Sunday Post #99


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 hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving! I ate so much I felt full the next morning, too! Had a nice day with my daughter, her husband and of course our grand kids. 

I'm getting this up late today because I binge watched the new season of Virgin River which just came out Friday. I was hoping they'd be more faithful to the book plots, but no. Still, the scenery is gorgeous, and I like the actors they picked. Jack's Bar and Mel's cabin are perfect!  I binged because I wanted to see things resolved and got another cliffhanger! Ack! Will I have to wait another year? Who knows.

Sleeping Murder and Emerald Blaze are both audio re-reads. Loved both. I've always thought Sleeping Murder to be a tragic story, but I guess murder usually is, right? You Had Me at Hockey was my first experience with Kelly Jamieson and I really enjoyed it! Long Road to Mercy was good. I have the next two books to go.

Continuing with the Atlee Pine series. Broke down and grabbed an audio copy of The Survivors. I love the sound of This Cowboy of Mine. First time reading R.C. Ryan. I've heard good things about Chloe Neill and seen The Bright and Breaking Sea around, so I requested a library copy. We'll see how it goes.


Binged the whole second series yesterday. See above for my thoughts. Anyone else watch it?

How was your week?


  1. The first book in that Jamieson series is even better. I loved Otis. Glad you had fun with the family and are finding time to get your Virgin River fix.

  2. Glad to hear you had a good Thanksgiving this year. Despite everything. Hope this next week is even better! :)

  3. Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving!

    I've heard Virgin River is good. We almost started it the other night but ended up watching Enola Holmes.

  4. Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving, Rachel. I’ve heard a lot of people say they enjoy the Virgin River show more than the books. I don’t have Netflix (not a TV watcher) so I take their word for it. I only read the first book and decided it wasn’t really for me. I do remember liking Jack, though. :) I’ve been meaning to try something by Kelly Jamieson for ages.

  5. I'm glad to hear you had a nice Thanksgiving. My daughter and grandson was here with me and we made a nice dinner and enjoyed it. It was different but all in all it was nice.

  6. Sounds like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and fun that you got to binge the second season. I'm glad some of the settings were right even if the plot went off in a new direction. Looks like you had a good week of reading, too.

    Have a good week, Rachel!

  7. I have heard the Virgin River series is good, glad you enjoy it and sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving. And yes I felt as stuffed as our Turkey LOL I hope you enjoy that R.C. Ryan I am really curious about her as I adore cowboys.

  8. Oh I am happy to hear you had a nice holiday with family and did some things you just want to do. You are reading some great stuff which I liked or plan to read.

    Anne - Books of My Heart This is my Sunday Post

  9. I am so glad that you had a nice Thanksgiving with your family. A re-read of Ilona Andrews sounds like the perfect thing! I hope you enjoy your new books and have a great week!

  10. Oh no, not another cliffie! I love a good netflix binge
