The Sunday Post 9th Edition




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.

 
Hi Folks! I hope everyone who celebrates Christmas had a lovely one and I can't wait to see your bookish hauls! We're coming up on another major holiday and will be bringing in the new year. I can't believe 2013 is almost here and I want to wish you all the best in the new year and to say I'm grateful for each and everyone of you for supporting Turning the Pages and for being such amazing followers and fellow bloggers. I've met a lot of wonderful new people spanning the world over and I hope all of you have a great New Year. Mr. Turning the Pages and I will probably be staying in this year to watch movies but I'd love to know your plans to ring in the new year so share them in the comments below.
Have a Safe & Happy New Year!

  2. Awesome haul! (Or at least the ones appropriate for my age, hehe) I loved Divergent and The Paladin Prophecy but I'm jelly that you have Temptation of Angels because I love Michelle Zink's work (even though I need to finish her trilogy first, lol).
    Thanks for stopping by and commenting on Bookwyrming Thoughts's Sunday Post! :)
