The Weekend Review - June 15th - 17th

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 being hosted by Deb at Readerbuzz.

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!

What a week!  I've been sick all week with bronchitis.  So has my husband.  As a result, I haven't felt like doing anything including reading.  I always think when I'm sick I will get alot of reading done, but it never ends up working out that way.  I end up not being able to concentrate.  I did more sleeping than anything else.  It's still with me, but I feel like I'm getting better each day.

I've had many blog tours lately.  Fortunately, I was able to pre-schedule those posts so they didn't get any delays while I wasn't feeling well.

I did start watching the new season of Designated Survivor on Netflix.  The first couple of episodes were good.  It's nice to have this show back.

Other than that, there's not much to report from here.  How are things in your corner of the world?  I hope everyone has a great week!

I'm planning to read this one next...

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.  Not too many this week.

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


  1. Yvonne, I'm sorry that you were sick, and hope you're feeling better. I missed about a week of blogging due to travel. Have a restful Sunday, and enjoy your reading in the week ahead!

  2. Sorry to hear you were sick all week... hope you're both better for the week ahead. I'm glad you enjoyed Montauk and have added it to my list. I've never been all the way out there, but my daughter has and she loves it.

  3. I hate it when I'm sick, and it's even worse when you are sick along with your husband. Hope you feel better soon.

    It was fortunate you had already prescheduled everything for this week. It's wonderful that you are able to get ahead.

    I've been curious about Montauk. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

  4. Glad you're feeling better! I see some books that caught my attention.

  5. I haven't written a Sunday Post this week but thought I'd still visit some friendly bloggers ;-)

    I'm sorry you've been so poorly, bronchitis is awful but I'm glad your feeling a bit better and are on the mend. Thank heavens for being able to schedule posts, eh?

    I hope you have a better week and enjoy your reads, Yvonne. X

    @Flora's Musings...

  6. I may have to get Netflix to see Designated Survivor. Get well soon! Happy Father's Day to your Cats' Daddy!

  7. Aww I hope you feel better! Idk what I would do without scheduling posts. It's on Instagram and I'm always forgetting to post 🤦🏽‍♀️ 🤷🏽‍♀️

  8. Awww...I'm sorry that you've been sick. I hope you feel better soon!

    Here’s my Sunday Post!

  9. Sorry you that you were sick, hope you continue to improve and are back to full strength soon. Enjoyed Designated Survivor too.

  10. I’m glad you are feeling better, I’m hoping the flu shot I got this season will let me avoid getting ill this winter.

    Have a great reading week, One More Lie sounds good.

  11. I hope you feel better soon! I like the look of Montauk...and I do need some good cozies.

    Enjoy your week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  12. ugh on being sick -- I hope you're on the mend and can get back to reading. Montauk is still on my list.

  13. I am so sorry you are both ill. Bronchitis is dreadful. I know what you mean about reading while sick. I am able to listen to audiobooks, or watch movies but sometimes reading is hard. Feel better.

  14. I've seen Montauk about quite a bit. Sorry you were sick, and yes when we are sick reading is just too much brain energy required. Take care.

  15. I hope you all are having a MUCH better week. Happy reading!
