Sunday Salon - Reviews, Ratings and A New Challenge

Happy Sunday!

We are having such beautiful weather in New York. The temperatures have been in the 70's and the sun has been shining. It's absolutely perfect. They say it won't be lasting, but I'll take what we can get after the horrible winter we had.

I only completed one book this week...Double Play by Jill Shalvis and I enjoyed it. I'm totally loving James Patterson's Worst Case. I'm listening to this on audio and it's everything I love about a Patterson book.

I've decided to use a ratings system when I write reviews. For a long time I was resistant to do that, but I decided to go ahead and start. I'll be posting my ratings scale soon and, yes, I'll be using cat heads!!! LOL Do you use review ratings? Are your pictures (whether they are stars, hearts, etc.)just pictures you add to your blog or is there another way to post the rating images?

Right now I'm reading a mystery called Executive Lunch by Maria Schneider. It's for a review and Maria has graciously agreed to do an interview for my blog. That will be coming up with my review of her book. She has two others I'll be reviewing as well. I'm excited about that.

My husband and I are planning on a vacation...a week in the Dominican Republic. I'm not sure exactly when or where, but it will be coming up soon. We both need to get away...after my heart surgery and then the tree landing on our roof...we need a break away from everything :) Although it will be a "chore", I'll be researching different vacation places :)

Hope you all have a great week!

  1. Lol at the cat

    I'd like to use a ratings system but I can't figure out how to make it, I so need 0,5 points but yes still thinking

  2. The weather has been beautiful in Vermont the past week. I think snow is in the forecast for this coming week. :-(

  3. Patterson is so pupular these days, I have to try reading one of his books. I've found some new crime fiction: Here's my Sunday Salon

  4. Hope you have a great vacation. Sounds like you both need it. Have you been to Aruba? It is our favorite place: gorgeous beaches, fine dining, gambling, perfect weather all the time, and very very safe place to venture out alone.

  5. I waver about rating books; I want to rate them, yet I rarely do so. I seem to find something wonderful about every book I read! Lacking discernment, perhaps?

    Hope you have a lovely trip!

  6. Glad to hear you are going to take a vacation after your heart surgery. I hope you have a fab time when you get there.
