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

  • There are weekly tidbits to share. 

What Am I Currently Reading? 

My reading has been slow as of late. I'm halfway through the graphic novel Mindset. I'll finish it tonight and write my review for tomorrow's post. Also, I need to read another graphic novel, The Blue Flame, because my review post is due on the 7th. Then I'll read End After End, another graphic novel; my review is due on the 12th. 
As for regular books, I'm on chapter 3 of Star Trek Discovery: Somewhere to Belong by Dayton Ward. Then I'll move on to My Heart Will Find You by Jude Deveraux and Tom Clancy's Flash Point by Don Bentley. 
I was supposed to review ChupaCarter and the Haunted Pinata last week, but I didn't receive an ARC on time, so I had to post a spotlight instead. A few days later, I received it and the previous book, ChupaCarter. So, I'll be reading these eventually.

Recent Reviews


What's in the Mailbox?

The only new books in the mail were the 2 ChupaCarter books by George Lopez and Ryan Calejo and Tom Clancy's Flash Point by Don Bentley.

What's New on the Shelf?

I picked up Follow Me to Hell: MicNelly's Texas Rangers and the Rise of Frontier Justice by Tom Clavin at Walmart. At a Family Dollar/Dollar Tree hybrid store, I bought Sisters of the Fire by Kim Wilkins. The books are supposed to be $1.25 there, but I had to pay $5 because the book wasn't in their computer system. 

I went back to Dollar General, which has a better selection of books. I picked up Liar's Paradox by Taylor Stevens, Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Initiative by Eric Van Lustbader, The Ultimatum by Kare Robards, and Willful Child by Steven Erikson. 

I found Saving Grace by David Baldacci at an antique store for 75 cents. I picked out two "free" library books: The Guilty by David Baldacci and Two Kinds of Truth by Michael Connelly.

I hit the jackpot at the thrift store, snagging sixteen books. Yep, I said sixteen. Let's begin with the Terry Goodkind titles. I finally got a physical copy of the Wizard's First Rule. Also, I grabbed hardcovers of Stone of the Tears and Blood of the Fold, which are upgrades from the worn-out paperbacks I own.

I picked up three Terry Brooks books: First King of Shannara, The Druid of Shannara, and The Elf Queen of Shannara.

Now let's move on to the Robert Jordan novels: New Spring, The Eye of the World, The Great Hunt, The Dragon Reborn, The Shadow Rising, The Fires of Heaven, and Lord of Chaos.

Last but not least, I picked up Reader Digest's Six Gothic Tales, The Night Child by Celeste De Blasis, and Chasing Lincoln's Killer by James L. Swanson.

There is a slew of new titles on my Kindle: Bury Me Deep by Megan Abbott, The Song is You by Megan Abbott, Queenpin by Megan Abbott, Die a Little by Megan Abbott, The Worlds of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Volume One by Una McCormack and Heather Jarman, The Worlds of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Volume Two by Andy Mangels, Michael A. Martin, and J. Noah Kym, The Worlds of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Volume Three by Keith R. DeCandido and David R. George III, Alien 3: The Unproduced Screenplay by William Gibson, Tyrannosaur Canyon by Douglas Preston, NYPD Red 7 by Marshall Karp, Death's Mistress by Terry Goodkind, Don and Andy: The Making of a Friendship and American Classic by Daniel de Vise, and Call Me a Cab by Donald E. Westlake.

  1. I was a big fan of shannara back in the day. Those Megan Abbott's look good. And Reader's Digest. I was thinking of trying to collect some of the old RD Condensed books hardcovers, since my grandparents had those, for nostalgia, but I haven't.
