THE SUNDAY POST is a weekly feature hosted by Kimba at The Caffinated Book Reviewer. It is a chance to recap the previous week, share news, showcase books and/or bookish things we have received, and tell about what is coming up on our blog in the next week. You can view the rules, HERE.
I've become depressed with this neverending sub-zero weather, so I have been using my mother's strategy and looking at seed catalogs and daydreaming about flowers.
There were a lot of things going on this week, so I will be hitting on the highlights I can remember because it was kind of a blur.
I had wanted an ARC of Made You Up even though it is YA Contemporary, and I don't usually read those, because it deals with Schizophrenia. I had two acquaintances in college suffering with it. One has done okay and one hasn't. I am truly curious how this book handles the subject. I was happy to see I was approved.
I like to browse the "download" selections for gardening books and cookbooks and I came across this excellent book...
It is mainly about using every possible part of a plant in cooking, but it also has tips on storage and nutrition facts. You can read my Goodreads mini-review, HERE.
My heart's desire this week on Edelweiss was Peaceful Neighbor and I was over the moon when I saw I was approved.
Mr. Rogers was a huge part of my son's childhood. I had the privilege of meeting Fred Rogers when my ex and I shot the production stills for an episode he filmed in Ithaca, N.Y. The man simply radiated positive energy. I will be doing a special review of this book and will include some of those photographs.
I posted a TMT on Tuesday.
I received my Goodreads First Reads win of The Winter People, and my Amazon order of Serendipity Market arrived.
My Reviewer Appreciation Giveaway prize from author Lori M. Lee arrived! I was expecting a signed hardcover of her first book, Gates of Thread and Stone, and an ARC of the sequel, The Infinite, but she sent me both signed in hardcover!
Again, I will get better photos for my end of the month Stacking the Shelves post.
I had been disappointed to find out that the ebook of Seraphina I received from Netgalley was only a sampler so I was overjoyed to find it as an ebook for $1.99 this week! I can now binge read because I did get a complete ARC of the sequel Shadow Scale from Netgalley.
I was alowed to pick a choice of two books from a selection of four Amazon Read It First books because of my Prime 30 day free trial. I chose The Mermaid's Sister and some other book I can't remember because it was a mystery (not my thing)
Any sugestions about Hulu and/or Netflix?
