Thanks to Vicky for creating this meme and encouraging participants. Meet Me At The Cupcake Cafe | Starcrossed | Breverton’s Phantasmagoria | Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore | The Magicians This past week I loaded up at my library visit with some titles I’ve been meaning to read for a while, and some newer items recommended by co-workers. When you work around a million or more books, there’s always something to catch your eye! 1. Meet Me At The Cupcake Cafe This seemed like a really cute book and it’s one I’ve been meaning to read for a while.  I can’t cook to save my life but I do love food and a food-based romance sounds like a sweet treat to me. 2.

Showcase Sunday: An Overview of the Feature

  Showcase Sunday is an original feature/meme hosted by Vicky @ Books, Biscuits and Tea. ~ Showcase Sunday is designed to share your latest reads received from reviewing, libraries, book shops, and other sources. Thanks to Vicky for creating this meme and encouraging participants. Last year I started blogging on Sundays as an alternative to the “In My Mailbox” and “Stacking the Shelves” memes floating around the internet, and began participating in Kimba’s meme, “The Sunday Post”.  You can still find these archived under the tag The Sunday Post. It’s spring here in the Midwest and I’m sprucing up the website with new banners and a new look.  It goes to follow that I am going to try out new features and see what takes (and what doesn’t), so I’m replacing The Sunday Post with Showcase Sunday.
