Sunday Post – 6/22/14

June 22, 2014 Sunday Post, week in review 20

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

I’m out of town, spending some time with extended family at a mountain lodge in Virginia. Internet access is iffy, so I’ve prepared a few posts ahead of time, but if I haven’t answered your comments so far, it’s because I can’t!  That’s also why I switched to CAPTCHA for the week; I’ll go back to moderated comments as soon as I get back. And I’ll catch up with you all over the coming week, I promise!

Last week on the blog:

    The Raybourn’s look interesting! I definitely need to read more of that series. I’m super curious about The Book of Life. Hope you’re having a great vacation!

      We had a terrific time and it’s not over yet! A little over half the family have come back to our house, and several are staying until midweek (the others leave tomorrow.)

      As for the Lady Julia Grey series, I’m way behind. I read books 1 and 2 several years ago; now I need to catch up!

  2. Stephanie Shepherd

    The Stephanie Laurens book looks like a fun series that I hadn’t heard of and I’m intrigued by the Mary Robinette Kowal novelette. You always help me add to my TBR:)

    • Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard

      Glad to be of assistance! 😉 I’ve actually been wanting to read Kowal’s Glamourist Histories series, and they just came in at the library. If only I can find time to squeeze them in!

    • Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard

      It’s been wonderful! Some of them came home with us and are are staying on until midweek, which will be really great.

      I think you’ll enjoy the second Harkness book – if you like historical fiction along with your paranormal stuff, that is!

  3. Bea

    I’m curious about the enriched editions, what extras do they have?

    I hope you’re enjoying your family time and see you when you get back!

    • Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard

      I have no idea; I haven’t had a chance to look at them yet! I didn’t have any of the books except #1 (though I’ve read #2 from the library), so I grabbed them when they went on sale.

      We’re back, and it will be good to “see” everyone! But we’ve still got family staying with us, so I’ll be checking in in spare moments.

    • Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard

      I can’t wait to read book 3; I’ve been excited about it for 2 years! And I’m hoping to get back into Raybourn’s series this summer or fall at the latest. Have a great week, Kimberly!

    Hope you are enjoying yourself with your family out there. Lucky you, to get the third Harkness book! I actually have book 2 on my kindle and somehow never got to it. I’ve been reading shorter books lately– more in a week– but perhaps I will get busy on reading it so I can go straight into The Book of Life. Have a good week.

    • Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard

      I need to clear one or two review books off my list before I can start the Harkness, and I’m so tempted to just dive into it anyway! But I guess I’ll feel better about myself if I don’t get too far behind on everything else. 😉

    Midnight thief looks very good ! Have fun with your family and have a great week in the mountain 😉

    • Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard

      Thank you, we did! Some of them came home with us and stayed through much of this past week, so I’m still behind on answering comments. Sorry about that! I’m trying to catch up now. 🙂

    • Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard

      Good luck – I hope you got caught up! I’m doing fine and have been enjoying family visits, but it’s put me behind on reading, reviewing, and answering comments. Hopefully I can catch up this weekend (meaning 6/28 and 6/29.)
