The Weekend Review - December 11th-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!  

A fairly quiet week for me.  The weather here is getting warmer and I did manage a few more walks this week.  

My cough seems to be getting worse so I went for a CT scan of the sinuses today.  We'll see if it reveals anything.

I did finish three books this week.  I'm winding down for the year.  I'm hoping to complete two more challenges plus my Goodreads challenge.  We'll see if I can do it.  I have all the books ready and it's just a question of finding the time to read them.

Aside from that, I continue to watch my shows.  Most of them are airing finales now and won't be back until after the new more reading time for me 😁

That's about it from my corner of the world.  How are things by you?  I hope everyone has a great week!

I'm planning to read one of these next...


I'm still listening to...

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. Hope your CT is negative and that you feel better. It warmed up a little here too after getting COLD. Yikes.

    The Killing Game looks great!

  2. I found a few old mystery novels with a Christmas theme. I might get around to reading them. Happy holidays.

  3. The last two years have had me reading and reviewing like crazy, but I hope to get back to a more normal life in 2022 and slow my reading down so I can enjoy it more.

    I hope your CT scan is good and that your cough diminishes. I know so many here who have coughs with their allergies right now.

    Now I'm off to see your review of A Zen for Murder!

  4. Great book recs and its great that you're watching your shows. I think one should spoil themselves during the holidays and I've already started(wink)

  5. You have some tempting books. I have had my eye on My Darling Husband for a while.

    Enjoy your reading and viewing...and have a great week.

    Here are my WEEKLY UPDATES

  6. Ugh, I hope they figure out what is going on with your cough or that it goes away soon! You got a lot of fun books, I always love the mystery titles. Have a good week!

  7. I hope your cough gets better soon - that's no fun especially this time of year.

    We got around 12" of snow Friday night, so your weather sounds wonderful. Hope you are able to get out for some more walks.

    Have a good week!

  8. Every book blogger seems to have a new and different collection of Christmas books. It’s amazing how many there are. Especially on the Sunday Salon. Happy reading!

    best… mae at

  9. We hope and pray for positive results Yvonne! Take care of yourself in the meantime.

    I'm sure you'll be able to finish your Goodreads challenge! I finished mine yesterday and now I just need to link it up to the various challenges that maybe didn't go as well as planned...!

    Have a good week ahead!

  10. It's warm where I live, only a few cold mornings, but I'm looking forward to some cooler days.

    I see a lot of books that caught my attention. I'm so behind on my reading and reviews. :(

  11. I hope you feel better soon and pray the scan is clear.

    Your Christmas books look good. So does Murder at the Manor. Hope you enjoy all your books.

  12. I hope your CT scan reveals the issue so your discomfort can be dealt with! Lots of great looking books on your post! Happy reading!

  13. Great set of books you have been reading or will read. I haven't read a medical romance for awhile but I did like them very much and still read one now and then.

  14. Good luck with your challenges, and I hope you feel better soon. Have a great week.

  15. I hope you are able to find a solution for your sinus troubles. I won’t make my goodreads goal but I’m determined to finish most of my challenges.

    Wishing you a great reading week

  16. I hope you feel better soon and the CT scan reveals something useful. Nice assortment of books and good luck with completing your challenges. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  17. My Darling Husband looks like a good thriller. Happy holidays!

  18. I'll be thinking of you and your cough. It took me 6 weeks to get to the point where the cough is loose and less frequent. Hugs.

  19. Good luck with your CT scan. Hopefully you can make some progress on the cough. Those lingering coughs are so frustrating. Good luck with your reading challenges! I've hit my Goodreads goal but am trying to get a few more books finished up. Hope you're having a great week!
