Sunday Post #76 Happy New Year!



The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a happy and relaxing holiday.  It's good to be home, and thinking about books again. I did a bit of reading over the break and with Vintage Science Fiction Month underway I've been reading in preparation for that. 

 It's flurrying a little as I write this on New Year's. 

As mentioned above Vintage Science Fiction Month is underway- you can check out the details here. I've been reading several older science fiction novels and planning my reviews for the month- I hope to have at least one a week going forward, in addition to my regular reads. 

Vintage SF Month

LAST WEEK: 

Favorite Books of the Year

THIS WEEK: 

AROUN THE BLOGOSPHERE:

Tales Between The Pages has an end of the year book roundup. I got a few ideas for new reads from her list. And she mentioned my blog too (shameless plug). :)    

Book Journey reviews Good Night June by Sarah Jio.  

The Hardcover Lover reviews Vivian Apple At The End Of The World.

 The Bronze Age Babies are on vacation- all month it's up to the readers to carry the conversation. They've done this the last few January's and it's always fun to see what the commenters come up with. 

Lynn's Book Blog reviews A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs for Vintage Science fiction Month.

  4. Welcome back! Hope you had a lovely Christmas and happy New Year! We have had a snow free Christmas break (which isn't a surprise) but made up for it in rain. I think I've only seen the sun once this week. Enjoy your vintage scifi reading! My youngest discovered the DVD of the Forbidden Planet and is driving us crazy wanting to watch it. Not sure what he'll think but it'll be fun to watch it again. Have a great week!

  6. Happy New Year, Greg! No snow for us on Christmas either. I'm flying home today from Chicago and it sounds like snow there tonight so I hope my flight isn't delayed. Supposed to be in the low 60's in Maryland today, but then down in the 30's for a high tomorrow. Crazy weather! Anyway I'll look forward to your sci fi reads this month.

  7. I was so into science fiction as a kid in the 60s and 70s. Now so much of that fiction is fact! We were in FL for the holiday so no snow, but I don;t think there was any here either. my Sunday Post post: http://fangswandsandfairydust.com/2015/01/sunpo-1-4-15.html

    1. I was too, actually. I don't read much of it anymore, although this got me thinking about it a lot. We'll see if I find any good ones. :)

    I hope you have a great week, greg!!!

  9. No snow here either, but that's no surprise in NC. *sigh* After the very hectic Christmas week, New Years week was quite sedate and I was happy for it. :D We did see The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies and everyone liked it. :)

  11. I had a quiet holiday at home and just got finished putting away decorations and putting the house back in order. Seems so bland right now. LOL And now I'm anxious for spring. While we don't get snow we do get cold here and there and I miss my pool!

    Here's my Sunday Post - http://fuonlyknew.com/2015/01/04/whats-new-on-my-bookshelf-91-and-the-sunday-post/

  12. We had flurries today but no real snow. It sure is cold though! I'm not looking to going out tomorrow morning. Happy New Year!

  13. A LOT of snow here and happy to stay in to be out of the freezing temps.
    Yay for readathons and new books waiting...
    HapPy New Year, Greg. Enjoy that vintage sci fi - thinking Madeleine L'Engl's Wrinkle in TIme would work well for that one?

  14. We had snow yesterday and now freezing rain, causing some parts of Montreal to lose electricity. Not a good thing. It's very cold tonight. Welcome back from your travels and back to books and blogging, Taking time off has made me realize how much I miss book blogging when I'm so busy with work!

  15. Since I'm from a tropical country, I really want snow for Christmas. :D Happy New Year! ♥

  16. No snow this year, which i'm totally alright with. But I'm worried because it's not as cold as it normally is...which basically means tornado season will be in full swing when Spring finally gets here. :( I'm not sure if you see my replies on my blog, so i'll post this here too. Let me know if you have any questions about UltraSabers! I hope you have a great week Greg and Happy New Year!

  19. No snow for Christmas, that would be a novel idea! We had cold, snow, bad roads, you name it! YUK! We did spend one Christmas in AZ, in 2011. I thought it was amazing! My DH however, did not! Have a great week.

    1. I've often thought Christmas in a warm area would be nice- although I would miss the snow! Thank you for visiting!

  20. I would be tired of so much traveling! We got some snow here the day after christmas, but it only stayed for a day. It is cold but not too cold. I hope you're enjoying your books for Vintage Science Fiction Month!
