I have been thinking about the idea of a weekly summary post of what has been going on in my blog world, and I really love Kimba’s idea behind her meme. So with that, my Sunday Post.
This past week on my blog, despite a long weekend away from home putting me behind, I still managed to review three novels, all parts of different series! I finally finished the Percy Jackson and the Olympian series by Rick Riordan (only with my husband poking me annoyingly until I did so we could talk about it together)! The Last Olympian was a great ending to a phenomenal middle grade fantasy series. You can expect to read reviews for his other two MG/YA series in the coming months! I also reviewed City of Fallen Ashes by Cassandra Clare, book 4 in The Mortal Instruments. This is actually my favorite book in the series so far! With City of Lost Souls coming out on Tuesday (eeeeek!), I am super excited and ready for more! And yesterday I posted my review for the long-awaited sequel to Veronica Roth’s Divergent. Oh yes, I absolutely LOVED Insurgent! There was so much more world-building and character development.
This week, expect some reviews on The Hunt, The Unbearable Book Club for Unsinkable Girls, Lola and the Boy Next Door, and an Author Request review of Narrative Loserdom. It looks to be an exciting week ahead!
As for Bookish News for the week, May 8th is a big day for releases (Including City of Lost Souls!!!), so head over to your local bookstore to check out all the new and pretty books on the shelves! Also, on Friday one of the local libraries in my city is hosting a book signing for Amy Plum, author of Die for Me and the May 8th release sequel Until I Die. I am hoping to finish Die for Me this week and attend this signing!
Now, onto my book haul! This part of my Sunday Post will also link up with Books, Biscuits, and Tea’s Showcase Sunday! So I can take part in both of these memes created by two bloggers that I love!
Hello and welcome to Showcase Sunday. Inspired by Pop Culture Junkie and the Story Siren, the aim of Showcase Sunday is to highlight our newest books or book related swag and to see what everyone else received for review, borrowed from libraries, bought in bookshops and downloaded onto eReaders each week.
(I wanted to take pictures but we lent our camera to a friend and I don’t have a fancy Iphone lol)
Every Sunday, Inspire Your Readers with a Picture of Some Beautiful, Dazzling, and Overall Fantastic Bookshelves.
Today’s Stacks look like this:
