My Sunday-Monday Post!

My Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer
Sunday Salon is hosted by Deb at Readerbuzz
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date

I can’t believe it has been a month since I have participated in any of these linkups! We have been having a lot of fun reading and creating and starting back to school, and hanging out in the woods for the most part; today we are doing more of the same and then we are going to my brother’s for soup night. It is the first one and it is his turn to host. I am excited about it, because soup and family – it really can’t get too much better than that in my world.

Read the last few weeks:

It’s been a good few weeks of reading! I have loved all of these books, each in their own way. We are still reading The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe together at night; we had taken a break for Christmas reads. I plan on reviewing The Lost Spells and Mistletoe and Mr. Right this week. I loved The Lost Words by McFarlane and this one is amazing too. The imagery the poems evoke, the beautiful stunning artwork, make this book such a treat to read through.

Reading this Week:

I was so excited to get this book! I loved both The Wicked Deep and Winterwood so I am anticipating that I will like this one as well.

and…. done! I had no idea there were so many when I started typing that out. Lol.

Watching:

We finished up Brokenwood Mysteries and I am bummed! I hate when we finish a mystery series because I miss the characters and also because I have to find a new one to watch! We are also watching The Witcher. The first episode of the second season was fire; however the rest of the season, while good, is not living up to that first episode. Although I am very much enjoying the Henry Caville scenes. I almost forgot! We are watching Cobra Kai too! We have also watched Encanto, which was fantastic, and last night we watched Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch, which I loved. I could watch those movies with the sound off and still be happy, they are just so visually stunning and interesting. I enjoy the actual movies as well, but I love the look.

And that is it from our little burrow! How are you all doing? What is happening in your world?

  1. We have gone back into hibernation with all the new cases of Covid everywhere. I have stopped going to the Y and we’re going back to Zoom for book club. Sigh.

    I love the look of a bunch of your books. The Lost Spells. Crazy Like a Fox. And, of course, Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe. I’m reading Prince Caspian now.

    I will look for Brokenwood Mysteries.

    1. Ugh us too! Just our tiny bubble who is also in hibernation. 😦 I ordered Wyatt a special new mask that filters 98.5% of particles for therapy and for when we take him to his specialist appointments, that I wish could wait but they can’t. 😦

      They were all so good! And It will take us a year probably to get to Prince Caspian lol!

      Brokenwood is good!

  2. Whew! You’ve been a reading and watching machine.

    I am such a slooooow reader! You always read such interesting books. I need to check some of them out soon.

    I am starting Brookenwood Mysteries right now to see if this is something my husband and I will like. We are always looking for new mysteries to watch.

    oooh..take some photos at your soup night! That will be a cute post!

    1. Lol! It’s been slow around here without school and the super cold weather. I read some stuff slowly, others I fly through. It all depends on the book.

      I need a new mystery. Brokenwood had a slow start for us, but then really hit its stride. It takes place in New Zealand so the accents took a minute for us.

      And thank you for the idea! I will!

  5. You have been reading lots of good books. It always feels good to get back into your routine. I haven’t read any Lucy Foley yet, but my daughter-in-law enjoys her books. Your TV and movie watching gave me some new things to look for.

    Have a good week!

  6. I love the idea of soup night. I always wanted to do a Sunday soup night and invite all my friends when I was in college or grad school but it never seemed to happen. I don’t have quite enough soup recipes. I’m making clam chowder this week for sure. Then I need to hunt down more recipes to try.

  7. Thanks for all the movie/series recs. We typically enjoy police procedural & murder mystery series (esp. British shows), so we’ll give Brokenwood Mysteries a try. The French Dispatch sounds great, too.

    I’m in the mood for a big bowl of soup right now. It’s cold and rainy and I’ve been on jury duty all day and have no idea what to fix for dinner. Tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich sounds good.

    1. Those are exactly our favorite types of shows! Lol. We just started one called Mr. and Mrs. Murder and we are enjoying it. The two main characters make us laugh. 🙂

      Oh no! I hope you got your soup! I think that sounds like the perfect meal for a long, rainy day.

  9. I fell off the wagon of reading blogs. I’m starting to use my planner again to get me going and more organized. Been crafting away here, either sewing or knitting or making cards. I hope to start a new blog when the lunar new year starts and man I’m behind.
