Sunday Salon: January 17, 2021

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz runs The Sunday Salon. 




All these reviews will be posted in mid-February after the winners of the CYBILS have been announced.
  • Elatsoe by Darcie Little Badger
  • Sia Martinez and the Moonlit  Beginning of Everything by Raquel Vasquez Gillilamp
  • Even if We Break by Marieke Nijkamp

It has been in the upper 70s to low 80s this week. In January! I gotta' say it feels good to sit outside for a bit and soak up the sun.

We finished Strong Woman Do Bong Soon and enjoyed it, but haven't figured out our next K-drama to watch. Instead, I watched a wonderful documentary called A Most Beautiful Thing, which follows men from an all-Black rowing team out of west Chicago high school.

On the treadmill I've been watching Queer Eye. It isn't my favorite show, but it keeps me amused while I work out and that's what matters. Yesterday I began Charlie Wilson's War, but am not sure I am going to stick with it.

COVID numbers are up like crazy in our county and I still see people wandering around without masks. What is that about?! My parents both got their first vaccine dose of the Moderna vaccine Friday, which was quite emotional for them. I think for the first time they can picture being okay through this and being able to go and see our family.

By the time I do my next Sunday Salon, we'll have a new president here in the US. It cannot happen soon enough for me!


I have read all 7 of the YA fiction finalists for the CYBILS, but still have 4 more to read in the YA Speculative fiction category. But, I have a few weeks so I think I am good to go. It feels strange not to post the reviews as I go along.

I stole the idea of my new Challenges Update graphic from Deb at Readerbuzz, but put my own twist on it. Thanks Deb! The graphic is a link to my challenges page.
