The Weekend Review - September 11-13th

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 week has flown by.  My reading seems to be slowing down, though.  I only read one book this week.  Part of the reason for that is that I've been binge-watching The Yard on Netflix and finished the series.  It was really good.  I have to watch the last few episodes of Grace and Frankie now.  

I've been busy with blog tours, though.  Most of them are spotlights and don't need a review.  I picked up a few Kindle freebies.  Most seem to be romances this week.  A bit of a change from my mysteries and thrillers, but I'm not sure when I'll have a chance to read any of them.

Now that I finished The Yard, I hope to find more reading time this week.  I hope you all have a great week.  Take care and stay safe.

Blog Tours/Spotlights/Reviews/Giveaways Coming Up Next Week

I'm currently reading...

I finished reading ...

I'm planning to read this one next...

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've been binging a few shows as well so my reading is down as well. It seems to go in cycles lol.

    Last Seen Alone looks interesting. Now that we're into fall I'm starting to want to read thrillers again...

  2. Thank you 😊 I hope you have a great upcoming week, too and that you have some more time to read after your binge of The Yard. 🤞

  3. I've been looking for something new to watch, I'll check out The Yard.

    Enjoy your new books!

  4. My reading has slowed, especially my reading of fiction. Yesterday I sadly set aside a book I'd been looking forward to reading for months. I'm not sure why. Instead of reading meaty books, I've been resorting to some light reads.

    Maybe I need to try some cozies. I love the look of Incantation of Cats. It looks delightful.

  5. I need to find something new to watch on Netflix. I usually just end up re-watching Derry Girls. Have a great week!

  6. I love Grace and Frankie...and watched the four recent episodes a couple of weeks ago. Now I want to check out The Yard.

    Enjoy your week, and here are my WEEKLY UPDATES

  7. I'm the opposite this week. Found an author I like and have been turning the TV OFF and reading nonstop. I have no idea when things will go back to normal for me.

    So are all the episodes of Grace & Frankie out yet? I'm waiting until the season is complete to start on it.

  8. I haven't been watching a lot of tv at all over the last two weeks. The gaps that I have between school and life, I try to read. But gosh - there isn't much of that either!

    Love all the kitty books. Happy reading this week Yvonne and enjoy the spotlights.

  9. I've been having some slow weeks as well with reading. Although I did a little better this week. But I've got to pick up for the many review tours I have coming up. That Four Last Dates looks good! I'm going to go see if it is still free. Have a great week!

  10. I haven't heard about The Yard before. I'll have to check it out!
    The Laura Griffin books looks great.
    Have a great week and happy reading.

  11. My reading pace has been normal after having slowed down some. I'm not familiar with The Yard, I will have to look into it.

    Burden of Poof looks fun, I like Julie Anne Lindsey. I'll be curious to hear what you think.

    Have a good week!

  12. My reading has been slowing down lately too. I'm hoping to pick back up soon.

    Here’s my Sunday Post!

  13. Burden of Poof is such a great title I love it! Too funny!

  14. Burden of Proof looks good. My reading has slowed too, I keep falling asleep. :) XO

  15. It's either viewing or reading or something else that soaks up our time and we find oops, not so much reading achieved. But so long as we enjoy whatever we are doing.

  16. It's interesting to see that all the Christmas novels are starting to come out now!

    Enjoy your week!

  17. I had a pretty good week of reading but still so many to go!

    Wishing you a great reading week

  18. It's always nice to have a different genre to dip into when your usual isn't doing it for you. :)

  19. Love the cover of Last Seen Alone. Happy reading, have a good week.

  20. I know what you mean about Kindle freebies. I have thousands and don't think I'll ever get to them. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
