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:

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

Books I Have Finished

The Red Badge of Courage

 UPCOMING POSTS

  • The Stages of a Reader on Release Day
  • Top Ten Tuesday: Author Duos
  • Once Upon a Time…
  • Some sorta tag

RANDOM UPDATES

  • ONCE UPON A TIME IS BACK ON TV AND GUYS…ITS AMAZING.
  • Netflix –> Rules of Engagement –> No reason to leave house.
  • I don’t know if anyone has seen Rules of Engagement, but Timmy is by far one of my favorite characters. He kills me he’s so funny.
  • Woahhhh October 6. What a day to be alive.
  • Stephanie Meyer pulled a Beyonce.

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!

These are just some of the post ideas I have this week. Since I got two reviews in last week, I moved Heir of Fire back. You will be seeing it this week, because I have so many feelings about this series.

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

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

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.

Book-Related News!

There has been a lot of things going on in the book community, so I decided to share some I saw.

  • Unfortunately, the Paper Towns movie has been pushed to late July instead of early June. New release date: July 24th
  • Rick Yancey released name of third 5th Wave book: The Last Star
  • Veronica Roth new series
  • Stephanie Perkins new short story collection
  • Mockingjay Part 1 on DVD
  • The Mortal Instruments TV show is looking for cast members and will be on ABC Family (which was probably the best decision if it wants to stay on)
  • Marie Lu reveals cover to her new book The Rose Society

The Rose Society (The Young Elites, #2)

Upcoming Posts

I haven’t really though much about this week.

  • In the Afterlight Review
  • The Darkest Minds Triolgy Overall Opinion/Favorite Parts
  • Top Ten Books for Readers who like ____ (Might do an old TTT because I honestly can’t think of anything for this week)
  • Bookishly Ever After

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

What’s Going On

  • Set the clocks forward last night for daylight savings. I didn’t really mind losing an hour of sleep because it just means we are closer to spring. The snow is melting and it is starting to warm up outside. I just can’t wait to be able to read outside again.
  • My Disney Song Tag got a surprisingly great response and I see it floating around a bit. I love making tags more than pulling them off internet, so I’m going to put my thinking cap on and hopefully come up with some new ideas.
  • I almost forgot! You might have noticed how the tabs up top ^ have changed. I added Book Discussions, Features, and Tags. I can now organize a lot better. Book Discussion will just be anything relating to books. The Features tab will have all my Top Ten Tuesdays, Sunday Posts, and Exploring My Bookshelves. And tags will have tags, if that wasn’t self-explanatory enough.
