Sunday Post *********************************************************************************************************************

Randomness:

I’ve watched all the new series (season 3) of Sherlock twice now!  I love this series so much and if you haven’t seen it yet, all I will say is the last episode is the BEST ONE EVER!  I was on the edge of my seat the whole way through :O  The whole concept of making this high tech was just brilliant and the acting is second to none.  Why must we wait so long for the next season.  WHY?!  *sulks*

Sherlock

Books I have received to review:

He Belongs to Me Believe Girl Missing Prisoner of Night and Fog

 

He Belongs to Me is a courtroom battle over custody of a child.  Which seems a bit at odds with the cover but it sounds messy and dramatic.

Believe is the third book in this great NA series by Erin McCarthy.  SO good!  I heart these characters even the ones I think I’ll hate.

Girl Missing is serial killer thriller.  This will terrify me but I can’t wait to get to it!

Prisoner of Night and Fog is set in 1930’s Munich and even reading the synopsis gives me all the feels.  Adolf Hitler’s niece and a jewish reporter; I’m getting ready for one of the most forbidden love stories ever.  Even the cover makes me want to abandon my current reads and dive in.

Books I have bought:

None!  Jan ban is still in force.

    Go you, with your Jan Ban still going! I would never have lasted so long – banning myself just tempts me more.

    Sherlock was good, wasn’t it? I preferred earlier series, and was a bit worried for this one, but I knew it would all come together in the end. Now it’s just the horrible wait for the next series. Just a year or so to go…

      I’m shocked that I’m keeping to my Jan Ban! I think I bought so many books over Christmas though and ones that I’m really excited about reading that I don’t want to get any more until I put a dent into these.

      Re Sherlock, I just loved that last episode, I wasn’t expecting it, any of it! The second episode with the wedding was so funny, I loved watching Sherlock squirm as he tried to express his feelings.

      Prisoner of Night and Fog is on Edelweiss and it sounds fab. And already I have seen a few trusted friends give it 5 stars so I’m feeling hyped for it.

      He Belongs to Me sounds like it will be an emotional read. It has been a long time since I read something with a courtroom drama so it should be a refreshing change.

      Thanks Laurel, those e-book bargains are normally my downfall! So far so good this month though. I’m determined to catch up a little first before I buy anymore.
      I’ll be along shortly to check your blogiesta progress 🙂

      I never bought or read Sweet but it’s the next book I’m going to buy as soon as I lift my ban! Believe is excellent and I had totally forgotten how much I loved these characters. I didn’t read Sweet as I wasn’t sure I liked Jessica but having seen her and Riley in Believe, I REALLY want to read their story now.

      Each series is so short that it will be good to watch 2 and 3 together. They are tantalisingly short! Hope you have a great week too 🙂

      Thanks Greg, there have been so many Sherlock series and films but this one really stands out for me. Love it!
      Hope you found some interesting links 🙂

      The ban is KILLING me Wendy. One of the only reasons I’m sticking to it is I’ve a new visa that I haven’t linked to my Amazon so I can’t one click! Otherwise I’d never have lasted this long :O
      The new season of Sherlock was my favourite and I loved the others too. Hope you get to see it soon.

    Damn, I still need to watch the 2nd season of Sherlock. I think I’ll do a marathon with all three seasons and binge! And nice haul. Yeah, the cover of He Belongs to Me does seem at odds with the blurb.

      With only 3 episodes per series, it is very easy to catch up. Hope you get a Sherlock Day soon and enjoy 🙂
      I was writing off He Belongs to Me when I got the review request as the cover did nothing for me but then I read the blurb and I was like ohhhh….that sounds good!

    • trish

      I HATE that there is only 3 episodes, it just isn’t enough! Especially as we wait so long between series. And yes Prisoner of Night and Fog looks fab!
