The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and it’s a chance to showcase new books and re-cap your week of blogging.

happy-mother's-day

To all the mothers out there, hope you’re enjoying your special excuse for being lazy and taking an “it’s all about ME” day!  I already received (and eaten) my Sheri’s Berries strawberries.  I absolutely LOVE being my son’s mom and I’m incredibly blessed to be a stay at home mom (sort of) and be able to homeschool him. 

I ended up getting sick this week with a head cold that knocked me out Tuesday and Wednesday.  Thursday night at work was awesome because I got to talk through the young adult book order with the YA librarian and that’s a total blast for me – to have my opinion matter and see my picks ordered (or not ordered in some cases).  I’m so damn lucky and I think only you guys would “get it” 🙂

Clean Sweep ARC challenge

 Update

I’ve only read one book off my goal list but I’ve ticked off three review books so YAY!  Here’s to being fickle!

 

  • Make It a Double (Last Call #2) by Sawyer Bennett
  • Bittersweet Darkness (The Order #3) by Nina Croft
  • Don’t Look Back by Jennifer L. Armentrout

  1. Never hesitate to share your books wishes with a librarian, we love to chat with our readers even if we can’t always buy all they want 🙂 These are some nice covers you got, they’re definitely interesting – except now, I’ve got The house of the rising sun song in my head !
    Happy Mother’s day, enjoy your week 😉

  4. Hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day. Our library actually has an online form you can complete requesting books they should purchase. I made a recommendation this summer regarding a local author’s book and they added to the collection. Since I requested it, I was the first one to check it out!

    Get well soon!
