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!
Good afternoon/evening. I am running behind today, as I chose to nap this morning and did not draw a draft yesterday. It has been a productive week though and I managed 3 reviews which feels like a record lately! We finally watched It yesterday afternoon and I have to admit, I thoroughly enjoyed the film. While it did not pack the fear factor I anticipated (CGI was a tad over the top), they did well with the story line and the cast was fantastic! I immediately came home and ate and then slid right back into bed to watch the original mini-series. Fun night!
I have this odd swelling of the eyelids occurring that is making reading a tad frustrating, so I will share a brief recap and then try to catch up and hop in just a bit after some rest and meds. I have a few reviews flagged that I cannot wait to read.
The Dark Days Club
By Alison Goodman
London, April 1812. On the eve of eighteen-year-old Lady Helen Wrexhall’s presentation to the queen, one of her family’s housemaids disappears-and Helen is drawn into the shadows of Regency London. There, she meets Lord Carlston, one of the few who can stop the perpetrators: a cabal of demons infiltrating every level of society. Dare she ask for his help, when his reputation is almost as black as his lingering eyes? And will her intelligence and headstrong curiosity wind up leading them into a death trap?
Emma in the Night
By Wendy Walker
From the bestselling author of All Is Not Forgotten comes a thriller about two missing sisters, a twisted family, and what happens when one girl comes back…
One night three years ago, the Tanner sisters disappeared: fifteen-year-old Cass and seventeen-year-old Emma. Three years later, Cass returns, without her sister Emma. Her story is one of kidnapping and betrayal, of a mysterious island where the two were held. But to forensic psychiatrist Dr. Abby Winter, something doesn’t add up. Looking deep within this dysfunctional family Dr. Winter uncovers a life where boundaries were violated and a narcissistic parent held sway. And where one sister’s return might just be the beginning of the crime.
- On Wednesday I finally took the plunge and updated BVT and announced the New Look. This includes the new logo and updating all social media platforms. Please feel free to contact me with any suggestions or feedback. It is a work in process that will be slow due to the limited screen time.
- Thursday I was pleased to share an excerpt from Justine J Hemmestad’s Visions of a Dream on A Nice Brew & Something New.
- Today I announced the winner of the Wink Poppy Midnight giveaway. A huge thank you for making this giveaway and review such a success! Congratulations Megan @wanderingsofabookbird!
- I also want to briefly share my enthusiasm that there will be a series of Black Mirror books released starting in February 2018! No idea how this news escaped me. Like many of you, I am a huge fan of the series. You can find more info on the first volume at Penguin Random House.
I hope you are all very well and enjoying what remains of your Sunday. I am personally pleased to sit back and sip my first pumpkin latte (no shame in my game), take in the cooler weather and recharge.
