The Sunday Post : Get your Bookish News

October 6, 2013 meme, The Sunday Post 31

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.  Grab a cuppa and let me bend your ear (eyes?) for a few minutes with all my bookish news.

 

My Bookish News : 

As you can see I have made the move to wordpress!  Welcome to Between My Lines!  Thanks to lots of help from Ashley from Creative Whim it was a lot smoother than I expected.  I still have lots of tweaking to do and I have a lot to learn in this brave new word of self hosting but it’s exciting and I’m always up for a challenge.  I’ve been keeping track of the good, the bad and ugly of my move so expect a post with all the gory details soon.

Second Chance SundayThis is what happened here this week:

Bookish Chat – An argument in favour of genre -hopping – why I jump around and why you might like to try it every now and again

Book Review : This Fragile Life by Kate Hewitt – 5 stars for an adult fiction that is heart wrenching, wise and beautiful.

TTT – Book Turn offs – what gets my goat in books

Book Review: Sex & Violence by Carrie Mesrobian – 4 stars for a contemporary, male pov YA that is refreshingly different

Book Review : Ten Tiny Breaths by K. A. Tucker – 3.5 stars for a really enjoyable NA but it just got a tad melodramatic for me to really love it

Second Chance SundaySome posts that caught my eye around the blogosphere.  Do yourself a favour and go Sunday Visiting?!

I’ve been a slacker this week.  But only because I’ve been too busy unpacking boxes here at my new home.  Next week, I’ll be better at visiting and finding great links, promise!

Books I have received to review:

Thanks to Penguin Ireland for the books below.  I’m always on the look out for new Irish authors so it was great to received such a varied selection.  I already love Sinead Moriarty but all the others are new to me and I look forward to checking them out.

thick and thin Love is the easy bit This child of mine The Herbalist
And O’Brien Press were good to me too.  I always feel there isn’t enough YA written by Irish authors so I was delighted when Missing Ellen turned up in my letterbox.

 Thanks to NetGalley for The In-Between.   A YA where the mc is possibly a psychotic character or, perhaps, one who may be experiencing paranormal events  Sounds good!
The in-between
Thanks to Edelweiss (wonders will never cease!) for The Last Forever.  I read an adult book by Deb Caletti earlier this year and I’m looking forward to trying a YA one by her now.
The last forever

Books I have bought:

None! I’m back on operation catch up for a few weeks.

So that’s  my week wrapped up.  Happy Reading to all.

    It’s so nice to see another genre-hopper. So many people just want to stay in one – and well, I don’t get that!

    Nice list – I may need to look further into some of your titles!

    (and Ashley is wonderful! I was unsure about it all – but mostly it’s gone smoothly! )

      Oh are you are another wordpress convertee! I am the same, it’s been smoother than I thought but it’s still a learning curve. My biggest problem is impatience, I want to everything all at once and have to slow down a little bit and just fix things bit by bit.

      I love reading Irish authors as they are just so familiar. So I was hyper with this weeks post, I don’t know where to start!

      That’s nice that you are in Dublin soon. I’d recommend Hodges and Figgis as the best bookshop if you are looking for one!

      Thanks Laurel. This child of mine is by an Irish Author who has a pretty quirky sense of humour so I’m really looking forward to it.

      Thanks Kim, I have been taking notes so once I’m well settled in I’ll do a post all about my experiences. With so many moving, I think it’s handy. I know I personally used yours a lot during my move.
      And yes, I’m loving Penguin at the moment!

      I was like that for a long time. I’m delighted I took the plunge now and I’m just sorry I didn’t do it sooner! I know it’s a big decision to go from zero cost to paying for what is a hobby.

    Thanks Asti, you know how much I love my Irish authors so I was jumping up and down when I got my parcels this week! Hopefully some will impress me enough to make a Green Giant post 🙂
    I’ve a ton of notes about my move so the post will come as soon as I’ve settled in a little. If you want an exclusive hint, the bad is I lost my disqus comments which was really disappointing but I’m over it now.

    • Asti (A Bookish Heart)

      Oooooh you know, I am pretty sure I have heard that from somewhere else before! Or wait, maybe it wasn’t from when they made the move but just when they decided to move from using Disqus back to their regular commenting system… Something like that. Still, I can definitely understand how that can be frustrating. It’s like you work so hard to get people to interact and those comments mean so much and then suddenly they’re gone 🙁 Boo!
