The Sunday Post #92

Posted April 9, 2023 by elzaread in The Sunday Post / 26 Comments

Greetings you guys! How’s your Easter Weekend so far? Ours are just fabulous. We’ve been doing nothing much but reading and sleeping and watching TV. Absolute bliss…

The first term of the year is done and dusted and school will restart on Tuesday again. Not that my Mommy had any holidays (except for the Easter Weekend). But that’s okay! My Mommy had a really good first term and although she really works her damn ass off, she loves it and all the kids love it as well. And I guess that’s what it’s all about. There will be time again for serious blogging. Yes, we do miss the almost daily chit chat here on the blog, but we’ve decided to do what we can, when we can.

At least we still read quite a bit! And all things do have a positive side to it. We don’t buy any new books and we take on very few review books at the moment. Just until we know we are going to have more time for blogging again.

If you’ve missed any of our recent ARC reviews, we’ve added links to the covers below:








On the Couch


We’ve just finished The Second Mrs. Astor by Shana Abe and we really enjoyed it very much. It was essentially a love story and we’ve rooted for Madeleine all the way. I think the author did some amazing research and I’m very glad that she sticked to the facts as far as possible.

I’m also not ashamed to say that I cried with Mommy about Kitty. I think the author managed to portray the love JJ Astor and Madeleine had for their damn mutt in a compassionate way. I still don’t like ours, but I guess I might cry if she has to go down with a sinking ship as well.

We are currently busy with an Afrikaans book that my Mommy also enjoys a lot. I’m not going to bore you with the details as it is very much concerning South African history during the early 1900’s up until WWII.


We’ve watched See how they run over the weekend and we loved it! If you love a real, typical Agatha Christie whodunnit – this is the movie for you! We’ve watched the adaptation of Why didn’t they ask Evans? a few weeks ago and that is definitely a mini series not to be missed.

And that’s all from us this week! What have you been up to lately?

Thank you to Debbie @ Readerbuzz and to Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer for diligently hosting our Sunday link-up posts! Remember to add your links and to pay your fellow bloggers a visit.

Have a lovely week you guys!

  1. Sounds like you’ve been busy with your work, but I am glad to see you’ve been reading a lot still too. It’s good to take a break on review copies now and then, I actually have been requesting more and more of them lately. I hope you’ll have a great week!

  2. Thanks for the recommendations for Titanic books on my comment! I’ve saved them plus your recommendation for Will. My husband loved See How They Run and strongly recommended it to me because I’m such an Agatha Christie fan. Now seeing you enjoyed it I absolutely need to watch it! I hope you’re getting in some reading time in and are having a great week!

  3. Oh you do sound busy these days. Full on with working at school. Glad you enjoyed an Easter break. I’m going to look for the miniseries you mention and see if they have it here. Hmm. I haven’t heard of it here but I will check. Thanks for the tip – -it sounds good. take care.

    • I love what I do Debbie and that makes all the difference! I am busy with time tables here in front of me while quickly responding to messages. And to quickly plan a Top Ten Tuesday for tomorrow!

      I really enjoyed The Second Mrs. Astor, I think you might too!

  4. So happy to see you here this week. So glad your first term went so well and you’re loving your work. It almost doesn’t seem like work when you enjoy it, right? I’ve also slowed down on ARCs for a while – they just become so all consuming and I feel like I’m left with no time to read the huge list of backlist books I want to read. So – I’m cutting myself off for awhile so I can read ‘other’ stuff. I’m also slowing down my blogging commitment – I’ll keep my hand in, but I just can’t keep up with 4 or 5 posts a week and have time to enjoy the other things I like to do. Take care of yourself – Hope you have a terrific week.

    • Hi Terrie!

      There was a time where I also managed 4 plus posts a week. But that’s not going to happen any time soon again. I will do whatever I can and if I have time for ARC’s, I’ll read them. But for now – I’m just blogging for fun and focusing on work as much as needed.

      Have a great week ahead and enjoy your books!
