The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. It's Monday, What Are You Reading is a fun weekly meme now hosted by Kathryn at Book Date, where we share what we've read and reviewed over the past week and what we plan to read next.
It was another quiet week for me. Work has been busy, particularly in the mornings. I had one morning by myself at the help desk and the phone was ringing off the hook. I barely managed to keep up till a coworker came up to help. I guess that makes the days go faster! This week we are supposed to get snow, possibly as much as 6 inches but I am keeping my fingers crossed that it is 1-2 inches instead. I plan to go to the grocery store later today to stock up just in case.
I am working through some programming ideas I have like a chocolate tasting that I hope to do on the night of our second Edible Book Festival this April. The time is just flying by! I need to get things together so we can advertise next month. I had hoped to have a local chocolatier come in but that doesn't seem to be working out so I think I will be running the program myself. Thankfully a librarian at another library near by gave me some really good ideas from her own chocolate tasting program she did last year. I also reached out to a programming group I belong to on Facebook and they have been helpful too. I hope to have the details ironed out by the end of the week.
I started watching Grease Live! on Hulu this past week. I like it so far but it isn't as good as the film version which is what I am most familiar with. I've also been watching old episodes of Foyle's War on Netflix. I enjoyed that show when it was on PBS. I found last week's episode of The Flash to be a snooze but this week should be interesting as they travel to Earth 2 and Killer Frost is introduced. Arrow is much more entertaining at the moment and Agent Carter is pretty good too.

Last week on my blog:
Top Ten Historical Settings (post)
The Things We Keep by Sally Hepworth (review)
Starflight by Melissa Landers
I liked this one a lot. It is a fun space adventure story that I think readers who don't usually read science fiction would also enjoy. My review will be up later this week.
These Vicious Masks by Tarun Shanker and Kelly Zekas
I originally thought this book was set during the Regency (probably because the book description mentions Jane Austen) but it is set in the 1880s which I would have realized if I'd read the description more carefully! I think it is entertaining.
The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien (reread)
I've made more progress and am now in Lothlorien. I hope to finish The Fellowship of the Ring this week.
What I might read next:
The Impostor Queen by Sarah Fine

Passenger by Alexandra Bracken (library book)
