Sunday Post – 3/13/16

March 13, 2016 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

Robin went home yesterday. We had a good but quiet week – she shared the musical Hamilton with us (wow!), we spent an afternoon having tea with family friends, we did a little shopping (not her favorite activity, nor mine, but we found matching Hogwarts shirts!), we played games and watched TV, and she and her dad went for a walk in a local state park. (I stayed home with a cold.)  Next weekend, we’ll all meet up for a long weekend to celebrate my mother’s birthday.

The first rehearsal for my choruses went well and the second rehearsal is this afternoon. I love working with these kids! It will be interesting to lead a rehearsal with no voice, though.  😉

I’ve been in a reviewing slump for weeks — just haven’t been able to think of anything to say! — but I’m trying to climb out of it and get some reviews written for all the books I’ve been reading. I finally got one done this week, which I posted Thursday. Hopefully I can get more written in the coming week, so I can go back to posting at least two reviews per week.

What I’m Reading/Watching

I’ve read three books this week for the Take Control of Your TBR Pile Challenge: Eye of the Beholder (Krentz), Lost and Found (Krentz) and Manners & Mutiny (Gail Carriger), as well as an ARC of Susan Mallery’s  Best of My Love.

Nothing this week!


Purchased for Kindle

Scandal Takes the Stage features a character who really intrigued me in the first book.


Have a wonderful week, and happy reading!

      Thank you, Laura! It’s funny that I’m coming out of a slump at the same time that I’ve been knocked sideways by a cold, but I think it was having Robin around for the week — it cheered me up!

    Glad you had a good week. And good luck with the slump- hope it’s short lived! Sometimes writing reviews just takes a back seat. 🙂

    I like that cover of eye of the Beholder.

      That’s an older one — around 1999 or 2001, I forget which. I’ve been reading a lot of Krentz’s backlist recently.

      I’ve been trying to cut way back on NetGalley books. This was a quiet week for Kindle bargains, too. Some weeks I’m not nearly this good! 😉

      I didn’t have any either, except a couple of unofficial t-shirts from TeeFury. So I was tickled to find a shirt that fit me, with the Hogwarts crest on it. 🙂 And here’s to getting out of slumps!
