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!
It has been another good week with limited hurdles. I did suffer a few minor setbacks with work thanks to migraines, but I was able to rest and easily get back on track. I even made it into the office on Friday for a few hours which is always a treat! Saturday, a friend and I took the kids to see Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal on the big screen as part of Fathom Events. It was pretty nice to have the opportunity to see an old favorite come to life at the theater.
The Hazel Wood (The Hazel Wood #1)
By Melissa Albert
Seventeen-year-old Alice and her mother have spent most of Alice’s life on the road, always a step ahead of the uncanny bad luck biting at their heels. But when Alice’s grandmother, the reclusive author of a cult-classic book of pitch-dark fairy tales, dies alone on her estate, the Hazel Wood, Alice learns how bad her luck can really get: her mother is stolen away―by a figure who claims to come from the Hinterland, the cruel supernatural world where her grandmother’s stories are set. Alice’s only lead is the message her mother left behind: “Stay away from the Hazel Wood.”
Alice has long steered clear of her grandmother’s cultish fans. But now she has no choice but to ally with classmate Ellery Finch, a Hinterland superfan who may have his own reasons for wanting to help her. To retrieve her mother, Alice must venture first to the Hazel Wood, then into the world where her grandmother’s tales began―and where she might find out how her own story went so wrong.

What I am watching this week:
I am actually starting The Frankenstein Chronicles on Netflix after a friend brought it to my attention. I love Sean Bean.. but we all know he will die. Has he ever been casted for a part and lived?!
What I am listening to:
Nirvana Unplugged on Vinyl
I was pretty excited when this arrived this week. Unfortunately, my Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers Greatest Hits Vinyl is on back-order. But this will do for now 😉
