A Sunday Retrospective (15)

A Sunday Retrospective is inspired by In My Mailbox at The Story Siren and TGIF at GReads!, where I share the books that I've acquired during the week, last week's posts and interesting links.

Hi guys! I haven't been able to post one of these for a while, mostly because while I was on vacation in the Philippines, I didn't have access to a computer, nor did I feel like blogging all that much. But now I'm back in New York, and back to blogging and more excited than ever to share all the awesome stuff that popped up on the web, cool things in my mailbox and the posts that have gone up in my absence. (Warning: I may have included an excessive amount of links!)

Wrap-Up Post



  1. I love the cover for Burning Blue - not one that's easy to forget.

    Great list of links, I'm off to check them out.

    Enjoy :-D

    1. Isn't it just eye-catching? I was a little scared of it initially, but I think it's very striking.

  2. Thanks for all the links! Been reading some interesting posts because of it :D And thank you for the link back to mine :)

    Also, did you have fun in the Phillipines? :D

  3. Love the links-I've seen a few before (like the floral arrangements) but a lot are new and very interesting looking! I love having more reading :)

  4. I love this feature so much! I need to start stopping by more often on Sundays! Hope you enjoyed the Philippines! (that sounds like SO MUCH FUN!)
