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.
If you'd like to participate with The Sunday Salon, it is now a Facebook group.
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. This is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between! This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!
I'm also linking to Stacking The Shelves which is hosted by Team Tynga's Reviews.
Happy Sunday and Monday!
Another week begins and another busy blog week ends for me. I'm participating in the Midsummer's Eve Giveaway Hop. I'm giving away four cozy mysteries. Just click on the button in my sidebar to enter.
One thing I'm changing this week...I'm not going to be putting the collage of my upcoming reads up anymore. It's very pretty but it's also very overwhelming to see all those books that need "to be read". Very few of them seem to move to the "read" list. Instead, as the months go along, more books get added because of scheduled blog tours. So, I will just put up the next book that I will be reading. I'm going to be keeping a handwritten list next to my computer of the next books I have to read and will cross them off as I get them done. Hopefully none of them will fall through the cracks that way...maybe :)
Eventually, everything will get read. It's just that blog tours end up getting priority and, of course, there are author/publisher/publicist requests and NetGalley/Edelweiss. I've gotten very good at limiting what I accept, but that doesn't mean what I already have goes away. I need to read those and I really really really need to read books just because I want to. If it wasn't for Lori's Just for Fun Reading Challenge, I wouldn't even be reading one a month. I want to do more than that since my TBR is humongous. Besides, there are some books there that I truly do want to read. It's my own fault I got into this mess, but it's time for me to get myself out of it. LOL
Onto other things...I saw the movie The Book Thief and I thought it was really good. I read the book a few years back and thought it was excellent. The book was just as good, which rarely happens.
A couple of TV shows that I've been looking forward to start this week... the final season of True Blood, The Last Ship (a new thriller on TNT), Under the Dome, Covert Affairs and Falling Skies. I'm probably leaving some out. It's nice to have Rizzoli & Isles, Rookie Blue and Royal Pains back. I seem to have just has many TV shows to watch in the summer as I do in the fall. They look good though.
I hope you are all enjoying your summer and reading great books! Have a great week!
