January 10, 2021 Sunday Post 6

The Sunday Post is hosted by the wonderful Kimberly, 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

You know that ancient curse, “May you live in interesting times”? At this point, I am longing for a few nice, boring years. Like much of the world, I watched in shock, grief, and anger as armed rioters forced their way into the Capitol on Wednesday, their actions seemingly encouraged by the president himself. I’m trying to hold on to hope that our country’s deep divisions can be healed, but Wednesday’s events left me shaken.

  • Resolutions/Hopes for 2021 – tentative
  • All the Colors of Night by Jayne Ann Krentz – review
  • Sunday Post – 1/17/2021 – tentative

What I’m Reading/Watching

Reading: I finished up the last of Jayne Ann Krentz’s Harmony series with Illusion Town, reread All the Colors of Night (ARC) so I can finally write the review, then read An Extravagant Death by Charles Finch (ARC). But much of my reading time was spent reading the news. (Click title for Goodreads page.)

Listening to: I finished up The Windsor Knot, by S. J. Bennett. I’m not sure which book I want to listen to next, so I made do with a couple of podcasts.

Watching: We watched a few more episodes of Discovery, season 3, and several episodes of Aerial America (because watching scenery requires no emotional energy, and I had little to spare.)

Playing: Carcassonne, Merge Magic, and DragonVale. I still play Pokemon Go, as well.

Added to the Hoard


Kindle: An Unconditional Freedom; Wintersong; A Prince on Paper; Mirage; Woodland Folk Tales of Britain and Ireland; Subversive; Little House in the Big Woods; Enter a Murderer; Death in Ecstasy; When in Rome; A Grave Mistake. (Click title for Goodreads page.)

Stay safe, stay healthy, stay kind… and may you find books a haven in the coming weeks.

    Violence is never the answer, and 2021 is sadly a continuation of 2020 in many ways. But I do believe in constant prayer. I hope you get a chance to watch Bridgerton which is a fascinating series on Netflix. I’ve found myself unplugging lately and reading or watching tv a little more. I’ve also found myself watching more and more of the news. Hope to get back to blogging more soon. Perfect message – Stay Safe, Stay Healthy and Stay Kind and we thank you. Hugs, RO
