The Sunday Post : Get your Bookish News #52

March 13, 2016 meme, The Sunday Post 23

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

Sunday Post   *********************************************************************************************************************************

Randomness:

I’m back!  *looks around sheepishly to see if anyone else is here*  It has been forever since I did a Sunday Post and I’ve missed you all.  I wasn’t really in a slump but was just crazy busy with other stuff and kept putting the blog on the back burner.  But I’m back trying to prioritise it properly now as I feel like I’m missing something important in my life when I neglect it.

And I’m not around today either!  Jeez, that’s a bad start but I will be around tonight and during the week to reply to comments and visit back.  Today I’m doing something that has been on my bucket list for the longest time.  I’m going to the ballet, the Royal Moscow Ballet to be precise and I’m so excited.  If you know me, you know I love ballet books (and tv shows and movies) so I’m hoping the real thing will be just as magical as I imagine it to be.

I also attended a publisher event held by Penguin Random House.  It was amazing, I got to meet other bloggers, had a chat with some of those working my dream job at the publishers and heard 5 authors talk about what inspired their book.  And I left with a bag of books that I can’t wait to read and review.  I had to take a day off work to attend it as it was held in Dublin but it was totally worth it.

Taking Control of My TBR update:

I’m joining in this challenge which is hosted by Kim.  Books published after 1 March don’t count so a lot of my reads this week don’t qualify.  But I have reread Harry Potter, I’m in the middle of The Good Father by Diane Chamberlain (excellent so far) and well that’s it.  But 2 is better than done, right? 🙂

Second Chance Sunday – What happened here this week:

***********************************************************************************************************************************************

Second Chance Sunday – What caught my eye.  Why not go Sunday visiting?

I have been the WORST blogger friend lately.  I swear to do better and next week, I’ll try to have loads of tantalising links for you all to visit.

 

************************************************************************************************************************************

Books I have received to review:

Sisters and Lies The Last Days of Summer My Name is Leon Knights of the Borrowed Dark Fool Me Once Trivial Pursuits Lying in Wait Somewhere Inside of HappyThe One in a Million Boy The Butterfly SummerBlack Rabbit Hall Plain Jane

 

 

OMG, so many new books.  I quite seriously don’t know where to start.  Each one looks more tempting than the next.  And all these arcs make me beyond grateful for publishers and authors for putting them into my greedy bookish hands.

**************************************************************************************************************

Books I have bought:

With all those review books, you’d think I wouldn’t have bought any new books.  What is wrong with me!  Anyone want to hire me as a professional reader as otherwise I’ll never get through my TBR.

Truth Witch Secret Lives The Silkworm The Other MeCaching In

 

 

**********************************************************************************************************************************

Between the Lines is also on Facebook sharing details of kindle freebies and great giveaways as well as other random bits and pieces.  So if you use FB, please like my page and leave a comment so I can like you back!

Or join me on Instagram as I’m a wanna-be #bookstagrammer and I love taking photos of my books.  It is seriously one of my favourite things to do as soon as I get a new book.  I also have photos of my stationery hauls, my walks, my fitness journey and random photos of Ireland but if you only come for the books, that’s aok!

 

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

      Thanks Cynthia, I’m glad I’m back too! And I’m equally excited about my new books and the trip to the ballet 🙂

  1. Greg

    Hey Trish! Hope the ballet is awesome, I’m sure it will be. 🙂 And you have a lot of nice looking books too. I’m curious about Truthwitch.

      Thanks Greg, I’m hoping I’ll love the ballet but either way it’s an item ticked off the bucket list.

    Welcome back Trish! Lovely to see you again and I love many of your books.

    The ballet sounds good though I have to admit I’m not a huge fan. My SIL and niece are and will go and see the several shows when a decent ballet company visits their capital city in Oz.

    The event at Penguin Random House sounds great too. I wish I’d understood publishing job options when I was young. I’m far too old now but I think I would have loved to have worked in publishing!

      I thoroughly enjoyed the ballet Deborah, I was hoping I would but you just never know until you go.
      I think a job in publishing would be ace! But I know (even apart from my age) that I’m in the wrong location for it as there are no publishing houses within a commuting distance from my house. But it was nice to hear all about it!

      I had to scroll back up to see which book was Secret Lives! That’s a sure sign I have too many books right now! I got that one on offer in the supermarket, it was a great price and I couldn’t leave it behind. I’m reading The Good Father by Diane right now too and it’s great, I just love all her books 😀

      Buddy read would be fun!

  3. Kristin @ Addicted to HEA

    I am so freakin’ excited for you today!!! I hope you have the most indulgent and elegant time at the ballet! How fun! <3

    And I love that you got to take off work for the book event in Dublin! Talking with other bloggers and publishers IN PERSON is so motivating and you learn so much! And oh, the fantastic books, too 😉

  4. Laurel-Rain Snow

    What a tempting haul of books! I love anything by Diane Chamberlain, so I’m sure you’ll enjoy those…the others are new to me, but I’m going to check them out.

    Have a great time at the ballet! It’s fun to do things on our bucket lists.

    Thanks for sharing, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  5. Rita @ View From My Home

    Glad you had fun in Dublin! And what a great haul you brought back with you. Between those, your purchases, and your Netgalley you’re drowning in lovely books 🙂

    Enjoy the ballet– I know you love dancing and ballet so this will be a dream night for you. Happy to have you back. I missed your Sunday Posts lately!

  6. Tracy (@Cornerfolds)

    Wow! It sounds like you’ve been having a great time! I hope you enjoy the ballet and that event sounds incredible! I’d love to eventually meet some other bloggers in person! Awesome haul! I recently got Truthwitch too, but haven’t read it yet. Have a fantastic week! 😀

  7. Katherine @ I Wish I Lived in a Library

    I want to read Butterfly Summer and Lying in Wait looks amazing! I just read Black Rabbit Hall and enjoyed it. I hope you do too. The ballet sounds amazing! I can’t think of the last time I went to the ballet but I always enjoy it. Glad to see you and have a great week!

  8. Lola

    I am sorry to hear you’ve been so busy! I hope things quiet down a bit for you. I am glad to see you’re back!

    And that’s so exciting you finally get to see a ballet. I know you liked to read about it in books, so I assumed you had been to one. I hope you have fun!

    That publisher event sounds awesome! I worked for a small publisher as publicist for a little while, but I am happier with my current job owning my own blog tour company.

    You sure got a lot of new exciting books these weeks! It’s hard to decide what to read next when all your books look good. I’ve heard good things about the Truthwitch! I also own Caching In, once got it during a free days promo I think. It sounds like a fun one! Have a great week!

  9. Let's Get Beyond Tolerance

    Yay, you’re back!!! And you have The Silkworm! I love that series so much, and I feel like Career of Evil (the third one) is the best so far. Can’t wait for the fourth.

    The publisher event sounds great. Glad you were able to make it! Have fun at the ballet too! I’ve never been to one, but I’m so curious.

    -Lauren

    Why hellllloooooo! It’s good to see you back. 🙂 Sounds like you’ve been terribly busy and, even though your absence was missed, it’s good you had a lot to do! I see lots of books in your TBR pile I know. I hope you have a great week!
