The Sunday Post #72 (5.17.15)

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'm also going to link this up with Sheila's It's Monday post over at Book Journey. 

Only one week of work left until BEA!!! I am so excited, but at the same time, a but overwhelmed at all that I still need to do. I still need to finalize my schedule and get some odds and ends for my trip. But I am really looking forward to it. I only have four days of work, though I foresee they will be long, busy days.

Today, I'm heading to Collegeville, PA to an author event with one of my sisters. It's being billed as a Women's Fiction Book Club Event and six authors will be there - some of which I have read and some I have not. I'm looking forward to it and will be sure to write a post about it soon!
 
Have a great week everyone!!!
