The Weekend Review - May 28th-30th

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!  

Not much going on this week.  I only finished one book this week.  That seems to be the norm for me lately, but hopefully that will change now that the TV season is over.  I still have some shows on Netflix to watch, but for the most part, I'm hoping to do more readidng.

As for the TV season finales...This Is Us was good and will be missed.  Another show I liked that came to an end was Bull.  Other season finales I watched this week, but the shows will be back next season - Survivor, NCIS, NCIS: LA, The Blacklist, Chicago Fire, PD and Med.  

This is a three day holiday weekend in the U.S.  I don't have any special plans.  Depending on the weather, we may try to get out to the pool or beach.  It's a bit too humid for me to do any kind of walking anywhere.  

I hope everyone has a great weekend and a great week.

  1. Hope you make it to the beach this weekend. Maybe I need to consider doing that on Monday. Although it will probably be cool at the beach then. It's coolish for us this weekend.

  2. I need to catch up on The Blacklist. I haven't watched it in a while. Have a great week!

  3. Have a good Memorial Day and a bookish week!

  7. Something Shady at Sunshine Haven looks fun. Enjoy the long weekend!

  8. I hope you get more time to read as your tv series wind down. I've been very curious to hear what people thought about the conclusion of the This is Us series.

    Hope you have a lovely and relaxing weekend, Yvonne!

  9. I am glad you are enjoying your tv series and hope you will get back to reading more soon. I wish the same for me too, honestly.

  10. You have several tempting books. Enjoy!

    I am definitely going to miss This Is Us! I may eventually binge the whole series on Hulu, LOL.

    Enjoy your week, and here are my WEEKLY UPDATES

  11. Have a great Memorial Day! I've been doing more watching than reading lately- I really need to get back to the books! :)

  12. I only finished one book this week, too. I've had a hard time staying focused on much of anything. Hopefully, I can rev up my reading in the coming week. Enjoy the long weekend!

  13. I used to watch NCIS, but I haven't for years. I hope it's still just as good as it was when I watched it. I hope you have a good week.

  14. I will miss This is Us too. I am o glad Blacklist was renewed. The acting and writing on that show is amazing. Have a good week. XO

  15. Hopefully you can get out and enjoy the weekend. The weather here is pretty terrible, which is no big loss because we're celebrating the weekend with Covid. Yuck!

    Have a great weekend! - Melinda @ A Web of Stories

  16. Reading one book a week at the moment sounds fine. Hope you enjoy the 3 day weekend.

  17. Have a nice long weekend. We have rain and thunderstorms and fog. It is good "staying inside" weather where I live. I liked Bayou Book Thief and hope you do too. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  18. I'm watching the end of This Is Us, too (but I'm behind so no spoilers!). And we are also sorry to see Bull end - we've been enjoying it. We also watch The Blacklist - is there really ANOTHER season coming?? That one feels like it's overstayed its welcome at this point!

    Looks like a nice variety of books for you, too - enjoy your books and TV this week!

  19. I just discovered there was an NCIS Hawaii! I haven't watched it yet but I've loved the other NCIS shows so I'm excited. I'm looking forward to Bayou Book Thief. I really loved her Bayou mysteries. Have a wonderful week!
