Sunday Post – 12/13/15

December 13, 2015 Sunday Post 16

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 been with my dad and stepmother in Utah since Tuesday, having a low-key but enjoyable visit (other than a cold that crept up on me Thursday night; I haven’t shaken it yet.) Tomorrow I leave for New Mexico, where I’ll meet up with Robin at my mom and stepdad’s. Mr. Bookwyrm will join us there next weekend for a family Christmas – my sister and her family live in the same town. It’s going to be lovely!

What I’m Reading/Watching

I’ve read a fair bit this week — travel, vacation, and a cold will do that to you! My favorite new-to-me book for the week is Sarah Maclean’s The Rogue Not Taken, but I also enjoyed Tessa Dare’s short novella, Lord Dashwood Missed Out. Both writers share a talent for blending humor and emotion. Much as I love Mary Balogh, I was a bit uncomfortable with parts of the first book in A Christmas Bride/Christmas Beaubut the second made up for it a bit. And I reread two Catherine Aird mysteries, Passing Strange and A Late Phoenix.  All the reading put me over the top in my Goodreads Reading Challenge – 182 books, 2 more than I planned to read, and I’ve still got 18 days to go.

    I’m sorry to hear you’ve been sick. 🙁 I do hope you are feeling better soon. I hope you have a wonderful holiday with your family as well. I can’t believe Christmas is just two weeks away!

    I look forward to reading your list of your top ten books. I haven’t even thought about that yet.

    Enjoy your week!

      Thank you for the good wishes! I’m doing better and enjoying being with family. I hope you’re enjoying the holiday season, too!

    Hope you are able to have a great visit with family even though you aren’t feeling well. I just finished my first Tessa Dare book and it won’t be my last.

      Thank you, Nise! I’m feeling better, except for a persistent sniffle, and it’s good to be with my family. But I can’t wait for Mr. Bookwyrm to get here! (He’s still at home, working. I miss him.)

    Hope you are feeling better. I loved MacLean’s newest book and hope you did as well. Enjoy your new lovelies. Cannot wait to see your top ten. I do a top ten for new adult, adult, romance, young adult and audios…since I read and listen to so many genres. Have a wonderful week and rest!!

      I thought about doing top ten lists by genre, but in the end I stuck with just new releases. Maybe next year I’ll do multiple top ten lists, because I do love the idea!

      Thank you, Tiffany! I’m starting to feel better, though I’m still really tired out. But it’s great to be spending time with Robin and my parents.
