Sunday Post

SundayPostThe Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog. 



It’s been a hectic week and I managed to miss queuing some posts so my apologies for no Top 10 Tuesday this week. Oops.

For those of you that read about Ruby last week I have sad news. Little Ruby is no longer with us. She became ill suddenly and on Tuesday we learned she had contracted Parvovirus while in the animal control facility. I could probably write an entire blog post about how much I’ll miss her because we bonded so well but I will refrain. :(

In other, less depressing news, I have finally located my desk under the mountain of Random Things that had been attacking it for so long and I am proud to report that I type this from a clean and organized desk space (for now anyway).




Don’t forget about my giveaway! I’m giving away two more copies of The Ice Cream Queen of Orchard Street!

Due to a clerical error with the publishing house they sent me ten copies instead of one and asked that I distribute them amongst people that would be interested in reading it so here I am.

You can find more information about the book here and on Goodreads.

As I mentioned in my Sunday Post last week I purchased The Hurricane Sister’s by Dorothea Benton Frank and began reading it while I wait for my copy of Brutal Youth to arrive.

So far, I am really enjoying it but I haven’t had much reading time this week. I’ve gotten maybe 50-75 pages of it read but I am very intrigued with it so far. The family in this book is both comical and sad so far which makes for a very realistic characterization. They remind me of my own family!

This was the last photo I got of Ruby. :( She was already feeling the beginnings of being sick here we just weren’t aware of it yet. I thought she was just being an adorable little sleepyhead that didn’t want to wake up yet. Love and miss you, baby girl.
