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.


Last week on The Bawdy Book Blog

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Sunday Post post.  I’ve been busy with vacations, work has left me exhausted finalizing a project that is FINALLY completed and frankly, I’ve just been lazy.  So let me catch you up on all the cool things happening.

Coming up this week?

  • Hopefully Jennifer will get around to writing a review of Crossroads by J.J. Bonds
  • Teaser Tuesday
  • Maybe a review of MILA 2.0
  • A post for Kimba’s Take Control of Your TBR Pile Challenge
  • A vacation picture dump! I went to Charleston!
  • Indie Author Excerpts


Book Haulin’!

I got $50 in B&N giftcards recently (for my birthday in January and Valentine’s Day) therefore, I HAVE BOUGHT THINGS.  I also attended a really great book signing with the lovely Steph from Cuddlebuggery.  I have a funny story about that, and pictures.  But first, books!


"Delirium Stories by Lauren Oliver"
"Prodigy by Marie Lu"
"Sever by Lauren DeStefano"


"Spellcaster by Claudia Gray"
"Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi"


I also received a hardback version of Requiem by Lauren Oliver!

The Story of How Jennifer Met Some Authors

So, a funny story about these next pictures.  A couple of months ago, Steph from Cuddlebuggery asked if I was going to a signing at Hooray for Books (this cute little place near DC).  I count on Steph for pretty much all my book signing and author-meet-up 411, so I said of course I’d go.

And then I forgot about it.

I got a tweet from Lenore Applehans asking if I’d be there, which confused me, because I had no idea what signing she was talking about.  It took some sleuthing (read: tweeting Steph) to figure it out.  I then, of course, said yes (after canceling a women’s conference registration I had signed up for at work – priorities!).  Lenore wanted to do a fun blogger meet-up pre-signing (she is a book blogger as well as an author!) so she sent the info and we agreed to meet about 90 minutes before the signing start time.

On the day of the signing, I grabbed my ARC of Asunder by Jodi Meadows (who was going to be at the signing, along with Meagan Spooner and Megan Shepherd), and waited at the coffee shop for Lenore.  As Lenore walked in, two women followed behind her, and one of them looked down at Asunder in my lap and said, “Hi!  I’m Jodi Meadows.  And that’s my book.”

Then we all sat down for about 30-45 minutes (until they kicked us out), chatting about books, work and how books get named.

And that’s the story of how I met Lenore Applehans, Meagan Spooner and Jodi Meadows.

  1. OMG I love all the signed books, i am kinda frustrated that the Oliver novellas are packaged, i own the first two and only want to by book three..grr. So glad your project is over and quit being lazy and link up more woman! {{hugs}}The Sunday Post

    • I know, I know! This is my first weekend home in three weeks, and before that, it was all project, project, project, project at work. I had the energy for the bare minimum here on the blog, just enough to keep it going. I finally have time now! \nMaybe we can do a book swap at some point so you can read the last Oliver novella. I haven’t read any of them yet.

      I didn’t realize they were packaged either. I haven’t read any of them yet so I might just have to get that!

  2. How freaking cool is that? I haven’t been to a signing or any author function, yet 🙁 BUT, I will be attending one in a few weeks and CANNOT WAIT! Glad you had a blast, and enjoy all those great books–>I really want Spellcaster! Peace out!
