It's Sunday so time to link up with The Caffeinated Reader to talk about what's happening on and off the blog!
What I Got:
Dreaming Spies by Laurie R. King - This is the most recent in the Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes series which is one of my favorites. I'm a little behind but this doesn't come out until toward the end of February so hopefully I'll have time to catch up before my review is due.
Tim Cratchit's Christmas Carol by Jim Piecuch - Christmas Carol part 2 told through the eyes of Tiny Tim all dressed up.
Tagged for Death by Sherry Harris - It's a new cozy mystery series featuring a bargain hunter. Couldn't resist!
If You've Got It Haunt it by Rose Pressey - Another cozy mystery series this one featuring a vintage clothing store and ghosts.
All of these are from NetGalley
Reading: The Woman Who Would Be King by Kara Cooney and Deadly Tasting Jean-Pierre Alaux and Noel Balen. So far I'm enjoying both very much.
Listening: I took a break from listening while we were on vacation so I'm still about halfway through with The Lost Art of Mixing by Erica Bauermeister.
Watching: I missed all the shows last week since we were out of town so I'm going to be playing catch up for most of this week. I'm think I'm looking forward to NCIS and NCIS; New Orleans the most.
Off the Blog:
We had a fantastic time on vacation! The weather couldn't have been better. Paul and Emma spent a lot of time exploring and going down to the river. J and I took the Tornado and did a little road exploring and I've now seen more of extremely rural south Mississippi than I ever expected to see. I did get some reading done and am looking forward to getting caught up on my blog visiting to see what everyone else has been up to this week.
Paul opening the box that contained his birthday llama. The Alabama blanket is a gift from his girlfriend. The rest of us try and pretend he's not an Alabama fan.
Emma on the drive down. I think she got 6 books read in the 4 nights we were there.
The Tornado and Duffy - the world's biggest and sweetest dog. He seems to be a Mastiff/St. Bernard/Bloodhound mix.
More running. He does that a lot.
