Happy Sunday everyone! I’m getting my Sunday Salon post up much earlier this week- it’s technically Sunday, but I haven’t been to bed Saturday night, so Sunday doesn’t come for several hours yet.

I’ve been much better about reading this week, and I actually managed to complete two books. I’ve also been getting caught up on some of my backlogged reviews. And I should be posting with a bit more regularity as I start to fall into a routine (at least until the job search starts to see some results; my habits may be upended again when I find a new job). I also took the time to make sure my challenge posts and review pages were up to date. If you’re ever curious about my challenge progress, click on the image for each challenge on the right, and it will take you to the post I wrote for that challenge.

As far as actual reading goes, I’ve been making a bit of progress through The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson. I know many people read it last year, but I didn’t have the time at that point. I’ve been making time this week, and I wish I’d made time to read it last year when I first bought it. It’s an engrossing book.

I’ve also been continuing my re-read of the Pink Carnation series with The Deception of the Emerald Ring. It’s proving to be a very fast re-read, and I suspect I will finish it before I go to bed tonight. That means I’ll probably move on to The Seduction of the Crimson Rose sometime during the day. I may hold off on it for a day or two, though, while I finish The Gargoyle. I’m very much a mood reader, so it depends on my mood.

I did post four new reviews this past week. They are:

  • What I Saw and How I Lied by Judy Blundell (review)
  • Canvey Island by James Runcie (review)
  • Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn (review)
  • The Masque of the Black Tulip by Lauren Willig (review)

What you can expect for the coming week:

  • Review of The Deception of the Emerald Ring by Lauren Willig
  • Review of The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson
  • Possible review of The Seduction of the Crimson Rose by Lauren Willig
  • Possible review of The Temptation of the Night Jasmine by Lauren Willig
  • New Highlighting History post (I’m way overdue for one of these!)

Hope you all have a great Sunday!
