The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer that I am linking my Sunday Sum-Ups with. Stop by and say hello!
I was out almost 4 full days this week, so I have missed a lot! I am definitely excited to be back online, as I often do not realize how much of an outlet my writing (even when it is reviews) can truly be. So all in all, a shorter sum-up this week.
I celebrated Mother’s Day early yesterday, as the nonhusband is preparing to leave for a week-long trip this morning. I want to wish all of my friends a very Happy Mother’s Day. Be it children, fur babies or friends and family, we are all supporters and caregivers in our own way

Blurb: Saunders made his fortune as a hatchet man for hire and has come to England to do what he does best: chop down the little guys to clear the way for a global firm. But his train north just made an unexpected stop to let on some passengers straight out of the worst kind of fairy tale. Now he’s up to his ankles in blood and finding out just what it really means to live in a dog-eat-dog world.
“I am not going to be killed and eaten by a wolf on an English train.”
This is a brief but enjoyable story that follows a businessman as he travels on a train through England. Unfortunately, that train has acquired some nasty passengers. This is one trip Saunders may not survive.
Well written and very grim, this short played out as a twist on the classic Red Riding Hood for me. Although, I am not sure that was ever intended. It is simply how my mind chose to wrap around this tale of wolves and morals. A tense and clever read that I appreciate not only for the entertainment value, but the author’s ability to address commercialism in such a small amount of time.
If you are looking for a quick and dark short story with a bit of morality tucked within, look no further.
I am still continuing with Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor, but have added another title (recommended by my lovely sister) to the mix this week.
By Bentley Little
Five complete strangers from across America are about to come together and open the door to a place of evil that they all call home. Inexplicably, four men and one woman are having heart-stopping nightmares revolving around the dark and forbidding houses where each of them were born. When recent terrifying events occur, they are each drawn to their identical childhood homes, only to confront a sinister supernatural presence which has pursued them all their lives, and is now closer than ever to capturing their souls….
- Goodreads Monday featured Ragdoll by Daniel Cole.
- Kristin @ Kristin’s Novel Cafe won The Lot of a Nobody by Dave Johnston.
Again, a short but fun week. I am excited as I will have a second post today announcing my new feature. I am also a bit nervous, but we will see just how it goes 😉 Take care and just enjoy being my friends.
