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 #155

 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.

Done with summer subbing! I'm not scheduled to work again for a while so I'm hoping that this week I'll be able wrap up car shopping.

I had to laugh Saturday night. A friend who lives up the road was out for an evening walk and saw an ambulance turn into my condominium complex. She immediately whipped out her cell phone and called me, "You better not be having an asthma attack!" LOL No, no asthma attack. The ambulance wasn't there for me; it was parked in front of the building next to mine. I hope my neighbor is okay and I'm grateful to my friend for checking on me even as her comment made me laugh.

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.

Thanks for visiting and happy reading! :)


  1. That's funny. My mom lives in a condo and most of the residents are seniors, she's one of the younger but it's not uncommon for there to be ambulances there and it gets everyone talking.

    Good luck with the car! Hope you're enjoying the end of sumer... the Cornwell book looks good, and so does the Frankie Bow one.

  2. An Apple Away looks quite kinky. So glad it wasn't you and an asthma attack. Enjoy your downtime and good luck with the car hunt.

  3. I have so done that with friends when I've seen an ambulance or firetruck going in where they live. I've lost quite a few friends, so I get a little anxious about that kind of stuff. Glad you're okay though, and pe your neighbor is. Enjoy your books!

  4. It's so good to have friends caring so much about you, her reaction is heartwarming :) Angela Adams, she was the one who wrote that book with the sexy cover, Spellweaver, I recognize her name ! I wish you a fruitful car hunting, have a great weekend Bea :)

  5. Well I'm glad the ambulance wasn't for you! Lucky you answered your phone, your friend would have really panicked if you didn't!
    I think The Embroidered Corpse looks fascinating, I have to check it out on GR to see what it's about.
    Enjoy your week :)

  6. Aw, it's great to have a friend like that :D Have a great week! :)

  7. Glad you are okay. I read Flesh and Blood too. I'm going to hop over there and check out your review. You also have some good looking giveaways I'm going to check out.

  8. Glad it wasn't you the ambulance was visiting! But I agree it's lovely your friend cared enough to check!

    Good luck with the car shopping - hope you have some success now you have more time!

  9. You got some great ones to review! I will be getting Chapelwood to review once it comes out on audio. :) I am kind of curious how it will be.

    Enjoy your reads!

  10. That's funny but really nice of your friend to check on you :) I like the look of the Angela Addams and Sara Daniels books. Have a great week.

  11. I a glad you weren't having an asthma attack. The meds leave me feeling worse than the attack - but breathing is kind of important.

  12. Good luck on car shopping :)
    I hope you enjoy your new books, I like the look of Chapelwood

  13. That is funny, I am glad it wasn't you. There was a fire close to my house (I was driving home) and the direction the smoke was coming from I thought it was my house. I drove so fast to get home and when I realized it wasn't us I was so happy. I told my house "OMG Thank god, the house isn't on fire" The look on his face made me laugh for hours.

    Good luck with car shopping, we are down to one car at the moment and maybe next year will be enjoying that hell of looking :)

    Have a great week Bea! Happy Reading ox

  14. I'm glad it wasn't you in the ambulance. Ambulances always make me nervous. You got some great looking books.

  15. That's what friends are for, to care while making you laugh :) Glad you're ok though! Also, your strange search term made me laugh! Mine are never that interesting. Your books look great this week and I hope the car shopping goes well! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great upcoming week!

  16. I'm glad it wasn't you having an asthma attack but it was definitely sweet of your friend to call you right away! I have exercise induced asthma and have been struggling with it lately as I try to figure out a workout plan that is fast enough to do anything but not so fast that I quit being able to breathe! Good luck with the car shopping! I hope you find something you really like. I'm hoping mine makes it a few more years but I am looking forward to having something a little newer and a little smaller! Chapelwood looks really interesting! Hope you enjoy your new books and have a great week!

  17. I love those crazy moments that make you laugh. Love good friends.

  18. Interesting books on your stacks! Enjoy...and I'm glad that you weren't having an asthma attack. I also have asthma, but knock wood, have had it pretty much under control for a while, with my maintenance meds.

    Enjoy your week...and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  19. Hi! This is my first time taking part in The Sunday Post, but I knew I recognised your blog - I was on Kelley Armstrong's forums too, and part of her online writing group :D My name was Aurelia on there.

    I obviously know of Angela Addams's book ;) But the others you've mentioned are new to me, I'll check them out.

  20. I hope you'll have time to go car shopping too, Bea!
    Your new books this week look amazing, I'm so curious about Chapelwood! I hope you'll enjoy both that and your other books.
    Have a fantastic week ahead and happy reading.

  21. Valiant Heart sounds good. Hope that you enjoy and have a great upcoming week.

  22. Yay to Chapelwood! I'm surprised I got approved as they denied me the first one last time. lol

    Happy to know that you weren't the one with the emergency. Happy Sunday, Bea!

  23. That's great the ambulance for you, but very sweet of your friend! :) It looks like you got some great titles. Chapelwood sounds awesome - but I need the first!


  24. That is funny and good to hear it wasn't you that need the ambulance! I've been wanting to read the Borden series. I hope you enjoy your new books! Good luck with selling your car and have a great week!

  25. You better not be starting with asthma already! NOOOOOO!!! You just got healthy!

    What is up with Chapelwood, huh? Everyone has that this week! I'm going to see what the hubbub is all about ;) Fantastic haul this week, girlie!!!

    Stay away from the dust!!

  26. I'm glad you're done subbing. It's hard to believe summer is nearly done though. You got some interesting looking books--especially The Embroidered Corpse. What an interesting title! Have fun reading, Bea!

  27. Lol, I'm glad you're okay. Chaplewood has been popping up everywhere this weekend!

    I hope you have an awesome week this week, and happy reading!

  28. Hehe! Hard to answer the phone while having an asthma attack, but it is great that she cared to call! Have a great week Bea!
