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….
Happy Sunday all. Another busy week has come and gone. We had flurries a few days this week but tonight we are expecting more snowfall, could be up to 8 inches. I feel like this always happens in March. It will start later this afternoon and continue through the whole night into the early morning so I’ve got my fingers crossed for a snow day tomorrow.
Also of note this past week, we went ax throwing with a group of friends and that was alot of fun. I want to go back again. I had beginner’s luck and got a bullseye on my first throw.
Onto my updates…..
Recently on the blog:
Last week I posted my thoughts on Smoke Gets in Your Eyes: And Other Lessons from the Crematory by Caitlin Doughty which was morbidly interesting and funny as well.
My reading has been slow lately and I fully blame work. Most days my eyes are too tired from the computer strain to be able to read in the evenings. I’ve been doing most of my reading on the weekends. I am still in the middle of The Darkest Night (Lords of the Underworld #1) .
And I finally started reading My Lady Captor by Hannah Howell. This one came through NetGalley. I like the updated cover and the pink sky. And, I like that the heroine has taken him hostage instead of the other way around but I realized I’m not a fan of reading the Scottish accents.
In My Mailbox:
“In spring 1918, Lieutenant Colin Mabry, a British soldier working with MI8 after suffering injuries on the front, receives a message by carrier pigeon. It is from Jewel Reyer, the woman he once loved and who saved his life–a woman he believed to be dead. Traveling to France to answer her urgent summons, he desperately hopes this mission will ease his guilt and restore the courage he lost on the battlefield.
Colin is stunned, however, to discover the message came from Jewel’s half sister, Johanna. Johanna, who works at a dovecote for French Army Intelligence, found Jewel’s diary and believes her sister is alive in the custody of a German agent…”
Stillhouse Lake by Rachel Caine was free with AmazonPrime membership. It sounds really good since the main character’s husband is a serial killer.
“Gina Royal is the definition of average—a shy Midwestern housewife with a happy marriage and two adorable children. But when a car accident reveals her husband’s secret life as a serial killer, she must remake herself as Gwen Proctor—the ultimate warrior mom.
With her ex now in prison, Gwen has finally found refuge in a new home on remote Stillhouse Lake. Though still the target of stalkers and Internet trolls who think she had something to do with her husband’s crimes, Gwen dares to think her kids can finally grow up in peace….”
Those are my updates this week, what are you up to? Have a great week 🙂
