Sunday Post - Automation, Murder in the Woods, and The Midwife Murders


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

Good Afternoon, Everyone!




What Am I Reading?


My broken record continues...

After many delays, I have officially started reading Hawk. Currently, I am on chapter 19 out of 112 and two epilogues. Now, I don't mind a book having short chapters, but 112 is overkill. I will admit Hawk is better written than the last few Maximum Ride sequels, but that probably has less to do with Mr. Patterson and more to do with his co-author, Gabrielle Charbonnet.

Next, I might read Hail to the Chins: Further Confessions of a B Movie Actor by Bruce Campbell next, which is an autobiography I picked up at a Dollar Tree a few weeks ago. 

Also, I will be reading Under A Full Moon by Alice Kay Hill for an upcoming book tour. It's a true story about the last lynching in Kansas.

Hungry Monster Entertainment sent me a Blu-ray of their movie Automation. I'll be reviewing it tomorrow. And, Universal Pictures Home Entertainment sent me a DVD of the western Emperor, which I'm planning on reviewing on Tuesday.



What's New on the Bookshelf?


I've made a few stops at the local thrift store and picked up the paperback Boneman's Daughters by Ted Dekker and the hardbacks The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows, and Star Trek: Vulcan's Soul: Exiles by Josepha Sherman & Susan Shwartz.

  1. I like that Katy Perry song! Automation looks like it could be good... and Zeta looks freaky! Hope they're all good...

    I do get the urge to read Star Trek fiction every once in a while. It's been a while since I've done so.

    1. I have to be in a certain mood to read Star Wars or Star Trek novels. Simon and Schuster have five or six Star Trek ebooks on sale for 99 cents every month, so I've been buying the ones that look interesting.

  2. That Katy Perry is so catchy, it’s constantly on the radio.

    I’ve got Star Wars Thrawn, one of these days I’ll get round to reading it.

    1. I only got Star Wars: Thrawn because it was on sale for $1.99 yesterday.
