The Weekend Review - August 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 Everyone!

I can't say there's much to report this week.  It's been a quiet week as we continue to stay at home for the most part.  With a few exceptions, we've just been staying safe.

I've been busy hosting blog tours this month.  Mostly spotlights, but a few reviews too.  I've been reading some good books and there looks to be more good stuff waiting for me to read.  I haven't been doing much TV watching - mainly baseball and my two soaps.  I have been watching some true life ER shows on the TLC network (I think that's what it's called).  They are shows about actual ER cases that have been interesting.  Mostly I've been blogging and reading, though.

So, what have you been up to this week?  Read or watch anything good?  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.  

Blog Tours and Reviews coming up soon...


  1. I’ve had a quiet week too, you have some good books coming up, I like the look of Wrong Alibi, I’ll look out for it!

    Have a good week.

  2. My life feels like it has slowed to a crawl. But in a lot of ways that is good. I like the slowness. I miss being able to do things with others, though.

    I'm glad you are able to stay busy with your reading, your book tours, and blogging. I have been relying on blogging for companionship. Thank you so much for sharing what is going on in your life during this crazy time.

  3. I've lost all sense of time, I think. What day is it?

    At least we have our books for comfort. You always have a bunch that look great. Who could resist Bark Once for Murder?

    Have a good week, Yvonne!

  4. Thanks for the list of freebies, I just downloaded death and decluttering.

  5. I've mostly been staying in too except when I have to go out, although I've ventured out a bit more lately. It's nerve wracking though and if they ever say we can go without masks I think I'll be leery of doing so lol.

    Love that cover of Wrecked by Rum! :)

  6. I've been pretty busy this past two weeks and also came out a bit more. Mostly school, but at least there's company!

    I haven't read anything by Lisa Ungerer yet, but I have two or her books on my kindle.

    You have such great books on your list! Hope they all make you very happy.

    Enjoy your week and here's my The Sunday Post #7

  7. I had a quiet week too. Except for the gym I don't think we went out much at all.

  8. Looks like you've had a busy blogging week. And those new books look fun.

    Have a great week and happy reading.

  9. Glad you have had a quiet week - by definition it means it's been a peaceful one. I hope the coming week is also safe and book-filled, Yvonne:)

  10. We've been going out once a week to spend some time in nature and I'm hoping to move some of my homeschool to the park this week. Looking forward to the Unger book!

  11. I read a few good books, I watched Season 2 of the Alienist which I enjoyed more than the first.

    Wishing you a great reading week, stay safe

  12. Lots of good titles! I am drawn to Surviving Savannah and Confessions on the 7:45.

    Enjoy your books and your soaps...and stay safe!

  13. I think I would have preferred a quiet week this week! Hopefully next week will be a little more relaxing.

    I hope you have a great week ahead! :D

  14. Quiet weeks can be nice! You have some great books coming up I hope you love them all!

    Week in Review

  15. You have some great book reviews coming up. I can't wait to hear what you think of the Lisa Unger book. Hope you've had a great weekend!

  16. Yes, the usual. Stay home. And, finished a puzzle while listening to an audiobook :-). Have a good week.

  17. I remember those ER shows! I haven’t watched them in years. I think there was one called Sex Sent Me To The ER that was really funny. I hope you have a good week!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  18. Yep, usual quiet week here too. I am looking forward to company this week though. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  19. Sounds like you had a great week! I love that you have such a big book haul. I hope you absolutely love all of those books! Have a great week!

  20. That Laura Griffin looks tempting. I've enjoyed some of her books though I haven't read her in awhile. I'm really looking forward to the Allison Brook book! I love that series! Hope you're having a great week.
