Monday Morning Update February 18, 2013

Hello everyone. Tis is my backup blog. My Internet has been so unreliable, so I dusted off this blog. I can post to my blog from my iPad so life is good until I get the dsl straightened out.

Ok. Downton Abbey? Seriously what the devil was that? I’m going to be in mourning for a week. I made a peach tart to eat while I watched it. Anyway, on to the memes.

Mailbox Monday

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Overview
Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She’s trying to break out of prison—even though if she succeeds, she’ll be the Commonwealth’s most wanted fugitive.

Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit’s grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn’t know about her grandmother or the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother’s whereabouts, she is loath to trust this stranger, but is inexplicably drawn to him, and he to her. As Scarlet and Wolf unravel one mystery, they encounter another when they meet Cinder. Now, all of them must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen Levana, who will do anything for the handsome Prince Kai to become her husband, her king, her prisoner.

Star Trek TOS Allegiance in Exile by David R. George III

Overview
A beautiful green world, rich in fertile soil and temperate climate . . . a textbook Class-M planet that should be teeming with life. Scans show no life-signs, but there are refined metals, including those associated with a space-faring race . . . and a lone city. But where are all of the inhabitants? Captain James T. Kirk leads a landing party from the U.S.S. Enterprise, hoping to get some answers.

The away team discovers a city in ruins, covered by dust, utterly bereft of life. Tricorder readings indicate that this is no ancient metropolis—it has been deserted only for a year. And just beyond the citadel lies what appears to be an ancient spaceport . . . a graveyard of ships that have clearly been sabotaged.

With these ruins too far from either the Klingon or the Romulan Empires, the Enterprise crew can only wonder: Who could have done this? And could this unnamed threat now pose an imminent danger to the Federation?

Between Heaven and Texas by Marie Bostwick

In this luminous prequel to her beloved Cobbled Court Quilts series, New York Times bestselling author Marie Bostwick takes readers into the heart of a small Texas town and the soul of a woman who discovers her destiny there. . .

Welcome to Too Much–where the women are strong-willed and the men are handsome yet shiftless. Ever since Mary Dell Templeton and her twin sister Lydia Dale were children, their Aunt Velvet has warned them away from local boys. But it’s well known that the females in Mary Dell’s family have two traits in common–superior sewing skills and a fatal weakness for men.

While Lydia Dale grows up petite and pretty, Mary Dell just keeps growing. Tall, smart, and sassy, she is determined to one day turn her love of sewing into a business. Meanwhile, she’ll settle for raising babies with her new husband, Donny. But that dream proves elusive too, until finally, Mary Dell gets the son she always wanted–a child as different as he is wonderful. And as Mary Dell is forced to reconsider what truly matters in her family and her marriage, she begins to piece together a life that, like the colorful quilts she creates, will prove vibrant, rich, and absolutely unforgettable. . .

“Powerful, inspiring, and uplifting!” –Robyn Carr

What are you reading on Mondays?
I read all three books listed in the Mailbox section. I don’t know what I’m going to read next. I am feeling like a re-read. What about you?

  1. Well done on reading three books in a week! And Downton…I don’t know the details of the spoiler (we’re only up to Episode 3 here) but it’s very interesting to see where it will go next…

  2. Sorry to hear that your DSL is out and i hope you get it sorted soon. I am liking the simplicity of this blog though. It actually made me read the book synopsis as there was no cover to judge! I like the sound of Between Heaven. I hope you get everything sorted soon and enjoy your Peach Tart! 😀
