Sunday Post #68

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It's a chance to share news ~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share new about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

~~~~~~~~~~

Another week of October has slipped away. Where does the time go? It feels as each year the time slips through my fingers like water. Now, it feels like water rushing down a waterfall. There is no pause before each molecule is gone. It seems crazy!

I did get a few posts up last week. But I didn't get to my emails. I hate that as I am one to respond to emails, and it's been about two months now since I've done so. Maybe this week will be the week I can get to those. Kiddo is done with football now and we aren't doing training this week. So maybe...

I even have a few reviews that I have to write yet as well. And October will be ending soon and November will be here. That means NaNoWriMo! *sigh*

For Review Consideration:



Purchased/Winnings/Gifts:
Red Blooded by Amanda Carlson
Goodreads Synopsis:
After Jessica's brother is kidnapped and taken to the Underworld, she will stop at nothing to get him back. But before her grueling training is finished, Jessica's power mixes unexpectedly with the circle and she's dropped into the Underworld without protection or her escorts.

The Goblin Market by Jennifer Melzer
Goodreads Synopsis:
Beyond the Goblin Market lies the remains of a lost and broken kingdom divided by war. The war has been over for centuries, but the kingdoms still stand apart, overrun by a creeping goblin darkness known as the Darknjan Wald. It has been written that only one holds the power to destroy that darkness and reunite the kingdoms, but she has no memory of her former life. 

Meredith Drexler must save her sister, Christina, from the wicked goblin king, Kothar, who has kidnapped the girl in order to convince Meredith to uphold an ancient commitment Meredith doesn't remember making. Sent Upland disguised as a human child, she has no recollection of her former faerie life, or her uncle's promised marriage betrothal to Kothar. 

When she ventures back Underground in search of Christina, every step Meredith takes brings memories of her forgotten past back to the surface. As the pressures of her former life entangle with her quest to save her kidnapped sister, Meredith's predetermined fate is revealed. Will she embrace it, or walk away forever from a life she barely remembers as her own?

(Nook)
Vatican Assassin by Mike Luoma
Goodreads Synopsis:
BERNARD CAMPION'S friends call him "BC." Not that he has a lot of friends. You don't make a lot of friends when you're an assassin. His mission: eliminate the governor of Luna Prime, Meredith McEntyre. His bosses, The Office of Papal Operations: The OPO, tell him she's been sympathizing with the enemy, the Universal Islamic Nation (UIN). His boss? BC works for the Pope. IT'S 2109, a time of war. BC is "officially" assigned as PR man to the Vatican Mission on Luna Prime, the major city on The Moon, as his cover. Just a mild mannered, young, twenty-something priest working for the New catholic Church on public relations. But he's really a weapon pointed at the UIN by the NcC and their Earth based allies, the Universal Trade Zone, the UTZ.

  1. It is always good when one sport comes to an end. My son played football and Rugby in the spring, so winter was slower, just weight training. Once he got a car..even better!

    1. Oh Kimba, you know the feeling of the sports all too well then. We don't do Rugby, but football - yes. Now we are getting into the lifting and training for winter, but that is a bit slower paced as to the season. Oh the car...... lol.
