Sunday Post–Jan 11

rp_sundaypostmeme13.jpg

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 got distracted after I got home this week. I worked on organizing my craft room. It was pretty messed up after my Christmas rush to finish Christmas cards and some gifts. And the new year seems like a  good time to reorganize. I thought I had scheduled my reviews, but discovered I hadn’t because I had more to add. Oh, well, they’ll go up next week!

I still have some work to do around the house, but I plan to work more on the blog, too. My husband is out-of-town for work still so I should get a lot done.

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’m always far more productive when my husband is out of town. Don’t know what that’s about! I reorganized my pantry and it feels so great to have everything be exactly where it’s supposed to be again. Enjoy your reading and your new books! Have a great week!

    1. Once the reorganizing gets done it’s so great, Katherine. My problem sometimes is that I get off to a great start and then lose steam. I have a couple projects like that at the moment! I hope to work on them this week as well as lots of reading!

  2. Foxglove Summer looks interesting, I like the idea of urban fantasy but don’t always like the execution, or the books themselves. too picky I guess. 🙂 Anyway this one appeals, i like the idea. I keep seeing books on your blog i want to try. 🙂

    Have a great week.

    1. This is kind of a different urban fantasy, Greg. I like that it’s set in England and has a guy for the main character. And I’ve liked each book better than the last. I’m glad you see books on my blog you want to try. I hope you’ll get the chance to try a few of them.

  3. I just started Winter at the Door and I’m super excited to read it. I love a good thriller and have high hopes for this one! Plus, it is the beginning to a new series and I’m a series addict. LOL! Kinda kidding but not really. I will be looking forward to your thoughts on that one when you finish! Have a great week!

    1. I’m hoping to read it soon! I’m having to keep myself from putting down one of the books I’m reading right now and read Foxglove instead…lol.
