Sunday Post #8



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 I was featured on The Attic's blogger interview feature Behind the Blogger. The interview is here. I was really excited to do this and share a little of myself with all the bloggy people out there. I'm the third interview she's done and I will be checking back each week to see who she interviews next. A big thank you to Caroline for that. Check it out!

No reviews this week, although I did make progress on several of my reads. The big news for me was changing my blog name and address. I started out blogging under my name but quickly realized I wasn't happy with that, and it just made sense to make a change. I had several names I kinda liked but settled on Book Haven- after all that's what I want this to be. A place where I (and hopefully others) can go and talk about the latest book, movie or whatever. A haven of sorts...

Thanks to anyone inconvenienced at all by my moving things around for sticking it out.

Now for some news from around the blogosphere.

The Divergent teaser is here. All 12 seconds of it. Whatcha all think?

Over at tor.com there is an interesting review of Fangirl. This actually made me want to read it, I'm kinda jumping on the bandwagon for this one. Beware there are some spoilers.

Award- winning SF/ fantasy artist Michael Whelan has a Tumblr blog now, with a LOT of beautiful images. Whelan is of course a legend in SF/ F illustration and you can see why here, chances are if you read science fiction or fantasy you've seen his stuff. Find it here. And enjoy the images.

Also io9 did a feature and interview with Whelan, including some art he's doing for indie book series The Mutant Hunters.That feature is here.




That's it for my week. How was yours?

  3. Congrats on the interview! I've not read the series yet, so I think I'll wait before I see teasers from the movie.

  5. I like the look of your new blog here. I also went and read the interview about you--and love that Tolkien quote (my husband and I are huge LOTR fans). Looking forward to more good reviews from you. I read Divergent (not sure how the movie will be, but will probably go see it).

  6. Sadly the Divergent trailer didn't really phase me at all. I loved the books but I didn't get chills like I normally do when I see a movie trailer for an awesome book. Congrats on the interview!
