Sunday Post 30th December 2012

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. 

Woohooo! I love Christmas because people give me BOOKS! These are the amazing Christmas pressies I excitedly opened on Christmas day.

  • Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
  • The Torn Wing (Faerie Ring, book 2) by Kiki Hamilton
  • The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
  • Glimmer by Phoebe Kitanidis
  • Renegade by J. A Souders
  • Siege (As The World Dies, book 3) by Rhiannon Frater

I also downloaded a couple of new audiobooks (I love to listen to these while I do the washing up)

  • Rage Within (Dark Inside, book 2) by Jeyn Roberts
  • The Rise of the Nine (Lorien Legacies, book 3) by Pittacus Lore
  • Rebel Heart (Dustlands, book 2) by Moira Young

This week on Always Lost in Stories-
I wished for The Fault in Our Stars on Wishlist Wednesday
And I posted two book reviews-
I am also running a Best of 2012 Giveaway which ends tomorrow, so make sure you get your entry in!

Next week...
Tomorrow is the last day of the month which means it's time for Best of the Bunch again! This is a monthly blog hop which looks back over our reviews for the month and awards the best book the title of "Best of the Bunch". Go here to find out what it's all about, grab the stickers, and see previous posts. Then come back on the 31st to see which book won my award, and to leave the link to your own post. Please join in, as it's good fun and I love looking at which books everyone picked as their favourite. 

On Tuesday I have a new feature showcasing the new book releases for January, and which one especially I'm most excited to read. 

On Friday it is my 2 Year Blogoversary!! Yep- 2 years!! I'm having a big celebration including a new giveaway. 

Thanks for stopping by! What bookish goodies did you get for Christmas? Link me up!

  13. I have an audiobook of Rebel Heart as well...but I still need to read Blood Red Road. I also have Jellicoe Road and The Faerie Wing which I need to get around to as well...I'm so happy you enjoyed your Christmas and I'll have to come back and check out the Best of the Bunch.

  14. You received some amazing books! I have wanted to read Jellicoe Road for far too long. I really need to pick up a copy. The Darkest Minds caught my eye from the moment that I first read about it and recently read a great review that has me itching to make the time for it. Enjoy all of your books. Happy New Year.
