The Sunday Post #35 (8.10.14)

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


Well - I'm posting this a day late because I was away this weekend celebrating my youngest niece's baptism. It was a quick trip to my sister's but I love when my family gets together. Being the oldest of seven siblings, it's hard for all of us to get together, and while we were missing two of my brothers, it was still a great time. Of course, all that family time meant no reading, but that's a trade-off I was more than willing to make!

Have a great week everyone!!!

  2. The Good Girl sounds really suspenseful. I am also curious about Butternut Summer and that whole series.

    I'm glad you had a nice time with your family and hope you have a great week!

  8. Wow! 7 is impressive. My dad is one of 6 so family gatherings are always massive but always fun. The Poppy Factory sounds great! I loved The Forgotten Seamstress and am wanting to read this one as well.
