The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog…
Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists….
Happy Sunday everyone. The day is already breezing by since we lost the hour to Daylight Savings but that is fine by me since that means Spring is closer. It has still been very cold here, especially in the mornings in the single digits and last week we had a small snow storm, but no snow day.
The cold dreary weather is draining and March is always a long month. I want sunshine and warmth. I know it is coming soon. This weekend the temps went up into the high 40’s so that was better and we are supposed to reach 60 this Friday.
Onto my updates….
I am so slow with my reading this month, I am pretty much in a slump. I am still in the middle of The Darkest Night (Lords of the Underworld #1) and My Lady Captor. Hopefully I will finish at least one of them this week because I have been reading these two books for way too long.
In My Mailbox:
One Little Secret: A Novel came via AmazonVine.
“Everyone has a secret. For some, it’s worth dying to protect. For others, it’s worth killing.
The glass beach house was supposed to be the getaway that Susan needed. Eager to help her transplanted family set down roots in their new town—and desperate for some kid-free conversation—she invites her new neighbors to join in on a week-long sublet with her and her workaholic husband.
Over the course of the first evening, liquor loosens inhibitions and lips. The three couples begin picking up on the others’ marital tensions and work frustrations, as well as revealing their own. But someone says too much. And the next morning one of the women is discovered dead on the private beach.….”
One Summer in Paris also came via AmazonVine.
“To celebrate their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary, Grace has planned the surprise of a lifetime for her husband—a romantic getaway to Paris. But she never expected he’d have a surprise of his own: he wants a divorce. Reeling from the shock but refusing to be broken, a devastated Grace makes the bold decision to go to Paris alone.
Audrey, a young woman from London, has left behind a heartache of her own when she arrives in Paris. A job in a bookshop is her ticket to freedom, but with no money and no knowledge of the French language, suddenly a summer spent wandering the cobbled streets alone seems much more likely…until she meets Grace, and everything changes.…”
Last week I posted a pic of my current crochet project, a sweater for myself. I’ve made more progress and am working on the second arm today actually. I didn’t follow any set pattern, just Pinterest and Instagram for visual inspiration and I jotted down my own instructions as I went along. The color looks more pink in these photos, but the yarn is actually a coral ombre color. I want to finish it soon so I can wear it. I purposely chose the bright yarn for Spring. I will post finished pics when it is complete.
That wraps up my weekly updates. What is going on with you? Reading? Crafting? Watching? Have a nice week!
