The Sunday Post #11




The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This meme was inspired in part by In My Mailbox. 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.

It is truly fall here in Vermont and it couldn't be lovelier. With a nip in the air Tara wants to cuddle on the couch again while I'm reading. (She prefers when I read on my Kindle as opposed to a paperback so I can rub her tummy at the same time!) Over the next couple weeks I'll be busy trying to finish up a bunch of review requests to make way for my annual "all Christmas, all the time reading" come early November! This year I have a huge stack I can't wait to get too. Actually, many of them are NetGalley requests so I won't feel like I'm totally slacking :)

Lastly, I got the most exciting news this week...a blurb from one of my reviews might get quoted in an upcoming book! I'll keep you posted. In the meantime, here is this week's haul:

  8. I love reading holiday themed books and both November and December will be heavily sprinkled with those reviews..it gets me in the mood. I bet the fall colors are lovely in Vermont this time of year. We have taken several vacations to the upper east coast during the fall and it was lovely! Awesome haul. Hope you and kitty stay warm and get some reading done. Thanks for being a part of The Sunday Post
