Sunday Post

Saturday, April 26, 2014
Let's chat about what's going on this week... on my blog.. on other blogs... on the internet... and just everywhere!    I link up my post to Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves.

On the Blog:
-I review and talk about Cinder by Marissa Meyer
-I declare that I am joining Bout of Books again!
-Comic Adventures Issue #9 is published.  This time I chat about Nightwing, Batman the Dark Knight, Jack of Fables and Supergirl.
-As you may have seen... I am currently in the middle of a 24 hour readathon!!  Dewey's Readathon is going on right now.  Update 1 , Update 2,  and my final Update 3.  Honestly this was a fun Readathon.  Lots of challenges throughout the events.  Lots of chat on twitter... I mean seriously it was fun.  Though I really didn't get reading done like a lot of people.


Around the Blogospere:
-If you have never checked out the Book Rat's Annual Fairy Tale Fortnight then you are missing out!  The even just started so be sure to check it out. 
-BEA Armchair still needs volunteers to help cheer everyone on who is participating.  If this is something you think you would have time for be sure to help out!
-I have been obsessed with instagram lately... well seeing books on there.  And YA Highway has a huge link of authors on there.
 


Internet:
Since I will be watching Spiderman 2 this week thought I would post this trailer to get us excited!


Books Books Books:

  1. I really want to see Spiderman 2 as well. I don't know if I'll have time this coming weekend with work and the end of my semester.

    I hope to read more of my own books soon as well. Trying to get caught up on some review titles...

  2. How good does Spiderman 2 look? I'm glad I ended up watching the first one even not being a big fan of Spiderman. Hope you enjoy the movie!

  3. I thought I would be reading more tonight with the 24 hour readathon but ... yeah that's not going to happen. But I did get several comics read so that is great!

  4. I am not a Spiderman fan either actually. But the movies are enjoyable enough. So I don't mind them entertaining me for a few hours.

  9. The readathon sounds fun! And some comics reviews- cool. Will be checking those out. SpiderMan 2 looks pretty good- Marvel has been doing good things lately with their movies. I can't believe that's coming out this week already!


    I'm going to have a hard time waiting a year for Avengers 2! :)

  10. I am excited for Spiderman 2! Andrew G. is a different kind of Spiderman, but I think he did well. i also like that Gwen Stacy is here!

  11. Readathon, that looks great ! I'm in the Locke and Key comics these days but my daughters are on vacation so I don't have much time to read. Have a great week ;)

  12. How come that all amazing read-a-thones are whenever I have tons to study or assignments to do. I really hope you'll enjoy Bout of Books. Great post, Angela :)

  14. Tanja, I like sleep way too much to participate in a 24-hour readathon! :)


    It's a movie trailer kind of week, Angela. I couldn't help but post the spectacularly creepy trailer for Gone Girl. It sends shivers up my spine every time I watch it.

  15. Looking forward to the challenge starting this week. Kind of dragging out my current read so I can jump into the challenge on Thursday!



    I am joining bout of books too looking forward to getting a HUGE jump on summer with all the reads this month.



    Hope you have a great week!

  16. I really want to read something by Joe Hill...and even though I am not participating in the Read-a-Thon, I am stopping by and cheering readers on.

    Armchair BEA is another event I enjoy.

    Here's

  17. Good luck with your RATs. Ugh, I need to read NOS4A2 really bad. I've never waited so long to read one of Hill's books.

  18. I own so many books I want to read, but I've also got a slew of ARCs to get through... so the ARC challenge is going to be great for me! Sounds like you've had a great week. I'm off to check out your 'Cinder' post!

  19. I can't believe Spiderman is coming out this week either. Wow. The start of summer movies. I am looking forward to the villains the most in the Spiderman movie.

    If you think the wait for Avengers 2 is long... Superman/Batman is 2016!!! WHAT!!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I am excited for it too.. I am still surprised that there was a new Spiderman franchise out so fast after the other one. Andrew G hasn't signed on for a third film yet so we'll see (probably a money thing).

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love love Locke and Key. If you have time look through my review archive. You can see my reviews.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Thanks... I had a ton of fun with the readathon.. though of course I didn't stay up for the 24 hours no matter how hard I tried.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I haven't watched the trailer for that movie because I want to read the book first... but with so many books on my TBR pile who knows if I will get it done before the movie comes out!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thank you... Spiderman does whatever a Spider can!

    ReplyDelete
  25. This is a great month for getting books read. I love Bout of Books and it would be fun to combine the ARC challenge with it. Good luck on everything!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have only read one book by Joe Hill and I loved it soooo much!!! I sometimes wish I didn't have other things to do... like TV/movies so I could just read constantly! LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I know... I need to read it too. Like yesterday.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I read a few ARCs during the Dewey readathon. They were graphic novels but I need to get them read and reviewed. So at least that is done.

    ReplyDelete
  29. glad you love Cinder! :D I've always wanted to join the 24 hr read-a-thon but I missed it :( I'm excited for Spiderman 2 too yay! :D

  30. I was just checking my comments on here when yours popped up! I usually miss the Dewey readathon but this year I was following their blog so I knew when it would happen!

    ReplyDelete
  31. You know I wasn't overly impressed with Spiderman 1 so probably won't see 2 in theaters. I'm looking forward to seeing a few movies this summer though.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think Spiderman is enjoyable ... a good time to go to a movie on a Friday night. I don't love Spiderman though. He is one of my least favorite superheroes.
