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!
So much for my plans to get caught up on blogging this week. I seem to be having a really hard time getting anything done, on the blog or off it. I’ve been distractedly flitting from thing to thing, and not finishing anything. I hope I can break that cycle in the coming week. I’m really behind on pretty much everything at this point, except work (because I don’t have a project at the moment.)
The Tackle Your TBR Readathon begins tomorrow. I probably should use it to work on the huge virtual “pile” of digital ARCs I seem to have accumulated in the last few months. But I need to discipline myself to write the reviews right away, so I don’t get behind like I have with the ARCs I’ve read in the past few months.
So many natural disasters in the last few weeks…the wildfires in the western US; the hurricanes in Houston, Louisiana, the Caribbean, Florida; the flooding in South Asia; the earthquake in Mexico. There is so little I or any of us can do about any of it, except pray and donate toward relief efforts. If you were or are about to be personally impacted by any of these, I hope and pray you and your loved ones are and will stay safe.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I read a lot this week! I finished Death Distilled by Melissa Mullett (very good) and flew through Draw Your Own Fonts by Tony Seddon (both ARCs.) And although it’s not due out until January, I couldn’t resist reading Jayne Ann Krentz’s Promise Not To Tell (ARC), which I received this week. (It’s linked to last year’s When All the Girls Have Gone, and it’s also very good.) I also read Nora Roberts’ High Noon for the first time (counts toward The Backlist Reader Challenge.) And I reread All Night Long, Light in Shadow, and Truth or Dare by Jayne Ann Krentz. I’m still reading The Waking Land by Callie Bates (ARC), and I’ve put East by Edith Pattou on standby until I finish that one. (Click cover links for Goodreads pages.)
Listening to: Film scores on Pandora, when I’ve listened to anything. Which hasn’t been often.
Watching: We watched a couple of Father Brown episodes. We also started rewatching Sherlock; we never got around to Season 4, and I’ve forgotten too many of the clues, so I wanted to go back to the beginning. Next week I also plan to continue with Avatar: The Last Airbender as well.

For Review or Review Consideration
Purchased for Kindle
At least I kept the purchases under control this week! The Practice Effect, which I own in hardcover, is a humorous SF adventure that plays with entropy and the laws of thermodynamics: what if, instead of staying the same or deteriorating, physical objects improved with practice?
