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.

Happy to be back!

For all the moms, grammas, aunties, godmothers, and mother figures who dispense unconditional love.


I have been getting a lot of reading done due to tablet and laptop problems, and have no current ARCs to read or review until next month! I have also made a big dent in my "oops" tbr of ARCs that sat on Edelweiss and Netgalley until after their pub dates. I have zero of these titles on EW, and I think only four on NetG left to read. My Netgalley percentage is 90% at this moment. Ha! I am not expecting that to last long. 

I also received a Top Reviewer badge from Netgalley because four of my feedback reviews were featured by the publishers.

I am winding down to more of a normal reading schedule now, so I will be visting to comment on more blogs, and getting some long overdue book reviews posted here, too.

You might also notice, if you haven't been here in a while, that I have joined the popular minimalist blog design fashion.


I have been posting my feature TELL ME TUESDAY every week, dispite being in my reading cocoon. You can find last week's post, HERE.

I also wanted to give you the link to a blog post about the Baltimore riots from a fellow blogger, Elizabeth, who lives there. This girl has a brilliant and compassionate mind and I applaud her for it. You can read that blog post, HERE, at So Long... & Thanks For All The Fish.

One of Cait from Paper Fury's posts went viral! You can read 10 Things You Should RegularlyTell Writers, HERE.

And speaking of Paper Fury... I found my Gif of the Week on Cait's post, Weekly Fury.

Ha ha!


I also participated in the COMPULSION Audiobook Release Blitz and Giveaway. The giveaway contest is stellar and is still going on for quite a while.



  1. Enjoy your week, and I am curious about Compulsion....Had a wonderful Mother's Day.


  2. Happy Mothers Day, and congrats on the badge! Some nice links, thought provoking stuff... and the Mr. Rogers book looks interesting.

  3. Happy Mother's Day, lovely!!!! You've been kinda like a mother figure to me, too, you know, on Twitter and on here ;) Your enthusiasm and presence are so positively infectious :D And geez, 90% ?! That's amazing o_o I'm still stuck on 60%!! I'll have to do something about that number sooner or later...

  4. Belated happy Mother's Day, Linda! <3 And whoa... a 90% ratio? You're some kind of superhero, girl. ^_^ Congrats on the badge as well--that's fantastic!

  5. Happy Mother's Day La!! YAY for being a top reviewer!! And YAY for having loads of time to read!

  6. OMG THANKS FOR LINKING TO MY POST!! *flails like a wild giraffe* Isn't that gif just perfect though?! I LURVE IT. The internet never disappoints when it comes to weird gifs. XD YAY FOR YOUR NETGALLEY BADGE!! I kind of have really slacked off on Netgalley. I don't request much of anything because, despite having like a 98% ratio, I always get declined because I'm an Aussie. *heavy sigh*

  7. I'm up to 90% too!! I only have one book left to review (which I should have done...probably over a year ago now. I WILL do it though!) I'm hoping since I'm not going to allow myself more than one review copy at a time that I'll be able to act with restraint now. I'm actually surprised I'm interested in reviewing again since it's been about a year since I've done a book for review. (And I'm a bit surprised I've written any reviews - I've definitely started back up on those and I was SO burned out on them). I'm pretty impressed at how you keep up with all yours actually!

    And thanks so much again for the link and for the kind words :)


Thank-you for dropping by! I love to chat, so comments get a lot of love.
