The Sunday Post ~ Seventh Edition

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. The Sunday Post is a new meme where you can post about the new books you got this past week (books I was asked to bite), or recap what has been happening the past week on your blog (bites you may have missed), or a sneak peek for what is to come (what you can look forward to biting into), or even a final recap of your week in general (one last parting bite).

One Last Parting Bite:
Lots of great books, lots of great posts this past week, and lots of fantastic posts coming up! The number 1 book I am excited I got this week was Obsidian. I have heard amazing things about it and finally bought it. I am super excited to read it =D. My favorite post from this past week is probably the Pushing The Limits Read-A-Long post, because it is my first read-a-long I have participated in and I am so excited each week to read a segment of the book and answer the interesting questions. Lastly the post I am most excited for coming up this week would be the Young Adult Giveaway Hop. I love giving away prizes to followers and who wouldn't love the blog exposure of a blog hop? Its a win/win.
This past week has been extremely busy, but I love it. I'm pretty sure I say that every week, and I will be saying it again next week by the size of that list lol. I am happy to have busy weeks during the summer, though, because I know as soon as the school semesters begin my blog load will lessen significantly. I am going to try to have more posts this year than compared to last year. I have made some changes that will hopefully make that happen. I have cut off review requests. Not forever. I just set a deadline for August 1st if you want a review in a timely manner. After August 1st any review requests I get agree that they can wait for a review till April 2013 at the earliest. This gives me the promise of focus on school first and also the possibility to read all those amazing books I have bought each week and set on my shelves to gather dust while I only read review books. So hopefully I can get more posts out this year since its just sole-y for personal fun. I believe that is all I have this week. Check out the past posts this week, look forward to my future posts next week, and drool over those beautiful covers above =)


Thanks for checking out my Sunday Post! Hope you check in again next week =D
