Sunday/Monday Posts - August 10th and 11th

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! 

I hope you all had a great week!  Mine was okay.  I managed to get some reading done but I seem to be spending more time doing blog stuff.  I had a busy week with blog tours.  Something scheduled for every day this week.  Not so much for next week, so I get a bit of a breather for a very short time.

I finished watching all three seasons of Scandal on Netflix.  What an amazing show!  I still can't believe I wasn't watching it all this time.  I can't wait for its return in the fall.  I'm not going to get involved in another show for now since Dallas will be returning soon and I can also use more reading time (who couldn't?)

Other shows I'm still enjoying - True Blood, The Last Ship and Falling Skies.

I have a couple of movies to watch this weekend - Noah and Oculus.  Both of them look pretty good. 

Not much else going on around here. What's been going on with you?  What have you been reading and/or watching?

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


  1. Noah was good, Oculus, dunno what that is

  2. Scandal is one of my favorite shows, and I am (im)patiently awaiting the new season. Off to find out more about one of your featured books--Well Read Then Dead. The title and cover are irresistible.

    My Sunday post:

  3. I've heard Scandal is very good. I've just finished the second season of American Horror Story on Netflix and OMG. I truly enjoyed this show.

  4. I keep hearing really good things about Scandal, and I'm overdue for a Netflix binge.

    Enjoy your new books...I like the look of Well Read, Then Dead.


  5. I like the looks of Mission to Murder, and Well Read Then Dead. They look like fun cozies and with good plots.

    Oh wow, is all I can say about finishing up the 3 seasons of Scandal last night! I had my kindle fire propped up while I cooked dinner because I couldn't drag my eyes away-- what a season finale, fantastic! You got me interested in it, so thank you, thank you!

  6. I saw Noah in the theater and it was something else, big screen was perfect for it. I hope you enjoy it.

    I've been enjoying The Last Ship, The Lottery and Witches of East End, and I'm looking forward to Dallas starting back up.

    Have a great week!

  7. I haven't tried Scandal and will check it out. Mission to Murder looks quite good. Have a wonderful week Yvonne

  8. Scandal is on my To Watch list which is almost as long as my To Read list but I'll get there eventually. I'm excited to start Mission to Murder as I enjoyed the first one and Well Read, Then Dead looks good too. Have a great week!

  9. I heard a lot about Scandal so I may have to check it out lol ! Glad you had a great week and hope this will will be as good ;)

  10. Looks like some great cozies. Enjoy your week.
