The Sunday Post #78 (7.12.15)

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.  
 
 
This is a busy weekend with events on both days for me...usually I do nothing over the weekends, except read and catch up on the blog. But, Saturday I had my niece's 2nd birthday party up in Massachusetts (2.5 hours each way) and then today I'm off to Sparta, NJ for a luncheon for author Jenny Milchman to celebrate the release of her new book, As Night Falls. This is about an hour from me...all this driving means lots of audio book time, but it also means I'm not getting much done on my blog this weekend...oh well! 

Have a great week everyone!!!

  3. I'm sure you'll enjoy the luncheon and don't stress too much about the blog time. People keep reminding me the 'real life' stuff needs to take precedence!

  4. Will be interested to see your review for The Far End of Happy. Just finished Summer Secrets, went right out and bought it and read it. Great book. Car time can be a nuisance but it does help the audio along!
