Attack of the Two Star Stories (Sunday Post #13)

Run by The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

It's Sunday 11th November, which means that I'm suffering as I attempt a 10K day. 

(I don't remember you mentioning this before.)

That's because I decided to try it on a whim yesterday.

News from the Reading Front

I found out something VERY exciting yesterday!

Mark your calendars, guys! Runemarks-Loki returns on the 20th of March 2018.

As for books I've read since my last Sunday Post...

The Murders in the Rue Morgue by Edgar Allen Poe - Two Stars

The Mystery of Marie Roget by Edgar Allen Poe - One Star

The Purloined Letter by Edgar Allen Poe - Two Stars

Iphigeneia at Aulis translated by Jane Lumley


Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare


Dracula by Bram Stoker - Review

The Hound of the Baskervilles by Arthur Conan Doyle

May Masque by Rachel Fane

Trent's Last Case by E.C. Bentley - Two Stars

And two comics. 

(As you can see, she's been seriously enjoying her coursebooks.) 

The module is brilliant, but I'm finding some of the novels to be a bit of a slog. 

News from the Writing Front

I have just over 5K. I should be hitting 20K today.

(Hence the highly unrealistic plan to write 10K tomorrow.) 

I have all day.

(Assuming you get up and focus.)

Which I will. Have a little faith, would you?

(Maybe if you had a better track record.)

How's your week been?
