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!
It was another of those weeks when I spend almost all my time working, and I didn’t get nearly as much reading done. Other than that, my week was uneventful until yesterday, when the flu (or something) hit me like a ton of bricks: fever and chills and body aches. Luckily I had this post almost finished! I probably won’t be online much today. I’ll try to stop by when I’m feeling better.
A quick challenge update: I’m 7 books ahead for the Goodreads Challenge. I’ve read 14 books so far for The Backlist Reader Challenge (halfway there!), and posted the fourth of those reviews this week. But I’ve only read 4 books (out of 10) for the March Take Control of Your TBR 2017 Challenge, which ends March 31. Oops.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I read Protected by Love (Jennifer Ryan; ARC), a prequel novella for her new Montana Heat series, and I finally finished Ghost Talkers (Mary Robinette Kowal), which was excellent. I also reread Dick Francis’s The Edge (my collection), one of my favorites of his mysteries. I’ve started reading Dangling By a Thread (Lea Wait; purchased), and temporarily stopped reading Map of the Heart (Susan Wiggs, ARC) because it doesn’t realease until August, and I have more pressing ARCs to get through… like The Crooked Sixpence (Jennifer Bell, ARC), which is still waiting for me to get back to it.
Listening to: I listened to several more chapters of Bill Bryson’s Made in America; I’m more than 3/4 of the way through. But I didn’t have time to listen any of my podcasts this week (99% Invisible, The Allusionist, Writing Excuses, and Imaginary Worlds are the ones I’m following right now. Oh, and Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me.)
Watching: We finished the John Adams miniseries, which I really enjoyed. I hope to review it soon.

For Review or Review Consideration
Many thanks to Berkley, Mysterious Press (Grove Atlantic), HarperCollins, and Avon!
Purchased for Kindle
Age of Myth looks intriguing. I read I Sing the Body Electric in high school, and bought this purely for the title story, which is my favorite of his works. I’ve been wanting to try the Murder on Location series, and what better way than with the first three books in one volume? And Beach Lane is, I think, the only one of Sherryl Woods’ Chesapeake Shores series I haven’t read.
