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….
Good morning and happy Sunday. January came around so quickly. We had a quiet New Years here, we ordered Chinese food for dinner on NYE and watched the ball drop on tv. I took the Christmas tree down on New Years Day since I was home. I feel that January through the end of March are the longest three months of the year. These are cold and dark winter days but at least they make for good reading and tv binge watching time.
onto my bookish updates….
recently on the blog:
I shared my First Lines of 2019 which I like to do each New Years Day here on my blog.
I posted my thoughts on A Crafter Quilts a Crime by Holly Quinn which was my last read of 2019.
I finished reading my first book of 2020, Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell. I’m still thinking about it and my review will be up this week.
in my mailbox:
I grabbed a copy of Daughters of the Lake by Wendy Webb through Amazon Prime.
The ghosts of the past come calling in a spellbinding heart-stopper from the “Queen of the Northern Gothic.”
also of note:
I signed up for Serena’s Poetry Reading Challenge. I love this idea for a challenge and I enjoy reading poetry. There are a few options but I chose this one:
One of the easiest, and possibly most difficult, will be getting people to sign up to read a poem-a-day through the Academy of American Poets Poem-a-Day service. The challenge is to read a poem-a-day for a week once per month and write about which poems were your favorite and why. You can write up a short blurb on your Facebook page, Twitter, Instagram, or your blog. I’d love for you to share your experience in the comments each month.
Watching: (lots of goodies)
I binged season 2 of YOU on Netflix with my daughter. So good. And hubby and I finished up season one of The Righteous Gemstones on HBO which was laugh out loud funny. And I’ve been watching The Food that Built America on the History Channel which has been just as great as The Men Who Built America . Thank you History Channel, now I know how Hershey’s chocolate and the Milky Way chocolate bar came to be. Have you seen any of these? What are you watching lately?
That wraps up my updates for the week. Happy reading 🙂
