The Sunday Post {1}: The End of the Eternal Winter! (Or Not)

3.22.2015
The Sunday Post is hosted at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer, intended to recap the past week and share upcoming news!
It's no secret that weather in the midwest is unpredictable. (And horrible, if you ask me.) We were graced with the sun and 50 degree weather for two weeks. And then it snowed this morning. Nothing stuck, and I know we're doing way better than the northeast, but I HAD SO MUCH HOPE. I constantly wonder why I had to draw the short stick and end up in Wisconsin.

Anyway. It's been an exciting week! Especially, you know, since I came back from a two year hiatus.


 Bought: 
The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
Throne of Glass by Sarah J Mass


For Review:
Angelfall by Susan Ee
Bomb by Sarah Mussi
When You Leave by Monica Ropal
Moonlands by Steven Savile
Thanks to Netgalley and the publishers!
Cold Burn of Magic by Jennifer Estep - for the blog tour!
Thanks to Netgalley and Patricia and Anasheh at The Fantastic Flying Book Club! 
Awakening by Shannon Duffy
Won this one in a Twitter contest. Thanks to Heather Riccio! 

These should definitely keep me busy for awhile. I wanted to stock up a little bit before heading back to school so I could just focus on reading and reviewing. I am, of course, most excited for The Orphan Queen. I think I've been a Jodi Meadows fan since I was 15. (And incredibly embarrassing.) And I can't wait to get to Cold Burn of Magic - Jennifer Estep is always so fun!

In other news:
  • I got a job! For summer. At a grocery store. So it doesn't really matter now, since I'll be back at school, but they were nice enough to hire me before all the jobs are gone!
  • I reached out to Hazel at Stay Bookish about a new blog design! There will be cats involved. Look out for a new design in late May/early June!

  • I, unfortunately, head back to school. Write a history paper. Study endless hours of Chemistry. Cry a lot.
  • A list of the top ten books I'd like to revisit. (I can tell you that this list could probably be 25 books long. It's gonna be hard to trim it down.)
  • Review of Red Queen! Currently a little less than halfway through and have no idea how I feel.
  • A Discussion post (this is a subjective term....people actually have to say things for it to be classified as a discussion) about travel in novels!
I feel like my posts are too long for anyone to actually read. But I'd love to hear about what you did last week, what's coming up, or anything at all! Your comments make me smile more than anything. (This isn't even an exaggeration. Except for cats.)

  1. Welcome to The sunday post ;) From what I read on the net, the weather is simply not great everywhere - here included. I hope you love The throne of glass - if you do, try and read The assassin's blade (a collection of novellas) before you read Crown of midnight. You don't have to, but it helps ;) Have a great week !

    1. I didn't even know that that collection existed, so thanks for letting me know! I will definitely try to read that once I finish Throne of Glass.

  4. Aw, yay, welcome back to blogging! I have also contacted Hazel about a design, and I am SO EXCITED. I will be looking forward to seeing yours too, she does such great work!

    And you got a lot of great books! I just finished Throne of Glass (it was GOOD- I ordered the next book halfway through haha) and really want to read Red Queen and Orphan Queen. And Angelfall is SO good, I really hope you enjoy it!

  5. Welcome back to blogging, Zoey! :) You got some amazing books to talk about in your return and I hope you enjoy all of them (although I know what you think of Bomb now, heh). I'm weak when it comes to books I anticipate, too, so your reading two books at a time is very understandable :P Looking forward to next weeks's post! :)

  7. I would definitely say that coming back to the blogging world is a HUGE thing. Welcome back! I just recently read Throne of Glass (last week) and I'm currently halfway through the third book. They are so addicting. I'm going to cry when it ends and I have to wait until the next book is released.

  8. I LOVED all the three of your fantasies there, I hope you do too. I loved Angelfall AND the Raven Cycle is one of my favorite series ever. Happy reading!

  9. I love your haul! I'm pretty excited to read Throne of Glass, Red Queen and The Orphan Queen as well! I'm hoping I could get at least one from those on my next book store trip. :D

  10. That's great that you're getting back into blogging. I've been on (a much shorter ;P) hiatus since the fall. Life can get a bit crazy sometimes.

    Great haul! :D Ah, the Red Queen...I must read. I haven't read anything by Sarah J. Mass, but I've heard good things about them. Enjoy!

  11. Woo! Congrats on coming back after two years! That's so exciting! :D

    Ohh, I ordered Orphan Queen this week at work, and I'm just dying waiting for it to come in. Which, of course, it hasn't yet. I hope you love it!!
