Sunday Post– April 27

April 27, 2014 2014, Sunday Post 13



The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

I like this meme because it gives me an opportunity to take a look back at last week and forward to next week in both my personal life and my blog and book life! I also like to see what other people are doing and what books everyone is reading. This is a great meme to participate in every week and I thank Kimba for hosting it!


Last Week

Around the house

My husband and I went to a Shakespeare play (Henry IV, part 1) Sunday night in Washington, DC with dinner beforehand. We enjoyed the play and will see Henry IV, part 2 in May.

Next Week

Around the house

Our daughter is closing on her first house this next week. I wish I could be there, but she’ll do great on her own and she has a month to move. She found a great house and I look forward to seeing it again once she gets all moved in.

We’re going to a niece’s graduation at the end of the week in Chicago. We’ll see quite a few members of the family and we’re also visiting friends in Ohio (where we used to live) so that will be lots of fun!

      I’m not sure. I’m hoping not! It’s billed as similar to the Elizabeth Peter books which have some romance in them as I recall. (I just realized this is the second book in this series and I haven’t read the first book–I wasn’t paying close enough attention when I bought it!) Also I spelled the name wrong in my post…the author is Anne Cleeland if you’re looking for it. Sorry I can’t help more, Nathan!

        I’ll have to check out the Cleeland books. If they are billed as similar to Peters that’s worth some research on my part. I’m a huge fan of Peters.

        I need to get a copy of Nefertiti’s Heart by A. W. Exley. I’m a huge Egyptian history fan and gravitate towards novels like this.

        Have a great week!

          I read Peters many years ago and loved them. I keep thinking I will read some of them again, but so far I haven’t. So many good books to read!

          Thanks for stopping by, Terri!

      Yes, Shakespeare plays are lots of fun to see. So much easier to understand when performed than read!

      Thanks for the good wishes to my daughter, Laurel-Rain! She should be signing the paperwork right about now 🙂

      I enjoy most of Anne Stuart’s books so I’m looking forward to this.

      My husband and I both enjoy Shakespeare plays. Deadshifted should be good. I’m looking forward to starting it before too long since I’ve really enjoyed the other books in this series.

    How exciting for your daughter.I remember the excitement with our first home. The Shakespeare play and dinner sounds wonderful. I love D.C. and all it offers. Nice book haul this week, Lamb to the Slaughter was quite good. I hope you have a wonderful week Jan.

      Thanks, Kimba. She’s very excited, but also nervous! My husband and I are enjoying the DC area a lot. We are trying to take advantage of as many fun activities as we can.
