The Sunday Post #36 (8.17.14)

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


This was a relatively quiet week workwise, and I was able to sneak in quite a lot of reading time. That's the beauty of my job - I work part-time, mostly from home, and make my own hours, depending on what's going on. This week I was able to take 2 full-days and make them reading days to catch up on some books that I needed to get in for some upcoming book tours...it was so nice to be able to do that, especially after the craziness of the last few weeks.

Have a great week everyone!!!

  3. A reading day sounds nice. Hope you made some progress! I'm curious to see what you think of the Janet Evanovich. I read her early books but quit I think after 8 so I want to hear how the series has been. Though all your books coming up this week look interesting. Have a great week!

    1. It was delightful!!! I've been enjoying the Janet Evanovich books - I like listening to them. They're silly, quick books that I can listen to while cleaning, doing blog work, etc. They have gotten a little repetitive, but I'm determined to stick it through to the end to find out who Stephanie ends up with - Ranger or Morelli!

  9. Sounds like you had a great week. I read No Limits but haven't read Hard Knocks yet. The rest that you list aren't the sort of books I usually read but I have been reading lots from my review stack. You can see my week here. Happy reading!
