The Sunday Post #1 - Book haul & blog news

This week was a crazy busy week! I decided it would be the perfect fit to try out a new meme.
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. 
This week was a week of firsts for me on Dee's Reads. My very first author interview and my first Waiting on Wednesday post! It's been a crazy busy week..I could hardly keep up! ^_^

Monday: My very FIRST Author interview with Tanya J. Peterson. She wrote the novel Leave of Absence. I also shared my review of this very emotional read.

Tuesday: Evertaster's Blog Tour Blast It's a crazy silly soundinstory I just had to share with you guys! Includes a tour-wide giveaway.
 - I also announced the winner of the Best Book Ever Giveaway Hop from last week! :party

Books I Bought:

A Great and Terrible Beauty (Gemma Doyle, #1)Fallen (Fallen, #1)Artemis Fowl (Artemis Fowl, #1)Across the Universe (Across the Universe, #1)Fiendish Deeds (Joy of Spooking, #1)

Books received for Review:
I can't share the details too much but I received the books (4) I will be reading and judging for the RONE awards! I certainly have my work cut out for me the next several weeks! I cannot write reviews for these or share the scores so if you see books on my currently reading list don't expect them to have a review (If they do it's because they are the books I chose to read for fun :D).
The Athena Effect (The Athena Effect, #1)
Besides that I got my last ebook review filled for 2013; The Athena Effect. I'm not longer accepting reviews for 2013. :( The exception is i am still taking requests for paperback/physical copies..but only a few more for this year. It's crazy how fast the year filled up and how long my list is for reviewing! I'm considering what to do for next year as far as scheduling reviews. I did pick up a few blog tours with review spots--enough to keep me more than busy! ^_^

Books I Won:

Castles in the Sand by E.M. TippetsCastles on the Sand (Shattered Castles, #1)
