Sunday/Monday Posts - April 13th and 14th

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!

Spring has finally sprung and the weather is absolutely lovely!  It sure brightens up everyone's spirits after the cold and snowy winter.  I hope you are all having similar type of weather wherever you are.

I've been busy doing more reading and I've been so lucky - all my book choices have been wonderful.  Yes, most are cozies and one is better than the next.  Yes, they are all for blog tours and/or reviews, but I've been having so much fun with all of them.  Great reads lately...maybe I shouldn't have said it out loud...I might jinx it.  LOL

I still have some book giveaways going on - just click the button on the sidebar to see what's still open.  Maybe you can win one of these great cozies :)

I saw a few good movies on DVD this week - 12 Years A Slave, Blue Jasmine and Dallas Buyers Club.  All were really great and they all deserved whatever awards they won this year. 

So, what have you all been up to?  Read anything good lately?  See any good movies?

I hope you all had a great week and have a good one this week!

  6. This weather is so energizing and uplifting. So happy spring is finally here! Waiting for my copy of The Whole Cat and Caboodle to arrive from Amazon. After I saw it on your blog last week, I couldn't resist it...I'm a real sucker for cat cozies.

    My Sunday recap:
