{Sunday Post}—Dangerous Beauty, Honor Bound, and The Ninth Month

The Caffeinated Book Reviewer's Kimberly hosts a weekly meme called "The Sunday Post"! 

Hello, fellow bloggers! 

  • On Wednesday, I'll be 41 years old. 

  • Mediacom's cable and internet problems may have been resolved at last. The internet was mostly back to its previous state of activity. I observed a technician repairing a pole down the street. Then, for the majority of Thursday, both the cable and the internet were off. Right now, everything is back to normal. 

What Am I Currently Reading?

I finished the prologue of Girl, Forgotten by Karin Slaughter on Friday afternoon, and I'm impressed with what I've read so far. The Ninth Month by James Patterson and Richard DiLallo, which was provided to me by Grand Central Publishing, will be my next read. The following ARC eBooks need to be read after that: Lucky Girl by M. Rickert; Big Bad by Lily Anderson; Treasure State by C.J. Box; Pest Cemetery by Scott Bell; Can You Survive Dracula? by Bram Stoker and Ryan Jacobson; and Paperback Jack by Loren D. Estleman.

The Bourne Sacrifice

What has Arrived in the Mail?

Revell provided me with Honor Bound by Hallee Bridgeman and Dangerous Beauty by Melissa Koslin. Both of these authors are new to me. The blurbs for the books sound intriguing. 

What is New on the Shelf?

My local Dollar Tree has been getting in a lot of "newish" books lately. They're not exactly new, but they're new to this store. On Friday, I purchased Lisa Gabriele's The Winters, Julie Carrick Dalton's Waiting for the Night Song, and Sara Blaedel's The Drowned Girl. The trio will be added to my "to be read" shelf, which is quickly filling up.

This month, Simon & Schuster has discounted some Star Trek ebooks to just 99 cents. Normally, there are only eight or nine books for sale per month, but this time around there are sixteen, at least according to the Kindle listings. The Star Trek eBook deal page at Simon & Schuster hasn't been updated and most likely won't be till after Labor Day. There might be some other books on sale; you never know. I bought five of the sixteen books—Star Trek: The Motion Picture by Gene Roddenberry; TOS: Living Memory by Christopher Bennett; TNG: Ghost Ship by Diane Carey; DS9: Emissary by J.M. Dillard; and Voyager: Children of the Storm by Kirsten Beyer—that I didn't already own.


  1. Happy birthday this week! The Bourne Sacrifice- hmm. I'm a big fan of those movies but haven't rread any of the actual novels.

    That's interesting about Dollar Tree and their selection of books. I've been meaning to go in mine and see what they have. Gonna have to do that this week. I agree with some of the comments on the friday post about stores and books- it is hard to find books other the biggest releases

    1. Except for the titles, the films have nothing in common with their novel counterparts, with the exception of the first Bourne film.

  2. Happy early Birthday! Glad your internet and cable were fixed. That's gotta be nice!

    Nice new reads too! Those are new to me ones but I hope you enjoy them!

    Here's my StS

  4. Hope you have a good birthday next week! The books look good. I am glad that the internet is getting fixed, that can be very annoying to say the least when it isn't working!

    Have a great week next week!
