Road to Recovery? Sunday Post – 4/02/2017

April 2, 2017 Sunday Post 4

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!

My Week

As I mentioned last week, I’ve been pretty sick since Saturday (March 25.) The last few days have been slowly getting better, but I’m still really weak and tired. Needless to say, I’ve barely been able to work and didn’t do any blogging this week (except this post), so I was grateful to have some posts scheduled ahead. (Thanks, Anna, for the Blog Ahead challenge!)

Now that I’m recuperating, I have a lot of indexing to catch up on.

Challenge Update: Take Control of Your TBR ended Friday. I read 6 books out of my goal of 10, though I’ve only reviewed 2 of them on the blog so far. (The others have mini-reviews on Goodreads, and will get full reviews when I have the time and energy.) I’m 16 books ahead on my Goodreads Challenge. You can see my progress on all my challenges here.

What I’m Reading/Watching

Reading: Being sick left me with a lot of time on my hands (when I wasn’t sleeping, which was most of the time.) I read and enjoyed Dangling By a Thread (purchased) and Tightening the Threads (ARC), both by Lea Wait; it’s a very good cozy series, more realistic than most, and not whimsical at all. And I read the 4th book in the Charles Lenox mystery series, A Stranger in Mayfair (Charles Finch; my collection.) Given my fever and low energy levels, though, I wasn’t up to reading many new books. Instead, I wallowed in a few familiar favorites, notably some of Mary Balogh’s Survivors’ Club romances and some of Laurie R. King’s Mary Russell & Sherlock Holmes series.

Listening to: Other than a few of the books I mentioned above, and one podcast on the way home from the doctor, nada. Zip. Zilch.

Watching: Nothing.

For Review or Review Consideration

Many thanks to Harlequin, HarperCollins, Del Rey, Avon, and Prime Books!

Purchased for Kindle

The Tad Williams and Tessa Dare books are new to me, as is The Prime Minister’s Secret Agent. I’ve read the two Dick Francis mysteries and Mary Jo Putney’s fantasy romance The Marriage Spell, but wanted them for my Kindle library because I like them enough to reread them. I also picked up the Audible version of last two, since Amazon/Audible was obliging enough to offer them at a significant discount.

From the Library


Have a wonderful week, and happy reading!

    I hope you start feeling better, Lark! That sounds miserable. *hugs* You managed to still accomplish some tasks, though! I said I was going to do TBR, and then I realized all of my already-planned out books would not work for TBR. I decided to take a short break and read a few that have been sent by the author and then pop back to my NetGalley reads. I think I finished the month with 2 that will count.

      Thank you, Charlie! I’ve been working on recuperating this week. I feel a lot better, but my energy levels are slow to bounce back. I’ve done a lot of sleeping and reading (and not enough working, darn it.)
