The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly  @ Caffeinated Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received.

Stacking The Shelves is also a weekly meme hosted by  Tynga’s Reviews and Marlene from Reading Reality.  It’s all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!


Don’t forget to look at my giveaways on the right sidebar.

Last weekend was quiet and I ended up not going anywhere and not working on any big projects. My daughter had a migraine from Thursday, missing classes both Friday and Monday. On Monday we went to the chiropractor to see if that would help. It did help.  Luckily, she was keeping up with her classwork and we had nothing scheduled on Tuesday.

When her migraine continued on Tuesday, I spent another day doing various and sundry tasks and made an appointment with her neurologist for Wednesday. I spent a lot of time reading, working on posts and reviews. I looked through stuff on Netgalley for the first time in ages and found a couple things for 2020.

Wednesday was also the day she could register for Spring 2020. The section of one class only had 2 spots and her registration time would be right when we were at the neurologist.  We got home and I rushed to the computer to get her registered.  Only 1 spot and she got it!  Whew!  She got heavy duty injection meds to stop the headache.  It’s frustrating because she has been doing so great this fall, with less headaches.  We stayed home Wednesday night from quilting and Thursday to rest up and catch up.

Thursday was glorious.  The weather was perfect.  We had nothing on the schedule. My daughter didn’t have a headache.  I worked on a bunch of little things and I did finally get out in the yard for another round with the leafblower. Luckily with my previous experience, it was faster and easier this time. Friday, it was back to classes finally.

The weather took a nosedive Friday night to the 20s (-6C) and the weekend will stay cold. I brought some plants inside and covered the garden.  We are staying home.  I hope to finally handle the big projects I have been procrastinating all week. The first part of all the upstairs boxes is to finish the flannel sort and that is just a HUGE project.  I’m going to have to sort the last tote but not cut everything / figure out the kits.  I can cut and organize the kits over time.  I did cut and organize more on Friday night though.

Saturday was a day for projects. I did do some blogging, then went on to the flannel sort and the sort of my daughter’s bathroom boxes so we could put away those items in the bathroom and linen closet.

I finished my first book for Series of the Month reading and set up my COYER signup post for later today.


Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality.  These are the exciting ARCs I received this week (If you click on the cover, it will take you to the Goodreads entry):





Thank you so much InkslingerPR, Montlake Romance, Tachyon Publications, Gallery Books,  Harper Audio, and Audible!


(If you click on the cover, it will take you to the Goodreads entry)


I found I already had the Kindle version of Vine Witch and could add narration for $1.99.  Chase Darkness with Me was an Audible Daily deal.


I saw there was a new Loreth Anne White book when I browsed Netgalley. Then I saw I could get it free as a prime member, adding the narration for $1.99 for the win!   Then I couldn’t pass up Filthy which was $3.99 at Author Direct with love letters from all our favorite male narrators.


Now the really scary one. This is all the Kindle and Audible freebies I grabbed this past week. You can see why I need to do Thrifty Thursday to be sure I read a few at least one each month.



I really meant to cut back on freebies BUT  they are free so I guess that won’t be happening.


I’m not including things like reviews posted or upcoming as they are always in the right sidebar. And, my challenge status is also there.

If you like this and want to see me do the Sunday post, as often as I can manage, leave me a comment and let me know.

  1. Sorry to hear about your daughter’s migraines. I had a huge stomach issue that caused me to lay down right before going to the Opera center. Thank God I got to see Figaro in all his glory.

    • Thank you. It is finally going well. I started on the final frontier last night- all my daughter’s boxes. But we are doing the bathroom stuff first. And organizing the rest since she didn’t pack like things in each box. Sigh. I don’t mind it and at least she doesn’t seem territorial about me going through her stuff.

  2. I profoundly feel for your daughter – as a young woman I used to be dogged with migraines that lasted for days. Thankfully, it doesn’t happen so much, these days. You managed to get a lot done and it sounds as if you are slowly prevailing regarding the unpacking and sorting – congratulations! I hope the coming week is another productive one and that your daughter is fully recovered.

