The Weekend Review - September 7th-9th

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 being hosted by Deb at Readerbuzz.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading is a meme with a new host!  It's now being hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. 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 Weekend!

I've been gone for the last week or so.  We've been away and purchasing a new home.  Now the fun is on to pack and get ready to actually move in.  It's been crazy.

Because of my move, I've been limiting my blog and tour activities.  I did manage to finish reading three books and I enjoyed them all.  I plan to be busier on my blog although I won't be back in full until I'm moved in.  It will be in the next month or so.  I'll be around on and off and I have pre-scheduled many posts.

I still managed to stack up on some Kindle freebies.  There were a few that looked so good.  I couldn't resist them.

What have you all been up to?  Read or see anything good?  Have a great week!

I'm currently reading...

I finished reading ...

I'm planning to read this one next...

Here are this week's Kindle freebie haul. They were freebies when I got them, I don't know if they still are. Always make sure to check they are still free before buying. The prices change quickly.  

These books are coming up for a blog tour soon:


  1. Wow. You have had a busy, busy week. We last moved almost thirty-five years ago, and I can't imagine the whole process of buying another house, packing up this one, and moving things to the new home. I hope I never have to do that. No wonder you feel like your reading has been slow!

    The Oysterville Sewing Circle looks like great fun. I will look for that one. I feel like I have been reading books that are too serious lately.

    Have a fabulous week.

  2. Good luck with the house shopping and especially the move! It can be so draining!

  3. Best of luck with the move and I hope the packing, etc all goes smoothly and that you have a great week,whether or not you manage to find time to read!

  4. All of your books look tempting...especially the Susan Wiggs book.

    My moving was different, since I did very little of the actual moving or heavy lifting...but lots of lists...and some frustration when things I wanted didn't make it over.

    I am still getting bits and pieces of things that my daughter stashed in her garage. LOL.

    I hope your move is smooth. Enjoy your week.

  5. Congrats on the new house and good luck with the move!

  6. Congrats on the new home! Hope your house turns out alright!

    Here’s my Sunday Post!
