The Weekend Review - August 6th-8th

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!  

It continues to be hot and humid in Florida, but that's what it is in Florida 😀  I continue to stay inside with the a/c.  

Our broken refrigerator is now fixed and working better than ever.  That's a huge relief.  I have it all set up inside the way I want and it looks like new.

I'm finally all caught up with Evil.  I think there are two more episodes coming in the next couple of weeks  I still have to catch up with Stranger Things.

I managed to read two books this week.  They were good ones.  I've been doing a good job at limiting the number of review requests I accept.  Soon I'll just have NetGalley and Edelweiss books to read.  That's fine.  I can catch up with those too. 

Not too much else going on here.  Basically, it's been quiet.  I hope you all are having a great weekend and have a great upcoming week!

Blog Tours and Reviews coming up soon...


  1. Hope you're having a good weekend as well! Glad to hear the refrig is back to normal. :)

  2. I love summer and heat, but I love it because I of my AC. I understand what you are saying about Florida weather.

  3. Hi Yvonne! I also got Vampires and Villains, but haven't started yet.

    Glad to hear your fridge is fixed and better than ever - so lovely when that happens hey!

    Have a good week ahead and happy reading.

  4. I've just come back from Wales on holiday and am missing the rainy weather. I have come home to sun and a hose ban coming in next week!

    Your current read looks good! I need to ignore the kindle freebies as I don't have time to read them - it is very difficult though!!!!

    Have a great week!

  5. Where you live in Florida is just like where I live in Texas---summer is going to be hot and humid. We always have a lovely breeze, and that's nice.

    I'm glad you are finding ways to manage your incoming books. I used to love to get books-for-review in the mail, but now I prefer to limit those.

    I hope you have a good week, Yvonne.

  6. So hot here too..ugh. So I don't think I will ever be caught up on netgalley or edelweiss but I have tried to limit my grabs! :)

    Have a great week and happy reading!
    Week in Review

  7. Glad that you were able to get to so many books and stay cool.

  8. Good morning! Hope you're having a good Sunday. As usual, looks like you've got a good haul of cozies this week. Thanks for giving me tips on where you get your extensive freebies; I'll check it out.
    me this week:

  9. Glad you're back in business with the refrigerator! We've been hot and humid all week. When I compare it to our FL location, there doesn't seem to be a lot of difference, lol! Your books this week look good - enjoy!

  10. I can't imagine living in Florida. I live in Central Maryland and it is way too hot and humid for what I can tolerate. I enjoy basking in the A/C, but I can't wait for cooler weather so I can start taking my walks again. Have a great week!! :-)

  11. Glad your fridge is fixed! Have a great week.

  12. I always love a good Kindle freebie! ❤

  13. Yay to the fridge!!!! That must be a relief to have that thing working properly again. I need to have my dang oven / stove top looked at. Either there is something WRONG with it or else at least 3 heating elements are all on the fritz at the same time.

  14. Happy to hear that your fridge is fixed! Something Fishy This Way Comes looks great. What a cover! 😸 And title!
    Have a wonderful week ahead!

  15. Those cozies look fun! Good job on finishing two books in a week. Enjoy the rest of your reads!

  16. Love all the cozies. Happy reading this week!

  17. Quiet weeks and a couple of books read is a win I think. NIce to be able to execute a No to review books that overwhelm.

  18. Quiet is good.
    Wishing you a great reading week

  19. You have some great looking books! Thanks for sharing, and here are my WEEKLY UPDATES

  20. I try to limit the review books I accept, but usually end up with a bunch all coming out the same day. My September 6 stack is looming over my choices this week. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  21. It feels like Florida here lately- I can't wait until fall. We just finished Picard and are going to try the new Star Trek series.

  22. So glad the refrigerator is fixed! And what would we do without AC? I'm trying to limit my intake of review books with mixed results! Have a great week!
