Sunday Post 7th April 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.



Better week for me this week!



Bought:

  • The Rising by Kelley Armstrong (Darkness Rising, book 3)
  • Sanctum by Sarah Fine. I have wanted the paperback of this for so long- but it was a bit pricey. It's only 99p on kindle this week though, so I have downloaded it. 
From the library:




  • Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake (Anna Dressed in Blood, book 2)
  • Sever by Lauren DeStephano (Chemical Garden, book 3)
  • Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead (Bloodlines, book 3)
  • Unremembered by Jessica Brody
For review:



  • The Pirate's Wish by Cassandra Rose Clarke (Assassin's Curse, book 2). This is due to be published in June 2013. Thanks to Strange Chemistry and Netgalley for the review copy. 
Won:



  • A signed copy of Heist Society by Ally Carter, plus an assortment of bookmarks and swag which I love. Thanks to Alexa at Alexa Loves Books for hosting this competition- I love my prize!


Best of the Bunch for March (monthly wrap-up post and meme)
I wished for Revel on Wishlist Wednesday 


Look out for more book reviews this week and another cover themes post- where I take book covers of a similar theme and set them to music matching the theme. 



This week I have really enjoyed reading...

Discussion on reviewing DNFs from Reading the Best of the Best
April UKYA releases from Fluttering Butterflies

  1. Libraries are great places to get new books that you don't want to buy. I get greedy and borrow way much than I can ever read.

  12. Oooh, I still need to read The Rising! I got the first two books, but haven't started reading them, because Kelley's YA endings always make me go crazy. But now that the third one's available, I probably should ASAP. :D

    Happy Reading!
