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 #3




I'm participating in both The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews. Each meme allows book bloggers the chance to share books they've received, and different posts and events at their blog. 

So, I've been somewhat inactive the past few weeks. The new school year is kicking my butt; I'm exhausted every day, and every night I end up falling asleep on the couch. I've also still been recovering from my surgery; there were lingering side effects. Happily, those finally cleared up last week, just in time for surgery number 2 on Tuesday. I have some blog tours in the next few weeks but otherwise the blog will probably continue to be on the quiet side. My focus right now needs to be on my jobs and my health. 


Excerpt: The Soul Within, an erotic paranormal romance

Review: Beneath A Rising Moon, posted at Romance at Random



Giveaway: Silver Borne by Patricia Briggs (now over)


Review



I was particularly excited to receive The Purple Shroud and Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf. The latter is a revised version of the graphic novel originally issued by Dynamite Entertainment; the new version is put out by InkLit, Berkley's new graphic novel division. The Purple Shroud is the continuation of Empress Theodora's story; I read and reviewed the first book last fall and have been anxiously waiting for this book. I'm not usually a historical fan but that book grabbed me.

Won


I have two of this book actually: I got an eGalley from the publisher and also won it at goodreads. Heh, I guess I really wanted it. :D

Library


There was a lot of talk about this series and author on twitter and I decided to give it a try. I'm reading it now and enjoying it.

Bought


It's Iron Druid, nuff said. :D

I also downloaded many kindle freebies; in one day alone I got 20 of them. Ooops. 

I'll try to get around to your blogs this week, it will depend on how I feel. Have a great week and don't forget to leave the link to your sharing post.

    1. The gargoyle caught my eye too; I'm a gargoyle fan. I have a bunch in my living room.

      The start of a new school is always tiring but this year even more so as I'm with younger groups this year. They are wearing me out physically and emotionally. A few more weeks and things should settle down.

  2. Ashes and Wine looks great. Plus the title reminds me of a song I love :)
