Sunday Post #14/ It's Monday. What Are You Reading?


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

Last week I reviewed Fractured, the second book in the Slated series by Teri Terry. Very good, check out my review here.

Fractured (Slated, #2)

I also started The Paladin Prophecy. It's pretty good so far but I'll know more as I get farther into it.

The Paladin Prophecy (The Paladin Prophecy, #1)

Coming down the pike

A Poisoned Season (Lady Emily, #2)





Want to read the first 50 pages of Scott Lynch's The Republic of Thieves? Here you go.

Bookriot has 10 Awesome Secret Passage Bookshelves- check it out. I'm fond of the first one myself...

This clip from the new THOR movie is pretty good, Thor asking for help from Loki. I don't have high hopes for this film at all really, but this clip doesn't look bad.

Here's a peek at Amazon's "chaotic storage" system.

So how was your week?

    1. Thanks Kimba! I'm hoping to get this one read soon, she's got a series of these and I'll probably read them all eventually if I keep liking them...

  2. I'd read The Poisoned Season too. I think Alexander writes good historical fiction.

  5. I love the secret passage bookshelves! Wish I could have one, but I'm sure that won't happen! I'll look forward to your review of Tasha Alexander's book.

  6. I love those bookcases and passages! The first one with the piano, so stylish. Glad you are reading a Christie. I've only read a few--but I do recommend And Then There Were None. Also I've caught the movie on tv--there is an older version and a remake; try to catch the older one if possible. Enjoy the week.

  13. You've reminded me I need to get back to Scott Lynch. I thoroughly enjoyed The Lies of Locke Lamora but I haven't read the sequel yet. Thanks for reminding! Enjoy your week!

  14. I really want to read the Tasha Alexander series. I've enjoyed other historical mysteries like Deanna Raybourn's Lady Julia Grey books so I think I'd like these too.

    Hallowe'en Party is a great pick for this time of year. I read it as a teen and then watched the film version a few years ago. I saw that Dan Stephens of Downton Abbey fame has recorded some Agatha Christie audiobooks like And Then There Were None (my favorite Christie book) and I plan to give those a try sometime too.
