The Weekend Review - June 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!  

Another quiet week here.  Our weather alternated between sunny, humid and rain all week.  No special plans here, so it really didn't matter.

I did finish two books and I finally finished listening to Stanley Tucci's Taste.  I had to stop listening to audio as I couldn't go outside walking for one reason or other - the falls I had, the humidity and the rain.  I finally decided to just finish listening at home.  I didn't have much left.  I didn't write a review, but it was good and I really enjoyed having him narrate it.  It felt more personal.  He included personal tidbits along the way.  I don't do much cooking, but I do love to eat and I was craving Italian food every time I listened to this one.

I've been binging on the TV show Evil.  It's good and I have one more episode to watch.  I, also, watch the show Transplant which I really like.  Other than that, I've only been watching my two soaps - General Hospital and Days of Our Lives.

I don't have too much planned this week.  I hope you all have a great week!

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

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. I really enjoyed listening to the audiobook of Taste!

    I look forward to seeing your review of the new Viola Shipman book. I love his books.

  2. I would imagine that book would make me so hungry! I do want to watch Tucci's show, too, which I keep hearing about.

  3. Looks like you enjoy a good cozy mystery. I've been tempted to try Tucci's book but haven't got around to it yet. Happy Reading this week.

  4. A quiet week sounds very nice. Hope you enjoy Lynn Cahoon's new book if that is what you read next.

  5. Our weather has been a bit strange here. Typical UK though 😂

    Looks like you had a good reading week and have a good haul. I love a free kindle book - just need the time to read them all!

    Have a great week!

  6. I have been meaning to read Tucci's book, but there is a long waitlist for that one in my libray. Fingers crossed until then. I hope you have a great week ahead.

  7. I love that cover for The Proof Is In The Poison!

  8. I'm glad you enjoyed the book! I'm currently binge-watching Stranger Things. I'm excited to see the newest season. Have a great week!

  9. I just finished Bayou Book Thief too! :) Hope you have a great week!

    Week in Review

  10. I was planning on reading Tucci's book. But from your comment, I will give it a listen instead :-) Have a good week.

  11. The Tuesday Night Survivors Club... Oh I like that title!!

    Can't believe Days of our Lives are still running... I remember watching it with my granny when I was a girl. That's many many years ago...!!!!

    Have a good week Yvonne!

  12. So many good sounding books read and lined up. I loved the Stanley Tucci audiobook. Have a good week Yvonne.

  13. Your books look very good! Enjoy, and thanks for sharing. Here are my WEEKLY UPDATES

  14. Great book haul, enjoy your week!

  15. I like the show Evil as well, although the last season was really strange! But I'm excited for the new season starting this week. You've got a tour coming up I'll have to remember to come back and check out! Have a great week!

  16. I really need to watch Evil. My husband really enjoys it and I know I would too. It's just a rarity to get me to binge watch something.

  17. I loved the Tucci book on audio... his narration adds a lot to the experience! The books you have lined up for the week looks good. Enjoy!

  18. I have the Tuesday Night Survivor's Club to read too, but not immediately in my plans. Hope your weather settles, audio sounds like it was worthwhile.

  19. I really need to listen to the Tucci book ... maybe next month??

  20. I wish I had listened to the Tucci book on audio. I enjoyed reading the book, but I bet it is even better to hear him read it.

    Wow. Days of Our Lives. That was my mom's favorite and she hooked me on it, way back when. I wonder how long it has been on tv.

  21. I'm listening to Taste now too! My husband and I also really like Evil, but we have yet to start the most recent season. We might do so after the kids' school year is over and we can afford to stay up a bit later. Have a great week! - Melinda @ A Web of Stories

  22. I watched a couple of Tucci's episodes and enjoyed them. I should look for the book. Come see my week >a href="">here. Happy reading!

  23. Stanely Tucci's series and book have been on TBR/TBW lists. Hope to get to them soon. Glad you enjoyed it. Hope you have a great week!

  24. Taste has been very popular. I haven’t heard of Evil, I’ll have to look it up.

    Wishing you a great reading week
