Sunday Post #94
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer
This week flew by. Summetime is here and I hope to do some more Bookstore Spotlights this year. And I just realized that June is two year- how I lost track of that I don't know, but looking through my archives reminded me. It's been a fun two years, and I'm looking forward to another one. I love sharing books and connecting with fellow readers, and have made some great friends I've never actually met. The book blogging community is special, and the Sunday Post is great place to visit every week.
I picked up a new cozy this week, based on the strength of one I just read, and am loving it. This author is becoming a go- to for me, and my thoughts on this one will be up on Thursday.
Last week I reviewed A School for Unusual Girls- that can be found here. I also reviewed Tarzan and the Forbidden City (a fun read!), and my thoughts on Tomorrowland the movie. Let me know in the comments what you think.
It's a beautiful morning on Saturday as I write this- not a cloud in the sky and a nice cool breeze. Everything is still and quiet- and I've got some books to read. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

The Rock is going to be in a remake of Big Trouble in Little China. Argh.
Here's a podcast talking about the new Sansa chapter for Game of thrones. If you haven't seen it, Sansa's book arc is WAY different from the shows.
Here's a quote from the Sansa chapters.
She ran a finger down his cheek. "Should we ever wed, you'll have to send Saffron back to her father. I'll be all the spice you'll want."
He grinned. "I will hold you to that promise, my lady. Until that day, may I wear your favor in the tourney?"
"You may not. It is promised to another." She was not sure who as yet, but she knew she would find someone.
