(The Sunday Post is a meme sponsored by the awesome Kimba at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. 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.)
So I have been a little behind this week due to some personal things at home, so I apologize that I haven’t visited some of your blogs but I am hoping to catch up on that this week.
I am super excited that my Author Spotlight Feature has blown up. When I started blogging I loved getting review requests from authors then it got so overwhelming I hated turning people away. Some of the books I got offered I really didn’t think I would enjoy but I thought others might and that is how the Author Spotlight was born, I love helping authors weather well known or not and I thought this would be such a cool idea to spotlight an author and this year I have added to it. This week I had a boom and I’m so excited about it almost 20 emails requesting a spotlight and I plan to respond to all to get them scheduled. (if you are reading this and you sent me on I promise to get to you soon).
Otherwise I attempted my first original post with a rant about Facebook, Thank you all who visited and comment, I was so nervous. I will be doing it again (just need to come up with something) it was a total boost to my confidence and I was rather proud of it and myself. Yay!!!

What I read, currently reading and going to read.
I finished (Don’t you) forget about me.
If it wasn’t for the last 40% I would have bailed on it but the end totally made me like the book. It was a complete turnaround.
I am now reading After the End and I hope to be finished soon I am actually liking it so far, it’s different
I am hoping to get a least 2 more in before COYER is over but I don’t think I will so my next read will be The Luck Uglies (I think)
I might go off my original list from my goal post and read one of the new ones I got last week.
Books I received, downloaded and added:
I was a VERY good girl and didn’t get anything new….I am VERY sad about it but I just have been avoiding adding anything new at least this week 😉
What else is going on?
It’s been a very stressful week (technically two weeks) personally. This week is the reason why I named my blog Because reading is better than real life because at the moment it is. I can’t really get into to much detail but we are in for a bit of a change and I am hopeful it’s for the better. I’m not sure what is going to happen so if I disappear for a while remember this post and know I will be back. Change can be scary, I just didn’t realize as a adult how scary it can be. I have faith it will all work out but it’s just a matter of taking each day and hoping for the best, making due with what we have and remembering it can always be worse. Don’t want to be a Debbie downer, I am usually a very happy positive person so I know it will be ok and maybe soon I will have some exciting news about an awesome change that was for the better 🙂
BTW: If you are a part of COYER don’t forget to join us today at 4 for the Twitter Party.
Now I am off to read because I really need to get out of this reality for a bit 🙂
So tell me what have you been reading and up to this week?
Hope you all have a fantastic week!!!
