Sunday Post #84




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

This has been a very quiet week on the blog, no posts- just too much going on. I've started watching Mako Mermaids  it's set in Australia. Wherever they are filming it is a nice area. 

This week I'll have reviews of The Mystery Off Glen Road and another Hardy Boys post as well. I'm on a roll with these of late and have several more in the pipeline as well. In fact, I'll have to read something NON Hardy Boys related soon or this will turn into a retro blog. Also just a heads up- Rathe Be Reading YA will also be reviewing The Mystery off Glen road this week, so check out her thoughts as part of her Retro Reads.

THIS WEEK: 

TUE: THe Mystery Off Glen Road
THUR: The Secret of the Lost 

NEW ARRIVALS/ UPCOMING REVIEWS:

 


BLOGOSPHERE STUFF: 

The Best Books Ever reviews Where Treetops Glisten

    1. It's a fun show, I recommend it- good for teens but clean, and I like that it's set in Australia too.

  2. It's nice to have a quiet week every so often. In this case, it sounds like the perfect way to transition between months. Enjoy the coming week.

  3. I loved Trixie Belden. I have nearly a complete set of the books. I'm missing number 38. I've seen it go for over $70 on eBay! I will confess that I didn't read all the Trixie books. They kept going in and out of print and I outgrew them.

  5. My daughter LOVES that show! I just noticed on Netflix they had the second season and she has already watched it twice :)

    I seriously can't get enough of those covers someone need to make a poster with them all, that would be so cool!

    Have a great week, Greg! Happy Reading!

  12. I haven't watched that show but I do know it's filmed on The Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia. A beautiful part of the world and somewhere I've had several great holidays. Well worth a visit if you get the chance. Thanks for sharing Greg, I hope you have a fantastic week.

  13. Just enjoyed the small clip of Mako Mermaid - looks fun.Can vouch that if as Sharon says its on the Gold Coast then it is a great place to swim and have done so a couple of times. Would love to live there!

  15. How cool, Mako Mermaids is actually filmed on the Gold Coast, and one of the location spots is the Broadwater ... I've got photos on my blog today of my granddaughter on that beautiful area of the Broadwater :)
    Happy reading!

  16. I've never heard of Mako Mermaids, I'll have to check it out.

    I've been enjoying your Hardy Boys reviews and as for being a retro review blog, why not? There's no end of blogs that review newer books but blogs that review older books are hard to find. Why shouldn't older books be loved too?

  19. Ha! No kids so I'm not really aware of kids shows out there. I used to watch quite a few things with my niece (but she's now 18!).

    Lovely to see another Trixie Belden there!

  21. I love those covers and they make me feel like a kid again. I'll have to look up Mako Mermaids for my daughter. We both love mermaids.

    I hope you have a great week!

  22. That mermaid show looks like a lot of fun! And you're clearly having fun with the vintage MG/YA mysteries, too. One of these days, I should reread my Judy Bolton collection. :-)

  23. Ha ha, my sister is 42, but she will absolutely love the Mako Mermaids show! I cannot wait to show it to her. And gosh, I had forgotten all about Trixie Beldon. Memories. :)
