group for her on Facebook, she even commented that she liked it!! Now I can't wait to wear it when I meet her!
I know this is really nerdy too, but I also finally got my very first pair of Toms shoes. I've always thought they were cute, but with not ever finding them available in stores that I could try them on, I've skipped over ordering shoes online. But then, after my love and obsessions with the After series, it was one of my rewards for meeting exercise goals, and I finally purchased them, and they came in the mail this week.
I also found out that I was chosen to be a volunteer at Apollycon 2017 in Orlando! I wanted to go, but didn't know if I could afford to pay, plus most of the tickets that I would have wanted have sold out I think. But now, I am going to get to meet Anna Todd, plus my new favorite, Kylie Scott! I've got two sorority sisters who both offered that I could stay with them while I was there, so really I'll just have to find a good price on a plane ticket!

And, I'm going to sign up once again to do the Blog Ahead Challenge sponsored by herding cats and burning soup, to get ready for NaNoWriMo again this year. While I thought I knew for sure what story I was going to work on this year, reading Smut made me start thinking about trying something else. But anyway, the goal for this challenge is to get 30 more posts scheduled ahead of time, for November on, than what you start the month of October with. So it may not be every day in November scheduled, but it will be a lot of it, as well as moving on into December. I'm counting this post as my sign up post for the challenge! You can sign up at the link above if you want to join in.
Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews. It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected. Once again, my ebook haul was huge this week. But my physical book haul was much smaller for a change.
The book on top I got at the Dollar Tree. The bottom two books I got at one of my school district librarian meetings for free! Sweet I've read and loved, and Dead of Winter is going to be one of my next reads as I fall in love with the Arcana series.
I got this as a book for trade through a group on Facebook. So excited to read it!
Got this one from being part of a tour with the Irish Banana blog. I had another one from Edelweiss, but I can't find the sheet of paper I wrote it on, so I'll have to share it later.
Free or cheap ebooks:
Okay, here we go.
Once again, way too many. The last four down at the bottom were all from Barnes and Noble for my Nook. The others were all Amazon Kindle. One of them, Smut, I started reading and finished this week. There are one or two of the above that I did pay for after winning a $5 gift card.
Okay, that is the long list of what I added to both my physical and virtual shelves this week. What new books did you get this week!
