{Sunday Post} - Ancient Aliens, The Hunger, and Meant To Be


Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer!

Good Morning, Everyone! 

 

I hope everyone is doing well this Sunday morning. Yes, I skipped the last few Sunday Posts because I was too lazy to write them. I would have had today's post written earlier, but I had to run some errands. There hasn't been too much going on in my life, besides my bad allergies. I got the J&J vaccine shot on April 10th, and there have been no side effects so far. The weather here has been weird, again. One day it's around 80, and the next day it's in the 40s. It's supposed to snow on either Monday or Tuesday. Once again, it's weird but not unheard of for Missouri.  

 



 

 

What Am I Reading?


Due to my allergies, I haven't been reading as much. I need to finish reading Later by Stephen King, which I'll more than likely reread from the beginning. However, my next read will be The Hunger by Alma Katsu, a library ebook that expires on Wednesday. Then I will read another library loan - Walk in My Combat Boots by James Patterson.

Review - The Mary Shelley Club by Goldy Moldavsky


Amazon * Barnes & Noble * iBooks * Kobo * GooglePlay



About the Book


New York Times-bestselling author Goldy Moldavsky delivers a deliciously twisty YA thriller that’s Scream meets Karen McManus about a mysterious club with an obsession for horror.

When it comes to horror movies, the rules are clear:

x Avoid abandoned buildings, warehouses, and cabins at all times.

x Stay together: don’t split up, not even just to “check something out.” 

x If there’s a murderer on the loose, do not make out with anyone. If only surviving in real life were this easy…

Random Rambling - Dating, Exercising, and Writing


It's another sleepless night for me for many reasons I will not go into, and, no, it doesn't have anything to do with my caffeine intake, though I did brew a cup just a few minutes ago. Once again, my mind is practically running on a different cylinder than my usual norm and listening to Taylor Swift's Fearless rerelease. (Yes, I am a Taylor Swift fan. Enough said.) There are too many things I need to catch up on and several new ideas I would like to focus my attention on. If there were only more hours in a day, then maybe I could get more things accomplished. Or if I would solve my procrastination issues then, I would have plenty of time to do all things I want to do.

{Late-At-Night Rambling} - Hammer Glamour & Online Dating


Thanks to a lack of sleep and drinking a bit too much caffeine, my mind is currently running on totally different cylinders tonight. Instead of writing reviews and articles, I'm watching clips and interviews of older actresses on Youtube. Yes, I know that might sound a bit weird, but I sort of have a reason for it. I've been a Hammer Films fan since I was a little bitty kid, but my fascination with these gothic films has increased ever since I got my hands on the Hammer Films: The Ultimate Collection Blu-ray set from Mill Creek Entertainment. And I cannot exactly explain it, but a chain reaction took place. I bought several Hammer movies on DVD and Blu-ray from Scream Factory and Warner Archives and several VUDU digitals. Then I ordered the books "The Art of Hammer: Posters From The Archives of Hammer Films" and "Hammer Glamour: Classic Images From The Archives Of Hammer Films." The latter title is all about the gorgeous actresses who appeared in those films. I'm not naming names, but I have developed an infatuation with at least three of these women, even though they are all old enough to be my grandmothers.
