The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @ 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.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there! I’m a little biased but I reckon mine is the best – putting up with me is no easy feat. I bought her a Kobo Aura HD because her Sony eReader had pretty much bitten the dust.
I needed a bit of a break from reviewing so I buried myself in books this week. I managed to read all of Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark series. Reading so many books from the one series in a row is a two edged sword as you don’t forget characters or relationships but you tend to get irritated with repetition of text and tropes. The number of almost-rape scenes in this series is phenomenal and it is a trope I quite frankly despise. My overall impression of the series is all over the place as I really enjoyed the books that avoided it and loathed the ones that didn’t. The Simon and Schuster covers are just gorgeous and apart from the Lothaire one, all rock the same vibe.
I accidentally finished my TBR Pile Reading Challenge by reading all these pre-2014 books so have upped my challenge from 31-40 to 50+.
