The Postman Knock #50

Ola, everyone!
I didn't know if I could make Sunday post this week because our generator died 3 days ago, and we were forced to set the solar power system sooner rather than later. 
And it wasn't working no matter how many times we checked all the manuals.
Thankfully our friends whom I usually meet on Friday at the yoga class agreed to come to our quinta (farm) and have a quick look on Saturday, and lo and behold the glitch was fixed and we are running on solar power right now! :)

It was also a busy reading week for me.

I READ:

All of these were review copies, as I am determined to clear out my review requests so I  can finally start reading my own copies. THE HARVESTING was pretty cool zombie/vampire flick, RORY reminded me of Alice in Wonderland, it was pretty magical. DELIA'S SHADOW was seriously chilling crime fiction. All three - four star reads.
MY LADY QUICKSILVER, THE BURNING SKY and THE SPIRIT KEEPER were all five star reads. Serious awesomeness here, me dears!

FOR REVIEW:

Thank you, Patrice! Really looking forward to this book. So far this is an excellent series.

This is it for me, peeps!
I'm all achy as hell after a day of work, yoga last night and going out. We are veritable social butterflies these days :)
Full moon tonight, and it's so bright outside we don't need torches to walk around the land.
Absolutely gorgeous.
Happy Sunday and hugs,
Tchau!

Hey! Happy to hear you got power over there - and clean power at that - very nice! ;) Looks like you've been busy reading! Looking forward to new reviews then.

Just finished writing My Lady Quicksilver review - I really loved this one! I'm all excited for London Steampunk once again (Lena and Will forgiven and forgotten, lol).

Aurian said...

Yeah for power in your finca! The covers all look great. Have a nice week Kara.

Glad you got the solar going! At least the moon was full so you could have SOME light if it hadn't worked. :) Happy reading!!

Blodeuedd said...

I am glad it all worked out and that you read some awesome books

Melliane said...

I really liked Delia's shadow. Happy reading! Can't wait to see your reviews!

Kat Balcombe said...

Enjoy!

I'd give a limb to live your life right now, K. So quiet, though I imagine, busy as well. But no deadlines, no bosses to answer to. Bliss!

Looking forward to reading your thoughts on the books you've read - especially The Burning Sky. Have a great week, K.

Bea said...

Wow, you did have a busy reading week! Solar power, how cool. I'm glad your friends were able to help you get it fixed.

Thanks for your kind words at my blog earlier. <3

I've been doing better on reading my TBR books lately and I had a big clear out of books I realistically am never going to read. Hard to find the time to get to everything though.

Karen said...

I hope you have plenty of sunshine for your solar power :-)

And look at all those 5 star reads!

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

Ooo, nice collection of books you got through. :) Have a great week.

Hi, Kara!

I've been wanting to read "The Burning Sky" myself! I've GOT to get it! I'm looking forward to "Destiny" as well -- it's featured on my blog's sidebar. The other books are new to me, but I really like the looks of "The Spirit Keeper", "My Lady Quicksilver", and "Rory". And heck, if you're giving them FIVE stars, they must seriously ROCK.

Sorry for the delayed comment.....and thanks so much for your super sweet comment on my "Stacking the Shelves" post last Saturday!! I LOVE that kitten and pumpkin, too! At the end of the month, they'll be coming down.....I'll be replacing them with a Thanksgiving header. And then, for December, with a Christmas header! (I also have one for New Year's Eve, lol.)

Have a GREAT weekend!! : )

Are you in Portugal now? And on a farm? That sounds pretty cool! :)
And both Delia's Shadow and The Spirit Keeper sound great!

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
