The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

It’s Labor Day weekend here in the States. This is sad because it marks the end of summer.

My laptop is now fixed! The old one I was using completely gave out, so I was without one for over a week. I mean, I had my phone and Kindle so I was able to get on the internet, but I hate using them for blog stuff. Since I had a little blogging break, this post covers the last two weeks.

The only thing that really sucked was not being able to type up the reviews for books I read during that time. Now I need to go on a review writing spree.

I read 15 books in August. Please, please … hold your applause.

I have a giveaway for The Distance Between Us by Kasie West on Facebook. Just ‘like’ the status update. HERE.

      Maybe Someday is my favorite of hers, and a favorite in general. Ugly Love is my 2nd fav of hers.

      Thanks, Beth.

    I’m so glad you got a laptop back ! And 15 books ?! Wow ! The Cursed bloodline cover made me smile because I’ve seen that same couple under different angles on so many book covers that I would be surprised to not see them again lol !

    I’m so glad you’re enjoying the Addicted series. Gah. I have so much love for it. I want everyone to read it.

    I see some other fantastic books in your haul this week. Dirty Red and All Lined Up were both great, but for totally different reasons! I hope you enjoy both of them… and all the others!

      Same here. I want to MAKE everyone read that series.

      Dirty Red was really good. I actually don’t hate Leah anymore. lol.

      I already had the first book, but haven’t read it yet. I went ahead and grabbed these since they were on sale.

      I haven’t started the series yet, but grabbed these since they were on sale. I’ve had the 1st book for a long time though.

      At first there were withdrawals, but it was kind of nice after a few days.

  4. Oh yes, I HATE trying to do blog stuff on my mobile devices. Laptop only please! Glad you finally get it fixed. Glad to hear you loved Ugly Love. I wasn\’t sure about it, but thought it ended up being well done and beautifully written really. I also loved The 5th Wave so I\’m interested to see what you thought of that. Lots of books over the last two weeks. I\’ve got Freak of Nature too but haven\’t read it yet. And Tarryn Fisher is on my TBR list. Have a great week!

  5. I have definitely been noticing Ugly Love around…I have never read this author, but I am curious!

    Being without a computer sucks! I had a desktop for years, and then it got a little unreliable, to say the least, so I bought Lizzie Mae (my laptop).

  7. Nice batch of books! I hope you enjoy Night Huntress as much as I did. Six Months Later was good, and Untamed was pretty interesting, but I haven’t read further in the series.
    Enjoy your books!
