Sunday Post #16


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.
It's another one of those weeks that we don't have much to share. School, life, and work have kept us from doing anything out of the ordinary to share. I am happy to say, however, that my cough is almost gone! I (Keira) am starting to feel human again.

In blog news we have a couple things going on. There are two giveaways under way Books That Need More Attention and the Race to 150 Giveaway. While you're here make sure to check those out if you haven't.

Over the next three months things will be a little bit slower around here. There will be some weeks that we're post heavy, but others where you may only see reviews and a couple features. Classes have Nikki swamped and I'm doing quite a bit of volunteering, plus the holidays are around the corner, so it's a busy time. We're not going anywhere though and didn't want anyone to think otherwise.

Book Review: Love is the Drug by Alaya Dawn Johnson 

From the author of THE SUMMER PRINCE, a novel that's John Grisham's THE PELICAN BRIEF meets Michael Crichton's THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN set at an elite Washington D.C. prep school.
Emily Bird was raised not to ask questions. She has perfect hair, the perfect boyfriend, and a perfect Ivy-League future. But a chance meeting with Roosevelt David, a homeland security agent, at a party for Washington DC's elite leads to Bird waking up in a hospital, days later, with no memory of the end of the night.
Meanwhile, the world has fallen apart: A deadly flu virus is sweeping the nation, forcing quarantines, curfews, even martial law. And Roosevelt is certain that Bird knows something. Something about the virus--something about her parents' top secret scientific work--something she shouldn't know.
The only one Bird can trust is Coffee, a quiet, outsider genius who deals drugs to their classmates and is a firm believer in conspiracy theories. And he believes in Bird. But as Bird and Coffee dig deeper into what really happened that night, Bird finds that she might know more than she remembers. And what she knows could unleash the biggest government scandal in US history.

Guest Review: Misbehaving by Tiffany Reisz

Wanted: Adventurous, open-minded man willing to try anything…
As a popular sex blogger, Beatriz gets paid to have orgasms. So being on deadline the week of her sister’s wedding isn’t as rough as it sounds. There’s just one hitch: Bea’s assignment is to write a review of a sex position manual, but she doesn’t have a plus one to play with.
The good news: Ben, the one who got away back in college, is also attending stag--and he's as temptingly gorgeous as ever.
The bad news: Ben turned down Bea’s offer of graduation night sex five years ago.
The best news: He’s not planning on making the same mistake twice.

  2. I like the cover for Misbehaving. And those are summy pretty boys there. My blog is going to be very busy this month for Halloween books and then I'll slow down in Novemver some to read books for Christmas. December will probably be busy in the beginning and then I'll slow down for the holidays.
