The Sunday Post #10 (2.2.14)

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, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.   

I've decided to try a new weekly meme - a place where I can do both a weekly wrap up and share what books I get all in one post, so I'm going to give The Sunday Post a try, and also link up with Sheila's It's Monday Post over at Book Journey.  

It's hard to believe it's already February...it seems this year is already going by in the blink of an eye! While I've been getting a lot of reading done due to the cold weather - who wants to go outdoors in the freezing temps? - I still feel as if I need to take some time and get myself better organized for the year. I think I am going to spend some time doing that this week!

This coming weekend kicks off the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop and I am participating for the first time!!! Be sure to stop by and see what I have to giveaway as well as visit the other blogs that are participating.

  1. I really enjoyed The Invention of Wings. I want to listen to the audio book sometime. I listened to a sample on Audible and loved the narrator for Handful.

    January did go by kind of quickly but I don't mind because I am sick of winter already and ready for spring!
