Sunday/Monday Posts - February 8th & 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 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!

Happy Sunday and Monday Everyone!

I've been super busy on the blog this week.  Much more than I ever intended to be.  Thanks to Berkley/ Obsidian, I have been hosting giveaways and guest posts for their new February cozy releases all week.  There are more coming up next week.  If you missed entering any of the giveaways, I created a brand new tab at the top for all of them.  Just click it and see what's still going on.

I will be doing more cozy giveaways for  March for Berkley's new releases.

I have also managed to enjoy reading some of them too.  I finished three books this week.  Not sure if I'll be able to keep up this pace with reading and blogging, but I'm trying.

We're still having cold weather.  It's in the 20's here and we had a couple of snow storms during the week.  We might have more snow tomorrow night, but the forecast seems to be getting better. So, it might just be a dusting.

I'm going to try and get out there and visit some blogs today.  I hope you all have a great week and read many great books!

  11. Murder at Cold Creek Cottage caught my eye. You're featuring so many great-sounding cozies on your blog and it's fun reading your blog and learning about them.

  12. Lot of great looking books! Are you enjoying Dr. Sleep? I am curious about that one, I have it to listen too but haven done it yet. I also love Debbie Macomber!! So enjoy your reads!! :)


    1. I think I would prefer to actually read Dr. Sleep instead of having it on audio. I've started it three times and seem to have a problem concentrating on it. I'm going to try again, though.
