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.
Not much happened this week. I have been having some minor sore throat issues for the past several days. I don't know what is causing it but I've been drinking lots of tea to help. This week I have to go to the dentist because a piece of my tooth broke off. I'm not in any pain and it was a small piece so hopefully I won't lose the tooth or need any expensive procedure. If it isn't my car, it's my teeth. Grr.
In positive news I had a great evening book discussion with some new people showing up. Everyone liked Little Women but some people ended up with copies that only had the first part of the story. Thankfully they'd seen the movie so they could participate in the discussion. I also have a vacation planned for this spring. My parents and I will be going to Savannah to see my uncle and aunt. It's nice to have something to look forward to.
At the library I am planning more programs. I haven't made much progress with the Peeps Diorama contest idea. I also have to decide if I am going to charge for attendance at our paint night. It is so expensive and I know of another library that charged patrons half the price (the Friends of the Library paid the other half). I have never charged for any of my programs so I'm a little worried about even charging half price.
I know Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow but it is supposed to warm up here later this week and I hope spring is around the corner. Besides, what do groundhogs know about the weather? :) Have a great week!
Last week on my blog:
Favorite Graphic Novels (post)
On Second Thought by Kristan Higgins (review)
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott (reread)
The Romance Reader's Guide to Life by Sharon Pywell
To my surprise I did like this book and got sucked into the story. My favorite part was reading about Neave and her sister, their makeup business and the suspense plot. In between are chapters of The Pirate Lover, Neave's favorite romance novel (it ties in with the main story).
March: Book Two by John Lewis
I thought this was really good. This second volume covered Lewis's time as a Freedom Rider and the March on Washington.
March: Book Three by John Lewis
Currently listening to:
Starflight by Melissa Landers (reread)
On my TBR pile:
My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella
While I've lost interest in the Becky Bloomwood books I'm hoping that this will be better.
The Chilbury Ladies Choir by Jennifer Ryan
I think this sounds really good and I have high hopes for it. It is set in an English village during WWII and the synopsis reminds me of the TV series Homefires as well as The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (it is also told in letters).
New books received:
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas (for review)
My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella (for review)
Swimming Lessons by Claire Fuller (won)
