Sunday Post



The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It's a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews which was inspired by In my Mailbox by The Story Siren. It's objective is to showcase your newly acquired books. To participate click on the button above.
As many of you may have known I've been actively but selectively seeking out weekly features/meme to participate in. This is the first time I'm participating in the Sunday Post,  and I really like it's all-in-one concept. So rather than doing two different post when Stacking the Shelves is generally the same as one component of the Sunday Post I thought I'd join the two.

This week my library additions are quite slim. Despite me receiving quite a few boxes of books in my physical mailbox I'm yet to get it redelivered to my home address or pick it up so I'm not including it till I'm able to post pics of them, hopefully it'd have arrived by next week's post.

The Week Gone By


Since this is my first Sunday Post I thought I'd post about the week gone by plus a little bit. These are posts from the first day of this month (Feb 2013). Does anyone have any ideas how else I can put these posts up rather than a linked list? If you have any ideas of a more creative way to do this pls comment below. How do you do your Sunday post?

Awesome haul! I'm so jealous about School Spirits, I loved Rachel Hawkins' Hex Hall series.
I'll send you an email about the questions you posted on my STS =).

Ransom Reads said...

School Spirits is a novel I'm looking out for. I loved Hex Hall (although it did seem to fizzle out) and I can't wait to learn more about the Brannicks.

A lot of the other books you recieved don't look too bad either.

Thanks for stopping by our blog!

Happy reading and blogging this week :)

Dru said...

Nice selection.

Lola R said...

School spritis sounds really good, I am curious to hear what you think of it. I only have read Hex Hall by that author and plan on reading the rets of that series soon.

Kristin @ My ParaHangover said...

Since this is your first post, you did great!!! Next week you won't have so many links. Just leave links and maybe a little blurb about your post. Otherwise your Sunday Post will go on and on and on. Besides, your readers will have seen it all during the week anyways ;) Just copy what Kimba does!

And great haul!!! I'm on a NetGalley boycott at the moment :(

The Book Faerie said...

That's a great bunch of books! I never finished reading the Hex Hall series but I remember really loving the first one.. Anyway I hope you enjoy your new books and thanks for stopping by!

Jen Ryland/YA Romantics said...

I like the linked list. It's easy to skim and click on. I always have that issue on Sunday: how do I give the post some visual interest without making it endlessly long. But I like what you did!

And thanks for following! Followed you back :)

Ashley said...

Awesome new books! I really enjoyed The Goddess Inheritance, and I think School Spirits sounds awesome! I hope you like them. :)

Thanks for stopping by my Blog! I sent you an email with the HTML for the moving slideshow HTML. It takes up a lot less space & I don't miss any of my favorite blogs.

I'm hoping to start reading Rachel Hawkins's series this year. Hopefully I'll get to it before the spin-off comes out!

Ooo, awesome haul! I can't wait till School Spirits come out. Hex Hall series was great in my opinion. ^_^
I'll try to send an email about the questions you posted on my Sunday Post (assuming my internet connection gets along).
Thanks for stopping by my blog! :)

AH! I signed up for WW readathon and completely forgot. *headdesk* I guess I need to make a post and get started, better late than never. I really need to finish the Hex Hall books.

Hey, Angelica!

Thanks for dropping by and commenting on my STS post!

I'm loving your haul!! Terrific books!! I have "School Spirits" and "Surrender" on my TBR shelf at Goodreads. I've just added "Leopard Moon", "The Cypher", and "Reveal".

I regret to say that I won't be adding "Awakened" or "Mila"...they're available only in e-book format, and I don't like e-books. If they ever get published in printed editions, I'll DEFINIGELY add them to my TBR.

"The Broken Pieces" also looks interesting, so I'm adding that one, too!

Thanks for sharing these fabulous books!! Enjoy reading your stash!! :)

Kristin said...

I think I only got to the second book in the Hex Hall series. I need to see if my library has the new ones in. I'd love to get back into the story.

Halee said...

You got some great books! I haven't heard of a few of them, but I love all the covers. They're absolutely gorgeous. Enjoy your books!

Nice haul, Angelica! As for you post question - I list my posts and only link the title of what it is. I don't know if that helps.

I liked your bookish memories! You have a busy blog. Thanks for stopping by.

Great haul! Looking forward to reading School Spirits too! Can't wait to hear what you think. :-)

Katrina Marie said...

Great haul! Surrender was great. I don't read a lot of fantasy, but this one fit the bill.

Cyn said...

Ah so jealous! I can't wait for School Spirits! Great haul this week. The Wicked Valentine's Read-A-Thon looks fun! I'm so tempted to do it, but I don't know if I'll have time for it *sigh haha.

Thanks for stopping by Bookmunchies (:

Bea said...

I love the purple cover for Reveal!

As for how to design your sharing post, whatever works for you; take a look at other blogs, get ideas and then play with your posts. I've modified mine several times, tweaking it. I like what I've got at the moment but it could change.

The Twins Read said...

Thank you for stopping by our blog! Looks like you've had an exciting week. :> I'm looking forward to School Spirits. The Hex Hall series was quite entertaining so I'm thinking this'll be worth a try.

Jenni @ Alluring Reads said...

OMG this is such a whimsical blog! I love everything about it, especially your post signature. Super cute!

I need to pick up the Mila novella because I want to love that series and will be starting it soon. I am so bad about reading novellas though. I know they enhance the series and give you a better understanding of the characters so I always plan to read them and then never do. I fail!

Sana said...

Oh wow, great ebooks you got this week! I'm looking forward to reading School Spirits. Enjoy your books =D

Here's my Book Haul post.

Lettie said...

Good haul! A lot of books I'm jealous of :P
I normally list my posts for the week with a little comment alongside. Eg. if its a review I'll put the rating next to it!
For my monthly 'round ups' I just list my posts in groups like reviews, memes etc!
I love your blog design- it's beautiful!
