This meme was created for bloggers to spotlight posts they published in the week, as well as to talk about what they plan to write in the week that’s coming.

Sunday post is also great opportunity to showcase books we got in the week behind us.

Hi Guys!

I know I am a bit late with my Sunday Post, but since I didn’t schedule one, and I was at my sister today (we just came back few minutes ago), I realized now it’s the perfect time to write and post one.

Believe it or not, this week I haven’t read a book. I read, but almost nothing. I guess I’m in a reading slump.

What I did this week was cleaning my house and reorganizing my book shelves.
When I was done, I decided to get rid of 43 books.
I found the new owners for more then a half of them, but there are still 16 books that need a new owner.

 

Last week on Book Dust Magic:

Monday: I reviewed The Fifth Letter by Nicola Moriarty 

Tuesday: I posted my February Wrap Up 

Wednesday: I reviewed Annabel Lee by Mike Nappa

Saturday: I reviewed Cruel Beautiful World by Caroline Leavitt

 

Next week on Book Dust Magic:

Upcoming reviews:

  

Book Haul:

For review:

 Lovely people from Simon & Schuster sent me this beautiful hardback edition of Orange Blossom Days. I will definitely read this one next.

 I was so happy when I got approved for eARC of this novel on Edelweiss.

 I couldn’t wait so I started Things That Happened Before the Earthquake yesterday. So far it’s good, but I’m only 15% in.

 

That is it!

Hi Guys!

It’s been a while (again) since the last time I wrote my Sunday Post. I think it has been three weeks.
I am not going to talk about previous weeks, but only about this, pretty slow week blogging whise.

I wrote only 2 blog posts. I have a feeling that some publishers are maybe angry at me for being overdue with some reviews, but I promise I will get to them next week, and the week after next one.

Maybe I haven’t been writing much, nor visiting blogs (that is also something I have and want to change), but I have been reading a lot.
Amanda from Chocolate Pages and I buddy read The Owl Always Hunts at Night and it was a good experience. We both liked the book, and had lots to discuss on a way.

I am now packing my bag and tomorrow I go on a short trip (4 days, family visits). After that I’ll go back to my obligations and old life.
I plan to schedule some posts today, because I don’t plan to bring laptop with me.
So until Friday, I will probably be MIA in blogosphere and on Twitter.
However, I will be (like always) active on Goodreads and will be checking my emails every day (on my phone).

 

Last week on Book Dust Magic:

Monday: I reviewed Lion in my Movie Monday post

Friday: I reviewed The Witchfinder’s Sister by Beth Underdown

 

Next week on Book Dust Magic:

Upcoming reviews:

annabel-lee the-fifth-letter

I also plan to post my February Wrap Up.

Book Haul:

In this haul I will show you books I collected during last three weeks.

For review:

paige-toon-arc I was the happiest girl alive when I received The Last Piece of My Heart by Paige Toon from Simon & Schuster UK. If you remember, this book was my WoW choice recently, and the day it came unsolicited I just couldn’t believe it.

the-runaway Lovely Rhoda Hardie from Lion Hudson sent me the debut novel called Runaway and the sequel to Annabel Lee, called The Raven. I plan to read The Raven soon while characters from the previous book are still fresh in my mind.

bella-the-rest Author Sheryl Browne sent me a physical copy of her novel The Rest of my Life. I am really looking forward to read it soon.

the-fifth-letter-arc I was very happy to receive this UK paperback edition of The Fifth Letter from Michael Joseph, Penguin. I already read it and it was good.

 

Purchased:

28062012140 About the Girl was the only book from Kelk’s Girl series that I didn’t have in my collection, so I bought it. I also wanted to suport croatian publishers so I purchased Big Magic in my own language.

allegedly by-your-side collide the-transcend-saga I got myself some ebooks of books I didn’t want to miss. There was also a great deal from Michelle Madow, so as a thank you for pre-ordering her newest book Collode, I got the whole The Transcend Time Saga for free.

Currently Reading:

by-your-side This weekend I’m reading By Your Side by Kasie West. I am only 9 chapters in and, even though the writing style is great, I hope the story will become more interesting then it is now.

