Sunday Post: Jan 18


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

We got a tiny (very tiny) bit of snow this week. Forecast was 2 inches, we got about 1/2 inch and the schools were all closed! That’s the most snow we’ve had this winter!

My husband got home on Saturday, but he was sick all week while he was working out-of-town. I think he probably has the flu so I’m nursing him and making him take it easy. He’s ready to drink warm liquids and sleep. We both got flu shots last October, but the shot’s not working too well this year.

I spent another week sorting and organizing, but also getting the last of my books from 2014 set up for review. And fitting in some reading, too!

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. Oh your poor husband! I’ve been lucky and have only had the flu once but it was absolutely miserable. Hope he’s better soon. I can’t wait for your Top Ten post! I’m sure I’ll find some new authors to check out. Have a great week and stay healthy!


    1. He thinks he’s feeling better so talking about us going out, but I don’t think so!

      I hope you find a few new authors from my post, Katherine, though I feel kind of like my favorites are obvious. Well, we’ll see, I guess.


  2. Ooo, I’ll have to check out that list of anticipated books for 2015. Sorry to hear your husband’s been so ill. 😦

    Good luck with your organizing and happy reading!


    1. Thanks, Bea. I’m about done with the organizing for now (not finished, but ready to be done!) Yeah, I hope my husband is better soon.


  3. I feel for your hubby. They said the shot this year was only 23% effective. I cannot believe snow closed for 1/2 an inch of the kids were happy though. Hope your week is amazing and everyone stays healthy


  4. Your husband is lucky to have you to care for him. That flu is nasty this year and my shot didn’t help me one bit.
    Lovely books this week. The Darkest Part of the Forest is on one of my reading challenges. Can’t wait to read it.


    1. I hope he still feels lucky to have me!

      I’m looking forward to reading The Darkest Part of the Forest, too. Hope to get to it soon.


  5. Nice reviews of The Falconer- I was on the fence for that one, glad to see it was good for the most part. Not crazy about the cliffhanger, but can’t have everything I guess. 🙂 Half a King I’ve heard good thing about too, so will be curious to see what you think.

    Have a great week, and that upcoming books post was a good find too.


  6. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on Dirty Magic as I really, really enjoyed that one myself. I hope that your husband feels better soon! Have a great week 🙂


  7. It is NEVER fun to take care of a sick husband. They are just so needy. Take plenty of airborne so you don’t get what he has and have a wonderful week of reading.
