Sunday Post | 19th Edition

November 17, 2013 Sunday Post 13

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.

I’m so excited – I finally caught up and stayed caught up!! This week I’ve been able to respond to all comments within the same day and actually visit a bunch of blogs! So yeah, I’m super excited. COYER is also going really well, everyone is blowing me away with how quickly they are reading and reviewing! I still need to catch up on reviews from this week, so I’ll be doing that this afternoon. Thanks to Cerian @ Rookie Romance for hosting last week’s mini-challenge – I loved reading everyone’s book spine poetry. This week Laura @ Music Plus Books is hosting the next mini challenge for COYER – The Acrostic Poem Challenge. So COYER Participants be sure to head over there this week for a chance to win. And don’t forget, participating in challenges earns you extra entries in the COYER grand prize!

Ok… so let’s talk about NaNoWriMo. I got a bit ambitious this month and decided to shoot for the stars. Looks like I might be making the moon… or ozone layer instead LOL. I’m just behind. I don’t have time for everything I’d like to do and so far I’m at 13,273 words, which isn’t horrible – but it’s also a good 8 days behind where I should be right now. I’m not giving up, but I don’t think 50K is going to happen. I’m going to keep trying to find time to write every day and at the very least I’ll have a great start on my writing!

That’s it for me – how was your week?

Blogosphere Fun

This week The Book Nympho’s What The Feck (WTF) post was about Crying Over Books and featured a twitter conversation I found pretty funny.

This week’s Coffee Shop Talks was about Memes. As someone who likes them, but is hesitant about getting involved in too many, I found this discussion post interesting.

Nose Graze had a fun discussion post about losing someone you know as a subscriber.

Reanna @ Phantasmic Reads and Rachel @ Fiktshun are hosting a year-long reading challenge next year and sign-ups are now open. Check out the 2014 Review Pile Reading Challenge and set yourself up to get through that review list next year.

Carmal @ Rabid Reads had a feature this week asking “Do You Blindly Read A New Series By A Favorite Author?” and had some very interesting thoughts on the subject.

Between the Lines had an interesting post about Handling Book Review Requests – particularly the ones where your answer is no.

Rachel @ Parajunkee is asking us to Spill Our Guts! Go take her survey about book blogging and enter to win a $20 gift card! I look forward to seeing the results.

New Additions to My Shelf

I am so incredibly impressed with myself. Can you believe that this is all I picked up this week?

    Good luck with NaNoWriMo! You’re right; even if you don’t make 50K, you’ll still be farther ahead than if you hadn’t done anything, so it’s all good.

    Thanks for the links to the blog posts — some good ones there I had missed.

    As for COYER, I’m glad it’s going so well! I wish I were doing better with it, though. Between a reading slump and several freelance deadlines, I’m not getting as many books read as I’d hoped. Let alone reviewed! Oh, well, maybe I can catch up a little this week.

    Anyway, have a terrific week!

    I must admit that I was all excited about doing NaNoWriMo early in the month and now there are just other things that I would rather do. Maybe things will turn around?

    Good luck with your NaNo writing; just writing each day is an achievement!

    I had a light book week too, nothing wrong with that. 😀

    I missed a few of those articles, I’ll go check them out, thanks.

      You bet Trish! Sorry I took so long to respond, just been really overwhelmed lately. I agree – light book haul weeks are such a relief sometimes!

      Thanks Kimba. Clearly the getting caught up was short lived, but hopefully next semester will give me a break. The writing is coming along, even though NaNo is over, so maybe I’ll have a very rough draft by the end of the year?
