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.
Today will be a busy day for us--lots of running around. I am looking forward to a lazy day tomorrow. Hopefully I can do some of that catching up on my blog (and commenting) that I keep saying I will do. It has been a crazy few weeks with no end yet in sight.
My mom got home safely and her surgery yesterday went well from all reports. I couldn't be there for her, but the waiting room was full of family and friends who could. She is home now and resting. We should hear from the doctor in a few days. From what I heard this morning from my brother, my mom is already up and trying to do things around her house. She isn't one to stay down for long--even when she should be resting! Thanks again for all your prayers and kind thoughts!
My back is still giving me a bit of trouble. I mostly am having to be careful with how I bend and how much I carry. I made the mistake last night of loading the laundry basket up too much with clean clothes and then carrying it up the stairs. It made for a rough night and little sleep.
My Oasis arrived in the mail early this week! I haven't actually used it yet, other than to set it up. I want to start with the "right" book. It's more compact than I imagined it to be, but I love the feel of it in my hands. I think I am going to like it quite a bit!
What I Am Reading: I really struggled early in the week with what to read next (too many choices!). I kept going with Les Misérables and War and Peace as a result. That isn't a bad thing, of course, but I don't want to get too far ahead. I am really enjoying both now, so it is not hard to do.
I started on Jean Johnson's Dawn of the Flame Sea and am now nearly done with it. I do not know what I expected, but it wasn't what I got. The jury is still out on this one. The book got off to an interesting start though. It is lagging right now though, so I hope something happens soon to pick things up.
What I Am Watching: I am caught up with The Walking Dead, but will likely not get to see the season finale until later next week (I do not watch television live very often). I missed all of last season of Fear of the Walking Dead, but do plan to watch the third season anyway. If only for Morgan. I also have been watching Timeless, which I kind of like, but am still on the fence about--just as I have been since the show first aired. Why do I keep watching, you ask? It has everything to do with the history aspect. I am not at all thrilled about the current turn of events in the show though.
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).
It was a close race, but it looks like The Girl From the Savoy by Hazel Gaynor won with 12 votes to The Girl Who Came Home's 11 votes. A Memory of Violets only received 4 votes in the end. I am really excited to be jumping into a Hazel Gaynor novel, and look forward to reading The Girl From the Savoy. It does sound good! Thank you to all who voted in this month's poll!
What is good for a doll and a cat is good for a dog (my mom's) too.
