Sunday Book Share #29

I'm participating in Feed My Reader Friday hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A WriterThe Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer, and Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews. These  memes allow book bloggers the chance to share print and digital books they've received, and different posts and events at their blogs.

More frigging snow. Sigh. At least I got a day off out of it. Although the foot of snow wasn't the best thing for the daffodils that were blooming. :( I like daffodils, they're one of my favorite flowers. Despite the snow I had a busy week at work, with prepping for our annual art show and taking a workshop on play. At home, I've started doing some spring cleaning and organizing, and shared some books with a friend. 

The Week In Review







Take Control of Your TBR Pile Challenge:  Holiday Buzz by Cleo Coyle
Written in Stone by Ellery Adams - review to come

Odd phrase that led to the blog:  "shadow of the damned 3d model" - I think this might refer to a photo I posted of a 3D lung model.
"circus things that make the letter g" - this probably refers to an alphabet book I reviewed several years ago.

Upcoming This Week

Blog Tours - Guest Post by Romance Author Grace Marshall
Giveaway & Spotlight on Alpha Me Not by Jianne Carlo
Spotlight on Ixeos by Jennings Wright
Cover Reveal for As Hard As It Gets by Laura Kaye

    1. They're changing covers already? :D I liked the blurb, it was interesting and seems humorous. We're supposed to get more snow this week but just a few inches. At this rate, we'll have snow on the ground for Easter. :(

  6. The Sisterhood looks amazing, Bea! Caught my eye straight away! Looks like you had a very busy week too! Like you we had enormous amounts of snow here - couple of heavy blizzards, but had to work anyway. This weather really worries me. Nothing can grow in such temperatures :(
    Anyway, I hope you enjoy all your wonderful reads and the upcoming art show *hugs*

  9. They are saying snow for us tomorrow, but it doesn't sound like much. Still...it's officially spring and I don't want anymore snow! LOL

    I really want to get back to reading the Cleo Coyle books. I love them.

    Have a great week!

    1. I'm with you Yvonne, no more snow!

      I've tried several of Coyle's books and they just don't work for me. Ah well.

  10. Even though it rains a buttload here in Oregon I will take rain any day over snow especially this late in the year. I don't miss those March and April snow storms one bit! I love the Cleo Coyle series and I need to get back to it soon. I know what you mean about the freebies I kind of quit downloading them because I never get around to reading them, but every once in awhile I see a good one and snatch it up! Have a great week, Bea!

    1. I'm ready for spring rains! I'm even ready for pollen, sneezing and congestion. :D

      Yeah, I'm trying to ease up on the freebies. I need to be a vampire to have enough time to read them all. :D

  12. Daffodils are my mum's favourite flower too! But yes, this snow isn't ideal for them is it? :-( At least you have some good looking books for curling up inside with while it snows. Dial C for Chihuahua looks fun! Enjoy, and have a lovely week!

  15. Wow, that's quite a haul this week! I loved your search terms -- definitely unusual. And the title of A Murder at Rosamund's Gate is decidedly intriguing.

    Have a wonderful week, and I hope things warm up for you soon.
