Sunday Post: 02/10

Sunday Post

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 and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. See rules here: Sunday Post Meme


I wasn’t sure what I was going to talk about this week, then yesterday, I spotted this tweet in my @replies…

Brainchild of UKYA author Andy Rob, here’s a little about the awards from the UKYABA website:

Book-bloggers often create online awards for authors and publishers but, until now, there has been little to redress the balance. These awards seek to do just that, in the same spirit of fun and passion that bloggers exhibit every day. They have been voted on by publishers and authors and the awards themselves are kindly sponsored by some of the UK’s leading and most-prestigious publishing houses.

To say I was delightfully shocked and surprised is a massive understatement!

In other news, I’m going to have to be properly on top of my blogging this week, as I’m off away for a short break the following week, so will need to double up on the posts!

New Books This Week

Just the three books this week, two of which I’m already reading. This must be some sort of record! Cloudbound and Crooked Kingdom are both audiobooks, Born to Run is clearly a hardback. 😉

    I just saw Born To Run at the bookstore and I’m curious about it. Have enjoyed a lot of his music over the years. And congrats on the nomination! That’s awesome. Crooked Kingdom seems to be getting a lot of love, I need to get to those at some point.

    I was hoping to get a copy of Born to Run for review. My brother ADORES Springsteen (since a concert in the mid 1980s) and would have owed me forever!

      I was so tempted to ask for a review copy, but guessed there would be none available. Was able to call into my local book shop on the way in to work on release day.
