Sunday Post

Sunday Post is a weekly feature hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Reviewer. It's main purpose is similar to that of a Sunday newspaper; recap of the week gone by, additions to your library and what is going on in the book blogging community.

Addition to my Library 

I know I haven't been doing my participated memes regularly, apologies as I'm still trying to figure a routine and schedule, so please bare with me till I do. I'm wanting to do an updating post, like The Sunday Post, and I do want to do a Stacking The Shelves post, but I may do it every two weeks because I don't think I get enough haul to do it weekly. Starting from the next Stacking The Shelves, I'll also be adding "Books for Review" as I haven't really been specifying those in my list. 


It included:-

- $35 Amazon Gift Card
- Signed Paperback copy of Pulse by HJ Daly
- Signed Pulse bookmark
- Pulse pen
- Pulse card
- Pulse cloth bag
- Beautiful Flower hardback notebook

I absolutely loved the bag and the pen! I'm also very excited to spend my $35 Amazon Gift card.

Gah, The Program! I cannot WAIT to read it. I'm hoping I can wait and find it on sale somewhere because I'm a huge fan of Suzanne's writing in her A Need So Beautiful books.

I can't wait to see your thoughts on Komal's book. She's a friend of mine, though I haven't had the chance to read anything of hers yet!

Ooo, lots of good books! I'm reading Life After Theft right now and like it alright. I want to read The Program. I've been hearing wonderful things about it. I'm about to start Pandemonium soon, so I'll get to Requiem eventually. Haha.

Also, that notebook from the first giveaway is really cute. Looove it.

Ashley said...

I got Sweet Peril too!! I hope it's good. :) And OMG The Program is FABULOUS! It was even better than I thought it would be. I hope you like it!

Great haul! The Cadet of Tildor sounds great. And I've heard good things about The Program. Thanks for stopping by. Happy reading!

Melissa (My words and pages) said...

Ooo, some really good things here. :) Hope you enjoy all your books. :)

I too posted a Sunday Post, if you'd like to stop by...

I've had the Cadet of Tildor on my ereader for a while.
Requiem was awesome!! Enjoy it!

PS Love your blog name. Is it in any relation to Munsch's book Paperbag Princess? (Just wondering because it's my favourite Munsch story)

I can't wait for Dark Triumph, but it comes out next month in the UK. :( Enjoy your books, and thanks for stopping by my blog.

Jen said...

Eleanor and Park was one of my recent favorites! And Dark Triumph is SO good. Enjoy all your books -- thanks for stopping by :)

I'm loving the e-books you bought! I need to start Dark Triumph soon! I loved Grave Mercy and am really excited to get Sybella's perspective. I hear The Program is similar to Slated, which I loved, but I wonder if that will make me more critical.. Requiem fell a little flat for me but so did Pandemonium. I know it got a lot of mixed reviews. I hope you find yourself loving it though! Thanks for stopping by!
