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.
It's been mostly a quiet week. We were home again and it was nice! I did a few workouts, went running and completed a puzzle while listening to The Girls Who Disappeared. I finished the puzzle late while listening and got so absorbed in the story I forgot to take a picture of the finished puzzle, but it was fun. Based on Wuthering Heights:
We binge watched The Undoing with Nicole Kidman last night. Was up until 1:30am to finish and find out who did it! Also watched The Lost City with Sandra Bullock, Tatum Channing, and Daniel Radcliff. Silly fun that had me laughing and also The Woman in the Window with Amy Adams based on the book by A.J. Finn. It was a reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window. I guess you can understand why I didn't get much reading done this last week. I haven't watched this much TV in ages.
I bought flowers for a fresh arrangement and there were some stems that had little nubs that looked like the may sprout so I put them in water and they've got leaves on them now. I bought rooting hormone so I can transplant them. Never done that before so I'm crossing my fingers it works. The directions say I need to use a mixture of peet moss and sand, but I'm wondering if it'll work in regular potting soil. I'll have to do some research.
I wish I would've noted the name of the rose, but it was a pretty yellow one. Maybe Brighton? Don't mind my patio chairs in the background, with no cushions, full of leaves. We had to put the cushions away because of the rain. We have quite a bit of fall/winter cleanup. Leaves need to dry out first.

All three audiobooks. Not one a review book. Eeeek! I'm currently listening to a review book (Exiles by Jane Harper) and loving it.
I'm excited for all of these! Jane & Edward is a Jane Eyre re-telling and it sounds really good. Vera Wong's Unsolicited Advice for Murders has an elderly sleuth and sounds fun! Love Allison Brennan and Karen Rose's mysteries and I think I've only read one from Lora Leigh, way back so we'll see.
Loved Don't Open the Door!
How was your week?
I think we have the same garden chairs! :)ReplyDelete
Hope you have a good week, Rachel!
I love them! With the cushions on, of course. They're Better Homes sold at Walmart. Such a good deal! Thanks, Nicci! Hope you have a lovely week, too.Delete
I hope you enjoy all of these when you get a chance to read them. Have a good week!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Cindy! You, too!Delete
I wanted to watch The woman in the Window (thought the book was pretty good) but never did. The Brennan book looks good too.ReplyDelete
Hope you're having a nice weekend :)
It was odd, but good. Kept me and my husband on the edge of our seat. Thanks, Greg! I hope you had a lovely weekend! :)Delete
Good luck with the flowers. I have fake plants in my apartment because I kill everything I touch. lolReplyDelete
Thanks, Mary! I hope I can get a growing rosebush to plant in the spring. Never propagated from a cutting so we'll see. I have plenty of fake plants too. Don't have to water them, lol. :)Delete
The puzzle that my daughter and I just finished today was so hard! I just love listening to audiobooks while working on puzzles. The one you did looks fun! Nice new reads this week. I have Vera Wong coming up soon.ReplyDelete
Sometimes they're not as much fun if they're super hard. It was a fun one, but not as fun as the Wysocki puzzles I usually do. I hope we both love Vera Wong!Delete
I'll be looking forward to seeing which rose bushes made it after the winter and some cut backs.ReplyDelete
I hope I'm able to get a growing rose bush from the cuttings. I'll keep you updated. :)Delete
I watched The Lost City a few weeks ago and enjoyed it. It's a bit silly, but a good time filler.ReplyDelete
Yes, it was fun but not anything more than that. Tried the new one with Jennifer Lopez and Josh Dumel and couldn't get through it. It was soooo bad! The Lost City was better.Delete
How nice that you had a quiet week. Good luck with those roses 🙂.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Lucy! We'll see.Delete
Vera Wong's Unsolicited Advice for Murders Looks like it could be funReplyDelete
Wishing you a great reading week
I'm hoping it will be!Delete
Look at that green thumb. Nice haul too. I see a few I want to know more about (Vera Wong and Jane & Edward). Hope they are all hits.ReplyDelete
We'll see about the green thumb, lol. I'm really excited for both!Delete
What a cool puzzle. But all that green grass... ugh! lol The Lost City looked funny. I haven't seen Sandra Bullock in anything in ages. Hope your week is off to a good start, Rachel!ReplyDelete
The green grass wasn't too bad, as it was broken up a lot. It ended up being a fun puzzle. The Lost City was funny! I enjoyed it. Thanks, Tanya! I hope you're week is going well too!Delete
Vera Wong's Unsolicited Advice for Murders sounds like a good read!ReplyDelete
I'm hoping it is!Delete
Yay books. Flowers :)ReplyDelete
And movie time. I enjoyed the Bullock one too
It was fun, right?Delete
Glad you got some workouts in! I ADORE puzzles, I love doing them while listening to audiobooks. I did see the ARC available for the Lora Leigh, its been a while since she has published anything, so I am intrigued about that one. I miss her Breeds books hahaReplyDelete
It had been a long time since I did puzzles, but my daughter got me back into them again. I have so many! I hope the Lora Leigh is good.Delete
You got some great books! I really enjoyed Exiles too. We started a puzzle a few months ago and haven't worked on since the first night. Eek.ReplyDelete
Anne - Books of My Heart This is my Sunday Post
I just finished Exiles and loved it. I can't stop thinking about the two mysteries and all involved. Kind of sad, but I was so thrilled that was Aaron finally getting some happiness in life. Maybe the puzzle isn't a fun one?Delete
Nice book haul! I'm loving that puzzle too. I always enjoyed reading the Bronte sisters when I was in college.ReplyDelete
Neat that you got those rose stems to leaf. Hopefully, they'll root for you so you have some pretty roses to plant. I know certain breeds of roses are really persnickety about their soil so smart of you to investigate that.ReplyDelete
Fun looking puzzle. I think it must be from the same family of puzzles as the World of Jane Austen one I did last fall. I have my eye on the World of Agatha Christie one I saw in the library catalogue.
I got the Karen Rose and Jesse Sutanto books for review, too. Enjoy your latest stack.
Have a good week, Rachel!
Good luck with gardening! Lol one of my favorite classics is Wuthering Heights :)ReplyDelete
