The Sunday Post

 

IMG_1619The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. A post to recap the past week, and share news about the upcoming week.

Happy Sunday! It’s 69 degrees in Nevada and I’m not complaining! Spring has certainly sprung here with cooler mornings and warmer days. The pollen count is also super high, so allergies are at their worst this time of the year.

I started out this week with a review of Melanie Golding’s Little Darlings, a book that, although not published yet, has generated a significant amount of buzz. Let me tell you that the buzz is worth it. This is probably one of my favorite books this year. Considering that this is Melanie Golding’s debut novel and there is already talk of a movie deal gives you a bit of perspective.

I followed with a review of Adrienne Chinn’s The Lost Letter From Morocco a book that is by no means a bad novel, but just didn’t really live up to my expectations.

 Review of The Lost Letter From Morocco

I finished the week with a book from my long forgotten The Classics Club Challenge list. I had five years to read fifty classics. In a little more than a year from now my challenge ends and I’m not even half-way done. Needless to say, I foresee a significant number of classic book reviews coming up this year.

Wide Sargasso Sea is Jean Rhys’ masterpiece. I mean, it only took her twenty-seven years to write it. I really loved this book. I think it was a great complement to Jane Eyre. It is definitely worth reading it, if not for some of the social/racial themes of the book and the beautiful and sensual imagery she uses to depict the Caribbean.

We’ll start the week with a review of a fantasy book by the wonderful Juliet Marillier, The Dreamer’s Pool.

We’ll move on to review the first book in the Veronica Speedwell series, A Curious Beginning.

And we’ll finish this week with a review of Libby Howard’s The Tell-all, a Locust Point Mystery.

    Well, no book reviews here. I am very much behind on reading. However, as a newcomer to your page, I will say I am thoroughly enjoying it and appreciate your insights. Keep it up!

  2. I’m so glad to hear how much you liked Wide Sargasso Sea. It looks like a book I would enjoy, but I wasn’t sure. I think I will add it, on your recommendation, to my next Classics Club list.

    One of the things I like about the Classics Club is the freedom to add and delete book titles and to adjust completion dates at will. I am keeping a running list of books I want to read. If I start a book that I don’t like, I’m allowing myself to delete that book from the list and replace it with something I like more. Hey, I’m a grownup, and I can read what I like.

    Have a great week!

    I am almost done with Little Darling and I am really enjoying it after the slow start of it. I hope to have it done in the next week. Happy Reading!
