The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer. 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.
I’ve been looking for something more regular to do with Sundays around here and The Sunday Post seems like a good way to share a couple of things and spread some love to other bloggers around the community.
Some of the more usual things talked about in The Post are things I already cover on Mondays with my ‘This Week in Reading’ posts, and although some of the more ‘news’ types of things may migrate over to Sundays at some point, here I’ll mainly be concentrating on newly acquired books and interesting posts from the past week I’d like to highlight from other book bloggers.
I’ve been really terrible about posting book hauls and I think I’ve only posted one this entire year (yikes!). I’ve also been bad at blog hopping lately, it feels like I’m always behind. I’m hoping this regular post will help keep me a bit more on track with things. *crosses fingers and toes*
New Book Arrivals at Way Too Fantasy
The only physical book I got last week was Wicked Fox by Kat Cho. I’m really excited for this one. Apparently even more than I realized because I had pre-ordered both a physical copy and an audiobook. Welp!
Picked up two audiobooks this week, The Defiant Heir by Melissa Curuso and the aforementioned Wicked Fox by Kat Cho.
A light week in ebooks! I picked up a romance novel, The Lady’s Guide to Celestial Mechanics by Olivia Waite. I also picked up a boxed set of Barbara Hambly’s Darwath Trilogy, because it was only 2.99 and who can resist?
Posts to Check Out from the Book Blogging Community
Here are some cool posts I came across this week in my blog hopping. Hope you get a chance to check these out if you haven’t already! Sorry this is such a long list, but I came across so many lovely posts. 🙂
The Orangutan Librarian had a great post about genre snobbery, what a great discussion! I’ve experienced genre snobbery quite a bit as a fantasy reader and this is definitely a relevant discussion to have.
Fantastic review of The Whisper Man by Alex North by Lynn @ Lynn’s Book Blog. She has me convinced to check this one out with this review. Love a book that gets such an enthusiastic response. 🙂
Pippa @ thelittlebookowl is giving out some Fantasy Recommendations. I can’t speak for all of these, but I loved Blood of Heirs by Alicia Wanstall-Burke–such a great book!
I love Little Free Libraries, so I was delighted when I saw Paul @ Paul’s Picks posting about a LFL as a family project. I love this so much. ❤
Caitlin over @ Realms of My Mind is gushing over a new game she loves, Child of Light! I guess I just love when people love things so much that they gush. If I were more of a gamer I’d probably check this one out, it sounds like fun.
Mogsy @ The BiblioSanctum has a really great post of some anticipated books coming out between July and September. So many great books to look forward to, and I’m still busy playing catch up!
Consu is discussing why Reading few books is OKAY over at her blog, Paper Eyed Girl. This is such a great post with fantastic advise. Take care of yourselves, book bloggers!
Jenia @ The Fantasy Inn did a lovely post of audiobook recommendations, perfect for listening to while taking hikes or exploring the world. I love this idea, so much fun. I need the exercise, as soon as my ankle gets a bit better. 🙂
Well, that’s all I’ve got for now. Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!
