The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on my blog and share news about what’s coming up in the week ahead. This past week on FYFA (and in my life): Merry Christmas! And for those of you who don’t celebrate Christmas, I hope you have a wonderful holiday season. Most of this week was spent last-minute Christmas shopping and other Christmas preparation. Did you know that in order for people to receive gifts from you, you have to first purchase them? And then wrap them? Apparently, I thought all that was going to happen by itself this year, because I still had a whole lot of stuff to do this week with not a lot of time to do it. I believe I got it all done, and Christmas… Read more »
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on my blog and share news about what’s coming up in the week ahead. This past week on FYFA (and in my life): As much as I wish all of the things in my April 1st Sunday Post were true, alas, they were not. Sorry if I had you excited about my pretend book deal there for a minute. I hope someday I can actually make that announcement (maybe minus the part about killing off my main character in my MG—I’m guessing that wouldn’t go over well). If you didn’t read yesterday’s April Fools’ Sunday Post, go check it out. I’m hoping some of my “creative” pre-order deals and giveaways will give you a laugh! I didn’t want to let you guys miss… Read more »
I was hoping to get my review up today to go along with this promo, but (due to a bit of drama in my household), I couldn’t finish the book in time. I’m at about 100 pages, though, and so far I’m really enjoying it. It’s got a good mystery going—I’ve figured out that there’s something paranormal going on, but I haven’t been able to guess exactly what. I’m assuming there are werewolves involved, but also something else. There’s a really weird dynamic in the town, and I’m kind of loving that. I plan to finish the book this weekend and then I’ll get my review up early next week! Haven by Mary Lindsey presented by Entangled Teen! Grab your copy today! “We all hold a beast inside. The only difference is what form it takes when freed.” Rain Ryland has never belonged anywhere, He’s use to people judging him for… Read more »
Hey, everybody! You may have noticed that I’ve been a little scarce lately. Things have been incredibly crazy around here. So, I’m headed off on vacation and I’ve decided to just go ahead and take the time off from blogging. I’ll be back on August 14th. Since I won’t be posting my normal Sunday Posts, keep an eye on my Twitter feed for blogoversaries and birthdays, giveaways and preorder deals; I’ll tweet them when I can!
This is the third book in the Heart of the City Series, but each book can be read as complete standalones. All of the books follow a young Aussie woman as she heads off to a major city in another country … and finds love there. What Fed My Addiction: London! These books will give you a sense of wanderlust as you head off to a foreign locale. I’ve never been to London, but this book introduced me to many local spots that I’d love to see someday. I got a good sense of the city because Kate was so excited to be there—even though she did spend a lot of time sequestered at her grandmother’s house at first. Kate finding her voice. Even though Kate’s in the city of her dreams and has the perfect opportunity to flourish as a travel and fashion blogger, just like she’s always wanted, something… Read more »
This is one of those fantasies that has a ton going for it – an interesting magical system, flawed characters who don’t always do the right thing (or even always know what the right thing is), secondary characters who you sometimes love and sometimes make you crazy, realistic inner turmoil … the list goes on. I’m not going to go into detail about the plot (you’re all perfectly capable of reading the blurb). Instead, I’ll jump right into my review. What Fed My Addiction: Flawed characters. This is one of those books where the main characters make mistakes – sometimes big ones – but you can still relate to them because you understand where they’re coming from. For instance, right from the start, you can see that Vhalla is trying to deny who she is based on prejudices that were formed out of ignorance. And I have to admit that it took her… Read more »
I hope that you all have a wonderful time celebrating the holidays with your families!
Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is: Top Ten Finished Series I’ve YET to Finish! I have a problem. A real, actual bookish problem that haunts me. I can’t bring myself to finish series – even the ones I love. I’ve written about being a series failure in the past, you may remember. Out of the six series I mentioned in that post, seven months ago, I’ve only caught up on TWO of them. And these are some of my favorite series! What is wrong with me? Am I just scared to see it all end? (Probably.) Do I fear that I’ve forgotten too much about the previous books in the series? (Yes.) Am I just ridiculously good at procrastinating at reading books that haven’t been specifically scheduled? (Uh huh.) Whatever the reason, I have plenty of series to list here! The Unwind Dystology: I’m cringing right now because I swore (seven months ago) that I was going… Read more »
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on my blog and share news about what’s coming up in the week ahead. Last week on FYFA (and in my life): Well, I switched hosting companies this week (you can read more about it HERE). You may notice a few things off – the biggest thing I’ve noticed so far is that my reply feature doesn’t seem to be working properly, so I’m mostly holding off on replying to comments this week (until Ashley, my new hosting provider gets back from her Hawaiian vacation!). Sorry for the quirks, but I know we’ll get them worked out soon. If you notice anything, feel free to let me know in the comments (thanks, Silvara, for doing just that!). Not much other news around… Read more »
Just so you all know, I’ve switched over to hosting by the lovely and amazingly talented Ashley over at Nose Graze. I was already using a lot of her products (UBB and the Tweak Me Theme – if you don’t know about these, you should definitely check them out!), and I love them all, so when I was having problems with reliability with my hosting company, my husband and I decided to look into her services. Now, I have to say that I am QUITE lucky to have a techie for a husband (how do the rest of you do it?), but he’s very happy to pass off most of the technical duties to Ashley and let her take care of it all so I can stop bugging him. 🙂 Ashley has already made the process nearly seamless, but there MAY be some minor glitches over the next few days as we… Read more »
