Sunday Post: August 28

Sunday-PostThis is a great meme to take part in every week and I thank Kimba for hosting it!

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.

Last week–home and blog

We’re in Illinois this weekend helping our older daughter move. Luckily, she’s just 10 minutes from her old place so that helps with move plus we have five people helping so it’s going pretty fast.

My younger daughter and I drove over on Friday evening and my husband met us here in Illinois. He was in eastern Iowa all last week helping out his dad with doctors’ appointments, yard work and any other chores that needed to get done.

We’ll all go back home on Sunday.


I had a frustrating week. Lots of little things. Our house in Maryland, my husband being gone, etc., etc. I talked in one of my posts about reading part of the wrong book in a series. That was certainly part of the frustrations of the week.


I watched a few mystery series this week mostly on Netflix.

The blog

A few posts and a book read plus I got one of the books I’ve been looking forward to all year from NetGalley–Stalking Ground by Margaret Mizushima.

What did you do last week? What books did you collect? What are you planning?



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 hate weeks that just seem full of tiny frustrations. Hopefully next week is simpler. Stalking Ground is on my TBR. It looks really good and I’m curious about Rose Daughter. Have a great week!


    1. Thanks, Katherine! I loved Stalking Ground. The first book in the series was great, too. I’ve read a few other books by Robin McKinley and really liked them. Apparently she’s written three Beauty and the beast retellings. And this is one of them. My daughter loved it when she read it years ago.
