The Sunday Post #28













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.
So...my blog makeover is complete. What do you think??? I love it so much I just keep staring at it LOL!!! It is *so* me :) When I received a preview in my email at midnight Thursday night I had tears in my eyes and was so excited I could barely sleep. If you're thinking about having any work done on your blog, I can't recommend Glogirly Design highly enough. I'd be honored if you'd grab my button while you're here!

This past a week a stupid head cold really knocked me for a loop, but a blogger's work is never done! If you didn't get a chance yet, there's still time to win ebook copies of Penelope by Anya Wylde and The Cat's Meow by Stacey Kennedy. This week I'll be welcoming Amber Polo with an interview during her Retrieved blog tour, a special Valentine's Day edition of Cat Thursday, and I'll be telling you about a fundraiser that's close to my heart.

Hope everyone got through Winter Storm Nemo unscathed...we only got 9 inches here in northern Vermont.

  3. I love the book covers; especially Eternally 21, Waiting for Dead men's shoes, Murder, Money and Marzipan...love cute covers like these! Will be checking the synopsis for these.

    What are the Nancy Drew Diaries? I used to read Nancy Drew when I was a kid and have started re-reading Nancy Drew series.

  4. Melissa I forgot to tell you I LOVE your blog design! I didn't see your first design but I love this one but my fave color is pink so maybe I'm a bit bias LOL did you design this yourself?

    Melissa how do you do the threaded comments? I'd like to get a reply for each comment but I don't know how to change it :(

  7. Oh my gosh!! I love your site!!!!! I love your pink! I kind of thought I was over pink but I really love yours! I could visit all day :D And I really like your "cause" - I have a friend who went into law solely for her love of animals. Turned out her dream job at PETA or Humane Society didn't work out but you should see how many dogs she fits in her house!

    And I so recognize the Vermont love of Dunkin Donuts - I used to live in Maine (hubs is Border Patrol) and I prefer DD to Hortons) No DD in Michigan, though *sigh*

    Oh, and great books this week...

      Stopping at Dunkin Donuts this afternoon for a dark chocolate mocha :)

  9. Melanie, I can't compare the old and new blog designs since I've only just started following your blog, but I like the new design! Nice haul of new books this week -- that's what prompted me to follow your blog, since I like cozy mysteries. My TBR pile is pretty tall, too, so I was actually relieved not to get many new books this week!
