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 everyone. It is the last Sunday in June, when did that happen? I haven’t been around blog land too much this month, just the usual every day things keeping me busy. I love the summer months and tend to put dinner on the stove once I get home from work then I take my book or crochet out back and stay there for a little while. The warm weather beckons, especially after being stuck inside an office crunching numbers and working on files all day.
My donut floatie looks like it is levitating in this shot of our pool.
Also, I’ve been trying to get caught up on yearly doctor’s visits lately and it’s like pulling teeth trying to make appointments that aren’t months away and that fit our schedules. I couldn’t get an eye exam appointment until early September. My daughter and I got our dental cleanings done last Saturday so that was good at least. One visit checked off.
Onto bookish things….
In my Mailbox:
Eight Goodbyes arrived via Meryl Moss Media. How nice is this cover? And this blurb *insert emoji heart eyes here*. I’m reading this one now and it was good from page one, plus the heroine is a writer and I like books about books and authors. I’ve set aside Needful Things once again to fit a review book in, but I will get back to it after this one.
“One universe, nine planets, 204 countries, 809 islands and 7 seas, and I had the privilege of meeting you.”
When Tessa Talman meets Simon Fremont for the first time, not only is she attracted to him, she’s intrigued by how different their lives are. He’s a dedicated scientist, practical, pragmatic, and grounded—while she’s a head-in-the-clouds romance author. As their relationship grows, they agree to meet in places around the world, while continuing to live on opposite sides of the globe….
Also in the mail is The Haunting of Mount Cod: A Laura Boxford Mystery via Authoright. Another great cover and that little Pug 🙂
Lady Laura Boxford lives with her pug, Parker, in the retirement complex of Wellworth Lawns, formerly her family home.
One day she and her friend Venetia see the ancient actor Sir Repton Willowby arriving. He’s Venetia’s cousin by marriage and Venetia says he murdered his wife.
He lives at the Edwardian pile, Mount Cod and he says he’s being haunted by the ghost of an eighteenth century serving wench called Rosalind.
Laura is convinced he’s a charlatan using the ghost as a ruse for finding a new wife…
My daughter and I went to see Hereditary last week. I found it slow going, but tense and scary. Also, really sad and shocking. There are themes of mental illness and grief in the story-line. I wouldn’t call it a favorite horror film and I found it wasn’t as scary as all the hype, but it was worth the watch. I think I read somewhere that it was this generation’s “Exorcist”, no, it is not.
Also, I can’t remember if I mentioned it here or not but we rented Insidious The Last Key recently also and it disappointed. The Insidious films are some of my favorite horror movies and this was a let down. It wasn’t scary and just seemed unnecessary.
That covers my updates for now. I hope you are having a good summer and reading great books. What have you been up to? I’m doing my blog hopping this morning to catch up a little bit.
Enjoy your week!
