Sunday Post

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, Bought, Borrowed & Bagged, and Stacking the Shelves.

This week was fun.  It was my birthday and Valentine's Day!! Actually... my husband and I share the SAME birthday too.  I got a few bookish and geeky gifts.  Super fun.  My husband got me a fabulous Super Hero cake, he bought me the Postertext print... that feature an entire book on a poster, I bought him some Frostbeard Candles , my mom and dad also sent a wonderful cake from Berries.com.  Here is the Alice in Wonderland poster:




On the blog:

I have an amazing time watching the Lego Movie!
I review Fangirl by Rainbow Rowel.
I chat about star reviews and what you think about them.
I participated in the Valentine's Day card exchange with other book bloggers hosted by Fighting Dreamer.  The bloggers were revealed who sent out the cards too!  Love mine so much. My card came from Thao @ Paper Bunny.   She included stickers and even some cute art!!  This was sooo fun I hope to do it again next year.



What I found on the blogspere:
Rinn Reads talks about   Video Games and why we love them .... if you follow this blog you know I review games on here all the time!
Have you seen these Disney cocktails???  I can't wait to try to make one!
Chrisbookarama talks about swearing in your blog... do you do it or avoid it?
Instalove 101 kicks off this week at A Novel Idea... be sure to check out all the posts all week long. 


Internet:
This should get you excited for Game of Thrones even more!



Books, Books, Books:
I received 20000 Leagues Under the Sea for my Project Disney next week,  and I am finally finishing up Champion by Marie Lu.  I also have several graphic novels I must get read.. including Before Watchmen which I have been looking forward to for a long time!!

    Oh nice! Happy Birthday!! What an awesome cake! And I love that poster! Seen those around through other bloggers mentioning them and they are so awesome looking! My walls are already covered with movie posters, some framed photos and then there's my bookshelves that take up wall space. I've pretty much ran out of room for anything else!

    Hope you have a good reading week this week!

    Here's my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

  13. Happy birthday Angie!! That superhero cake is seriously awesome! And I'm jealous you got to see the Lego movie. I think it looks so cute but hub doesn't agree so we saw alone Survivor instead. Was still very good...just different from a fun loving movie.

    Hope you have a great week!

  22. Thank you!!! The Superhero cake totally took me by surprise. I always see them on Pinterest so I have been wanting one for a while now. I actually had been thinking of getting him some cupcakes through the years and just never did it.

    ReplyDelete
  23. It is a great and fun movie. I would pay to see it again actually.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Happy Belated Birthday, Angie!! OMG. That cake is AWESOME! Bat signal!! And the Alice in Wonderland poster is just pure perfection.

  25. Thank!! I cannot wait for Game of Thrones... it just needs to be April. Then after this season I'll be behind on the books sooooooo... guess it'll all be a surprise from there. I refuse to keep reading until the whole series is out.

    ReplyDelete
  26. The card exchange was fun. I like that is was a surprise who had you! I had an international blogger so I only sent a card because I had NO idea how much it would cost to send my card and it was only $1! LOL! So next year if I get an international blogger I will send like a bookmark with it or something.

  27. The candles are really neat. There are all kinds of smells... libraries, books!! Just really neat. I can't wait to smell one but my husband hasn't lit them yet and I don't want to just take over his gift. LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thank you!! I can't wait to get the Alice poster framed!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I think I am going to hang that poster in the bathroom. I know... you are probably like BATHROOM! But I like to have cute and fun bathroom decorations. Maybe while people are going they can read the book on the poster! LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Well... anything with Mark Wahlberg in it is going to be fabulous!! HELLO!!! I have been watching the show Wahlbergers which has been fun. I have loved Donnie Wahlberg my whole LIFE. I even went to the New Kids on the Block concert last year which was the time of my life!!

  31. I ended up freezing A LOT of the cake. Which is kind of nice because then we can just take out a little bit at a time. Thanks for the birthday wishes.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love February.. and birthdays makes it even more special. So Happy Birthday to you too!! I think it's kind of fun to have a birthday close to Valentine's Day.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I know... the candles are fabulous! There was even a little note to me on the box thanking me for ordering them. I love some of the items I find on Etsy. So unique compared to what we find in the stores. More personal. You must order a candle!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thank you!!! The cake was so good. But it's a big cake so I had to freeze a lot of it.

    ReplyDelete

  37. Fangirl is such a good book. I was pleasantly surprised!! It makes me want to read the rest of Rowell's books.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I want the Disney cocktails too. I would really like to make them all but the cost of all that different liquor would be through the roof!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Haha yes. Maybe we should go to a bar and ask the bartender to make them. :DD

    ReplyDelete

  53. These candles are really cool. Such a variety too for book lovers. I don't really care myself if they are soy or not but just the themes and the look of the candles are fun.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I went shopping today for a frame. I am going to just get a cheaper frame from target and paint it. There was one at target for $20 and I'll paint the outside a pretty color since the print is just black and white.
