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 #95

 I'm participating in The Sunday Post, hosted by 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 are about sharing the print and digital books received and/or posts and events on the blog.

Last week was better I'm happy to say. Still no A/C or new job but a nice week nonetheless. Friday night, I went out for dinner with several friends for our annual joint birthday celebration. I'm in April and they're both in June so we usually celebrate in the summer. One friend gave me a plate I had admired at a store we were browsing in earlier in the day (she was quite sneaky and managed to buy it without my seeing). It's part of a set and I want the whole set. Yes, I'm a word nerd. :P

The Week In Review

Odd, interesting, or funny search phrases leading to the blog:  Some new ones! "are there going to be any more iron fey books", "images about she lit the match quotes", and "the devil in hell". Where else would the devil be? :D "threesome" made a reappearance after taking a break for a few weeks. :D

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

A smallish week last week, which is fine with me. I did fail with the review books though. I got an email from NetGalley saying I was pre-approved and I succumbed. :) I also got two in for blog tours.


Review Consideration

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. Oh, I love those plates!

    And I am going to add the Marcia Clark books...I've been curious.

    Thanks for visiting my blog, and enjoy your week. Hope you get A/C soon!

    1. Aren't those plates great? I as so excited and surprised when my friend gave me one. :)

      I have high hopes for the Clark books. Let's hope they are good!

  2. Sorry to hear about the no AC. It can be a nightmare to fix stuff. I have to fix an oil leak in my car soon. UGHH. The thinking woman's guide to real magic looks good!!

  3. Those plates are very nice. Very unique.
    Hope you have a great week Bea and thanks for visiting my blog.
    Sharon @ Sharon's Book Nook!

  4. Smallish weeks can be good... I've been curious about the McGuire books... The Thinking Woman's Guide is supposed to be good too.

    Stay cool!

  5. Oh I love the plate and set. I am a nerd and nerds are cool, so I hope you get the set. Guilt by Association looks good. Enjoy and I hope both the A/C and job situation look up!

  6. I'm glad your week was better. And what a sneaky good friend! :)

  7. Nice plate, hope you manage to get them all. And that the A/C is finally fixed ! Have a great week ;)

  8. Interesting plate and set! They look really cool! Have a great week ahead!


  9. I love that plate, it is so nice to catch up with friends, and I always remind myself should do it more often.

  10. Those place are wonderful!
    I hope you had a good Birthday celebration :)
    Have a good week!

  11. I enjoyed Thinking Woman's Guide. I loved the prose. I got a bunch of new books last week - from publishers. I wanted to know what happened in a series so I joined Audible and in the free trial got Rude Awakenings and Written in my Own Heart's Blood. I needed some new audios to work with but WIMOHB is 45 hours long. And delicious!

  12. Pre-approval on NetGalley is my downfall! SO many books, so little time!
    Grea haul, and I love the plate!
    Cora @ Tea Party Princess

  13. No A/C I would die! Lol my family yells at me because I keep the house so cold in the summer and the windows open in the winter. I can't help it I like the cold. I hope they fix it for you soon!

    I love the plate and I love the mugs. I have so many coffee mugs but I keep buying them. Those are super cute!

    Enjoy your new reads!
    Have a great week Bea!!!

  14. Those plates are awesome. No A/C. I would die if that was the case. I see that you got the Shannon Stacey book. Love her books. Net Galley is bad for me and I'm trying next month to avoid it.

    Books of Love

  15. I'm glad you had a nice week. Love those plates. I've been trying so hard to stay away from Netgalley and then I saw the pre-approved email about the Marcia Clark books and I was done. LOL
