The Weekend Review - April 10th-12th

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!  Happy Weekend! 

Another beautiful weather week in Florida.  We took a walk at a nature preserve and it was so nice.    Here's a photo from my walk and a friend we met along the way.

I didn't get much reading done this week, but I did finish one book and I found a new cozy mystery series to listen to on audio.

My DVR is filling up, but I haven't been in the mood to stay inside and watch TV with the weather being so nice.  I figure I should enjoy the weather as long as we have it.

Not much else is new here.  I hope you are all have a wonderful weekend and have a great week!

  1. Oh wow looks beautiful there! I always love visiting Florida before it gets really hot! :) So much beauty there.

    I hope your books are all good this week.

  2. Our weather has been perfect here in Ohio so we've been spending a lot of time outside too. Happy reading!

  3. What a gorgeous walk! I really need to get outside more - especially before the mosquitoes come out! The Allison Brennan book has been calling my name and I'm curious about the Susan Mallery. Have a great week!

  4. Lovely pics! What part of Florida are you in? I agree, this weather has been too nice to stay indoors.
    I'm loving some of those book covers.

  5. Gorgeous photos! I would definitely be out enjoying that lovely weather rather than watching TV too! Sadly the weather has taken a cold turn again here in the UK. Take care and happy reading in the coming week. 🙂

  6. Yesterday we had the most beautiful weather I can ever remember seeing in my life. I am eager to be outside, too.

    We have two big nature preserves near us, and it's a delight to come across birds and other creatures there. I'm glad you made a new friend there.

    I like the look of A Cat on the Case, and I will look forward to your review of Invisible Husband.

  7. Oh, it looks absolutely beautiful there! Our favourite nature reserve is due to open during the coming week and I'm hoping to get fit enough to be able to visit it sometime this summer:)).

  8. Our weather has been rainy and I wish it would stop so I can plant my garden! I think I have maybe three days before more rain to get it all done! :)

    Enjoy those reads!
