The Sunday Post: 2 Weeks In…

Top Ten (1)

The Caffeinated Book Reviewer created The Sunday Post as a weekly feature for bloggers to review their week. With this feature, you can talk about your latest posts, let your readers know what is coming on the blog, and any other information. Check it out here for more information.

Here we are at the second week of January! Last week was a very productive reading week, and this week I hope to make it a very productive blogging week. I am currently playing around with my graphics, so this week may look a little different. In the experimental process!

Bookishly Ever After (Ever After, #1)JANUARY 12

This is a very anticipated debut novel, and it is coming out on Tuesday! In case you haven’t heard about this book yet, here is the goodreads summary.

“In a perfect world, sixteen-year-old Phoebe Martins’ life would be a book. Preferably a YA novel with magic and a hot paranormal love interest. Unfortunately, her life probably wouldn’t even qualify for a quiet contemporary. But when Phoebe finds out that Dev, the hottest guy in the clarinet section, might actually have a crush on her, she turns to her favorite books for advice. Phoebe overhauls her personality to become as awesome as her favorite heroines and win Dev’s heart. But if her plan fails, can she go back to her happy world of fictional boys after falling for the real thing”

Seven Ways WE Lie by Riley RedgateSeven Ways We Lie

So this book wasn’t bought, but rather acquired from Netgalley! It is one of my first arcs, and I am super excited to read it! Youcan read it March 8, but here is the summary for now.

“Paloma High School is ordinary by anyone’s standards. It’s got the same cliques, the same prejudices, the same suspect cafeteria food. And like every high school, every student has something to hide—whether it’s Kat, the thespian who conceals her trust issues onstage; or Valentine, the neurotic genius who’s planted the seed of a school scandal.When that scandal bubbles over, and rumors of a teacher-student affair surface, everyone starts hunting for someone to blame. For the unlikely allies at the heart of it all, the collision of their seven ordinary-seeming lives results in extraordinary change.”

 

As you can tell, I am playing around with my layout for The Sunday Post. I am trying to add more features to it. I’m not quite done yet, but I like where it is heading. Have a great week!

The Sunday Post: The New Year

Top Ten (1)

The Sunday Post is a weekly feature run by the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It gives bloggers a chance to recap the week, talk about news, and show what is in store for the coming week. For more information, visit her blog here.

It is officially  2016! I have recently had a lot of time on my hands, so I got a ton of posts out pretty much everyday last week! The links are below in case you missed one!

Yes I know, there were a boatload of end of the years! Trust me, I know, it was hard to schedule everything I wanted to do in! Unfortunately, this week I will not have the luxury of posting every day, but I definitely have some posts planned! Check them out….

  • Carry On Discussion (SPOILER EDITION)- I have so many things I need to gush/rant about that I wasn’t able to put in my review, so if you have read the book, this post is for you!
  • Bout of Books Update- Just a post updating my progress in the read-a-thon I am participating in this week.
  • A Tag that has yet to be determined 😉

As always, my brain may come up with some random post idea (which it normally does), and I’ll end up posting it as well.

OTHER NEWS

  • So I am in the process of making some new graphics, so (hopefully) by the next Sunday Post, this post’s layout will be completely different and have some pretty graphics!
  • I have also found a way that I like doing my reviews, so one by one I am going to be reformatting and updating my old reviews. This will take a while, but I am know I could use grammar checks on most of them anyway (considering quite a few were written before I knew how to spell check on here) (don’t blame me I was a newbie!)
  • Passenger comes out this week!! I am so excited to see how it turns out!

Before I do all the regular stuff, can we jus take a minute and appreciate that Winter is coming out in 2 days. 2 days. I have waited for this book forever and it is finally here. I know lately I haven’t had time to read, but I will read this one. I don’t care what it takes.

HERE ARE SOME OF MY RECENT POSTS:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CURRENTLY READING

The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, #1)

The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan

 UPCOMING POSTS

  • Top Ten Tuesday: Movie Adaptations ]
  • Book Spotlight: Red’s Untold Story
  • Probably some post that contains an emotional me rambling about Winter (could be next week)
  • TAG

Main goal this week is to get some posts in. I have no idea how long it will take me to read Winter, or how long it will be before I can write a review that is not pure ramble. We shall see.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My Own Book Choice Awards

You may have seen my Goodreads Choice Awards post where I had failed to check if there were more than two categories I could show you guys. However, after I was done voting, I had an idea. What if I hosted my own little Book Choice Awards with narrower categories. I’m currently investigating the best way to do this, so if you have any ideas, let me know down in the comments!

RANDOM UPDATES

  • I have a lot of candy from Halloween still. It’s like candy heaven.
  • Forever wishing I could get an ARC of a book…literally any book.
  • QUANTICO.  This show makes my Mondays (I record it on Sunday, watch on Monday). Does anyone else watch this show? It is beyond good.
  • I bought two books the other day, because apparently I enjoy adding more to my never-ending TBR pile.

