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:
Pursuit of a Parcel by Patricia Wentworth
Who Pays the Piper? by Patricia Wentworth - I'm so excited about both of these! Patricia Wentworth is one of my very favorite mystery authors (2nd only to Agatha Christie herself) and these are 2 I've been wanting to read but couldn't find. I snapped them up as soon as I saw them on NetGalley and can't wait to read them. Prepare for a Patricia Wentworth project coming your way! (NetGalley)
Reading: Finishing up Woman in White by Wilkie Collins and am planning to start Grape Olive Pig by Matt Goulding today. Also The Flower Arrangement by Ella Griffin.
Listening: Moonraker by Ian Fleming. I've heard the movie is really dreadful but so far I must admit this is my favorite book! It's kind of a softer side of Bond in a way.
Watching: I'm catching up on Blindspot on Hulu and am liking it though it is does drift a little into over-angst. J and I have been enjoying The Big Bang Theory though are on the fence about The Great Indoors. I like the concept but the pilot was a little stilted. Hoping it improves!
Off the Blog:
Halloween went well. We did end up going with friends and while I was a little worried about it going in it ended up going really well and was lots of fun. I've been sneaking Butterfingers, Baby Ruths and Snickers bars all week!
Well I had my allergy test earlier this week. I had one done before almost 20 years ago and while I remembered the skin pricks I had forgotten (or hadn't done) the shots portion of the event. I've about had my fill of shots though I did throw in a flu shot because at that point I figured I might as well. I was surprised to discover that I'm not allergic to that much but unfortunately the things I am allergic too I'm REALLY allergic too and the thing I happen to be really severely off the charts allergic too is dust mites. Which are everywhere and impossible to completely get rid of. Also, shrimp is trying to kill me so I now have my very own Epi-pen. Is it possible to make those things any bigger? How on earth do men carry them around? This weekend is going to be spent allergy-proofing the bedroom using the paperwork and suggestions from the doctor.
I've spent a lot of this week boxing up books that I've been cramming into all available nooks and crannies. It's been quite a to do trying to come up with a record keeping system so I have some hope of finding them again at some point! Sorting through all the books has made me want to just curl up and read for hours but with all the organizing there hasn't been time! I'm hoping next week allows for more reading time but is there really such a thing as enough reading time?
