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….
September has arrived so fast it seems and I am not ready to say goodbye to summer yet. Labor Day is here in the U.S. already and it’s nice to have a long 3 day weekend. I really love lazy summer days and quiet summer evenings, I have more energy during this time of year. Well, it’s not quite over just yet so I will definitely be hanging onto summer as long as I can. I enjoy the Fall season too but there is something special about the summer months.
One thing I am dreading about September being here is my morning work commute on Tuesday since schools are back in so I’m back to my 45+ minute drive due to traffic jams. During the off school months it’s just a 20 minute drive. *sigh* I am going to have to start listening to audio books in my car in the mornings, I need to download the app and hook it up to my bluetooth.
Onto my mailbox…
“In 2003, P.J. TRACY, the pseudonym of mother-daughter writing team P. J. and Traci Lambrecht, released their first thriller, Monkeewrench, which became an instant hit with readers. The duo crafted seven additional novels featuring Grace MacBride, founder of Monkeewrench Software and chief computer genius, and her motley crew. Two years ago, Patricia Lambrecht passed away leaving many fans wondering if Traci would continue writing this popular series.”
On the blog:
I posted my thoughts on An EveryDay Thing by Nancy Richardson recently. It was a nice set of poems.
My thoughts on my re-read of Needful Things by Stephen King will be up soon. I started re-reading this one in May and have been on and off again with it in between other books. This has really been my summer long read.
Here I go again with the re-reading, but I couldn’t help myself and this seemed like the perfect end of summer read. It’s a quick and easy read. Theresa has found the first message and has published it in her column already….
“Thrown to the waves, and to fate, the bottle could have ended up anywhere. Instead, it is found just three weeks after it begins its journey. Theresa Osborne, divorced and the mother of a twelve-year-old son, discovers it during a seaside vacation from her job as a Boston newspaper columnist. Inside is a letter that opens with, “My Dearest Catherine, I miss you my darling, as I always do, but today is particularly hard because the ocean has been singing to me, and the song is that of our life together…” For Garrett, the message is the only way he knows to express his undying love for a woman he has lost. For Theresa, wary of romance since her husband shattered her trust, the message raises questions that intrigue her. Challenged by the mystery, and driven to find Garrett by emotions she does not fully understand, Theresa begins a search that takes her to a sunlit coastal town and an unexpected confrontation…”
My daughter and I have been on a Pride & Prejudice kick lately so we watched the 2005 film and are halfway through the BBC version. She thinks the BBC Darcy is best. I don’t know, I like them both. I am just happy she is finally watching P&P with me.
I’ll close with pictures of a sunflower field we visited recently, it was a nice day trip. They are my second favorite flowers next to my favorite pink roses.

That covers my updates for now, what are you up to?
