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!
I’ve spent pretty much the entire week working, or at least trying to… including all day and evening yesterday. Today will be the same. Hopefully, I’ll have this index turned in by midweek.
Google Analytics tells me that smartphone/mobile visitors to my blog are getting a lot of 404 errors, mostly in the last week. I tracked down one broken link, but I didn’t have time to look for any others. Once I get my schedule back on track, I’ll install a broken link plugin and start fixing the rest. But I’m not sure what’s up with the mobile side of things. I’ll try to figure it out!

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I reread The Adept, a 1990s-era urban fantasy by Katherine Kurtz and Deborah Turner Harris, and started the sequel. (The Kindle versions are probably self-published after the paperbacks went out of print, and the covers aren’t great, but the books are fun.) I read The Designs of Lord Randolph Cavanaugh, mostly out of nostalgia because I used to love Stephanie Laurens’ books, but they don’t have the same spark anymore. And I’m reading A Curse So Dark and Lonely (Brigid Kemmerer; ARC), a portal-fantasy Beauty and the Beast retelling.
Listening to: Founding Mothers: The Women Who Raised Our Nation by Cokie Roberts. I think I only listened for about 45 minutes this week.
Watching: We started watching Eureka, but because I’ve been working, we’ve only seen the pilot episode so far. It’s a lot of fun; I’m looking forward to continuing the series.

For Review or Review Consideration
The story of Spin the Dawn sounds amazing (“Project Runway meets Mulan.”) One of my favorite authors, Tamora Pierce, gave it high praise. And just look at that gorgeous cover! I am over the moon to have received a review copy. Thank you, Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers!
I’m looking forward to reading I’d Rather Be Reading—because, yes, I would!
