ICYMI Sunday 4 – I’m holding a Giveaway!


ICYMI (In Case You Missed It) Sunday is a new meme that I am planning to feature on the blog every week. It is based on the Sunday Post  which is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer, which was in turn inspired in part by the In My Mailbox meme. Basically, it allows me to let you know what went on the blog this week and anything interesting that is going on. It will also allow me to showcase any books I receive like the Showcase Sunday which is hosted by Vicky at Books, Biscuits, and Tea.

The first week of March has been a good week. The book I pre-ordered has arrived, but more of that later, and I seem to be slowly hauling myself out of my reading slump. Yay! :D  Whoops! Apparently I was more tired than I thought when I wrote this last night. You can definitely tell that spring is arriving in the UK, there’s been plenty of sun and blue sky this week – although the mornings haven’t always been as nice as the afternoons, with mist and such. I seem to have got back into the reading groove, which I’m pleased about. Hopefully I’ll keep it up this week.

There were two posts on the blog this week:

What else is going on? Not a lot of news this week compared with last, but I think there’s still some interesting stuff.

Not as much news this week, but there are some interesting things going on. I’m in two minds about THE VAMPIRE CHRONICLES news, but I guess I’ll have to wait until October to know for sure. And I really enjoyed Melissa de la Cruz’s interview. No new books from me this week – I’m still playing catch-up with my tbr, but the pile is getting smaller so hopefully I’ll be able to get new books soon-ish.

I would love to hear what you’ve been up to this week and what books, if any, you’ve got so please leave me a link in the comments below.

Thanks for stopping by :D

  1. Glad the weather is getting better, it’s slowly improving here too. Maybe spring will finally arrive.

    Interesting survey on reading, and somewhat alarming. The guy they quoted about reading being out of date… sigh. Applicable to the U.S. too I have no doubt.


  2. I don’t know about this kind of surveys : I come from a “not-rich” background, yet my father, sister and I read a lot. I’m a librarian but while my youngest daughter is a book enthusiast, the eldest only reads graphic novels – I raised them exactly the same way and they went to the same school ! Books don’t necessarily have a great representation among people, they are usually associated to the words “nerd” or “worm” lol ! Have a nice week 🙂


    • I totally understand where you’re coming from. My problem with the survey is that it is statistic, and statistics can say whatever the survey conductor wants them to show…so yeah, not a good survey really but I thought it was interesting that they chose to conduct it and the knee-jerk reaction that it is getting.
