The Sunday Post #7



Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted  @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. See rules here: Sunday Post Meme


Today is the last day of  COYER's first Summer Reading List Read-a-thon and I'm hoping to get one more book finished!

I'm a big Book Riot fan, and they have recently released a new Podcast called Annotated that is really cool!  The first episode is about 1984 by George Orwell, not so much a discussion of the book itself, but the history behind it.  There were some surprising things I didn't know, and I'm really looking forward to seeing what other topics Jeff and the gang at Book Riot tackle in the next episodes.  I actually enjoy all of their podcasts, they currently have 6 different ones now that get new episodes, 7 if you join their premium Insiders group. Be careful if you do start listening though, because your TBR list will explode!

I kept seeing people in hammocks, relaxing and reading, so I decided to get one!  Here's where you'll find me the rest of the summer!





I talked about my top ten reads of the year so far, and have a giveaway for The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas in Top Ten Tuesday.

I reviewed One Love by Amanda Shofner, my first read for the COYER Summer Reading List Read-a-thon #1.

I put up 3 new books from the subscription boxes I've joined to vote on in the My TBR List Meme for July, help me out, please vote!

I also shared my June Read - July TBR #Bookstagram posts.  If you look back at my June TBR, you might notice that none of those books appear on June's Read post! lol! Best laid plans and all that.  We'll see what happens for July!  I just like making collages of book covers, to be honest! ;)



I'll be reviewing The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict, which I read as part of  the latest Big Library Read.

On Saturday I'll be posting July's winner of the My TBR List Meme vote.



After last week's little spree, I managed to only add one library book to my TBR this week!





In the meantime I'll be reading in my hammock, with a glass of limeade! ;)

  10. I have no balance so I imagine I'd fall out of the hammock and sprawl ungracefully onto the grass like a dead hippo!

    1. It does require surprisingly more effort than I had imagined to get into and out of it! I'm getting better though, with practice!
