Sunday Post: Jul 19


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

It’s hot and humid still…in the 90’s during the day and 70’s at night for the next few days. I haven’t spent much time outside…lol. My allergies were bothering me all week so I haven’t slept well which means I haven’t done much during the day including not much reading and blogging. I probably need to go see my doctor to change my allergy meds.

What did you do last week? What books did you collect? 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 sorry to hear about your allergies. I’m getting a bit of break now but I know swollen eyes and sneezing is coming. Hope you can find an allergy medicine that works for you. Looks like you’ve got a fun trip coming up! Enjoy your family reunion and have a great week!


    1. Thanks, Katherine.

      I’m tired of the allergies. I hope I can get them under control at least and before my trip.


  2. Allergies – ugh. That would account for the stuff in my throat that kept me from singing well at this week’s lesson. Time to break out the meds again, I guess.

    A family vacation in northern Wisconsin sounds wonderful! And hopefully, a little cooler than it is around here. I hope you have a lovely time! We’re headed the opposite direction in a few weeks – the Southwest.

    Is it just me, or are this summer’s SYNC books not as interesting as last summer’s books? I’ve only downloaded a few – and not most of the classics because we either already had them or had read them.

    I can’t wait to read your take on Nice Dragons Finish Last, and also The Firebird. I read Named of the Dragon recently and really liked it, but my review won’t post until early Sept.

    Have a wonderful week and a wonderful trip!


    1. Allergies are no fun. I hope yours get better, Lark.

      The weather in northern Wisconsin should be wonderful! Can’t wait!

      I’ll look forward to your review of Named of the Dragon.


  3. Oh, I love the list of books you’re reading. Some of those are on my wish list. I’m sorry to hear about your allergies, good luck getting them under control. Have a great trip!


    1. Thanks, Bea! I’m having trouble getting back to a couple of the books I’m reading, but I am enjoying what I am reading at the moment.


  4. It’s been hot here too. I can’t really complain about the humidity- well , maybe a little- but it hasn’t been too bad, compared to some years. Still it’s July now and we’ll get it sooner or later. 🙂 Looking forward to seeing what you thought of The Deep End.

    Have a nice week!


    1. I guess our humidity is supposed to get a little better in a day or two. That will be nice.

      I really liked The Deep End, Greg. I think I saw the book on your blog so thank you for bringing it to my attention!


  5. Lots of wonderful books this week. It’s been hotter than hot and stickier than sticky here. The nights haven’t cooled down much either. Good thing I have a pool or I’d get home from work and hibernate in the AC. LOL


    1. I like your description of the weather, Laura! A pool would be wonderful in weather like this. As it is I hibernate in the AC.


  6. Sorry to hear your allergies are bothering you.

    I haven’t read a lot of Tami Hoag but read her latest last year. I really should go back and read more as I enjoyed it.
