It's Sunday so it's time for the Sunday Showcase hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea to talk about what I got and the Sunday Post hosted by The Caffeinated Book Reviewer to talk about what happened this week and what's coming up next week.
What I Got:
So after a few quiet weeks on the whole book acquiring front things picked up this week.
Her Cowboy Hero by Tanya Michaels - I don't have a cowboy weakness but this book about a woman who is trying to turn her ranch into a B&B interested me.
People I Want to Punch in the Throat by Jen Mann - I follow Jen Mann's blog and thought this sounded like a fun read.
The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith - I've been dying to read this every time I see it on everyone else's blogs so I was thrilled to have a chance to pick this one up this week.
Writing in the Kitchen edited by David A. Davis and Tara Powell - This is a book about Southern food in literature
Conversations with Steve Martin edited by Robert E. Kapsis - A collection of interviews with Steve Martin.
Deadly Assets by Wendy Tyson- This mystery about 2 women who had nothing in common but disappeared on the same day sounds interesting. Plus I love a good mystery!
Emma talked me into going to a local used bookstore yesterday where I managed to pick up only 3 books for myself. I've introduced her to the early Patricia Cornwall books and she's flown through the first 2 and was looking for #3. It's fun when your kids start reading books that you've read or are reading.
Henrietta Who? by Catherine Aird
The Religious Body by Catherine Aird
Death at Devil's Bridge by Robin Paige - These were the 3 I picked up at the used bookstore. They're all by authors I've really enjoyed in the past but for some reason haven't picked up in awhile.
An Expert in Murder by Nicole Upson - This is a mystery with the mystery author Josephine Tey as the detective. I'm really excited about this one!
The Collector by Nora Roberts - This is Roberts' newest hardback and I was excited when I was able to get it in e-book form right before we leave for the beach. Definitely #1 on my TBR this trip!
On the Blog:
Hotel by Arthur Hailey - Now I just have to read Airport!
I decided to join the COYER summer vacation challenge
A few excerpts from the ghost/mystery book I'm reading with the book blogger hop, book beginnings and Friday 56
And finally the 3rd in the Hellions of High Street series by Cara Elliott - Passionately Yours
This Coming Week:
I will be preparing to go out of town, out of town or recovering from being out of town for this week so I won't be able to reply to comments or visit blogs like I like to do. Moving 6 people to the beach for a few days feels like coordinating the move for a small army. I'm just glad the older kids are old enough to get their stuff together and that the Tornado is no longer so little that he requires tons of specialized stuff.
However thanks to the fun ability to schedule posts I have this week laid out already:
Monday: Twelfth Night by Deanna Raybourn
Tuesday - My Top 10 books for this year
Wednesday - The Phantom of 5th Avenue - LOVED this one
Thursday - Old Haunts by E.J. Copperman
Friday - Friday 56/Book Beginnings
Saturday - 2 Harlequins one great one not so much.
Please comment! While I won't be able to reply I'll be able to check my email throughout the week and I love comments!
