The Sunday Post AKA What’s On My (Mostly Virtual) Nightstand 12-29-13

Sunday Post

Last weekend was a little too wild. When the movers left Saturday night, we were in the middle of an absolute sea of boxes. I think I was completely shell-shocked last Sunday. I’m so thankful that Cass stepped in and took over the beginning of the week.

Cass also contributed to Monday’s upcoming Best of 2013 and Tuesday’s Most Anticipated of 2014 lists. She gave just the reason I was begging for to have 13 books in the 2013 list and 14 books in the 2014 list. Now that’s what friends are for–an excuse to overindulge when you really, really need one.

I also posted my Best Ebook Romances of 2013 list on Friday to recap the annual article from Library Journal.

Recapping the year is always fun. It’s great to take a look back at the books that were so awesome. But then, there are always the ones that got away. And there are so many bright shiny new ones coming soon!
