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!
This week was less exciting than last week (thank goodness!) but very busy. I’m packing for a trip to see my dad and stepmother (and hopefully some of my dad’s family), plus trying to get an index done. I leave Tuesday and the index is due Monday, so it’s a bit frantic here this weekend! Hopefully I can catch up on some blogging while I’m away, and build my cushion of posts up a bit more. But time with family and Christmas shopping come first!

What I’m Reading/Watching
I finished reading A Desperate Fortune (Susanna Kearsley), which I really liked. And I finally finished listening to The Night Circus, which is a beautiful book; I loved it. I also re-read Harm’s Way (Catherine Aird) and Rosamunde Pilcher’s lovely Winter Solstice, one of my favorite books for this time of year.

Since Black Friday, a lot of Catherine Aird’s and Dorothy Sayers’ mysteries and a few of Ellis Peters’ Cadfael mysteries have gone on sale, and I’ve one-clicked most of them – far too many to show you here, and they’re all re-reads for me anyway. Besides all those, I got these (below). The Tamora Pierce titles are also books I’ve read before, as is Princess of Glass, but Robin and I are both really fond of them. The other two I have not yet read.
