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!
We arrived home in the wee hours of Monday morning. Since then, I’ve been trying to catch up on laundry, unpacking, business odds and ends (got to pay those quarterly estimated taxes when you are self-employed!) and the myriad houskeeping tasks that need doing – as well as working on the blog and reading! I’m sure within a week or two I’ll be in the midst of another index, but for now, I’m enjoying a respite. I hope you’ve all had a good week, too!

Many thanks to Steph at Fangs, Wands & Fairy Dust!
I really enjoyed The Crime at Black Dudley when I read it myself a year or two back. I’ve meant to read more by this author every since but still haven’t. Ugh! I hope that you have a great week filled with good books!

Looks like you commented twice! No worries; I’ve done that, too, when a comment didn’t appear. You should be automatically approved in future. 🙂 Have a great week!
I haven’t yet read anything by Sherryl Woods, but now I’m intrigued.
Enjoy settling in after your vacation, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES
Laurel-Rain Snow recently posted…AUTHOR’S HOME PAGE
If you like contemporary romance, she’s very good. Try her Chesapeake Shores novels, and also the Sweet Magnolias books. Thanks for dropping by!
R_Hunt @ View From My Home
Glad you’re back! I read Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow and enjoyed it. I hope to read a Shannon Hale sometime soon. Looks like some good reading ahead–enjoy!
R_Hunt @ View From My Home recently posted…Cold Cold Heart Review
I enjoyed it, too, but I think her Princess series (Princess of the Midnight Ball and its sequels) were even better. I’ve got some catching up to do with Shannon Hale – I’ve actually read Book of a Thousand Days (which was very good) but need to read her Bayern series. But I liked Book of a Thousand Days enough to want to reread it, someday.
Glad you are getting back into the swing of things. Enjoy the downtime while you can. I love Graham and hope you enjoy Phantom Evil.

Thanks, Kimba! You’re the one who convinced me to try her, actually! Your reviews of her were so good, and I seem to remember a conversation in which you suggested I might like her since I’m such a fan of Jayne Ann Krentz. 🙂 (Speaking of which, I enjoyed some downtime today and yesterday, and plowed through a few Jayne Castle “Harmony” titles – rereads, of course, since I’ve read them all before.)
Bea @Bea's Book Nook
Looking forward to your reviews of Dogwood Hill and Death and the Redheaded Woman. As nice as traveling is, there’s always so much to do when you get home. Welcome home!

Thanks, Bea! I’ve got Dogwood Hill written and scheduled already, but I need to finish writing the other review – it’s sketched out but not yet complete. I meant to do it today, but Mr. Bookwyrm was working on my computer, fixing some issues I was having with it. (I love having my own IT guy in the house!)
Leeanna @ Leeanna.me
Stolen Songbird is fantastic! Push that one to the top of the list when you’re in the mood for fantasy 🙂 Good haul!
Leeanna @ Leeanna.me recently posted…The Reading Machine  – January 18, 2015
Oh, good to know! I have some other fantasy books that need to come first, both ARCs and books I promised myself I’d read this year (like The Ocean at the End of the Lane and The Slow Regard of Silent Things), but I’ll definitely keep your recommendation in mind. Thanks for stopping by!
Katherine @ I Wish I Lived in a Library
Not surprisingly I’ve got Dogwood Hill and Death and the Redheaded Woman coming up on my reading list. Both look great so I look forward to seeing what you think of them. Seriously what happens to laundry when you travel. I think it multiplies in suitcases. Have a great week!
Katherine @ I Wish I Lived in a Library recently posted…This Week in Reading – January 18
I agree – I came home with lots of laundry despite doing endless loads while we were away! As for those two books, I enjoyed both, so I hope you do, too!
