The Sunday Post: Finally! She is Here!

This week, I once again, participate in THE SUNDAY POST from The Caffeinated Reviewer. I have found this a great way to meet other bloggers and to keep track of what I have going on. I hope you’ll check out THE CAFFEINATED REVIEWER ‘s weekly event – there are so many great blogs participating.


Kimba The Sunday Post

Finally!  The weather has turned the corner and I believe we have pulled out of what was the worst winter in my memory.  Now, I grew up in Albany, NY so I have seen some horrible winters! So when I say this was the worst winter I mean it was truly awful.

But, enough of that, Spring is showing her beautiful face again; the 9 bazillion Daffodils I planted last fall have begun to show themselves and I feel so much happier for having seen that yesterday when I pulled the winter covers off the new flower bed.

A friend of mine turned me on to this local performer, Spencer Albee, who’s about  to hit the big time!

Last week I got a couple of print books in:
The new Katie MacAlister A MIDSUMMER’S NIGHT ROMP, and
a paperback of  THE WITCH WITH NO NAME by Kim Harrison.

On my way out of town the other week, immediately after I finished listening to the audiobook copy, I received a hardcover copy of THE SHADOWS. I will eventually put it in a giveaway but not with this week’s review.

I got E-ARCs of Caroline Linden’s LOVE IN THE TIME OF SCANDAL,  and ALL’S FAIR IN LOVE AND SCANDAL last week as well.

I won an Allison Tyler book bundle giveaway from  — I hadn’t won anything in a while so it was a lift! Can’t wait until they arrive!

Last Week on the Blog!

Question MarkListening:
I am having HUGE issues with one publisher’s Audio-ARC downloads so I am a little short of things to listen to.  I may need to buy an audio book and wonder if anyone has suggestions for longer audio books?  I like long (Audio) books and I cannot lie!  If I am paying for it I want it to be worth it!
