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!
Another busy week in which I don’t seem to have accomplished much. I’ll have to do better this coming week. Mr. Bookwyrm was sick this week, but he’s doing better now. Robin and my parents are back in the States today, after three weeks in Britain. I can’t wait to hear about their trip!

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I reread the Petaybee trilogy by Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Scarborough, and read Amanda Quick’s With This Ring, which I picked up on sale for Kindle this week. And I’m continuing with Someone to Care by Mary Balogh (ARC). I still need to get back to The Slow Regard of Silent Things, by Patrick Rothfuss. It’s beautiful, and I’m so reluctant to finish it!
Listening to: I started Wildwood Dancing early in the week, but paused to relisten to Tamora Pierce’s Circle of Magic quartet first. They suited my mood better, especially while spinning… because one of the main characters, Sandry, is a spinner/weaver/fiber mage. I’ve listened to Sandry’s Book, Tris’s Book, and Daja’s Book. Next up is the series conclusion, Briar’s Book.
Watching: We finally saw Victoria and Abdul, and it was wonderful (though it tends to uphold the colonial narrative.) I love Judi Dench as Victoria! We also watched a few episodes of Father Brown season 6, and I went through some spinning tutorials on YouTube.

For Review or Review Consideration
Purchased for Kindle
The first three sci-fi/fantasy books are for my ongoing project of duplicating my favorite books on Kindle. (Someday I should do another post on why I’m doing that.) I like Amanda Quick and hadn’t read With This Ring yet. Adulting 101: Writing Through Life and Other Adventures was an impulse buy (on sale for 99 cents.)
