The Weekend Review - July 10-12th

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 Reading Reality.

Hi Everyone!  

I can't believe another week has gone by in July.  It's just going way too fast.  The weather here hasn't been too bad once Tropical Storm Elsa left.  We really just had a little rain from the storm.  Nothing major.  It's still hot and humid here, but not as bad as in other places for sure.  I managed to walk three times this week so I've gone back to audio books.  I'm not sure it's a good idea since I only listen while I'm walking and it's hit or miss whether I will walk - depends on the weather, of course.

I finished reading two books this week.  Both of them were good ones.  I picked up a few more freebies for my Kindle.

I'm not watching too many things on TV...just the HGTV show Love It or List It.  It's fun.

Other than that, it's been a quiet week.  How was your week?  Read or see anything good?  Hope the upcoming week is a good one for everyone.

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 totally feel you about how fast the week went. It feels like this year is going by a lot faster than 2020 did, which is both better and worse lol. Have a great week!

  2. The weather here in the midwest has been hot and rainy. I cannot wait for Fall!

    The Mother Next Door looks like an intriguing read.

  3. Glad you guys didn't get anything major from Elsa. It was humid here for a while but then it got mild- we've actually had windows open and nice breezes.

    Your books look fun. I want to get back into cozies a bit...

  4. Glad to hear the weather has been good for walking this week, after Storm Elsa left, and so you're back to enjoying your audiobooks. It has been humid and story here in the UK too, which I escaped from in the easy, nostalgic The Comedy Club Mystery by Peter Bartram. Take care and happy reading/listening in the coming week.🙂

  5. I'm glad you didn't receive any damage from Elsa. Hurricanes set us all on edge when you live near the water.

    We've gotten up early this week and walked, and we are happier for it.

    I note that both of your next reading possibilities feature cat characters!

  6. Sounds like a good week, and I hope you enjoy all of your upcoming reads. I have my eye on My Darling Husband.

    Here are my WEEKLY UPDATES

  7. I just discovered Love It or List It and I'm hooked!

    You have so many amazing looking books listed! Enjoy!

  8. Oooh I'm always looking for new books to add to my TBR. Cozy mysteries have been something I've wanted to dive into for awhile now but haven't. Glad you're doing well after the storm!

    Have a great week!

  9. I enjoyed reading Tango Trouble by Stella Bixby and I really enjoyed watching Biohackers on Netflix. The week really flew by for me. Hope you have a nice week!

  10. Hi Yvonne! I haven't started with the Ghost Camper's Tall Tales yet, will try to get to it later this week.

    Glad you had a good week with reading, I haven't read much over the passed two weeks, but plan on doing better this week!

    Have a good week ahead.

  11. You're right about July going way too fast! Same here. Lots of good books it looks like this week. Hope you have a nice one!

  12. I love HGTV and have been watching Love It or List It and so many other (the # is way up there) home buying/remodeling shows.

    Nice books!

    I hope you have a great week!

  13. I am loving the yellow van on the cover of Beaches, Bungalows and Burglaries. We got a ton of rain from Elsa in the middle of the night. my garden flooded and had some down trees on my kids go kart track. hope you have an amazing week

    my post:

  14. The weeks are definitely flying by!
    I've been terrible with audiobooks lately as I usually listen whilst driving and I'm not doing much driving anymore... Maybe I should add them into my walking! I usually walk to music but an audiobook may be good too. :)

  15. Death in Castle Dark looks good. Hope you get some good walking weather this week.

  16. I listened to the Tonya Kappes book on audio and really enjoyed it! Such a fun story. I'm not sure if we're getting the aftermath of Elsa or what but it's been raining like crazy here and I'm not a fan. Have a great week!

  17. It is hard to believe we are mid-July already! Glad you escaped damage from the storm.

  18. Sounds like a good week. I've not been very good about getting out to walk lately. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
