The Weekend Review - June 8th - 10th

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!

It's really feeling like summer now and I'm enjoying the weather.  I'm not reading much, but that's another story.  LOL

I'm pretty booked with blog tours for June and July - mostly spotlights.   I do have reviews I need to get done as well.  I've decided to stick to posting on my Weekend Review for now.  I'll post other book memes after the summer.  Possibly before, but my plan is for after the summer.  Besides reviews, I have some personal stuff going on (nothing bad) so only doing the Weekend Review, spotlights and reviews will help alot.

I'm not watching much TV...I do want to try the new show Grand Hotel.  That looks like it might be good.  I'm watching a couple of Netflix shows - Dead to Me and I will be watching Designated Survivor.  I'm also going to check out season 2 of Big Little Lies.  I watched last season and enjoyed it.  I'm not watching nearly as much as I do in the fall and spring seasons.

We went to a street fair today which was nice.  I just love walking through and checking everything out.  The street fair season has arrived here...there's another one tomorrow :) 

I hope you all have a great week!

I'm currently reading...

I finished reading...

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. I really wasn’t a fan of the tv adaption of Big Little Lies, though I loved the book.

    Have a great reading week, enjoy the sunshine

  2. Nice collection of reads and busy weeks ahead in the book world for you.

  3. I will love to see what you think of Montauk. It looks wonderful.

    I always slow down in the summer. It seems like there is so much going on.

    Have a great reading week!

  4. I am looking forward to your review of Montauk. I just read it and would love to read someone else's thoughts. :)

    Enjoy the summer weather!

  5. Dead to Me was good. I have to catch up on Big Little Lies. Have a great week.

  6. Montauk is everywhere this week! Love the cover and have added it to my list.

  7. Your books all look good.

    I am also watching Dead to Me...and saw the beginning of Season II, Big Little Lies.

    I finally have my Blu-Ray hooked up so I can watch the streaming services. I don't have a Smart TV, so that's what works for me.

    Enjoy your week!

  8. That cover of Montauk makes it look so enticing!

  9. I might get Netflix so we can see Designated Survivor. Have a great week! XO

  10. Enjoy your summer and looks like you have some good reading ahead. I really enjoyed "Dead to Me."

  11. I've seen Montauk appearing a lot on what people are reading lately, I guess I'll wait to reviews start appearing on the blogs to make a decision about it.

  12. These books are all new to me. Nice looking covers! Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  13. Summer is definitely a good time for a less hectic schedule. I haven't watched much TV lately since they keep taking shows I like off the air.

    I would love to read so many of the books on your list. Hope you enjoy them.

  14. It's great to take a lighter load in the summer and get outside more. Have a lovely week!
