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 am scarily behind in my work due to circumstances beyond my control (well, mostly.) I will be working around the clock today (except when I’m rehearsing) and all this coming week. I’ll barely have time to sleep, let alone get any posts done in the coming week, so I’m officially taking a week off from the blog. If I can, I’ll be back next Sunday; if not, expect to see me sometime after Oct. 17.

Upcoming on the Blog
The Blog Ahead Challenge runs through the end of October. My goal is to get 15 posts “ahead” by then. So far, I’ve done 2 posts. Not bad, considering how busy I’ve been, but I won’t get any more done until later in the month.
What I’m Reading/Watching
I haven’t had a lot of time for reading this week. I did read A Kiss in the Snow, a Fool’s Gold novella by Susan Mallery (purchased); it’s really more of a long short story, so it didn’t take very long. I’m still reading A Terrible Beauty by Tasha Alexander (ARC), and I started The Hammer of Thor (Rick Riordan; purchased.) I’ve been rereading A Discovery of Witches for the Real-Time Read-Along. And I still need to get back to Shades of Milk and Honey, the first in the Glamourist Histories by Mary Robinette Kowal (purchased.)
I’m still listening to Made in America by Bill Bryson. Or rather, I’m not, since I haven’t had time to. We did watch The Clocks, Elephants Can Remember, and The Big Four (the Poirot mysteries starring David Suchet) before the work crashed down upon my head. We haven’t returned to The Shannara Chronicles yet, but maybe after I get through all this work! Avatar: The Last Airbender is currently on hold, too.

For Review or Review Consideration
Many thanks to Roc.
Purchased for Kindle
The Riordan and March books were pre-ordered. Aunt Dimity’s Death is one of my comfort books, and it finally went on sale for Kindle. And how could I resist a book of tea and cookie recipes? Finally, these Kurtz books went on sale, so I was able to complete both these trilogies (The Legends of Camber of Culdi, and The Heirs of St. Camber.)
