It's Sunday Post time! This is hosted by the awesome Caffeinated Book Reviewer and gives us all a chance to recap our week!
What I Got
The Ghosts of Peppernell Manor by Amy Reade - this is for a blog tour next month and I'm excited about it. I love ghost stories and this one involves refurbishing a plantation house outside Charleston, SC which is one of my favorite cites. (Blog Tour)
Second Chances by Stacy Finz - I really enjoyed the first one in this series and though I haven't technically read the second yet I couldn't resist picking up the third. (NetGalley)
Nothing like a Cowboy by Donna Alward - I loved Alward's The House on Blackberry Hill so even though I'm not a huge cowboy fan I thought I'd give this a try. (NetGalley)
Plantation Shudders by Ellen Byron - There's a mystery in a plantation turned bed and breakfast. You know I can't resist these things. (NetGalley)
The Canterbury Sisters by Kim Wright - The blurb mentioned Jojo Moyes and the story involves woman taking the ashes of her recently deceased mother along with seven other women on a 60 miles pilgrimage to Canterbury Cathedral. I love these kind of ensemble cast stories. (NetGalley)
Making Your Mind Up by Jill Mansell - I know nothing about this other than it's by Jill Mansell and I love the previous book of her's that I read. (NetGalley)
Reading: The Dead Play On by Heather Graham and Great Expectations by Charles Dickens for The Reading Assignment Challenge.
Listening: Nothing. With spring break coming up there really isn't time to start another audio book so I'll wait until we get back to download a new one.
Watching: I've been catching up on NCIS and NCIS: New Orleans. I forgot how much I liked both those shows.
Off the Blog:
Our spring break starts this week so I'm taking the Tornado, Paul and Emma off to visit my grandparents in south Mississippi. It's always lots of fun. They have lots of land and dogs and the older kids go off and explore the woods and the Tornado and I run around. J has to stay which is too bad but he'll have a nice quiet week at home. Since I'll be out of town I won't be doing much blog visiting but I hope to catch up when I get back.
Paul officially got his license so I'm completely out of the driving the older kids around business. It's very nice especially considering that Paul frequently works the morning shift which means one of us had to get him to work at 6AM on a Saturday or Sunday which was not fun!
Other than that we don't have too much going on. The inside work has been finished up at the rental house and J has some outside projects to tackle over there. Hopefully we'll get a tenant soon.
It's finally started to warm up which means it's time to start thinking about my garden! I'm hoping to get the beds cleaned out when I get home and will start figuring out what I want to plant. I can't wait to have fresh tomatoes!
