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’m out of town and frantically trying to finish up the current index, so I won’t be around much until midweek. But I hope you are all having a good week. And if you celebrate Hanukkah, I hope your holidays were wonderful!
I’m still about 3 books behind on my Goodreads challenge. We’re now a week into COYER Winter 2018, and I’ve read 4 books (2 of them novellas), written 3 reviews, and posted 2 of them so far; the third and hopefully the fourth will be posted in the next week. As for The Backlist Reader Challenge 2018, I’ve read about 20 backlist titles out of my goal of 30. I just haven’t written reviews for 16 of them yet.
Also, signups for The Backlist Reader Challenge 2019 are open! If you want to tackle those older titles on your TBR pile, this is a great way to do it.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I finished Nice Dragons Finish Last by Rachel Aaron (review) and Hot Winter Nights by Jill Shalvis, plus two winter-themed novellas, Once Upon a Winter’s Eve (Tessa Dare) and Gone Before Christmas (Charles Finch.) I’m currently reading East by Edith Patou (a Backlist Reader Challenge book.) And I’m still rereading The Princess Bride — slowly, so as to savor it better. This week, I didn’t read any Ngaio Marsh mysteries for my ongoing series reread.
Listening to: Christmas music
Watching: How the Grinch Stole Christmas (the original animated version)
New Additions to the Hoard

Purchased for Kindle
The Tessa Dare book was free (and may still be.) I added the Audible versions to A Man of Some Repute and Mary Poppins, since they were also on sale.
