The Weekend Review - August 25th through 27th

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!

As we head into September (I can't believe this is the last week of August!), our weather keeps alternating between nice and hot/humid.  Of course the cold winter will be here before you know it and I'll be complaining about that too.  LOL

I've been reading many good books.  The best is that I'm finally at a point where I can alternate between review books and books either from my TBR or the library.  I can read those just because I want to.  For a long time it's been only review books for me.  Although they are books I would have read anyway and wanted to, it's nice to read some that aren't on a schedule.

The Fall TV season will be here soon and I'm looking forward to revisiting old favorites and maybe watching some new ones.  There are a few that look interesting.  New Amsterdam, Manifest, A Million Little Things and The Rookie are a few I want to check out. 

Other than that, it's been a quiet week.  Just the way I like it :)  I hope you all have a great week and read many good books.

I'm currently reading...

Next book to read...

I'm finished reading...

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. We are looking forward to New Amsterdam too, he was good in Black List. I just ordered A Cat is a Cat, it was still free- thank you :)

  2. I agree it is nice to get non-ARC books read, and know exactly what you mean. I started scheduling them into my calendar and it makes me happy. Have a lovely week Yvonne!

  3. I do love the fall TV many tempting shows to try.

    I am also at a point where I can read more of my own books and library books...I only have 3 NetGalley books left on my shelf (one more for September and two for October). Now if I can stay away from the site!

    Enjoy your many good looking ones, like Murder, She Reported.


  4. I'm liking your new reads. And I too am at a point where I can relax and enjoy my own books as I've taken in less for review. It makes for more fun and less stress about writing the reviews and the books are more enjoyable that way:) Also anticipating the fall shows too!

  5. Lots of great books this week. I have Sofia Kelly's new one as a goodreads win. I will have to post that next week. Have a great week of reading!

    Mary my Sunday Roundup 33!

  6. I can't wait for autumn and our weather is already turning!

  7. I can smell Fall in the air! Bring on pumpkin everything. I'm really excited for some new TV shows too. Great haul and I'm always adding a book or two when I stop by.

  8. I love to read a little of everything and have finally resolved myself to not being able to review all the books I read. Keeps me from reading. LOL

  9. Haha, complaining about the weather seems to be a hobby for most people. I hate that it’s hot, but once it starts snowing, I’ll hate that, too. Have a great week!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  10. Cooling down here too, of course British weather is usually rubbish for this Bank Holiday weekend!

  11. I don't watch much TV other than sports and The Voice. I am looking forward to that. Our weather has been gray, gloomy, and humid. Great reading time. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  12. All those cozy mysteries! See what I read this month at Girl Who Reads

  13. High five for getting that balance between review and your own TBR. That is the spirit!

  14. Having a non ARC is always a nice treat. Getting that balance is nice. I've got awhile before I get there but I'm looking forward to it when it happens! So many great books! I'm so curious about some of the new shows. A Million Things is tempting me too. Have a great week!
