Sunday/Monday Posts - January 7th and 8th

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!'s crazy cold here.  This morning it's only 2 degrees F.  The windchill factor makes it feel like 8 below 0.  It's been like this all week.  Plus, we had a major snowstorm which left about 14 inches of snow.  I really, really, really hate winter.  LOL  I had to be at work at 7 am yesterday and it was brutal as far as the temps go.   I much rather would have been cuddled up in bed.

Slowly but surely I'm getting back into the swing of things on the blog.  I started participating again in the Friday book memes.  Hopefully, I'll be back for the memes on Tuesday and Wednesday too.

I'm already behind on my TV viewing and the season just started this week.  LOL  I did see The Blacklist and that was really good.  I, also, tried the new show 911 and that's off to a good start.

Not too much else going on here.  I know I'm looking forward to the thaw that is supposedly coming this week...we may actually get all the way up to 30F.  It will feel balmy :)

Hope you all have a great week!

Here are this week's Kindle freebies...  They were freebies when I got them, I don't know if they still are. Always make sure to check they are still free before buying.

These books are all coming up for blog tours in the next couple of months:


  1. I love the look of your cozies! And the weather there is very chilling...we seldom get below 30. But our HOT summers are our punishment for mild winters, I'm sure.

    Enjoy your week! Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  2. We got a lot of snow lately and I sure hope it stays below freezing cos ice and melt is blerh

  3. Enjoy the new books and try and stay warm. :)

  4. You will love “premeditated murder”. My goal for the week is to finish Tremontaine and start Six of Crows. I also have three Library books: “Lincoln in Bardo” “The Storied Life of A J Vickery” and “Future Home of the Unseen God”

  5. I'm way behind on reading and reviewing mainly because leaving for Melbourne on Wednesday night. Being away for a month is a whole lot of pre planning for both sides!

  6. I think you should receive an Oscar for making yourself get up and go to work when it is that cold! Amazing.

  7. Oh gosh, I have to get For Whom the Bread Rolls! I love that title and I enjoy a good culinary cozy. We're having a heatwave -- it's going up to about 28F today!

  8. Your temperatures were what we hoped for. We were colder but didn't get any snow. I'll take cold rather than snow any day. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  9. Those cozy titles crack me up. For Whom the Bread Rolls! So fun and clever. Happy reading and hope it warms up!

  10. Yvonne, hopefully this week will be warmer. The cozy titles are clever and cute!

  11. As always your books look so tempting. I'm behind in all of my favorite TV shows too. The kids are back in school but my husband has one more week off. Come see what I'm reading

  12. We are expecting that warm up too with some sunshine! Have a great week.

  13. It's been very cold here, but then we had a few really nice days again, but it was followed by today's snow and ice. So guess that's how it goes. Hope you have a great week!