 

That is it!

Hi guys!

I hope you’re having a lovely Sunday!

This week was pretty slow and monotonous for me.
Except meeting some friends and family, not much was going on.
I was more active on my Goodreads group then in blogosphere. February challenge started and right now my reading team is placed first, which is great, especially considering that me and my January team were placed very last in January challenge.

My review for Split movie grabbed more attention on twitter then I expected. I was criticized for supporting it, and for writing in my review that the main character is schizophrenic.
Since then I learned more about DID, and I added a note about that as an addition to my review.

 

Last week on Book Dust Magic:

Monday: I reviewed Split in my Movie Monday post

Wednesday: I reviewed White Lies & Wishes by Cathy Bramley 

Thursday: I talked about my reading/blogging plans for 2017

Saturday: I reviewed Alabester: What is Most Precious is Also Most Fragile by Chris Aslan

 

Next week on Book Dust Magic:

Upcoming reviews:

books: freeks annabel-lee

I also plan to post my January wrap-up and tell you what book I can’t wait to be released in my WoW post.

Book Haul:

For review:

learning-to-love Author Sheryl Browne contacted me and asked me if I’d like to give her book Learning to Love a chance, and I gladly agreed.

the-mesmerist I was so happy when I saw that my wish (that I requested last year in October) on Netgalley was granted. The only obsatcle is that it can not be send to kindle app, so I’ll have to read it on my computer.

freeks I can’t even tell you how excited I was to get this beautiful edition of Freeks by Amanda Hocking from Tor Books HQ, Pan

paris-for-one Paris for One was such a lovely surprise. Wonderful team from Penguin, Michael Joseph sent it unsolicited.

It has been forever since the last time I posted Weekly Wrap Up.
The thing is, I was on “blogging vacation” for a very long time, and got back to blogging last week, but I only posted few posts, so I didn’t feel like Weekly Wrap Up was neccessary.

This week, however, I posted more, so I decided to get back to posting on Sundays.

It’s really great to be back and I am really looking forward to blog in 2017.
I am already planning my blogging schedule and I can say I really missed being a part of blogosphere.

Last week on Book Dust Magic:

Tuesday: I took a part in blog tour for The Secret Life of Lucy Lovecake and reviewed it. 

Thursday: I reviewed My Sweet Revenge by Jane Fallon. 

Saturday: I reviewed The Good Girlfriend’s Guide to Getting Even by Anna Bell.

 

Next week on Book Dust Magic:

Upcoming reviews: 

movies: split

books: white-lies-and-wishes-blue chris-aslan

I also plan to talk about my reading/blogging plan for 2017.

This week wasn’t my best, when it comes to blogging.
I kind of disappeared after Thursday and, since I haven’t scheduled posts that supposed to go live on Friday and Saturday, they never made it.
However, they will go live the week after this next one (that is already planned).
This whole situation made me learn a valuable lesson: always schedule your blog posts!

Other then that, this week was somewhat interesting.
I buddy read A List of Cages with my friend Jasmine from How Useful It Is. We both loved it and our reviews should go live this Tuesday.

Also, my Nook (e-reader) chrashed and now I have to read my ebooks on my phone, and let me tell you, I don’t like it. It’s been only few days, but I already miss my e-ink screen.
I plan to read ebooks I already got for review, but I don’t plan to request any books from Netgalley from now own (the only exception will be Sophie Kinsella’s new book in UK edition, if it ever shows up on Netgalley).

I plan to buy myelf a new ereader (probaby Nook again), but I don’t think that will happen too soon.

Last week on Book Dust Magic:

Monday: I talked about movie called Nine Lives, in my Movie Monday post

Wednesday: I talked about By Your Side in my WoW post

Thursday: I reviewed The Empire State Cat’s Christmas Gift by Nic Tatano

 

Next week on Book Dust Magic:

Upcoming reviews:

movies: definitely-maybe

books: a-list-of-cages chocolate-lovers-christmas miracle-in-a-museum

I also plan to talk about beautiful Christmas Covers and there will be a new giveaway going on Wednesday.
