This Week in Reading - October 29

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 Night Island by Jayne Ann Krentz - I always enjoy this author's books and I really enjoyed the first book in this series so I'm excited to pick this one up.  (Publisher)

The Lantern's Dance by Laurie R. King - The Mary Russell series is one of my favorites and I'm looking forward to reading about the next adventures of Mary and Holmes.  (Publisher)

A Smoking Bun by Ellie Alexander - This is one of my favorite cozy series and I'm looking forward to reading this one.  (Publisher)

The Other Side of Disappearing by Kate Claybourn - I don't think I know anything about the author but the premise of this one really appealed to me.  (Publisher)

One Night by Georgina Cross - I've read one book by this author before and really enjoyed it so I couldn't resist this one.  (Purchased)

Murder in the Family by Cara Hunter - This was one of those "Blind Dates with a Book" purchases and I'm really excited about it.  It looks really interesting. (Purchased)

A Haunting on the Hill by Elizabeth Hand - I love The Haunting of Hill House so I'm interested to read this take on it.  (Purchased)


Reading:  The Proof of the Pudding by Rhys Bowen and Death by Dumpling by Vivian Chien

Listening:  Read and Buried by Eva Gates

It has been gorgeous this week.  Clear skies, low humidity and even some fall-ish temperatures in the mid-70s.  Rover and I have been very much enjoying outside time!  I've been subjecting him to some photo shoots but I don't think he minds.

We went to a book fair at a local brewery this week and had a great time.  It was a little crowded but I bought some good looking books and we had amazing food and I was kind of proud of myself for seeing an event I wanted to go to and then actually going to it!

Other than that Will and I have been hard by allergies (something involving cotton fields that gets us every year around this time) and have been a bit sluggish.  We've been getting school done and dog classes have been going well.  In between I'm trying to get some rest.

Have a great week and happy reading!


  1. That book event sounds fun! Krentz is an author I've thought about reading, and I enjoyed the Rhys Bowen I tried a few years ago.

    Hope you're having a great weekend :)

  2. Nice haul. I am excited about the Krentz novel.

  3. Your dog is so cute! And I'm curious about Hand's A Haunting on the Hill, too.

  4. I support the Rover content! It has been glorious this week. I see so many things I might like to attend but often want to stay home more. *shrugs* So good for you going and enjoying.

    Anne - Books of My Heart This is my Sunday Post

  5. Great set of incoming books Katherine. Actually I like JAK suspense books and I need to see about that series at the library. Rover is looking very handsome. What a nuisance over the allergies, all the things that try us so much.

  6. I love going to book events but I've never gone to one where there was food. My daughter, her husband and kids all have allergies so I know it's not fun at all. I hope you're both over it soon. I love the photos of Rover, especially the top one, what a great pose!

  7. I haven't read Jayne Ann Krentz in a long time. I always used to love her books. Love the pics of Rover. How cute. Hope you have a great week!

  8. Rover is so stinking adorable! The book fair sounds like it was a lot of fun. I am glad that you were able to go. I hope that this is a great week for you!

  9. All the authors new to me except Rhys Bowen whom I love to read

  10. Hi, Rover! 👋

    I hope the fall like weather made coping with your allergies easier. 😌

    Have a wonderful week with lots of rest! Happy Halloween. 🎃

  11. Rover is living the good life — what a cutie! Krentz writes some good romantic suspense. Happy Halloween!
