The Weekend Review - October 16th-18th

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!  

The humidity isn't too bad in my part of Florida right now.  It's really nice.  Unfortunately I've had a very bad cold all week so I haven't been able to enjoy it.  I will soon though.

I did manage to complete two books, so that's good.  I even managed to write my reviews so I wouldn't forget the books.  I'll post them later in the week.

I've been watching my TV shows and they've been good.  Baseball season is over for me since my team is out of it.  That just leaves me more reading time :)

Basically, I've been just trying to rest this week.  How have you all been?  Read or see anything good this week?  I hope everyone has a great week!

Blog Tours and Reviews coming up soon...


  1. Glad to hear the humidity has come down in your part of Florida. We have had some cool, fallish days this week which has been nice. This week I read Diary of a Young Naturalist by Dana McAnulty. It chronicles a year in the life of a fourteen year old boy who is autistic and spends much time in the natural world. I really enjoyed it.

    Have a good weekend!

  2. I hope you feel better soon! Enjoy your books.

  3. I hope you have a great week, humidity free! I have my eye on Nanny Dearest and My Darling Husband.

    Here are my WEEKLY UPDATES

  4. I’m glad your weather is getting better. I hope you are able to enjoy it more soon.

    A Cat on the Case reminds me that a cat would definitely be a good detective!

  5. It's always good news when the humidity goes down in my part of the world. I hope you can enjoy it soon.

    It's a great idea to review books as soon as they are finished, I think. That is my goal. The Cat on the Case looks delightful.

    Have a great week, Yvonne!

  6. sORRY ABOUT THE BAD COLD. yeah the cold is wrecking havoc and flu shots are encouraged and posted everywhere I go. Have a good week.

  7. I'm so glad to know I'm not the only one who has to write reviews ASAP so she doesn't forget book details xD And boo for the cold, but hopefully you'll feel better soon! I hope you enjoy your books and that you have a lovely week ahead :)

  8. I hope you get to feeling better, there is nothing worse than a cold. I hope to be able to read Matzah Ball, so nice to get a book for a holiday I celebrate!

    Here is my link:

  9. The last two days has put us back into winter. I really long for warmer weather now.

    The secret of snow still draws my attention. I am going to try to keep an eye out for your blog tour stop. If I forget, you are welcome to just send me the link.

    Have a good week Yvonne!

  10. Good to hear the humidity is better, but sorry you been unwell and so not able to get outside to enjoy it. I hope you feel better soon.

    As for my week is has flew by! However I did finally manage to finish The Count of Monte Cristo.

    Take care and happy reading. 🙂

  11. I hope you feel better soond! (And I hope it's just a cold.) Rest up, enjoy reading, and enjoy the break in humidity.

  12. Wow! Congrats on managing to write AND REVIEW books while suffering from a bad cold. I've never been able to read when sick for some reason. All I can do is sleep. Hope you're feeling better soon and can get out and enjoy your low-humidity weather! It got down into the 30's last night here in Arkansas so I had to turn on the heat! Daytime temps outside are perfect, however.

  13. Glad the humidity is dying down. I love summer but the humidity is the worst.

    I love the look of the Fiesta Burger Murder although that cover may be making me hungry!

  14. The humidity has dropped here as well and it's delightful! So sorry about your cold and hope you're feeling much much better. Have a great week!

  15. Sorry you have a cold. I have one too and it is such a pain after not having one for so long. Feel better. XO

  16. Sorry you've had a cold. Yucky. Great books as usual. The Father of Her Sons looks like fun.

  17. Sorry to hear you've been ill. Hope you feel tip-top soon.

    The Father of Her Sons and your freebie haul all look great. I'm eager to hear what you think of The Matzah Ball.

    Hope you have a great week.

  18. I'm still watching baseball and will until my Braves either win the World Series or are eliminated. So far, so good. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
