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, everyone! Another week has gone by in a flash. I hope everyone is enjoying the warmer weather. At least I hope it’s getting warmer everywhere.

Although this week has been extremely productive in terms of reading, I really only got around reviewing two books. I started the week with a review of:

Red Sister by Mark Lawrence – This book tells the story of a young girl who escapes death when she is sent to a convent, The Convent of Sweet Mercy, where young girls are trained to be killers. This is a coming-of-age YA and was my first introduction to Mark Lawrence’s writing–it did not disappoint.

Pet Sematary by Stephen King – I just never get tired of praising Stephen King. I have read many of his books, even his fabulous book On Writing. This was a re-read for me. I first read Pet Sematary a long time ago in my early teens, and I have to say I still got just as scared now as I did then. Pet Sematary is still ranked in my top all-time great horror books.

We’ll start the week with a review of a YA fantasy book that is a retelling of Jane Eyre called Brightly Burning by Alexa Donne.35721194

Next, we’ll read a review of  The Book Supremacy by Kate Carlisle.Image result for the book supremacy by kate carlisle

And we’ll finish this week with a review of another book in my Classics Club Challenge, As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner.10803076

  1. I’m terribly curious about As I Lay Dying. I’ve only read one Faulkner and I wasn’t thrilled with it. I’d love to hear your thoughts.

    I’d invite you to share your post each week at Sunday Salon and join in the conversations there, too. I’ve just taken over this meme and I hope to use it to encourage more book talk in the world. The linky will be posted each Saturday on my blog and on Facebook. I’d invite you to share your post each week at Sunday Salon and join in the conversations there, too.

    1. It’s a good book. I liked the story. For Red Sister, the majority of the book takes place at the Convent and the girls getting trained to be killers. I haven’t read the other books in the series, though.

  2. I’m enjoying the warmer weather for sure! Red Sister sounds like an interesting read, and I like the idea behind Brightly Burning. I love Stephen King, but haven’t read Pet Sematary! I use to read all of his books in high school ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a wonderful week!

    1. It does, but they changed a central element in the movie, so I donโ€™t know. The first movie Stephen King wrote the screenplay, so it was pretty faithful to the book. This second movie took some artistic freedom.