  3. I am really sorry to her about your daughter’s migraine Anne! Mine has suffered from migraines from the age of six to eighteen! Weirdly this year, she is in her dorm at university and the migraines have disappeared! I think holding her life into her hands and making her own choices has alleviated a big stress. I hope your daughter will get better in the coming weeks!

    • We are lucky! She has an amazing neurologist but there is only so much they can do. Every couple years it just won’t stop and she has to have the injections to reset. She’s anxious and has catch up work for school, but they are off Monday and we have no plans this weekend so she can slowly come up to speed.

  4. Sorry to hear your daughter continued to suffer from migraine this week, Anne. I’m glad she’s finally feeling better. I’m also really happy she was able to sign up for the classes she wanted! That’s awesome.
    Sometimes, a more lazy and sedate week is just what we all need. And those projects aren’t going anywhere, now, are they?
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading. *hugs*

    • Thanks Linda! Well if she or I don’t get through some of those boxes either it will be obvious to me she doesn’t need the stuff and I should pitch it or I’m going to put all those boxes in the attic and she can work through them one at a time. lol. I’m hoping to get through a lot this week now that I have gotten through the initial sort of all the flannel. Everyone needs a slower week to think about things, or even a slower day. xoxox

  5. I love weeks where I can work on both large and small projects like that. Wow, your poor daughter. I had a two day migraine, but I couldn’t imagine one that kept it up for days. Yay for snagging the last class spot. 🙂

    Nice haul. I got the new Melinda Leigh, too. It will be fun to try a new series.

    Have a great week, Anne!

    • Thanks Sophia! I do what I can to help her since it is horrible. That class is #3 in a series of 4 classes and with a teacher she knows. The only other section was online only and also already full. So I was thrilled.

      I am thinking about a Kendra Elliott book also but don’t want to over commit myself.

      I wish you a wonderful week with some great books!

  6. I hope your daughter is feeling better, migraines are no fun! And mine aren’t anywhere near as severe as it sounds hers are.
    I do well for a while if freebies, but then I’ll just get in a mood and grab a whole bunch at one time. Considering the number of unread books on my Kindle, I should stop altogether!

    • They aren’t always bad but when they are it’s awful.

      Well I like to have options so I am not stopping with the freebies. Plus I calculated, based on my reading rate I only have 10-15 years of stuff and I’m going to live longer than that! Of course, I do get ARCs and library books too. lol

  7. Sounds like another very busy week for you.
    I’m glad your daughters migraine got a little better. I don’t have migraines, but I do have headaches at least one day a week. They really suck!
    Have a great week and happy reading!

  8. Funny how the weather dips up and down right now. We’re in the 80s-90s still and I’d be happier with cooler days. With the shorter days it’s not hot for long but still. Sorry to hear about your daughter’s headaches, they can be debilitating.

    I can’t wait for Anne Loreth White’s newest. She does great mystery/thrillers. 🙂

  9. I am so sorry that your daughter has been having so many migraines. They are horrible and can really interfere with your life. I hope the new meds help. Lots of great looking books this week. I have been tempted by The Vine Witch and will probably get it at some point. I hope you have a great week and enjoy your new books!

  10. Migraines are the worst – I’m sorry your daughter had to suffer with them for so long 🙁 I hope all you did to help her get over them last week keeps working this week! Oooh and congrats on getting into that class. I remember those days and the relief when you get that last spot.

    Yay on finishing one of your #Readaseries books! Hope this week is better for y’all!

    • Thank you! It’s early in the week but so far, so good. She didn’t have classes with Veteran’s Day, so we even got in a nap in the late afternoon after 2 medical appointments. The headache was over last Wednesday so hopefully she doesn’t get any soon.

  11. Migraines are the worst. I’m sorry to hear that your daughter is experiencing them and hope those meds continue to give her some relief. Our weather has been up and down too. I love the slightly cooler temps but we had a couple of really cold nights I could have done without, lol.

  12. Migraines are horrid! I had a spell back at the start of summer where they were coming at a rate of 1/2 a week and when the effects are felt over a couple of days they were so disruptive! I hope this recurrence of your daughters passes quickly.

    Hope you enjoy The Immortal Conquistador! I’ve had that one on the to read pile for a while but am waiting until we’re a bit closer to release.

    (Sorry for the late comment! I’m playing catch up again!)
