Sunday/Monday Posts - September 24th and 25th

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 with a new host!  It's now being hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. 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 Weekend Everyone!

Fall is officially here, but it still feels a bit like summer.  That's fine with me :)

I finished two books this week...both really good.  I'm also doing well with my challenges.  By the end of the coming week, I should have at least two more completed.  I'm not sure I will complete my Goodreads challenge of 100 books, but I still have three months, so you never know.

It seems like October and November are already being booked with blog tours.  I guess there are quite a number of books coming out.  Fortunately, they aren't all review tours - some are spotlights.

I finished binge watching Nurse Jackie.  What an excellent show.  I'm not sure what, if anything, I'll be binging on next since the new TV season starts this week.  So, I'll be busy with that.  For now, I'm enjoying Ray Donovan, Chesapeake Shores and Outlander.

It's been pretty quiet around here, which is good for my reading time :)  I hope you all have a great week and enjoy your books/TV/movies!

This week's Kindle freebies...  They were freebies when I got them, I don't know if they still are.

These books are all coming up for review requests and blog tours:


  1. I just finished talking about how fall is here where I live on my blog post today, and then I looked at the weather forecast. Summer is back. Haha. Oh well. It isn't really anything new.

    I'm loving the sound of The Secret Book & Scone Society and Kirsten Wiess can do no wrong in my book (at least so far). You've got some great sounding books, Yvonne. I hope you enjoy them!

    Have a great week!

  2. I just finished Nurse Jackie too! Even though I had seen it when on Showtime, I loved having it all to binge-watch. I still kept hoping for a different ending, though...kind of sad, but beautiful, too.

    I love the look of your cozies...enjoy!

    Have a great week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  3. Yup, it still feels a bit like summer here, but I don't mind at all :) I still have hopes of completing my 100 books challenge! You are right, there is still some time.
    The book with the cat looks cute, despite being a murder mystery :D
    Anyway! Have a great week :)

  4. I finally caved and started watching Gilmore Girls. I'm on season 1, episode 11. I still haven't checked out Nurse Jackie, but will. I love Chesapeake Shores!

    I see some books that caught my eye. I miss reading cozies.

  5. It is starting to look like Fall here and I am lovin it. I would really like to start Outlander, my husband and I keep seeing the ads for it. Enjoy your new books and the week ahead.

  6. Wow. You have a lot of books to review coming up! I hope you enjoy them all.

    It has been a hot September here too.

  7. Ooh, look at all the lovelies! Sounds like you're nailing those challenges. I have one left to complete and it's hard. I can't find a book with the letter Q in the title. LOL Been hot here too but not complaining. We know what comes next. I don't like cold.

  8. Summer is making a brief return here too. Nice looking bunch of books on your review stack. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  9. I've heard amazing things about Nurse Jackie. I really want to watch Chesapeake Shores and Outlander though I haven't read any of the books. Both shows look amazing. We had some fallish weather but it's heated up to the 90s again which I'm not pleased with. I don't want it to be cold but is highs in the 70s and 80s too much to ask? Have a great week!

  10. My end of year reading will be crammed with reading for the CYBILs. I don't know yet which books as nominations don't start until Sunday. Come see what I'm reading

  11. Yay for the challenges! It's been hot here too, even as the leaves are falling we're having summer temps too!

    So many fun looking cozies- The Secret Book & Scone Society, Murder for Christmas- I need to read some.

  12. I love cozy mysteries so I wrote down a few of your titles. They all look like fun so I'll have to read the descriptions on Amazon to choose a few. Enjoy your books this week!
