This Week in Reading - January 19

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:

A Field Guide to Homicide by Lynn Cahoon - I wasn't going to get this one but then I saw it and I'm just not that strong.  (NetGalley)

Claw Enforcement - I really enjoy this series and I'm excited to read this next one. (Publisher)

Buried to the Brim by Jenn McKinlay - I love Jenn McKinlay but somehow I've never read any of this series set around a hat store in England. (Publisher)


Reading:  Fatal Roots by Sheila Connolly and Duchess in Love by Eloisa James

Listening:  I'm finishing up Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis and about to start A Perilous Undertaking by Deanna Raybourn

Watching:  We are really loving Disney +.  We watched The Princess and the Frog and it was fun to see a Disney movie that takes place in a city we're so familiar with.  We've also been really loving The Imagineering Story too.

Off the Blog:

We had a quiet week this week.  School is rolling along and he had 2 classes at the school he's signed up for this week and a birthday party this weekend.  Something about a kid's birthday party just absolutely wears me out!  I've done some drawer cleaning out and was shocked at the amount of junk I've been hoarding.  I have 3 empty drawers now.

We are heading back to New Orleans soon and I'm glad because I'm getting stir crazy being in one place for so long.  Now I have to find some winter/spring stuff to do there.  I feel like I did a good job with finding Christmas stuff so I want to keep that rolling.

  4. Seems like your reading is well on track. Ah, three empty drawers, I be that feels so good. A little goes a long way.

  5. It was a Lynn Cahoon book you had to get it! I have it for review on audio!

    Have a great week and happy reading!
    Week in Review

  6. I have more than one draw that needs cleaning out I must admit.

    Wishing you a great reading week

  7. Kudos to you for the purge of the drawers. I need to do that with a cabinet I have. I couldn't even tell you what in the heck is in there Kook Katherine.(lol) I've been hearing that Netflix lost millions of subscribers since Disney+ came on board, and I suspect they'll lose a lot more unless they make some changes. Looking forward to hearing news from New Orleans. Hugs, RO

  8. I never much liked going to birthday parties as a kid but I did like the cake!!!

  9. I'm glad you have adjusted well to the traveling and know you are headed back to NOLA. Good for you on the cleaning! We all have too much stuff and it so satisfying to get it organized and get rid of things you don't use / need. Have a wonderful week and enjoy your reads!

  10. I love clearing clutter. I hope you have a safe trip. Do you know it you will stay or are you only going to be there for a short time? Moving around must be hard.

    I hope you have an awesome week, Katherine! Happy Reading!

  11. Birthday parties are exhausting. I don't know why either. I need to try Lynn Cahoon sometime. I am not sure if she is local but I see that she is at my local library often. I can't wait to see what kind of adventures you find the next time you go out of town.

  12. Yes... I don't miss children's birthday parties! Glad it was a productive week - and that you are looking forward to the move back to New Orleans and I hope the coming week is enjoyable with plenty of good books, Katherine.

  13. My daughter has been loving Disney+ and catching up on all the princess movies. The Princess and the Frog isn't one we have gotten to yet though. I keep trying to convince her we need to watch Mulan, but she isn't interested. :-( I hope you have a great week, Katherine and enjoy your reading!

  14. I have to read Lynn Cahoon's Cat Latimer series. I love her Tourist Trap books. Have a great week!

  15. Kids parties wear me out too. They have so much energy, perpetually moving!
    I’ll be interested in hearing what you think about the Rachel Hollis book.

  16. That's a great cover for A Field Guide to Homicide. I've been enjoying Disney+ too. Enjoy your trip to Nola, and happy reading!

  17. Yes.. Birthdays are definitely exhausting!
    We are loving Disney + too. I love being able to watch oldies and new movies with our little girl.
    Have a great week and happy reading!

  18. I love to entertain but yeah, it can be exhausting. I'm a perfectionist and stress out over everything. However, I know the event will turn out great in the end.
