The Sunday Post is hosted by the wonderful Kimba, the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, recap the past week, take a look ahead, and showcase our new treasures — I mean books!
As I mentioned last week, I’ve been pretty sick since Saturday (March 25.) The last few days have been slowly getting better, but I’m still really weak and tired. Needless to say, I’ve barely been able to work and didn’t do any blogging this week (except this post), so I was grateful to have some posts scheduled ahead. (Thanks, Anna, for the Blog Ahead challenge!)
Now that I’m recuperating, I have a lot of indexing to catch up on.
Challenge Update: Take Control of Your TBR ended Friday. I read 6 books out of my goal of 10, though I’ve only reviewed 2 of them on the blog so far. (The others have mini-reviews on Goodreads, and will get full reviews when I have the time and energy.) I’m 16 books ahead on my Goodreads Challenge. You can see my progress on all my challenges here.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: Being sick left me with a lot of time on my hands (when I wasn’t sleeping, which was most of the time.) I read and enjoyed Dangling By a Thread (purchased) and Tightening the Threads (ARC), both by Lea Wait; it’s a very good cozy series, more realistic than most, and not whimsical at all. And I read the 4th book in the Charles Lenox mystery series, A Stranger in Mayfair (Charles Finch; my collection.) Given my fever and low energy levels, though, I wasn’t up to reading many new books. Instead, I wallowed in a few familiar favorites, notably some of Mary Balogh’s Survivors’ Club romances and some of Laurie R. King’s Mary Russell & Sherlock Holmes series.
Listening to: Other than a few of the books I mentioned above, and one podcast on the way home from the doctor, nada. Zip. Zilch.

For Review or Review Consideration
Many thanks to Harlequin, HarperCollins, Del Rey, Avon, and Prime Books!
Purchased for Kindle
The Tad Williams and Tessa Dare books are new to me, as is The Prime Minister’s Secret Agent. I’ve read the two Dick Francis mysteries and Mary Jo Putney’s fantasy romance The Marriage Spell, but wanted them for my Kindle library because I like them enough to reread them. I also picked up the Audible version of last two, since Amazon/Audible was obliging enough to offer them at a significant discount.
From the Library
Have a wonderful week, and happy reading!
