{Sunday Post} - The Amityville Horror II, Star Trek, and Stay Hidden


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

Good Afternoon, Everyone! 

 

Everyone, thank you for all the kind comments in my last Sunday Post. I haven't gotten around to writing replies, but I do appreciate all of them. My grandmother isn't doing any better. She has "officially" been diagnosed with late-stage Alzheimer's Disease. We had to sign her up for hospice care on Friday. Her vitals are fine, but she has lost nearly 20 pounds within the last two months. She has her good days and bad days. What I mean is there are days she can say complete sentences and days when she cannot. If you ask her what her name is, she replies, "No." My mother visited her this afternoon and said she seemed to be more alert.




 

What Am I Reading?


I read the forward from The Amityville Horror II by John G. Jones a few days ago, but I haven't picked it up again. Though it was billed as 'non-fiction' upon its release in 1982, it's a fictionalized story picking up where the original book and movie left off. The forward's first line states Ronald DeFeo, Jr. was 22-years-old when he murdered his parents and siblings in November 1974, but this is incorrect. He was 23-years-old when he committed the murders. There are other inconsistencies in the Forward as well.

What's New On the Bookshelf?


The last time I was at a thrift store, I bought The Golden Compass: Deluxe 10th Anniversary Edition by Philip Pullman. I already own the book in paperback, but I couldn't pass up buying this edition for 25 cents. Two weekends ago, I picked up The Sister by Louise Jensen and Stay Hidden by Paul Doiron at a Dollar Tree. Lastly, I've added The President's Daughter to my want-to-read pile of James Patterson books.

Recent titles on my Kindle are Captain Proton: Defender of the Earth by Dean Wesley Smith, Star Trek: Seekers: Second Nature by David Mack, Star Trek: Seekers: Point of Divergence by Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore, Star Trek: Seekers: Long Shot by David Mack, Star Trek: Seekers: All That's Left by Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore, Star Trek: Destiny #1: Gods of Night by David Mack, Star Trek: Destiny #2: Mere Mortals by David Mack, and Star Trek: Destiny #3: Lost Souls by David Mack.

  1. I'm so sorry about your grandmother. Mine had alzhiemers as well. Last time I visited her she didn't know who any of us were. It's such a hard thing to deal with. <33

  2. I'm very sorry to hear about your grandmother. My mother went through some variety of eventually terminal dementia, though with less variation and only transitory losses of language, for some time before she died (at 95).
