Sunday Post 1st Edition

The Sunday Post is a weekly Meme hosted by
It's a chance to share news, 
a post to 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

This is my first ever Sunday Post. I'm going to apologize in advance for the length of this post. It's going to end up being very long, because I haven't done a book haul post in about 8 weeks now, ever since I first had to take my blog hiatus. I was gone for 6 weeks and just returned on Wednesday, so all of these books are books that  were accumulated between April 23 and June 16th

This past week on Melissa's Midnight Musings  I posted reviews of:

I also featured:

As for what's coming up this week on the blog, I honestly don't know at this point. I have a lot to do and catch up on after being gone for so long so I can't say what I'll get accomplished this week. I can let you know that I am trying to organize a few giveaways for the near future and I should have at least one review done this week as well. And of course I'll have my Behind the Blog post up as well.

And now, for my massive book haul pile:

That's the entire pile of physical books I received while I was away, though I do have other e-books that I received as well. I'll break them down into categories so everyone can actually see what they are. As always clicking on the links will take you to the Goodreads descriptions of the books.
