The Sunday Salon

Last Friday, I decided to sleep late so my Friday Finds post lingered. I thought I might post it yesterday but, instead, I stayed in bed and watched a movie before getting my self up and about. Then we thought, “Well, before the rain starts, we should take a walk and get lunch.” So we did. Lunch turned into a stroll about the neighborhood, which became a trip to the new used bookstore and the new coffee shop which just happened to be next door to the new bookshop. My love of sleep and lazy days has now turned my Friday Finds into my Sunday Salon post.

But first, this week’s round up. I read:

The Greatest Knight by Elizabeth Chadwick

The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott by Kelly O’Connor McNees

I’m currently reading Pendragon’s Banner by Helen Hollick and absolutely loving it. Ah, Arthur, how you do fascinate me…

Anyway, Friday Finds. Don’t worry, my ramblings today will eventually lead to something. 🙂

Lately, I’ve been all about the fantasy and oddball stories. I’ve decided that once I finish up a few of the historical fiction novels I have around the house, I plan on indulging that fantasy sweet tooth of mine.

The City & The City by China Mieville. Speculative fiction, with a weirdness factor. A hidden city, within a city, with the two populations trying to pretend the other doesn’t exist. Last week I featured Kraken, also by Mieville, and let me tell you, I can’t wait to read both of these books. They sound absolutely wonderful. I think I have just found my summer reading. 🙂

The Darkly Luminous Fight for Persephone Parker by Leanna Renee Hieber. I believe this is a follow-up to The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker which I have not yet read but it is on my TBR. Honestly, the names of these two books are more than enough for me to want to read them. I have no idea what they are about but I’ve fallen for the titles.

Friday Finds is hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Happy Sunday. The day has dawned gloomy and rainy and I’ve got a book calling my name…

  1. Your post made me smile. 🙂 It sounds like you’ve had a very nice weekend so far.

    My procrastination has been in writing reviews lately. I have eleven reviews that need to be written and all I want to do is read.

  2. Ha! I love that your Friday Finds post just lingered into a Sunday Salon post. Your weekend sounds lovely so far!

    So glad that you are getting to read Chadwick, and I really liked Pendragon’s Banner as well!
