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’ve been doing the COYER Photo Challenge over on Instagram, and reblogging my photos on Tumblr. I don’t know if I’ll be able to keep it up through the whole month of August, though, because I’m headed out to New Mexico in a few weeks to visit Robin for her birthday and see my mom and stepdad and my and sister and her family, then up to Utah to see my dad, stepmom, and some of my cousins.
Mr. Bookwyrm and I went to the movies twice this week, once to see Wonder Woman—I loved it!—and once to see a screening of the Broadway stage musical Newsies, which was also excellent. Two dates in one weekend!

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I’m still reading The Day of the Duchess (Sarah MacLean; ARC.) I finished rereading Straight (Dick Francis; own); my review will post Monday. I also reread Copper Beach (my review) and Dream Eyes (my review) by Jayne Ann Krentz. I liked Copper Beach better this time around, and bumped my rating from 2 stars to 3 stars. And I began rereading Dennis L. McKiernan’s Once Upon a Winter’s Night.
Listening to: I listened to a few Imaginary Worlds podcasts but haven’t started another audiobook yet. I also tried the Fiction Food podcast, but gave up after trying two different episodes; the hosts spend too much time talking about random stuff, and they’re sort of scattered in their presentation. I’ll stick to the website instead.
Watching: We watched the movie Sully, which my husband got for his birthday, about the airline captain who safely landed a plane on the Hudson. And we watched the first two Harry Potter movies in honor of Harry’s birthday. Oh, and one more of the Father Brown mysteries. And we saw Wonder Woman and Newsies in movie theaters—not the movie Newsies, but the Broadway musical, filmed live and rebroadcast.

Fewer books this week, which is good for my budget at least! Most were on sale.
