The Weekend Review - January 30th-February 1st

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!  

It's really hard to believe January is almost over.  I have no idea where the time goes, but time is sure flying.  

Not a very exciting week.  I had my wellness check up with my doctor and everything went well.  I told him about the pain I've been having in my shoulder so he is sending me for an x-ray and then, possibly, for physical therapy.  I'll know after Monday.  The pain comes and goes but he said it's swollen so there's something might be bursitis.  I guess the x-ray will tell us more.

I finished reading two books this week.  Both were good and part of blog tours, so the reviews will be up in the next week or so.  

I'm a bit behind on my TV viewing, but I don't really mind.  I've been enjoying my books and I'm very happy escaping into them.  I need an escape from the craziness that continues in the world around us.  

It's been an overall quiet week and I always appreciate those.  I hope you all have a great week!

  8. Yvonne, I glad you have enjoyed two more books this week and that your health check went well. I hope the x-ray will help to understand what is wrong with your shoulder, so you can get the treatment you need. Take care and happy reading for the coming week. 🙂

  9. I love your choice of books and those are some interesting reads on your tours!

  10. I enjoyed The Perfect Guests. I'm having my left shoulder looked at when I go to the doctor for my annual checkup in a few weeks. I have arthritis in my right shoulder and I'm starting to have the same pain in my left shoulder. I hope you get some relief.

  11. I hope you find some relief for your shoulder.
    I’m used to read so many Harlequins when I was at uni, the Intrigue and Desire were my favourite lines.

    Wishing you a great reading week

  12. I really hope they can get to bottom of your shoulder pain - I'm aware that it can be extremely painful and really limit your arm movement. In the meantime, have a great reading week, Yvonne:)

  13. Ooo-ouch! Hope you get answers and relief for your shoulder pain soon!

    May we all have a quiet first week of Feb. Only good excitement allowed!

  14. You've got some splendid upcoming reads! I hope they sort the shoulder for you.

  19. I hope your swelling goes down soon. For me, I stay away from gluten and this helps with inflammation. Have a great reading week!
