The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. I have decided to link up and share my Sunday Sum-Ups with Kimba and her Sunday Posts. If you have not visited the Caffeinated Book Reviewer, then be sure to stop by and consider linking up!
As many of you know, I am not able to venture out as often as I would like of recent. This weekend happened to be a good one for me though so we made a journey to the Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maize, where I learned two valuable lessons.
Living in Oregon without owning boots is ridiculous and shameful!
Avoid scarecrows at all costs! (Thank you Season 1, Episode 11 of Supernatural for reiterating this)
I would love to post the great pics I obtained of the kids, but they would probably never forgive me if discovered. So now that you have seen my disgusting tennis shoes and a creep scarecrow (you are welcome), let’s look back at this previous week and my current endeavors here on Books, Vertigo and Tea.

I am still continuing with The Amateurs by Sara Shepard, which is fantastic so far. Unfortunately, I need to hold off on my review for a few days, so I am trying to slow down. I do not like to wait too long after completing a book to post reviews. So I have added two more titles to the mix.
Dark Fate The Gathering (Dark Fate #1)
By Matt Howerter and John Reinke
Publisher: Idea Forge Publishing (EBook)
An arranged marriage.
A lost heir to the dwarven throne.
An ancient undead seeks to manipulate four unlikely heroes.
Princess Sloane is to become a queen. Her marriage will unite the last two human kingdoms of Orundal. As it is not a marriage of choice but of necessity, she struggles with the responsibility laid before her, not knowing that the sacrifice she makes for her homeland will be but the first that she must endure.
Her twin sister, Princess Sacha, has been called from her studies at the Monastery to support Sloane in her time of need. Sacha has begun to learn the ways of the arcane and deals with her own troubles concerning the loss of a family that has been taken from her.
The sisters will not face their fates alone as Erik and Kinsey, steadfast companions, become their guides.
Erik seeks only solace for himself and his adopted son, but soon learns that such a wish is impossible to attain as the events around them unfold.
Kinsey, orphaned at birth, wrestles with his newfound rage not realizing that its cause is tied to his unknown heritage.
A tale of adventure filled with dwarves and elves, men and mages, were-beasts and the undead who clash together in a conflict so vast it will consume them all. These four troubled souls will become champions in the struggle for survival, as dark forces gather to destroy them.
Drown: A Twisted Take on The Classic Fairy Tale
By Esther Dalseno
Publisher: 3 Little Birds Books
Seven emotionless princesses.
Three ghostly sirens.
A beautiful, malicious witch haunted by memories.
A handsome, self-mutilating prince.
Belonging to a race that is mostly animal with little humanity, a world obsessed with beauty where morality holds no sway, a little mermaid escapes to the ocean’s surface. Discovering music, a magnificent palace of glass and limestone, and a troubled human prince, she is driven by love to consult the elusive sea-witch who secretly dominates the entire species of merfolk. Upon paying an enormous price for her humanity, the little mermaid begins a new life, uncovering secrets of sexuality and the Immortal Soul. As a deadly virus threatens to contaminate the bloodstreams of the whole merfolk race, the little mermaid must choose between the lives of her people, the man she loves, or herself.
A complete reinvention of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairy tale, this is a magical-realist fable that captures the essence of sacrifice and the price of humanity.
As I wrap up for the day, I want to mention that I am still experiencing some issues with commenting on WP. I receive a lot of errors that I am currently addressing.
While I will continue to like and share your great reviews, I may not be able to provide much feedback at this point. My apologies. I guess that is my “trick” for the week 😦
In the meantime, I am still open for a few Blog Tours and Reviews (please see guidelines). Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact form linked above. Take care and have a wonderful Sunday and upcoming week!
