Sunday Post: One book at a time

So many books, so little time! I’m concentrating right now on the eight books I have to read for the Historical Novel Society. Those are due June 15th. I often start several books at a time, but I’m thinking of changing that. What do you all think? Do you completely finish one book before starting another?

My husband Doug is down in Bryson City working on our house. Here is a video of my bathroom, which is almost finished. He did a lot with a tiny space.

There’s still some painting and trim that needs to be finished, and the ugly shower curtain is only temporary. lol


Wednesday I announced that I’m going to be a panelist for BBNYA. Submissions for authors and bloggers to participate ended yesterday.

Thursday I reviewed The Late Mrs. Willoughby for Austenprose PR Book Tours.

Friday I participated in Book Blogger Hop.


I’m trying to be quite organized today and pre-schedule all of next week’s posts so I’ll update this later. I’ll also be visiting/reading/commenting on other blogs today. I haven’t had as much time to do that lately and it’s important. I love visiting my blogger friends.


Picked up an audiobook this week.

1920s London isn’t the ideal place for a brilliant woman with lofty ambitions, but research assistant Saffron Everleigh is determined to beat the odds in a male-dominated field at the University College of London. She embarks on her first research study alongside the insufferably charming Dr. Michael Lee, traveling the countryside with him in response to reports of poisonings. But when Detective Inspector Green is given a case with a set of unusual clues, he asks for her assistance.

The victims, all women, received bouquets filled with poisonous flowers. Digging deeper, Saffron discovers that the bouquets may be more than just unpleasant flowers—there may be a hidden message within them, revealed through the use of the old Victorian practice of floriography. And it’s a dire message indeed, as each woman who received the flowers has turned up dead.
Alongside Dr. Lee and her best friend, Elizabeth, Saffron trails a group of suspects through a dark jazz club, a lavish country estate, and a glittering theatre, delving deeper into a part of society she thought she’d left behind forever.

Will Saffron be able to catch the killer before they send their next bouquet, or will she find herself with fatal flowers of her own?

Now I’m off to catch up on reading and posting. Have a great week!

  1. Your bathroom is looking great. I prefer reading one book at a time, but lately I’ve been jumping around. I hate doing that because I tend to mix up the stories.

    I hope you have a great week!

  2. I love the bathroom especially the picture of the crab! Nice job, Doug. I’ve never attempted reading multiple books at a time. Then again, I don’t have any deadlines.
    How on earth do you manage eight books at a time??

    1. Thanks. I especially love the washer and dryer in there. It frees up space elsewhere. The house is only 850 square feet right now but will be around 1050 when Doug finishes making the porch part of the house. My current house is 2600 square feet so maximum use of space is essential. I often am reading 2 or 3 at a time and skipping back and forth. I’m probably going to stop that. We’ll see.

  3. I love the pocket door and tile in the bathroom; you did a lot with the space. I’m re-doing my master bath right now also. Sophia is reviewing The Late Mrs. Willooughby this week too.

  4. I usually do finish one book before I start another. Your bathroom looks good. I like to preschedule a lot of my posts too. Thanks so much for visiting my blog.

  5. The times I’ve started a book while I’m still reading another one, variably result in my having to start the first book over again.

    Your new bathroom is looking good!


  6. That’s awesome that your husband is able to do the work in the bathroom himself. I’ve never been able to read multiple books at once. I feel like I can’t fully immerse myself when I do that so I stick to one at a time. 🙂


  7. I love the looks of your bathroom, especially that accent tile. I usually have two or three books on the go at the same time: one audiobook, one ebook, one physical book. They need to be different genres through or I will get them confused. I hope you week is going well so far, Bonnie. Enjoy your reading and whatever else you have coming up .
