Sunday Post: Nov 9


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

Another busy week…it will be till at least the end of the year. The trees at the edge of our yard are showing more color and losing their leaves. Our lawn is still very green though and our roses are still blooming.

I finished reading a few books this week…some that I started a week or more ago. It’s great to finish books and most of them are ones I really enjoyed.

I’m making progress on my Blog Ahead Challenge and feel good about that. I’m also participating in the Ho-Ho-Ho Read-a-Thon and have finished one book and posted that review plus posted the review of another Christmas book I read earlier in the week.

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. I love a long weekend at home! Hope you get a lot accomplished! Your roses are beautiful. I’m hoping to be able to devote some time to roses in a few years. They’re so beautiful! Enjoy your new books – I’m especially interested in A Killer’s Christmas in Wales. Have a great week!


    1. Yes, a long weekend when you’re not rushing around traveling or following some other schedule is great. I do love roses. I’ve planted roses at a number of houses we’ve lived in. It’s always hard to leave them behind.

      We are getting a lot accomplished. I filled up bags with trash, old bills to shred, clothes to donate and books to giveaway. So great to free ourselves of some of our clutter!

      The Wales book is going to be good, I think.


  2. Oh, the cover for Dreamer’s Pool is lovely!

    You’re doing well with your challenges, go you!

    I hope you and your husband enjoy the four day weekend and get everything accomplished that you’re hoping for.


    1. Thanks, Bea! And yes, Dreamer’s Pool has a nice cover and I’ve heard great things about the book so am looking forward to reading it! We’ve been doing quite well with our organizing!


  3. I cannot wait to read Burn For Me as well! I’ve seen so many positive reviews for it that I won’t be waiting much longer. It looks like you have lots of good books to look forward to. Enjoy!


    1. Burn for Me is very good. Really enjoyed it. And yes, I have so many books I want to read right now…which is nice, but it’s hard to wait for some of these books!
