Sunday Post – 6/18/2023

June 18, 2023 Sunday Post 5

The Sunday Post is hosted by the wonderful Kimberly, 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!

Last Week

I’m still working hard on an index, but making progress. I’ll be working all day today, so I probably won’t get around to blog visits until later in the week.

The weather has been nice for the most part, and we got a few brief (and badly needed!) rainstorms. One of our nephews and his girlfriend were injured in a serious car accident; they both have fractures or broken bones that will take months to heal, but we are all very thankful it wasn’t worse.

Looking Ahead

What I’ve Been Reading/Watching

Reading: I reread Gentian Hill, by Elizabeth Goudge (1949), a historical novel that has been one of my favorite comfort reads for about 4 decades. I also finished Flowerheart by Catherine Bakewell (an ARC I was behind on reading, though I also bought a copy.) The review should post tomorrow. I started this month’s #ReadChristie2023 book, They Do It With Mirrors—not a favorite, but it’s Miss Marple and I love her, so I’ll reread it anyway. But then I got sidetracked and dove into a reread of a Dick Francis mystery, The Edge.

Listening to: I’m still listening to Tricked by Kevin Hearne, but I’m close to done. I should be able to start on the next book, Trapped, in the coming week. And while I didn’t listen to it this week, I hope to get back to the Writing Excuses podcast next week as well.

Playing (very occasionally): Wordle, the NYT Spelling Bee, and Pokemon Go.

Watching: I re-watched “Death of a Ghost,” a two-part Campion episode.

For Review or Consideration

Many thanks to Crooked Lane for Mistletoe and Murder, and to Harlequin for The Witch is Back!

Purchased or Free (Kindle, print, or audio)

I didn’t buy a single book this week! I can’t remember the last time I went a week without buying any books, but my groaning TBR shelves (both physical and virtual) appreciate the restraint.

Stay safe, stay healthy, stay kind… and may you find books a haven in the coming weeks.

    How scary about your nephew and girlfriend but glad they will be okay after recovery. They Do It With Mirrors is one of my least favorite Marple but I do still enjoy it. Definitely not the best Christie era though. I’m so glad to see the Connie Berry. I had forgotten about it so I just dashed over to NetGalley to request it. Have a wonderful week!
