THE SUNDAY POST is a weekly wrap-up feature hosted by Kimba at the CAFFEINATED BOOK REVIEWER.

I tell you what my first ARC is after my ARC free summer.
I tell you what literary teachers I would have liked in my school days.
It was a light week because I went back to work on Monday and the first couple of weeks back I have to go in every day except Friday. After that I will go back to going into the office only on Mondays and then work from home the rest of the week. This also means I wasn't great with blog commenting either, but I will be visiting a lot of blogs on Monday's holiday.

There is a blog tour stop over on my Children's blog with a $25 gift card GIVEAWAY if you are interested.

I saved enough money for a DSLR camera, but then my old Kindle Fire HD tablet died, so I decided to get a cheaper camera and a new Fire HD instead. I had decided on a Cannon Powershot SX410 IS, for $199, and went to Best Buy to purchase it yesterday because their site said they had one in the store, but they didn't. I had been super excited to get it, so I could start taking photos for the blog, and it was a huge let down. Boo hiss. I guess I will see if Amazon has it for a decent price.

I pulled the rest of my guitar gear out of the back storage room and I set a goal for starting to perform again. Last week there was an event in our city called Porchfest where bands play on people's porches all over the West Side neighborhood, and I would like to get some type of ensemble together to play next year. Will I make it? Who knows, but right now I am pretty stoked about getting back in the swing of things after almost 25 years. I am even excited to begin practicing again! The Manchild doesn't seem to be fully on board with the idea. He has been dragging his feet about helping me fix the jack on my Yairi, and I had asked him a million billion times to get my gear out before I finally did it myself. He keeps calling all of this my "thing" and was complaining about all of my "guitar stuff" in the living room. I am wondering if I need to have a sitdown with him. It would be nice to have his support.

This is not the ARC I requested from the publisher, so I don't know if it is an unsolicited ARC and they are still going to send me the one I requested, or they sent me this instead of the one I requested, which doesn't pub until late November. However, this is on my tbr, so it is still nice to have.

I have only read Hoffman's Middle Grade book NIGHTBIRD, but I loved it and wanted to read more of her works. I did start PRACTICAL MAGIC once, but had to take it back to the library before I got too far. I have two of her other books in my Kindle library. I will probably get to them next year. This book is still on special for $2.51 at the time of my posting.

I had the first book, THE DARKEST MINDS, on my Kindle and I did have an ARC of this one from a giveaway, but I like ebooks better, so I bought it. It is still on sale for $2.99 right now and the first book is only 99 cents.

This is the third book in The Darkest Minds trilogy. It is also $2.99 at this moment.
