The Weekend Review - September 17th-19th

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 too much happening this week.  I had a doctor's appointment with a new-to-me doctor.  I have to have an endoscopy and colonoscopy in November. The endoscopy is to check out the acid reflux which could be causing my chronic cough.  The colonoscopy is a routine screening.  Not thrilled about having either but they need to be done.  

We've been having a wet week in my part of Florida this week.  Loud thunder and heavy rains.  This is the type of weather that just makes me want to read more. I completed three books this week.  Two short ones and one full length.  All were enjoyable.

My blog was busy this week with many blog tours.  Starting next week, I will be doing less of them for awhile.  I'm taking a break...sort of.  I'll still be doing weekly memes and reviewing whatever I read, but not as many tours for now.  I'll probably pick things up in November again.

As for viewing, I just started a series on Peacock called Devil in Ohio with Emily Deschanel.  It's a suspense/thriller and pretty good, so far.  I think there are only 8 episodes.

So, what's been going on in your corner of the world?  What are you reading and/or watching?  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. I got access to so many freebie ebooks that I stopped looking for them as I couldn't read them all. Have fun with yours.

  2. I haven't read Sophie Kelly in a while. Hope you enjoy the books.

  3. I hope your endoscopy and colonoscopy go well in November. I haven't yet had a endoscopy, but I have been through a couple colonoscopies. They are never pleasant. I hope they are able to find the cause of your cough and that they can resolve it. Your possible upcoming reads all sound so good! I love kitties on covers! I hope you have a great week and enjoy your reading!

  4. That's a huge number of books! I can't even scan all the titles. I guess you hope it keeps raining!

    best... mae at

  5. I hope that all your scopies go well. I try to limit myself to maybe 2 or 3 blog tours a month, but I have gone over a couple of times - it is so hard with so many interesting new books coming out!

    Have a good weekend!

  6. Colonoscopies are always a running joke in improv. although quite important for sure. I'm glad you're keeping up with your health its quite important.

  7. Good luck on your medical procedures. I get you, not looking forward to it but a necessary thing. Our rain in north Florida finally quit!

  8. I hope you find comfort in the time leading up to your tests in November. Looks like a wonderful selection of books. I will need to check out Last Pen Standing. I love the idea of a stationery shop mystery series. :-)

  9. Lots of books added to your stash this week - look at all those cats on the Halloween covers! I've had to really cut back on the Freebies....I have way more than I can keep up with - BUT, they're free. Sigh. I'm just trying to be more discriminating when I choose one. Hope you get time to settle in with a really good book this week.

  10. Sounds like a good reading week. I also prefer to read when it's raining, I don't want to go anywhere!! Have a great week!

  11. I've been trying to cut back on tours too a bit. I need to get a colonoscopy soon I think. I think I've reached the age. Ugh. Hope you have a good week!

  12. I had both a endoscopy and colonoscopy this year for the same reasons. Fortunately, it's been very helpful. I've been on some great GERD meds and it's helped me a ton! I hope yours yields the same type of results. :D

  13. Sorry you need those exams- hope they both some out good. I wish good shows made more episodes. XO

  14. Good luck with your tests.

    Seems I am not sticking with my goal of fewer book tours this year. I also have several coming up.

    Nice group of books this week. That Christmas one looks good. Hope you enjoy them all.

  15. I love good reading weeks! I just finished Death in Door County and really enjoyed it. I hope the procedures go well and you can get some good solutions. Have a wonderful week!

  16. It's so easy to get caught up in blog tours and the like. I have just realised that I have two in three days which is bad planning on my part.

    Have a good week.

  17. Good luck with your appointments. These books are all new to me. We're having rain and it's turning colder and I just want to read. Happy reading!

  18. Good luck with your upcoming procedures. Nice looking books too. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  19. I have quite a few series on my TV watchlist but I’m not really feeling anything in particular right now.
    I hope the procedures go smoothly.

    Wishing you a great reading week

  20. Sorry you have to go through all these doctor appointments, I hope things turn out ok for you.
    Ooh, a novel in Door County. Was it good?
    And all these cat books sound fun.
    Here is my post:

  21. Its always good to take a break a nd come back to a fresh start. Looks like some great reads.

  22. Nice to have fewer blog tours for a little while Ouch to the Dr appts, none of us like them for sure.

  23. I'm glad you are taking a little break from blog tours. It helps me to slow down some times.

    Good luck with all the doctor's appointments.

  24. May you ace the tests and enjoy a slower pace. Great reads!

  25. Good luck with those tests. I've had a colonoscopy in the past. Enjoy your week and your books, and I also loved Devil in Ohio. The ending made me hope for more to come! Here are my WEEKLY UPDATES
