Sunday Post #98

 


The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated reviewer book blog, and is a post to recap my bookish and non-bookish things from the last week.

I'm up in Northern California, very north, almost at the Oregon border. My husband and I are enjoying a long weekend away.  There are elk and we came upon a herd grazing!  So beautiful. 


We had dinner at a restaurant and I was impressed by the precautions taken to stay safe. The rest of our time we've just cooked at our place. We've walked along the beaches where there were a few others strolling as well, but we all stayed away from each other. All in all, it's been a nice weekend away. We'll be traveling home tomorrow (Sunday).

Visions of Heat is the second book in the Psy-Changeling series by Nalini Singh. I had been meaning to continue reading the series after book one, but kept forgetting to get back to it. Anne @Books of My Heart is hosting a new read-along for the series so this nudged me to finally jump back in and I loved it. I read another Nalini Singh, the latest Guild Hunter installment. Loved The Hummingbird and Titus' story! Fatal Deception was a fun action filled romantic suspense.

All the Colors of the Night is the second in Krentz's paranormal mystery/romantic suspense series. I've been on my library wait list for Annie's Song (audio) for a while and it finally came through.

Uncomfortable at times, but funny!

  2. Rachel, great to hear you had a lovely weekend away and I hope the break did you good. My week has mainly just been work, as we are still in lockdown, but it was a little easier this week. Take care and happy reading! 🙂

  3. We had hinds on the side of the road to school this week, elks are more seasonal and exotic. We are on lockdown here so I'm glad there are people around the world able to travel and go to restaurants :) Hopefully, soon for us ?... Every time I see that Borat picture, I can't help laughing !

  12. Seeing just the picture of the elk herd is soothing. Glad you enjoyed your get away. Fun that you're getting back into the Psy-Changeling series. I'm going to try to follow the readathon in audio since I did print the first time through. Annie's Song is still one I want to read or listen to.
    I've always been curious about Borat, but not enough to try. Maybe someday. :)

  14. Thanks for joining me on the Psy-Changeling series. I'm always a bit apprehensive when I start something new to me and don't know how it will go. So glad you are able to get away. Happy Thanksgiving! I wish you wellness and some great reads this week!

  17. What a stunning photo, it sounds idyllic. I’ve not watched either Borat films, I think I’d be cringing behind my cushion!
