The Sunday Post #25: The One with My First GIF Review

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ 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.

So I normally don't do GIFs in my reviews because I'm not very creative and I don't really have the time to browse videos and create them but I read The Opportunist last week and that book was crazy so I had to include GIFs to help express just how I felt. It was kind of fun and I may use them again every once and a while.

Also, the 25 Days of Book Boyfriends, hosted by myself, Jessica @ Lovin Los Libros and Teresa @ Reader's Live a Thousand Lives is rolling strong so check out the schedule here and meet some amazing book BF's.

Featuring Melody Grace: Unwrapped Review & Holiday Playlist

There is a good chance this will change next week because I am crazy like that but as of now this is what I plan.


  1. Yikes I got Pieces for You too and I forgot to include it. Don't know how as I'm so looking forward to reading it! Do many of us have it, I'm sure CeCe and Wendy will also, so maybe we can do a buddy read? And I need to go back and update my Sunday post to include it!
    Your gif's were great, I was so busy going off to buy the book that I forgot to comment on them but I loved them.
    And I'm so happy you got The Gift and The Art of Letting Go. Hope you enjoy both as much as I did.
    Happy reading :)

  2. I loved the gifs you used! I don't use them often either but they are fun when I do :)

    Everyone picked up Bitter Sweet Love! Is it good?

  3. I am going to read your review with the gifs. I tend to use them in my discussion posts and they are fun. Sounds like you have a busy week ahead, and I love your haul this week. Enjoy :)

  4. I've never used gifs because I don't really know how, but I love seeing them in reviews. :)

  5. Hey nice review and I liked your use of the gifs. Those people sound crazy in that book. :) Those are fun reads when the characters are like a train wreck where you can't look away LOL.

    Have a good week!

  6. I haven't used gifs either, but I have a review coming up where I use one. Sometimes they express a feeling better than words. Enjoy your week :)

  7. I have to read this review! I meant to do it yesterday, but I have been supremely lazy and haven't wanted to do anything. (I haven't even finished my book for tomorrow yet. SIGH.) Anyways. YAY Unwrapped! Loved it! And crap! I forgot to put Pieces of You on my STS. I'll add it next week. YAY for BSL! I can't wait to find time to read that!

  8. Mikki and Ria are reviewing Pieces for You! The author is really sweet. I read Bitter Sweet Love and really enjoyed it! I love JLA :) Unwrapped looks like a sweet romance! Great Haul Chelsea!!

    Here's Mine:

  10. Nice haul this week, Chelsea! And wow, you had a lot of posts up last week, busy girl :) I hope you'll enjoy all your new books, I look forward to reading your reviews to see which ones I'll add to my own TBR :)
