Sunday Post #8
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by the amazing Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It is a chance to share news, 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.
I have decided to make The Sunday Post a monthly feature at the blog and will use it to do a book haul and do a recap of what’s gone on around the blog during the last month.

August was a pretty good month in terms of new books. The Wall O’ Books, aka my print TBR, continues to grow and taunt me as if it knows I can’t read all of the pretties anytime soon. Most of the books in the first picture are ones recommended by Kat over at Katytastic and I love her for it since I really needed some contemporaries to go with all of my fantasy/sci-fi/paranormal stuff. Keeper of the Lost Cities & The Treachery of Beautiful Things were both just released in paperback form so I thought it was a great time to grab them. Perdition, The Beginning of Everything, Gated & Indelible were all brand new releases I had on pre-order. All of the Jeremy C. Shipp books were ones I had been meaning to get for a while and now I finally have them on my shelves! Fantasy Life (all about fantasy football) I won by signing up for a fantasy sports website which was pretty cool and Contaminated was won in a giveaway over at My Shelf Confessions!
