The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Basically it’s a chance to talk about the books you bought, borrowed, blogged about, and read for the week and what’s coming in the week ahead – and then share them with a much wider blogging community. Check out the details here.
Last week was a seriously rough week! School has been really amping it up and this week it exploded. I barely kept up with my posts and comments – sorry if you stopped by and I responded a couple days later. Because of a paper that I had due on Tuesday I hadn’t managed to get my blog fully ahead like I like to, so I was scrambling the last few days to get my scheduled posts up. So I spent all day yesterday (Saturday) getting my blog where I want it for the week. Sunday is going to be a blog-free day, though. I just have too much school work to do, so I’ll get back to you and visit your Sunday Posts on Monday (if I get everything done, I’ll stop by tonight).
It was a busy one on the blog last week, despite my being crazy busy at school. The highlight was a surprise nomination for the Shine on Award. I didn’t know much about it, but it’s pretty cool to get a shout-out from a fellow blogger in any form. So that made my week 🙂 Next week is going to be crazy busy as we launch one of my favorite months – October! Also known as Let’s Celebrate Halloween month! I’ll be participating in some great Halloween events (see schedule below) and doing a few design updates in honor of the holiday that celebrates everything I love to read about all year long!
As always, thanks for stopping by and sharing your weeks with me!

Fun Questions | Do you get blogger ADD?
Since I was all over the place this week, I didn’t do a very good job marking posts that I really wanted to share with you. So these are just the ones I remember off the top of my head:
Nosegraze conducted a survey a while back and the results are very interesting. Check out Blogger Survey Results – Part 1.
How much should you be trying to review each week? Parajunkee posted a great discussion post on this topic (and made me feel a lot better!!). Check out #BB101 – I can’t review this Much!
A continuing favorite feature of mine is For Book’s Sake at The Demon Librarian. This week’s topic: Mary Sue and TSTL Heroines!
I used to be mystified about how people had all these related posts suggestions. If you’re wondering too check out Caffeinated Book Reviewer’s post How the Heck Did You Do That?!? and the mystery will be solved.
Xpresso Book Tours is a favorite touring group out there for YA and NA books, but now they’re moving into darker territory with their launch of Xpresso After Dark! I’m super excited as this will feature my go-to genres 🙂
New Additions to My Shelf
I guess one benefit of being super crazy busy is I didn’t do near as much shopping this week as I usually do. But I still picked up a decent number of books that I can’t wait to read! I also realized last week that this feature was crashing my post (that’s when you know you bought to many books!!) so this week, I’m just listing them instead off adding their images. But if you click on the titles – it will take you to Amazon!
