The Sunday Post #19 (4.13.14)

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.  


Last week flew by. I was up at my dad's and it was great spending time with him. He's moving around quite well with his broken leg and shoulder. Now I'm home and I have 2 shadows who won't leave my side - my dogs were quite happy to have me back!!!

It will be a busy week with work, but I'm hoping to make time for reading as well. At least the weather will be nice, so hopefully the dogs and I will get some good walks in, too!

Have a great week everyone!!!
