The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
Random News And Goings-On
Last week was kind of weird. I feel like a lot of it was spent in a bit of a fog. Despite taking allergy meds my allergies seem to have kicked and my vertigo is back although not as bad as usual. Hopefully this will wind down soon.
I managed to get my planning done in one fell swoop during one of the few good weather days we had this week. Now my porch is full of plants! Some of these containers have been around for quite a while and have gotten weathered over time. I guess that gives them character though! I should probably try to paint my porch at some point though–it’s looking a bit shabby.
Reading has not gone quite as I’d hoped last week but at least I’m still reading! More on that tomorrow. In the meantime been watching Anne With an E, Making the Cut (what a great finale) and a kdrama called Crash Landing on You. I’ve also been working on my hat a bit, continuing to organize things for r/fantasy virtual convention, and recorded a new episode of r/fantasy modcast.
To sum up, my days can be described as periods of frenetic activity followed by loafing around in a daze unable to find the energy to do things.
New Book Arrivals at Way Too Fantasy
A new volume of Card Captor Sakura: Clear Card arrived! So of course I couldn’t resist a picture with some of my CCS figures (some because many of them are on my desk back at the office–poor lonely dears). I haven’t actually gotten around to reading any of the Clear Card manga yet but now that I have a pile of them I plan on diving in. Maybe even today! Guess we’ll see how I’m doing with my other reading first though. 🙂
A couple of new ebooks. I picked up Dark Star by Oliver Langmead after it came up in the Small Press Panel on r/fantasy. It looks totally unique and I’m all about that when it comes to fiction.
Orbit has SO MANY wonderful titles coming out in the next couple of months–here are a few I have my eye on and had to restrain myself from requesting but I couldn’t help getting an eARC of The Obsidian Tower by Melissa Caruso. I LOVED her Swords & Fire trilogy and I’m super excited for this new book.
No new audiobooks this week although I did pre-order one book (goodness–now I can’t remember which one it was I ordered) and I also got two new credits in so I should have some news here next time. 🙂
That’s the news for this week, see you next time!

Your plants and flowers are so beautiful! 😍
Looks like you’ve been super busy. Your plants look gorgeous.
Thanks Lynn! Been trying to stay busy, it’s like my brain doesn’t approve of me being idle right now.
I absolutely loved Dark Star! I never hear anyone talking about it so it’s nice to know it’s getting some attention. And I love your plants! This hot weather we’re having makes me want to do the same😁 Have a good week, Lisa!
Oh, that’s good to know. I hadn’t heard about this book until we had the publisher on for our small press panel and he mentioned it and I was like ‘SOLD’ so fast LOL. Thanks! Hopefully they’ll all do well this year but we’ll see once we have some sunny days how they do on the porch in the evening sun – some plants hate it and I haven’t had experience with all these before. April is living up to its expectation and we’ve had a lot of rainy days as of late. 🙂 Thanks, Tammy! Hope you have a great week too.
Indoor and outdoor plants can make such a change, they are so calming, and I love being surrounded by them, even though I don’t have the greenest thumb.
Yes, exactly, this is why I had to have my plants this year despite everything–I’m so glad our local garden center was open. I find gardening is a lot of trial an error. Even if you read the labels on plants and where they should thrive that doesn’t always turn out to be the case. I think I have a couple of plants die at least every year (maybe that’s why I get so many….). But that’s how I learn what does well and what doesn’t work. 🙂
I love the idea of getting more than needed since some will eventually bite the dust 😀
It helps to over plan lol.
YOU HAVE A PORCH! This may seem utterly silly to you… but as someone who doesn’t have anything of the kind, well it just looks so cute! I’ve always wanted one. The houses in Aussie don’t really have them sadly. I love the potted plants as well. It’s such a homely vibe! I hope your next week of reading goes well Lisa 🙂
Yeah, I wish it were a bit more of a porch but it’s my little outdoor space. 🙂 Huh, that’s interesting, I wonder why? Some of the houses on my street don’t have them either, just a few blocks at the start, but I’m glad we have this because in the back we have nothing, it’s just lawn and a cement parking pad. Thanks much, hope you have a good week too!
Your plants are adorable!! I love them! The Obsidian Tower looks really cool 🙂
Thanks! I really love Melissa Caruso’s writing so I’m super excited for this one. 🙂
