Sunday Post #163


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


This has been a busy but good week with temps in the 70's for the most part. It's been cool in the evenings and mornings though and definitely feels like fall. More trees are starting to turn and leaves are falling- October has its own beauty with the fall colors. The air is crisp and cider and doughnuts are definitely on the menu. There's a place not too far away that has the best doughnuts this time of year- I think I need a box.

Reading hasn't been too bad although I'm back on Netflix- a lot of new episodes have arrived so I'm catching up. I had a discussion post this week on When Do You Review and next week I'll be talking about Nostalgia Reads.  

Otherwise this week kinda went by fast after a slow start. I read Replica this week and should have a review up soon. And I think The Wanderers will be my next read. I just saw this week that The Pack, a follow up to The Wanderers, is due in 2017. 

Best wishes to anyone impacted by the hurricane down in Florida or anywhere else. I hope everyone has a great weekend.  

Replica (Replica, #1)The Wanderers (The Wanderers, #1)Fear the Drowning Deep

And I'm listening to...




Iron Fist  is coming in March.

  1. I love fall! It's cooler at night so I sleep really well, and nature shows us a symphony of colors before it all falls down and winter arrives.
    I just ordered a copy of Replica this morning. I am very curious about it, and I sure hope you enjoyed it!
    Have a wonderful weekend and happy reading (and Netflix-ing) ;)

  2. I have Replica now and it's so beautiful! Definitely excited to read it soon! Love those pirate images. Did you see the trailer for the new Pirates of the Caribbean film?

  3. I wish our leaves would start to turn here. I feel they should have already. I love cider and doughnuts. They have the best apple cider donuts at the apple picking place near us. I might have to get some now!! Have a great week!

    1. Cider and doughnuts are best! And once someone mentions them then I have to have them, so I understand. :)

  5. I look forward to reading your review for Replica. That one is on my TBR right now. Mmm, I tried cider doughnuts for the first time last fall and can't wait to head back out to the mountains to pick apples this year and get more of those incredible doughnuts.

    1. It should be up soon. Isn't it amazing how doughnuts can be so good? I don't know what it is but this time of year helps. :)

  6. We were a little farther north for a few days this week and I really enjoyed the 70s and low 80s temperatures! We're back in the high 80s but I don't think it's going to last much longer. Love the art you shared this week. The one with the pirate ship seen through the cave is amazing. Have a great week!

    1. Isn't that a cool pic? I saw it and I was kinda awed by the moss and jsut the green of it. Sounds like you guys had a nice getaway, glad the temps cooperated.

  7. I'm very excited about Iron Fist coming to Netflix! I've been quite pleased with their Marvel shows so far, especially Jessica Jones. This is going to be awesome :)

  8. I need to get myself on Netflix here. I know I keep saying that and I need to get my act together but (frankly) I'm tired of doing stuff. My brother had talked about coming up to see my new house in a couple of weeks and I'm hoping he does as I think I'll ask him to sort it out. I think I've mentioned before I have an older TV (no Netflix app) so need an Apple TV thing to hook it all up. I guess buying that would be a help!

    PS. It's started to get warmer here - almost 30C days... *sigh*

    1. It's always a pain figuring that stuff out... I do like Netflix though just for the sheer amount of shows they have. It beats cable for me, although I don't know what the Australian version is like.

      Getting hot? Wouldn't it be nice if we could just have a happy medium for a while??

  9. I love that image of Rivendell! Such a pretty place, I wish it were real. I'm curious about Replica, though I have not had good luck with the author's books in the past.

    Have a lovely week, Greg. =)

    1. I do too! I like that version of it... but I can look at Rivendell images all day ha ha!I'd love to go there.

      Replica is okay so far, not blowing me away yet but I'm hoping it picks up.

      Delete
  10. It is definitely feeling more like fall here, too, although the temps still go up and down. Not as hot as it was, though.

    Loved the movie The Girl on the Train.

