The Sunday Post #89

Greetings you guys! Gosh I miss you! It’s late on a Sunday afternoon of a very busy weekend, following a hectic week. How are you guys all doing? We are well! Mommy is back at school. Sort of. This year brings along a few changes for my Mommy. She is not going to be at school fulltime this year, but only twice weekly. Yes, her timetable is totally crazy with hardly a bathroom break. She will only be doing the library and not the special needs classes anymore. Lots of new things happening in the library for 2023. The biggest of all is the new reading challenge that we got from Debbie @ Readerbuzz. In a perfect world, Mommy and Debbie should have worked together. The kids are ever so excited and we hope to kick off with this tomorrow! My Mommy spend days trying to have the shelves sorted, but she’s still not done. I guess this will have to be a work in progress for the unforeseeable future. Of course we are also going to be taking part in this challenge! The big question now of course is – what will she be doing with the rest of […]

Percy Hare and the Girl in the Game by Craig Martin

Percy Hare and the Girl in the Game by Craig Martin

Percy Hare and the Girl in the Game by Craig Martin on October 27th, 2022 Genres: Historical Fiction Pages: 308 Format: ARC Source: Reedsy Discovery Buy on Amazon Goodreads Percy the Hare lives just beyond the notice of most decent folk in 1880’s Lafayette, Indiana, a town on the Wabash River and the Wabash & Erie Canal. But the aging hare plays a vital role in the city’s illicit activities and has a colorful mix of friends and acquaintances. When his longtime companion and madam Evaline Wells needs an escort for her adopted daughter’s excursions into the late-night euchre circuit, who better than the ornery hare to see her through its challenges. Through their clever friendship, Percy and young Esther Wells bring to life the gas-lit world of early Lafayette town, in all its color, pageantry, grit, folklore, and mystery. Percy Hare and the Girl in the Game is one of those rare books you simply don’t know where to slot in. Part Historical Fiction, part Folklore, part Animal Fantasy and a huge part Tall Tale as fluffy as a bunny’s tail. Or in this case – a hare. When I saw the synopsis for this book, it immediately drew […]

Six Degrees of Separation – Island Read

Six Degrees of Separation – Island Read

Greetings you guys! It’s 2023 and this year we are going to try our best not to miss a single Six Degrees of Separation post. It really can’t be that difficult. Only 12 to do. For those of you who don’t know this fun monthly meme, it’s hosted by Books are my favorite and Best and here’s a few tips and ideas: Books can be linked in obvious ways – for example, books by the same authors, from the same era or genre, or books with similar themes or settings. Or, you may choose to link them in more personal ways: books you read on the same holiday, books given to you by a particular friend, books that remind you of a particular time in your life, or books you read for an online challenge. A book doesn’t need to be connected to all the other books on the list, only to the ones next to them in the chain. The fun thing about this meme, is that no two chains are ever the same and the directions the links can go to, are endless. The first startup book for 2023 is a book we have actually read! Whoo hoo! Finally. […]
