The Sunday Post meme is created by Kim the Caffeinated Book ReviewerIt's 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 on our blog for the week ahead.

The Sunday Post

Last weekend I went to the Bay Area Book Festival in Berkeley, California. I had the chance to meet up with book blogger, Kathy, from My Nook, Books and More. On day 1 we had a blast getting to know YA authors such as:

Amy Spalding (Kissing Ted Callahan)
Suzanne Young (The Program Series)
Valerie Tejeda (Hollywood Witch Hunter)
Jenny Han (To All the Boys I've Loved Before)
Lauren Oliver (Vanishing Girls)

On Day 2, I had the chance to see...

Kim Culbertson (Catch a Falling Star)
Morgan Matson (Since You've Been Gone)
Virginia Boeker (The Witch Hunter)

Before heading to the Flaunt that Romance--Don't Hide It! romance panel consisting of local Avon Romance authors Julie Anne Long, T.J. Kline, and Jennifer Ryan. Aren't they adorable here?



I met Jennifer Ryan last year at Avon KissCon San Rafael. At the time I had not read any of her books, and it's always hard to think of something to say when you haven't read an author's work before. This time I had read both At Wolf Ranch & When It's Right and was able to chat with Jennifer a bit about my love for her Montana Men series! In fact, since no one was behind me at the signing table at the time I was there, I was able to talk to these lovely ladies quite a bit, which absolutely made my day!

Overall, I'm glad I went to this book festival. It was a delight meeting Kathy, seeing all these wonderful authors, and seeing so much love for books of all genres. It was the first time this event was held in the Bay Area, and I hope it happens again soon!


When I went to see Jurassic World on Friday, this movie trailer was shown:

It's about a military dog, and the movie looks good! I might need to bring tissues when I see it. Releases June 26, 2015 in the US.

I will recap the past two weeks.
