My Sunday News [Blog Hops] for 1.20.13

Welcome to THE SUNDAY POST... it is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. 
It's a chance for me to share what I'm currently reading & any news for the upcoming week.


to SUNDAYS IN BED WITH... Meme started by Kate @ Midnight Book Girl, where I share what book is currently on my Kindle and I'm curled up with (or, as in my case, what book I wish I had time to spend reading, after church and getting everything ready for the week! Not that I have 2 kids and a husband or anything. LOL!) I think maybe I need to name this meme "Sundays Where My Kindle Is Laying On My Bed Where I Wish A Was"....  LOL!! Anywho... I am currently reading Stitch (Stitch Trilogy #1) by Samantha Durante for Blog Tour. If you haven't read it DO IT! I'm loving it. I have never read anything like it.

Here's the summary from Goodreads...

Stitch (Stitch Trilogy #1)
by Samantha Durante
Paperback, 314 pages
Published August 1st 2012 by Samantha Durante

Summary Goodreads
Her heart races, her muscles coil, and every impulse in Alessa's body screams at her to run... but yet she's powerless to move.

Still struggling to find her footing after the sudden death of her parents, the last thing college freshman Alessa has the strength to deal with is the inexplicable visceral pull drawing her to a handsome ghostly presence. In between grappling with exams and sorority soirees - and disturbing recurring dreams of being captive in a futuristic prison hell - Alessa is determined to unravel the mystery of the apparition who leaves her breathless. But the terrifying secret she uncovers will find her groping desperately through her nightmares for answers.

Because what Alessa hasn't figured out yet is that she's not really a student, the object of her obsession is no ghost, and her sneaking suspicions that something sinister is lurking behind the walls of her university's idyllic campus are only just scratching the surface...

The opening installment in a twist-laden trilogy, Stitch spans the genres of paranormal romance and dystopian sci-fi to explore the challenges of a society in transition, where morality, vision, and pragmatism collide leaving the average citizen to suffer the results.

This past week I finished up Jack Templar Monster Hunter and started Stitch. Review for Jack will be posted Feb. 4th so check back then. I'm still reading it with my son and he absolutely loves it. I reviewed a great children's bilingual book called  Escucha Means Listen by Talia Aikens-Nuñez. And I had lots of Cover Reveals this week with some really gorgeous covers. Go HERE to check them out.

My "Dreaming of Books Giveaway Hop" began on Thursday. Win the book of your dreams HERE!!

And like every Sunday I would have loved to stay in bed and read all day, but life is waiting outside my door and the dishes, laundry, lesson plans, and my family don't take care of themselves.... :)

Thanks for stopping by! Say hi and let me know what your plans are this week in a comment or leave me your link!! :D

See you next Sunday! :D
