The Weekend Review - August 28th-30th

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!  

My prayers for those in the path of Hurricane Ida, I hope the forecasters are wrong and it passes you by and heads out to sea.  It will sure be nice when storm season is over.  Take care of yourselves and stay safe.  

Today is Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day where we remember those furbabies no longer with us.  I didn't want to write an entire blog post about it as it just makes me so sad.  However, I do want to honor those I've lost over the years.  I miss them all so much and I haven't forgotten any of them.

As for this week...I didn't have too many blog posts.  It was a light week and I think next week might be too.  Things should get busier in September.  Can you believe it's almost September?  Everyone is talking about Halloween already.

Nothing else to report this week.  I'm just trying to read and relax.    I hope you all have a great week.  Stay safe.

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 can't believe it is almost September. Fall is great, but for us it means winter will be here soon. I am not excited about that.

    Looks like you read some good books!

    Have a relaxing week!

  2. It is nice to have a day set aside to remember our angels, although they are always on our minds. Penny is doing a post abut Halloween costumes on Tuesday.

  3. So many books. How do you keep them all straight? I am greatly impressed.

  4. I know, I can't believe we're talking Halloween already!

    I'm really hoping Deadly Summer Nights is good- I think I want to get that one lol.

  5. All those in the path of these storms are in my prayers, too! 🙏 I also can't believe it is almost September! Where did summer go?! 😅

    Take care and happy reading in the coming week. 🙂

  6. I am concerned for those in the path of this big storm Ida. The destruction of hurricanes is terrible. During this time of year, I often wish I lived somewhere else.

    I'm glad you are able to spend time remembering your furbabies.

    And it might feel like a light week to you, but it still looks plenty busy here to me!

  7. If You Love Me is giving me all the fall vibes ! I love your Kindle freebies, I need to start looking for them. I hope you have an amazing week ahead!

    Here is my link:

  8. So many great reads you have coming up! I am really curious about Deadly Summer Nights!

    Have a great week and happy reading!
    Week in Review

  9. Ah, remembering the fur babies!

    Stay safe, and have a great week. I like the look of your book Seniors and Scams.

    Here are my WEEKLY UPDATES

  10. I had to say goodbye to a few furbabies myself over the years. Miss you guys: Snoopy, Gretel, Miss Kitty, Mitzie, Lucy, Chelsea (aka Pupaya), Kaila, and Natasha.

  11. How to Kill Your Best Friend looks like a good one. Happy reading.

  12. I just noticed all the Halloween candy out on the shelves! Not ready to let summer go.

  13. There are so many wonderful furbabies who have crossed the rainbow bridge. Have a wonderful week!

  14. deadly Summer Nights looks good. I saw Katherine from I Wish I lived in a Library is going to read it too.

  15. This year, much like last year, has been simultaneously the slowest and quickest to pass!

    Wishing you a great reading week, and solace for your losses.

  16. It is hard to believe that it is nearly September!

  17. I can't believe it is almost September, but I love fall (and I love my kids going back to ACTUAL school), so I can't complain!

    Have a great week! - Melinda @ A Web of Stories

  18. The year is going by so fast! I do hope that Ida doesn't do immense damage though it sounds like New Orleans took quite a hit. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  19. looking forward to your thoughts on How to kill your best friend.
