This is a fun 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.
I was almost back on track with my posts this past week. I got several books read, which was great. Let’s see what I accomplished as set out in last week’s The Sunday Post:
- Wrote and posted my review of Death and the Girl Next Door by Darynda Jones.
- I finished reading, wrote and posted my review of Black Swan Green by David Mitchell.
- Read and reviewed Serial Summer by Angel Lawson.
- Torched by Andrea Lynn Colt was read and posted about.
- I was unable to read Cloud Atlas, The Candidates, C I N, or Crashing Eden. Sometimes I have to change up what I am reading and have to push things back. My review for C I N is due next Friday, so I will get than one in for sure.
- Top Ten Tuesday: Santa’s Got a Brand New Bag (of Tricks). This is a mash-up of what books I want for Christmas, even if they won’t be out until 2013.
- Songs of the Week 12.8.2012 reflect what I heard the previous night at a middle school social. Videos are included in case you aren’t familiar with the song.
- Angel Lawson has her sequel to Wraith coming out on Tuesday, December 11th. I am posting a review of Shadow Bound on Monday the 10th.
- Tuesday will be my third installment of INKlings. I am posting an interview of the author of Wraith, et al., Angel Lawson. Stop by and find out about this author and her books that I have reviewed here on Ink and Page. Spoiler alert: they are very good.
- Tuesday’s INKlings post will also be a giveaway! Check it out. It will be open for a week.
- I picked up Darynda Jones’ Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet from the library. It was finally in after I’ve been on the waiting list for what seems like years. This adult paranormal romance series is one of my favorites. I finished it last week and will be posting a review sometime this week.
- While I was getting the aforementioned Jones book from the library, I saw a book by Louis Sachar called The Cardturner that sounded super interesting, dammit. I am trying to finish all of my indie pubs before the end of the year, and I ain’t gonna be able to do it if I’m picking up strays.
- I gave myself a week off from writing after finishing (WINNING!) NaNoWriMo. Now I need to finish the last half of my manuscript. Is it weird or unusual that the dreams I had while writing the book during November were more vivid, abundant and relating to my story? Has anyone else experienced this?
