Sunday Post–Jan 4


 Happy New Year!

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!

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. It sounds like you’ve had a great holiday. I spent mine quietly at home. Most of us were sick so we didn’t get out and about. And didn’t want to give it to anyone else. LOL
    I did do a ton of reading and have been busy writing reviews. I’m curious what you thought of Red Rising.


    1. Oh, I’m sorry so many of you were sick during the holidays, Laura. I hope you all are feeling better. At least you got lots of reading done. I haven’t read much in the last two weeks.


    1. I know what you mean, Steph! I feel the same way many times when my husband is gone.And we just had our 33rd anniversary!


  2. Sounds like you’ve had a lovely holiday though I’m sure it will be good to be home! You got Mr. Churchill’s Secretary! I love the cover on that one and have been wanting to read it. Hope you enjoy it! Have a great week!


    1. Thanks, Katherine! It’s great to be home though I love seeing our kids. I love the cover and Mr. Churchill’s Secretary sounds great.


    1. Thanks, Kimba! It was a tiring day of travel and I’m ready to stay home for awhile!

      I need to read more Sanderson. I have several of his books. So this is the year . . .


  3. Be safe and hope you have a good week. I liked your reviews of the Perilous Sea and you may have yalked me into reading that series. 🙂 I’m curious to see your thoughts on The Falconer as well. Happy new Year!


  4. Sounds like you had a great week, Jan! Resting up after the holidays is a must. Sometimes I feel like I need a vacation after that vacation, you know? I’m curious to hear your thoughts on These Broken Stars – it’s very popular but I wasn’t a big fan, honestly.


    1. Yes, I’m spending some time resting, Danya! I agree that a vacation after the vacation is necessary sometimes! Oh, I’m sorry you didn’t like These Broken Stars…that gives me a bit of pause about reading it very soon. lol


  5. Welcome home! Sounds like you had a wonderful vacation. I’ve been hearing good things about Owl and the Japanese Circus; I want to read it.


    1. Thanks, Bea! It was a great vacation. I finally finished Owl and the Japanese Circus. It took a long time–didn’t have a lot of time to read. I’ll have my review up soon.


  6. Happy new year!

    I hope you enjoyed Owl and the Japanese Circus. Really fun book. And Red Rising! I loved that one…just in time for Golden Son too, which is incredible.


    1. I’m glad you liked Owl. I did, too. I just have to finish my review. And I loved Red Rising. So glad I got it done in time for Golden Son to come out.
