Sunday/Monday Posts - October 1st and 2nd

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!

Welcome October!  Our weather keeps switching between summer and fall, but this weekend we seem to be matching the calendar.  It's cool, but sunny.

I've been doing well with juggling TV and reading.  I completed two reading challenges and now with the TV season starting, again, I'm sure my reading time will be limited again.  I had been binging on the last season of Bloodline on Netflix and enjoying that.  I still have the last two episodes to watch.  That's on hold for now.

I'm glad to see some of my favorite TV shows return - Survivor, The Blacklist, The Big Bang Theory, and quite a few more that I can't think of right now.  There are a couple of new shows I watched and enjoyed - The Good Doctor and Young Sheldon.  There are still more shows on my DVR.

It's pretty quiet over here and I'm more than happy about that.  I like quiet :)  I hope you are all having a great week and finding good books to read and good shows to watch.  Enjoy!

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. Yvonne, enjoy your shows and your reading. We've had cool mornings and warm days here lately. It's been quite nice!

  2. Great looking books! I love the titles and covers of the cozies, especially The Quiche and the Dead (I love Quiche!).

    Hope to read my Robyn Carr book soon.

    Thanks for sharing, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  3. Just finished ‘A Treasure to Die For”- a 4 Star Read, and I have 16 MM in my TBR queue

  4. I'm currently trying to get back into TV myself. I've been enjoying the Orville so far and I'm getting ready for Ghosted and Gifted! Let's hope both of those shows are good!

  10. That cozy you are presently reading looks like fun, I am always in awe of how they come up with great titles and covers for cozy books.

  11. I think my reading rate will decline now that fall TV has started. I like the concept of The Good Doctor, but I'm not sure I'll stick with it. I really like The Brave. Girl Who Reads
