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!
I worked hard on an index all week—an exceptionally challenging one, very dense and philosophical, with practically every topic interconnected with at least four others. Projects like that take a lot of time and mental energy. I’m still working on it, but the end is in sight. Other than that, it’s been a very uneventful week.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I managed to get through at least a few ARCs this week: Killer Party (Lynn Cahoon; my review) and You Say It First (Susan Mallery.) Currently, I’m reading the newest Aunt Dimity mystery, Aunt Dimity and the Widow’s Curse; my library finally got it in and I made it to the top of the hold list. The Aunt Dimity books always make me smile! I also reread Justice Hall and started The Game, continuing the reread of Laurie R. King’s Mary Russell & Sherlock Holmes series that I started back in March.
Listening to: I finished listening to The Westing Game, which I hadn’t listened to it in years. Such a fun book—like an American Agatha Christie for middle-grade readers.
Watching: We watched a few more Father Brown mysteries, but mostly, I didn’t have time to watch TV.

For Review or Review Consideration
Many thanks to Kensington! This looks lovely, and part of it takes place in America during the War of 1812, which should be interesting.
From the Library
I made it to the top of the hold list. Yay!
Purchased for Kindle
I’ve read the Dick Francis, Deborah Crombie, and Josephine Tey mysteries before, but would read them again. Shadow Duet is a short story and serves as a sequel to last year’s Masks and Shadows, which I loved. The Bear and the Nightingale and Ancillary Justice have both been on my TBR list, and the Ellis Peters is one I haven’t read, but I love her books.
