Sunday Post #50
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
This week was a pretty good week, summer is officially here and I even got to read once or twice. The World Cup is in full swing and the U.S. got off to a good start.
COYER starts today and should be a lot of fun! Check out Michelle's starter post here for details, as well as info about the readathons and Twitter fun and giveaways. Big shout out to Michelle at Because Reading Is Better Than Real Life and Berls at Fantasy Is More Fun.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by last week and commented on my re-posts. It's been fun and I still have a few older reviews to share, so I'm going to post a few every once in a while. Someone suggested that I do that semi- regularly and I liked that idea! I'll post a couple this week along with everything else going on.
Happy first day of summer!

AROUND THE BLOGOSPHERE
Michelle at In Libris Veritas is celebrating her blogoversary with some fun stuff- go check out her Summer Solstice celebration. She's got giveaways and lots of author features as well.
Speaking of Avengers- lots of exciting news on the movie front. Here's a look at the filming, with Cap, Thor and Stark. Also lots of info here, including a look at Avengers Tower and news of a new costume for Black Widow. This movie seems to be really shaping up...
George RR Martin was at ConCarolinas and read from the upcoming World of Ice and Fire book. The excerpt he read is a history of the Westerlands. Quite interesting.
Also quite good- a GRRM Q&A from ConCarolinas over at Stacey Simms blog. Check it out! The big takeaway for me- Martin says there will be more flashbacks to Robert's Rebellion in the next two books, and by the end of the series we'll know everything that happened there. That could be interesting... And here's an interview with Martin where he discusses the Season 4 finale...
World Cup time! The U.S. had a big win last week and here are U.S. fans going crazy at Copacabana beach in Brazil. Looks like fun. Go U.S.!!!
