Sunday Post – 1/20/2019

January 20, 2019 Sunday Post 11

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

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 MothersThe 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.


New Additions to the Hoard

Cover links take you to Goodreads.

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!

Library Books

I’m looking forward to reading I’d Rather Be Reading—because, yes, I would!

Purchased for Kindle


Have a good week, and happy reading!

    My reading slump is making things difficult for me but I’m slowly working my way through a Curse So Dark and Lonely and enjoying it. 🙂

    I haven’t experienced any broken links but I hope you work it out!

    I love the look of Spin the Dawn, Lark. I can’t comment about your error message, because I don’t do blogging on my phone. Hope you manage to fix the problem. Have a great week.

    Oh no, I hope you’ll figure that out! I should get one as well, but I’m still reformatting and it’s not worth it if I’m going to have a bunch of the same popups that I already know will happen, haha. I’m not sure about the 404 errors though… that seems a little odd.

    I got Spin the Dawn as well and I’m as over the moon as you are! I’m super excited as Mulan is one of my favorite stories and I want to see how Elizabeth Lim will take this one after reading her take on Mulan in Reflection.
