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!
I’ve been working (a lot), spinning, and doing a little desultory bookshelf purging this week. Other than that, it’s been uneventful, at least for me. The week has been a lot harder on people I care about. Several friends and acquaintances have been going through really tough times recently, involving death or serious illness in their families. My heart goes out to all of them. There is so little I or anyone can do in those situations, but pray and let them know I care. (Though of course I stand ready to help out with meals, transportation, etc. if needed.)

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I finished A Scandal in Battersea (Mercedes Lackey) and read both Tempests and Slaughter (Tamora Pierce) and The Woman in the Water (Charles Finch, reviewed here.) Both the Lackey and Finch books came from the library, but the Tamora Pierce was a Christmas gift (or rather, the preorder was.) I also started The Slow Regard of Silent Things, which I’ve been saving because I didn’t know when we would get another Patrick Rothfuss novel. (I still don’t, but I decided to read it anyway.) All this means that I’m doing rather better on the Take Control of Your TBR Pile challenge; I’ve read six books from my TBR pile, so I’ve essentially met my goal.
Listening to: I finished my Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows relisten (which had me in tears, as usual!), and started the short but charming Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, read by David Tennant (a Christmas gift.) I’m debating what to listen to when I finish it. I’m torn between relistening to Tamora Pierce’s Immortals quartet (since I’ve just read Tempests and Slaughter, which is a prequel of sorts), or trying something new. Among the other contenders are Trever Noah’s Born a Crime, which my husband got for Christmas; The Mitford Murders by Jessica Fellowes; or Wildwood Dancing by Juliet Marillier.
Watching: We finally finished the first season of Star Trek:Discovery, which was excellent. We’re almost done with Father Brown season 5. There is a season 6, but I don’t think it’s on Netflix yet, so we’ll have to wait.
