The Weekend Review - October 30th-November 1st

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!  Happy Halloween!

This week we haven't had much humidity, but we have had sun and a nice breeze.  Since I'm feeling much better, I was able to walk a few times this week and I went back to listening to audiobooks.  So, that's a plus.

I only finished one book this week, but it was a great one and perfect for Halloween.

I continue to watch all my favorite shows like The Blacklist, New Amsterdam, Survivor and Chicago Fire, PD and Med.  I'm hoping to watch some spooky shows this Halloween weekend, but I'm not sure it will end up happening.  We'll see.

I hope you all have a great week and a fun Halloween!

    Hope you have a nice weekend :)

  3. I am very pleased to hear you are feeling better and have been able to get out for some nice walks while listening to your audiobooks. Have a safe All Hallows Eve, take care and happy reading 🙂

    Week in Review

  5. Yay for walks and audiobooks! I have been visiting family this week so there has been no time for reading or listening, really! But I'll hopefully get plenty of that in next week. I love the mix of thriller and cozy winter reads in your upcoming tours. I hope you have a lovely week ahead :)

  6. Great that you are doing a lot and I hope your Halloween is fantastic.

  7. It's been wildly windy here. I can't remember a time we had so much wind, outside of a hurricane!

    Deserts, Driving, and Derelicts looks good. I will look for your review.

    And who could resist Coffee Shop Girl?

  8. Glad you are feeling better and were able to get out walking.

    I am hoping to watch something spooky (or mysterious) this weekend as well!

    Have a great week!

  9. My Darling Husband and Nanny Dearest are on my list!

    Enjoy your books and your week, and here are my WEEKLY UPDATES

  10. Hi Yvonne! It sounds as if you had a fun Halloween reads week. Yea!

  11. Glad you are feeling better and able to get out for walks again. Love that time with an audiobook! It helps that the weather has gotten a little cooler and less humid, too. Take care.

  12. Glad you are feeling better. We are loving Blacklist, no Liz needed. Are you liking it so far this year?

    1. About The Blacklist - yes, I'm enjoying it. I started not to like Liz anyway in the past couple of seasons.

  13. Love the cover of Styled for Murder. Ah sunny humid free days are perfect. Nice to get out walking.

  14. I'm so glad Halloween is over because I don't do "spooky or scary" in my reading. I'm glad you are feeling better and walking and listening again. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  15. So glad you're feeling better and that you got some walks in. Lower humidity makes such a difference! Have a great week!
