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!
Well, winter decided to pay a return visit. It’s been cold here all week, though it warmed up a little on Friday and Saturday. Not that I got outside either of those days; I’ve been working and blogging and hardly come up for air. The forecast for the coming week is crazy: 63° Tuesday, 46° Thursday, 72° Saturday, and snow the following Monday. Even for Virginia, that’s a bit erratic.
A quick challenge update: I managed to get 11 posts, 3 drafts, and 1 review set-up done for for Blog Ahead. Yay! I’ll probably use them up over the next several weeks, given my indexing schedule, but at least they’re there to use! I’m at 12 books read so far for The Backlist Reader Challenge (halfway there!), but I’ve only posted 2 reviews so far. [hangs head] And I’m only at 2 books read for the March Take Control of Your TBR 2017 Challenge. That’s not good, since my goal is 10 and there are only 13 days left. I don’t think I’m going to make that one. [shakes head] Too many ARCs this month.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I finished Jewels of the Sun, Tears of the Moon, and Heart of the Sea (Nora Roberts) all of which count for The Backlist Reader Challenge and Take Control of Your TBR. I also read Single Malt Murder (Melinda Mullet; ARC) and A Perfect Obsession (Heather Graham; ARC.) I reread Irresistible (Mary Balogh; purchased), and started Map of the Heart (Susan Wiggs, ARC.) Ghost Talkers (Mary Robinette Kowal) and The Crooked Sixpence (Jennifer Bell, ARC) are still waiting for me to get back to them. Oh, I’m fickle!
Listening to: I didn’t make much headway with my podcasts, though I’m still trying to get caught up on 99% Invisible, The Allusionist, Writing Excuses, and Imaginary Worlds. But I got through several more chapters of Bill Bryson’s Made in America.
Watching: We’ve been watching the John Adams miniseries from HBO. My parents gave my husband the DVDs for his birthday or Christmas a year or so ago, but we hadn’t gotten to them until now. It’s an excellent series in every respect.
