Sunday Bookends: Spiritual Suspense Thrillers, All Agatha Raisened out, and ‘guy films’

Welcome to my weekly post where I recap my week by writing about what I’ve been reading, watching, writing, doing, and sometimes what I’ve been listening to.

This week was even less eventful than last week, and I’m fine with that. The weather was nice most of the week, but we are supposed to have cooler weather again next week, which we are not looking forward to.

I am planning a small spring break for the kids starting on Good Friday until the Tuesday after Easter. I could have made it longer, but it’s going to be cold next week and the fewer breaks we have, the quicker we can finish our school year. In Pennsylvania we have to teach 180 days, the same amount of days children in public schools attend.

What I’m Reading

I finished Dark of Night by Carrie Cotton this weekend and really enjoyed it. I posted a review of it last night. It is a fast-paced Christian fantasy/suspense novel with a powerful message. Check out the review for a description and my thoughts on it. It took me a while to finish it because I had reading assignments to finish with The Boy.

I am continuing to read To Kill A Mockingbird, which my son and I are reading for his English class. I am thoroughly enjoying it and breezing through it. I read it in eighth grade and have always listed it as my favorite book but, honestly, there is so much about it I forgot. Scout is awesome and reminds me so much of my daughter it’s scary.

Little Miss and I are reading White Stallion of Lipizza at night before bed.

What I’m Watching

I’m giving up on Agatha Raisin because, well, the storylines and characters have gone a bit stale for me. Plus, they kept removing characters and not explaining where they went, and I found that annoying. It didn’t help that I tried to read one of the books and was very disappointed.

For Saturday’s family movie night we watched something a little different for us, Fast and Furious Presents Hobbs and Shaw. It was . . . well, fairly good, but more of a “guy film” in some ways. I was going to write that at least I got to see Dwayne Johnson with his shirt off, but honestly he’s too muscular for me. Yes, there is such a thing as “too muscular.”

I haven’t really picked anything else to watch at this point. Maybe this week when we are stuck inside in the cold weather again.

What I’m Writing

I’ve been working on The Farmers’ Sons this week. I shared Chapter 2 on Friday.

I also shared some Random Thoughts on Thursday.

I also re-edited and re-released A Story To Tell on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited this past week.

It was nice of Erin at Still Life, With Cracker Crumbs to post a review for The Farmer’s Daughter on her blog this week. I also received a couple of nice reviews on Amazon.

So that’s my (short) week in review this week. How about you? What have you been reading, watching, listening to, or doing this week? Let me know in the comments.

  1. I have enjoyed reading To Kill a Mockingbird (at least a couple of times). The film version of the book is just as compelling, and Gregory Peck is one of my favorite actors.

  2. Oh my goodness no problem at all! I loved your book and would love more people to read it. I loaned it to my mom to read too. 🙂 I am staying away from your blog on day’s you post fiction so I can wait and read the next one all at once.

    Scout is such an amazing character. How cool that your Little Miss reminds you of her. Such a brave and strong character. One of Wyatt’s middle names is Atticus, because Atticus Finch is just a good man, a good character. That is such a fantastic book. I should really reread it. (If Wyatt had been a girl his name was going to be Josephine Harper..)

  3. Ugh. I had a whole response typed out and then backspaced and lost the whole thing. So shorter comment now: reading, Inspector Montalbano mysteries by Andrea Camilleri, which Warren might like, although not might be dark enough for him ;). This afternoon, chilling in The Chill Out Tent with a bunch of British deejays. Watching? Kim and I are watching The Simpsons, Modern Family, and Still Game, with the last one being one you might like if you can find it. It’s a Scottish comedy, a bit crude at times, but also with a heart of gold.
