The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer and it’s a chance to showcase new books and re-cap your week of blogging.
I was pretty busy this week! My 9 year old son had two of his baby teeth pulled to allow his permanent teeth to “float” forward into their proper places. This is all in preparation for the braces he’ll for sure have to get. I appreciate that they start braces younger than they did when I was a kid. I was 18 when I finally got my braces off. My son won’t have to deal with first dates with braces on his teeth.
Did you attend the NetGalley Challenge Webinar this past Tuesday? I thought it was actually very beneficial for me. It wasn’t preachy like other review writing events I’ve attended (cough, cough LibraryReads/Edelweiss cough, cough) and I can always use fresh ideas for writing reviews. I definitely appreciated the ideas for getting publishers to notice my reviews on NetGalley, too. If you missed the webinar, you’ll find it archived on NetGalley’s blog.
The other webinar I attended is one I usually always attend – Booklist’s YA Announcements: Fall 2015. I LOVE to hear the publishers talk about upcoming books. It’s always interesting to see which books they’re heavily promoting and to get background information on some of the books.

So why do I consider myself evil? Because I saw some great reviews for a few books so I, uh…
This is hard to say out loud! I almost hate to admit I did this, but, ummmmm…
…it so not in the “blogger-code” or some such nonsense, uhhh…
…but I went on NetGalley and Edelweiss and got review copies for the books. Why do I feel so evil? I have no clue!
A huge thank you to Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, HarperCollins, and HMH Books for Young Readers!
Last week I totally forgot to include this Audible audio book that was gifted to me out of the clear blue sky!
I received this from Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer mostly, I think, to shut me up about my cluelessness about the appeal of this series. I was like, “She’s a zombie, she’s dead, what more could there be?” Clearly I’m an idiot because this audio is freakin’ fantastic!!! I highly recommend listening to this one because the narrator is unbelievably entertaining with her accent and perfect reading! I giggle out loud continuously while listening to this. Thank you tons, Kimba!!!
Have a fabulous week!
