The Weekend Review - November 7th-9th

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.

Hi Everyone!  

What a week!  I wasn't going to post today, but decided to go ahead.  I've been posting about my kitty Cookie being sick.  Sadly, she passed away this week.  For my post about her, you can read it here.  We are heartbroken and I haven't felt much like doing anything.  I started reading four different books and haven't been able to concentrate on any of them.  Not the books' fault at all.  I just have been too depressed to read very much.  

This weekend we are under a Tropical Storm watch.  Just to add to my horrible week.  I don't even care.  I'm just at home trying to find things to keep me occupied like watching non-stop election coverage and doing laundry. 

I did manage to get some Kindle freebies like I usually do.   Sorry for being a downer this week, I just need time.  

So, what has your week been like?  I hope you all have a great week!

  1. I am so sorry, Yvonne. There are no words. I know the grief of having to say goodbye to our fur companions. It's so heartbreaking. I'm thinking of you.

  2. Oh no- I'm so sorry!!!! That's awful. Sending tons of sympathy and well wishes your way.

    I hope you don't get hit too hard by the storm. Take care and be well...

  3. I'm so sorry to hear about your pet! My cat is 18 years old and I dread the day I have to say goodbye to her... Feeling for you and lots of hugs!

  4. I am so so so so very sorry Yvonne. My heart is there with you. You are welcome to visit and virtual cuddle Elza any time you want.

    Reading always help. I am trying to think of what. Have you read Mr God, this is Anna by Fin? It always gives hope and yes - I do believe there is a rainbow bridge in heaven.

    Lots of love to you Yvonne,

    Mareli & Elza

    The Sunday Post #17

  5. Not the best time for you, I'm so sorry and am sending as many good vibrations your way as I can. I hope the storm won't make too much damage *hugs*

  6. I'm so sorry about your cat! They really are our family even though they're four-legged and furry... Do what you need to to take care of yourself.

  7. It’s crazy what sadness can do for your book reading. I know I went through a terrible reading drought and it lasted me 3-5 months. I’m so sorry about your cat.. my prayers are with your family and thanks for blogging through it all.

  8. I am so sad to hear about your cat. That is such a loss. I wish I had words of comfort.

    Another hurricane? When will all of this end?

    I hope you are able to rest and feel restored amid all of these terrible things.

  9. So sorry about Cookie! That loss transcends all the other events...but hopefully your books will begin to grab and engage you.

  15. So sorry to hear about Cookie. We lost our kitty this past summer. So heartbreaking! Of course, you're down. Perfectly normal to feel out of it when we lose a beloved pet.
