Sunday/Monday Posts - August 3rd and 4th

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It's a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

If you'd like to participate with The Sunday Salon, it is now a Facebook group.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. This is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between! This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!

I'm also linking to  Stacking The Shelves which is hosted by Team Tynga's Reviews

Happy Sunday and Monday! 

So, August has arrived with a lot of rain.  The good thing is that rain makes me want to stay inside and read more.  The bad thing is - I didn't read more and spent way too much time on my blog setting up blog tours/spotlights/giveaways for August.  I didn't realize that I have alot of them coming up!  Fortunately, not all the books need reviews :)

I had a busy week on my blog last week.  Next week I have a tour and/or spotlight scheduled for every day.  There are many giveaways still going on and you can still enter by clicking the button on my sidebar.  There are also many giveaways coming up.

I finally posted my monthly reads.  It seems that I forgot to do that for the last 3 months.  I made up for it :)  It was fun remembering what I read.  LOL

I'm still catching up on Scandal through Netflix and loving every minute of it.  Of course that's cutting into my reading time as well, but I'm having fun :)

So, what's been going on with you?  What have you been reading and/or watching?

What was your week like? What are you reading this week?


  1. I must see what you thought of Murder Strikes a Pose!

    I had a great reading week: What a Week!

  2. I went to my library sale day yesterday and picked up the first paperback in the yoga mystery series because I had seen this highlighted on your blog. So thanks for that!

    Glad you are enjoying Scandal--I am into season 3, show 5, and I just started watching it recently! I want to catch up before the new season starts, and did you hear the actor Columbus Short fled the country due to legal problems so he is out of the show!

    I will be stopping by this week to see all the busy stuff you have going on here. Enjoy!

  3. Love the covers on your cozies...I actually read and reviewed a cozy this past was on Sparky a long while, but it was cute, but with some annoying characters...LOL


  4. I love reading on rainy days.Glad you have things organized for August and I am loving all the cozy mystery covers!

  5. I have five blog tour reviews this month, including one due Tuesday that I just remembered. Ooops. :D

    I use my goodreads sheles to keep track of my challenges. without those, my wrap up post wouldn't exist. :D

    Now, I think you need more rain so you can curl up and read. :) Have a good week!

  6. I have tried some summer shows and been disappointed

  7. I want to get to the new Cahoon! I really enjoyed her first book. Can't wait to hear what you think of it! I haven't gotten to Scandal yet but it's on my Netflix list. The few I've seen have been really fun. Hopefully you'll be able to get some reading done soon! Have a great week!

  8. I feel the same way about shows cutting into my reading. I am watching the last season of the Killing right now on Netflix and I haven't picked up a book all night. Good news is though that I can blog hop and watch TV. :)

  9. your cozies are def cute!
    quite the busy blogging season for you - well done..

  10. Love the covers you posted. the books all sound cute. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  11. I welcome rain, do you want to switch? Take the sun away :D

    My Sunday

  12. I REALLY want to read Well Read, Then Dead. I'm just waiting for it to come in at the library.

    Happy reading!

  13. I read Free agent, but didn't really like it (too short ?). Your mysteries look a lot better ! Enjoy !
