Sunday Post 13th January 2013

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It's a chance to share news~ to recap the past week on the blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. 


I've been so exhausted this week- I'm like a zombie and I haven't written a single blog post at all. I sit down to try and write a book review, and all my brain can manage is "book... good". 
Hopefully things will pick up again and I'll get my energy back!

In terms of books though I've had a good week. My attempt to not buy any new books though has failed catastrophically!

Bought:




  • Drowning Instinct by Ilsa J. Bick. I read this on audiobook last year and I think it's hands- down one of the best books of 2012. Now it's out in paperback for the first time and I pre-ordered it. Yay!
  • Possess by Gretchen McNeil. This one looks creepy and thrilling. I completely blame Claire at Project TBR for her amazing review of this book that prompted me to buy it. 
  • Timekeeper by Alexandra Monir. Book 2 in the Timeless series. Looking forward to this one.
(I bought a bunch of other books as well- but these are all the ones I will admit to!)

Audiobook:

  • The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta. I've heard great things about this book- high expectations.










From the library:




  • Reached by Ally Condie. Book 3 in the Reached trilogy.
  • Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter.
  • Dust and Decay by Jonathan Maberry. Book 2 in the Rot and Ruin series. I have no idea when I'm going to find time to read this- but I want to!
  • Shift by Em Bailey.

For review:

  • Dare You To by Katie McGarry. This is the sequel/ companion novel to Pushing The Limits. There is no cover at the moment, but this is the US cover for the book. It is due to be published in May/ June 2013. Thanks to Mira publishers and Netgalley.

  14. You had a seriously rockin book week! I am so jealous! A lot of these are on my TBR and have been for a minute now.
    I try so hard to be good and not go book crazy and fail. I try not to feel so bad. I have blown money on more wasteful things in the past..lolz..Books are good. They do good things for me.
    I heard Angelfall is a really good book. I heard book 2 is coming out soon.
    I am a new follower to your blog. I love the design.
