The Weekend Review - May 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 Reading Reality.

Hi Everyone!  

Another fairly quiet week here.  Although this weekend is our 34th wedding anniversary, so we are going to try and get some celebration time (translated:  going out for dinner).  

I only finished one book this week, The Rooftop Party by Ellen Meister, and I loved it.  My review is part of a blog tour and will be posted later in the week.  It's my new favorite of 2021, so far.

We watched two movies Those Who Wish Me Dead and The Woman in the Window.  I thought both were really good.

I'm really behind on my TV shows this week, although I did watch Chicago Med, Fire and PD.  All three of those were good.  The Resident, too, was good.  The rest I have to catch up on.

That's about it from Florida.  I hope you all have a great week!
