Sunday Post #4



The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer!
~ Inspired by the meme In My Mailbox.~
It's a chance to share news.
A post to recap the past week,
showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

It's been a pretty slow week for me. I finished reading one book and started reading a gazillion books at once. Am I the only one who does that? I couldn't help it. So much of good stuff out there! This is going to make the currently-reading section of today's post a little complicated! I hope everybody else had a great week and hope you have an awesome week ahead :-)


My week in review

Review: The List by Siobhan Vivian
Review: The Hunt (The Hunt #1) by Andrew Fukuda [Audio clip from the audio version added]

I reviewed The Hunt two weeks back but I have also included a link to an audio clip I was provided with that's from the audio book of The Hunt, read by Sean Runnette and from Macmillan Audio. Click HERE [direct link to audio clip] to listen to the clip!

Also, check out my interview with Lisa Burstein, author of Pretty Amy as a part of the Pretty Amy blog tour!

I am currently reading

ACK. This is all over the place. I would tell you but, um, it's just way too many books at the same time. I feel very weird listing all of them! I'm just going to add that I've started reading Torn by Amanda Hocking in addition to the books I was already in the middle of reading. I couldn't resist since I've been wanting to read it ever since I read Switched and... I love it so far! It is so amazing and I LOVE all the new characters. I like Duncan and oh my goodness, LOKI!! ❤ But *hangs head in shame* I need to stop reading a million things at once!

And here's my book haul for the week

From NetGalley

Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry * BEA Buzz Books: Excerpts from over 30 Top Fall 2012 Titles from Publishers Lunch

I'm so excited about Pushing the Limits!!! It sounds intense and unputdownable! Thank you so much, Harlequin! I also got an email from NetGalley shortly after saying I'd been auto-approved for Harlequin's NG titles which made my day! ☺

BEA Buzz Books is a read-now galley and I loved reading the excerpts from several Fall 2012 titles. They were quite a few YA excerpts and I loved reading all of them. I will be posting about the BEA Buzz Books whose release I'm most excited about soon!

Kindle Freebies

Glimpse (Zellie Wells #1) by Stacey Wallace Benefiel * Farsighted by Emlyn Chand

I don't know much about Glimpse but it caught my attention since its cover is similar to Intangible by J. Meyers and both the covers are pretty in totally different ways! The synopsis also sounded pretty awesome! When it was free in the Kindle Store, I snatched it up! Can't wait to read it!

Farsighted sounds totally unique as well and I can't wait to read it!



What are you currently reading? And what books did you get this week?

Happy reading! :)

  6. Reading a million things at once? It's totally a valid problem LOL! Sometimes it's hard not too because you might be currently reading a book when a really awesome one that you've been anticipating shows up at your door and how can you resist? x) But LOKI!! <3 You don't know how excited I am to see a heart next to his name on your post because ohmygoodness I love him so much! And everyone seems to be falling in love with Pushing the Limits (and this Noah guy!) so I'll be waiting for your review too :)

    Awesome Sunday post, Ajoop! <3

  7. LOL, just like you, Ajoop: I also need to stop reading things at once! x) It's awesome to hear that you get Pushing the Limits, and then you get it auto-approved from Harlequin! YAY for auto-approved! I'm very happy for you too! <3 I can't wait to hear what you think of Pushing the Limits, because so far I heard it's a gripping and intense read! Hopefully your review would be a glowing one too! x)

    I really need to read Switched! Everyone say that the second book of that series is even more amazing than the first! I really need to prove it! Can't wait to read your review of Glimpse, I hope it's amazing! :)

    Happy reading, and enjoy your books, Ajoop! Have a lovely week ahead! :)

  8. I used to read a gazillion books at once but I have given it up due to my tight reading schedule. Looks like you had a nice quiet week, that is a good thing, right?

  9. Pushing the Limits seems so good! Intense and unputdownable sounds like what I would use to describe it too, haha. I can't wait to read it. Hooray for being auto approved! I hope you enjoy your books. :)
