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, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog…
Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists….
Good morning blogland. How is everyone doing? It has been a very cold week in my neck of the woods and we even had a snow day off work mid-week which was a nice little break. We are expecting snow again tomorrow night.
Book-wise, I am almost finished with The Duchess Deal: Girl Meets Duke 1 by Tessa Dare, which is really entertaining. I’m glad I made it my first read of 2018. It is part of a series but I will have to wait till August to get the second book. Tessa Dare has become one of those authors whose books I just expect will be good.
In my mailbox, I received a copy of Earl Interrupted (The Daring Marriages) through NetGalley/Sourcebooks this week. I like this pretty cover.
Captain Robert Ashton, Earl of Darington, knows finding a bride in London will not be easy—not since he has been notoriously dubbed as the “Pirate Earl”. What he didn’t expect was to get abducted—and to have his escape go horribly awry when an innocent lady gets caught in the crossfire.
Amateur physician Emma St. James is on her way to meet her betrothed when she is rescued by an injured gentleman. Despite her shock after discovering he is the Pirate Earl, Emma feels drawn to the man who saved her life….
Oh, and I found my book cover doppleganger. My Name Is Venus Black arrived via AmazonVine. If you want to know what I look like, this is it. When hubby and my daughter saw this book they both agreed it looks like me…lol. Down to the aviator sunglasses. Oh my gosh too funny. I might have to take a book selfie with this one. I’ll probably read this next.
In this riveting, heartfelt debut, a young woman assumes a new name to escape her dark past and find the redemption she desperately seeks.
Yarn also arrived at home this past week. A favorite craft store has its “yarn-normous” sale going on and it has been so hard to resist. The deals are too good. I have to say I controlled myself only because I went with my daughter and she was the voice of reason. I got six skeins of Red Heart Neon Stripes. I’ll be using these to color pool a blanket once I’m finished with my current project.
As far as TV programs go, I finally jumped on the Amazon Prime bandwagon this past November and now I have Prime Video has been nice. I enjoy reading/watching anything Tudor related, especially anything about Henry VIII and his wives and daughters. So I’ve watched Six Wives of Henry VIII which was very good. I also watched Elizabeth I a 2 part mini-series with Helen Mirren playing the queen, and it was interesting with a great cast. I started up Inside The Tower of London: Crimes, Conspiracies, Confessions but stopped after episode 3, I felt like that is all that was needed, then it just started to get a bit all over the place. This one is mainly about famous tower prisoners and attempts at escaping and torture that went on there in order to get prisoners to “confess”.
And last but not least, we went to a favorite Japanese Hibachi Steak House on New Years Eve Eve and it was delicious. The food was great and so were the Mai Tai’s.
That’s all for now, what are you reading? Watching? Enjoy your week and stay warm.
