The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ 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’ve decided to start numbering these Sunday Post posts to differentiate between them, so issue #5 means this is the fifth time I’ve participated.
This week I thought I’d share the books I’ve collected over the past three weeks as I’ve been on vacation in the U.S. and taking full advantage of having easy access to English books! I have tried to be good and not spend too much money, but I’ve nevertheless managed to amass a collection of 13 books that I’ll be taking home that I didn’t have on the way over. Not too bad, right? (Humor me–we’ll see how bad it really is when I weigh my luggage!).
I Went to the U.S. on Vacation, and All I Brought Back Was:
Bought for the Kindle –
Wicked Intentions by Elizabeth Hoyt
Alpha and Omega by Patricia Briggs
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
Bought paper copies –
Faefever by Karen Marie Moning
Dreamfever by Karen Marie Moning
Taft by Ann Patchett
When the Emperor Was Divine by Julie Otsuka
The Midwife of the Blue Ridge by Christine Blevins
The Magicians by Lev Grossman
The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver
Won or given to me –
The Turning of Ann Merrick by Christine Blevins (And a fabulous giveaway prize box!!! Post on that next week.)
The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach
The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin
So that’s it. Not too bad, right? Right? 🙂 Now if I can just stay out of the bookstore until we leave on Tuesday, I might be able to get my suitcase past customs without being accused of being a book smuggler. And that’s not taking into account the books my husband and kids have gotten since we’ve been here–best not to mention those!
Have a great week, all.
