The Weekend Review - August 3rd-5th

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!

We have been enjoying lovely summer weather these days.  It's hard to believe the summer is half over already.  Time really goes fast.

I've been spending my summer enjoying my books.  I finished two and a half books this week, which is good for me.  Usually I can only complete one.  Hopefully August will be a good one too.

I binge watched a new-to-me show on Netflix, Another Life.  It's a science fiction type of show and really good.  I don't know if it was a one season deal, but I'm hoping it will be back.  Ten episodes wasn't enough.  Next up is the new season of Orange is the New Black.   Other than that, I haven't been watching much as far as TV shows go.  I've been more interested in books lately.

I hope you are all enjoying your summer.  Have a great week everyone!

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.  

These books are coming up for a blog tour soon:


  1. I liked Another Life a lot, I definitely hope there's a second season! Especially the way this one ended. Yikes.

    A Night's Tail looks fun :)

  2. I haven’t watched Another Life yet, I’m still binging on Star Trek.. Deep Space 9

    Have a great reading week:)

  3. I love the cover for A Harvest of Bones! It looks like a perfect October read! :)

  4. Glad you got a lot of reading done. Have you watched Blood and Treasure? That is good and already renewed for season 2. Have a nice week. XO

  5. Another Life sounds like something I might like. I will have to check it out. I am so behind with Orange Is the New Black. The Perfect Son sounds really good. Your new books all look good! Especially A Harvest of Bones. Love that cover. I hope you have another wonderful week in reading, Yvonne!

  6. I enjoyed Another Life and had fun watching the last season of Orange Is The New Black. Now I'm watching the next season of Heartland. I spy a few books that I'll be checking out. Never can get enough of the cozies:)

  7. Teachers start back tomorrow here. That seems like a very short summer to me.

    I think I would like Another Life. I will look for it. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    I hope you have a delightful week!

  8. Another Life is getting lots of positive reviews. I've got a few other shows to get caught up on. Looking forward to Summer of '69.

  9. Great looking books. I'll check out Another Life as I'm always looking for another show to binge. I've been binge reading lately, working my way through several different book series.

    Have a good week!

  10. I'm so hesitant to try anything on TV these days. So many times I get into a show and then it is gone.

    Your books look great. I'm a big mystery lover, so that's always going to catch my eye. Hope you enjoy all your new books.

  11. I'm still thinking of Sunset Beach. I liked Summer of '69.

  12. I binge-watched OITNB's 7th season...couldn't stop watching.

    Enjoy your week and your books.

  13. I very seldom watch TV except for baseball games. I have never seen anything on NetFlix. I'm glad you are finding things to enjoy there. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  14. Some good looking relaxing books. I enjoyed the MKA book. I heard NetFlix is putting up their price in my country so I might cancel, I hardly ever use it! I got it mainly for The Crown.

  15. Nice selection of books. Mulberry Mischief has caught my eye. My weekly updates
