Sunday Post: Oct 5

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 take part in every week and I thank Kimba for hosting it!

Last Week

Home & blog

I have a number of books from the library and even read some of them! I’ve been in the mood to read mysteries.I used to read lots of mysteries, but haven’t read many in recent years. Suddenly I’ve decided I want to read more and I started a new series and read and read!

I think Lark @ The Bookwyrm’s Hoard first told me about Deborah Crombie’s mysteries. (BTW, go by and visit her new blog. She has moved to WordPress! Yay!)

I had the first book in the series as an audiobook so I listened to that and I’m hooked! This week I’ve read the first four books in the series and started the fifth! I plan to read more mysteries and certainly more Deborah Crombie, but I also plan to keep reading fantasy and science fiction.

I was so busy reading I didn’t do much on my blog. I forgot to post my review, but I plan to post two reviews next week!

We are taking a quick trip to Maine at the end of the week to visit my husband’s sister and family. It should be a fun trip. I may not get a Sunday Post done right away next Sunday since we are coming home that day.

What books did you collect last week? What are you planning next week?

Author: Jan

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

  1. That’s a lot of books. I’m reading like crazy too. Mostly thrillers and horror for Hallween on my blog. Those Crombie books look amazing.Fall is a good time for cozing up and reading a good mystery. A hot cup of tea and a good book are a must:)

  2. I’m so happy you are enjoying the Deborah Crombie mysteries!!! That’s exactly what I did when i discovered Crombie – I plowed through a bunch of them in one fell swoop. (And thank you so much for the shout-out, by the way!) Then I got sidetracked – well, partially sidetracked and partially I bogged down in one book that was good but contained a personal trigger for me. But I want to get back to them, and figure I should just skip that second half of the book I had trouble with and move on to the next. πŸ™‚

    Enjoy your trip to Maine!

    1. Thanks, Lark! I’m glad to hear you read the books this way, too! I don’t usually read so many books by an author one right after the other. And I understand about bogging down in a book because of a trigger. It’s a good idea to let that book go, I think.

      And Maine…oh, yes!

    1. I do love Maine. We are looking forward to cooler weather, the ocean, some autumn leaves, lobster. I’m not sure we have time for all that!

  3. Wow, that’s some Deborah Crombie binge. But I love it when a series grabs me like that. I’m looking forward to see what you think of Vampires of Manhattan.

    1. I know, Mogsy. I really immersed myself…LOL. I plan to read more, but I’m putting a few books in between first. I plan to read more in the series soon!

  4. I love Deborah Crombie! I’m a couple of books behind but they’re always great reads. The books get a little more emotional later in the series but they’re still great. I’ve been in a mystery reading mood lately as well. Maybe Halloween is seeping into our brains? Enjoy your vacation and have a great week!

    1. Glad to know you’re a Deborah Crombie fan, too, Katherine. Also good to know they continue to be be good. Yeah, I think Halloween must be seeping into my brain!

  5. Wow, you’re a quick reader.

    I’m still making my way through The Scorpio Races. The writing is so good, but it’s the kind of book I want to sit and soak in for a few hours and real life isn’t currently cooperating.

    1. Usually I’m lucky to read two books a week, Melanie! I just found these books and liked them so much I was able to read really fast! I know what you mean, too, about really wanting to have the time to read and enjoy and being frustrated when the time just doesn’t happen.

  6. Wow, five Crombie books in one week? You really are hooked! And as for that Cleo Coyle mystery…I totally admit to the fact that I’ve read the first four books in that series and thought they were really fun. The coffee shop setting is awesome – and the recipes in the back aren’t half bad, either.

    1. I started reading and didn’t stop…ha-ha! I haven’t had too much time to listen to audiobooks, but hope I can this week. I wonder if there will be recipes in an audiobook?!!
