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 #142

 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; and Bought Borrowed and Bagged, hosted by TalkSupe. All of these memes are about sharing the print and digital books received and/or posts and events on the blog.

It's a holiday weekend and the official beginning of summer here in the US. I have no particular plans though I do have friends coming by today. Starting this Tuesday, I'll be putting in a lot of extra hours at the day job so I won't be online as much in June. I still have reviews to write and get up but I'm slowly making progress.

The Week In Review

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


I won this from Socrates' Book Reviews and Berkley Prime Crime.


The Holmes book was a Kindle Daily Deal, only 99 cents for a complete anthology of all Sherlock Holmes books. How could I resist?

Amazon Freebies

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.

Thanks for visiting and happy reading! :)


  1. Hope you have a great holiday weekend. The cozy looks cute, and the Sherlock collection and Spiraled look good too. Nice haul this week.

  2. I have been wanting to try out Slow Hand..hope you enjoy all of your books. They look great.

  3. The Sherlock Holmes collection was a great find! And the cats expression on Fillet of Murder makes me laugh :) Hope you enjoy your long weekend and all your new books.

  4. I don't think I've read any Dick Wolf novels. I'm assuming it's the Dick Wolf of TV Law & Order fame etc?


  5. I am so behind on writing my reviews! Hoping to start catching up this week. Enjoy all your new books!
    Have a great day and enjoy the week, Bea!

  6. Nice variety of a book haul. Do not work too hard. Bummer you will be putting in more hours during summertime.

    My Book Haul

  7. I liked Spiraled. I'm a big Sherlock Holmes fan too. I'll have to see if that anthology is still cheap. Happy reading and have a great week!

  8. All those covers look wonderful! I hope you have a great week and a great holiday weekend!

  9. Very good selection of books. I hope you love all your new books. They look great. Have a wonderful holiday weekend.

  10. Congrats on the Filet of Murder win. That looks like a good one! I'm tempted by that Holmes collection as well. I've heard that episodes of Sherlock are based on different actual Holmes stories and I have this dream of reading the story and then watching the episode. No idea if that will ever happen. Good luck with work this June and have a great week!

  11. I have both of your Harlequin books. I liked Midnight Thunder but have not read the other one yet.

  12. Great haul this week! The Sherlock Holmes collection looks amazing. Happy reading! :)

  13. I hope you have a fab weekend, you deserve it!

  14. I love the cat on the cover of Fillet of Murder, Bea! I hope you have a great week and fun reading all your good books.

  15. Great haul. Spiraled sounds intriguing. Have a great week!

  16. Enjoy your long weekend. We get one in a few weeks, can't wait!

    Here's my Weekly Wrap Up

    Michelle @ Book Briefs

  19. Oh, I missed that Sherlock Holmes collection! Fillet of Murder looks cute. Why are cats on covers so appealing? (Probably the same reason cat memes and cat videos are...)

    Good luck with the increased hours at your day job, and I hope you had a wonderful week!
