Sunday Post – 2/22/15

February 22, 2015 Sunday Post 20

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 got a new indexing job this week, and we’re heading towards concert season, so I’m going to be a very busy bee for the next few weeks. I’m still trying to get ahead on the blog, too, without much success. Weatherwise, we finally got some snow – 8 inches or so on Monday night! Mr. Bookwyrm’s place of work closed, so we just hunkered down for a nice quiet snow day. Well, except for the almost 2 hours it took him to dig out half the driveway.

We’ve started watching Agent Carter! Unfortunately, the first episode was gone from Hulu by the time we started, but we’re nearly caught up now except for the most recent episode. I really hope ABC doesn’t cancel the show; it’s good, and I love that they were able to get some of the same actors from Captain America to reprise their roles (Peggy Carter, Stark, even some of the Howling Commandos.)

This weekend I seem to have come down with a bug. Nothing serious, but a really persistent headache along with body aches and watery, itchy eyes. So please forgive me if it takes a while to get to your comments and your Sunday Posts!

      I’ve liked some of Carr’s standalones but not gotten into others, but I peeked into this one and think I will enjoy it. Agent Carter is in the Marvel Avenger’s universe – it’s what Peggy Carter (from Captain America) does after Steve’s “death”, so it’s set in the 1940s. And she is kick-a**! It’s well-written and a lot of fun.

      I need to read the first two Connie Archer books. I read A Roux of Revenge and really liked it. So far Ladle to the Grave is good, too.

    Oh, I hope you feel better! And your poor husband, two hours to do half the driveway. Yikes. 🙁

    Ladle to the Grave has such a pretty cover! And several people got Book Scavenger. I’m curious to see what people think of it.

    Have a great week!

      It’s a longish driveway, and there was a fair bit of snow! I’m reading Ladle to the Grave now, and peeked into Book Scavenger – it looks fun.

    We got snow last week, too. Not quite as much as you did, but still beautiful. We enjoyed watching the snow and the birds from inside as did our cats! I hope you feel better soon. No fun when you’re not feeling 100%.

    Good luck with your time since it sounds kind of crunched right now. I watched the first week of Agent Carter and liked it a lot, but somehow it fell through the cracks. We didn’t record it. Maybe we’ll be able to watch it later.

    I hope you’re able to get some fun reading done this week.

      I’m doing a lot better today, thank you! If you check Hulu, you should be able to catch some of the Agent Carter episodes there. Or you can always wait until it comes out on DVD (and maybe streaming via Netflix or Amazon Prime.)
