Sunday Salon

The Sunday Salon.com

Happy Sunday, everyone! Today, I’m continuing with the house grind, trying to get everything in order before our guests arrive for Christmas. This is likely the last time I’ll check in with a Sunday Salon post before the end of the year (can you believe 2013 is right around the corner??) I’m finding it more and more difficult to find time to work on my blog on the weekends (you might have noticed the dearth of Monday reviews), as I’m consumed with doing stuff for the house, but the good news is that it’s in great shape for guests!

I unfortunately didn’t get much reading done last week, and that’s a trend that’s probably going to continue through the rest of the year. The good news is I have quite a few books I haven’t reviewed yet, so hopefully I can still keep regular reviews going. While I’m not meeting my four-per-week goal, I’m at least getting two to three per week out there, which isn’t so bad.

I usually don’t mention current events on my blog, but I wanted to say something about the shooting in Newtown, CT last week. For those of you who aren’t in the US, you may not have heard about the gunman that entered an elementary school in Connecticut and murdered 20 children and seven adults. There isn’t much to say, beyond a desire for some sort of understanding and peace, which we know will never come. But I wanted to mention it anyways in the vain hope that continuing to talk about it means that something like this will never happen again.

Reviews posted this week:


The Prophet – Michael Koryta


Murder Most Austen – Tracy Kiely

  1. Murder Most Austen looks appealing, mixing Regency romance and mystery.

  3. Totally understand how house duties and guests can dominate the day-to-day grind! Throw in a couple of kids and you can probably understand why I’m having to shut down for awhile. And the tragedy in CT is almost beyond comprehension. I have such a sick feeling in my stomach…those poor little babies and their families.

  5. The tragedy of all those beautiful children is in the news right around the world, and is still being discussed in NZ. We have reasonably tough gun owning laws, and very little gun crime. We feel for all of their families, so very sad.

    Wishing you a lovely holiday with your family in your new home, and looking forward to your reviews in 2013.

  7. Since we are doing Christmas st my house this year, I have had a lot less time for reading and have spent more time cleaning and shopping and all the rest of that stuff. I am hoping to write a review today, and then curl up with my book for the afternoon. I hope that you have a wonderful holiday season!!

  9. I think everyone is in shock over CT still. It seems different this time with so many young innocents.

    I think this time of year goes one of two ways, either there is more time to sit and read or no time at all.
