Sunday Post #24

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. 

A really quiet week on the blog as I’ve expended most of my energy on staying warm – the best way to do that is snuggling up with a book (or two) and a cat (or two). Temperatures dropped down to 20 degrees Celsius (68 degrees Fahrenheit) which had me diving for my winter woolies and ruing the day I moved five hours south. Brrr! In other breaking news, my mother and I baked and iced 90 mini cupcakes. The heat from the oven kept our little hands frostbite free 🙂

I haven’t written the review yet but if you are in the mood for a really good cozy paranormal mystery, you can’t go past Heather Blake’s A Wishcraft Mystery series. She has a real flair when it comes to bringing characters and the town to life so they are a delight to read.

Seanan McGuire’s latest was interesting but suffered from a huge amount of repetition as the book itself is a series of short stories rather than a cohesive whole. I liked the overall premise and there were some nifty twists but the repetition killed the mood a bit for me.

  1. It’s been kinda cold here too- the sun was out but then you go outside and it’s actually pretty cold. Still waiting for warm weather… glad you had a good read this week. I enjoyed your Top Ten DNF post too, I tried the Dresden series and had trouble getting through first book, and have thought about re-trying but with so much else out there not sure that I will.

    • You might like the Benedict Jacka series which has a similar vibe but is more effective or even Kevin Hearne’s series which I absolutely adore.

    • My grandmother lives in the Midlands and she’s bracing for a heatwave of 25 degrees Celsius so I guess it’s all relative. I don’t know how she stands it when it drops down to single digits.
