Sunday/Monday Posts - July 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!  Happy Holiday Week in the US!

We're having a heatwave in my part of the world this week.  It's scorching hot out there, so I'm in here with my books and a/c.  Feels nice to me :)  I will be off line for a few days this week.  I'm just taking a much needed break from downsizing and going through all of our house stuff.

I have already managed to finish two reading challenges - the Audio Book Challenge and my own Cruisin' thru the Cozies.  I still have a few challenges to complete, but the year is only half over (I can't even believe it is going so fast).

I do have to get my reading organized.  I'm always trying to do that and then I never follow my list, but I'm still going to give it a try.  I have so many good books coming up and, once again, I want to read everything at once.  That never works.  LOL

I haven't been doing too much TV watching, but I did start the Netflix series Safe.  It stars Michael C. Hall. It's really good and I only have two episodes left.  I don't know what, if anything, I'll start next.  I seem to be more interested in reading than watching TV lately.  That's not a bad thing :)

I hope everyone has a great week.  For those in the US celebrating July 4th, I hope you have a wonderful holiday.

Here are this week's Kindle freebie haul. 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. The prices change quickly.

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


  1. I'm in scorching heat in Bangkok myself on a short holiday. No reading done but trying to visit a few blogs.

  2. Once again I'm craving the cozies you shared. LOL It's boiling hot here too and the pool sure feels good:) Sounds like you are doing great on your challenges. reminds me I need to go update mine. Have a lovely time off:)

  3. Oh Someone's Daughter looks like my kind of thriller. I will have to check it out! Have a wonderful week!

    Mary my #SundayRoundup #25!

  4. It's extremely hot here too! Thank goodness for A/C! Congrats on meeting some challenge goals! I hope you enjoy all your upcoming reads. I'll admit, I'm a little intrigued by The President is Missing. Have a great week :D

  5. Yes, hot here, too! I am very grateful for AC, and recall that we didn't have it when I was a kid. We used to run through sprinklers...LOL.

    I also enjoyed Safe. Couldn't stop watching.

    I have a hold on The President Is Missing.

    I have Our House on my list for this month.

    Enjoy your week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  6. I'll have to put Safe on my Netflix list. The fry book looks good. Have a great week!

  7. Tail of the Dragon looks like a good cozy!

  8. Stay cool, we have a heat wave here too. Interesting set of books, enjoy them! The Klepto Cat one looks fun.

  9. It's pretty darned hot here, too. I plan to stay inside as much as possible! I hope you have a good week, and enjoy those review books!

  10. Wow congrats on the challenges! It's been hot here too, seems like everyone is saying that. I wish it would just stay in the 70's/ 80's... I don't need these 90's. :)

    Safe looks interesting, I may try that one.

    Happy 4th this week!

  11. I've been hearing lots of good things about Safe. I really need to watch that show soon! Hope you have a good break!

    Here’s my Sunday Post!

    Ronyell @ Rabbit Ears Book Blog and join in this week’s Book Photo Sundays and Cover Spotlight!

  12. I didn't realize that Patricia Fry had another book out, I need to look into that. Have a great 4th! Good luck with downsizing, we need to do that too.

  13. It’s so hot here, too. It was over 100 degrees a few days ago. Congrats on finishing your challenges. I’m still behind on all of mine. Have a good week!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  14. Try and stay cool! And enjoy your new books.

  15. Lots of heat going around. I'm enjoying reading in the air conditioned comfort of my home too. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  16. I've heard its hot your way, no I don't like lots of heat so staying indoors sounds good! I don't have air conditioning at my place - few NZ homes do, so would be no good in a heat wave. Lots of nice looking cozies in your reading line up.

  17. are rocking the challenges. Enjoy your unplug time!

  18. Organizing reading is HARD, but you must be doing it to some extent between the number of books you review and the challenges you are already completing!

    Happy reading! And happy holiday!

  19. I'll have to check out Safe. We just started reading Longmire and are really enjoying it but I'm sure we'll finish something else soon! I'm staying inside right now too. The humidity is killing me! Hope you're having a great week!

  20. I am generally usually grateful for air conditioning, but my office has been a freezer the past couple of weeks. It's been awful. Yay for finishing reading challenges! Congratulations. I should check out Safe. My husband and I started watching Miss Fisher on Netflix. It's really good! I hope you have a great week, Yvonne! Happy Reading!
