Sunday Post (18) / In My Mailbox (22)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Ahoy,

It’s Canada Day long weekend! Yay! I’m stuck working all weekend (boo!) but at least it’s not raining anymore (it’s been raining almost exclusively  on weekends for the last month) so I’m trying to enjoy the sunshine anyways!

Hope all my fellow Canadians have a wonderful and safe celebration! HAPPY CANADA DAY!

Love Overdue - Pamela Morsi(01) Love Overdue by Pamela Morsi

Meet Dorothy Jarrod: devotedly unsexy librarian

Buttoned-up book lover DJ is all sensible shoes, drab skirts and studious glasses. After an ill-advised spring-break-fueled fling left her mortified, she’s committed to her prim and proper look. When she’s hired by a rural library in middle-of-nowhere Kansas, she finally has the lifestyle to match-and she can’t wait to get her admin on.

But it’s clear from day one that the small-town library is more interested in circulating rumors than books. DJ has to organize her unloved library, win over oddball employees and avoid her flamboyant landlady’s attempts to set her up with the town pharmacist. Especially that last part-because it turns out handsome Scott Sanderson is her old vacation fling! She is not sure whether to be relieved or offended when he doesn’t seem to recognize her. But with every meeting, DJ finds herself secretly wondering what it would be like to take off her glasses, unpin her bun and reveal the inner vixen she’s been hiding from everyone-including herself.

This sounds and looks so cute! I mean look at the cover! Admittedly the cover looks more YA style than New Adult but still, it’s adorbs. Can’t wait to start this guy!

Creeps - Darren Hynes(02) Creeps by Darren Hynes

Fifteen-year-old Wayne Pumphrey wishes he were courageous enough to actually send the heartfelt letters he writes to friends and family. He also wishes his father would drive on the right side of the street, his mother would stop packing her suitcase to leave, and his sister would stop listening to Nickelback. But most of all, he wishes that Pete “The Meat” would let him walk to school in peace. After all, how many times can one person eat yellow snow?

Then one morning, while facing Pete and his posse, Wayne is rescued by Marjorie, the girl with a dead father and a mother who might as well be. Together, the two of them escape Pete’s relentless bullying by rehearsing for the school play, and an unlikely friendship is formed. As they grow ever closer to one another, they begin to dream of escape from their small town and restricted lives. But Pete now has plans for both of them—and after a moment of sudden violence, nothing will ever be the same again for Wayne, Marjorie, or Pete himself.

Won this guy on the Goodreads giveaway and it sounds like it’ll be quite the poignant read. I’m just hoping for some heartwarming moments and a happy ending.

  2. Oh my gosh, Long Overdue looks so cute. I’m a librarian, so I love when books have librarians as main characters. Although I do get sick of the prim, glasses wearing unsexy librarian stereotype. Nonetheless, I want to read that one.

    Enjoy and happy reading!

  3. Happy Canada Day! Hope you have a great day and enjoy your new books.

  4. Happy Canada Day! I love the cover of Long Overdue and the pun on library books..cute. Have a wonderful week! The Sunday Post

  5. I’ve heard nothing but my great things about Long Overdue! I should definitely check that one out! Happy reading!
