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 guidelines, HERE
My TELL ME TUESDAY was all about FINALLY getting approved for my eARC of PERSUASION on Edelweiss. You can read that, HERE.
I am doing research for a blog post I am planning and have been asking this question around the web...
* IS IT OKAY FOR A YA BOOK TO TAKE LIBERTIES IN PORTRAYING A MENTAL ILLNESS AS LONG AS THE STORY IS "GOOD" OR "FUN"? *
I would appreciate your input.
Again, I have no photos because the forward facing camera on the Kindle Fire is a pain, and I really need my son to help me, plus it really needs bright sunlight to take non-blurry pictures. Needless to say, timing the availability of those two things together is nearly IMPOSSIBLE. I have been asking different bloggers what they are using and any advice would be appreciated. I am on a single mom with a son in college budget, so I am not looking for anything extravagant.
Anyway, I received my QUIRK BOOKS prize pack from THE BOOK NUT and was so happy with its contents I twirled! She had a stack of books and the package each of the two winners won was a mystery, except for the QB tote they came in. My favorite thing was the HOLLOW CITY oversized paperback because it matches my Mrs. Peregrine's perfectly!
My BOOK OUTLET order arrived. I ordered on Mother's Day, so I received an extra 25% off. I ordered two paperback ORLEANS: one for a gift and one for a giveaway. I also bought a hardcover of RECKLESS, the first book in the author of the Inkheart trilogy's Mirror World series, and a funny picture book about bacteria and viruses for my son who is a Biochemistry major.
I will post pictures next week, I PROMISE!
Speaking of book mail, I posted my BOOKS FOR TRADE lists on GOODREADS. You can view my trade-fors and wishlist, HERE.
HAVE A PERFECT WEEK!
