Sunday Edition Post 16

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.

Hello All!  It has been crazy with vacation and family visits etc. so I missed last week's post.  I will get you all fixed up today though on what you may have missed!

My sister, her husband and two boys have been in town so we decided to take them to San Antonio for a few days.  I was hit with the realization, I am so very out of shape.  Did you know there are like 340 some steps to go deep into the Natural Bridge Caverns?  Can you say "holy crap"?  They were beautiful though and definitely worth the workout.

We stayed in a hotel right on the Riverwalk so we didn't have to spend too much time driving around to different places.  We did miss the tour of the Alamo, but we did visit the outside.  There is so much to see along the riverwalk that we spent all our evenings walking along and visiting the shops and restaurants!

Then you can't visit San Antonio without a trip to Seaworld.  I am not one for the rides, but the kids had a great time on the roller coasters.  I loved the Sea Lions.  They are my favorite and we got to take in a show with them one huge walrus that knew how to do sit ups!  It was hilarious.  Definitely a trip worth making.

So that pretty summed up my week.  Crazy busy, my fitbit didn't know what hit it.  

My VS copy of Lover Revealed arrived this week.  I love when I forget I ordered something and it suddenly appears!  I am in desparate need of a new way to display my signed books.  I want the covers to show, but I am running out of space (not to mention my family is not too big on all those hot covers covering the walls of the house!).  I may have to give up that cover obsession and shelf them like my other books.  I need my own library.

If you have been as busy as we have been here, you may have missed some posts so here is what has been on the blog for the past couple of weeks:

We also saw the end of the Bad Boys of Romance Giveaway and our winner was Bookish Stacy!  Congrats Stacy and enjoy your goodies by Addison Fox!  Check out the winners to the grand prizes here.  Thanks to everyone for participating and I hope you all enjoyed our tribute to those bad boys we all love.

Up coming you can check out my reviews for Exclusively Yours By Shannon Stacey and Blood Therapy by Lynda Hilburn as well as a Waiting on Wednesday.

I must not forget, I currently have a giveaway going on because we totally blew away my Facebook page likes goal.  Winner of the giveaway will get a signed copy of Kiss of Midnight by Lara Adrian as well as some great swag.  Make sure to get some entries in the We Surpassed our Goal giveaway!

Has everyone chosen their new feed reader yet?  You can follow my blog with Bloglovin, or email.  I personally have chosen to use Feedly, and I have a button up on the left where you can follow with that option as well.

How has your summer been going?  Have you been getting lots of reading done?  My reading time has suffered terribly and I have got to start rewarding myself a little more.  I've been in a bit of a slump though where the books I'm reading just haven't been holding my interest.  I need to sort through my tbr and find something that I know will get me out of the slump for sure.

Have a great week everyone!
