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 made a New Year’s resolution to eat more healthfully and exercise more, in hopes of improving my overall health and energy and losing some of the weight I’ve gained in the last several years. I didn’t get off to a great start, but this week I’ve finally started making some progress on both fronts. I got out for a brisk walk twice, and started making better choices about what I eat. I hope I can stick to it; my track record isn’t great, to be honest.
Indexing… goes along; I’ll be working over the weekend. My current knitting project, a cap-sleeve sweater for a friend who is expecting a baby, is about 75% done. And I finally managed to get a review written and posted this week, so yay me!

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I haven’t been reading as much as I’d like this month, and I’m already behind on my Goodreads challenge and my Backlist Reader goals, but I did better this week. I finished A Treacherous Curse (Deanna Raybourn, ARC), which was just as good as I’d hoped. I was approved for Robyn Carr’s The Family Gathering this week, and I, um… well, I may have broken my reading schedule (such as it is) to plunge right into it. I finished it up in a single day. I reread Death and the Gravedigger’s Angel, which I neglected to review last year, so I can finally review it and because I’ve got the new one coming up. Now I’m reading The Problim Children (Natalie Lloyd; ARC) and A Scandal in Battersea (Mercedes Lackey; library.)
Listening to: Still listening to Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix; I’m nearly half-way done.
Watching: Father Brown (season 5) and a few episodes of The Agatha Christie Hour, specifically “The Girl in the Train” and “The Case of the Discontented Soldier.”
