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 spent pretty much the entire week working 12-hour days, except yesterday when I sang solo for a funeral (my first solo work in several years, which was a bit nervewracking but went reasonably well) and then went with my husband to a retirement party for one of his coworkers. That meant I’ve had no time to blog; I managed to pull together a News & Notes post on Friday night, but didn’t even have time to write this Sunday Post until after church today. Fortunately, I think things will slow down a little in August. I hope that will give me a chance to catch up and maybe even get ahead on the blog!

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: As often happens when I’m feeling stressed or under pressure, I haven’t been sleeping well, so I got a lot of reading done. I finished Aunt Dimity and the Widow’s Curse (Nancy Atherton; library) and The Duchess Deal (Tessa Dare; ARC.) I also finished rereading The Game, Locked Rooms, The Language of Bees, and God of the Hive, continuing my a reread of Laurie R. King’s Mary Russell & Sherlock Holmes series which began when I was sick in March. Currently I’m reading The Day of the Duchess (Sarah MacLean; ARC) and rereading Straight (Dick Francis; own.)
Listening to: Not much. I listened to a few podcasts but haven’t started another audiobook yet.
Watching: We watched a few more Father Brown mysteries, but mostly, I didn’t have time to watch TV.

For Review or Review Consideration
Purchased for Kindle
There was a big sale on fantasy books early in the week. Some the titles here are still on sale. I used a Christmas gift card for the two Laurie R.King books, which were not on sale. I wanted reading copies so I wouldn’t mess up my treasured signed copies.
