BEA'S BOOK NOOK "I can't imagine a man really enjoying a book and reading it only once." C. S. Lewis “If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.” ― Oscar Wilde

Sunday Book Share #52

 
 

I'm participating in The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer; Showcase Sunday hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea; 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.

Eeep! It's September! I can't believe it's autumn now, though it's not officially autumn until the solstice. Last week was prep week at school for the new year and on Tuesday the children arrive. As I mentioed before, September is physically and emotionally exhausting so I may not be around much.

The Week In Review







Odd or interesting search phrases for the blog: "asthmatic lungs", "execution"!, "least favorite warrior cat"?, "thursday coffee photos", "how to catch a cat", "las golondrinas convent spain" (The Sisterhood by Helen Bryan), "sexks", and "the iron fey deel 4".

I got an email about this and thought it sounded interesting. I enjoy learning about other educational approaches. 

Review - Print


"Smoke" was an unsolicited review; my review of "The Stranger You Know" will go up later this month.

Review Consideration - Print


I read the first few Anna Strong books and they didn't do anything for me. I've read the first four Dark Angels books and lost patience with them but the publisher keeps sending me ARCs. I may give books five and six a try, or not.
Review - Kindle


"Maddie's Choice" is for a November blog tour.
 
Kindle Freebies

Not a single one! I know, I know, somewhere hell has frozen over. O_o :D It's not as if I'm lacking for reading material however. :D

I'll try to visit this week but I can't promise. Happy reading!

  2. Hope the month goes smoothly for you, Bea.

    I have a couple of Andrea Kane books on my TBR but haven't gotten to them yet. Maybe this month?

    Enjoy your books.

    1. Yeah, I eased up my schedule for September so I could breathe and relax; toddlers are exhausting. :)

  6. Nice haul. No freebies. You have a lot of better self-control than I do. You got an amazing list of books in your pile. Come visit me as well.

    1. It was less a matter of self-control and more that nothing grabbed me, though I am getting pickier.

  9. Have a good first week with kids! We start on Tuesday too. I hope to be able to keep reading and blogging but this school year is also bringing lots of chances. I got The Stranger You Know for review this week too but I asked for the Kindle version.

    Come see what I got at Ms. Martin Teaches Media and Inside of a Dog. Happy reading!

  11. No Kindle freebies for me either! That's very rare - I should probably check Amazon and see if anything new just popped up. =)

  12. I can't believe it's September either! It's a kinda rough one here too. Hopefully it'll take it easy on us both :)

    very nice haul you had. I love Keri Arthur and Andrea Kane. Can't wait to hear what you think of that one :)

  18. Take care of you and we will be here when you get back. I am actually looking forward to temperatures cooling down, but we will not see much of that until at least October.

    Some awesome looking books in that haul, and yay for adding no freebies. I actually added LESS than I removed this week!

  19. I haven't read any of those, but they look great! I hope you enjoy all you got :)
