The Sunday Post #1

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 and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. 

Hello Everyone! This is my first time participating in The Sunday Post. I thought this would be a great way for me to wrap up the week and to introduce the next week! 

So I've been trying to get my blog back on track now that I'm out of school for the summer. I'm also in between jobs so I'm not too busy to read and review. I'm pretty proud of myself because I've been able to post reviews about twice a week for two weeks now! I also thought I'd give Netgalley another try and request some e-arcs. I'm happy to say that I was approved for most of the ones I requested! I had some difficulty with that in the past and wasn't sure that it would be any different now, but I'm glad that things are looking up for me, haha. 

I'm also eagerly awaiting a package from Amazon full of a few books and a neat gadget that will help with filming videos. I only have my phone to film videos but there isn't any way to place it on the old tripod I have, so I bought a holder for it and am excited to be able to start filming videos. I used to have a BookTube channel but after two different attempts I couldn't commit. I'm starting again but this will make things so much easier! 

Okay, long post but on to the happenings of this week!

How has your week been?


  1. My netgalley is almost to 80% and I am not trying so hard not to request any's going to be very hard :)

    Good luck with the Booktube! That's sounds like fun but I don't have a face for video :)

    I hope you have a fantastic week, Vanessa! Happy Reading!

    1. Thank you Michelle! It is pretty fun and I hope I can keep it up once I start.
      Have a fantastic week yourself!

  2. Welcome to the Sunday Post! I just finished reading Slammed a week or so ago, and loved it! I also love Dream a Little Dream by Kerstin Gier. Looks like maybe we got some of the same books too! Hope you have a great week!
