Throughout the season, the sisters individually delve into their past to confront personal struggles and emerge stronger through these self-explorations. Despite the great risk to attain freedom for themselves, their families, and the host of clone sisters they’ve yet to meet, clone club uncovers the missing pieces of the insidious conspiracy to finally learn the story behind their origin.

Edited April 29, 2016, to add:

And now we know. The scene pictured above in the first photo aired last night in the third episode, The Stigmata of Progress. It is Helena with Donnie!

With the discovery of the maggot bots and the fact that one was implanted in Sarah, Alison and Donnie decide to dig up the body of Aldous Leekie to try and obtain a specimen for Cosima to study. Helena is busy in the kitchen eating for three when two detectives arrive to speak with Alison about a murder. When Donnie pops into the house for water, he notices what was going on and joins Helena and the two detectives for a hilarious, yet suspenseful scene. The photo shows Donnie and Helena at the door after the detectives leave.

Orphan Black – Season Three DVDs are out!

OBSeason3

Hooray! I am now at home after running errands and picking up the Season Three DVD set for Orphan Black which was just released. See you in a couple of days.

Only fooling. I was at a local Wal-Mart bright and early trying to beat the heat. Not on the shelf! Just then a clerk happened to walk by so I asked about the new Orphan Black just out today. She led me over to boxed DVDs on a cart and said that the third shift hadn’t unpacked them for whatever reason. Then the wonderful clerk, rummaged through the boxes until she found it for me. Kudos to her.

I’ve known about and considered reading the Alexandra Quartet for a number of years. When I saw it on Fred’s Desert Island list earlier this month, I knew the time had come. Thanks, Fred!

ThaaoPlaces

Having enjoyed watching Thaao Penghlis on General Hospital and Days of Our Lives, I’ve been looking forward to the paperback publication of Places. Thaao Penghlis has also been in a number of movies, including portraying a fascinating character in one of my favorite movies, Altered States.

Now for the series mysteries:

FourMysterySeries

The Blood of an Englishman (Agatha Raisin #25) by M C Beaton – a tried and true series for me which I have been following for years.

The Twelve Clues of Christmas (Royal Spyness #6) and Heirs and Graces (Royal Spyness #7) by Rhys Bowen – a new series I put off reading, finally tried thanks to Selah at A Bibliophile’s Style and now love.

Dead Water (Benjamin January #8) by Barbara Hambly – I first heard of Barbara Hambly through her Star Trek novels and am now hooked on her historical mystery series set in New Orleans.

Share your Finds with us! We’d love to know if you found anything exciting this week.

Orphan Black – Impersonation mixed with drama

Community of Dreadful Fear and Hate

Introduction

My jaw literally dropped during this scene! What a zinger, I couldn’t believe my ears.

Tonight’s episode, the seventh of Season Three, is my favorite so far this season. It was great to see the humor as Cosima impersonated Alison. My favorite episodes are usually ones with some light-hearted scenes as a bit of relief from the breathlessness of the drama.

And there was plenty of drama too:

Teaser Tuesdays – April 21, 2015

PalmTreesTT

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm.

Anyone can participate.

If you’re new to Teaser Tuesdays, the details are at MizB’s A Daily Rhythm or on my Teaser Tuesdays Page.

I haven’t liked some of the books in this series, but this one is turning out great. Fans of the television show Alien Nation should love it. It will also be of interest to others as it’s not just science fiction. It’s about prejudice and labels of all kinds. Homage is paid to John Howard Griffin and his experience in the 1950s which are recounted Black Like Me.

Slag Like Me
(Alien Nation #5)
by Barry B. Longyear

SlagLikeMe

“All kinds of irrelevant detail,” said Fell, looking up at Matt. “What I do know about Mick was that he swung his honesty like a war club, and that his mortal enemies were stupidity, injustice, and cruelty.”

Publisher’s blurb:

Detective Matthew Sikes and his Newcomer partner George Francisco must track down a missing human journalist, named Micky Cass, who has gone undercover as a Newcomer to expose racism and discrimination against the Tenctonese. From the beginning, the journalist’s articles about his experiences ignited fierce controversy. When Micky Cass disappears, the controversy explodes and violence wracks the city. It is now up to Sikes and Francisco to solve a case that has the entire city caught in a grip of hate. Finally, as the city burns, Matt Sikes must go undercover as a Newcomer and place himself at the center of the worst violence Los Angeles has ever known.

What are you reading now? Do you have a TT to share with us?

#ReadingMyLibrary Challenge Weekly Update – April 18

ReadingMyLibrary

This week I finished Dead in the Family (Sookie Stackhouse #10) by Charlaine Harris, my second library book for April.

Earlier today it was a joy to participate in the #ReadingMyLibrary chat on Twitter. It was hosted by Stefani in conjunction with this Challenge. Samantha, Eden and Leah were the other major attendees.

This week’s topic:

Why you love libraries or why you love being a librarian.

One thing I took away from the #ReadingMyLibrary chat was about audio books. I forget about them and, in fact, don’t even know where they’re located in my local library. It’s great that the catalog is online and so easy to search. I found two audio books of interest to me:

LookingForAudio

Looking for Peyton Place by Barbara Delinsky

I watched that old television series from the sixties. It was possibly the first nighttime soap in the US and I was riveted. I must see what this book is about!

WaterAudio

Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen is the other audio book which caught my eye, possibly because of the movie which I’ve heard of but not seen.

I love librarians because they are so anxious to assist. They’ll show me where to find the audio books in a flash!

 I love libraries. It is always fun to browse when I have the time. Books, books and more books. What’s not to love?
