The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @The Caffeinated Book Reviewer It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. Here is what I have been up to this last week.
A couple months ago I read Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie in preparation for the new movie. On Tuesday, the hubby and I went to see the movie at our newly remodeled theater. Our theater added recliner seats. I have to say it was very nice. I thought the movie was really good. In fact, I know it is blasphemous to say, but I think I enjoyed the movie more than the book.
Very enjoyable so far.
Saturday Situation is put on by Pure Imagination. It is were we review our latest reads. Be sure to check out theirs as well.
“Mary Hand, Mary Hand, dead and buried under land… Faster, faster. Don’t let her catch you. She’ll say she wants to be your friend… Do not let her in again!”
This book was creeptastic! I haven’t read a book in a long time that legitimately scared me. Fiona’s sister was found murdered on the grounds of the closed and run down school for girls, Idlewild. Two years later, a mysterious lady has bought the property and plans to restore the school. Construction halts when a body from 60 years ago is found in a well. Fiona, a journalist, finds herself pulled into solving three mysteries: who is the girl in the bottom of the well, how is she connected to Idlewild, and does Idlewild’s ghost, Mary Hand, have anything to do with it? The story goes back and forth between the present and 1950 where we learn about four girls, Cece, Roberta, Sonia, and Katie, who were roommates at Idlewild. Idlewild is a school for troubled girls but the biggest problem they have is staying away from Idlewild’s oldest occupant, Mary, who haunts the grounds and begs to be let in.
I also read this book this week. I needed a National Award Book for my 2017 Reading challenge so I picked this one because it had a dog on the cover and the synopsis sounded interesting. It did NOT mention that there would be an emphasis on dog fighting which I did not enjoy reading. However, it was a well written book and I found the rest of the story engaging. This author just won another National Book Award for her latest book. I might have to read that one too.

My poor foster dog, Trixie, has an ear infection ( I think). She has been scratching relentlessly at her ears and shaking her head. I couldn’t get her into the vet until Monday afternoon. Hopefully, they will be able to give her some antibiotics or something and she will be able to stop scratching.
