Sunday Post: Mar 1

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

The weather continues to surprise me. Snow, sleet and freezing rain last Sunday and we’re supposed to get it all again this Sunday.

I’m trying to get all my COYER eligible books reviewed so I posted four reviews this week and have another four reviews for next week.

Next Week

Home & blog

I’m getting ready to visit one of my daughters next weekend. As usual lots to get done before I leave. We’re going to be going to a wedding and then at the end of the month we’re headed to Ireland for a week with a bunch of other family members. So I’ll be gone most of the month of March, but able to blog at least some of the time.

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. It looks like you have some great reads for that frigid weather. I keep hoping for spring. It was sunny and 70s yesterday and now it’s drizzling and cold today. Drat! LOL

    1. Oh, I do have some very good books, Laura! Sunny and the 70’s is amazing! We got up to near 50 today, but we’re supposed to get sleet and freezing rain tonight and 4 or more inches of snow tomorrow. I’m hoping this is the last hurrah for winter! I hope your weather warm again.

  2. I look forward to seeing what you think of A Beautiful Blue Death. I’ve had it on my shelf for years but for some reason never picked it up. You got some great books this week! I have the Morgan and am really excited about it and any week that involves getting a Crombie is a good week. Stay warm and have a great week!

    1. Thanks, Katherine! My review for A Beautiful Blue Death is up tomorrow on my blog. I liked it and look forward to reading more in the series. I was going to get the Crombie book from the library, but realized I couldn’t get it read before I leave for the rest of the month–thus, I decided to treat myself so I can read it in the next week or so.

      I had planned to participate more in the weekly events on COYER, but I’ve been busy since the first of the year.

  4. Looks like you have lots of fun things planned, both bookish and in real life. Our weather here has been awful too, unfortunately. Lots of snowy, icy days where the best thing to do is to stay home and read 🙂
