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….
Hi everybody. It’s me. 🙂
How are you? Hope you are doing well.
So, I have not blogged since last November. If you are reading this thank you for stopping in. I have missed blog land but took an unexpected break. This past week was my one year anniversary of working from home since quarantine began in 2020. Surreal. It has been a crazy year but I am very grateful and feel blessed. As hard as some of the past year has been it has also been a time to stop and appreciate your blessings and remember what is most important, your family and loved ones and your health.
My reason for being away is #1. Work. I work 50+ hours a week from home, usually 10 hour days and sitting at a computer like that for so long leaves ZERO time or energy for blogging. It has been a year of working this way. So when I’m not working I do not want to be anywhere near the computer. #2. I went into a book slump and had no bookish updates to share. The last book I read was in October 2020. Then I got book mail from a publisher last month and I took that as a sign. I finally read my first book of 2021 last weekend and I read the whole thing in pretty much one sitting. My review is ready to post for April closer to the publication date. The book is called Her Three Lives by Cate Holahan and I am happy to share my thoughts on it next month.
Also, THANK YOU to my blog friends who reached out to me either by commenting here at my blog or through DM’s, Twitter, email. I appreciate your checking on me since I went MIA around here. I’ll be blog hopping today.
More updates below…..
In my mailbox:
My Dear Miss Dupré (American Royalty) by Grace Hitchcock arrived via Bethany House. I ordered a copy of Later by Stephen King. And Her Three Lives by Cate Holahan came via Meryl Moss Media. I read this one already and my review will go live early April.
I’m finally reading Stillhouse Lake by by Rachel Caine and it’s very good so far. I will be sharing my thoughts once I’m finished.
So many things. I recommend Bridgerton, Jodi Arias: An American Murder Mystery and the Night Stalker: The hunt for a serial killer. What have you been watching that you recommend?
I have been crocheting alot. Here are a few of the things I’ve made these past few months, I will share a few more next week:
That covers my updates. Thank you for stopping in. I will start blog hopping this morning to catch up a little. I feel like I’m out of the loop book-wise. I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone is doing/reading and I know I will be adding to my TBR as soon as I start blog hopping. Enjoy your weekend!
