The Weekend Review - November 13th-15th

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 hope you've all been having a great week.  The weather in Florida has been so nice...very little humidity.  A pleasure for me to take my walks.  

I set up three of the reading challenges I host every year for 2022.  If anyone is interested, the links are in my sidebar.  I have one more to set up for the 2022 NetGalley and Edelweiss Reading Challenge. After that, I will decide which reading challenges, hosted by others, that I will join.  I just wanted to set up my own first.  

I finished one book this week and I, also, finished the audio book. Now I have to figure out which audio book to borrow from the library next.  

Not too much else is happening in my little part of the world.  It's been pretty quiet, overall.  I like it when it's like that.   

I hope you all have a great week!  Take care and stay safe!

  1. Your weather sounds nice. It's down into the 30's here now and windy- November in Michigan. :)

  2. Yay for good weather and lovely walks! You're well ahead of me in already having your challenges planned and prepped! I usually remember about halfway through January that a new year requires new challenges xD 'The Matzah Ball' looks like a very fun read! I hope you have a great week ahead :)

    best... mae at

  4. Wow. Good for you in getting things set up for your challenges for 2022. You host some fun challenges. The animal challenge sounds especially fun.

    I like weeks when very little happens. As opposed to 2020 when every day was something terrifying!

  5. Hey there! I sure enjoyed your post and checking out your reads/to be read! Deserts reminded me of a series I'm reading through, The Secret, Scone and Book Society by Ellery Adams. Sounds like a fun read!

  6. Great Recs. I'll add a few to list and can I recommend a Elin Hilderbrand novel to your holiday books.

  7. I know I should be thinking of goals and challenges for next year but I haven' I just can't believe it's already that time!

    Have a great day and happy reading!

    I read three books this week, but mostly because I didn't go anywhere at all!

    Enjoy your week, and here are my WEEKLY UPDATES

  9. Great selection of books . i have some in my stack.

  10. I should sign up for your Netgalley challenge next year. I really want to get my percentage up to 80%. I hover between 77% and 78%, depends when I add new books! You got some good books, I love the Julia Kent series. Have a great week!

  11. I like it when not a lot is going on in my little world too! I signed up for Cruzin' thru the Cozies and am looking forward to it.

    Have a good week!

  12. I didn't realize you hosted so many challenges. :)

  13. I love when the humidity drops! It makes going outside so much more pleasant. Non-busy weeks are definitely good. I hope you have a wonderful week!

  14. I've been enjoying this cooler weather, too - so much better for longer walks! Need to start thinking about whether I'll do challenges next year... I haven't for the past few but am considering it again.

  15. Books look great. The Matzah Ball looks like a fun read. Enjoy that weather.

  16. The weather is quite unsettled here, but definitely warming up as Summer approaches. I really have to put some thought into my 2022 challenges.

    Wishing you a great reading week

  17. Your weather makes me want to move to Florida! We got our first snow this week. Nice looking books this week. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  18. This is my first year with a book blog and I have enjoyed a few challenges and planning to do more in 2022. I want to be careful not to sign up for too many and have already been thinking/trying to organize as well. I will check out yours :)
