{Sunday Post} — Beneath Dark Waters, The Hunting Party, and Weaveworld

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

* Weekly Tidbits * 

  • This week, I managed to post three reviews, which is an improvement. This week, there will be more reviews.

  • Yippee! Next Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs will play in Super Bowl LVIII.

  • Believe it or not, until Friday night, I had never seen Taxi Driver.

  • I've been listening to Ozzy Osbourne all week.

What Am I Currently Reading?

I finally completed Patrick Stewart's memoir, and my review is still pending; in other words, I'll post it when I get around to it. The horror book Let's Go Play at the Adams' by Mendal W. Johnson has been on my Libby's waiting list for a long time, and a few days ago, I received a notification that it was available to download. It was supposed to be my next read, but Heat 2 by Michael Mann and Meg Gardiner had been calling my name, so I brought Heat 2 to the laundry mat with me. I'm on page 124 as of this writing.

What's New in the Mailbox?

Gallery Books sent over an ARC of Star Trek: Picard: Firewall by David Mack. It's a prequel focusing on Seven of Nine and takes place two-and-a-half years after Star Trek: Voyager's series finale. The book also ignores the events of the old "relaunch" Star Trek: Voyager books since they're no longer canon.

Also, I received the Wednesday bookmark I had ordered from * (*Paid Link)

What's New on the Shelf?

I have a small collection of Karen Rose thrillers that I have yet to read, and my newest addition is Beneath Dark Waters.

At the last second, I stopped by the library late on Friday afternoon—and got five free books: Spirit Walk (Walk of the Spirits and Shadow Mirror) by Richie Tankersley Cusick, The Devil's Crossing by William W. Johnstone and J.A. Johnstone, When the Shooting Starts by William W. Johnstone and J.A. Johnstone, The Paris Apartment by Lucy Foley, and The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley.

When I miss my regular thrift store excursion, folks take note. "It's not Monday," remarked one of the volunteers yesterday afternoon. What I can say is that I was busy last Monday and will be even busier this Monday. That store is a mess with loads of "junk" strewn around; they'll never sell any of it; better off putting it in a dumpster—and I'm being respectful.

The book section has winded down quite a bit, with mostly low-end romantic paperbacks. I picked up one 25-cent hardback—Clive Barker's Weaverworld.

Additionally, I picked up four ten-cent older paperbacks: Alfred Hitchcock Presents: Stories Not for the Nervous, The Man Next Door by Mignon G. Eberhart, The Listener by Theodora Du Bois, and The Gods Themselves by Isaac Asimov.

New eBooks on my Kindle include Star Trek: The Brave and the Bold: Book One and Book Two by Keith R.A. DeCandido, The Tale Teller by Anne Hillerman, Coldheart Canyon by Clive Barker, and Hell and Back by Craig Johnson.


  1. Nie to see Ozzy. Bark at the Moon and Perry Mason two faves of mine.

    I thought The PAris Apartment was pretty good.

    I love seeing those old paperbacks

  2. Yeah my family is now planning a super bowl party since Chiefs are in it again! Will be curious to see how many times the camera pans to Taylor for the real BIG game! *eyeroll*

    Nice new reads! I remember reading at least one book by Cusick some years ago! I remember enjoying it and was always curious about this particular one too! Hope you enjoy all your new reads!

    Here's my StS

  3. Quite a book haul there. I enjoy Lucy Foley books and am excited for her new one coming out in June!

    I have read one book by Karen Rose and enjoyed it.

    Have a good week!
