The Sunday Session #8


Welcome to The Sunday Session! A Sunday Session is an Australian tradition usually held in pubs on a Sunday afternoon where people feeling a bit 'fragile' from a big weekend can listen to some chilled out music, have a late lunch, catch up with friends and maybe indulge in a little hair-of-the-dog. Usually on a Sunday I mooch about, read blogs, check out new releases and book news and just generally do SFA - so what better opportunity to look back at the past week's reading, posts and the new books I've picked up!


It's been a busy week for me - as this posts I'm JUST about finished with a week-long readathon through my GR group YLTO. It's a competitive readathon in teams, and I'm a competitive person, so I've been reading like crazy to rack up extra points and not been around much.

New Books
Only two books this week but I read seven - so I've actually reduced my TBR by 5 - hurrrah!
Silver: The Lost & Damned by Keira Michelle Telford - a massive thank you to KM for sending me this - my first ever physical proof copy, and signed!
Dearly, Beloved by Lia Habel


Books Read

The Virgin Cure by Ami McKay
The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa
Carrie by Stephen King
Ping by Susan Lowry
A Voice in the Distance by Tabitha Suzuma
Extinction Point by Paul Jones
Mockingbird by Walter Tevis

Phew! I spent literally EVERY spare minute of the day reading this week.

    1. I still need to read Dearly, Departed. I started it last week but I think I'll have to go back to the beginning - I was enjoying it though!

  5. Congrats on reducing your TBR pile by 5! I should do another read-a-thon as my TBR pile is out of control, but I tend to fail at those. Guess I lack that competitive edge or something. :(

    Silver is your first signed proof copy? Cool! Isn't it exciting when those show up in the mail? Love signed copies! :D
