The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news with a post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog. Stacking the Shelves is held at Tynga’s Reviews and is a place to share the books you’ve gotten in the last week.

  1. I have to go check out Sea Glass Sunrise. Curious what the cover looks like and what it’s about. A new author to me too. Thanks for sharing you new books:)

    • It’s a beautiful cover and it’s what pulled me in originally. Unfortunately it has nothing to do with the story. It should really be a wine glass pyramid!

  2. Looks like a busy week of reading here Elizabeth. I wonder what you will think of the Donna Kaufman book, my finger hovered over that one on NetGalley but decided to request less, so I can read more of those books in the TBR pile. Will you review the Emilie Richards book?

    • I went for the Donna Kauffman because I read the first trilogy Bachelors of Blueberry Cove, although I am a little put-out with her. If you’ve read them you know there’s a little mystical storyline about the antique shop and she didn’t wrap it up in the first trilogy. So I had vowed not to read her any more, but I caved when I saw there was a follow up, in hopes of finding out what’s going on in that antique store. I wasn’t planning to review Happiness Key because I have so many ARCs to get to, but I definitely recommend it. More than the Kauffman, actually!

  3. I was also tempted to request The Canterbury Sisters but I have so many ARCs to read. It really looks good and nice to hear you are enjoying it. Have a great week and thank you for stopping by my blog!

  4. I almost requested The Canterbury Sisters from Net Galley but I have so many ARC’s to get through… I am like a kid in a candy shop when it comes to books! Let me know how you like The Canterbury Sisters. Have a great week.

    • I am a too-quick clicker, also. I was feeling a little overwhelmed with NetGalley a couple of weeks ago, but I’m good now. Only 2 more to finish and then I’m free until mid-August, although I’ll keep reading in case something good becomes available that I HAVE to get. I really like Canterbury Sisters, although I was “meh” on Love in Mid Air, which she also wrote.

    • The cover really appealed to me too, Greg. But it actually has nothing to do w/ the book. There’s not very much tea-drinking, but lots of wine! Either way, it drew me in to a good story!
