Sunday Post #120

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer

This week I finished up S1 of Black Sails- quite the interesting show. I have so many shows going right now, where a year ago I barely watched any TV. I also posted Cover Characteristics, a Top Ten Tuesday and a post on the upcoming Star Wars movie (as I examine why I'm nervous about the plot even as I look forward to the film). 

SciFi Month is over, was a lot of fun, and I'm gearing up now for Vintage Science Fiction Month in January. Details here

These two are the best part of Black Sails. 


And for Christmas...


  1. I loved my Nancy Drew mysteries...a few years ago, I bought the first three, but haven't yet reread them.

    I love vintage art work...

    The Conspiring Woman looks good...enjoy your haul!


  2. I enjoyed The Returned by S1 ended frustratingly. I think there have been remakes and ended up getting confused as to which was which though!

    1. Ps. I mean I enjoyed the French version!

  3. I saw the book cover spotlight and loved it. I love Nancy Drew's cover art. If I ever have a library I'm going to do a Nancy Drew theme. It's funny how TV works. It's either so many shows you can't keep them straight or none. Another Kate Parker! I still haven't gotten my hands on the first one but the series looks so entertaining. Have a great week!

  4. I love the cover for the Conspiring Woman and love the vintage artwork. Stay warm and have a wonderful week

  5. Black Sails ... wow, I forgot about that show. I had planned to watch it when it first started but never did. I have so many shows too, but I'm only up to date with 3 of them ... TWD, Doctor Who, and iZombie. Have a great week, Greg.

  6. Oh, Black Sails. I contemplated about buying that for my husband for Christmas, but ended up buying The Last Ship instead.

    Pretty artwork. :)

  7. That Lucky Few cover caught my eye. I will have to check it out. I like the Star Wars artwork a lot. Thanks for the Peanuts music . It always puts a smile on my face. Have a great week!

  8. The Conspiring Woman looks really good, I need to look up that series. :) I have a lot of shows going right now but I have always been a bit of a TV/Movie :)

    Happy reading,

  9. I missed S1 dang it. Watching so many shows right now, like you. Bless Netflix. I usually catch up there. LOL Loving the art and spotted a couple new books I'd like to read. Have a wonderful Sunday:)

    My Sunday Post -

  10. I love the cover you picked for Cover Characteristics this week!
    I don't watch a lot of TV but I really want to watch a few things I am hoping to catch in the New Year.

    Timothy Anderson pictures are fantastic, those would look awesome if I ever get an office :)

    Have a great week, Greg! Happy Reading!

  11. The Conspiring Woman looks good. I may need to feed my new cozy obsession again, lol! Hope you have a great week, Greg :)

  12. I've heard of Black Sails but I haven't watched any of it, maybe I should! The Conspiring Woman looks like it could be great as well!

  13. I am very excited for the new Star Wars movie and cautiously optimistic that it will be good. I was happy with what J.J. Abrams did for Star Trek and I am thrilled that members of the original Star Wars cast returned for this movie.

    Black Sails looks interesting. I don't get Starz though I am hoping they will do what HBO did with HBONow so I can watch Outlander season two without having to wait till it's on DVD! I watch a lot more TV now too. I started watching three new shows in 2015 and Netflix makes it even easier to discover new things to watch. My sister and a friend are raving about The Man in the High Castle so I may have to check that out too.

  14. I'm with you on tv viewing. I didn't have nearly as many shows on my Netflix list a year ago and now that I have so many and no time to watch them, well...I need to *make* more time. :D My son has ants in his pants for the Star Wars movie. I get a daily countdown even though he knows we never go opening weekend. lol

  15. I like those art prints, pretty cool. I also have SO many shows I'm "currently" watching. Which really just means I'm WAY behind on all of them and I feel so overwhelmed that I completely give up. I'm finally catching up a bit with Once Upon a Time, though!

    Here is my The Sunday Post!

  16. I love those vintage prints, I would love some of them on my walls. They remind a little of the vintage railway posters we had in the UK many years ago.

    Have a great week!

  17. Oooh I love that vintage artwork! ♥ Especially the Middle Earth and Star Wars ones! I want them all on my wall XD I've never heard of The Conspiring Woman...but: Victorian? Bookshop? Mystery? YES.PLEASE. I'll definitely be looking out for your review on that :) Happy reading!

  18. The Conspiring Women looks like a good book! The cover for The Immortals and The Lucky few both look great.I saw that Star Wars artwork a while ago on facebook I think, they look pretty cool. I am looking forward to the new movie! Have a great week!

  19. The Conspiring Women looks really good. I hope you have a great week!

  20. Finally got caught up on my DVR'd programs, not I have nothing to watch, so I'll head over to Netflix or Prime and see what grabs my attention. Like the look of ...Underwater. Enjoy this mild weather we are having.

  21. I love the Timothy Anderson artwork! I have to hop back and see your Beyond the Books post and your TTT. Have a wonderful week. :)

  22. Oh, I love that Rivendell poster! Have a great week :)

  23. I started Black Sails season 1 but I have to catch up. I am so behind on all my shows I'll have to wait until they get on Netflix and just binge watch. I love all the artwork! I especially love the Monterey Bay since I've been to the aquarium numerous times. Have a great week!

  24. Nice to get through a whole season of a show. Hmm so you have become a little bit of a TV addict in the last year! Could be hope for me yet! Me - I have to admit I binged on Behind the Scenes of Oprah which was about 6 years old, but only showing here now!!

  25. Love the vintage prints, I wouldn't mind the Key West or Monterey Bay one on the wall. Can't wait for season 3 of Black Sails, took me all of first season to really get into it but I'm hooked now.
    Cool cover on Under Water too. Have a great week and happy reading!

  26. The artwork you shared is amazing as always, Greg! I love it :)
    Your new books look really good, I couldn't even manage to pick one I'd want to read myself - I want them all.
    Have a fantastic week and happy reading.

  27. Those vintage artwork posters are awesome!

    I'm in the same boat as you TV-wise. Last year I barely watched TV and this year I have quite a few shows I'm working my way through. Black Sails sounds interesting. I might have to check that one out.

    I hope you have a great week!

  28. Ooo... I like the idea of a Victorian Bookshop Mystery, I'm intrigued by that one. Love all the art work you've shared in this post.

    Happy reading!

  29. I barely watched TV a year ago too, but with Netflix my kids are getting me to watch TV shows I otherwise wouldn't have seen. The cover for The Originals caught my eye. Enjoy your reading week!

  30. The Originals and The Immortals both look like good books! There are a couple new science fiction shows coming on tv on the SyFy channel, and then one on Mtv, the Shannara? I'm excited for the all. Thanks for stopping by my Sunday post earlier!

  31. I loved The Conspiring Woman! I hate to see this series end.

    Have a great week.

    Check out mine here:

  32. The Originals has an intriguing premise and I really liked your review on GR. Love the Linus and Lucy song; it's so classic. I always envision the gang dancing up and down and heads going side to side.

  33. Love the vintage-style artwork you shared - especially the Rivendell one.

  34. I love the covering on Conspiring Woman.

    You had a terrific week.

    ENJOY this week.

  35. A Victorian Bookshop Mystery - I like the sound of that. I like the looks of The Immortals too. Great artwork. You always share interesting things. Thanks and have a great week.

  36. I'm hoping to participate in the Vintage Sci-Fi month, too, but my queue keeps getting hijacked. We'll see what I can pull off. I love the cover for The Immortals. Wow. Makes me want to read it. Hopefully it's as good as its cover. :)
