The Weekend Review - August 27th-29th

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!  

As August and summer come to an end, I had a pretty good reading week.  I finished three books this week.  In August I read 7 books.  With a few days left in the month, I may get one more in but I'm not sure.  Still I'm on track with my Goodreads challenge so that's good.

I started watching a show called For All Mankind.  It's an alternative history through the '60's, '70's and '80's regarding Nasa and the Apollo missions.  The first season was really good and I'm about to start the second season.  It's on Apple TV+.  

I haven't really been doing very much else.  It remains hot and humid here, so I'm usually inside with my a/c running 😀

How has your week been?  Read or watch anything good?  Hope you all have a great week!

I'm currently reading...

I finished reading ...

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.  


  1. Three books in a week is excellent!

    I need to not read your freebie Kindle haul as they all look very tempting!

    Have a great weekend!

  2. I haven't heard of For Mankind. I'll have to check it out. Here's my Sunday Post:

  3. I understand wanting to just hunker down inside in the air conditioning. We've had lots of hot and now we are in a rainy pattern. Fortunately, it has been cooling off.

    I finished three books last week, and all three were really good...that's a great week for me.

    I hope you have a good week, Yvonne!

  4. For Mankind sounds great. I'm re-watching Seinfeld for the second time. I was surprised that I never saw the final episode. A lot of actors have commented how politically incorrect that show was back then.

  5. Hi Yvonne, The hot/humid weather has made me be indoors more as well which has helped reading. It's getting less humid here. I'm eyeing a few good titles on your blog for the RIP Challenge. Hope you have a cooler week!

  6. Your books look good. I read two this week, which is closer to my usual numbers (from earlier in the year). Enjoy your week! Here are my WEEKLY UPDATES

  7. I struggled in August with my reading because of some other things that came up, but still did get a few books read. I'm looking forward to starting a few more after Labor Day Weekend. Have a great week! :)

  8. Looks like you've read some good books and have more good ones to read. It's cooling down here some but still hot and humid enough that I'm not outside for more than a few minuets.

  9. That show sounds like something my hubby would like. Right now we are binge watching The Expanse on Amazon. There are 6 seasons and I just learned of it. :)

  10. I had a low reading week but hope to do better this next week :)

  11. Congrats on reading 7 books this month. This month has been a big fat dud for me as far as reading's concerned. I'm hoping to finish a book before Wednesday so I can at least say I read one book.

    For Mankind sounds interesting. I'll have to check it out. I really love alternate history stories.

    I hope you have a great week!

  12. So many interesting looking covers/titles. Sheesh - these blog Sundays are murder on my TBR list! So many books to learn about.

  13. I've heard really good things about For Mankind. I want to try it.

  14. That's a lot of books! Way to go. It's still pretty hot here too. Looking forward to Fall and a cooler breeze in the evening.
    I've been wanting to watch For Mankind. Glad you liked it.

  15. I've been staying inside with the ac as much as possible too. For Mankind sounds interesting and a bit different. I think my husband would love it. Have a great week!

  16. I dislike humid weather, hot clear weather is manageable but throw in humid and I am done! Sounds like a good reading and viewing week though.

  17. For All Mankind sounds good. I've been watching season 3 of Never Have I Ever and I just finished season 2 of Only Murders in the Building. I really like The Outcast cover, I hope the book is a good as it looks! Have a great week!

  18. Great week! I spent a lot of time indoors too even though our weather hasn't been too hot. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  19. For All Mankind sounds interesting. I like that the cast becomes more diverse over time. If I had Apple TV I suspect I would be now watching it.

  20. It’s definitely been hot here! Oh, ps I think I must have learned about Bait and Witch from you, Yvonne. Have you read this one? Anyhow, I just got it from the library! Excited to read it with Olivia!

    Your current read looks great, I hope you love it!
