The Weekend Review - October 27th through 29th

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!

We're having a nor'easter today on the east coast.  It's nasty out there with quite a bit of rain and wind.  I'm just happy there's no snow.  It's the perfect type of day to just catch up on reading and watching my TV shows.

I finished two books this week and really enjoying all my books.  I'm already thinking about the reading challenges I'll be hosting next year.  I'm keeping my Cruisin' thru the Cozies, What an Animal Reading Challenge and The Purrfect Reading Challenge.  I'm looking forward to re-visiting them next year (which is just a couple of months away - hard to believe).

I'm going to be unplugging for the next couple of weeks.  I'm taking a much needed break, but I will be back. 

So, what's going on in your part of the world?  Read anything good?  Watch anything good?  Hope you all have a great couple of weeks.

The next books I will be reading...

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 and/or blog tours in the next couple of months:


  1. Ohhhhh The Au Pair seems so interesting! I loved reading through your list

    Here's my Stacking The Shelves

  2. I sometimes like stormy days. A good reason to stay in and read. Looks like you have some good ones. Enjoy your time off!

    My Sunday Post

  3. We've got rubbish weather here too, but it's more cold drizzle than stormy. Fortunately I have lots of books awaiting me :-)
    I'm starting to think about next year's reading challenges too

  4. Stormy days are good for curling up to read and watch long as your power stays on.

    Have a great two weeks of unplugged time.


  5. I spied some yummy cowboys in your book pile! Enjoy cuddling by the TV and reading.

  6. Yes - we've just had our first sharp frost of the year and it's been a nasty surprise! I'm certainly curling up by the fire tonight. Enjoy being unplugged for a while, Yvonne.

  7. Enjoy your unplugging! I wish I could do that. I think I’d be happier if I could get away from electronics for a while. Have a great week!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  8. Me and my daughter just picked up a few books today. Uggh I have to curb this book spending till at least next year. =)

    Enjoy the new books!

  9. I need to figure out where I stand on my challenges. I know I've killed my library one and What An Animal one - so glad you're doing it again next year. However, I don't think I've linked any reviews. I better get busy. I am not a huge fan of Christmas movies or books but do try to read a few. However, this year, I'm more excited than usually so I'm hoping I can read all of the books!

  10. Gray and gloom have returned to my part of Minnesota. The Au Pair is on my review stack too. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  11. So many great looking cozies. Do enjoy being unplugged, it sure makes a difference, after the first few days of withdrawal symptoms!!
