Sunday Shout Out (3)

Recently, I introduced a new feature here at In the Hammock on Sundays. It's called "Sunday Shout Out" and it's a place where I can give a special shout out to those publishers and authors who have sent me books over the week, as well as those bloggers who have hosted contests that I've won! I'll also be giving shout outs to any other cool books, blogs or bookish news that I've spotted during the week.

Check out my first Sunday Shout Out post for even more info, here!

Books for Review
"Transcendence" by CJ Omololu

This one was just my WOW pick a week or so ago, I'm so excited!

"Dead Reckoning" by Mercedes Lackey and Rosemary Edghill

Zombies in YA! Yay!

"The Girls' Ghost Hunting Guide" by Stacey Graham

This book looks so fun!

 "Tempest Unleashed" by Tracy Deebs

I loved the first book in this series, so I've been waiting to read this one!

"Sirenz" by Charlotte Bennardo and Natalie Zaman

I've heard a lot about this one, I'm so excited to read it!
Contest Wins
"The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook" by Emily Ansara Baines

Won from Bingo at Bookin' with Bingo!

Gotta Have It
Now for the book I just found this week, that I must have now!!!

"The Kitchen Counter Cooking School" by Kathleen Flinn

 I first saw this book featured on another blog, Love Laughter and  Touch of Insanity, and she really convinced me that this is something I need to read. I'm trying to do more cooking and lots more healthy cooking, and it sounds like this book has many useful tips for the kitchen!

Book News

This past week was Children's Book Week! Did anyone participate in any fun events at your school or library? Or maybe you participated in another way!

Did you know this event has been going on since 1919?? That's fantastic! Here are some posters from Children's Book Weeks in the past:

These and more posters found at The Art of Children's Picture Books and Childscapes
Check out the main Children's Book Week site here.

If you would like to do your own Sunday Shout out, please link back to this post, and leave your link in the comments section this weekend so I can check it out, and so that other readers can stop by too!!
