Sunday Post: 3/16/14


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 on your blog, showcase books and things received and share news about what's coming up for the next week ahead.

Wow! This has been a busy week. Spring break has made me a very productive reader. I read 7 books in total in the course of a week which is crazy. I haven't done that in forever. It's back to school tomorrow. I'm reading Splintered next. It's going to be awesome to be in Wonderland for a chance. I tried to read the original story a long time ago but it didn't take. Hopefully this retelling will make me fall for the original story once again. Thanks for the recommendation everyone. I love the What's Next meme I started to participate in.

Last Week on the Blog:



Last week I discussed what motivations Maleficent may have had to put Aurora under a curse in the upcoming movie Maleficent. I reviewed The Program and Til Death which I both loved reading. A blog tour for Clever Girl stopped here. I reviewed the picture book - Princess Pigsty. I participated in the meme What's Next? and was recommended Splintered to read next. I reread and reviewed Two Truth and a Lie. Finally, I reviewed Fearscape which although I really enjoyed scared the hell out of me.

Around the Blogosphere (a.k.a. my to-read list is now larger):

18077961   20527879

Some books I added to my to-read list that I can't wait to get my hands on: Liv, Forever by Amy Talkington and They All Fall Down by Roxanne St. Claire.

Posts/articles/videos I enjoyed:



Plans for Next Week:

I'll be reading less this week but I still have plans to read some great books. Right now I'm reading Wicked Plants and then I'll be moving on to Splintered.


I also plan to read Black Crow, White Lie and if I can Witch Finder. I stopped reading A Discovery of Witches a while ago so I want to read a few chapters a day until I finish it. It's really long so I have to read it that way to stay sane. I have two books that I've read but not yet reviewed so I'll get on that quick before I lose what I want to say about each of them.

    1. It's more than I've read in a week in forever. It's going to be sad not reading as much but it was a very relaxing week that I needed. I hope Splintered is as great as I think it will be!

    1. I know and the title reminds me of another book that I happened to love by Robert Cormier.
