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.

If you don't know by now the semester finals are over for me! That's why I've been blogging so many books lately. I'm so happy to be done! And I'm genuinely excited for my classes next year. Everything turned out great in the end. I'm so excited for Christmas this year even though there has been exactly  one day where there was a breeze. It doesn't feel very Christmasy but with the Christmas movies I've been watching it's been pretty fun. I'm excited to give the family members actual gifts this year that I hope they like. I hope you all had a fantastic week!

Last Week on the Blog:


Last week I reviewed: The Almost Truth by Eileen Cook, Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson, Sia by Josh Grayson, Crash by Lisa McMann, and The 14 Fibs of Gregory K. by Greg Pincus. Amy and Roger's Epic Detour was beyond my favorite out of the group while Sia didn't even get close... I don't usually not like books so it was too bad it wasn't as good as I hoped.

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


Some books I added to my to-read list that I can't wait to get my hands on: See Jane Run by Hannah Jayne and Second Star by Alyssa B. Sheinmel.

Plans for Next Week:

I plan on reading and reviewing: The Rule of Thirds by Chantel Guertin, Breathing Ghosts by Laekan Zea Kemp, and Where the Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller. 


These will be the last books I read for the year. I'm going to start with end of the year posts this week. I love doing the best of the best books posts and I can't wait to share what I have planned for next year. 2014 is going to be great!
