{Sunday Post}—The French Girl, Star Trek, and The Titanic Secret

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

Hello, fellow bloggers! 

I'm sipping a delicious cup of apple caramel coffee and listening to some vintage AC/DC music as I write this post. I decided to write my Sunday Post instead of working on my review of the horror film Margaux. After this review goes live, the Margaux review will be released at some point. 

  • Blues on your birthday: This year's birthday was a total flop. I assure you that I am not going through a midlife crisis. My spirits were low due to a minor cold. In addition, I've been overly stressed. I'm starting to feel better. (Apparently not.)

  • When does the week actually begin? Is it Sunday or Monday? I'm debating whether to start working out again today or tomorrow. I began a new exercise routine at the beginning of the year, but it was cut short by the death of my grandmother at the end of January. I haven't felt motivated to exercise since. While I do need to lose weight, my motivation for working out this time is more stress-related. (I can feel a canker sore forming as I write this. I took a three-hour nap, and I'm feeling even worse than I did on my birthday. Figures!)

  • I was looking forward to reading Stephen King's Fairy Tale, which came out this week, but none of the Walmarts in the area have it for some reason. It's disheartening. My local Walmart has a price tag on the shelf for it, and their app says it's in stock, but employees say they've never received any copies—or any other titles, for that matter. Yes, the book section is nearly empty once more. I'll double-check in a few days. If it's not in stock, I'll order it online like I always do.

  • After a month of drought, it finally rained. Wait a second... let me rephrase that. It was a light rain, probably just enough to revive the weeds I had just mowed. I wish the autumn weather would hurry up and arrive.

What Am I Currently Reading?

I didn't read much this week. I'm still reading Girl, Forgotten by Karin Slaughter. As I mentioned in last week's post, I'll then read The Ninth Month by James Patterson and Richard DiLallo. After that, I'll read Patterson's Blowback, which I received through NetGalley. Speaking of NetGalley, I was recently approved for several ARCs, so I won't be short on new books to read for quite some time.

What is New on the Shelf?

I discovered a yellow plastic bag containing two books: The French Girl by Lexie Elliott and The Titanic Secret by Clive Cussler and Jack Du Brul. Don't worry, I'm not going insane. I recall purchasing them, but not when. My days can sometimes blend together. 

Simon & Schuster finally updated their Star Trek eBook page, and I was correct—aside from the 16 I mentioned last week, there were a few more eBooks for sale. Because Star Trek Day was on September 8th, there were 22 titles available for 99 cents, the most for a single month. Six more titles were added to my collection: TNG: All Good Things..., DS9: Warped, DS9: I, Constable, and New Frontier: The Return, Parts I, II, and III.


  1. I just watched that Willow trailer earlier today after seeing some of the D23 stuff.

    The French Girl is one I wanted to read. I remember seeing it a while back when it came out, but I never did get to it...

  2. Sorry to hear you're sick still. That's a bummer. Ooh I missed the trailer for Willow! I've been catching all the D23 reveals in spurts, but somehow this one didn't come about! I vaguely remember this movie growing up, but I'm excited for this series as well!

    Nice new reads too! Those are all new to me ones but I hope you enjoy them once you get to read them! I wish you luck on finding the new Stephen King. It always sucks when the stores don't get their books in on time. I remember many a time leaving a bookstore angry because they didn't have a book their inventory said they did.

    Here's my StS

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. I am also looking forward to reading Fairy Tale! I don't have a copy no. Come to think of it, I'm a bit behind on Stephen King and still need to read Billy Summers!

    Have good week and I hope you will get a copy soon.