    I have been mostly absent from Netflix this week, but I did start with one episode of a new-to-me show, Shameless.

    Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  11. I am curious to see what you think of Replica. No fall foliage yet, despite the cooler temps. Knock on wood our A/C has been off all week. We did have a few soggy days though. We are continue to watch the Exorcist, but nothing else new. Have a lovely week Greg:)

    1. You too! It rained here to a bit, and we had soem nice weather. And some not so nice. Definitely fall. I have mixed feelings on Replica so far, not bad just not stellar. Writing the review should be interesting.

  12. Mmm cider and donuts, that sounds amazing! I haven't had either of those in a long time. And the 70s is perfect weather!

    Enjoy all your new Netflix episodes, and I'm still waiting for that review for The Wanderers, haha. Have a great week!

    1. Cider and doughnuts are amazing this time of year, and this place over here has the best! I'll get like a box of doughnuts and a jug of cider and I'm good lol I love 70's, if it could stay that way all year round I'd be happy. :)

      Review? What review?? Oh yeah... it's coming. Eventually. :)

  14. Ooooo I want to watch Evolution. I ned to read Replica, but I haven't been in the mood for it. I hate when that happens with review books. I want a doughnut too!

  15. October is definitely a beautiful month. I love all those gorgeous colors on the trees and the cold mornings.
    I’ll check out your discussion posts this week. I definitely would like to do more myself.
    Have a great week! ;)

  16. I can't wait for the leaves to change here! (Really, I just can't wait for snow, so I want to hurry fall along!). Have a wonderful week!

  17. They told us fall was coming here last night. It's early morning and I haven't looked yet. Fingers crossed.

  20. I love fall! We had a warm snap this past week with temps back in the 80s minus the humidity of summer so it wasn't as bad as I was expecting. Looking forward to cooler temps this weeks.
    I love that picture of the pirate cove! It reminds me of Peter Pan for some reason. Hope you have a great week! Happy reading :)

  21. I'm looking forward to your review of Replica as I am interested and have read one other book by the same author which I enjoyed. I haven't been on Netflix but have been caught up,with other new shows like west world and designated survivor.

    ReplyDelete
  22. As ever, the artwork you chose blew me away - the picture of the stranded mermaid is disturbingly poignant and beautiful. I'm very intrigued by Replica - as you say, the physical book is the preferred option, but I'm guessing it won't be cheap. I'll be fascinated to see what you make of it. Hope you have a great week, Greg:)

    ReplyDelete
  23. The days have been nice here but it is down right cold at night and in the early morning and I don't like it...lol.

    Netflix sure is on a comic book hero kick it seems! Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and now Iron Fist. :)

    Have a great week!

  24. No trees turning yet but the weather has dropped quite a but today it will be in the 50's all day but it's raining. Nice day to stay inside and read :)

    I am debating whether to read Replica during the 24 hour or wait until next week, I really, really, want to read it.

    Have a great week, Greg! Happy Reading!

  33. I read The Wanderers. I am curious as to what you will think. Our weather has been rainy, but pretty much the same as yours temperature wise. I need to check and see if we are going to be affected by Matthew. I thought it had gone out to sea, but my cousin in North Carolina got hit today. They are all okay tgiugh. We seem to either have cider or doughnuts, but never at the same time. Ha ha. I need to remedy this by Halloween. Have a wonderful new week. :)

    1. What did you think of the Wanderers? I'm hoping it will be good- Heather liked it if I recall (think that's where I saw it) but I've seen mixed reviews too...

  51. I am so loving the cooler fall weather! I need to get ahold of Replica and read it, it just sounds so good! I always love all the pictures and maps you share. I like that you're coming up with your own cover characteristics. I may do the same for November ahead of time, because I'm trying to get my posts done ahead of time as much as possible so I can participate in National Novel Writing Month. Hope you have a great week, and thanks for stopping by my Sunday Post!
