Sunday/Monday Posts - June 29th and 30th

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! 

Summer is in full swing and I love it!  The only drawback is that I started things out with a flu/cold type of thing.  My throat felt like it was on fire and I'm still coughing like crazy.  So, that part hasn't been much fun.

I didn't have many blog tours scheduled last week and only a couple next week.  However, the rest of the summer looks pretty busy and I'm already booked through August.  So many great books coming up.  My summer reading looks good :)

Thanks to Netflix, I just "discovered" a new-to-me TV show. I started watching Scandal and love it.  I was wondering what all the fuss was about and I found out.  I already watched the first three episodes.

There are still a couple of giveaways going on - you can click the button on the sidebar to enter.  There are more coming up this week. 

I hope you are all enjoying your summer and reading great books!  Have a great week!

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


  1. NetFlix can so much fun and so addictive, lol.

    The cover for Muffin But Murder is making me hungry. :D Enjoy the heat and the books. :)

  2. Yes, summer is in full swing.
    I am sorry your not feeling well.

    I am reading `Life Without Limits` (Nick Vujicic) again.

    Looks like you have a full couple of weeks coming up.

  3. I loved Tailing a Tabby - a very good cozy. You can't go wrong with a bookmobile!

  4. Loved Tailing a Tabby and the bookmobile. Hope you enjoy it too.

  5. Nice looking group of books. I am curious about the one co-written by Steve Hockensmith. I like his Nick and Tesla middle grade science mysteries. Come see what I got this week at Ms. Martin Teaches Media and Inside of a Dog. Happy reading!

  6. So glad you found Scandal. I absolutely love that show and am waiting for the next season to start. Enjoy your new books!

    My recap:

  7. Tailing a Tabby looks good....and I love Netflix, too. Enjoying the 2nd season of Orange is the New Black...and still working on the first season of Breaking Bad.

    Have a great week...and here's MY WEEKLY SUNDAY/MONDAY UPDATES POST

  8. Have fun with Scandal! Hope you are feeling better. I had to ground myself from Netflix for awhile. Have a great week.

  9. Hehehe..Netflix can get you into trouble! I hope your throat feels better, summer colds are the worse

  10. I agree about summer reading, we were in the bookstore over the weekend and I saw a ton of books I wanted. Good grief why do I even go there? :)

    Tailing a Tabby and Muffin but Murder both looks like good cozies.

  11. Why is everyone so sick lately?? Stop it! :D Seriously though, hope you're feeling better.

  12. Scandal is on my to-watch list. I've seen some and it's a lot of fun! Plus I want Olivia's coat collection. I definitely want to try the Victoria Hamilton series and The White Magic book looks really fun too. Have a great week!

  13. Love the covers of all these books :)

  14. I posted yesterday but thought I'd share the link to my Monday report. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  15. Hope you feel better soon. I have White Magic Five and Dime on my wishlist and Tailing a Tabby looks cute. As a former NYer, my family is still Yankee fans (I was raised a Mets fan) and Rivera is hands-down my son's favorite player. I will recommend this book to him to pick up. Thanks for showcasing many interesting titles.

  16. Summer colds are the worst, hope oyou are feeling better soon.
    The Baffled Beatlemaniac Caper sounds interesting, my daughter is a Beatle fan.
