Sunday Post: Dec 7


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 haven’t felt very well all week. My cold is now down in my chest and I’m coughing a lot. So I haven’t gotten very much done–lots of sleeping instead. I’m hoping next week is better.

My husband did put up Christmas lights and some decorations before he went out-of-town this last week so I’m enjoying looking at those and listening to Christmas Carols. I love this time of year.

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. Hope you feel better soon, there’s a lot of stuff going around here too. What did you think of The Falconer? I had that one on my radar at one point…

    Nice review of Undercity. I’ve seen her books before and have been curious. The thing I like is that it seems to be set in a sprawling space empire and that sounds like a lot of fun. I may have to dig up the older ones and give it a try. A rule Against Murder sounds good too.


    1. Thanks, Greg! I liked The Falconer pretty well. It wasn’t exactly what I was thinking it would be, but I do want to read the next book. The Skolian Empire of the Undercity is a sprawling empire. I hope you’ll like any of the books you read in the series. Hope you have a great week!


  2. Hope you feel better soon! Sleeping sounds like what you need to be doing but it’s definitely no fun. Sounds like you’ve got your Christmas shopping under control. I’m going to envy you a bit for that one! Have a great week!


    1. Thanks, Katherine! I’m working on feeling better. I’m doing most of my shopping on the Internet plus bought some gifts several months ago. I really need to go through my stash and see what I got for people–ha-ha.


    1. No, I haven’t gone to the doctor. I keep thinking I’m getting better and then I start coughing again. I’ll call my doctor this week if I’m not any better. Yes, I do make my own Christmas cards as well as the other cards I send to friends and family through the year. I love making cards. So much creativity!


  3. Here’s to feeling better soon:)
    I’m wanting to read Deborah Crombie’s books. Been checking out some of hers.
    My Christmas decorating is almost done and I love the cozy, warm feeling. Especially at night when the Christmas tree lights reflect on my Terra Cotta tile files. So lovely.
    I didn’t do Christmas cards this year. Just to expensive to buy and post them with current things happening at home. I’ll be calling people and visiting them instead:)


    1. Thanks, Laura! I hope you try Deborah Crombie’s books. I’m loving them.

      Your Christmas decorations sound lovely. I love having decorations around the house. I’m sorry you’re not able to send cards this year, but I’m sure friends and family will all like phone calls and visits. Have a great week!


  4. Boo for being sick! Have you started Shifting Shadows? I loved it. I think my fave is Asil and Kara’s story. I hope you get better soon! Happy reading.


  5. Those dang Audible sales, they get me all the time. I splurged so hard in November, and soon we’ll have the Christmas sale too. Oof.

    I see you picked up Jinn and Juice as well! I’m hoping I’ll get some time to fit that one in.


    1. I agree, Mogsy. But it is great to get some good books to listen to. Yes, I picked up Jinn and Juice after I saw you had gotten it!
