THE SUNDAY POST is a weekly feature hosted by Kimba at The Caffinated Book Reviewer. It is a chance to recap the previous week, share news, showcase books and/or bookish things we have received, and tell about what is coming up on our blog in the next week. You can view the rules, HERE.
I am listening to the BROWN GIRL DREAMING audio book and I LOVE IT! My first audio book! I had some hand mending to do, so I started the book and couldn't stop listening. After I finished sewing, I did my nails and cut coupons. I ended up listening to 75% of the story!
I got a few things in the mail and bought some ebooks (most of them were free). I didn't request or download anything from Netgalley or Edelweiss because I am still making my way throught several cookbooks I downloaded last week. I did however get the wonderful hardcover book I traded for...
ORLEANS was a standalone Dystopian my sister picked out for me from the library about three years ago, I think, and it was brilliant! No romance and a true friendship between a guy and a girl, with zero sexual tension, and no unrequited love. Priceless! The MC is of color as well as the author. This is one of those books I would give six stars to if I could. I have not reviewed it on the blog yet because, as with so many books I read before blogging, it slips my mind. The paperbacks are dirt cheap at Book Outlet right now, so I might buy a couple and have a little giveaway with a review soon. I am going to contact the author to see if she has some bookmarks she can throw in.
I posted a TELL ME TUESDAY
And I finished reading The Sin Eater's Daughter. It started out around a four, went down to three stars, then down to 2.5 stars, but after an exciting ending went back up to three on Goodreads. All in all a disappointment. It ended in a cliffhanger of sorts, so I will be reading at least the beginning of the next book. Ha ha! I bought it for a special $2.99 ebook pre-order price. If I had paid full price, I would have been sad.
I have a stop on THE INFINITE tour on the 17th. I will have an interview with Lori M. Lee. I asked her questions from the Vanity Fair version of the famous Proust Questionnaire. You can see David Bowies's Vanity Fair interview, HERE. This is going to be my "thing" from now on for both author and character interviews. There is a nice giveaway included, so I hope you will stop by. I will be linking the interview to my review on the same day.
I am going to start posting my favorite gif I have seen in my travels of the blogosphere every Sunday. At the end of the year I am going to do a post of my top ten gifs chosen from these weekly winners. Of course the first one would be from the ever so "gif-ted" Cait at PAPER FURY.
Thanks for the giggle, Cait!
Have a wonderful week!
