I am linking up to the Sunday Post hosted by the wonderful Kim of Caffeinated Book Reviewer, where participants recap our week, talk about what we are reading, share any new books that have come our way, and whatever else we want to talk about.
I am playing catch up with commenting and blog hopping, as well as preparing upcoming blog posts. My offline life has just been too busy to fit everything in. I know you understand how that goes. I hope you are all well.
What I Am Reading: I finished a couple books this week: One Fell Sweep by Ilona Andrews, the third book in the Innkeeper Chronicles, and Susan Elia MacNeal's The Prime Minister's Secret Agent, the fourth book in the Maggie Hope series set during World War II. I enjoyed both immensely. They were the best in their respective series yet.
This weekend I am trying to get a little ahead in Les Misérables and War and Peace before beginning my next book. As today is the kick off of The One With a Twist phase of #COYER Winter Switch Challenge, for which I will be reading solely e-books, it seems the perfect time to start on my February TBR List winner. I also need to start The Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henríquez for my Going Postal book group.
What I Am Listening To: This week I finished listening to The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena, narrated by Kirsten Potter. Now I know what all the fuss is about.
What I Am Watching: I finished the twelfth season of Supernatural. Dare I hope that the deaths at the end of the season are like all the others and not really the end? I sure hope so! Now I just have to wait for the current season to finish and be released on Netflix. I have also started watching the second season of Travelers, which I am trying to get my mind around a bit. Maybe I should have gone back and re-watched the first season. Mouse has gotten us into Annedroids, an Amazon Prime television show. I am not quite as taken with it as I was with Just Add Magic, but it's cute. Annedroids is about girl who lives in a junkyard and makes androids and her two neighborhood friends.
We are also watching the Winter Olympics. I enjoyed what I was able to catch of the opening ceremonies.
This weekend will be a relatively quiet one, thank goodness. We had our first cookie booth for the cookie season last weekend, but aren't scheduled for another one until next weekend. And we won't be running around preparing for something dance or school related. Maybe finally we can relax a little. After Karate.
What I Am Grateful For: I have the best cat. She's been especially cuddly lately, and I am loving the extra affection. I am also grateful for blanket/pillow forts and Thin Mints.
Tell me about what you have been up to! What are you reading, listening to and watching? How was your week? Do you have anything planned for this coming week?
Thank you for helping me decide what book from my TBR collection I should read next:
My TBR List is a meme hosted by the awesome Michelle at Because Reading. It’s a fun way to choose a book from your TBR pile to read. The 1st Saturday of every month, I will list 3 books I am considering reading and take a poll as to which you think I should read. I will read the winner that month, and my review will follow (unfortunately, not likely in the same month, but eventually--that's all I can promise).
Thank you for voting in my February TBR poll! I actually was thinking the results would be a little closer than they were. I hope to read all three books this month, but I will definitely be reading the winner first! I may not be able to resist reading the fifth book in the series as well though, so time will tell.
As you can see, Marked in Flesh (The Others, #4) by Anne Bishop is the clear winner, with 51.4% of the vote (18 votes). I am very excited about finally diving into this one. I am not sure why I have been putting it off given how much I loved the first three books in the series.
