The Sunday Post

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. 

 I and also participating in two other memes. The first is Stacking The Shelves hosted by Tynga at Tynga's Reviews and the second is Mailbox Monday which is hosted by Martha from reviews from Martha's Bookshelf this month.. Stop by and take a look!

I'd like to start off by wishing all the Mothers out there a very Happy Mother's Day!!! Did any of you get any books for Mother's Day? I haven't, but the day is not over yet!

This was an exciting week for me as I am hosting my first giveaway! It's for a copy of The Underside of Joy by Sere Prince Halverson. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to pick a winner tonight and share it with them! You can enter here if you are interested. I did not get as much reading done as I hoped this week because i had a cold and can never concentrate when I have one. I did however manage to read Shelter by Francis Greenslade, review will be posted on the 15th, finish and review The Man Who Changed the way We Eat by Thomas McNamee, finish and review Temptation by Douglas Kennedy, and start When Morning Comes by Francis Ray. My favorite book moment of this week was having G read Lulu and the Brontosaurus to me by Judith Viorst!
