Sunday Post – 2/17/2019

February 17, 2019 Sunday Post 8

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 hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day, or Galentines Day, or just a great week!  Between both our jobs, we didn’t go out for Valentine’s Day, but exchanged heartfelt cards and had a long and lovely call from Robin. Last night we went out to dinner with some friends from the church we’ve been going to, plus the priest and a visiting priest. It was a good evening.

I’ll be working most of today, but hope to pop around to visit you all later in the week.

What I’m Reading/Watching

I know what you’re thinking: this is a lot of books! On the one hand, it feels good to be reading again (or at least rereading), after January’s major slump. On the other hand, insomnia also has its price…

I finished rereading Jayne Castle’s Ghost Hunters/Harmony series and started on the Arcane Society (same author, but under all three of her names.) I find these are very quick reads, especially on the third or fourth go-round, as it was for some of the titles.

I’m also reading The Victory Garden by Rhys Bowen and A Stash of One’s Own, edited by Clara Parkes. It’s a collection of essays by knitters about their yarn stashes (or lack thereof), and more generally their relationships with yarn. I know that doesn’t sound very interesting, but trust me—to a knitter, it does! And I’m almost finished listening to Founding MothersThe Women Who Raised Our Nation by Cokie Roberts.


New Additions to the Hoard

Cover links take you to Goodreads or my reviews.

Library Books

So technically, these came in last week, but I didn’t post a photo of them because I didn’t think I’d have time or energy to read them… but if I can renew any of them, I may be able to.

Purchased for Kindle

I read and reviewed Masks and Shadows as an ARC in 2016, around when it came out. I loved it, and would happily reread it again, so when it went on sale for Kindle, I was delighted. But I managed to resist purchasing any other Kindle books this week.


Have a great week, and happy reading!

      She’s definitely one of my auto-read authors, too. I read all her new books as they come out, and I’ve read quite a few of her backlist, as well. (Except the early category romances. I tried one, but they are much too dated.) I think you would enjoy the Ghost Hunter/Harmony series.

    Oh I glommed on to the Stash of One’s Own right away as one I want to check out. and wow, hard cover library books. I almost never do that anymore, digital is just too easy since you don’t have to go to the library to get it or take it back. I only go now for Interlibrary loan stuff.

    I just read a review of Masks and Shadows from someone a TBT I think, maybe . Anyway, it sounded excellent and I went out to my library and reserved it.

    You’ve been busy. I hope the reading goes well and you find some fascinating books this week.

      I’m enjoying A Stash of One’s Own. And I went with hardcover on most of these because my library didn’t have them in digital. We do get some books in digital, but as it happened, most of these weren’t on the digital list, or had too many holds in front of me.
