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!
It’s been an unpacking-and-catching-up sort of week, with lots of big and little tasks that I had put off while I was working so hard before our vacation. I’m trying to balance what I need to get done, like getting a new dehumidifier to replace the one that stopped working, with things I want to do, like blogging and spinning. And reading, of course!
Speaking of things I want to do… we’re going to see The Pirates of Penzance at a regional dinner theater this afternoon. The original Gilbert & Sullivan operetta has been adapted to take place locally and reflect our local history, which should be fun. I’ve performed in three or four productions of Pirates since I was about 13, in roles ranging from chorus to Mabel (the soprano lead.) I love the show, and can’t wait to see what they have made of it.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: My Stephanie Laurens binge-reread continued through the week, albeit slowly, until I finished the fourth book in the Brides Quartet. I think that’s enough for now, and I’m switching over to fantasy for a bit, starting with The Harp of Kings (Juliet Marillier; ARC.) I hadn’t realized when I requested the ARC that two of the main characters are the children of Blackthorn and Grim from the eponymous series, which I started but need to finish. So reading this one may push the Blackthorn & Grim series back toward the top of my TBR pile.
Listening: I’m nearly done with Code Girls. I’m not really sure what I will listen to next. I may try the audiobook of First Rider’s Call so I can finish it while still working on the ARCs on my Kindle. Other titles I’m considering include Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking, A Natural History of Dragons, A Wind in the Door, or 101 Dalmations.
Watching: We started the fourth season of Eureka. They’ve introduced a new twist to mix things up a bit. I’m not yet sure how I feel about the twist, but I still love the show!
New Additions to the Hoard
Cover links take you to Goodreads or my review.
Purchased in Audible
I took advantage of the Kindle Audible Match program and picked up some audiobooks at bargain prices. First Rider’s Call will, I hope, help me finish the book. Thirteen-Gun Salute was a present for Mr. Bookwyrm. And the other two are books I’ve been meaning to read but haven’t gotten around to yet.
Purchased for Kindle
All of these were on sale (or free, in the case of Elusive.)
