The Sunday Post 10.5.2014 Edition

I am in some kind of fried food coma, dreaming of a variety of consumables cooked to a delicious, greasy crisp (is that an oxymoron?) by the time this is published. In other words, I will be sound asleep and snoring after attending the State Fair of Texas. So please hold it down while you read this. And rub my aching tummy.

What Should I Read Next?

UPDATE: I plan on posting my first of this series in November! However, I am still looking for some people to interview for my site. You can be a blogger, author, reader, whatever. I am going to start a weekly post about how to find books that are similar to something great you just read. You will be featured in an interview along with all of your pertinent social media data! Please email me or leave a message on the comments in the original post if you are interested!

Have a great week!

This is a meme started by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. As she says:

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.

    1. Awesome! That’s what I did, too, the summer my daughter turned 11. We read a book, then watched the movie. We were aiming to get finished so she could see the last 2 movies in the theater, and we made it!

  1. I love fairs, but haven’t been in many years. It is always so hot here during fair time (even in October); and the parking is horrific. Plus…a lot of walking in the heat.

    There is night, of course, but our fair is in a really sketchy part of town…LOL.

    I am curious about When and Illusions of Fate. Enjoy! And thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. I used to be a one-book-at-a-time gal, finishing everything that I started, regardless. Now I get so many books, I am like a magpie. Whatever new, shiny thing catches my eye might be too much for me to ignore.

      Thanks for coming to my blog!

  2. I hope you enjoyed the feast 🙂
    I’ve been curious about Jenny Han and David Levithan’s works. Maybe I’ll try someday. Have a great week! 🙂

    1. I did. You have to pay with coupons instead of money, so you don’t realize until you get home how much money you spent. Oh well!

      I highly recommend David Levithan. I’ve read 3 of his books now.

      Happy Monday!

  3. Illusions of Fate seems like something I might read, so will have to check out your review.

    I fancy a reread of P&P as well, and Harry Potter. I think I’ve read the whole series just once so far, so I might give that one a go first.

    Happy reading 🙂

    1. Yes, try it out and let me know what you think. I used to re-read the previous HP when the next one came out so I didn’t forget anything…so I haven’t read them since my daughter turned 11 and I read the series out loud to her. They are hard to squeeze in!

      Have a great day!
