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 #86

 I'm participating in The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer; Showcase Sunday hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea; Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews, Bought Borrowed and Bagged, hosted by TalkSupe, and Library Loot co-hosted by The Captive Reader and Silly Little Mischief. All of these memes give book bloggers the chance to share print and digital books they've received, and the posts and events at their blogs.

It was a quiet week on the blog but a busy week for me with editing. Still no physical therapy for me until I see the doctor. Happily, that happens Tuesday morning. The weather has been lovely most days, sunny, dry and low 70's; my kind of weather. :) Saturday it rained all day so I read and I edited, oh and snuggled with Goof.

ETA noon 4/27: I've double checked this post, my blog layout, and blog settings and only this post seems to have been affected by the wonky sidebars. I even did a test post. I have no explanation for what happened.

ETA 2 3:10PM 4/27: Oh hey, sidebars are back! Go home Blogger, you're drunk. :D But let me keep the sidebars!

The Week In Review

Odd, interesting, or funny search phrases leading to the blog: Hah hah, quite a combo: "christian dating online austin texas", "erotic romance 2014", "free dirty flirting love quotes", and "photos gambar threesome" I have no clue where the last one came from but together they all make me laugh.


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


This was a gift from the author. He and I are facebook friends and I went to school with his sister.


I got the print book from the library last summer and barely made a dent in it before it was due. Last week, the Kindle book was a Kindle Daily Deal so I snatched it up and now I can read it at my convenience. :)


A new book by a favorite author. :)

Review Consideration

Kindle Freebies

"Lake Dreams" is free on Amazon through April 29th, if you want to pick up a copy. 

Did you add any books to your shelves or e-readers last week? Leave a link to your Sunday Post so I can visit you during the week.


  1. The dude on the cover of Lake Dreams is huge.

    Hey, just wanted to give you a heads up if you don't already know, but your blog is acting odd. Everything that should be in the sidebars is all at the bottom.

  2. The searches for your blog ..slay me! The Hanging Tree look good, and I hope things go well on Tuesday!

  3. Sunny and low 70's... I would take some of that weather. :) We're still 50s/60's mostly.

    I like the cover of Murder at Honeychurch Hall, looks like a good one. Sherpa Holmes looks interesting too...

    1. We've had some good weather in Iowa this week, Greg and Bea. There was a storm over night so the temps dropped, but Friday and Saturday were beautiful.

      Have a great week!

  4. OO thanks for the heads up on Lake Dreams! Totally grabbed a copy :)

    And yup with Christy things aren't where they should be. So weird! Hope it's an easy fix!

  5. Lovely books! I am curious about The Hanging Tree...and lake Dreams. Going to check it out!

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  6. The search phrases are so great, they make me laugh ! The guy on the Lake cover is big !!!! Have a great reading week ;)

  7. I'm so far behind with Kitty! I have all the books so far but I've only read the first one! I think I'll need to re-read it when I go to catch up on the series. I really need to get caught up on a ton of stuff but I need more hours in the day! Thanks for visiting me!

  8. I'm glad you're having lovely weather. We're struggling with rain all the time here. I really hope we get some sun soon. You've got some really interesting books and I really hope you'll enjoy them. Great post! :)

    Here is our Sunday Post!

  9. lots of interesting titles that you got. Glad you have good weather. some of your books are new to me I will have 2 look them up.

    books of love

  10. Nice looking assortment of books! I hope you enjoy them all. I'm envious of your lovely weather. We are having lots of rain. Come see what I got this week at Ms. Martin Teaches Media and Inside of a Dog. Happy reading!

  11. I added way too many books to my piles this week. I had no willpower other than to restrict them to sales and freebies (and galleys). And now, I'm going to look at Lake Dreams. (See! No willpower at all!) I hope you have a great week and enjoy your books!
    The Sunday Post [15]: So Many Books!

  16. Don't you just love the funny things that blogger sometimes does? Though I've had some trouble with Wordpress on some things but I'm still figuring it out. It looks like you got some great books this week!

  17. You got some interesting books this week & kindle daily deals are the best! happy sunday!

  18. Yes, Blogger does like to tipple occasionally! lol I need to check out Pennsylvania's Finest. Have a great week!

  19. Pennsylvania's Finest looks really good. Have a great week!

  20. I love the search terms for your blog! Mine are all variations on "Discovery of Witches movie" because for some reason, a blog post I did on that is really high up in Google's search results. But I'd love to have some more unusual terms!

    I hope you get to start your PT soon. And hurrah for gorgeous weather! Such a nice change after the winter we had.

  21. Snuggling and reading does sound good! Enjoy your new books Bea. Hope you get to the Doc's soon!