I am bringing back The Sunday Post! I retired it for a while because I honestly didn’t know what posts to expect that upcoming week (if any). Today, I realized it would be a busy week, so I buckled down and pre-wrote some posts. I actually have 3 to 4 posts planned for this week, so I figured this is a great time to bring back The Sunday Post.

HERE ARE SOME OF MY RECENT POSTS:

CURRENTLY READING

The Assassin's Blade (Throne of Glass, #0.1-0.5)

I am actually blown away that it is August! July was gone in a second!

HERE ARE SOME OF MY RECENT POSTS:

The past few days were sort of busy for me, so I didn’t get everything I want in 😦 I will be getting to them next week though!

RANDOM UPDATES

  • Bath and Body Works released the Fall candles the other day and I am beyond excited. Fall is probably my favorite season, and I can’t wait for it to get here! As much as I love swimming and flip flops, I’m ready for sweaters and pumpkins!!
  • I went to a bookstore the other day and walked out with nothing. It was hard, but I’m trying to read the books I got before I buy anymore (which is very difficult btw).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Buddy Read Results

So that was a big fail on my part. I honestly went into this thinking the book would be thought-provoking and that I would have more discussions on it, but I had nothing. It didn’t stand out overall and was just ehhh. The buddy read this time didn’t go as I had hoped, but next time, I hope it’ll be better. I’m considering teaming up with someone and doing it together or something, I don’t know.

I am not able to comprehend the fact that this is the last week in July, and that Summer is almost over! Time goes fast we you are having fun!

HERE ARE SOME OF MY RECENT POSTS:

This week was pretty successful! I’m pretty sure this is the first week in my entire blogging career that I have posted one or more posts everyday during the week. i doubt that will happen to often, but it is still cool to blog all week!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 UPCOMING POSTS

  • Heir of Fire Review
  • Paper Towns Movie Review
  • Top Ten Tuesday: Characters Who are Fellow Book Nerds
  • July Buddy Read
    • Say What You Will Review
    • Discussion Post
    • List

These are just some of the post ideas I have this week. I have 3 reviews coming, so I may split them up a bit, so one may be coming next week.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Blog improvements

As you can tell. Find Me at the Library went under some construction this past week. How do you guys like the new theme and design? I just happened to come across this while looking at themes, and it had everything I wanted. I made some new post labels and it’s starting to look pretty good. I’m even working on expanding my menus, so keep checking those as well!

I finally made a rating system! Check it out under the Book Reviews tab!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Random Updates

  • I GOT TO SEE PAPER TOWNS!!! I’ll have a review on it posted soon, but here’s something to give you my opinion on it: LOVE ❤

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Books I bought this week

The Assassin's Blade (Throne of Glass, #0.1-0.5)

While I love the Throne of Glass covers, this novella’s cover is absolutely breathtaking, and I needed it on my shelf. Can’t wait to get to this, because I want more Celaena!!

I can’t believe we are already this far into July! This summer really is going by fast!

Here are some of my recent posts:

This week was pretty successful! I got two new things that I have been wanting to do forever

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 Upcoming Posts

  • Crown of Midnight Review (Definitely)
  • Heir of Fire Review ? (Possibly)
  • Top Ten Tuesday
    • The topic is about diverse books, and if I can’t think of enough, I’ll pick an older theme I haven’t done.
  • Totally Didn’t Tag
  • First “In the Library” Post

Who knows what else I may think of this week.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~Story time~

I BROKE MY BLOG. Don’t worry I think I got it fixed now. All I was doing was playing around with the design, as I am thinking of making some modifications in the future. One thing leads to another and then I end up with a blog with no menus or pages. I started this blog a little over a year ago, so I had forgotten the method I used that had taken me forever to figure out in the first place. After a few youtube videos and some clicking of buttons, I got it back to how it was. However, if you were on my blog at that time, I apologize for the absolute chaotic state it was in.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Complete Randomness

  • IT IS SO HOT. As soon as you walk outside you feel like you are stuck on the sun. As much as I love swimming and wearing tank tops, I’m slowly getting over summer. Fall is my favorite season and I just can’t wait for sweaters and boots and comfortable weather. Not to mention all the lovely books coming out in fall!
  • I keep seeing the middle grade book “Descendants” by Melissa de la Cruz and I am so intrigued. It has these “Once Upon a Time (the show)” vibes and I really want it. Maybe it’ll be my new middle grade book love.
  • ABC Family cartoon weekend is the best way to spend a weekend.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

July Buddy Read

This week I revealed what book we would be reading for the buddy read. I am planning on starting Say What You Will fairly soon. All the discussions start on July 28th, so if you want to participate, you have a lot of time still! I have one person so far interested in doing a post on their own blog, but if any others are interested, just let me know. Happy reading!

I hope everyone who celebrates Fourth of July had a great weekend! IF you don’t celebrate it, I hope you still had a great weekend!

Here are some of my recent posts:

AS you can tell, this week was sort of a dud. I just felt weird this week, and had absolutely no ideas. I did get my tags done though, so that was one success I guess.
