(Click Links to be taken directly to the posts)
So as you can see I had a pretty busy week. One of my busiest on the blog ever, I think. I have some great things scheduled for this week too.

Coming up This Week:
  • Giveaway: I'm excited to let you know that I'll be having a giveaway for Audrey's Guide to Witchcraft by Jody Gehrman
  • Review of Then Again by Diane Keaton
  • Review of You Know Your Way Home by Suzanne Jauchius
  • Review of  The Sword and The Prophet by Missy LaRae
  • Review of Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins (if I get it finished by the end of the week)
  • Behind the Blog: This week's topic is going to be summer fun:
As summer slowly winds down, I thought it might be nice to reflect on the sunny season. Did you take any fun trips this summer? Make an amazing memory you’d like to share? What’s your favorite summer activity? In relation to books: What are some good “beach reads” you’d recommend for these last few weekends of summer?

 FayeKathe, and I would love it if you joined us for Beind the Blog. Posts go live on Fridays at midnight GMT but feel free to write your topic and post before that, just be sure to link up on Friday. Or you can write your post anytime after Friday and just be sure to link up before the list closes the following Thursday.

I got Audrey's Guide to Witchcraft for review this week, and I'm so excited to read it. It looks great!

And I NEED to read Sweet Evil. I bought a copy forever ago, but still haven't read it yet. I'll be keeping an eye out for your review to hear what you thought about it.

Thanks for stopping by my IMM!

I will be reviewing Audrey's Guide to Witchcraft in October for Things that Go Bump in the Night. Ooh you grabbed Pushing the Limit..that is so on my wishlist. You had an amazing week and next week looks sweet too! Thanks so much for being a part of The Sunday Post

Kathy Martin said...

I hope you enjoy Pushing the Limits. I really loved it. Happy reading!

DBookWhore said...

I haven't heard of any of these but man my tbr pile is starting to hate me. Hope you enjoy all your books.

@Danie:

It really does look great. I have heard a lot of good things about it and can't wait to read it.

@Jenea: Thank you!

@Kimba: I think my review for Audrey's Guide to Witchcraft will likely be going up in October too, it depends on how fast I work through my author request list. I've been thinking about joining your Things That Go Bump in the Night Feature. I think it'll help me focus on finishing up my Witches Category for my 12X12 challenge.

@Kathy: Thank you!

@DBookWhore: Thanks! I'm glad to be getting fewer books, because I'm starting to make a tiny dent in my pile of books to read.

Pushing the Limits was awesome!!! For me it was one of those books that you could reread a bunch of times. Hope you enjoy your books. =) My STS/Sunday Post

Alison @ The Cheap Reader said...

Everyone keeps talking about Pushing the Limits! Guess I need to get my hands on it.

Enjoy your books, Melissa!

Melissa said...

@Harley:
I've been hearing that Pushing the Limits is really good. It's not on my immediate (meaning next 10) TBR but I'll get to it pretty soon.

@Alison: Thanks! I actually just entered the giveaway for Pushing the Limits solely because I kept seeing it popping up everywhere, lol.
