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 #166

http://caffeinatedbookreviewer.com/category/sunday-post Sunday Book Share #166, Bought Borrowed & Tagged, meme, Bea's Book Nook

 I'm participating in The Sunday Post, hosted by Caffeinated Book ReviewerStacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews; and Bought Borrowed and Bagged, hosted by TalkSupe. It's a chance to share the print and digital books we've received and posts and events on the blog.

The weather was unseasonably warm, hitting the low 70s. While it was nice to have the warmer temps, my allergies were acting up and I had a sinus headache most of the week. Thursday was my father's birthday, the first since he died; he was on my mind all day.

I fell asleep on the couch almost every night last week. I'm still adjusting to my new work schedule; the blog schedule may go kablooey while adjust. :D 

The Week In Review

Odd, interesting, or funny search phrases leading to the blog: "cat on kitchen counter meme", "how to cat", and "erotic excerpts from books involving threesomes"


BOOKS! - click on the cover to go the book's goodreads page

It was the week for books; I had a downright deluge of books, lol. Just when I was making progress on the TBR pile, sigh. Today I have a pile of books to pick up at the library, increasing my pile even more.

This was a gift from one of the members in Pamela's FB group. :) 

Avon Addicts


Books, a really nice tote bag, candy and bookmarks; lots of fun stuff. I'll do a giveaway for several copies of "Broken" by Cynthia Eden and the copy of "A Ghostly Murder" by Tonya Kappes so keep an eye out for that.

A Ghostly Murder by Tonya Kappes
Broken by Cynthia Eden
Forbidden by Beverly Jenkins
Lady Bridget's Diary by Maya Rodale
The Match of the Century by Cathy Maxwell
My American Duchess by Eloisa James

Purchased

http://beasbooknook.blogspot.com/2015/11/cat-thursday-goofs-on-mission.html

Only 99 cents for 7 books, how could I resist? Two of the authors, Charles de Lint and Krista D. Ball, are faves of mine, and one book, MUCH ADO ABOUT MACBETH by Randy McCharles, I've had my eye on for a while.

Review 

I squealed when "Chimera" showed up in my mailbox. Grant is a top-notch writer and this series is wonderful.

  1. We had 70's here too, and sun- it was nice! Not like November at all! That was the last hurrah though I'm sure... it was 20 degrees cooler than that today. You did get a ton of books.

  2. The Avon box is awesome, I loved getting those. Adjusting schedules is hard, and I do hope your allergies are alleviated soon. Enjoy your haul and have a restful Sunday!

    1. I think the allergies are partly due to being tired. Hopefully they'll settle down as I adjust. The Avon boxes are awesome; I'm enjoying them.

  4. Sorry to hear about your sinus trouble and of course being reminded of your dad's passing. I remember the year of 'firsts' after my dad passed away (first birthday / Father's Day / Christmas etc without him).

    Sounds like you took care of yourself which is all you can do at times like that. xxx

    1. Yeah, the 'firsts' are hard; the holidays will be a challenge. My sinuses should clear up soon; I hope so anyway!

  5. "how to cat" LOL!
    Hate those days when you are so tired that you just snooze off as sit as you hit the couch. Hope you adjust to your new routine soon and I hope the job is going well too.
    The first birthday must have been really hard :(

    1. Thanks Trish. Yes, the 'firsts' are hard but, just as with the new job, eventually I'll adjust.

  6. I so wish I could be an Avon Addict... unfortunately, they don't ship overseas :(
    Your new books look great, and I was strangely attracted to Divine Grace and added it to my maybe list on Goodreads ;)
    Have a fantastic week ahead and happy reading, Bea!

  14. Our daytime highs are in the 70s, which feels wonderful to me.

    When I was still working full time outside my home, I often fell asleep on the couch. I don't know that I could have blogged back then...

    Enjoy your new books...and thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. Yeah, blogging and working full-time is tiring. I'll need to do some juggling and come up with a new routine.

  15. I was only excited to get the new Eloisa James this week. Otherwise I mostly got series books I am behind on....
    Story of my Life!
    I used to nap all day and couldn;t sleep at night - turns out to have been some meds I was on. Now sleep all night and occasionally sleep during the day; I figure that if I am that tired I need it to stave off a virus.

    1. Meds will mess you up every time. Prednisone always screws up my sleep. A few more weeks and my body should have adapted to my new schedule.

  16. Oooh, you had such a great week for books!! I am a newbie blogger-today is my first Sunday post, and just got my first book for review, very excited about that, but you sure did add to my TBR!!

  17. Hey! How is the new job?!?! I always got headaches from just the stress of starting a new job. Toss in this crazy weather and you couldn't win :( I hope you're feeling better now and resting today!

    Eh, screw the TBR I say!! Awesome books! I must look into this Avon addicts thingy ;)

    1. So far, so good! I do think the stress of a new job is partly behind my headaches.

      Yes, the next time Avon is taking applicants, you should apply! You'd love it.

  18. Oops. My threesome (and moresome) addiction is showing again. *eyes Divine Grace with longing*

    The weather here can't make up its mind. But at least I haven't had the A/C or heat on for weeks and weeks. My wallet is very happy! :D

    1. Sigh, you and your search phrases. :D

      I think you'd like Divine Grace but the sale is over and it's full price again. I've had the heat on a whopping three days so far this fall and I'm loving it.

  19. The weather was warm here too and my sinuses are KILLING me. Loving all the books you got!

  22. The Avon Addicts bag is awesome! I'm hoping your headache has gone away. I had one off and on all week because of our crazy weather but I'm hoping it will not decide to stick around this week! I'm sorry for your loss and I know your dad's birthday definitely made it feel a bit fresher. Hopefully you thought of lots of really nice memories of him and didn't feel too sad. Have a great week and good luck with your new schedule!

  24. Our weather has been all over the place, I just don't know what to expect anymore. But I'll take 70s! I'm sure your dad's b-day was a difficult day for you - especially with his passing being so recent - I'm so sorry for your loss. Good luck with the headache, these suckers sure know how to hang on!! Enjoy the Avon bag, looks like lots of goodies :)

  27. Enjoy your warm days, you know winter is not far off. We have been getting lots of rain here in the NW, but we need it after our hot, dry summer. Glad you are enjoying your job even if it is wearing you out. I still need to read the MIra Grant and the Faith Hunter series, both are on in my TBR.

    1. Oh, you have to read Mira Grant. She's got two fantastic series. Hopefully your rain doesn't cause any flooding.
