Sunday/Monday Posts - June 8th and 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!

I'm also linking to  Stacking The Shelves which is hosted by Team Tynga's Reviews

Happy Sunday and Monday Everyone! 

I'm so loving the beautiful, summer weather we've been having.  I think I need to move to a place that has this climate year 'round :)

Another busy week on the blog.  It seems like I have had something going on everyday.  Quite a number of tours and giveaways.  There are still some giveaways going on - just click the button on my sidebar to see them.  There will be more coming up including Luanne Rice's newest book and Save the Date by Mary Kay Andrews.  I haven't read Luanne Rice's yet, but I always love her books and I had a chance to do an interview too.  So, if you want a chance to win her latest, The Lemon Orchard, check back here on Monday.  Save the Date was a funny chick lit book and I'll be posting my review along with a giveaway on Tuesday.

My review schedule is looking crazy but all of those books look so good.  I can't wait to read them.  I wish I could read faster, but then I think I'd lose some of the pleasure I get from reading.

So what have you all been up to?  Read anything good?  Have a great week!

I'm currently reading...

Here's the rest of my June lineup.  I'm sure I won't get to finish all of these, but I'll be happy if I can get through at least half of them.

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


  1. I'm looking forward to your reviews of The Lemon Orchard and Save the Date. And will you hurry up and read Honeychurch!? You'll enjoy it. :D

    Have a good week.

    1. The giveaway and interview of The Lemon Orchard is Monday, but I won't be reviewing it until sometime in August.

      I know - I want to read Honeychurch so much, but my schedule keeps getting pushed around.

      You have a good week too!

  2. Nice haul, have a great week ! I've already seen the pic of the cat sleeping in the way, but it still makes me smile - we have the same (more or less) cat here !

    1. Cats take the greatest pictures, don't they?

      Have a great week!

  3. You have some lovely books this week (as usual!). I am eager to read The Lemon Orchard and I'll be checking out your spotlight.

    Enjoy your week...and here's MY WEEKLY SUNDAY/MONDAY UPDATES POST

  4. You're going to enjoy Honeychurch Hall! I hope you can fit it in soon. As for Tempest in a Teapot, I'm reading it now! Happy reading and have a great week!

  5. Save the Date looks so cute, I look forward to your review and wahoo to sunny days and warm weather!

  6. I'm with Bea and Lark! Read Honeychurch Hall! Your June lineup looks good and there's quite a few I want to read so I'll be watching for your reviews. I'm definitely interested in your Save the Date review. The excerpts you've posted have been really good.

  7. Honeychurch Hall looks good, and The Baffled Beatlemaniac Caper too. I just like that title, sounds quirky!

  8. I'm like that too ... wish I could read faster, but I like taking my time and enjoying the book. Hope you enjoy all your June reads.

  9. Yes, but if the weather was this wonderful every day, would you get as much reading done?!

    Here's my It's Monday.

  10. My review schedule is looking a bit more manageable this summer. I'll have a chance to lower TBR mountain a little. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  11. I am right there with you wanting to read faster. So many good books and never enough time.

    Have a great week!!

  12. Anything For A Mystery looks cute. :-)

  13. It's so tough to turn down those review copies! I hope you have a great week and find lots of time to read them.
