Sunday Shout Out (8)

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!

Book News

This won't be 'new' news to many of you, but just in case you haven't seen it yet, Entertainment Weekly features the first pics of Renesme from Twilight on this week's cover! I was excited to see this for sure! also has more pics on their site and in the magazine.

Also, has anyone actually seen the version of the cover with Jacob? I got the original version in the mail, and it didn't say anything about collecting more covers. I want the Jacob cover!

These pics and more found at Entertainment Weekly here: EW

I have a new contest going on right now! 

If you would like to do your own Sunday Shout out, please add the button that links back to this post, and leave your link in the linky section this weekend so I can check it out, and so that other readers can stop by too!! Please remember to add the button so we can get the word out about the event!

  14. Every time I see RE and Jacob together and I am just so freaking creeped out

  15. Enjoy all of your books- they all look really good. Thanks for sharing the Twilight/EW covers- I had no idea. I must be out of the loop!

  16. I am not really aware of most of these books but Changeling looks like an interesting read!

  17. I love the variety of your books! Have a great week :-D

  18. Very nice selection of books. You have some books I've never heard. Thanks for visiting me as well.


  19. Great haul. Love the Sara Luck covers. I wouldn't mind getting one of those, lol!

    Thanks for stopping by.

  20. Nice haul! Haven't heard of Changeling, but I love Kelly Meding so need to order a copy! Happy reading!

    Here are my books.

  21. I hadn't seen the cover with Jacob so thanks for sharing lol. I wasn't really excited for this movie until I saw this. Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday =)

  22. The issue of EW that I got in the mail was the one with Jacob on the cover. The article was really good- I'm looking forward to seeing the movie in November.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  23. I really like the magazine cover- I'm probably the last person to see it! Although is it just me or are K-Stew and R-Pattz starting to look like brother and sister!? Scarily similar. x

  24. Awesome haul, so many cowboy books :D Also, Renesmee is so adorable! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  25. That's a lot of romance reads. I'd have to put a book cover on some of them, just so I don't get weird looks from people while sitting by the pool. As to the EW cover, I actually haven't been following the Twilight movies. I've seen the first and second one, and we laughed pretty much all the way through. I follow the 'it ruined the book for me' crowd with those movies. Still, great haul!

    Thanks for visiting my haul.


Thanks so much for your lovely comments!
