This post will now occasionally include a section with News. Otherwise it was a fairly boring week for the blog since I over committed myself elsewhere.
The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba @Caffeinated Book Reviewer, is a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
Caution: Her site has sidebar ads that sometimes contain cover images which may be offensive to some.
I had considered creating a weekly Audiobook/SFF News post, but it just wasn't coming together for me. So for now, I will simply include an extra section in this post when there's something to say.
Does Sunday night / Monday morning stress you out. I love this article on How to Make Your Weeks Feel More Like the Weekend. Even if not all the tips apply, the concept of identifying what you love and finding small ways to replicate it can apply to anyone. (Thanks to Alexa Loves Books for the link.)

- "Cross-Posting Reviews: Where, When, and Why To Do It" by Kortni Reads
"But reviews being put up on retail sites and Goodreads can help out the author a lot, especially if they’re an indie or self-published author and don’t benefit from all the marketing and publicity from a big publisher. By posting your reviews on other websites, you’re making your review more accessible to potential readers/buyers."
- "Your Body Is Not Your Confession" by Carlie @ The Book Smugglers
"I like stories that deal with the problems overweight people face, but I don’t want those to be the only stories fat people are allowed to have. I want stories were weight doesn’t come up at all, where fat people, especially fat women, can be cops or superheroes or love interests or soldiers or princesses or anything else we generally only allow thin people to be."
