Sunday Post #25: Pollen and Exciting News

by Aleen @ Lampshade Reader

Welcome back to the Sunday Post! Sit back, kick up your feet, and relax!


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ 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.

The weather has finally “normalized”. Even if it is slightly warmer than it should be. I know Spring is around the corner because the pollen is in full swing. We need a good rain to wash it all away. It’s on everything! ugh.

Last Sunday, I accepted a job as a personal assistant to an author friend. I’m so excited to start out on that path. I love working with authors and now it’s a bonafide job. I start April 1st. 🙂 Also, I received the “Top Reviewer” badge on NetGalley! Yay, I love unlocking new badges. LOL.

I’m a little late in posting my reviews that I said I would post this week. And, I was a little sluggish in my reading. I finished The Truth about Love and Dukes by Laura Lee Guhrke, but still need to write a review for it.

I won a copy of Where the Dead Lie by C.S. Harris. It’s Regency and Mystery all in one. I can’t resist that combo!


Review Copies/ARCs

I received review copies of No End to Love by Roberta Capizzi and The Spider and the Stone by Glen Craney( I actually received this a few days ago but forgot to mention it 🙂 ).
