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!
What can I say about this past week? I could tell you that I spent 3 consecutive days in bed rolling in my own self pity, listening to audiobooks, demanding cake and binge watching episodes of Supernatural when the room was not spinning, but I won’t. That would be ridiculous and incriminating. So just assume I was preoccupied with some very important, top-secret task and that is why I was unable to post for most of the week 😉 Anyhow.. shall we?
Ink and Bone (The Great Library #1)
By Rachel Caine
In an exhilarating new series, New York Times bestselling author Rachel Caine rewrites history, creating a dangerous world where the Great Library of Alexandria has survived the test of time.…
Ruthless and supremely powerful, the Great Library is now a presence in every major city, governing the flow of knowledge to the masses. Alchemy allows the Library to deliver the content of the greatest works of history instantly—but the personal ownership of books is expressly forbidden.
Jess Brightwell believes in the value of the Library, but the majority of his knowledge comes from illegal books obtained by his family, who are involved in the thriving black market. Jess has been sent to be his family’s spy, but his loyalties are tested in the final months of his training to enter the Library’s service.
When his friend inadvertently commits heresy by creating a device that could change the world, Jess discovers that those who control the Great Library believe that knowledge is more valuable than any human life—and soon both heretics and books will burn…
- My giveaway for one copy of Wink Poppy Midnight is still going! It is open internationally to anyone that can receive Book Depository shipments. You can still enter here.
- I had the pleasure of featuring an excerpt from Carolyn Ridder Aspenson’s upcoming title Unexpected Outcomes.
- I made the decision to turn off commenting moderation. I am hoping I will not regret this. But as I find my time online limited, I realized that when I posted spotlights, etc. I was limiting the author’s feedback and interaction when not available to logon and approve comments. Fingers crossed!
- I am finding that three to 4 posts a week seems to be an ideal schedule when health allows and so far it is working. The biggest downside to limited screen time now is how little blog hopping I accomplish.
It has been an odd week that somehow managed to be uneventful, yet tiring. I am not sure where the time has went. I hope that each of you find a moment to relax and enjoy a good book and cuppa!
“Take some more tea,” the March Hare said to Alice, very earnestly.
“I’ve had nothing yet,” Alice replied in an offended tone, “so I can’t take more.”
“You mean you can’t take less,” said the Hatter: “it’s very easy to take more than nothing.”
“Nobody asked your opinion,” said Alice.”
