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

Good Afternoon, Everyone!


What Am I Currently Reading?


Yes, I'm still reading Stephen King's IT and one of these days I'm actually going to finish reading it. I had to put IT on the back burner because I had to read two other ARC titles - Underestimating Miss Cecilia and The Maine Nemesis. The review for Underestimating Miss Cecilia was posted early this morning and the review for The Maine Nemesis will be posted sometime tomorrow.

On the reading agenda this week is the Scary Stories To Tell in The Dark trilogy. If you don't already know, the feature film based on the first book will be released to theatres on August 9th. I read all three titles during my childhood and I'm going to start rereading them tomorrow. I'll be posting reviews for them later in the week. After I finish reading the trilogy, I'll refocus my full attention on finishing IT, which I'm planning on posting a review for the massive novel next month near the release date of the IT: Chapter 2 movie.

Books


It's always nice to get a surprise book in the mailbox and that's exactly what happened to me last week when I received the Ripley's Believe It or Not!: Beyond The Bizarre! (16th Annual) from Ripley's Publishing. Plus, they sent me the 100 Years Of Ripley's Believe It or Not!: Official Anniversary Edition magazine.

DVDs/Blu-rays


I need to get caught up on DVDs and Blu-rays as I have a pile of them on my desk that needs to be reviewed. Yesterday, I received another package from Mill Creek Entertainment. The DVDs titles are: Pan Am: The Complete Series and Dead Don't Die in Dallas. The Blu-ray titles are: The New Kids, White Line Fever, and Roxanne. I've already watched Dead Don't Die in Dallas so keep an eye out on my review for it. It'll be posted as a Midnight Horror Review either on Monday or Tuesday next Sunday. Since there's nothing on TV tonight I might watch The New Kids.

New on the Bookshelf

I won an eBook copy of Servant by J.S. Bailey from a LibraryThing giveaway. Also, I received an eBook copy of Unearthed: A Death Seeker Novel by Cecy Robson which I'll be reviewing on this blog next month as part of a book blog tour.

  1. I don't think I'll ever watch the new IT movies. I'm still traumatised from the original one... No joke. That movie left scars!

    I hope you have a good week!

    1. The first part of the 1989 miniseries scared the crap out of me. I didn't watch the second part until I was a teenager! I just don't like clowns! The 2017 movie was really good.

    1. The movie looks great. I'll probably see it when it comes out on Blu-ray or DVD.
