The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the 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 and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

In Review~
Good morning everyone!  Did you all have a great Halloween?  This was our first Halloween in our new house and we did not have any idea what to expect in terms of trick-or-treaters.  There were a LOT more kids than in our last neighborhood and I ran out of candy pretty quickly.  I probably should have restricted the handfuls I was putting in each bag.  I loved seeing all the little costumes. 

I did manage to get my review for Midnight Exposure posted last week.  I’m so behind on reviews.

In reading news, I finished up Nightwatchers by Wendy Corsi Staub this week.  I will hopefully get a review written up on it later today.  I’m still trying to wrap my head around the events in the book.

Coming Up~
This is going to be an absolutely awesome week.  I’m so excited.  I love book club weeks for starters.  Tomorrow’s book club reads were the Ugly Duchess by Eloisa James and Nightwatchers and I was able to get both of those read for this meeting.  I don’t like it when I am not prepared!  
This coming weekend is Readers & ‘Ritas!  This will be my first readers event and I am so excited.  My book club has been reading some of the authors that will be present so if we weren’t already familiar with them, we will be.  This is going to be awesome.

I know that for the last two weeks, I have been saying that I was looking forward to starting Deep Kiss of Winter by Kresley Cole.  I am still looking forward to it, but it just got bumped down the TBR pile.  The reason?  Iced.  Iced by Karen Marie Moning (as if you didn’t know!  hahaha).  I was going to stick to my list, I really was, but I started seeing reviews popping up and the reviews were so awesome, I just couldn’t resist.  I had had it preordered, so it was sitting there, staring at me from my kindle while all the reviews played through my head.  I couldn’t stop myself, the pull was too great, I tapped the cover and that was that.  Decision made.  Iced it is.  I will make one comment about Iced, and then save the rest for my review.  I wish I had of re-read Shadowfever first.  It’s been so long, I’ve forgotten some of the things that are being referred to and I hate when that happens.

For audio, I’m still listening to Chelsea Cain’s Evil at Heart.  I’m about halfway through so may finish that up this week too.  I have reads I need to do for another book club so may pick one of those for my next audio.

Since Readers and ‘Ritas is going to be my first convention, does anyone have any tips they can share on how I can get the most out of the event?  I’m excited but so nervous too! 

I’m wanting to the blog redesigned and am looking for a good designer, so I’m hoping maybe some of you fellow bloggers can drop me a comment with a referral?  I’m not completely sure what I want yet, but I’m hoping once I look around at some portfolios I will get an idea.

I hope everyone has a great week!
