Happy Sunday! Sunday Salon is hosted by Deb at ReaderBuzz. Check out her post and the links to see what other bloggers have been up to in the last week.
How’s the weather?
Our autumn equinox, yesterday, felt like summer, but we’re going to get some rain and slightly cooler temperatures today. It looks like we’ll have to wait until October, though, for days that feel like fall. On a drive to the country this week, I saw the barest hint of fall color on some of the forested hillsides.
What are you reading?
I’m reading The London Séance Society by Sarah Penner since I enjoyed her first book, The Lost Apothecary, so much. This one started out well, too. I like that the main character is a desperate skeptic, just the sort of person that I want alongside when I’m exploring the world of nineteenth-century séances.
What are you watching?
My favorite movie this week was Red, White, and Royal Blue. It hit the spot for charm and idealism for me. I’ll post a review for British Isles Friday this week.
What are you doing?
We had our first in-person book club meeting last week. It was our annual book selection meeting which was more enjoyable for us than the Zoom version that we did for the last three years. Being in the room with the physical people and their physical books made it all feel more immediate and enticing.
I’m excited about the books we chose. I made lists in a blog post yesterday of the books we selected and the ones that didn’t make the cut (but it was so hard to choose!).
What are you writing?
For British Isles Friday, I wrote my first ever review of a video game — the first of a series of games based on Agatha Christie’s detective, Hercule Poirot. I’m not very good at video games, but I improved enough to enjoy this one.
As promised last week, on Monday I started a commitment to write scenes for an hour a day each day for 90 days. I’m not generating quite as many words as I hoped in that hour, but I am making progress each day. Maybe I’ll get faster as I go along.
How are you this fine Sunday?
