Sunday Post – 3/01/2020

March 1, 2020 Sunday Post 6

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

Rehearsals start next Sunday for the spring concert, so I’ve been busy with preparations for that. And I have an indexing project, so there’s plenty to do. In fact, this coming week looks so packed that I may not be able to get any reviews written… but I posted three since last Sunday, which felt good.

I ordered a blending board (for fiber prep) and it arrived on Wednesday. I couldn’t resist playing with it a little bit, and made my first rolags. I’ll show you the results when I spin these up. Neither colorway will make very much yarn; I was working with leftover scraps of fiber, just to learn gain experience. (If you want to see how to use a blending board, here’s a quick YouTube video it’s about 2 minutes long.)

What I’m Reading/Watching

Reading: I read Tucker (ARC). I reread Nora Roberts’s Guardians Trilogy for the 4th time: Stars of Fortune (reviewed in 2017), Bay of Sighs, and Island of Glass. I started both A Murderous Relation (ARC) and To Ride Pegasus (a reread.) And I’m still slowly working my way through Decluttering at the Speed of Life (Dana K. White, not pictured.) (Click titles for Goodreads or my review.)

Listening: I had been listening to Shades of Milk and Honey by Mary Robinette Kowal, but I didn’t listen to it at all this week. Or anything else, for that matter.

Watching: Picard (season 1) and Warehouse 13 (season 3.)

For Review or Review Consideration

Many thanks to William Morrow and Berkley! Click to see on Goodreads: The Summer Deal; Close Up

Purchased (Kindle, print, or audio)

Click to see on Goodreads, or my review:

  • Rise of Magicks used hardcover. I spotted this at the library bookstore, and grabbed it. It’s in pristine condition and looks brand-new, though I’m sure it’s been read once.
  • Angel in a Devil’s Arms Kindle. I’ve really enjoyed this series, so even though I read the ARC (belated review to come), I’m likely to reread it. So when it went on sale, I bought it.
  • Grave Peril (Dresden Files) Kindle

Have a great week!

    Nora Roberts is definitely an author I have reread many times.. (been a while now though).. and you also have Lisa Kleypas and Sabrina Jeffries! Which means I am going to check out the other books you have mentioned as well 🙂

    Looks like some great books coming up! Happy March!

    Ooo, those rolled bits of yarn remind me of worms or caterpillars. Cool. To Ride Pegasus, I haven’t read that in years. My paperback (several decades old) has a very different cover; I almost didn’t recognize yours at first. Close Up looks good, enjoy! Good luck with the concert rehearsal and preparations.
