Sunday Post #12- US Virtual Road Trip This Summer!

The Sunday Post

The Sunday Post was created by Caffeniated Book Reviewerthis is a post where we recap on the going on's on the blog the week previous and the week coming up as well as the awesome books we have received, bought or been gifted for review!

I am back with a Sunday Post. I took two weeks of blogging and it felt great but now am excited to get back into it. I was off work for 10 days over Easter and I thought I would take a break from every thing "work related"as blogging takes a lot of my time. I think it's good to take a break once in a while. I think I am going to make Easter a annual blog break for me.



Now talking about breaks I usually take a summer blog break as well but not this year as I have been organizing a VIRTUAL U.S. Road Trip on my blog to run July/August this year. Anyone who know me, knows the U.S. is my top place to visit. Until then I am having a virtual road trip to every state and need a representative from every state to tell me places I can visit, eat, authors who are from that state, quirky things from their state etc.

I am looking for a book blogger or author to represent their state, if you are interested in helping me with this project, check here to see if your state is available for a representative and send me an email. I am really looking forward to this project but I need your help to make it work!


On to the books, because I haven't done a Sunday Post in a few weeks I have like twenty million books to show you because of that I am only going to show you books I bought and got for review. I have way too many new Kindle books I downloaded for Free and got though the Spring Fling. I would be here till next year trying to find them all!

Received for review


I received an ebook of Finding Thor from the author for an honest review.


The enchanted Rose is for a blog tour in May VIA Xpresso Book Tours (eBook)


The Faerie Tree was an automatic download from Netgalley it releases April 28th

Pre Order on Book Depository


Alive is a June 9th release VIA Disney Hyperion (Netgalley)

Pre Order on Book Depository


Delicate monsters is a June 9th release VIA St Martin's Press (Netgalley)

Pre Order on Book Depository


The IT girl is a May 7th release from Egmont Publishing. I did get this on netgalley a few weeks ago but for some reason I got sent the paperback as well. I will most likely read the paperback.

Pre Order on Book Depository


VIA Bookfish books on netgalley (this book is already released)

Bought Paperback/hardbacks


I picked this up for £1.99/$2.91 brand new in a UK book shop called The Works, they have an online store as well. This sounds intriguing about an internet chat room and this girl agreeing to be this other person for a few months. You can get it on the works website here.


This edition is only £3.98 on Book Depository

My name is Megan and I have never read a John Green book. Yes, it's true, I have The Fault in our stars but I just haven't read it. But I saw the trailer for Paper towns and it looks so good. So I had to pick up the book. I will read it before seeing the movie this summer! If you haven't seen the trailer (the whole blogging world probably has) go see it now!


I read To Kill a mockingbird in high school and loved it. But I never owned a copy. So I thought it was about time I did. It was hard to pick an edition but I picked the 50th Anniversary edition. It was only £3.91 (paperback) on Book Depository


I have been wanting to read this book for ages. Everyone seems to love it but after reading Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer's, review a while back, you can check it out here , I wanted to read it even more. I listened to an audio book clip on Kimberly's blog and was going to get the audio but I got the hardback instead for £7/$10 from Asda which I think is a bargin!


I have been wanting to read this forever. The movie just came out in the UK. I did have an ARC of this from years ago but my sister took my copy so I had to buy a copy.

Reading Away The Days is now affiliated with Book Depository please consider using my link to purchase/ pre order a book, I get a tiny percentage for every book bought though my link. All Books above that are linked to Book Depository contain my affiliate link. ALL money gained goes back into giveaways on my blog.

  2. I have Paper Towns on my Kindle, but haven't read it yet...and only read one other book of his, The Fault in Our Stars. I should read Paper Towns soon.

    I loved To Kill a Mockingbird, but didn't read it until a couple of years ago. I have a hard cover copy, though, which I enjoy.

    Have a great week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  3. Your virtual road trip sounds fun! If you need someone to represent Alabama let me know! It's kind of funny because Ireland is at the top of my list of places to visit. Girl on the Train is definitely on my TBR. I look forward to seeing what you think!
