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.

I think the bottom has finally fallen out of summer.  Sixty degree temps are expected all next week here in southeast Michigan and I think that’s wonderful!  If it holds steady, my head will be one happy camper.




  • There are still three great blogoversary celebrations happening right now!  Kimba’s will be ending this week so RUN over to her’s immediately!  Melissa’s ends shortly after that and the gang at Rabid Reads are celebrating ALL month until the 30th.  I have buttons on my sidebar if you get lost.


  • Notice the crap-ton of spam sneaking through your filters lately?  I have!  It’s annoying, too.  They seem to be targeting the same post, too.  I checked to see if I missed a spam comment on that post but sadly no, the post is clean.  So I do my duty and keep marking these silly comments “Spam” so Akismet can learn and eventually the sneaky bastards will disappear from my sight. I checked out Akismet’s blog.  On their post dated September 1st, 2014, they make the comment, “… As always, if your own missed spam or false positive numbers are on the rise, we’d love to help. You can reach out through our contact form.”  I tried to do that but unfortunately, no one is home.  I hate when that happens…


  • Ashley at Nosegraze was most kind to share some most timely help on ridding ourselves of all this unwanted, unmarked spam that keeps slipping through.  In her post last Thursday on her Bitchin’ Book Blog feature, she gets down to the actual steps you can take to make your blog squeaky clean and no hassle 😀  Thanks again, girlie!!!


  • With giveaway season fast approaching, Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer also has an extremely important (and dare I say “timely” again) post about giveaways.  She talks laws, rules, tips, and prizes!  I’ve got some work to do on my giveaway policy, that’s for sure!


Lots of other happenings going on for October!




Phew…. I might be out of breathe…  that was a lot of news!  And I barely tried!

Kindling the Moon Summoning the night banishing the dark








Thank you very much, Pocket Books, for sending these to me!  I’ve been meaning to start this series!  I actually owned Summoning the Night already but now I’m only missing one from the series, YAY!

  1. Glad you’re enjoying the cooler temps, I am too actually although a couple of mornings last week I think it dipped in the 40’s and I wasn’t ready for that! 🙂 Loving the start of fall though this year. That holiday anthology looks nice, will look forward to your thoughts on that.

    Nice to see the HOHOHO readathon coming back around too.
